I just made the insert for one of the three bags I want to do, and vograce just shipped my charms so hopefully I can start putting it together soon.

I was stupid last week and bought the wrong type of foam for my inserts. Now it's the only thing holding me back from putting my bags together. I caught a cold too so I haven't done anything for a while.

I have 3-4 bags I'm working on. Husbando main bag (Gilgamesh from Fate) which I found some nice metallic gold for the insert. I also snagged the FGOxAvail itabag base for cheap (pictured) which will be my overflow bag for him. I'm pretty happy with it because auctions have it up for 2-5x the price. The other bag is a black Swimmer tote for Kazama from Hakuouki and a small pouchette I plan on swapping out pieces for casual use.

It's better to look at items individually. Bootleg merch uses stolen art, official or fan art, to make merch. If it's official it's usually been altered in some way too. Two different stores can get rejected straps from the same factory so multiple stores can have the same strap.

Here's a pic of official vs bootleg using the same official art.

I'm using the salus messenger bag and with all my charms on it, the foam distorts in the bag (bends/flops over). is there a way besides hot-glueing velcro to the insert and the bag? Because the salus bag has two parts: the inner bag and the outer clear bag.

im thinking i may double my insert with more foam on the back or make it bigger so it fits more snugly, but putting anything in this bag is a pain in the neck. worse scenario, I'm just gonna go with a classic tote bag because the messenger bag is driving me nuts.

Looking all these multifandom and multicharacter bags got me thinking, is there ANY way to make them appealing and/or acceptable?
Maybe the reputation behind it doesn't help because most are usually just thrown together, likely a trendhopper, and there's usually nothing special about them.

Basically, any good examples of the idea for inspiration?

I think multifandom ones are hard to make look good, because they just like you said look thrown together. You need a very clear theme to it, like Magical Girl or such.

This Magical Girl bag I think looks ok. Not really good because it still looks a bit thrown together, but it def. could work.

Multicharacter bags from the same series though are a lot easier too make look good.

all except for one of the WIP bags are for the same guy (i'm >>9704220 lol) but that one's still for his old band as a whole. i have also ended up with enough merch of his other bandmates via sets to throw together a bag just for them, which i might do? aaaand there's also a new merch set coming out where i'm so in love with his design i'm buying multiple boxes and want to do a bag solely featuring it, pic related.

A lot of those multicharacter/fandom bags aren't even fucking itabags to begin with, they're fucking con bags. An itabag requires a clear, specific theme; for multiple characters you can have a bag for a series or characters voiced by a certain seiyuu, etc. "Multifandom" (god I hate that word) bags can be centered around/for a certain genre--just 'anime' or 'video games' is too dang broad a theme.
Speaking of genre bags, I really haven't seen many good ones. Like >>9711359 said, a lot of the magical girl bags I've seen only have like 3 series, and loads of the are like 60-80% sailor moon, 10-20% "fight like a girl! uwu ~kawaii~' generic pins, and the remaining space filled with like 3-4 pieces of merch from other well-known series like madoka or CCS. They show more of a shallow love for the concept than a love of the whole genre. I personally hink you need at least four series for a good genre bag, pic related being a nice example-- I'm not very well versed in horror movies but I can pick out four there, and there are more on the back of the bag which is in a separate pic.

>> No.9712037

Crud, I meant to quote >>9711931 on the second part there.

Continuing on though, this is a good example of a multicharacter bag. It's got a clear theme--all robots--and barring tht one button in the top right which I don't recognize, nothing just has one lonely piece of merch. Mega man, Transformers, and Iron Leaguer all have clear representation, though it seems like the was a bag for the latter at first and there's not much MM on there. They're all also grouped by series and the whole bag is laid out pretty nicely, though the charms blocking a lot of the IL pics does bug me.

Unrelated, but to anyone who's doing a pokemon bag, the jp Pokemon center is doing a promo where first time buyers get free domestic shipping on orders under 5k yen. You can hit them up with a forwarding service to get this, since they will take overseas cards.

here's an interior

>> No.9712066


they're practically the same size. (would have taken a photo of one on top of the other, but it would have been moot)

If you decide to flatten out the base, the Swimmer model does not stand on its own but the knock-off can stand without support.

For the knockoff, personally, I recommend creating an insert because the faux leather is hard to pin through. The Swimmer model on the other hand is canvas, so making an insert is optional.

Oh another thing I forgot to add in regards to interior.

Personally, I prefer the interior fabric of the Swimmer bag. It has a polyester feeling, which doesn't feel like it would absorb anything if accidentally spill a little bit of water inside.

The knockoff has a weird, cotton-like feeling fabric that can easily absorb water.

The Swimmer bag uses a magnetic snap button
Knockoff uses a zipper.

I have a pink one and there is no tint at all to the window, it's completely clear.
As for pocket depth, not much at the bottom but since it has the zip around most of the window, it gains a little bit of depth. I measure 1.5cm of depth around where the zipper is and the very bottom can fit a thickness of 0.5cm, I'd say.
Since the backing of the pocket is just thin fabric it can bend and deform to fit larger/thicker items tho. You'll just have to deal with a warped working canvas.
I've put a big statue in a similar bag and it deformed enough to fit in, it just wasn't the safest for that sort of item.

Back when someone did a poll as to how many itabags people owned, she answered "49"

if I'm not mistaken, all her bags "match" the character she does. i think two mass photo posts ago, someone asked why she doesn't just... you know, make inserts and just swap inserts. She replied with "Because I don't make inserts and I like the outsides to match the characters"

I guess I can kind of understand(?)-
A.) if she purchases sets and has enough merchandise to separate characters
B.) sometimes JP sellers don't want to just sell one item and she has to buy another character along side it.

What I don't understand is why she posts her shitty bags with 2 items and calls it a WIP, or even... just post a collage instead of so many images at once. And then "commenting" on herself with "detail" photos.

My suggestion is pick something that you care about to decorate. For example, I sit at my desk all day, so I used to decorate my computer tower. I stopped because I have a new computer now and I don't want it overheating, and because itabags.

Maybe the side of a bookshelf? Or you could buy a wall scroll with the character/fandom on it and add to it and hang it up in your bedroom/office/ect?

Also a lot of people at cons have button vests. I could see one of those working if you use the itabag aesthetic.

I want to do a Michael Myers bag for my next project but I'm kind of stumped on the base bag. Pic related is my current idea but it feels a little cheesy/edge. Maybe a plain black bag would do better and make the white mask pop? I'd love some thoughts or suggestions.

>> No.9718765

Oooh what story?? I'm out of the loop, someone tell me.

>> No.9718771

I like it, but it is a little costume-y, but so are most itabags. I think it depends on where you can to wear it.

Personally, I like the idea of a full black bag to make the mask pop like you said. Maybe with a red or white trim for extra color if you want it?

Though something that might 'save' the current concept could be having the clear part be a circle instead of a heart, if that's something you're willing to change. I think the combination of blood and heart is what pushes it in the '2edgy4u' category. If it were just a circle with the white and the blood, that might make it less cheesy.

>> No.9718773

I agree the black base bag would make the merch stand out better, but I think the idea you have is also super cute! Maybe you could add some black trim or decorations on the outside of the bag so it won't be so overwhelmingly white?

Check the previous thread.

>> No.9718809

I agree with changing the shape. I'm not a big fan of the heart bags I just wanted one of the bags that actually have a large trim around the plastic for decorating purposes. I'll look for a less edgy shape alternative and think more on if I should go with a black bag.

Black trim and decorating does seem like a good idea, I'll definitely think on it more in case I go with my current idea. Thanks!

I do love the white/red part mimicking the mask, which is a really darn clever way of having the bag reflect the character, so I think the circle (or any shape other than the heart, really) might be the way to go.
