The Fan Empire delivers 4-6 high-quality fandom magically geeky items every month. The Fan Empire used to have the coolest boxes but now I get decently priced bags. The first time I got the bag I was disappointed but no longer because The Fan Empire never fails to impress.

The content card which is never boring lets us know what we will find as well as information on staying connected via social media. Our theme this month Spellbinding & Spooky.

Nothing says Halloween like the Sanderson sisters! Hocus Pocus is my favorite movie for October and it reminds me of my childhood. This print makes me so happy but it didn’t come listed with a price tag or even listed on the contents card.

Find the Horcruxes Custom Notebook from @ CustomMade retails for $15. I love how the flat pen tucks neatly into the cover of the notebook and that it’s printed on recycled paper.

Eye-See-You Halloween candy retails for $.75. I hate gummy candies but my daughter was very pleased with this squishy marshmallow. It took all that is in me to even touch it in the bag.

Nightmare Before Christmas Pocket Watch Locket Necklace from Esty retails for $15. The details in this locket are beyond perfect. It’s both creepy and beautiful rolled into one.

The inside is just as much fun. I love that Jack has a smile on his face. The other great thing is that there is a plastic stopper in the watch so the battery didn’t die prior to me getting to use this watch.

Esty also brings this Voldemort’s Horcrux Charm Bracelet retailing for $18. Thank goodness this isn’t as heavy as it looks and it’s super detailed. The colored beads are a little on the cheap side and in my opinion bring the overall charm down a bit.

Voldemort Postcard Print from CustomPrints retails for $5. Now prints are something that Fan Empire does better than most. I love the every facial line is pronounced and just how pretty the background is. Once again I do wish it came in a protective cover because I hate bent corners.

This month’s bag had some good items but felt a little thrown together. The random candy was completely unnecessary and I was very disappointed in the price tags on a few the items. I was also disappointed getting a charm bracelet for the second month in a row, it just doesn’t show a lot of creativity. On a high note, the prints just keep getting better and better… but it would be awesome if the artist would sign them.

    Hello
    Do you have any idea how to contact the people in charge of this box?
    I subscribed to this service in September of last year and it was the worst mistake of my life. Every month since then I have continually tried to contact the company in regard to missing packages through emails facebook and Instagram and every time I was either ignored or I had to start from step one which was “do you want a replacement? “ I would answer yes then never hear back from them again, and thus it cycle repeats itself.
    Over the last 12 month of a years subscription I have received 3 package in total (which as they are dated were shipped in the same month I received them), I have continually asked where thing have been, what happened, for a replacement or refund to no success.
    More upsetting is the fact that I still receive emails from the company about packages been over stocked ad you being able to sell off spare creates while I am left here with nothing.
    Overall this has been a very stressful very expensive wast of time for me and I am at my wits end, what can you do when the company you brought a product from refuses to uphold the agreement and refuses to contact you?
