T-Shirt, figure, Soap…
Nothing like a few macabre geeky items to brighten up a Saturday! The February Loot Crate came to my door this afternoon, and happy unwrapping occurred. This month’s crate featured items from Deadpool
, and The Walking Dead
. There was a Deadpool figure, a Deadpool Tacos?! T-shirt, a mystery Walking Dead figure, a Loot Crate Pin featuring a zombified crate out in search of victims (Does this make anyone else think of The Luggage? Please say yes!), and, best of all, a Walker-Ear necklace/soap on a rope collection. Of course there is. Also included is a handy-dandy booklet with tips for surviving the zombie apocalypse, interviews, and a taco recipe.
The booklet is worth reading–the zombie survival tips are funny, there’s an interview with Rahul Kohl (Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti on iZombie), and some quizzes. Deadpool’s Taco recipe isn’t that unusual, but the side comments are worth it. And the Deadpool T-Shirt is great for sitting around reading things like Loot Crate booklets or eating tacos in.
- The inside of the box. I love the Loot Crate attention to detail.
- Who doesn’t want zombie-ear soap?
- In case you need another taco recipe
- Deadpool. Who else?
- Oooh, a mystery!
- Zombie Loot Crate Pin is coming to get you!
The February 2016 LVL UP+ attire
The Level Up additions included a lovely (?) Silence of the Lambs
T-shirt, a long-sleeved Walking Dead
socks, and glow-in-the-dark Dark Mark Harry Potter
socks, as well as some blood-drenched nail-art from Espionage Cosmetics and a Walking Dead Cherokee Rose locket.
I’m trying to figure out when and where someone could go into a dark room just after the Dark Mark socks have been in the light for maximum impact. The Deadpool socks are better for daytime wear. Would the Silence of the Lambs T-shirt be a conversation starter or stopper? Which do you think? Would coupling it with the bloody nail art from Espionage Cosmetics be going overboard?
The metal hook needed for fastening the Cherokee Rose locket to its chain fell off and disappeared right after I opened the envelope up; I’m going to have to do a little jury-rigging on that. Shouldn’t be too hard.
- A good conversation starter at the dinner table
- Close-up on the Walking Dead T-shirt pocket
- Glow in the Dark Dark Mark Socks. See how many times you can say that quickly.Also Deadpool socks.
- These are also good conversation starters. Use them for finger food.
And that’s the lot this month!
