I have this bag! It's all black so I hope my photo isn't too potato, but basically it has a black cloth layer between the plastic and the 'back' of the compartment.

It also came with a white foam backing which I keep in to help keep things in place. The see through compartment is separate from the main bag.

If you go into their profile, you can see the "he/him pronouns pls". 100% tumblr fakeboi, as expected

On another note, I keep seeing so many people push the "itabag has to be super expensive" deal which I feel isn't really necessary. I mean yes, when you collect rare/sought-after merch and grail items things do get real expensive, as well as when we have to use an SS. But it's not really a requirement for an itabag imo and even the dumbasses who aren't getting the point of an itabag keep dwelling on how much money they spent on their random pin bags to justify them being an "itabag". There's been plenty of examples in these threads of bags with little merch but beautiful decoration to make up for it or cases when your husbando isn't a fan-favorite and you score a bunch of their items for dirt cheap (ex: with 35$ I got enough merch for one of my next bags and a cheap aliexpress bag to alter and use. Would hardly call it expensive, most of the merch was priced 100¥-200¥).
Just my 2cents considering I'm seeing plenty of people on the fb group on each side of the debate using the money issue. Just focus on your painful obcession with your husbandos/waifus, don't buy bootlegs and try to support the creators as possible.

They're suppose to be light up photo clips hence the clothespins. It would've been a cute idea to use if they executed it correctly, but this just looks like they're trying to jump onto the fairy lights trend and used the first thing they saw.

>>9464094
I agree with you 100% on the money thing. I think it's more fitting to say that some serious EFFORT should be put into your bag, with hunting down and spending a lot being included under that umbrella. DIY bags whose materials might not be very expensive? The effort comes from all the time you spent making those things. Basically, itabagging isn't supposed to be an easy-and-done thing in my opinion. AS long as there's some effort, the amount of money spent doesn't matter.

I will say I was talking about all this yesterday with my friend who is fluent in Japanese and who has friends in Japan (like actual Japanese not foreigners living there) and she said that linguistically there are no other terms for things like pin and button bags and they'd all just be called itabags.

Took some pics of the bag off rakuten for those interested. I took some hanging and some standing pictures. The filled ones on the right side have a couple books and a pencil case in them.
It's not so bad, really, but you can see that it wrinkles quite easily especially between badges and that annoys the shit outta me.

Agreed. I feel like Atsushi would be the most versatile with colours, because most of his merch will go with nearly any colour bag. Aside from him, most of the other characters have warm dark colour schemes (aside from some of Kunikida's stuff, Kenji's stuff and Francis' stuff).

But then again, I wear sweet lolita so I'm weak for pastels. Harsh colours are just such a problem to work with for me.

>>9465329
It's so great to know others are enthusiastic about the series and itabagging. I mean, they do pump out a hell of a lot of BSD merch... Just a shame a lot of it can be difficult to work with because of inconsistencies in colour schemes. I get Dazai's scheme is mostly dark blue/navy, but I've seen a lot of Dazai merch with brown colour scheming. Mostly older stuff, but eh.

I'm having the same issue with Chuuya, the merch is red or purple and I'm dying. I was actually about to post in the discord or the new fb group if I should just use a black bag but I'm kind of shy and he's mafia so the primary color in his outfit is black, so I'm worried about the keychains just disappearing.

(Also I've got some fake red camelias I used for his birthday and now I'm like shit, should I work those in somehow? Right now they're just sitting in my wine bottle and it's cute but I could use them for something.)

>>9465329
>Most of the keychains are hit or miss
What I wouldn't give to be into Atsushi instead desu, literally every keychain he gets is cute (also his merch is cheap, but I'm into possibly the most or second-most expensive character in the series, everything is cheap). The artists that can draw Chuuya fucking kill it but he's prickly so people apparently don't know how to make him small??? >>9465344 is a solid example, like everyone else is cute but they did something horrible to his face and made his eyes 50% bigger than everyone else's.

How long does Surugaya usually take to process orders once they've been received? I placed my first 2 orders with them a few days ago, each about ¥7800, and so far I've only gotten the email telling me that they'd inspect the items before finalising. No figures or plushies or anything, just various straps and badges.

I'm using Tenso and paid with Paypal, if it makes a difference.

They've always taken around a week for me. Once they took longer but that was when paid with paypal instead of my credit card and they eventually replied saying my payment wouldn't process (which was bs since my paypal showed the charge as pending waiting for them to grab it) and they told me the only other payment method they'd accept them was bank transfer from a Japanese bank. So now I only use credit cards to pay since they can't be xenophobic dickwads and claim a credit card payment failed.

Thanks for updating the doc after the ridiculousness!

I hope this isn't a dumb question, but I haven't had the same level of fandom over a character since Renji from Bleach, back in the day. (In my defence, I was on Japan exchange when the Seireitei arc happened and it was huge). But now I feel like a fandom grandma... would it be weird to make an itabag of such an old character? I have some old merch sitting in boxes because I didn't know what to do with it.

There are anons making bags for YuGiOh and Hetalia characters, so having a 'classic' husbando isn't too uncommon at all! You might have a harder time finding 'modern' merch for it, but that's when you get to be creative.

You're welcome, I'm glad it helped!

>would it be weird to make an itabag of such an old character?

Of course not! If you got the merch, go to fucking town anon. Older series/characters need love too!

I've seen itabags for characters from the 70s/80s. We had a Devilman bag last thread. Here's a Rose of Versailles one- >>9468346.

You will only look more dedicated by not having a FOTM husbando. We believe in you.

Th-thanks, anons! I wasn't expecting such a nice response. Guess I'll go dig out all my Renji shit then. Red base or black base, I wonder...

Oh man, this is gonna be fun.

Asking the same question as >>9467756 isn't going to get you an answer faster.

Anyways, search for 「ビリビリ 痛BAG」or 「ビリビリ 痛バッグ」.

>Renji is considered an old character now.

Well FML. Good luck anon, only really because Bleach was big before rubber straps and can badges really took off so there's not a lot of flat merch. That being said you can probably go to Suruguya and find some interesting old stuff.

I have a couple of the old temple luck charm style straps, I'm pretty sure- they're not rubber, but they're still nice.

Also, I found this sticker on taobao and it made me laugh. Pic related.
