Fanspirations January 2017

Fanspirations is a monthly delivery of products and presents based off pretty much any fandom you might be a part of.  You can even change which fandom you want to receive every month if you want to.  They offer three sizes of boxes depending on how much of your fandom you want to receive each month.  The Perfect Deal is $13.00 and gives you 2-4 items, Favourite Deal is $30.00 and includes 5-7 items, and Best Deal is $50.00 and sends 8-11 items.  There are 11 open fandoms right now but the whole collection has 14.  You can choose from 4 plan lengths with a slight price break for longer plans.  This one did take a little while to get to me but now that it’s here let’s see what I can fangirl out with.  My plan right now is Whovian and I just went with the Perfect Deal.

20170111_143751This box was quite full but as I haven’t received a box from them since July I was expecting to get a few things.  I had emailed them about it and they said they would look into it.  Shortly after that, I received this box.

20170111_143807There is a Doctor Who necklace.  It is an antique brass chain and pendant.  The pendant has a page under a glass bubble that tells you who the Doctor is.  I really like this and as you can see, it is a licenced item.

20170111_143828Next out we have a Dalek Christmas ornament.  This is one of the greatest things I have ever received in a box.  My hubby got me a TARDIS ornament and now they can live together in perfect Doctor Who harmony.

20170111_143841OOOOO…..a Tenth Doctor vinyl sticker.  This is joining my Eleventh Doctor fez sticker on my laptop.  I have no shame when it comes to the Doctors. None.

20170111_143851Now we have a TARDIS metal keychain.  This is heavy and would work as a weapon in a pinch.  I don’t think I will put this on my keychain just because I don’t want to lose it if the chain breaks.

20170111_143921The most amazing piece in the box is also the biggest.  This is a 20oz. mug.  It has all sorts of Doctor Who images on it.  There are cybermen, the TARDIS, weeping angles, Daleks, and some Christmas images too.  Inside is the Doctor Who logo on one wall. I am so happy right now.

I was going to switch to the Sherlock theme but I’m really loving all the Doctor Who stuff I’m getting.  Such a big decision!!!!  This is a great geek box and I recommend it to anyone who has a love of one of the fandoms!  The shipping issues are a bit of a pain but the items you get are high quality and they are not cheap knockoffs.

20160904_180012

So many things I am loving from this first look!!!! I have no idea which stuff belongs to which month but it’s all fun.

20160904_180026

Bad Wolf Keychain

Bad Wolf is an episode of Doctor Who.  This is a good way to show your love but not shout it if your shy.

20160904_180035

Doctor Who Micro-Figures Series 1-$3.35

I like these blind bag toys but always get something crappy.  My losing streak continues with this one.  I received the Silurian General Restac, which is a good character but I’d have loved a Dalek.

20160904_180106

Rocket POP Keychain Twelfth Doctor-$2.49

This makes up for the figure above.  I love the 12th Doctor.  I’m partial to any of the Scottish Doctors actually.  He has a tiny Sonic Screwdriver in his hand.

20160904_180121

I Heart The Doctor Thigh High Socks-$10.50

These are also awesome.  I don’t know why I would wear them for people to see but I know I will be wearing them.

20160904_180142

The Doctor Ring

They sent me a size 7 which is okay but only my ring finger is a 7.  I guess I need to decide if I want to wear my wedding ring or this one.

20160904_180205

Tardis Word Print

I love that they sent this already in a frame.  So many times these types of things are just in the box and end up damaged.  I love this and will be displaying it, probably next to my Snape one…….

I was going to switch to the Sherlock theme but I’m really loving all the Doctor Who stuff I’m getting.  Such  big decision!!!!  This is a great geek box and I recommend it to anyone who has a love of one of the fandoms!

20160621_202750 20160621_202826

The box has a bog logo sticker on the top to let you know what you’re getting.  The box was quite light and looked empty-ish when I opened it up.  I knew that this box was going to be all about the Eleventh Doctor so  there were no surprises there.

20160621_202914

First out was a clear vinyl sticker which is now living on the lid of my laptop.  It is River Song’s way of greeting the Doctor  and features the Fez that was just awesome.

20160621_202857

BBC DW Fez Necklace-$8.50

To continue with the fez we have an officially licensed necklace with both the fez and the bow tie worn by the Doctor.  This is cute and a small way to show your love without non-fans thinking you’re insane.

20160621_202835

Funko POP Eleventh Doctor Vinyl Figure-$9.95

He’s so cute!!!!  Eleven is one of my favourite Doctors and this little guy has his Sonic Screwdriver in his hand.  This more than makes the box for me.  I am unbelievably happy to have this n my hands.  Pure fandom joy happening right now!

Knowing ahead of time that the Whovian box was going to be about the Eleventh Doctor made switching to a new Fandom very easy. There  is a value this month of $18.45.  I’m not sure yet if I’m going to switch or stay with this Fandom but it is very easy to change it up so that’s great.  I love that you get to choose and not just hope like hell they don’t pick something you can’t stand, which is a chance you take with some other boxes.

20160510_173340 20160510_173503

The box it ships in is plain with a sticker logo.  Opening it up I could see wonderful things! There is not an info card, but as I mentioned last month with the huge variety of boxes they would be sending out it’s probably not practical.

20160510_173521

Harry Potter Ravenclaw Knee High Socks-$11.99

Yay!!!! I love socks. I love Harry Potter. These make me so happy I can’t even.  They are half blue and half black and have the Ravenclaw symbol on the front top.  Knee highs are great to wear with boots and that is something that has been happening a bunch lately for me so that works out even more.

20160510_173536

Luna Lovegood Funko Pop!-$10.99

I don’t have a huge collection of these guys but next to my Abominable from Rudolph this would be my favourite.  They are so cute and Luna is a great character.  She has her wand in her hand and her apple earrings in.

20160510_173735

Harry Potter Ravenclaw Arm Party Bracelet Set by Bioworld-$23.99

I’m beginning to sense a common factor here…..This is a set of five different styles of bracelets that can be worn together or separately to show your house colours.  With the exception of the blue one on the top right of the photo, all the rest either say Ravenclaw, have the initial, or the house crest.  These are all quite small, which is okay for me since I have tiny wrists but it might have been an issue for some people.

20160510_173856

Phoenix Necklace-$4.99

I’m not entirely sure that this is a phoenix but that’s the best guess I have.  There is nothing on the tag to identify it.  There are some words printed in the bottom of the wings but they are unreadable.  This is still nice though and surprisingly to me, I want to wear it.  I usually shy away from something so loud but I think it’s pretty.

So this month we were sorted into Ravenclaw and came out fully accessorized.  There  is a value this month of $51.96, which I think is great.  I’m enjoying the Harry Potter stuff but I think I will switch it up to another Fandom for next month.  I can always come back.   I love that you get to choose and not just hope like hell they don’t pick something you can’t stand, which is a chance you take with some other boxes.

20160414_194125

Everything shipped out in this bright red padded envelope with a big sticker to let me know what was in there.  There is no info card enclosed but I’m guessing there are so many variety of boxes sent out that that might be difficult.

20160414_194407

First out of the bag is an Advanced Potion Making bookmark.  These sell in the Etsy shop for $2.67 and are magnetic so you lay them over the page and it sticks to itself.  This is such a simple idea and I love it.  I am forever losing my bookmarks so getting another one that in a very small way shows my love of Harry Potter.

20160414_194450

There is nothing to identify where this bracelet is from but I like it.  I have the smallest wrists ever and this not only fits me but looks nice on me.  The words under the bubble say “Turn to page 394”, which unless you have watched HP more than once you wouldn’t have a clue.  For you Muggles out there it’s something Snape says as he walks into a classroom.

20160414_194514

This I love and am going to have to find a frame for!  It is word art in the shape of Snape’s head.  It is full of references to Snape and is 6×8″.  They are selling 8×10″ ones on the site for $19.00 so based on square inch price this would be worth $11.50.

20160414_194540

Last up is a tote bag with the Patronus one it.  I didn’t get a picture of the other side but it says ” After All This Time” and then reverses to “Always”.  It is not a very thick bag but will be good for books or other not too heavy items.

This month is obviously a tribute to Alan Rickman.  All of the pieces are based from his character and that’s okay with me.  It was a sad day in Potterville when he passed.  I had no idea what to really be expecting from this box and I am very happy with what I ended up with.  I’ll probably switch my fandoms up every once in awhile because they do have a few more of my favourites listed!  I love that you get to choose and not just hope like hell they don’t pick something you can’t stand.
