Exclamation What to do when your cosplay has no pockets

What do you guys carry your things in when your cosplay has no pockets?
things i mean:
phone , wallet , camera stuff like that

i'm cosplay loki and wanted to get a thor plush with a compartment but , a commissioner said . he would need to 15 inches tall [too big0-0] because , i need the pocket to be 5x5.[because of the size of my phone , wallet , camera]
Does anyone have any other suggests? That would go with my outfit thats is not to big , that i could hang on my wrist? without it being in the way. i don't know x_x i DONT carry purses not even if you paid me. Different plush shape? suggestions welcome

Depending on the costume I'll get a hidden pocket (the ones that travelers use), OR sew in a pocket using invisible threads or fabric glue, OR drop it all in my friend's bag

There are several wrist pouch available online Link

If you do have a plush, you can turn it into a bag very easily Directions

One thing I just realized you can do: go to the bag check, then hide the claim ticket in your badge. It's a small fee, but otherwise, if you don't mind running to the bag check each time you need to grab/drop off something, it's fool-proof.

If I can't sew in a pocket, I use a travel pouch that wraps around either my leg or arm.

Me personally, I have a very small hand bag that I carry with me all day that Friday and then when I enter in the contests that Saturday, I either have hidden built in pockets inside my cosplay that holds my camera, money, and phone or I leave it with a trusted family member or friend.

For the plushie, I suggest just leaving it in the hotel room until the end of the day and whatever. It'll be a hassel to carry that thing around when you're trying to take pictures or get your picture taken.

My first con I was fortunate enough to have a cosplay with a backpack (bulma-dragonball) for my rinoa I had some extra yarn and crocheted a little lined purse that blended well under the blue duster and last year for my Nami cosplay I found an old straw totebag at a yard sale and I painted the straw hat pirates logo over the existing logo. people kept asking where I bought my one piece bag. XD This year.... I'm not really sure what to do for Envy. for Tsunade I'm going to try that hidden inner pockets idea. Really clever!

If you look on Ebay, amazon, etc, there are items for discreet carry. When I travel, I keep my passport, cards etc in a pouch that straps to your calf. It's also great for cosplays that have pants or long skirts.

what kind of shoes are you wearing? At the last con I went to I just stuck my phone in my boot the whole time, I also stuck business cards that I got from photographers in there. It was really handy and when I took off my shoes a bunch of cool stuff fell out that I forgot about.

I either try to use a bag that coordinates with my costume (like a matching tote bag or a purse of the same color), or use one of those hidden travel pouches. Right now I have one that fits around my hips, which works well with skirt costumes, but if you're wearing pants then you'd probably want one that hangs around your neck or wraps around your arm.

In the past, I've usually just made bags that go with the costume. I'll typically just use extra material from the outfit construction, and design the bag to follow the look of the outfit. This year though, I'm kind of screwed. I have a con that none of my outfits have pockets, or really allow for pockets.

For my Hakuei djinn equip, I think I'm going to make a small bag that will wrap around my upper thigh, just large enough to carry my phone, IDs, cash/cards. For Fairy Asuna, same deal I think. For my Sam Manson costume, I'm hoping to have enough time to make a Fenton Thermos and use that for my stuff.
