itaSTYLE: Different Kinds of Itabag Bases


itaSTYLE


Welcome to itaSTYLE! The series where we talk about all things itabag. Last time we introduced itabags - But, what kind of itabag bases can you buy? How can you turn any bag into an itabag? We’ll discuss these topics and more in today’s exciting episode of itaSTYLE Z!

The most common type of itabag are tote itabags. Most of these bags are square, which means that they can fit a very nice display window - often one on each side. Using the shoulder strap, you can wear it on either side of your body.

Looking for something more practical? Messenger itabags have a long across-the-chest strap that allows them to worn on the front, back, left, or right. Let your message be heard with a messenger bag. Go forth!

What if you want your itabag to go… where no itabag has gone before? To the far reaches of planet Fujoshi? Ita suitcases exist. A ita suitcase is like bringing a nuclear weapon to a knife fight, and the world will be none the same. Ita suitcases tend to have a massive display window you can use to batter your foes; no bags are better suited for gratuitous acts of display. Dogs will bark at you, dictators will fear you, spies will find you - use responsibly.

Sup. We heard you like itabags. Put this itapouch inside your itabag.

In contrast, the pencil itabag is the tasteful weapon of choice. It’s a small, usually rectangular itabag with a body-width display window big enough for a few well placed charms. After you’ve deployed your ita suitcase to reduce a city to eyesore, you can use this bag to escape and thwart pursuers.

Wandering through the desert, it’s been three days since you’ve last seen a tastefully dressed person. The only thing keeping you alive is an ita backpack packed with snackies and Oi Ocha. As you eat your last Land of the Lustrous hard candy, you spot your pursuers in the distance. You flip your ita backpack to its offensive side to reveal a large window, the desert sun reflecting off the Juushimatsu deka charm blinds them. They crash into a telephone pole. You’re safe for now.

Tote inside a tote! It's totes tote-ception.

Two more days have passed. You’ve discarded your ita backpack because Juushimatsu is out, Ichimatsu is in. An Ichimatsu bag isn’t gonna make itself. You recall your training and fashion an itabag from readily available desert materials: your favorite handbag and a vinyl protector cover. Memories of Sensei’s teachings come back to you - “It’s only an Itabag if it’s covered in charms!” You bait a few traps, and you’re able to catch some Ichimatsu charms. You eat the wrapper for sustenance as you decorate. You feel some strength return to you, but it isn’t enough. Clutching your makeshift bag, you look up.

Your pursuers are upon you. They ask why you’re lying on the driveway with a wrapper in your mouth surrounded by bags. Your parents will never understand you. But we do.

What's your weapon of choice?


That concludes this article of itaSTYLE.
Stay roosted for our next issue!
