November 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

November’s Theme: ‘Death and Fortune’ There are no words adequate to explain this pen and the utter chaos that it spawned all US subscribers lol. Scorpio Races themed book tin. I think it’s cute but it’s not an item for me. Will possibly gift it to the spawn. Under the Whispering Door wasn’t a great […]

October 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

October’s Theme: ‘To the Bitter End’ A Black Sun inspired candle. I haven’t lit it yet, but it smells lovely! And it was made and designed by two UK Bookish companies I really like. Caraval inspired measuring cups. Suffice to say I really enjoy useful kitchen items. I am a fan of Witches Steeped in […]

July 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

Here we go! July’s Theme: ‘Never Enough’ I’ve never read Red Rising so a lot of its items I just either attempt to sell (which rarely works out) or I just put them away. I’m not opposed to reading it, it’s just like my life is filling up with fandoms at a scarily rapid pace […]

June 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

Here we go! June’s Theme: ‘Out of the Woods’ So this box has been my favorite box this year, every item just had me totally in love. We’ll begin with this bookmark, inspired by Among the Beasts and Briars, now, I’ve already received my replacement as one of the tiny tines was missing but it’s […]

May 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

Here we go! May’s Theme: ‘Change Your Stars’ So we’re just going to start off with the weakest item of this box. It’s the newest collectible item and it’s an enamel metal key. NOW. That’ snot to say the other ‘illumikeys’ will be this ‘flat’ for me, but this one was. It is based of […]

April 2021 Illumicrate Unboxing

Here we go! April’s Theme: ‘Dearly Departed’ This keychain was cute, it’s not often we get Dread Nation merch but it was a little lacking. I couldn’t really discern the quote and it was so tiny as a keychain that I almost threw the box out with it in it! This cute mason jar was […]

October 2020 Illumicrate Unboxing

  WARNING AHEAD BE:   This box was pretty great, it’s theme was ‘Life and Death’ and was mostly fandom neutral and I was pretty much crazy about every item! These tarot cards are wooden! (nothing on the back so not pictured lol) and I think they’re just so freakin pretty that I can’t get […]
