OVERVIEW OF CONTENTS

There is a themed contents card included each month that outlines the items in the box.

The reverse always features artwork based on the theme – this is a lovely moody look at the Hogwarts castle under Dementor patrol. I like sticking up these cards at my desk at work, I have a few from this box on display at the moment. :)

Something a little different this month – the items were wrapped in a letter from Hogwarts, lol.

Snitch Soap from Bamber Botanicals: that is a clever bit of packaging, putting the Snitch wings on the plastic. But looking at the Etsy shop this is from, I do wish the actual soap itself had been designed to look like the Snitch, as there are some intricately designed soaps sold by the same person. Still, I appreciate the inclusion of a useful non-accessory item, following on from the candle in last month’s box, so this is neat.

Lightning Bolt Earrings (on Estsy for £2.50 or $4.22 AUD): The cardboard backing that the earrings are sent on had these odd dust marks on them – not sure why, and it does take away from the presentation, but the earrings themselves are in pristine condition.

5

Wrap Style Bracelet: (on Estsy for £4 or $6.75 AUD; also on Aliexpress for about $1 USD). This is a lovely bracelet, and one I like a lot, especially as I already have a similar version! It’s very cute with the owl, Snitch and Deathly Hallows charms. <3

Closer look at the details on this bracelet – I think the leather braiding is a cool touch!

6

Charm Necklace (on ebay for $9.49 USD or $12.74 AUD; also on etsy for £20.40 or $34.44). This is definitely the hero item of the box! I haven’t seen a necklace like this before that’s so laden with charms!

6a

There’s tons of gorgeous details here, so much to look at!

6b

I might be wrong, but I believe these are from left to right: the Mirror of Erised, Hufflepuff’s Cup, Slytherin’s Locket, a Snitch and the Sorting Hat. That last makes me snicker, look at the grumpy look on the Hat’s face!

6c

These are the Deathly Hallows, a lightning bolt, Ravenclaw’s Diadem, a reference to Snape’s devotion to Lily, a Death Eater tattoo and Tom Riddle’s Diary (after it’s been stabbed with Gryffindor’s Sword, given its condition).

This is a great box for Americans, it’s good value for money and you receive a range of gorgeous accessories and other cool items to thrill your fannish heart.
