Has anyone attempted to fit smaller plushes (along the lines of nitotans that aren't too bulky) into the non-heart window of one of these Sambag double sided bags, specifically the smaller messenger one? Would it even be viable?

i got my roommate to buy a 57mm badge maker so when i get art commissions i can make badges in the right size for them. getting specialty dies is a little harder than i thought but i really hope we can get a star-shaped one because they’re cute.

it’s a pretty big cost of entry though, if you have the ability to use the art you can always join a GO or specialty maker for some badges

Holy shit, they really just shoved one a whole medicos figure in the Bucciarati bag and called it a a day.

I've seen these, which I think are super cute as a bag, but the pocket irl is really thin and useless so it doesn't work well as an itabag with proper protection for merch. If there's something with a bigger window or more plastic covering though, please sauce this poor anon

Sorry, I should have been more clear. What I meant is that I found the pocket quite shallow, so it doesn't really fit much merch and it's difficult to arrange nicely in the small space.

Sorry for the delayed reply..! I wasn't expecting such a quick interest, to the point of being asked for rates right away!
I've been interested in trying out making custom clothing for my own obitsu body and for my omanjuu but it was only an idea I've been entertaining for a while, I haven't yet started (so no examples to show atm, sorry. The only similar thing I've done was a silly penguin "omanjuu" for a friend, pic related).
I have a degree in sewing but making teeny tiny doll clothes seems like a challenge simply due to the size so, my plan was to make a couple basic outfits/2 piece sets (something generic like a school uniform, maybe?) to test things out. If it went fine and there was interest in commissions, I'd totally be up for it.
To help me out, what sort of price ranges would you feel comfortable with/would think fair? Say, for a generic/standard outfit and for a commissioned outfit?

Thank you so much once again, I'm going to look into materials now. I'm closeby to a fabric district as well so, I can make virtually anything.

Beautiful boys!! Are they from Show by Rock? I've been meaning to take a look into it

>> No.10223201

If look at BJD commissioners on test to see what they're selling, how much they go for, etc. Also uniforms for series like AoT or sailor moon where everyone is wearing basically the same fucking things would be good for generic stock. I see seifuku all the time for obitsus, but I don't really see gakuken or kimonos if you want something generic but in demand.

Always charge a bit more for original designs or specific outfits.

I would suggest checking out etsy and how people price their clothing too. The prices there are generally about $30. That's a good starting point for generic clothing, but remember to add extra for labour and then pricing upwards for complicated designs.

Thank you SO much for the wonderful advice!
I'll take a peek at bjd commissioners (actually didn't even cross my mind, I forget it's a fairly big community) and etsy like you both suggested.
