Geeky T-shirt Time!

Hey there!

So I’ve noticed that since I have started this blog, I haven’t actually posted anything that was geeky. Mainly because I wasn’t sure what kind of geeky thing I wanted to talk about first since there are so many things from my vinyl figures to books etc.(Sorry about that & sorry for those that are waiting for another skincare product review)

But anyways I thought I’d write a quick small post about Geeky T-Shirts. For those that like geeky stuff, there are so many shirts to buy especially if you know where to look. Personally I prefer t-shirts that are different and have unique designs, these are normally created by many different artists. These  are sometimes only available as a 24 hour shirt sale on such websites like teefury, qwertee, shirtpunch etc or can be purchased for much more money on tshirt websites. These are only a couple of websites that I purchased from, but there are so many to choose from.

Personally I prefer to purchase from Qwertee since I don’t have to worry about UK custom fees, since Qwertee is a company that is based in Ireland. So I don’t have to worry about making sure I’m within the customs tax’s limits which is £15 for anything stated as merchandise. It also means that delivery doesn’t take that long for items to arrive and I don’t have to worry about if the shirt will actually arrive. I have purchased from them many times and have never had a problem yet. (fingers crossed).

Qwertee is a company that sells limited edition t-shirts, sweaters, hoodies from many artists and features designs from many themes. Shirts range from £8-12 depending on what type you purchase.

  • If you purchase a 24 hour limited shirt, then it’ll be £8 + shipping costs, but fear not if you missed them like i do on occasion.
  • £10 shirts + shipping costs are normally the previous days shirts offer, so try and get it when it’s the first time).
  • The £12 shirts + shipping are the ones that are in their shop most of the time and  from time to time, they do go into the 24hour shirt sale time for a cheaper price.

These come in a large variety of sizes and you can even choose to have the design on a hoodie for £24 + shipping or a sweater for £15 + shipping.

But the best thing to look about for is their random shirt sale, where for a cheaper price of (£6) you can purchase a random shirts. I love doing that, and so far I have received some pretty good shirts with great designs. This is one of the shirts that I got as a gift from my sister, which you can still currently purchase from their website for £12. AHHH! I HAVE AN ALIEN INSIDE OF ME!DSCN472620160211_210917For those that might not be familiar with the design, the alien is from the film ‘Alien’ but can’t currently remember the artist that designed this (anyone know please let me know). And the best part of this shirt is, it GLOWS IN THE DARK.  (Sorry, couldn’t take a photo of it in the dark )

Anyways hope you enjoyed reading about where I get my Geeky Shirts. Let me know, if you like geeky shirts and where do you purchase them from? Want to see more of my geeky shirts, then let me know. 🙂

Kuroshitsuji ( Black Butler ) Ichiban Kuji Merchandise Haul

Hi, there sorry that it’s been a while since I’ve posted something. You might have seen it on my Instagram (@sweetgeeklife) that i managed to purchase loads of Ichiban Kuji prizes for the Black Butler anime. And I thought I’d share them with people that might be interested in Black Butler merchandise. These merchandise was for the season called Black Butler: Book of Circus

Encase you’re wondering what is Kuroshitsuji is. It’s a Japanese anime that is set in the Victorian times in England. Following the character Ciel who made a deal with a demon called Sebastian to get revenge on the people who killed his parents. That’s just roughly part of the story line and I won’t go into much detail of the story line since if your properly reading this, then you would know about the anime/manga series. This is one of my favourite anime/manga series. So whenever I get the chance to buy some of their merchandise I always have to pick some stuff up. So look out for more future posts on my Kuroshitsuji merchandise like art books, rubber straps etc.

But anyways back to what I recently purchased. These were bought from an EBay seller that lives in Japan so I know that the products are the Official Merchandise. (I don’t mind bootleg items since considering that some legitimate anime products can be pricey especially items that are only won in Japanese Lottery Prizes called Ichiban kuji.) Luckily I was browsing on ebay at the right time, since she was having a sale on her items and had combined it all together as a set. So I had the opportunity to purchase many things I wanted for a cheap price if no one else was going to bid against me. And considering the starting price was already at £12, I wasn’t going to bid anymore if someone was going to go against me. That’s because the Customs tax limit is £15 for anything that isn’t stated as gifts. Since I hate having to pay customs for my items and the process takes a bit longer for me to receive items. In her description of the item, she did state that items weren’t going to be stated as gifts on the parcel but she did in the end. Think this was why it put people off from bidding on the item. So I won the bid! YAY! I got it for the total of roughly £19, which was a steal considering that nearly all the items were items that could only be won in the lottery prizes. And many of the items are quite expensive when purchasing from UK sellers.

So what did I win?

  • 3 towels
  • 4 pocket mirrors (don’t you just look the patterns on the mirrors? it’s great for the whole circus theme)
  • 2 acrylic charmsdscn5132
  • Stationary setdscn5158
  • Envelope set dscn5151
  • 2 post it note sets

Hope you enjoyed reading about my Kuroshitsuji Merchandise!
