World of Wizardry August 2018 Pudding

World of Wizardry August 2018 Sherbet lemon

Recipes: Petunia’s Pudding and Sherbet Lemons

Two servings of sweet this month – candy and pudding! “Aunt Petunia’s masterpiece of a pudding, the mountain of cream and sugared violets, was floating up near the ceiling. On top of a cupboard in the corner crouched Dobby…” One of the best scenes in the early books involves this tragic dinner party and the beloved house elf. Let’s just hope when I make this recipe, no one will come through and ruin it!

Exclusive Wizardry Knee High Socks – Listed Price $15.77

These socks invoke Gryffindor pride with the red and gold colors, but the items in the pattern will speak to all wizards; I see Dark Marks, glasses, and owl cage, a stag that I assume is a Patronus and wands; and of course – lots of lightning bolts! The socks are soft and I like that they’re knee-height; they’ll be great with tall boots this fall.

Exclusive House Books Pin – Listed Price $10.51

This is such a clever incorporation of my chosen house! Each of these has the different house scarves on top; I, of course, received Ravenclaw’s, with the traditional blue and bronze colors from the books (Ravenclaw house colors are blue and silver in the movies). And look at that spelling on “Defence” – so cool that it’s the British version!

World of Wizardry August 2018 Bracelet pkg World of Wizardry August 2018 bracelet out

Harry Potter House Bracelet – Listed Price $9.19

Every time I see a younger person, they’re wearing an armful of bracelets – it reminds me of when I was younger! These alphabet bracelets were so popular when I was growing up, and I like the inclusion of the house crest, as well as the movie house colors (blue and silver, as previously discussed!).

Exclusive Harry Potter Four Print Set – Listed Price $19.72

Dear readers – I think I hit the motherlode! These posters are so awesome because they’re so immersed in the fandom itself  – they’re presented from the wizarding world without branding or any elements to take you out of the story. My favorite is the one advertising the Quidditch World Cup; I’ve had my eye on that one in particular, but all four of them will definitely be going on the wall in my guest room, for sure!

Exclusive Magic & Spells T-Shirt – Listed Price $13.14

It doesn’t happen every month, but every once in a while these T-shirts are just a little badass! I love the strong design on this and the four elements of magic they chose. This a great example of a double-take fandom item; some people might get it, but others might not – and might take a second look!

World of Wizardry August 2018 Brothers shirt World of Wizardry August 2018 Brothers shirt close

Exclusive Three Brothers T-Shirt – Listed Price $13.14

One of the most beautiful elements of the entire movie series is the story of The Three Brothers, told by Hermione and illustrated in the style of a carousel lamp. It’s mesmerizing, and one of my favorite visual elements of the film. Using this for a shirt is brilliant! I love the design as well as the yellow ink – the only thing that would make this shirt perfect is if it were black.

Verdict: I was very happy with the box this month! I think two T-shirts added a lot of value, and the socks and bracelet are things that I can wear regularly to show off my fandom loyalty. I love, love, loved the poster set – they’re going on the wall immediately, and that little pin is so cute – the perfect addition to my fleece jacket for fall!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, order by 10/20 to receive the October box.
