For anyone familiar with Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, it's your explorer bag... It's a plain, sandy-tan-ish bag with a red strap and a Pokéball with wings on it.
I really want this for a cosplay I'm working on, but I can't seem to find a plain messenger bag ANYWHERE! They all have handles, outside pockets, they're very heavy canvas bags which wouldn't be fun to carry all day, or they have a design on them. Finding one without a red strap would be fine, but I can't even seem to find a plain, sandy-tan messenger bag anywhere. I was planning on stitching the Pokéball to it myself, so if it had a design (like an image, or polka dots or whatever), that would pretty much make that impossible, and I'm aiming for as realistic as possible so outside pockets and buckles just don't fit.
If you find a bag similar to what I'm looking for anywhere online, I'd be really appreciative, please and thank you =)
Maybe u could search for messenger bag tutorials online, & sew one yourself in that color? Finding a plain beige one is gonna be nearly impossible i think. :/
I love pokemon tho. lol good luck.
Could you possibly dye a white bag or even a pastel bag to the tan color?
I agree with Caitlin
The pockets on the outside are usually sewn on, and they're not necessarily firmly sewn one, because they're only holding little things. If you can find one with only one of two small pockets on the outside it should be pretty easy to cut the stitches and simply take the pockets off.
Another alternative is to make a plain bag from scratch. Messenger bags aren't difficult to make, especially if you don't want any fancy stuff. There are lots of tutorials for it, just look it up on Google or your preferred alternative. There are most likely quite a few on this site as well.
Thanks everyone for your help =) I sadly didn't have enough time to get a bag, but I'll definitely remember these next time, especially what Rainbow suggested about just snipping off small pockets. Thanks again!
