I came home from Anime Matsuri with a load of goods! I cant believe I bought so much and all at good prices too! I saw so many cute bags there as well! I couldnt wait home to start my own! I bought this itabag a while ago but had nothing to put in it. But now i do! This is what I have so far!! Im so excited to share with all of you! What do you think?

I did a crayon drawing like this once for fun on a restaurant tablecloth, and kept it because it was sentimental to me and I liked it. I actually find this really cute, at least they have something to express themselves with since they aren't allowed to buy anything.

Happy Easter everyone!
Traveling so I'm showing off my italuggage. I think it all cost me about $10 to decorate and that was $6.50 over my budget T________T

I went to Hot Topic and dug through the pin badge bin for like 1 hour and couldn't find my ship. I don't think they're LGBT friendly because they didn't have them. I sent them an email about it. So mad! >_________<

Looking super kawaii with my luggage though so it's OK XD

>>9838037
It.... Actually is. Danganronpa v3 has a love hotel where you can literally fuck your fellow classmates in their bizarre fantasies, ranging from flugg to BDSM. This particular character or the one you play as for all of the sex scenes.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was fucked by a dragon dildo.

>>
>>9838061
He is not fucked by a dragon dildo in any of the scenes. I checked, like an idiot.
Bondage and petplay are fair game, and I guess you could theoretically work those into a bag without being explicit, but the relevant pairings are obscure in the first place? Also, even if it's SFW, the concept is creepy.
>>
>>9838078
No he isn't but it wouldn't be a surprise if he was.

Also -its an April fools bag- calm down hun and lighten up
>>
>>9838078
A few things

1. It's an April fools joke, its not meant to be thought about
2. It was done because Betty has a collection of bad dragon dildos, so the person who made the bag put a clear file in there with one as a mockery.
3. The character is just a random choice because of the image on the file blushing

I'd like to believe that too, but the FB group and the discord groups usually prove me wrong
it's crazy though, like I've seen some baggers in person and it's bizzare that some of these ugly nerd ass people get into bitchfests with other nerdy people
over a stupid bag. Don't get me wrong, I love well put together bags and how creative people get with them. And I do think some people do deserve to get shit for not following the rules/putting out shit bags,
but think about how retarded it must look to other people to argue with other people about it over and over again or actively seek out shit to complain about when it only takes a simple click to not see another person's content.
I think at some point we all have to step back and reevaluate our salty lives.

They just threw shit they already had in a bag for a quick lulz, you guys are making this way more difficult than it needed to be.

Back on topic: Anyone got layout-tips for making a bag with 3 characters? I have matching merch for all of them but I can't quite split it into 3 sections because I also have merch of them together. Balancing it all out is more difficult than I expected.
>>
It's weird how much some people care about the people who annoy them. Why not just ignore them?
>>
>>9838902
Could have sworn I had some examples of 3-character bags but I’ll have to find them later. I’d still suggest splitting them into columns or rows and having merch with all three maybe on the edges and accented with something like a bow or rosette if it’s a badge. If you have straps of all three you could also hang those from a chain that spans the window. Depending on color scheme it might work to sprinkle them amid the character-specific sections, or use them as borders.

An anon from the last thread asked about the color for this bag. It's a very nice color in my opinion and the material has a good leathery feel to it. My only disappointment is that the clear pouch fastened by velcro, not a zipper. My lighting situation is still quite bad so this is the best picture I could take.

This whole discussion is sad. Most of the Facebook comments to that bag enjoyed the joke, even Betty herself liked the bag. It didn't seem to be malicious at all and people got a nice laugh out of it, which is kind of point of April fools. Heck, I remember them discussing a joke bag to do and not once was anyone suggesting it to be spiteful. Yeah its tasteless, but there were bags with drugs and tampons in so this is the least offensive. I can't fathom why you guys have taken it so far out of context.

Hey I can confirm the person who made the bag had no spiteful intent and stuck a dildo in there based on the utapri figure injoke between friends, it was a bad dragon one for shits and giggles. Now can you stop with your illuminati theories and go back to posting bags.

Your bag looks really good so far! I agree that it does look better without the glitter because you can see the merch and background much clearer.

I was wondering where you got your one (I've only seen them on froovie and movic) and what did you order it through?

Yeah it's about 78" worth of el wire. Has three settings and was pretty flexible to use. I think this is the listing I bought it from if anyone is interested: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-5M-Flash-Flexible-Neon-LED-Light-Glow-EL-Strip-Tube-Wire-Rope-Car-Party-LigBE/122436633451

nayrt but I did a quick search and that acrylic charm is available on Amazon. I'm not sure if they're bootlegs though. I have a few from the original run which were rubber straps in jp blind boxes, pic related

Nayrt, she's called Menhera-chan, afaik she's a manga character who's basically a magical girl who turns into her magic form by slitting her wrist.

You can always make your own merch, either from screenshots, official art, or by commissioning artists. It's not any different from bags of other characters that have few to no merch, you gotta be a bit more creative.

I don't know either. So I got mine off of Amazon because they had the same art as pins in HP world but the gold clashed with my silver theme so I went with the acrylic.I figured it had been bough by the WW and then someone else had bootlegged it

I've never understood the appeal of those grab boxes at Amiami and such places which you pay X amount of dollars and get a bunch of random stuff. I've seen people post reviews of what they get and at the end they're usually, "Oh, this box wasn't what I expected" or "oh, I'm so disappointed I can't believe I got such crap" as if that would be a total surprise with that type of order.
>>
>>9842727
Is right >>9842748 ! Menhhera-chan is a wrist cutting warrior, as well as the other two in the heart badge. The bunny is her sidekick with pill capsule ears who smokes and drinks
>>9842752
I love that idea!

>>9842782
Was it worth the shipping cost?

>>9843145
Haven't a clue yet. I'm waiting on FJ's warehouse team to send me an email back telling me if there's a brick or two in there. By all accounts just looking at it I wouldn't think it was more than 4kg at the most.

Hoping the weight is from magazines or something and I can get FJ to just toss them in the bin.
>>
>>9842952
I have a particular fondness for the Urban Mines style of grab bag where you get a single picture of the pile and have to decide whether you think it's worth bidding on to find out what else is in there. I took the plunge once and ended up with some rare Miku items and a bunch of keychains and pins I'd had my eye on, none of which had been visible!

Completely blind grab bags are a little less appealing, but hey, some people like gambling. I did one of the amiami ones once just to see what I ended up with, but I wouldn't do it again. I guess there are people who stalk recent reviews to get an idea of what stuff amiami's trying to get rid of and then order if they see things they like, though?

I spent a bunch of money on Kira Yoshikage merch planning to make an itabag but I met a KY cosplayer that I ended up getting my heart broken by and now when I look at the merch it just feelsbadman. Is it worth it to just sell the merch off? (one by one or in a lot?) Should I just get the fuck over it and keep on with the bag?
>>
>>9843491
Give it some time, anon. How long has it been? It took me about a year to get over feeling bad looking at stuff from a fandom I used to be heavily into and had a really bad break from. Maybe work on other bags or a different hobby in the meantime?

If you've ever been through a bad break up, I'm sure there were certain songs you couldn't listen to or places you didn't enjoy going to after that.

>>9843494
About 6 months. I mean it's still one of my favorite characters but I also feel silly being bummed out by anime merch. I guess I was kinda also just wondering if it's worth it to sell off the merch? If it is, I'd probably just do that and buy stuff for a different character but if it isn't I'll probably just keep it and force myself to get over it.
>>
>>9843527
I think Kira's popular enough that you could sell it? But if he's still a favorite then I'd give it another six months or so and see if you feel better about making a bag. p4's already been animated so you're not racing against the clock to try to take advantage of a new wave of fans or anything. There will still be people around who want to buy it then if there's any now.
>>
>>9843527
Anon, if you decide to sell your merch I'd be interested in buying it as I'm working on a bag for him as well.

>>9843291
The grab bags with at least a preview of the massive pile is ok if I were to go for one of them, kind of like photos on blind boxes. I'd like to have some kind of idea what I'd get.

That is true that checking out recent reviews for Amiami's grab bags would give a good idea what they're offloading. Handy for those people who do buy the boxes.
>>
>>9843491
I mean, one bad experience shouldn't ruin your enjoyment of a character, especially some salty cosplayer, but you do you anon.

And uh....sell me your merch if you decide not to go thru with the bag, I am also gathering shit for a Kira bag.

The bag isn't big—it's advertised as A4-sized and a A4 clearfile will fit with a little wiggle room. The window is also pretty flat so no plushes or thicker merch/inserts.
>>
>>9843503
Actually happened to me. I loved the character for years and years. No amount of fandom bullshit or shipping her with the girl I hate could stop me. Pretty obscure series, cute outfit with lots of layers.

Then I cosplayed her at a con, spending months and hundreds on nice fabric. someone threw their hot drink at me (it burned my arm) then spat in my face. Calling me a whore for liking them and telling me to kill myself if I don't get murdered first.

I've never been able to look at the character since, and I haven't made a costume since either. I mean I did spend 6 hours in A&E getting my burn treated and it's scarred.

So you can say "truly dedicated" but fuck man what does that even mean

So sorry this happened to you. I like Yuuko and xxxHolic has some of my favorite OP and ED songs.

I feel your pain. In school I took woodshop and I hated it. I wasn't any good at making crafts plus worrying about slipping up and getting nixed by the power tools like a bandsaw which I didn't know how to use didn't help. One day while putting away the chisels, an idiot wasn't holding his properly and cut my shoulder. I have a nasty scar and I resent him so much for it even now years later. I've wished him death and rabies many times as this scar makes me very self-conscious when I buy clothes or if my sleeve hikes up. Makeup can only cover the ugly color. God knows how I'll ever get over it once the getting naked with a guy factor comes in.

Would it be possible to modify a bag so that it could have a window? Specifically, a pleather bag. Or is this just guaranteed to look horrible?
>>
>>9844664
That depends on a lot of things anon.
What kind of bag?
Are you good with sewing?
It's possible. But how good it looks will depend on your bag and your skill.

Post pics of the bag you want to use and the window shape if you want more concrete advice.

Sorry about that!
I'm thinking of pic related. I'd say my sewing skills are about average.
I was thinking of the window being the either the entire front of the bag or just big enough to leave a small border of the pleather to surround it.
>>
>>9844794
Which character do u wanna use that bag for?
>>
>>9844956
Doppio from jjba!
>>
>>9844794
I think a small border of pleather will be easier to do than taking out the whole front of the bag. It's hard to tell how the phone bit sits on it too. Cba to check wego (looks like a wego photo) for the other pics of the bag. I think as long as you know how to put windows in bags and have a strong enough needle it should work out fine?

Good luck anon! If you go through with it, post pics (if you're okay with it).

Man you weren't kidding this bag is cringe for the wrong reasons. It's a shame because it looks like you care but your bag is just shit. You've got a pink bag, no insert, you didn't even fill the window and still put stuff on the outside. Did you ever

hey guys!

so update with my gul'dan bag; the bag's arrived, and i've got all the commissions for the badge designs recieved finally! (it'll mostly be repeated-badge patterned for now until i commission more)
there's this one i really super like though that i definitely want to have as a centrepiece somehow; would i be better printing it on super thick paper/laminating/attaching with a flair/border with ribbon or just ordering a huge badge and maybe making a rosette?
i don't really think a rosette would suit him well, he's too, well. gross. but idk how well a laminated print would hold.
thanks in advance!

tl;dr ecoplasma's art (pic related top right) is fucking beautiful and i want to feature it But How?

I think like a 3" badge + rosette would look the nicest, but people have used shikishi boards in bags so no reason you can't print him out super big instead if you want! If you do decide to go that route, I'd recommend a matte lamination, the shiny laminate usually looks terrible. Mount it on something sturdy so he doesn't get bent, and you can always use washi tape around the edges to make it look extra nice.

thanks for the advice! i think i'll try a rosette/printout and just see which one works best with the theme/layout, i guess. the shikishi board seems like a great idea though, thank you! i'll see if i can find a good size near me.

I know absolutely nothing about this character, but would the wood/moss/pebble stuff that in typically in the floral section in craft stores work at all? You'd have to be creative to make a "frame" out of it though

I never expected to see a Hans bag! I really love all your little decorations, and I think it's super cute how you put the buttons along the lines of the scalloping on the top. This is really inspirational, anon!!

Anybody have tips on how to remove melted tape glue/tape from the vinyl? I went to a con a few months ago and I guess holding the bag close to my body made all the glue dots melt right off.
