I made a bout for MIL’s husband that was a fabric tulip etc. in a rifle casing, and it was totally awesome! I am just imagining the ways this sort of DIY could work with your idea — make a fabric flower out of some funny fabric (btw, the flower was SO EASY to make!) … or getting a silk flower but then adding a little action figure guy to it (like a regular bout but with little video game dudes hanging from it) … so many possibilities!

The pics you posted are cute, and you could definitely glue them to a pin. When I made mine, I just bought a pack of those little button pin things that have a sticky foam pad on the back. Augmented with a bunch of hot glue, it worked like a charm! Not sure if that would be strong enough to hold the weight of such a large action figure, but I guess there’s only one way to find out.

Here’s what I made, just for reference:
