Buying Mystery Bags at Youmacon 2017!! | 3 Tips for Buying Mystery Bags at Cons


I am one of those people who loves mystery bags. I do not think I have ever gotten a mystery bag where there was something in it that I did not like or I could not use. Anyway, I wanted to share with you guys what I received in two of the mystery bags that I purchased at Youmacon and I wanted to give you all some tips about buying mystery bags from merchants.

I went into Youmacon knowing I was going to buy at least one mystery bag. I bought a mystery bag at Youmacon 2016 and I received some awesome items in the bag I bought. So I figured that I had to buy another one. I looked through the Dealer's room/Artist Alley and I saw quite a few people selling mystery bags.

My first mystery bag was $35. I just chose a bag and I found a lot of great stuff inside. I received 4 items in the mystery bag.

The figure retails at $34.90 on Hot Topic.


I spent $35 on this mystery bag, but the value of what was inside the bag came out to being $63.14 altogether which is pretty awesome. I wasn't even expecting to receive a figure like that, but I got one.

I bought the 2nd $35 mystery bag from the same seller the last day of the con because I was feeling adventurous. 

Here was what was inside of it...

This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clutch purse mystery bag youmacon

This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles clutch purse with chain strap was one of the best things I received in the bag.

This clutch is worth $21.



There is also one item that is missing because I gave it to my boyfriend. I received the Dramatic Showcase for Goku, but I can't remember which one. I believe it is around $34 as well though.



For the items that I am aware of the cost... in total the items in the bag were worth $61.23 + however much the blue hat is worth. I think that's a pretty awesome buy.


Tips for Buying Mystery Bags at Cons


Tip #1 : Look at what's for sale at the booths that have mystery bags before you buy one.

I always examine what's for sale and the price ranges of items before I buy something. If a seller has a lot of smaller items and they have bags, I probably wouldn't buy a bag. Make sure to just buy from sellers who sell things that you think you might want.

Tip #2 : The more expensive bags have the best stuff...or at least the bags that are over $20.

At this con, I bought $35 mystery bags and I was pretty happy with what I received. I have seen people buy cheaper bags and not too many of them had good stuff inside them.

Tip #3 : Buy with an open mind.

It's easier said that done, but I always buy mystery bags with almost no hope. 😂😂 It's kind of like buying a lottery ticket and just being kind of like.. "If I win, I win...and if I don't, I don't." Whenever I have that attitude, I always end up with something awesome.




Overall though, I would definitely suggest going for a mystery bag if you are feeling adventurous.
