Anime is a large and diverse genre. There are so many interesting stories and characters; it’s no wonder anime fans are passionate about their favorite shows. Here are five fun accessory ideas any fan is sure to love.
Custom pins are popular accessories. They’re small, relatively inexpensive, and an easy way to add a bit of personal flair to a bag or jacket. Pins are easy to customize so you can find a pin for almost any show, book, or character. They can also be collectibles! If you can’t buy the pin you want, you may be able to make some trades with other collectors.
Silicon cases have come a long way. Nowadays, cases aren’t just limited to 2D designs. They can be made in elaborate and colorful 3D shapes, like your favorite anime character or an important object from their storyline. And it isn’t just phone cases! Many Bluetooth earbuds – like AirPods – can have fun protective cases. Thanks to their small size, these cases often come in a wider variety of shapes.
Hoodies and shirts are a great – and classic – way to rep your favorite anime. There’s nothing better than pulling on your favorite shirt featuring your favorite characters. You can find a hoodie or shirt for just about any character or crew – and if you can’t find one, you can easily make your own!
Several companies offer easy-to-use custom T-shirt design tools online. Another option for custom designs is to shop from independent artists. They often make their own designs and sometimes take commissions! It’s never been easier to bring your design to life.
Backpacks, bags, and purses are also great accessories for people who want to show off their endless love of anime. Backpacks can have characters printed on them or even entire scenes. Backpacks are also a great place to keep your favorite pins!
People are also doing very interesting things with purses. Much like silicon cases, you can find purses and bags in all shapes and sizes. The more popular anime purses tend to be in the cutesy, 3D chibi style – you’re sure to turn heads wherever you go!
Figurines – also known in some circles as action figures – are another classic anime collectible. They come in various sizes, styles, materials, poses, and price points. Figurines on the lower end of the price spectrum tend to be smaller and made of softer plastics or composite. More expensive figurines tend to be larger and made from harder materials. Certain ones may also appreciate over time, so serious collectors can turn a respectable profit. Figurines are great for collecting, trading, or just as decoration.
Anime-themed accessories are a fun way to honor your favorite stories. Clothing, bags, cases, and collectibles like pins and figurines are just some of the most popular anime accessories and make a great gift for any fan.
