Stocking itabag anon from last thread here. I decided in the end to just use the base I had commissioned, and be more careful about my next ita bag. I will try to make it work. I was wanting to ask about how to get older merchandise. I am trying to find a few specific things of her, but most of them are harder to find. Any advice? And would it be wierd to try to incorporate merchandise of her cat too, since she is often seen carrying it? I know the main focus is Stocking, but maybe a few smaller things with the cat?

It’s kind of like a train wreck you can’t look away from, or a mess that isn’t yours, isn’t your responsibility to clean, but damn if you don’t feel the urge to tidy up. Problem is as soon as you try to give critique or point out how to better a bag, you’re shut down full stop, called elitist, a bully, or ruining the bagger’s delicate mood. The frustration with that is a lot of what brings people to rag on the group as a whole, and after several failed attempts to help someone fix their layout you just get so jaded and don’t bother anymore. Bag quality lowers every new day and you end up with shit like >>9959621 or “everything I like” bags that get 100 more likes and more attention than those with time, effort, and real love put in (if the series isn’t fotm). In a hobby like this you don’t have a constant stream of new stuff coming out (everyone has their own character or series they’re bagging for so it’s not like we all get the same hype over new merch). The FB group is a constant stream of frustration and the occasional drama. It’s part of the entertainment for this hobby in a way.

Like it or not FB is the biggest social media for bags and the best way to get feedback/opinions on them. The fact that there was an attempt to make a second group but it's dead is because the original is so much larger and few people outside of cgl knew of it or had a reason to switch.

To be honest I've grown disillusioned with the hobby when a bag I spent $300 on gets identical remarks to a bag filled with misc buttons and two Funko pop keychains. It's really disheartening to want to share something you worked hard on with the biggest western itabag group on the internet only to get that sort of response.

inb4 post here or don't post at all

We all know what happens if gulls post their own bags here and a big draw of making bags is displaying them for others of the same fandom/hobby.

If you're in this hobby because you want attention, you should leave. I make my bags for my own enjoyment because I love the fandoms I bag for. I could get 5 likes or 500 likes and I'll still love my bags the same. Your lust for attention is sad and I'm sorry I can't relate to it.

we keep having this convo lately i feel like lol. yeah i don't need FB likes to sustain my interest or love my bags, all of them are for the same character that i'm probably going to love til i die given my track record, i'm fine. but it would still be nice to get some recognition for the effort i put in even if people don't know who the fuck he is, or better yet, crit and discussion on the universal parts (layout, design choices, etc.). really what i want is more discussion in general. not slapfights over irrelevant things like shitabags and the FB mods and discord names, but actual fucking itabagging.

theoretically FB would be a great platform for all of this if people used it to discuss things besides basic dumb shit like Are inserts good? Show me your Voltron bag with an insert! lmao. but they do not. this is also why i've only posted once; like, i'm not about to switch what i'm bagging to chase likes because that's not my motivation because i'm not stupid. it still sucks when you barely scrape together more likes than an ugly fotm bag in a collapsing to alice bootleg though, man.

and it's frustrating that that's all the group is going to be: a like vehicle for people who are just in it while it's popular and don't care too much about the craft. there are definitely people putting out good shit in there still but they're far from the majority.

>inb4 use the new group
actually thinking about this, do the current mods plan on implementing any of the discussion ideas that were brought up before? we all keep talking about ways to revive it but it doesn't seem like any of us (myself included) want to put in the work when there are other established venues for us """"elitists"""" that all have... a very large shared audience between them.

i do discuss them here but if different environments didn't have different advantages it wouldn't matter in the first place. the only thing i've ever posted on FB was a bday shrine anyway, all my WIPs and general bag posts go here or the discord lol

as for your question, i think they're postable when you have a majority of your merch and an idea of what you want for the rest, along with your base bag. basically just enough a setup where you can actually tell what the bagger is going for. i will even put my money where my mouth is on both topics here and share one of mine.

i plan on getting rosettes in black + image color for the buttons and likely ribbon or lace around the postcard as well, and have decoration for the top planned based off of something on the mc's outfit so it looks less empty. dunno if i will for the bromides, i think i'll have to see when the rest is there. i don't think theres much else to talk about from there due to the lack of merch limiting my options (hence why i havent posted it); unfortunately this is a side group so i'm working with about all there is here. it's part of why i wanted the utapri base though, i like them most when you can actually see the pattern on them.

i stand by my assessment of the FB group that its not really the place for discussion it could be, and i wish there was more focus on promoting likes for craft over series recognition. it is what it is. i mostly just skim it during downtime at work these days desu because i know i'm not going to get what i want out of it beyond that.

I did read your whole reply. The way you worded it made it look like you were saying they ONLY got likes because they were of popular series. Which, clearly, is not the case.

>the popular series will always get more attention
Literally can be applied to anything. Water is wet. What is your point with bringing this up?

My whole point here is to show that the idea of "good bags get ignored" is horse shit. They don't, that's just as fact. Is every "good" bag going to get over 100 likes? No, probably not, but imo 60-80 likes is still good, and I see that on bags that aren't as popular as LL or BNHA.

I just don't understand what you mean by "high level discussion". This is a pretty simple hobby, there's not much to really figure out with it. Buy merch, put in bag in an appealing way, done. A lot of collection-focused hobbies are the same way.

I feel that the main reason you're feeling unsatisfied is because you're looking for things that this hobby never really set out to fulfill. Yeah there are crafty elements to it, but at the end of the day, it's about fandom and merch buying and slapping that into a purse. It aint that deep, dog.

>ironically this is probably the closest thing to what i wanted i couldve gotten from arguing at midnight on 4ch, so at least there's that.

maybe not the best wording. by high level i mean shit that isn't "do you like totes or backpacks more xD". you're right, it's not THAT deep, but there's still things to talk about in terms of design, trend, the change in standards over time... i could think of other stuff but it's kind of pointless. is it enough to sustain daily discussion? no, not at all. weekly? eh... probably pushing it, though the ibc discord's weekly questions aren't the worst way of doing this. but there's definitely room for more than we have now.

i also don't see what's wrong with FB between 1. having topics with threaded replies and 2. being a platform most of us already use. like, can you imagine the utter uselessness and inactivity of a bagging subreddit?

I managed to find another lot for the item and while it was a bit more expensive the seller didn't ask me to add 300usd worth of badges to my order christ. What's the most you anons have ever spent for a 'small' item? I remember someone posting about a can badge auction that had 100k yen as its winning bid.

I spent $65 to get this tiny charm off Yahoo Japan Auctions. Other P5 characters were like 500¥ but of course the main character was 2500¥. And then fees. And more fees. He’s like an inch tall though, so I certainly spent more than I wanted. Looks good in my bag though!

But why would you advertise something like that in a discord filled with minors? That's the big issue here, a lot of IBC are under 18 (that's why their bags suck)

It's really sad but like... There are people who don't draw that line and actually get off on stuff on like this. It's not something you want to be encouraging younger fans to get into or think is acceptable. There's not exactly a debate to be had about it, it's gross and it leads people down that path. There was a pretty over whelming sense of "yikes" and objections before they posted the second set of badges.

I dunno man. I kind of agree that you shouldn't be posting this shit in a discord that allows kids. They're easily influenced enough as it is.

Most I spent for a small item was roughly $50 but it was for a niche fandom and merch rarely goes above that even for popular characters. But going along with your “buy x for y” story, I had an incident trying for a plush and the seller wanted me to buy several other items on top of it. They had other stuff I wanted so I just went along with it. Then they said I needed to get 5 items of one listing, 2 of another, 3 stones of sapphire, and a dead man’s toe and it just kept going and I gave up. Eventually found the plush again for a bit more but hey I didn’t have to go on a literal side quest to get it.

If you have a lot of plushes or stands I highly recommend investing in acrylic risers. You'll have way more flexibility with your layout.

Some of these are more general room decor but maybe helpful anyway.

I'm so tempted to make one of those biggass heads sometime just to hang in my room. I love whenever any LDH groups' itabags pop up in these threads.

On another note, I was weak, Hypmic anons. I gave in and preordered the omanjuu even tho I said I wouldn't. Eyeing other items too but I'm trying my best to be very moderate and start out with just a tiny shrine. How are you holding up?

I ended up giving in pretty quick and put in several pre- and secondhand orders and bought the CDs. I haven’t had this much fun in a while so I’m hoping the hype lasts. It’s hard going through sales lists and not buying everything up, though. On one hand the cheaper prices and merch itself might not last long, and on the other I might lose interest (and on a third merch might end up in big auction lots so could be cheaper to wait). Wish I got into it earlier. Was surprised to find out the first CDs came out at the end of last year.

I've been lurking this threads on and off for like a year, and decided to dip my toes in with a cheap Amazon knock off and picked my favorite easily-obtainable character as a theme.

WHY is it so HARD? I feel like I can't figure out a placement for the few things I do have, and I'm having a hard time finding merch and I feel so retarded about it. Normies think it's really cute, but I'm embarrassed to take it any con or post it. Please gulls, I need direction.

Your backing makes me think of a starry sky, so I think starburst-shaped backings around the center and corner buttons would be cool! I'd also do something about the charms, because with his black shirt they kind of get lost.

>>9960255
Something I think might be neat is using a section of backing/mounting fabric to highlight the top acrylics? I think it's going to turn out nice when it's done, you're definitely making the most of all the merch.

Oh wow! Please do show off your haul when you get it! I'm still fighting off buying much more since I got limited spending money (I'm worried about buying full boxes and then not selling off the ones I'm not keeping, can't really afford to keep every chara as much as I love them) atm and customs always dick me hard but I too am afraid of not taking advantage of prices while they are cheap (especially since I fell hard for Matenrou and they're the most popular crew. Secondhand will be a bitch later on). Hypmic is thriving atm so hopefully merch not lasting won't be an issue I think. And I wish I had gotten into it sooner too, I'm pretty hooked. But hey, we are not too late for the party, there's so much to come.

I’ll definitely share though my orders so far are still humble. I’m trying not to spend too much for financial reasons and also saving money for a trip to Japan in a couple months. Hoping to grab more merch while I’m there. I already have a small bag that would work well for Jakurai/Matenrou though it’s funny I’m not buying all this merch with the intent to bag necessarily, I just really want it.

That makes sense and you'll most likely find plenty of stuff to buy while there, yes! Would you mind reporting on your Hypmic findings after your trip? Not just merch but any pop up cafes/shops/collabs/etc you come across, it seems so popular atm that I feel it's a great time for fans in Japan.
That's a nice coincidence you already have one that could work for them haha. I love Jakurai and Matenrou in general, if you do put together the bag, I'd love to see it!

thank you! possibly backing the acrylics is a good idea... it's not quite as dire as the picture looks, since the print on them is actually outlined in purple, but i feel like they don't really stand out as much despite that. i'll fuss with it once i get around to properly mounting everything else.

What I assumed would be easy merch is just cringy shit from Hot Topic, and the only site I have any luck with is AliExpress. I'm just really baffled that all of what I find is really ugly or a mini-fig that I'm not sure could be used in a bag, I didn't make that clear enough. My issue is more that I'm getting into this and I hate almost everything available for my character. It's almost worth switching to a different bag with a more directly cute character, even if it is expensive.

In that line, I have a set of cards like pic related. Would a basic 'card holder' work to attach to a bag or is it totally not worth it?
