Licht + Lawless ItaBag
https://media1.tenor.com/images/c3a543a813c9252fdb2457ff3048d9e4/tenor.gif
Also known as : Babies First ItaBag
I decided to descend into ItaBag madness not with a Victuri ItaBag; but with a Greed Pair ItaBag.
Well I'm not going to destroy my Victuri shrine/ItaDesk now am I? Are you crazy? lol
If Yuri!!! On Ice is my #1 anime; then Servamp is my #1 manga.
It was only a matter of time before I cracked and started buying merchandise for it, and what better way to ease into Servamp merchandise collecting than with an ItaBag! I've been wanting to make one for some time now but couldn't decide on a character, so I thought why not make one with Licht and Lawless.
In all honesty Kuro is probably my favourite Servamp character, but my favourite ship/pairing is the Greed Pair! So instead of binge buying way too many Kuro straps/badges and ending up with a massive ItaBag I decided on a smaller scale tribute to Licht and Lawless who I also adore.

Thus I began binge ordering and bidding on straps/keychains thanks to my enablers at FromJapan (there was also one stray Lawless Strap from GoodsRepublic). If you read my loot posts you've probably already seen a few of these pop up in the last month or so.
Too many dollar signs later and I’d managed to amass a small hoard of goods. Since half of them were released a few years ago I honestly thought I’d be doomed to never find any, not to mention a fair few of them were limited/exclusives. I felt like the merchandise gods must have been smiling down upon me.
Or maybe it was our angel Licht, who knows.
I was also searching for a bag during the chaotic strap ordering frenzy and initially I was planning on a decent sized but somewhat plain black one.
That was until, I found this and it honestly would have been an insult to Licht if I didn’t use this for his ItaBag.
BEHOLD!

Love heart for the ship and angel wings for Licht. It was perfect~
This is actually a legit WEGO bag! (Can you tell I’m excited about this yet? Ha ha~)
I was originally going to buy a cheap version from AliExpress until I discovered they don’t accept PayPal. So I decided to search around and saw WEGO are actually the official makers of it. I was super thankful the bag was still available for pre-order though I’d have to wait until late December for the release date; and early January 2018 to actually receive it :’)
At least now I have a nice high-quality bag to use!
Bag finally in hand I was finally able to make an insert for it so I could add and adjust all the straps and badges easier. I also didn’t want to ruin the lining of the bag.
It’s just a simple slip of fabric over a piece of cardboard. I opted to make a slip so I could hide the safety pins used to attach the straps behind to make it a bit neater looking.
I didn’t want the fabric to be too bright since I want the straps/badges to be the main focus, so I went for a plainer sparkly fabric. Which ended up costing me an arm and a leg. Yikes!
Quite fitting for these sparkly over dramatic dorks.

It looked like a merchandise warzone mid-insert creation.

ItaBag? More like ItaMess. I hate clutter…

Slightly roughly made insert completed and merchandise ready to go I decided to plan out the arrangement first. After a few trials and errors I came up with an arrangement I thought would work.

This was my initial battle plan…
Which ended up failing.
I’m fairly certain I came up with at least 10 other ways to display everything. Being obsessed with symmetry is hard... T u T

After many frustrating hours later I finally finished!
I was actually going to leave it overnight and come back to it but I’m the type of person that hates leaving a project incomplete so I refused to give up. Sleep is for the weak.

It’s not as busy/full-on as some ItaBags, nor as tidy but for a first attempt I think it looks pretty cool. I’m really happy with it!
One more photo with daylight given it was around 11:30pm when I finished it and took those first two photos XD You can really see all the sparkles during the day.

All in all I had a lot of fun searching for merchandise and making my first ItaBag!
First? You mean there’s going to be more!?, I hear you say.
I most certainly do plan on making more ItaBags!
I’m hoping if enough merchandise is released of them, to do ItaBags for these two.
Cinnabar

Padparadscha

These two are my favourite characters from Houseki no Kuni and I really hope I’m able to show my love for them ItaBag style X’D ha ha~
Cinnabar seems to be getting a fair amount of merchandise but poor Padparadscha is being a bit neglected at the moment. #PrayForPadparadschaMerch
But for now that’s all folks!

Majikaru-Rin (11 months ago) #30896938I don't normally go for pairings that bicker all the time but these two have great chemistry together X'D Lawless/Licht is probably the one I primarily see but alternatively: meek Lawless could be hella cute xP

Miaeka (11 months ago) #30896217understandable, he has fangs
This is legit such a problem with pairs of characters that are just so pissed(ish) all the time xD Now that I think about it, Lawless X Licht is probably best.
Sorry I've been diverting from the blog to talk about this I'll just go lmfao

Majikaru-Rin (11 months ago) #30895953Thanks! Glad you like it. Getting a hold of a bag that looks exactly like Licht's is a Servamp collecting goal, honestly X'D
lol, I'm in the switching camp myself XD But I do primarily see Lawless as the top

laurenk418 (11 months ago) #30896009For me Cinnabar is one of those characters that makes you go "nooo my poor baby just let me hug you ;;". I feel you on Pad's hair, its so fabulously floofy/pretty, and I really like his dependable personality. I want to protect Cinnabar and I want to be protected by Pad, lol.
An extra special RIP to all those poor gems who got taken away before the start of the story whose full designs we've only seen parts of in flashbacks, who might never get screentime again, let alone merch ;_;
I mean everyone needs a Cinnabar scale to go with their Phos, right?
It probably won't happen but I'm personally praying for HNK nendoroids, even if its only Phos who gets made.
I bet a Dia nendoroid would sell very well! What I wouldn't give for a matching Dia/Bort nendo set...

Yes to all of those things xD

Right? I can't help but wonder if they'll somehow restore them when the manga nears the end or something. It'd be nice to see everyone all in one piece again T u T

That was exactly what I was thinking. I haven't ordered Phos myself but I could be tempted if a Cinnabar comes along > 3 >

HNK nendoroids would be the greatest things ever. I'd buy Phos but I'd love to see all of them be given nendo form.

Dia/Bort Nendo set would be awesome, 10/10 would def buy, lol. They all have such great potential for optional parts and expressions.

Majikaru-Rin (11 months ago) #30895990Cinnabar just struck me as a really interesting character and I'm honestly just obsessed with Padparadscha's hair and personality XD Sapphires are also my birthstone so I'm particularly fond of Pad for that reason too :D
RIP all the cute background gems who will probably never get merchandise. I'm eternally grateful Cinnabar and Pad are high up in the gem hierarchy as well.
I think there is reasonable hope for a Cinnabar scale as well. It'd be a wasted opportunity for GSC not to make one honestly.
Alas I think we'll probably get a Dia scale before Pad, maybe even before Cinnabar but who knows. If there is as S2 I will be the first to email GSC and get on their case about making a Pad scale X'D In the meantime, I'll be forever searching for Pad's GK instead.

laurenk418 (11 months ago) #30895975My fave color is red so I feel like I have a natural affinity towards them, haha. Funnily enough I'm not too fond of red beryl though?
Yeah the HNK fandom has a clear gem hierarchy in terms of popularity lol. I'm just grateful that cinnabar and pad rank fairly highly in it, and aren't background gems doomed to never get any merch like Watermelon/Sphene, etc.
I think there is reasonable hope for a Cinnabar scale considering the Antarc garage kit got picked up by GSC and Cinnabar already has a scale GK as well. If that happens, and a S2 is announced, then I'd say there is hope for a Pad scale in the future.
The chances of that happening is all wishful thinking but the hope is there :P

Majikaru-Rin (11 months ago) #30895957Ah, yay! Another Cinnabar and Padparadscha fan. I feel like I always see a heap of Antarc, Phos and Dia fans but never any of the other gems T u T
I'm hoping Padparadscha might get more merchandise now that the series is over and their "dramatic" anime reveal has been shown. I've never been so excited for a keychain to be released in my life honestly, haha~ I've got all the Padparadscha keychains/straps ordered so far. Hopefully there will be more to come!
I'm also quietly hoping GSC will do a Cinnabar scale. Though I'd sell a small piece of my soul for a Padparadscha scale X'D lol
