I tore my previous iPhone 7 Plus Gameboy Case. I took the opportunity to buy a new one on eBay. I always loved the Pokémon Gameboy Colour from the 90s and I thought that would be the perfect look.
My boss gave me a pair of glovely touch screen gloves for Christmas! Maybe he thinks I am on my phone too much (sometimes). These are awesome. The entire glove is touch screen compatible (not just the tips like most gloves). They also have a little magnetic logo to keep both gloves together for all the clutsy people who lose gloves (me).
Last but not least, the tag is even a microfibre glove. Now I can stay warm while I tweet and blog this winter.
I remember when I was a kid, I would go to Burger King or McDonalds, which ever one would have Pokemon toys and try to collect them all. I can’t believe they are back again. I can’t believe such a franchise has been popular across different generation of kids.
The toys are much cooler now! I even received a holographic Pokemon card with it. Kids nowadays get it so much cooler.
My couch needed some cushions so I decided to order these Tetris blocks from ThinkGeek. A set of 5 costs $99, which is on the pricier side but it’s such a unique statement piece. I considered making them but the materials alone would’ve costed me around the same.
They are super comfy and huggable and now I can play Tetris irl.
Nash and I attended our first ever Atomic Lollipop this past Friday and Saturday. It’s a unique convention that was a mixture of Comicon, Anime North with the 90s mixed in.
Friday night, they brought to life the Much Video Dance parties of my high school days. Later in the night, it filled up with the people dancing to the music of their childhood. I saw videos from the Venga Boys, Eiffel 65 and Chumbawamba.
The hilariously costumed Tupperware Remix Party provided soundtracked a glittery dance party.
We played archery tag. It was my first time trying archery and I wasn’t very good at aiming but it was so much fun! They provided us with 10 minutes of training before we were headed off for a game of tag with 10 people.
Saturday’s evening entertainment included Elijah Wood DJing with his duo Wooden Wisdom.
Then one of my 90s dreams came true and I saw Prozzak reunite! REMEMBER PROZZAK?!
Before heading out we saw the fire circus performance which thankfully waited for all the Prozzak fans to be done!
Atomic Lollipop was truly a magical experience and I’m looking forward to what adventures they’ll bring next year.
December’s Loot Crate will be the final I’ll receive for a while. After too much holiday spending, I had to unsubscribe for the time being, until I have more extra income. Here’s what was inside! You can also watch my video unboxing here.
Every fighter needs some energy right? They gave some to us in the form of “Energems” bite sized mint chocolates. 3 of them apparently equals one energy drink. They also threw in a coupon for $1 off in case we need to recharge.
The more random (but awesome) of the items was the Tin-tastic activity kit from Funko. Inside each tin are stickers, pencils and erasers (mine are in the shape of Iron Man). The tin also makes great storage for any weird collectibles you might have.
I’m sure you’ve all experience the thing where your controller pads have fallen out leaving something that occasional cuts your thumbs. Well Grip It provided the solution to those problems with these mini pads.
You can get your own crates here! Use the code LOOT2014 for $3 off.
On Friday I received my November Loot Crate! As a Canadian looter, this was the first time it arrived before the month was over and any spoiler newsletters were sent out. This box was particularly heavy. You can watch my video unboxing here or read about the items below.
This month looters received random sets of playing cards. Mine happened to the Bicycle Guardians set. The dark colours make them the perfect mystery for magic tricks. Originally I thought they were inspired by Magic the Guardian, but they are based on ancient scriptural art.
The most mysterious thing was the BFAST Shake. It’s the new breakfast on the go.
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah BATMAN! Mighty Wallet provided this interesting origami-made wallet. I can’t believe it’s made out of a single sheet of paper.
I’m excited for the December one (it is Christmas after all). It’ll probably sell out like last month but you can still sign up at: http://mbsy.co/lootcrate/176357 with $3 off!
