Hat Review: Royal Fairie Wings

So, as you all know, ROBLOX recently had a one-day (or night, rather) sale which they called the "Midsummer Night's Sale." Now, overall, the sale wasn't as fantastic as many had expected. Indeed, I had stayed up for an extra two hours only to find that my waiting was to be rewarded with an owl rather than the treasured Midnight Blue Sparkle Time Fedora. However, that said, there were a handful of rather nice, smaller limiteds, the last being the item we'll be reviewing today: the Royal Blue Faerie Wings.

Mesh: The Royal Blue Fairie wings have the same mesh as the Faerie Wings,which they were modeled after, so there's not much to comment on there. The design has been kept nice, clean, and simple, so I'll give it a 7/10.

Appearance: These wings sit nicely on the character, and of course, match with any of the rest of the Midsummer's Night Sale items, such as the Midnight Blue Sparkle Time Fedora, or the Midnight Blue Shaggy. I find the shading of the wings to be rather pleasant, but there's nothing about the hat that quite makes it stand out. In comparison to the original Faerie Wings, I've noticed that these are a tad shinier, as well as more detailed. The Royal Faerie Wings have sections to them as opposed to the Faerie Wings. I suppose that's a nice little upgrade. 8/10.

Pricing: The Royal Blue Faerie Wings hit the Catalog at a price of 1,000 ROBUX carrying 1,000 in stock and sold out a few minutes after their release. While it did start off at a price of roughly 3,000 ROBUX, time has taken its toll on the item, and as the hype wore down, so did the price. They now sell at a price of 1,400-1,500 ROBUX, which, with the tax, allows buyers to either simply make back what they payed or turn a small 50 ROBUX profit. Overall, they're not the best item to invest in currently. 6/10.

Overall: 7/10.
