D20 Dice Bag by DiceBagChick
Hand sanitizer, aspirin, tissue… are all must-haves at any Con, but small items can get lost in a big bag. This sweet little pouch can hold all those small items and be thrown into a larger Con bag without getting lost. Positive modifier: you can still use it as a dice bag for your D & D night when the Con is over.

Star Wars Chewbacca Mini Messenger Bag
This Star Wars Chewbacca Messenger Bag is labeled mini, when in fact it’s basically the same dimensions as the regular messenger bag, just turned on it’s side. The benefit of this longer bag is that it can easily hold water bottles and books lengthwise. Plus the bandolier strap makes for an easy everyday cosplay.
