Fandom of the Month Club Unboxing: January 2017

Hello, everyone! This is the monthly segment Fandom of the Month Club Unboxing! Fandom of the Month Club is a mailing service where you pay a monthly subscription fee to receive a box full of geeky goodies. I've been subscribed since May 2016, and I have received Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Wizard of Oz, and Harry Potter themed boxes, among others. All of it is exclusive to Fandom of the Month and a surprise every time! This is a geek girl's dream.

This month's box is Star Wars-themed and it includes:
  • Droid #Squad Zipper Pouch
  • Princess Leia Magnet
  • Jedi Necklace
  • "The Force Is Strong with This One" Bracelet
  • Death Star Earrings
  • TIE Fighter Ring
Droid #Squad Zipper Pouch:
Instead of the regular cinch pouch, this month includes a zipper pouch with a loop for holding. This pouch is the perfect size for change, credit cards, cash, and other small handbag items. I personally like this better than the cinch pouch, and I love C-3PO, R2-D2, and BB-8 being on it with #Squad. I smiled when I saw this.

Princess Leia Magnet:
This 3 1/2" by 2" magnet is perfect for hanging pictures or important notes on your fridge or whiteboard. It has a glossy finish, which will protect it from water and stains.This is a simple Princess Leia design. Nostalgia and a bit of sadness hit me when I opened the box to find this. It is a good tribute to Carrie Fisher, our favorite sci-fi princess.

Jedi Necklace:
This is such a simple and feminine idea for a necklace. The nifty cursive design of the Jedi pendent makes for easy hanging from the chain, and the green jewel the same color as a lightsaber was a nice touch. My only annoyance was I had to untangle this when I opened it from the package.

"The Force Is Strong with This One" Bracelet:
This is such a cool idea for a bracelet! I've never worn a bracelet like this, but I love anything made out of leather. The quote on the pendent made me smirk. 

The bracelet works like a belt that you have to wrap once around your wrist to fasten. I have large wrists so I have to fasten it near the last hole. This reminds me of a Jedi's belt.

Death Star Earrings:
Intricate and stylish Death Star earrings! These are simple dangle earrings perfect for seeing the next Star Wars film (or rewatching Rogue One if your emotions can handle it).

TIE Fighter Ring:
This is so cute, and I love the jewel for a stylish touch. It's a thicker and sturdier ring and maybe a bit masculine, but it reminds me a lot of the Sith, so it's perfect.

9 out of 10

I'm not as big of a fan of Star Wars as others, but even this box made me squee a little bit. This jewelry is so feminine and stylish I can't help but like it. I'm so going to wear these to see The Last Jedi when it releases December 2017! If you want to subscribe to Fandom of the Month Club, you can on their website for $13 a month, not including shipping. (It costs me about $17 total including shipping.) It's a worthwhile investment, and if you don't like the fandom, the items make great presents for someone else!

Are you part of this fandom? Which of these items is your favorite?
