There's a nice little game on Violette B.'s blog Fashion is my Black Religion, and it's all about bags!
I guess every girl has her favorite bag or at least there is that one bag that you can take to almost every outfit and is therefore used especially often. At least, that's the case for me ^-^
I have this one bag, that is almost disturbingly colorful and.... just crazy XD It's my bag for everyday purposes and it looks like this:
blurred D: stupid cell phone cam... but at least there's a shark in the background :DI know that there's a brand that uses that style, whereas mine is actually fake (but I don't know the name of the real brand). I bought the bag two years ago at a fair for approx 10€, and because of the price I didn't expect it to be so durable!
But until now it has served me really well :D There is just one tiny spot where the brown dye somehow blurred after it came in contact with water. But since then not even rain could harm the bag.
Of course over time I had to personalize the bag a little bit. The handle is perfectly suited for all kinds of pins and the like.
1) A limulus polyphemus pin, that we got after a presentation of a representative from Charles River (a BioTech company). They developed and endotoxin assay based on Limulus Amebocyte Lysate. They are super cute arthropods (if you don't believe me, watch this and other videos on youtube :D )! So I really had to put the limulus pin on my bag ^^
2) A fairy on a fly agaric. It was pinned to a birthday card that I got for my 20th Birthday :3
3) An anti-nuclear-power button. There is one on my backpack too.
4) Little bells that are ringing with every step I take. It's a warning for other people that I approach XD Actually, I used to wear them in my hair, but I have some on almost all bags that I regularly use.
I love that it has so many side pockets and loops on the outside, plenty of space to decorate the bag even more :D Also you may have noticed that the zipper is rainbow-colored. Awesome.
The best about that bag is the fact, that it's really huge. It's really this kind of Mary-Poppins-Bag where a lot of stuff fits in, but it doesn't look so big. I love that, because I hate to carry around a half-empty bag that looks like a starving animal craving for something to ingest. This bag looks good even if it's not crammed, but on the other hand you can fit a lot of things in there.
I have another, quite similar bag, which is somehow even more awesome because it has tiny sharks on it ♥ ♥ ♥
The only problem with that one is the brown color of the handles. I HATE the color brown, I absolutely loathe it <_< I already thought about dying the handles somehow, or probably better: Paint it? Do you have any ideas how I could dye the handle without staining the bag itself? ._.
Can you see the tiger sharks? ♥
Actually, I have two favourit bags. The one I already showed you is the one I use whenever I'm en route.
But when I have classes, I usually don't take it beacuse a notebook is too large to fit in without bending it. And my laptop does not even come close to fitting in.
So when I go to the University, I take this bag:
Pacmaaaaaan! + little bells, again.
Unfortunately I broke one of the zippers -_- This always happens to me, I'm an expert at breaking zippers o_o Maybe I use them too violently XD So I have to close the bag from front to back now, leaving a little gap open at the back side - since I really always carry my bags on the right shoulder. (Is that strange or is it normal? Do you also prefer one side where you always carry your bag?)
I got that one 2 years ago for approx. 30€ in a tiny shop at the Mariahilfer Straße in Vienna. They have all kinds of funny and also nerdy bags. I chose that one because I adore the design, but also because I thought my laptop would fit in there perfectly.
Well, it does. But then I can't close it anymore XD
Wow, I never thought I would be able to write so much just about bags. Seems I'm pretty girly... or something o.o XD
So, if you want to participate in "the game" (btw, you just lost it.) too, you just have to follow these rules:

So, I don't really want to "tag" anyone, but I would really love to read about TKindchen's, Sibel's and Kuchenfee's favorite bag - if you have one :) Of course all the others who read this are invited to participate too!
...~:★:~:★:~:★:~...Bei Violette B. hab ich ein nettes Stöckchen entdeckt, wo es um den besten Freund wahrscheinlich jeder Frau geht: die Lieblingshandtasche!
In meinem Fall sind es gleich zwei Lieblingsstücke, ohne die ich mir echt nicht zu helfen wüsste.
Die erste ist die klassische "Mary-Poppins-Bag", ein Fass ohne Boden mit scheinbar endlosen Stauraum. Zugute kommt ihr dabei auch, dass sie weder im halbleeren noch im vollgestopften Zustand schlecht aussieht :D Erstanden habe ich das gute Stück vor zwei Jahren für etwa 10€ auf dem Leopoldimarkt in Klosterneuburg.
Außerdem habe ich dann noch meine Pacman-Fakeleder Umhängetasche, die etwas größer ausfällt und die ich immer für den Unterricht nehme, da Schreibsachen, Block, Kalender und sogar der Laptop (mit etwas Mühe XD) gut reinpassen!
Was an keiner meiner Taschen fehlen darf: Glöckchen!
Wenn ich mich nähere, hört man es gleich :D
Falls ihr mitmachen wollt: Die Spielregeln findet ihr oben!
