What is this black magic that has allowed me time to blog?!
Nothing actually, I decided to stop attending Korean class for a couple of weeks to get things in order. The real miracle of today is that I’ve managed to wrap up everything I need to do just when my first order from BlackMilk arrived!
For those who don’t know, BlackMilk is an Australian brand that specialises in nylon. They recently started collaborating with large franchises (i.e Star Wars, Harry Potter) to start selling pieces like the one I’ve just purchased. They ship internationally and they are great. The only thing I have to grumble about would be the products being overpriced a lot of the time. Close to a hundred bucks for a pair of tights is not a good deal. :(
So this Gryffindor Shooter is a part of their Hogwarts collection. There are so many different pieces I wanted to purchase from their collection but I am strapped for cash and decided on this one piece. The top/shirt-dress is basically a jersey type of top. It has little holes in them, just like any sport jersey would, so it would probably be wise to wear a black singlet underneath.
The front features, other than Gryffindor, Seeker and the No.7, the emblem of Gryffindor and also the quidditch emblem. The No.7 is also featured on the back and Potter is featured as the “player’s name”. This was one of the deciding factors for me. I initially really wanted the Slytherin shooter (even if I’m more of a Gryffindor person), but the back of that shooter was plastered with “Malfoy”. I love Malfoy, but just not that much. But hey, if I have some extra moolah some time I will probably buy it!
So this was my very first time ordering from BlackMilk and they do take on this quirky and easy-going personality. Along with your garment you get BlackMilk’s stickers, henna tat and business cards and also care “commandments” which were super cute to read. Branding, a job well done.
Here’s me and the shooter. My face is terrible in these because…well I pretty much threw the shirt on without thinking about brushing my hair and now I’m questioning as to why I’m even posting these pictures up. Oh well. Haha. And FYI, I am actually wearing shorts underneath the top, so you can see how long it is that it makes me seem rather pantless. I suppose that’s the whole point. If I were to go out, I would probably wear tights (if you’ve seen the collection, I really wanted the Deathly Hallow tights…) or a pair of shorts (that won’t ~disappear).
Overall I would say I’m very happy with my order. It was expressed shipped to me, so I hardly waited. Everything is dandy, except I do wish the price wasn’t as fatal.
That’s all from me. Fingers crossed that this black magic continues to abracdabra on~
