The theme of the May 2015 Loot Crate was Unite. Check out my video review above and a breakdown of the items included below.

Note: Some links are Amazon affiliate links. If your cookies are cleared and you make a purchase after clicking through, then a small commission will be yielded for this site.

Exclusive Green Ranger T-shirt by Flophouse
approximately $10
power rangers tee
This is an exclusive, but I just value all tees at $10 or so. It was teased by LC that the tee for May would be Power Rangers related, so I ordered it in Robert Sunshine’s size, instead of mine. He’s the Power Ranger fan out of this couple. As usual, this shirt is made by Gildan. It is 100% cotton, so it does shrink if you don’t wash it in cold water. I forgot this time, but it still fits him fine. I’ve noticed that tees from Loot Crate seem to fit loosely, so even if you end up washing and drying them normally, they still fit well. He loves it and has gotten numerous compliments on it. I dig the design, even though I haven’t watched Power Rangers in decades. You can buy a Green Ranger costume tee for around $20 on Amazon.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Car Decal from Marvel
approximately $6.88
decal
This decal also appears to be an exclusive, as I’m not finding it anywhere online, aside from resellers. I think that it’s pretty cool. I definitely was all for this box when they announced that it would include at least two Marvel items. Other Avengers decals sell for $6.88 on Amazon.

Exclusive Team Fortress 2 4 Pin Collector’s Set
approximately $5
pins

These are another exclusive that you can’t buy anywhere else. These pins are for a free online game. I haven’t played it, but have already fallen for the pink unicorn (Balloonicorn) pin, adorable! You can play the game here FOR FREE via Steam.

Exclusive Bravest Warriors Tales from the Holo John #1 Comic by BOOM! Studios
approximately $1.99
KIMG0217
Yes, this is also an exclusive item. I don’t watch this show, but a friend of mine who does seemed to dig this comic. You can buy other Bravest Warriors comics and comic compendiums here on Amazon.

Marvel Super Heroes Ice Tray by ICUP, Inc.
$9.80
cubes
I am in love with this! Not only is it an ice cube tray with molds that include Captain America’s shield and Tony Stark’s face, but it’s also made of silicone. I plan to use it to make jello shots and candy as well as ice cubes.

Exclusive MAD Magazine Loot Crate Edition from DC Entertainment
approximately $2.66
mad
Yep, exclusive! Prior to receiving this, I hadn’t read MAD in years. However, this is totally getting me back into it. I really got a kick out of the Avengers parody comic within. A 6 issue/1 year subscription to MAD is $16 on Amazon.

Exclusive Marvel Sneaker Laces by Esquire Footwear
approximately $7
laces
These exclusive laces came in either black and white or color. They show the comic scroll that you see prior to each Marvel movie. Very fun!

Exclusive Rick and Morty Jigsaw Puzzle from Cardinal Industries, Inc.
approximately $5
puzzle
Yes, also exclusive. RS is a huge Rick and Morty fan, so he totally digs this. You can buy the first season of Rick and Morty here on Amazon.

Loot Crate May 2015 Unite Pin
approximately $1
mo
I think that these pins are cute. I do collect them, even though I don’t buy a crate every month.

Loot Crate Magazine Unite May 2015 No. 22
lc mag
I get a kick out of these “magazines”. They really are styled like one and are so much more fun to check out than the cards that other boxes tend to include. Not only do they include a rundown on the items in your box, but there are also a few related articles.

box
And lastly, the crate itself! Turned inside out, it resembles a superheroes’ locker room. I appreciate the detail that LC puts into their boxes.

Actual Price
$19.95

Approximate Retail Value
$49.33

As usual, this was another winning box content and value wise from Loot Crate.

Maleficent-good movie, great headwear

Maleficent-good movie, great headwear

Most years I write about what I’m planning to do for my birthday, what I have already done for my birthday, or why I’m (yet again) lamenting my birthday.

Now, for something completely different. My birthday just passed. It was a nice day/weekend. However, what I’m contemplating at this time are the attempts and accomplishments that have taken place since my last birthday.

Impending Graduation
I am currently starting my last semester of school. In the fall, I will finally earn my Associate’s Degree. It took one extra semester. It’s been more work than I expected. There have been doubts, but I will do this. Eventually (hopefully sooner, rather than later), I will then start on my Bachelor’s.

Life as a Disney Cast Member
The reason that I am one semester behind my peers is that I took a leave of absence last fall to participate in the Disney College Program. It was the most difficult, but also one of the most amazing times of my life. It wasn’t easy. There was a lot of hard work and restrictions. The benefits, experiences, and friendships definitely made it well worth it. WDW is now considered one of my past homes to me. I don’t know if you ever truly leave Disney behind, after working there. I’m always itching and contemplating going back in some capacity. Only time will tell.

Love
My love life has changed in leaps and bounds since this time last year. It’s basically unrecognizable. I’m happy.

Food/Exercise
I was on a huge fitness kick at this time last year. However, I love food. I’m not fond of structured exercise on the daily. I will most likely always struggle with my disordered eating, because I am human. Note: This is more difficult when you are not walking 10-12 miles on the daily, while working at the most magical place on Earth.

Comfort Zone
I can now walk out of my comfort zone. I still suffer from social anxiety/generalized anxiety and am on the spectrum. Yet, I work to overcome/work with these issues daily. Disney definitely helped with this. So, yes I’m still incredibly uncomfortable, but no I’m not going to always just fall back, stand down, or hide. I’m going to strive.

Embracing MY Interests
I am currently embracing both my nerdiness and inner princess to their full extents. It’s not that I’m not worried about others, but I matter more. I definitely regret more of the things that I haven’t done in life, than those that I have. I play Dungeons and Dragons and wear my Minnie ears, deal with it.

Body Realization
My body can handle a lot, but it doesn’t mean that I should push it so hard. I worked and played hard in Orlando and to a different extent in PA, but this isn’t something I need to be doing on the daily. I ended up in the ICU with severe dehydration in April. I do not recommend that. I’m just happy that it happened here, while I was with family.

Cosplay
I, finally (after 9 years of attending cons!), cosplayed both last year and this year, at Philly Wizard World. It takes balls, but I did it.

And now to make the next year even better.

Over the next few weeks, I will be writing extensively about my experience this past weekend at the most recent Wizard World in Philadelphia. I will be going into depth on panels, celebs, cosplayers, artists, and more. I’ve decided to do a comprehensive, yet, hopefully not too wordy, diary style overview to kick things off. Times are approximate and are in EST. New correspondent Robert Sunshine accompanied me. During this post, I will just refer to him as RS.

FRIDAY, 5/8/15
10:37PM

We got on an Amtrak near our hometown to get to Pittsburgh. The train was late, which was actually a positive as that would make our wait for our bus in Pittsburgh that much shorter. The trip was uneventful.

SATURDAY, 5/9/15
12:35AM

After walking across the street from the Amtrak station to the Greyhound and getting situated, we called our families to let the know that everything was going well. We snacked, talked, and played on our phones for under an hour. Then, it was apparent that the Greyhound line for our bus was getting long, so we headed over to wait in it until 2AM. Our bus left about 20 minutes late. As usual on the Greyhound, the ride was uncomfortable. Of course, it was faster and cheaper than the Amtrak, so I’m good.

philly arrival

This is what I look like after 10 hours of travel.

8:30AM
Our bus actually made up the time that we’d lost, so we arrived on time. We quickly walked from the Greyhound station to the convention center. On the way, we stopped at that super ghetto, yet super close McDonald’s (if you go, you know the one) for breakfast.

press band

9:37AM
By this time, we had changed into our costumes and picked up our wristbands. (I was very impressed by how quickly these were passed out.) We were ready, but volunteers were only allowing VIPS onto the showroom floor until 10AM. RS made sure that his artist portfolio for Marvel was to his liking. We observed some great cosplayers. A talent agent for an extras casting company took down our info and gave us his card.

10:05AM
We were finally allowed onto the floor. One of the first things that happened was Michael Rooker walking quickly by us. Ah, the excitement when you see celebs so quickly like that! A few years back, I had an encounter with Norman Reedus that still gives me chills.

We got photos with some cosplayers and some even requested some with us. I was just happy that people got who I was dressed as, the Suicide Squad version of Harley Quinn. RS was a jester (or harlequin, as he was fond of saying), which garnered a lot of attention. I also picked up my Stephen Amell autograph ticket. It had said that it was for Saturday when I ordered it, but I was given one for Sunday. I was actually happy about this, because Saturday was so packed full of things to do. Plus, this would mean getting to see Amell on both Saturday and Sunday. That line was pretty long, so I couldn’t stomach waiting in his photo line then as well.

This is my fourth year attending (RS’s first), in all of that time, I’ve barely bought anything aside from photos and autographs. I don’t like dragging stuff around and I’m cheap. RS is a bad influence though. In no time at all, we had bought a good number of prints from some talented artists. We played a spin the wheel game at the CW booth. RS won a The Flash hat and I won an Arrow poster.

11:30AM
We hit up Summer Glau‘s panel. Her Firefly costar Nathan Fillion was originally scheduled to attend this as well. However, he was injured and had to drop out. She seemed sweet, but the panel wasn’t as exciting as it could have been. I always enjoy when actors have other actors to volley with, not just a moderator.

12:15PM
Glau’s panel was immediately followed by Lin Shaye’s, in the same room. I do wish that I could have stayed for that and the meet and greet that followed (we had passes), but I decided to go another way.

RS is a Potterhead. James and Oliver Phelps of Harry Potter fame had been added to the con’s lineup about a week or so beforehand. So we trekked to their room. Unfortunately, it was super packed. Being that I’m not a Potterhead, needed to charge my phone and figure out directions to our hotel, and the claustrophobia of a standing room only panel getting to me, I opted to chill out in the hallway, while RS watched. He said that is was very entertaining.

 

cassidy panel

Katie Cassidy

1:30PM
Katie Cassidy‘s panel was being held directly after the Phelps’ in the same room. RS has never attended before, so he didn’t know that he could have stayed in the room and moved up to get decent seats for us. No worries, I joined her line before the Phelps’ panel let out. Her panel was very fun and informative. RS waited in her Q&A line, but never made it to the microphone. This wasn’t surprising as many fans ask multiple questions even though they are repeatedly asked to keep it to one.

Ben McKenzie (Gotham) and Penn Badgely‘s (Gossip Girl) panels conflicted with hers, making them impossible to attend.

2:15PM
At this point we had about an hour and 15 minutes until Stephen Amell’s panel. It was originally set for Sunday, which I would have much preferred. However, it was moved, I believe, due to his Wine Mixer that day.

We were exhausted from lugging our backpacks all night and day. So, we booked it to our hotel (about a half a mile away). We didn’t have time to sight see on the way but I could tell that RS was really into the city. After checking in and grabbing some complimentary snacks, we headed up to check out our room and dump everything that we wouldn’t need for the rest of the day.

amell panel

Stephen Amell

3:30PM
We got to Stephen Amell‘s panel just after it had started. So, we were way in the back. I enjoyed hearing Amell talk about the progression of Oliver Queen’s character.

4:15PM
Amell‘s general photo ops for Saturday were set for 5:40PM (WAAAYYY too late IMHO). After exiting his panel, we headed to the photo booth to get our hard photo op card. We spoke to a volunteer who told us that we should come back at 5:20 to line up for Amell.

However, due to the photo op time, the time it takes to get around the convention center, etc. we were unable to attend any of the following awesome panels that were happening from 4:30-6: DANNY TREJO, MICHAEL ROOKER, ROGER CORMAN, and BURT REYNOLDS. We only had ONE professional photo op. I think that you’d miss a lot more if you had bought some more. I really wish that these panels were more spread out. I think that Reynolds and Corman were only there for Saturday, so that’s understandable. However, I don’t see why Trejo, Rooker, and some of the earlier panels in the day, couldn’t be pushed to Sunday. Then ticket holders wouldn’t have to feel like they were missing out on so much.

We took the probably half hour that we had after getting our op in order and changing, to shop and admire more cosplayers.

5:20PM
We joined Amell‘s already long photo line. We were behind two very fun young ladies who were cosplaying Canary and Felicity Smoak (!). They made the time fly by. It actually did go pretty quickly though. I think that we had already made it near the front of his line by 5:40. I wish I had a good story about the op, but all I can say is that Amell has a nice smile. RS said something to him to the affect of, “Don’t worry, you’re almost done”. Amell seemed happy about that. I’m super suprised at the ops of him actually doing poses with attendees as these ops are always very quick. Maybe those were VIPS, or folks with much bigger balls than I.

6:40PM
After the op and checking out a few things on the floor, we decided to head back to our hotel. We stopped for a brew on the way. At this point all we were missing was the Frankie Muniz panel, which was probably good, but not a must for either of us.

I chose a hotel with a pool so we could wind down. So after eating our food that we’d gotten to go, cheese steaks of course, we went for a dip. This was during the costume contest. I’m not sure why, but I’ve never attended a costume contest at the Philly con, so I wasn’t worried about it.

9:50PM
By this time, I was tucked into bed. I know this makes me a party pooper. After all, the official after party was taking places at the Field House from 9PM-2AM. However, I was exhausted and not feeling well. I felt a bit bad because RS has never been to a WW after party. However, I’ve only been to one and the experience was a bit of a let down, so I didn’t feel that bad personally. I think I was asleep by 11PM.

Sunday, 5/10/15
8:15AM

My alarm was not set until 8:30, but I had slept my fill. We had to be checked out by 11AM. So we did the logical/fun thing and got our money’s worth by taking a dip in the pool again, after packing.

10:30AM
We were headed to the Gallery Mall and then the con. On the way, we were very touristy and took photos. Unfortunately the main store that we wanted to shop at in the mall was closed for some reason, but oh well.

elwes panel

Cary Elwes

11:35AM
RS and I went to get his Sunday wristband. Yes, he had to buy separate Saturday and Sunday passes partway through April, because the weekend ones had already sold out. After that, RS headed over to the floor to see what Marvel thought of his art. I went to get decent seats at the Cary Elwes panel. Elwes was very entertaining and looked smashing.

cassidy table

Katie Cassidy

12:45PM
We headed to the floor so I could buy some table selfies for Katie Cassidy and Cary Elwes. That didn’t take too long. I was disappointed that the day before when I’d gotten my Amell photo, a staff member had told me that these could be bought in line. So, I tried to line up in Cassidy’s line first. Luckily, a volunteer found out the truth for me, so I didn’t wait in her line without a ticket.

Cassidy‘s line was fairly long. If I’m calculating it correctly, we were probably in her line for about a half hour. It was the fastest table meet I’ve ever had. I didn’t get RS in the pic, which sucked. Although I later saw others get two attendees in their pics on Instagram, so I guess I shoulda been pushy. No candid photos were allowed in Cassidy’s line. We found this out after snapping some. This is very odd to me. In the past, if you had bought an autograph, etc. from a guest, you were allowed to snap some pics in line.

When people ask me what Cassidy was like, I say that I don’t know, because I literally said “hi”. She said nothing to me. RS randomly asked her something as we were leaving the table. She answered, but in a very uninterested way. She’s definitely as beautiful in person though.

1:30PM
At this point, I truly didn’t feel like entering Amell‘s line, but when you have pre-bought tickets you can’t just throw money away and not go get them. I think that’s the idea. We waited in Amell’s line for about 50 minutes. Candids were also not allowed in his line. Since I knew this, I didn’t attempt to take any. Although, you will see some on Instagram that others took anyway.

I had bought the autograph, because you typically get at least a minute to converse with a guest when you are at their table, unlike in a professional photo op. However, I had a bad feeling when I got up to the table. The person at his table didn’t help me pick a photo. They asked if I wanted the photo personalized and then wrote my name, my four letter, easy to spell name on a post it and attached it to the photo. The only time I’ve had that happen for me, because I have an easy name, was when I met Christian Kane back in ’05. He was too hungover too function correctly.

Amell, however, seemed to have checked out. IMHO, he was in a hurry to leave and go promote his wine. I had read that the mixer started somewhere from 4-5. I tried to engage him in conversation. I told him how we loved his show so much that even though we’d only started in a couple of months ago, that we were already all caught up. I complimented him on his panel. I honestly don’t think he said anything back. He may have glanced up at me while signing the photo. RS is ballsier than me, so he stopped to ask Amell a question as we left. Amell gave him a more satisfactory answer than Cassidy (more details to come on what this is regarding).

2:20PM
And now to the longest wait of all: the Cary Elwes line! After being in his line for about 20 minutes, I heard over the loud speaker that Matthew Mercer was having a free meet and greet in one of the rooms (It turned out to be a martial arts demonstration, very cool!) I told RS to go enjoy. RS had a theory that Elwes line was moving slowly because he was actually taking time to talk to attendees.

At about 3:15PM, I was sooo close to Elwes. His booth had fabric around all sides, absolutely negating any photos being taken by looky loos. I was the fourth person outside of it. There were maybe 9 people waiting behind me. This is when Elwes decided to take a break from signing. So I then waited a half hour for him to return. During this time, I watched Frankie Muniz, who was two tables over, interact with some young fans. He was great with them.

And…It was all worth it! He was so charming. He actually shook my hand and asked my name. I told him how I’d enjoyed his panel, and he was happy about it. Then I said, “I’ve had a crush on you since I was nine”, and he said, “Come here and give me a hug”. Aw! We hugged! Then we took a photo together. Ah, dashing!

4PM
RS and I met back up for our final hour at the con. Doors closed in an hour!!! First, I stopped at Muniz‘s table just to tell him how great he was with his fans. We had to make a mad dash to buy stuff, get a photo at the Tomorrowland booth, and check out cosplayers.

4:53PM
We arrived at my favorite place to eat in Philly, Bar Ly! It was awesome, as always. It’s still strange that this once Asian tapas eatery had to morph into a sports bar to keep business afloat, but they still serve the same great food, so not matter. After dinner, we chilled a bit and decided on our next move.

ritz east

7PM
We ended up at the Ritz East movie theater. We watched the mind blowing Ex Machina and got to chill out for a couple of hours.

9:15PM
While trekking back to the Greyhound station, we were stopped by some other attendees of the con. They were a lot of fun, so we joined them for a drink at a small bar.

10:30PM
We decided to take our leave, because it’s always recommended that you get to the Greyhound station early. We were there sometime after 11. Our bus was set to leave at 12:20. At 12:10, after already being lined up for a while, we were told that it was running 20 minutes late. It was wayyy longer than that. We didn’t leave Philly until after 1AM.

ginos

Gino’s Cafe

8:24AM
The lateness of our departure, coupled with the driver’s poor driving, and the always ominous traffic while entering Pittsburgh, means that we didn’t get there until 2 hours after we were set to. This made us an hour late for our last bus to our hometown.

So we had 3 hours to kill until another bus would be there. After chillin for a while, we went to eat at a nice little place called Gino’s Cafe. On the way there, we stopped at a cool, geeky trade in store that we vowed to return to in the future.

11:45AM
Our bus arrived 15 minutes late, arggh. We were so tired. We slept all of the way home. Unfortunately, as the Greyhound driver sucked, I did not get a nap in before returning to real life, and a meeting at 2PM, but what can you do?

The juice was worth the squeeze.~The Girl Next Door

I love Doctor Who. Yeah, that’s right, I said it. It’s a funny show for me to watch, even when I’m not really paying attention to it. I just sit back with a pen and some paper, and draw while the Doctor is throwing zany one liners and cracking jokes. It’s a TV series that has made me laugh on one episode and cry on the next. Each doctor has his own personality. Whenever he is dying or near death his body transforms into a brand new actor’s contract. With his faithful companions, he travels through time and space to different worlds, saving the day!

Season eight was beautiful. I remember sitting down, watching live, when he was revealed to take Matt Smith’s place in the blue box. I mean, yeah, when I first saw it, I was a little skeptical. I’m not the easiest when it comes to change and I kinda liked Matt Smith, but then I saw this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOPpyXYcLtE

This sold me. I wanted that as the doctor. And for the most part that is kinda what I got, an angry old man in a suit. His acting obviously has a lot more depth. I was blown away by his performance as the Doctor.

For people who don’t watch the show, the Doctor is about 2000 years old by the start of season 8. Mind you, he was already pretty old, but with his regenerations he can transform himself back to youth. So him transforming into an older looking man, a man who does not even give a tenth of a fuck, and is more openly insulting and berating…..it’s so fucking great. Peter, as the Doctor, has definitely changed a few scenarios about the show. There is no longer a romantic interest between the Doctor and his companion. The show itself is set in a much darker tone then the other seven seasons. With the upcoming 9th season, we can definitely assume that it might only get darker.

All of us know that this isn’t Peter’s first time on Doctor Who. He played in season four’s “The Fires of Pompeii” and it was mentioned in Capaldi’s first episode as the Doctor that he has seen this face before. We can only speculate some kind of bullshit about why he chose that face, and maybe even see a couple other old faces from the previous Doctors later in the series, here’s hoping.

doc who poster 8

Now, the season didn’t really have any bad episodes. Some moments were drawn out a little too long, but each episode had it’s own special tone to it. My personal favorite episode of season 8 is “Listen”. It’s an episode about creatures who evolve specifically to not be seen. The episode was creepy. In the end, it was tied up in a nice little TARDIS blue ribbon.

The show is POP culture incarnate. With so much merchandise, that if you actually watch the show back to back and love it as much as I do, you will end up going to work one day with Doctor Who socks and underwear, showing off your wibbly wobbly t-shirt you just had to have. Between the wacky quotes, heartbreaking moments, and out of this world adventures. It’s no small wonder that a show like this should peak the minds of both the young and the old.

You can buy season 8 of Doctor Who in streaming, DVD, or Blu-ray format here on Amazon.com (Note: This is an affiliate link.)

5PM Stephen Amell’s Nocking Point Wine Mixer at Union Transfer Philly-This event is not affiliated with WW. However, Amell is obviously corresponding the time frame to work with it. Ticket’s are $100. Admission includes a commemorative wine glass, tasting of wines, cocktails, beers, and appetizers, a Q&A with Stephen Amell and his partner Andrew, live music, and a silent auction. In the past, Amell has posed for photos with fans at these events. It now sounds like you would be incredibly lucky to get a selfie with him. I understand that wine mixers are fancy and typically expensive. Plus you have a celeb, but without the possibility of a photo, this is a bit high for me. I still really want to go though. You can buy a ticket here.

The full programming schedule can be found here.
