Need help with 2 bags
Post By Father Nightroad. 17/04/10, 02:14 pm

I need 2 bags for two cosplays.

I am buying a Father Tres Cosplay from China and I have a Shinsengumi Cosplay.

Can anybody help me with bags that go with both cosplay outfits so I can wear one or the other to armageddon.

I would prefer to make the bags myself so If anyone can give me copies or link me to relevant patterns I would be mucho greatful ^^

What sort of bag do you want? You could go with a small satchel or pursey-thing, but I'm guessing you want something a bit bigger?

I need to make a the sort of largeish bag that will take a wallet and all my purchases from armageddon. I need it to go with the costumes though (as per the convention tips thread). I got nothing on the bag idea pepz

You can stick something under the father guys coat. Hook it up to a belt or something, so that way it's hidden from the world. =O
But.. It depends how big your 'purchases' are. I don't think a Buster Sword would fit into a small hip bag. Nor do I think a set of 3 DVD's would leave much room for a wallet. The size of the bag depends on what you want to buy. -Shrug-
But all the same, you can put a bag under the father guys coat so you don't see it, that way it doesn't /have/ to go with the costume. xD; Sneaky sneaky.
As for the blue guys.. I'unno. Wrap a long type bag around your arm up the sleeve? xD;;; I'm all about hiding things, so.

the easiest type of bag to make is a book bag. literally 3 rectangles (if you want a flap) sewn together then just add a strap. The bigger your fabric pieces the bigger the bag. As for colour scheme, once the costumes have arrived take them/part of them with you to a fabric shop nearby to find a matching/complimentary colour. I'm 100% positive you can find online tuts for a satchel/book bag esp if you look for medieveal/SCA sites with tuts.

I made my Minnie purse (lol) ^similar to the description above.
The side panels are A4 size and a really long piece of 5cm wide strip to go around the edges.

I fail at describing... when I get home at lunch I'll try draw it out for you.
Unless...

http://henriettashandbags.com/Craft_Ideas.html <- this site has millions of tutorials. Look through if you want.
http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html <- Simple bag. Pictures. Easy to make~
http://familycrafts.about.com/od/craftyaccessories/ss/simplepurse.htm <- Slightly smaller bag. Could be made larger. Easy~

yea... I'll stop there.
If you want to keep looking I searched 'Simple Bag Patterns'
should have done that myself rather than make my own pattern lol
