My main bag was really popular on twitter a few years ago because itabagging was still fairly new and it was for a rarer character. Someone posted it on /vg/ with the intention of making fun of it but other anons thought it was pretty cool.

>> No.10166415

Mine get posted every once in a while. They're not fantastic but they've got some "gimics" (nonstandard items, lights, etc) so they get posted when people ask for recs of those specific things. I don't mind being a jumping off point as inspo for more skilled baggers, though.

>> No.10166989

Probably a stupid question, but is it faux pas/cringe to use your own fanart in your own bag? Is it cringier if it's extensively used vs just a single item in the bag?

I'd much rather use official merch but there's so little of it it pains me. Looked for fan merch too but even that is minimal (online that is. Hoping I'll find some things in person at a con soon...but I was hoping to be able to bring a semi-complete bag to the con rather than be assembling one on site.)

>> No.10167111

That might be better because you'll have a consistent style.
Other than that, I don't think using *your own art* is that big of a deal, it's just in the same boat as using fanart in general (ie. whenever there's little/no official merch available).

>> No.10171018

I order BDs through Amazon JP. With the set I bought the way that it worked was that every BD came with a card with a code and website printed on it. Once you collect all the cards you would then have to input the codes + your address (your forwarders address since they don't ship overseas) on the website listed, and they'll ship out the bonus then.

It could be different in another shop, hell it might even vary per label. Your best bet is to order all BDs with the same account + forwarder address like the other anon suggested.

I agree. I used to have a full acrylic bag but the constant clacking made me too paranoid which is why I hang them on my pinboard instead. I do have a fanned out row of acrylics on the top half of my utapri bag, but I wouldn't call it a true grapevine as they're still a little spaced out.

My bags don't have grapevined acrylics but I do use a lot of them (image is a selfpost) so I can maybe give some advice.

Your best bet if you're truly committed to them overlapping is to seal/protect them somehow, otherwise the stickers will scratch over time. However, the problem acrylics generally have in itabags is that they fade into the background, so I think grapevining them will just muddy the actual print and make them unattractive. I've had the most luck when I arrange them such that they're surrounded by "strong" merch (rubber straps, buttons, things with colors that stand out) and having them flat against the bag so you have the best chance of seeing the whole print. Another thing that works is having something really dramatic and eye-catching for the background; I'm using some trimmed down white faux fur as backing in another WIP bag. If your heart is truly set on grapevining then I'd depend on a background to make it stand out.

What acrylic specifically are you using?

My newest hobby has basically become finding the shittiest shitabags I possibly can.
I don't go to conventions and don't really know what this has to do with itabags, I think if you want to display your badges/lanyards you should just get a corkboard or something. I'd say the idea would only really work as an itabag if it was all of the same mascot from the same convention honestly.

I think you could probably bring this up in a con general honestly with better help and more contribution to the thread in question, but I'm happy that you liked my corkboard idea!

I'd like to turn some tote bags into full-on itabags with an insert, does something like a clear cover for this kind of purpose (see my shitty drawing) even exist? I tried looking up all sorts of "itabag cover"-related terms but only found ones that you're supposed to put on top of a bag to protect it from rain, I want one that's closed at the bottom so it not only protects my merch but also enables me to use an insert instead of pinning the merch directly to my bag. Sorry for the retarded question but I've been browsing Yahoo Auctions for like three hours and I'm slowly going insane because surely this must exist, I just can't figure out the keyword for it.

I wouldn't mind as much if they didn't call them itabags.
The only time I've ever seen it done decently is that bag that was entirely reaper funko pops since it was basically a form of grape vineing.
I'm gonna assume it came with some of the charms they got on etsy and they thought it was cute so they stuck it on the bag.

These Mettaton bags are god tier, I'd say be creative and really look into the detail of the characters! The top bag in particular did a really cute trick by using the 'ratings' segment of the game on the bag. As for doing it with a symmetrical layout I think buying dupes of everything as you're doing is already the way to go.

Fanmerch bags can look great, the problem is that people see fanmerch as an excuse to throw a bunch of random shit together with no thought put into it.

The first one is by Mir Mochi, but it's for Tamagotchi and the stars/border wouldn't work for what I'm doing. The second is perfect, but idk how I feel about painting a Miju Miju bag, especially at that price. A nice alternative would be appreciated.

Interesting question. Rather than design a new bag, I would rather make changes to already existing ones? Like having the the original utapri bag more sturdier, and have a secure way to close it.

I liked the WEGO totes a lot, but fuck I hate that the handles are non-removable. I only use it as a shoulder bag with the strap they included, and the handles often obscure the window. So if you make one, have it be like these, without the handles. I'd buy two or three of them.

Thanks for the input anons, you give me something to think about. I've made bags before with proper lining, interfacing, and sturdy straps, so I find the clear window aspect to be rather enticing to try incorporating into a bag design.

I know I want to make a new insert that's bigger than the base bags default since theres a decent amount of space that could be filled, but i cant decide on a fabric color / print for it. should i just stick to plain white since the merch colors are a bit all over?
i'd also appreciate any concrit on the layout, if it helps i also have 3 more of the can badges on the bottom corners!

I would make sure all the matching buttons are aligned the same angle. (Like tilt wise? If that makes sense.)

I think it might look better if you shifted the red 6x dupes to the bottom and moved everything else up a row so the white 6x dupes are where the reds used to be. Essentially, framing the rest of your merch with the dupes. As for insert colour, does he have an image colour? Just based on your merch colours, I'd go for a pale pink/peach insert.

That makes sense, i feel stupid for not thinking of it before lol

I was considering doing a pale green or white w/ green polka dots since its his favorite color, but pale pink or blue does seem like a better idea especially since im considering adding more merch of his mascot. thank you!!

for the bags I regularly use (not at cons) I prefer backpacks. I have two of the wego backpacks with the heart cut outs I use regularly because its a nice size but I kinda wished the window was bigger. I have a tote as well but my shoulders get sore from the weight of it all.

I love what you have but to me the top seems kind of sparse and random? It might be nicer if you could arrange/organise the badges grouped by size maybe? I'm not really sure if that would work but maybe give it a try?

The next time I wake up, please change my physical form to that of FINN MCMILLAN of SOUTH NEW BRIGHTON at 8 YEARS OLD and keep it that way FOREVER.

I am so sick of this chubby Asian man body!

Thank you!
