The Fan Empire October 2016

The Fan Empire is a monthly subscription that sends you out 4-6 pieces of fandom merchandise.  Items can be anything from posters to t-shirts and are based around a different theme each month.  Previous fandoms include The Hunger Games and Harry Potter.  Boxes start at $14.95 a month but do go down a little with a longer plan.  Shipping to Canada was $5.50.  I am always wary of the fandom boxes because if you get a month that is not one of yours then it can feel like a waste.  Let’s see how we get on with this one.

The bubble mailer is such a fun colour.  They add a sticker logo to let you know who sent you something fun

They do include an info card, which they also consider a print so therefore it’s included on the item list.  This is a Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Symbol Postcard, valued at $5.00.  The theme this month is “Fandom Symbols”.

Gold Plated Lightening Bolt Necklace-$22.00

I love this!  It is delicate and while die-hard fans will know what it’s about, you can get away with showing your HP love without everyone knowing.  This came from and Etsy shop.

Multi-Fandom Charm Bracelet-$20.00

So this covers pretty much every fandom there is.  I can’t even name all of them but there is Doctor Who, Sherlock, Game Of Thrones, Harry Potter, and eight more.  It is quite heavy and very jingly on my wrist.  This would definitely not be an every day wear but once in a while it’ll be good.  This is also from Etsy.

Gold Multi-Fandom Keychain-$6.00

So once again my fandom knowledge fails me and I can’t identify all the symbols.  There is the Hunger Games, Harry Potter and two more that I don’t know.  It’s a bit bendy of metal to stand up to much use but it should be okay for a little while. This is off of Etsy too.

The Four Elements 14×14″ Pillow Case-$18.00

So this is totally awesome!!!!!  It has a zipper on the bottom so you can stuff a pillow form into it and make your house way cooler than it had been seconds before.  I need to get me some forms because this is the second case I’ve received and I need them out and in my life.  You can find this at Redbubble.

Once again this one came really, really late.  She says she lets everyone on social media know and occasionally sends an email to subscribers to let them know the same thing.  I just expect them to be super late into the next month.  There were a few things I really enjoyed this time and then the keychain is just not for me.  I have no idea what will show up in this bag and the themes never match what the website says so I’ll wait and see.
