A thread for discussing and sharing pictures of itabags!

>What is an itabag?

Itabags (literally translating to painful or cringe bag) are bags decorated in character goods, usually badges, charms and plushies dedicated to the wearers husbando, OTP, favorite game, etc!

Nice thread! I wanna start my own itabag but I have no idea where or how. are there any rules to follow? how can I avoid a shitabag?

No. 333554

There's a really useful google doc that goes over useful terms for buying merch and creative ideas for if your character doesn't have any!

>how can I avoid a shitabag?

Try and stick to a theme! Avoid bootleg merch and try to keep it within the a certain color palette, stuff like rosettes among other accessories are always encouraged since they look fantastic though!

Seeing so many girls and women in Japan wearing itabags when I went to Mandarake or Animate was fun, but I don't see myself using a bag as big as the ones sold for that purpose. I kind of wish there were cute, smaller everyday bags that could work, to make a small itabag.

Honestly, my dream Itabag is a bag I can use everyday, even at work, that has some sort of panel to hide the mobile shrine during moments in which I need to hide my powerlevel, but that will still let me carry my husbandos anywhere I go so I can look at them and remember why I’m working so hard.

I think it's sort of cute but it kinda looks better without badges
This is why I don't like overly specific itabag bases though, you're better off with a more basic base so you can fit more merch in without distractions from the bag itself.

They're also doing an Asuka one though which is kinda funny.

I always love them since it feels like more love goes into bags for characters from older series that (obviously) have less merch. You can really tell the person has been dedicated to the character for years and is less likely to jump ship when the new idoru series comes out like a lot of flavor of the week baggers.

honestly I think it's because he's more of an all-ages character and the sheer volume of merch means there's more plain stuff out there. Like every husbando keychain is going to be designed with female fans' taste and itabagging in mind, meanwhile Kirby is popular with kids as well so there's a lot of generic merch like what a little boy who plays the video games would want. Here in the US it's hard to find official kirby merch that isn't literally just a png of basic promo art. However there has been a LOT more cutesy kirby collections for female fans recently so I feel like now is the time to make a bag for him

No. 335682

You mean the one with a whole room full of merch, most of it custom? I don't think that's a shitpost when she's been so dedicated and autistic for years. Also how is she "pretending" to be a lesbian? If her only romantic relationship is with Randy Marsh then I hate to be the one to tell you he is not a man, he is a cartoon character.

>I don't think that's a shitpost when she's been so dedicated and autistic for years
It really hasn't been years, a lot of the stuff she has on her walls are just print outs anyway, which considering that the guy who filled his entire mansion with Sayaka Maizono cut outs has never played danganronpa it's pretty clearly the new 'ironic internet' meme.

tbh women with unconventional or meme tier husbandos may play up the irony to avoid hiding it entirely while having others believe they're memeing. kinda like coomer men do with their fetishes. trust me i would know because i do that. so every time you see a onceler bag, keep in mind there's a chance it might be genuine, and isn't that a horrifying thought.

like another anon said, take away the gender shit and it's A+.

in general i love ita bags for female characters or mascot characters more than for moids, especially when they're from hyped flavor of the month/season shows. i want to make my own ita bag sometimes (of either maki from jjk or pompompurin) but i don't buy merch anymore.

Sorry to reply to a week old post but this was my dilemma as well until companies started producing bags to remedy this issue. I use this one from WEGO which is pretty popular because it's cute, functional, and only ¥5,000. The front looks like a normal purse and the back is transparent for displaying merch. It even comes with the backing to pin merch to which can also be removed and turned around if you really wanted to be stealthy. It comes in a ton of different colours too

Zenmarket used to be my favorite, but the raised their per-item price to 500 yen, so it isn't affortable anymore. I haven't tried it yet because I'm low on money righ now, but I have heard good things about Dejapan, their tax is just 100 yen per item (+ free if you only order a single item) so that's probably the cheapest one now.
The trick is to find merch bundles on Mercari, specially the ones labelled as "junk" (I once got 2 figures for €30 just because they were missing their bozes), just make sure it's a bundle and not a "tell me what you want from the image" listing. I heard yahoo auctions is great for the same stuff as Mercari, but I'm a Eurofag so I can't confirm. Suruga-ya is also very useful to find individual stuff for cheap.

Honestly the dealbreaker when importing from japan is the weight, you have to stay under 1kg to have cheap shipping & it's so hard, specially when just a single book weights 800gr & the padding adds to he 1kg.

It's from @mogutan_gamer on Twitter if you want to see more. She's completely enamored with Yukamitsu and it brings me so much joy, I have never seen someone so obssesed (that isn't a porn-rotted scrote) with a f/f ship. She posts different coordinations of her merch daily, though I don't know if she has an actual itabag. I hope we get pics of her collection someday, it seems massive (for what these 2 character have)

Same here, when it's shitty woke stuff it's bad, but I honestly enjoy when people spend time and effort to create something of their favourite character instead of just buying the same mass-produced plastic as everyone else.

It's definitely a zone that has it's upsides and downsides I think

>Great for more obscure characters or characters who are western and way less likely to get official merch because of that
>A lot of time the design is more lovingly done than the official merch which is sometimes just stock art printed on a badge
>can be cheaper than the official merch
>Sometimes it can look kind of messy with a bunch of clashing art styles, this is avoidable if you're willing to pick carefully and place them nicely, but I'd say it's the main downside to fanmerch only bags (some of them can still look fantastic though like this one >>333951 )
>tumblr art and pronoun pin stuff can be common depending on the fandom, meaning that it's not only harder to find merch but harder to find inspiration for your bag.

God this, the other day I saw someone opening preorders for your usual acrylic keychains and I got excited because they made some of obscure characters I like that have no merch, but then I saw the price was $18. I passed so hard after that, it's a straight up robbery.

They included a ugly lanyard (not a full one, just those small ones that they add sometimes to keychains), but I don't think that would add an extra $10. It made me remember why I never buy merch from US artists, almost $20 for a 5cm keychain that you arent even producing yourself + trying to makie so much profit using characters that you don't even have the rights of should be illegal; even with VAT and shipping buying from JP artists is cheaper and have better quality

I think the problem anons had with fanmerch is when people made fanmerch bags for characters that had plenty of real merch. For example, back in the day people would make itabags filled with fanmerch for characters from anime like BNHA or YOI that had boatloads of real merch that they could've preordered or done box splits for to fill their bag. Most anons I recall were supportive of baggers who made bags of characters with little to no official merch and even had resources for where to have your own merch made. I personally don't really mind them, especially when you can tell they put a lot of effort into the presentation and curation rather than a shitabag like picrel where they just went to the artist alley at a con and bought the first few things they saw so they can say they made a bag kek

No. 336366

I used DeJapan a year ago & the high shipping was because they put everything in a big box which was totally unecessary, it was almost half empty. Last time I shipped with Japanpost was 2 months ago using Neokyo and they charged me only €14 for 1kg so i'm not sure why it was so pricey for you

I think they're premade bears from some company that also sells anime/game outfits for them, I have seen a handfull of bear cosplay around suruga-ya

They raised the prices last month, that's probably why you had a normal shipping price.
Weird, I haven't seen anyone complain. So Dejapan are kind of like Buyee 2.0? They have tons of hidden fees (even a "we check if your parcel arrived" one kek) and they put the original shipping box on another box, so if you order more than 1 thing you get a massive package.
I had Neokyo under my radar, but after some maths I saw my usual 4-8 item orders were cheaper with Zenmarket before their price raise. But since it looks Dejapan isn't that good I will switch to Neokyo instead.

I love bags that show the love of the creator with their sheer creative skill and attention of detail to the character… You can put as many overpriced can badges as you want to show "muh dedication", but something with just two badges, rosettes, and a shittily made plushie will still beat it any day.

That being said… I do think there's some creative ways to display duplicate badges. I like the rosettes used here, and the color scheme is flattering. But the stupid ちいかわ thing is unnecessary.

That's true, can't really think of many non sanrio bunnies I'm into though.
I joked a while back that if you put an usakumya in it that it looks like you skinned her mom and put her inside of her.

Apparently minimal merch bags have been getting really popular in the Chinese scene? I think they're pretty but I still prefer bags with lots of merch, seems like a great option for characters with minimal merch however.

Komaeda's character tax is pretty high but there's a fair amount of merch of him so you do have a lot of options.
Generally the best place to get danganronpa merch is surugaya and mercari jp.
I'm going to be honest though I'd go in not expecting to find merch for cheap if you're going to do a bag for Komaeda so pacing yourself is a good idea (speaking as a fellow dangan bagger for a high character tax character).

Honestly you're better off using food accessories (ie: maybe a plush tomato keychain on the outside?) over actually the bag shaped like a tomato, mainly just because there's more room for merch in a regular sized bag.

Overly themed bags have a couple of issues, they're usually pleather so they flake like crazy over short periods of time and are usually small so you can't put a lot of merch in them.

I might replace the plushie with another of the fish charm and add some other badges at the top, but overall I like how the fabric swap+rosette (my favorite~) came out a lot!
