My excitement could not be contained when I learned that the December Fandom of the Month Club theme was going to be Beauty and the Beast!
Beauty and the Beast is one of my all-time favorite Disney classic films so I was over the moon to find out that it was going to be a theme for Fandom of the Month Club!
The art print followed the similar style of the stained glass intro in the animated film to bring the classic feel to life, while the magnet this month featured the Bimbettes, and also paid homage to the box creator Erin and her sisters Missy and Mandy (as they are all blonde triplets). Going for the Bimbettes was a great choice and wasn’t something expected. I was really happy with the choice to do this!
The bag design featured Lumiere and Cogsworth in the traditional Half Blood Prints style (without eyes/facial features) and the words Be Our Guest in simple gold lettering. Knowing that FotM is switching to a different bag design next month, I would have loved to see how this would have turned out on a zippered pouch!
The first piece of jewelry this month was a silver toned book ring. I couldn’t have asked for a better first piece. I actually went on my FotM BST page on Facebook and snatched up two backups for it in case I break it!
The next item was gold toned and featured the different characters silhouettes on a delicate chain bracelet. Plumette, Lumiere, Cogsworth, Wardrobe, Chip and Mrs. Potts all got to be represented on this absolutely beautiful piece.
The earrings were pretty simple but with the rest of the box being so detailed, I feel it was necessary to go simple, featuring red rose studs. These will definitely be getting plenty of use!
Finally, the necklace which is a pocket watch style in burnished gold tone, features the words “Tale as Old as Time” when it’s closed. It also includes a mirror charm as well as a blue and gold tone bead dangling to represent Belle’s Dress and the Beast’s suit.
This box could NOT have been any better and I’m so so pleased with the included pieces. I cannot wait to wear them to see the live-action Beauty and the Beast coming out in March!
