These are right up FIs alley. Do you think these are just super/hot glued to a pin? I tried searching Etsy for anything similar and came up emtpy handed. What types of nerdy bouts have you seen?
Would love to think up something for them, since the whole party is in to video games

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:

Very neat! I’ll be keeping my eye open for different ways to include the nerd factor for Fiance, but I think a bout is the perfect place for it!
