Level Up is a monthly subscription from Loot Crate with exclusive geek and gamer premium wearable accessories themed along with the current Loot Crate theme. You can purchase Level Up separately from Loot Crate – and the wearable items (the shirts/hats/etc) are available in ladies’ sizes, but not the socks. The complete spoilers for April are shown in this review! Be sure to see the Level Up Reviews for reviews of each subscription!
There are now four options:
- Socks: 2 pairs of themed socks for $9.99
- Shirt: 1 shirt for $8.99
- Accessories: 1 or 2 fashion accessories for lady looters (hairbow, cosmetics, jewelry) for $14.99
- Wearable: 1 wearable item like a premium shirt or hat for $14.99
You can also bundle the wearable + socks for $20.99.
Finally the shirt.
Level Up comes with an entire booklet showing every item for the month. The Loot Crate theme for April was Quest!
Level Up invites subscribers to unlock this month’s quest in the new “Experience” part of their website. This is quite a bit for them to take on, and stuff like the magazine hasn’t been updated yet.
A short letter about the theme accompanies the photo of each Level Up item!
I’m going to be honest, when I pulled the shirt out I knew it wasn’t going to be a good review.
Heavyweight Gildan. Ewww. Note that it says size 3XL. This isn’t my size (but you know, if it was, I’d expect the shirt to be the correct size) – it’s my Loot Crate size, because their larger womens shirts run very small. A few months ago the Loot Crate rep told me to just size up “a few sizes” because of their shirts. Hence, my constant reminders to size up for women’s Loot Crate sizes.
It was quite honestly, very very large, which I could tell when I pulled it out of the package. The shirt on top is a 3XL from the same subscription. There’s 14″ of extra fabric on this shirt compared to previous months.
What a great graphic!
The great news is that Level Up now accommodates a larger size range. I see this as a positive. What I don’t see as a positive is the complete lack of communication to its subscribers about this change. I want to know when they add fourteen inches of fabric to clothing. I also want to know if this sizing extends to all the crates! I have reached out to Loot Crate and will update.
Please let us know in the comments what size you ordered and if you got a soft shirt or not and if the sizing changed from previous months!
See the Level Up spoilers page for May for which fandom is for which subscription before subscribing. However, I have definitely noticed a trend to more mass-appeal items in this subscription, so I wouldn’t hesitate to go for a longer term sub if you’re a serious geek like me.
