Box Date: March 2019
March’s Fairyloot was their 3 year anniversary, which means we got another purple anniversary box!
As you can see, this box was absolutely packed with goodies! Let’s dive in and see everything closer.
First up, we have some Alice in Wonderland socks. I love the socks that look like pages from books. They’re always fun. I wish these were knee high, though. I don’t ever wear the mid calf length socks.
Next is this absolutely gorgeous lightweight bookshelf scarf. This artwork was done by @sweetsequels I believe. It has so many of my favorites on it (Red Rising, Nevernight, Illuminae, Strange the Dreamer, Six of Crows…etc) which I love! This is definitely my favorite item in the box.
Speaking of Strange the Dreamer… look at this gorgeous little metal bookmark! This was designed by @kdpletters and it’s really pretty. I am weird about tassel bookmarks, so I will probably take that off to use it, but it’s otherwise the perfect thickness and size for me.
Next we have two more tarot cards to add to our growing decks, and I am SO HAPPY to see something other than SJM characters showing up now! Love me some Six of Crows, and I love this artwork of this characters!
We got two books this month, and this was our non-theme one. It looks and sounds like it’s gonna be awesome. I love the foiling on it! And then we also got these super useful page flags. I have come to love page flags for my books to help me easily track down quotes I like for work, so I am always excited to have more!
I usually love character art, and these are incredibly well done, but I only recognize characters from one of the three pieces, so that’s a bummer. Sometimes the artwork is in a style that I adore for itself and so it doesn’t matter, but I don’t connect to these particular ones that way, so I’ll have to wait until I read the books connected to them to see how I feel toward them then. The artist is incredibly talented, I just prefer a different style.
Speaking to that, here is an example of artwork that I love and would hang up despite obviously not having read the book yet, as it is character art related to the book. (I love that they do this, by the way, because then if you love the book you already have merch for it!)
What I love about Fairyloot is that they almost always have sprayed edges on their books now and sprayed edges are really just the coolest thing. I love the ashy green of these this month. And on the backside of the artwork you saw above is the author letter!
And finally we have the theme materials: our Fairyscoop newsletter thing, the spoiler card with the theme artwork on it, and the theme artwork bookmark. But we got an awesome bonus this time: a lapel pin! I’m excited to add it to my collection! I love that it’s totally their logo but because there are no words in the logo, it’s a subtle pin that I would actually wear.
Overall I really enjoyed this month’s box. A lot of good stuff in there. As usual with sub boxes there’s maybe a couple things I won’t use, but in the end I felt the box was still worth it!
