Dream Crate: Strong Female Characters

OK so a couple of weeks ago, I found that Loot Crate was looking for people to make their own "Dream Crate." It is fair to say I freaked out at this email as I have been watching Loot Crate unboxings for a long time but have never got one of their crates so the fact that I could make my own is pretty amazing. If you don't know what Loot Crate is, it is a monthly subscription service which contains pop culture items based on a specific theme, you can find more information at lootcrate.com. The theme that I choose for my box is Strong Female Characters. So let's get started...


1. A Marvel Comics Pop Funko

Loot Crate normally have some kind of figure in their boxes so for mine I choose the 3 heroines of Spider-Gwen, Captain Marvel and She-Hulk. I thought that these would be a nice addition to the box because as all three of them can kick ass and I really enjoying reading the comics. 



2. A Star Wars based pin

So again like the Pop Funkos, loot crate normally include a pin in their boxes and I thought that it would be good to make this Star Wars themed. I did try to find a Rey pin on its own but this was as close as I came to finding one. But again Rey is just a good character.



3. This t-shirt

For this one, I just chose it because I liked the quote and also T-shirts are normally included in the Loot Crate box.


4. A Clockwork Princess Necklace

So regardless of the fact that I need a new one of these necklaces myself, I think that it is a nice necklace and Tessa is a pretty cool strong female character.


5. A Hunger Games based print

OK so this one is based on Katniss who is a pretty strong individual and this is just a really nice print and I am pretty sure that I will buy it for myself so...


6. Hermione Granger wand pen

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger Magical Wand Pen and Bookmark, Noble Collection
Again Hermione is a great character and I just liked the wand pen so it can be included in the Dream Crate. 


7. First issue of Paper Girls comic



Paper Girls #1


I really enjoy reading this comic and considering how young the girls are in the comic, they are pretty cool characters and it explores female friendship which is always a good thing. 

8. A Game of Thrones keyring

Although I am not a massive Game of Thrones as I haven't read the books or watched the TV series loads, while I was browsing Etsy, I discovered this keyring which is so nice. It is a quote by Arya Stark who I believe is a good character so...

OK, so that is my Dream Crate box. I have to admit that this box would probably not appeal to most people who buy Loot Crate but I feel as though it is a nice box and would probably be better for a YA book subscription service but I like it so...

What would you put in your Dream Crate box? Leave them in the comments below. 

See you soon,

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is...

Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female representation…
