Headcanon: What was once Neil's shopping bag that he innocently left on the wobbly kitchen table one day, Rick saw this as a 'finders keepers'. He scribbled out his name in black biro and actually wrote his name under 'PROPERTY OF', where Neil was supposed to write it in the first place. "IT'S MY PWOPERTY, NEEEIL! Look it's got MY name on it!" He screeched as he waved it in poor Neil's face, just so he couldn't see his own name scribbled out. Neil shuffled off and alas, the argument was settled. Rick went on to decorate his bag, mainly to show off wear around the university campus. An A for anarchy, that would help him fit right in with the sociology students. 'Mobilise for Labour democracy' and Blue Peter badges that he already wore with pride on his blazer but he thought he'd put it on there anyway. Everyone knew he liked Cliff Richard, unfortunately, so he thought he would show his love for him by writing it across the top of the bag. Lastly, he scribbled across the bottom 'HANDS OFF VYVYAN!'. That'll show him! ... This didn't stop Vyvyan from rooting around in Rick's room when he needed a bag one day. "IT WAS THE ONLY BAG I COULD FIND IN RICK'S ROOM THE HOUSE!" Vyvyan's voice echoing through the house. It may or may not have been dragged through the pipe work of the Ford Anglia, across the floor of a muddy field on his way home from the shops and definitely not used to hold several of Vyvyan's leaking 'potions'.
This gross bag was created on the intention of adding a bit of character to my Vyvyan cosplay that I'm going to be wearing to a Con soon, whilst hiding all my things I needed to carry for the day. All handmade and embroidered by me.
