The Fan Empire September 2016 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure


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 Fandom Symbols! This brings so much happiness to my fangirl heart because there are just so many wonderful symbols that can be represented. Something a little different than previous months is that the content card includes prices, I love this touch because now I can really see how much my subscription saves me.


Gold Plated Lightning Bolt Necklace on Etsy ($22). The chain length on this necklace is perfect for a scoop neck, it will highlight the simple polished Harry Potter scar. I like that it’s not overly embellished and is super light weight.

Multi-Fandom Charm Bracelet ($20). I love that there are so many symbols on this charm bracelet, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Sherlock and Percy Jackson just to name a few. I also enjoy that it is silver instead of gold. What I don’t like is just how heavy this bracelet is and I’m not a fan of the splashes of color given with the beads. I will be wearing this at all comicon type functions, as long as I don’t have to type.

Gold Multi-Fandom Key Chain ($6). I love this key chain enough that I’m going to be turning it into a Christmas tree ornament, I don’t generally do key chains because I think it needs a place of honor. The thing that makes this amazing in my eyes is being able to take one symbol and add to it without losing track of all the fandom symbols represented. How much better can you get than all the greats into one handheld piece.

Redbubble Four Elements 14×14 Pillow Case ($18). Things I love about this pillow case in no particular order… they gave me the size, I would have inevitably bought the incorrect size left to my own devices. It has ALL my favorites: Star Wars, Lord of the Ring, Doctor Who, and Harry Potter. It’s colorful without hurting my eyes and it will look amazing as the focal point of my bedroom.

Deathly Hallows Symbol Card Art Print ($5). The Fan Empire always has a postcard art print, this month is no different. Back when these came in a box there was never any damage to the corners but this month all the corners are bent and peeling which makes me think it won’t be getting displayed. The condition is so sad because the Deathly Hallows symbol is on the forefront of a beautiful and colorful backdrop.

I’m overjoyed by this month’s Fan Empire. I love Harry Potter but was starting to think that was the only series that this box was going to showcase but I was proven wrong in a delightful way. I didn’t think it was possible to mix and match some of the most well-known symbols out there to create amazing one-of-a-kind pieces. This month The Fan Empire has outdone themselves, I’m super excited to see what happens next.

What did you think of The Fan Empire this month??

    Fan Empire is a scam. I paid for a 3 month subscription in August. I haven’t gotten my September or October “bags”. I’ve tried emailing (multiple times), facebooking them. No replies. Don’t subscribe to them, it’s a scam.
