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?
https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.1-c.w4004-13648567324.14.f3fe73aesolB8X&id=558953768056
>>
>>10219598
I think a flat plush like a nitotan could work. They fit in similar bags that I've put them in, but I can't say that I've tried it with that particular model.

>>10219582
I love Diabolik lover's merch, it's all so pretty.

Does anyone have a badge maker and make custom ones for your fandom at all? I wouldn't mind having some more unique badges and die cut shapes. I really like enamel pins a lot too do variety.
>>
>>10219570
Stop posting pin boards/bags with no relation to itabags.

>>10219652
Pin bags are fandom fashion

A bunch of random shit stuck on a board that half of the time is just a bunch of random 'quirky quotes' isn't fandom fashion.
>>
>>10219573
I always get irrationally angry when I see merch on the OUTSIDE of a bag with a clear window. Clear bags exist specifically so you can keep your merch safe, just buy a bigger bag PLEASE.
>>
>generic pinboards in the op image
is this really what we're coming to as a community?
>>
>>10219651
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
>>
>>10219753
I think having a couple pieces on the outside can work well, like a rubber charm on the zipper, a plushie or a rosette
>>
>>10219919
You can also check if your local FabLab/Maker space has a button press, usually the membership or hourly fee is quite low

I think the fact that it's a board is what disqualifies it from being posted here. These threads are for shit you can wear, be it a bag or jacket, etc. You can't wear a board.
The exception would be shrines but OP isn't even a shrine.
>>
>>10220023
that was exactly what i was implying, there really needs to be a line drawn in the hobby as it really is a different practice than bagging. i just really don't think it belongs here, sorry.

I'm not talking about boards. I'm talking about bags.

>infighting already
Anyone have any bag inspo, for Jojo specifically? I really don't see too many good character specific ones floating around for it, mostly just pinbags and random assortments of merch.
>>
>>10220068
most are notoriously shitty for some reason. pic related is the least of all evils that I could find.
>>
>>10219954
oh yeah, that’s definitely an option too. kind of like 3D printing at libraries.

my roomie does AA so it made sense for her to buy it outright. my other thought was just for manus without a moq per design (just whole order) plenty of artists will let you ride along for minimal cost. that usually comes up re: acrylics but for stuff like holo/unique buttons it works too

>>10220162
Holy shit, they really just shoved one a whole medicos figure in the Bucciarati bag and called it a a day.
on another note, everything seems so haphazardly and randomly placed in these, especially the plushes which would be way better as centerpieces. It really makes everything looks rushed af especially when both of these have the amount of official merch to probably look nice and coordinated in the end.
>>

huge selfpost, but yes! this was from when we met up in japan last year, since we arent local to each other. the hardest part was finding a cecil backpack desu... ton of fun tho, 10/10 would recommend

>>10220702
It sounds fun but I’m not sure who to do it with, or with what series. My boyfriend likes some of the same things that I really like but I’d want to find something that we both like with all of our hearts. My friends we have lesser in common but I’m sure I can find something I really enjoy with them one day.

>>10220706
That’s super cute. I want to full dive into SB69 but I only dabbed in it. The characters look so cute that I don’t think I can stick to one.

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

>>10220991
As in you've seen the Taobao version or the original Wego version? This scares me as I've been hunting down the Wego to use as simple itabag.

I’d love to do it, but I don’t think anyone would be willing to do it with me...

What’s wrong with self posting anons? You don’t need to pardon it. Are we supposed to just save content from everyone else or what?

Self posting opens yourself up to a lot of bitter "Your bag sucks why bother posting it?" anons.
>>
>>10221255
>>10221258
I think there’s a higher expectation for anons because anons here are more knowledgeable/have the opportunity to be more knowledgeable than the average itabagger so there’s higher standards and it should be more impressive.
>>
>>10221008
>>10221127
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.

>>10221255
It's 4chan culture that selfposting gets a lot of yelling in responses. Cgl is better than other boards but still pretty toxic

>>10221255
Half of the self posts I see get trashed, so it's understandable that people would be nervous. I would never post mine here. I do this shit for fun, I have no desire to open up to that kind of crit.
>>
I’m not sure how I feel about thisz Am I the only one who thinks this looks like shit?
>>
>>10221594
I think it just feels a little sad. Don't know if I want to call it shit when I've seen MUCH worse. I can tell whoever did this tried, but it's just difficult to make a bag when you only work with cards. Not really familiar with MTG or the character but I'm assuming there isn't much in terms of merch.
>>
>>10221594
Idk I’d just get rid of the buttons to make it look consistent.
>>
>>10221594
I don't like the cards on the outside, but as the other anon said, it's really hard when you don't have much to go off of.
I'd try to make the layout neat and even, like a grid of cards.
>>
>>10219916
Yes. Deal with it
>>
>>10221609
I feel like the base bag isn’t the right for this kind of execution, maybe a tote and just overlap a bunch of cards like a grid as you said would of looked way better with the heart window it just looks thrown together.
>>
>>10221618
That character's an angel so I can see what the bagger was thinking, but yeah it's just not working.

Anyone has pics of lolitas with itabags like pic related? Other jfash coords are fine too, I just need some inspo.

Out of curiosity, would there be much interest in buying customs clothing for Nendoroid Doll/Obitsu/etc?
I have seen some people using plushes/dolls on their itabags or just itabaggers who happen to also have custom dolls of their favs and I was wondering if anyone would have interest in purchasing something like that?
I'm currently job hunting and want something to keep me distracted and possibly earn a bit of money.
>>
>>10222120
I've been waiting for someone who does custom nendos to open for about a year now; I would definitely be interested to fill the gap until they can work on mine.
>>
>>10222120
Can you email me your rates? I made a nendo doll for my shrine, but all I have to dress her at the moment are garish Kelly outfits.
>>
>>10221594
I love MTG but there are so many better bags for a card layout, like >>10219580 is made exactly for displaying trading cards. It's probably as good as you can get for a small heart window bag

Seems fun actually. Is it your first picture?

Kinda not related but I’m taking very small baby steps and I’m kinda getting sick of not making process, however I switched from a bootleg bag and a bad that doesn’t suit my character/series to an alright small bag. How long did it take you to reach to your point, anon?
>>
>>10222779
That photo was taken at AX just two weeks ago. It actually didn’t take long to collect my merch since UtaPri is absolutely flooded. Two large auction hauls make up a majority of my collection and a lot of what I use on my bags. But overall I’ve only been seriously collecting Cecil stuff for about 1.5 years.

I remember seeing you on the way to the con! Your bags are really well put together and it's inspiration for me to improve my bags.

Hauls seems to be the key thing, and it makes sense considering it’s Utapri. But I just have to keep going, thanks anon.

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.

>>10222629
Beautiful boys!! Are they from Show by Rock? I've been meaning to take a look into it
>>
>>10223027
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.

Thankyou so much!! Yes they are both from sb69.

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.
>>
>>10223201
>>10223218
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.
I do think I might start with kimonos like suggested as well, they're simple and they just look adorable on any character, plus I can play about with pretty fabrics.
Thank you so much once again!
>>
>>10223218
This is absolutely adorable.

>>10223027
Check /toy/'s BJD thread, I posted some patterns from Dollybird for Obitsu and Nendoroid Dolls. They're both pretty basic, but good for comparing how their measurements differ.

It's currently really hard to find good Nendoroid Doll-size pants, because Obitsu have smaller hips and longer legs.

Tossed some of my HypMic collection in for a quick size/item show. Not sure how I feel about acrylics bumping around on the outside. The D-rings on the outside might be better suited to rubber straps or plushies.

Using the yellow one as a Mercy pinbag and the purple one might just be Rio because the colors actually didn't look half bad once I started putting stuff in there.
>>
Does anyone here know anything about pin collecting, in particular Disney pins? I've started collecting Stitch merch about 2 years back and have a pretty sizeable amount of plushes and plush keychains/charms, but Disney doesn't really do acrylics, so my best option seems to be their park pins.

>>10223623
>>10223641
Nice haul! They're smaller than I realized but it really does highlight the merch showcased
>>
>>10223711
What do you want to know in particular? I've been collecting WDW pins since I was a child.
>>
>>10223751
I've tried doing some research on them, mostly what I've learned is "scrappers" is basically B grade pins but are considered legit by Disney, and that Ebay/Amazon disney pin grab bags are actually somehow legit? (I doubt this though). I was interested in trying to find a source that said which pins were in rotation in which park because some blogs were talking about staff exclusive pins?
>>
>>10223767
Those grab bags that aren't sold by Disney...I don't know about those. I've never bought those because it just screams "scam" to me. If something's too good to be true, chances are it is. But I know some legit pin sellers that do them. I don't think I'd trust a faceless Amazon seller though, since there's a ton of Chinese sellers on there they might be selling knockoffs. Remember that the MSRP for single pins tends to be $10-$16.

Most of the time I'll buy at the parks whenever I go back. If you are in the parks, you can also trade with cast members that have lanyards with pins on them (usually at kiosks selling pins). I have a feeling that's how you could maybe get those "staff exclusive" ones you mentioned.

You can find great deals on eBay though, just be careful with where they are coming from. Obviously, don't buy from Chinese sellers. Look for US sellers with high feedback ratios, and also see if their listings show the backs of the pins. Disney puts backstamps on all of the pins. If the listing shows a backing card, that also is a good sign that it's authentic. I can specifically recommend domdisneypin and disneytradingpins4u. I've bought from them both and I got authentic pins in perfect or near-perfect conditions.

Also, you might come across listings that will label something as a "fantasy pin". Those are fan pins, not official Disney merch. They're pretty neat though, so if you don't care about mixing fan w/ official, go for it.

As for finding a blog with pin news...I can't help with that, sorry. Maybe search up some Youtubers? I follow a girl that just blogs about the new food options at the parks. If that exists, there has to be someone doing the same for pins.
>>
>>10223711
If you're in the area of either park (more so Orlando than California) try the Disney Character Warehouses. You can get everything from regular to limited edition or event pins for 50% or more off.

I went the other year and walked off with a bunch of stuff for cheap from Haunted Mansion and Pirates blind boxes. There are even blogs that go monthly to show you what's in the outlets in case you're only traveling at select times.

Seconding >>10223819 as well on pin trading. You can go to the outlets or buy a cheap starter pack at the parks and then trade them for what you want with cast members. As far as I know they're not allowed to refuse a trade so you can get rid of your unwanted pins pretty easily. I believe each resort on the Orlando monorail has a trading pinboard as well. But with staff/resort trading you really don't know what's available ahead of time.
>>
>>10223009
A lot of my inspo just comes from other UtaPri baggers. Like this by my friend. I’m thinking of rearranging my official Cecil tote more like this. It’s very organized and clean
>>
>>10223623
japanese used usually means someone breathed in the same room as the item once. either that or its totally beat to shit, but i find thats a lot less common
>>
this might be a dumb question, but my BTSSB window bag came in and i was wondering if it was really necessary to have an insert to put pins and things in? i'm still probably going to make some in a few colors to match coords, but i wondered since the pocket fabric has a cute print if it might be intended to be left bare.
>>
>>10224188
You don't need one. Some people just prefer them because it's easier to organize pins onto an insert and then put it into the bag than it is to do it straight in the bag.
>>
>>10223901
>>10223819
Thank you for advice! I was thinking of buying those starter packs and then trading for Stitch pins later on. I will definitely look at the two Ebay sellers- good to know some are legit! I'm also not near any Disney parks, but I plan on going to Tokyo Disney Sea for vacation next Spring. Any advice for looking over in Japan?

Also, all Disney pins have a mickey shaped backing, right?
>>
>>10224235
You lucky anon!
I'm not entirely sure if pin trading is even a thing at the Tokyo Disney parks. I don't really see them in secondhand auctions on Y!Japan too much, it's always the pressed coins. Those are extremely popular over there and some resell for a lot.

I think you'd have better odds of finding other Japan exclusive Stitch merch there since they have a LOT of stuff we don't.
And definitely go see Stitch's show in Tokyo Disneyland at the Tiki Room!

> When a series is so old/unpopular that merch is nonexistant and some of the pins you've managed to get are still in their og packaging

The stuff's waiting for me at the post office and it's killing me to consider opening any of it
>>
>>10224245
Ahh, thank you so much! I'm super excited to go!

I'll definitely keep an eye out for everything Stitch- didn't even know about the Tiki Room show until you told me!

For Disney pin collecting:

Watch for bootlegs/fakes and scrappers.

Bootlegs are pins made by Chinese factories who are illegally using the Disney molds to produce low quality pins. You can find lots of bootlegs/fakes for cheap on ebay and they do unfortunately get traded in the parks by people who usually don't realize that they're fake.

Scrappers are from the official "Disney" production runs, but they were too low quality for Disney to sell. Although Disney has been slowly upping their official pin quality in the last few years, even official Disney pins--in my opinion--don't have great quality, so scrappers are even shittier.
Here's a good guide to spotting fakes: https://www.themeparktourist.com/features/20140526/18214/7-ways-tell-if-disney-pin-genuine

To avoid fakes, I only buy them from the stores or from people buying them brand new from the parks.

If you're looking for Stitch pins, here is a database with all the official ones: https://www.pintradingdb.com/pinList.php?catId[]=27

This does breakdowns by park/company as well.

You can also look for fantasy pins, which is a pretty way of saying "unofficial pins that aren't legal but Disney looks the other way for the most part." Fantasy pins are usually higher in quality than official Disney pins and have more details and interesting designs. Best way to find them without diving into the whole fantasy pin world is looking on ebay or on Instagram with the tag "fantasypinsforsale" Just be aware that you may be paying a lot more for them than a typical $10-15 official Disney pin because they tend to be much larger and they have small production runs.

Tokyo Disney does not do trading, but there are pins to buy. There's no guarantee what will be available when you go, but if you ask a cast member they may be able to point you in the direction of Stitch pins, if you're specifically looking for Stitch.

Hope no one minds all the disney pin questions. Does anyone recognize this seller as legit? https://www.etsy.com/shop/DisneyEnchantment

>>10224277
Wow, thank you! The pin database is pretty much exactly what I needed! And thank you for the tip on Tokyo Disney- I will be looking!
>>
>>10212308
Did anyone buy these? Confirm quality?
>>
>>10224292
The pins in the photos are scrappers for sure. But its honestly hard to find non-scrapper versions of a lot of the blind bag and older pins, so if you find the quality in that image fine, go for it!

Super lucky, I hope you love it if(when?) you open them

>>10224299
you're amazing at this, thank you so much again. I think I'll try them out
>>
>>10224250
There's a series I like that finding merch outside of the manga and DVDs is a pain. There's an art book and random merch pops up rarely. I saw a keychain like, once on ebay. Any itabag I'd make would probably be like 99% fan merch.

>>10224308
What series, anon?

This is their digital store: https://kyoani.shop-pro.jp/ Digital wallpapers are 216 yen

Jing King of Bandits. It was never a popular series to begin with but I'm fond of it. It did have a set of Gameboy games though.

Not having an insert easily makes your bag droop.

Is itabagging dead now?
>>
>>10224368
Maybe
>>
>>10224368
The hype has certainly died down. Pinbags are the new trendy thing but even that has lost its fever pitch.

Personally, I think here it's so slow because a number of people burned themselves out trying to go above and beyond to be "the most devoted" or a variety of other related reasons. I know a few triggered shopping addictions or got into debt from trying to keep up with the sudden hype where a collection they slowly worked on for years they suddenly felt like they had to speed up just to keep up with everyone else.

I'm sort of glad it's dying/dead in that regard because it might just wind up being a more healthy hobby now for everyone involved.
>>
>>10224368
Maybe the true definition of itabagging is and maybe in /cgl/ it is, but I think more and more people are constantly putting (randomly assorted) things in a window bag.
>>
>>10224368
Who gives a shit
>>
Hmm...
>>
>>10224368
Based off what I see in cons, far from it. Itabagging has a decent community aspect to it, but it tends to be a community among the fans of a series, not random gulls online. Most of my con friends irl have shown interest in bagging, but they worry it’s too much money

>>10224451
It’s cute but kind of ugly
But also 4 way which is cool

I got them today and I'm definitely in love, the age on some of these shows but there's twice as much stuff here than what was advertised on the listing

I got doubles of several, so I feel less guilty about the possibility of opening things. Now the only problem is that I still haven't picked a base bag

I also ended up with these, but I don't recognize the series or who the man is (an idol, I'm guessing?)

Sorry the dark photos, no matter how bright I get the room it looks like a dungeon
>>
>>10224368
It's slowed down, but I don't really care if it's 'dead' per se because it's a hobby I enjoy. Hopefully soon enough the pinbaggers will die off and it'll just be people actually passionate about the hobby again.
>>
>>10224451
That's a really great bag for all us who don't want frilly ribbon shit for our butch ass husbands. I welcome bags that look like I can use them for any actual bag

> Tsuritama
Gosh that's a fantastic haul! I haven't even seen some of these merch before, did you win a giant box off Y!A?
>>
>>10224638
I did! Tsuritama's my all time favorite and only recently did I realize I had the means to *buy* things for it

I did some research on the merch that existed and started digging into Y!A to see what I could see, was my very first visit and got incredibly lucky!

Color options.

Would you pay $89 retail and possibly plus shipping for it? I’d like a circle design but something that tips me off of it is like the vinyl(?) in connecting to the “leather”. It seems like it’s a little flimsy or off or something. A shame too.
>>
>>10225200
That’s a nice blue

>>10225203
It might just be me, but the puckering of the fabric along the edge concerns me about the quality. Unless it’s made of genuine leather, I’m not sure $90 is worth it for a simple design
>>
>>10225207
Thank you for describing it better than I had, that’s what I mean. And it’s vegan leather.
>>
>>10225213
Also I didn’t realize that the color was suppose to be pink, not red...

I was just thinking it’d be a cute idea for me to use as a design point.
>>
>>10225203
Seems expensive when it looks of similar quality to $20 bags I've seen. As the other anon said it looks like there's some puckering on the black one. "Vegan leather" just means faux leather.
>>
For people who own both obitsu11 and nendoroid doll bodies which do you prefer and think are better. I know OB11 are slightly bigger but was wondering if there were any other major differences besides size
>>
>>10225203
Nope, hell no. I've been following her on Instagram and was excited because I loved the size and the colors, and before I saw the reveal post I figured it would be $50 maximum. Saw $90 plus shipping and noped out of there. And it has her brand name in huge letters on the back which is a no go for me.
>>
>>10225203
No.
>>
>>10225291
Might just be a weirdo but my favourite is actually the cu-poche body. Just works better aesthetically imo. But all three bodies are fine functionally, you should pick the one you like the look of.
>>
>>10225352
i already own a OB11 and just wanted the opinions of people who swapped theirs out for the nendoroid bodies if it was an upgrade, since both bodies are almost identical. cupoche body is too awkward to clothe imo
>>
>>10225291
OB11 has longer legs, Nendolls have longer torsos with more definition between the waist and the hips.

I think that if you're using them for a character that wears anything skintight, the Nendoll is a better choice, because the torso looks more natural despite the gaps at certain angles. If you're using it for a traditional Japanese character, do with OB11, because Nendolls can't sit seiza.
>>

>>10225449
Someone has done a really handy review on MFC
https://myfigurecollection.net/blog/42522

I wouldn't call either an upgrade, both have pros and cons about them, and it'll come down to what you want your doll to look like. I personally ended up with the nendo dolls as nendo heads can actually go on them, and it has the cinnamon body option. I also find the chibi like proportions a lot cuter than OB11 which look more lanky.

One complaint I do have is the extra hand parts GSC have come out have very poor quality control. All the hands with ball joints are extremely loose and fall out of the nendo hand sockets. Which really sucks as I was excited to have moveable hand parts.
