I never noticed we could post this too!

I recently ordered a printing company to make me a hooded zip with pic related design (which is a rough sketch obviously). I wanted some wearable Vocaloid merch that wouldn't look too weeb-ish to people who don't know it well so I can wear it more easily to work and such.


>Bootlegs are never OK to buy and use, don't be a poorfag.
I hope it doesn't count as such. There simply isn't any official merch, and professional quality printing one item isn't cheap anyways. I assume this is more for things like replica figmas?

>on an unrelated note, why do the V5 voicebanks not have proper demo songs? Those tend to be some of my favourite because they tend to be better produced than a lot of the fanmade stuff around, beside of course those by professional producers and a few particular part-time/hobby-ist/fan producers. I'm still waiting for some actually professional quality songs with the new English voicebanks.

>As long as you're not knocking off existing merch for resale it's all good.
Thanks. I figured but wasn't 100% sure. Some other communities I'm in (especially music ones) consider everything not official bootleg, and considering I did use official art (but I think they allow it with Vocaloid stuff) I figured I'll better be save than sorry and post that disclaimer. Like, if there was official stuff I would have bought that, but there is none. Pretty exited for it to arrive, but the damn printing company is slow because of the season and a vacation they soon take.

I just came back from a flight today and used my bag as my carry-on with no problems. It had several safety pins and metal pieces in it and security didn’t say a thing. You should be fine! I’ve traveled with my bag as carry-on about three times now and each time has all been fine.

i used two different bags as carryons on my trip to japan. way there with a solid button tote was fine without incident, way back with an utapri backpack became a hassle because i got stopped for a random security check and they wanded each button/charm in it individually lol. overall though it wasn't a problem, my bad luck just meant i had to spend an extra minute or two beyond the normal while they looked through the window compartments.

My other question is if I should put a red cloth background here. Oh I also have some rosettes and mini plushies coming
>>
>>10069269
>>10069272
I really wish you'd use bags that matched the characters' colors more.
For the Saber bag, I think it'd look better if more of the pink background was covered. For example, swap the buttons over her head out with the transparent quote charm. You could even do the two buttons vertically and then move the whip charm next to it so that it's a row of buttons and then the charm to maximize coverage. I think the left side of the bag is pretty good since most of the base bag is covered.

For the Gil bag, I think you should balance out the merch more on either side of the big strap and do 3 pieces of merch on each side. Since you have the chibi charm already on the left side, maybe take out the chibi button and just do the charm and the two buttons.
I'd definitely add an insert, but maybe do a dark gold color. Imo red would overpower the merch unless you did a dark wine red.
>>
>>10069287
Thanks for the honest feedback, it's actually the same bag, just two different sides. I am thinking I shouldve gotten black but too late now. I swapped things around like you suggested and it makes the quote strap pop a lot more, so thank you!

My other question is should I put more Gil merch outside of the heart on the front of the bag? Or keep it underneath the cover
>>
>>10069269
Please for the love of God get rid of the baby pink bag. It suits neither Artoria or Gil and it just cheapens the entire look.

I'm in a bit of a moral dilemma. I want to grapevine certain rubber straps but they're very hard to find since they were an in-store exclusive and random. However, these straps recently got listed on Aliexpress for a much cheaper price. Do you think it's morally alright to buy them? I already own them from the official distribution but the rest I have to get from the overpriced secondhand market. Plus, I would prefer not to spend hoard of money and risk losing them when I take my bag out.
>>
>>10070501
I'd say no, for multiple reasons.
By buying it, you are supporting the theft with your money. There are often differences from the official straps with bootlegs, so if you're planning to grapevine them, it may be extra noticeable that you've got bootlegs going on.
>>
>>10069339
I personally prefer having all of my merch inside. Imo it looks cleaner and you don't have to worry about anything falling off (once had a keychain outside of my bag fall down an elevator shaft lol).
>>
>>10070501
I'd say no, because like the previous anon said, you're supporting theft and secondly in my opinion it lessens the value of your bag. Buying bootlegs of an expensive item and then using them for something like a grapevine seems like cheating, you don't need to do a grapevine of that strap in particular, just use a different one that's easier to get rather than a bootleg. And for the matter of losing them when you're using your bag, If you attach them to a chain with metal loops I think they're pretty unlikely to fall off. There's also ways to make them more secure. I've heard some people use small plastic zip ties, but I'm not sure how it would look.

You're not in a hurry with your bag, take your time and get the real things. I'm currently collecting expensive rubber straps (~$50 each) for a grapevine so I'm buying them slowly one by one to make it more affordable.

I hope this is okay to post here even though it's not technically a bag or even a finished layout. But could I get some concrit?

The blank spots on the right side are planned to mirror the left side, I just need to order the rest of it. I also plan to go with the ribbon Wego tote in black for my base bag. The merch that isn't placed on the far left is just leftover I have that I didn't plan on using, where the stuff on the far right I plan to have on the outside of the bag somewhere. I'd like to use the GraffArt button for a rosette.

Sorry for the big wall of text, and thank you in advance!

Good taste, anon. And I was hoping to possibly make a Gyro bag but maybe I'm just being too picky. I have a few stray pieces here and there for him but not enough to make a bag yet. If not I'll probably just make a Part 1 & 3 Dio bag like the basic cunt I am since decent merch for him is a tad easier to find.

>>10073966
I'm really liking the organization of this so far! Using a mesh background is a good idea and brings that nice little bit of texture in the back. Great job, anon, it's looking good.
>>
>>10073966
I think it looks great so far.

Were you looking for suggestions where to put the stuff on the right?
- The small charm stuff can go below the middle rectangle thing between the open scissors and the acrylic (?) keychain.
- the 3D keychain in the middle on top of rectangle merch inbetween keychains.
>>
>>10074012
Oh that does explain a lot, the later parts do tend to lack in merch, much like Vento Aureo used to be until the anime came out. In any case, you might be able to put something together with fan merch but if you're not into that, then holding off for a while might be worth the wait. I'm sure there's at least some Gyro merch out there for you, though might not be enough for a bag until SBR is adapted too.
But doing another character in the meantime is definitely a valid option, and you'll have no trouble with Dio.

Has anyone ever tried to display paper coasters in an itabag? I've accumulated quite a few coasters and I've never really done anything to display them and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.

How do you guys feel about mixed itabags? I feel like mine is extremely messy because it’s all over the place theme wise, but I also can’t bring myself to commit to a single series/character/ship. At one point I had a bag exclusively for sheith from voltron, but I still eventually tired of having just one theme. Should I just commit to a theme already? Or is it possible to have a nice looking itabag with multiple themes? I was thinking about going for a general theme like pink/magical girls/shoujo. I’d just like to hear some thoughts on the matter.
(Also, I’m a newfag, so I’m unsure about how you guys feel about the fanmerch. I support official products as much as I can when I like the products, but I also like to support small artists when I think the art is good.)

I don't think this counts as an itabag, honestly. It's a pin bag, or a fandom bag, or what have you, which is fine if you don't want to commit to a single theme. But it's not an itabag.
>>
>>10078082
This isn't an itabag. It's a shitty merch or pin bag, put on a knock off that you probably got from eBay, and you haven't even bothered to remove the chains/rings from most of the keychains, nor is there any sort of backing or insert.

Just throw this out and start over and actually look into what itabagging is meant to showcase.

>I also can’t bring myself to commit to a single series/character/ship

Other anons already pointed out that this isn't an itabag at all, just a pin bag, and I wanted to highlight this right here because this mentality is why it's not an itabag. An itabag is all about committing to a single character or ship to excess. Slapping pins/merch you like on a bag that has a display pocket does not an itabag make.

Also fan merch is fine, but should never be the majority of your merch.
>>
>>10078082
Just stick to Sheith since you have the most merch of it, put everything else away. If you can't commit to a single character/series/ship that's fine it's just not an itabag.

>Also fan merch is fine, but should never be the majority of your merch.
Eeeehhhh depends on the series, some series never get official merch made so I think it's fine to have entirely fanmerch bag and some series don't have much official merch so people combine them.

Thanks a ton; it's been a long time since I've been to these threads and had no idea these existed. Will definitely look into getting some. Sorry if this was a somewhat frequent question.

>>10077550
That sounds cute. I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it work with the amount of coasters I have but I might try it with one of them to see what its like. Do you have any tips or a tutorial?
>>
>>10078082
Agreeing with >>10078261 but if you get tired of themes often, you should probably invest in a smaller bag. Dedicate different inserts to different fandoms, and swap them out when you feel antsy. Small bags don't take as much merch to get a nice and full look, too.

I'm super excited for what I'm getting (7 acrylic straps, 2 pins, and a bromide) especially because he only started getting official merch recently and a lot of it is event-limited, but oof ouch my wallet. His character tax doesn't help either.

Ooooo what character?

Koito from Golden Kamuy! Here's what I'm getting, some of it is doujin merch. I forgot to mention the acrylic stand and also I have some stuff from amiami this month (The phone case isn't him specifically but it does have his name on it so I still wanted it)

With this haul I'll have all his official merch besides his coaster from the GK Treasure Cafe. That fucker is hard to find. His char tax isn't the worst in the series (looking at you, Ogata) but it still makes everything at least double in price.

I'm also probably going to have to get a second base bag and split up the doujin/official stuff. (So if anyone has any base recs for him please share)

Very cute! I like the charm in the top left a lot! I could see it as making a good centerpiece.

As a tanigakifag I feel you on them GK prices + character tax

Woah checked

I wanna get a new base bag to replace my current one but I’m not sure which one.
I have pic related and I want something similar size/style wise but iirc Wego doesn’t do the full window backpack anymore. Anyone know any good alternatives?

>got my second itabag after the straps broke off
>tried going for a Gravity Falls theme
>not enough merch
>thinking of going for a Jack Frost theme (which explains the Jack Frost plush in the corner)
>not enough merch without diverting into adding in Persona 3/4/5 stuff
How do you guys handle filling itabags with characters that don’t have enough merch?
>>
>>10082079
The question is answered in the FAQ... But to make it even easier for you:
Repeats, an insert + other deco, commissioning artwork to make badges/acrylics/etc.
>>
>>10082079
You could also just... use a smaller bag.
>>
>>10082079
One of my bags was made for a character who had very limited official merch when I first started making the bag and I made do by adding appropriately themed deco (flowers that he's associated with) and figuring a layout that maximized coverage.
However, your bag seems random and pin bag-y. Why did you choose that base bag, since it doesn't match GF nor Jack Frost? Like the other anon said, you should probably just get a smaller bag and separate your GF stuff from your Persona stuff.

>>10082079
Honestly, the bag is quite the mess. Even just going for gravity falls the series seems kinda messy since there's such a huge variety in characters, maybe just do Dipper or Mabel or do a twin bag of them? That could be kinda cute. As for the Jack frost, he's pretty damn random there they make itabags that are slightly bigger than pencil cases which I would recommend for the Jack frost stuff.
>>
>>10082079
As a Jack Frost bagger, there is definitely enough merch. I have a double sided cross body bag and a small pouch filled. You just gotta try a bit harder...and listen to the other anons.

I have this one. Been using it as my daily bag for about a month and still holding up fantastically. Very sturdy.

what kind of bag would be good for plushies? i have a couple mini nesoberis i want to make bags for but i can't exactly just stuff them in or else the vinyl gets misshapen and everything inside just looks messy and uneven, so i'm trying to find something with a 'deeper' pocket, if that makes any sense
>>
>>10083193
Wego's deco totes are pretty good for that, they have a pretty deep window!

You have good taste, he's the cutest mascot and he makes me personally very happy. I've been wanting to bag for him for years; I'm a persona bagger but he's got a special place in my heart.
>>
I'm going to a con and I want to bring my bags but I'll be staying with some strangers. Should I play it safe and just bring one I'll have an eye on the entire con? Or should I go all out? It's my last con for a while.
>>
>>10085717
Go all out but have your luggage be lockable; that way whenever you need to leave any behind you can just stack them in there.
>>
>tfw feeling detached from this hobby

How do I get the fire and spice back into my itabag life?
>>
>>10086015
You can always take a break and come back to it when you feel ready. Forcing it just might make it worse. If you have characters that you love and have bags for or ideas for, feel free to check in on new merch for them here and there, and maybe a piece will spark something in you.

You could also branch out altogether and watch some new shows, see if any characters stand out to you that would make you want a bag for them.
>>
I've been planning to make an itabag for months and I'm still unable to settle on a base bag. Style, color, and price never seem to match up.
>>
>>10086061
What character? What kind of bag do you want?
>>
>>10086088
Ike, from Fire Emblem. I would prefer a bag that I can wear on my back or shoulder.
>>
>>10086023
Thank you anon I needed that
>>
>>10086096
I think any blue wego backpack would look nice for Ike.
