I have a bunch (bought an old home, so I visit Home Depot a lot). Are they used by DISers in DLR? I'll do something with them if so, but otherwise, they will be held over for my next WDW trip.

I made double-sided tags out of mine. I put two back-to-back and stuck them together, wrote my username across both sides, then laminated the whole thing and punched a hole in one corner. I have one tag tied to my backpack, and one on the stroller. :)

I was rushed at the time, and now wish I'd removed the LGMHPC from the card backing and put it on a darker color. I don't think they're as noticeable as they could be.

Good point. I have had mine on my purse, but then this trip I realized...I don't walk around staring at peoples' purses, why would others do so?

So now I'm considering getting face paint and putting a LGMH on my cheek when next I go. :rotfl:

Home Depot is around the corner and down the street from me. It is almost my most favorite store!! I was there the other day with DH and walked by the paint dept. and picked up my lime green mickey heads! :lmao: My husband thought it was hilarious when I told him what they were for. I like the suggestion of putting them on something darker and laminating them. I think I'll put one on the stroller and the camera bag for when we go in March. YEAH, Can't wait!:rotfl:

I couldn't hold back the giggles if I saw someone w/ a LGMH on their face!:rotfl: Then I'd come say "hi"

Princesskell - It's just a way so we can see who are Disers around the parks. I think lime green is like the Disboard's colour...

Oh why, oh why can't we have those in Australia! I need some good luggage tags to make everything stand out. That would be sooooo cool. I will have to find a Home Depot when we are there so I can get some for next time!

Clever, very very clever! I will have to look for some next time we hit HD!

I had one made by a fellow DIS-er and lost it. I made one for my last summer trip and it's on my backpack. It has my user name on it and a mickey sticker on the back. I have yet to get a hello from any DISers.

I found another paint brand also has the same color so I cut a few of my own heads when HD ran out of Mickey's.

I have them tied in my hair falls, but so far no one has found me from the boards. I have looked at WDW and DLR and so far not a Diser to be found.

For the record, the actual color of the "lime green mickey heads" is Alien Green. :) It's Behr/Disney paint.


I think it's a really good idea to use other samples and cut out shapes, though!

I used to have the LGMH's in my lanyard pouch, but at the parks I found little LG Mickey Head keychains!!!! So I grabbed one of those and use it on my lanyard next to my pouch. I always look for the LGMH's but I have never seen one!!!! Last weekend I knew there were a bunch of us and I was searching all over....but didn't see 1!! :(

I don't have a laminator, what's the best way to fake laminate it to protect it?

Alex2kMommy
01-31-2008, 12:43 PM
For those in the crowd who do papercrafts (scrapbooking, card making, etc.), did you know there's a gigantic Mickey Head punch? It's about the size of the LGMHPC, so I've decided to give up my life of crime and make my own LGMHs. The guilt was just too much for me. :angel: :rotfl:

PrincessKell

You can buy self-laminating products at an office supply store. I think people use them for laminating photos for a wallet or maybe business cards or something, but they come in a small package and are large enough to cover the whole thing.

But I wanted real laminating, so I went to Kinkos. I think it cost around $1, which might actually be cheaper than the do-it-yourself product. :confused3

mindylovesmickey
01-31-2008, 12:49 PM
I live in the middle of no where, so I don't have a Kinko's but the office supply place has a laminator, I'll check out both ways. TAB

I think so! I did a google search, because I was thinking it was one of those "Whale of a punch" ones. Sure enough, there was a Mickey Head one on ebay. :)

I got the Mickey head punch a while ago. I plan on making Mickey head flags for my Epcot pages.

For laminating, If you have any of the Xyron machines (250-500? or larger) you can get a laminating insert for it. That is what I used for my last trip!

Mine haven't been noticed (my face has, though!) but I haven't needed to laminate them. I did punch holes in them, then I used double-sided tape from Creative Memories to put two LGMHs together, then did the same with two yellow ones (there was discussion on ***************' forum that we should show our colors, too, LOL) and then strung them on the plastic luggage tag loopy thing, and that's what is hanging from my purse straps.

But as I said, I don't go around looking at people's hip levels, so why would I expect others to?

Oh waitta minute, they were noticed, by a couple that used to post on the Dis but don't anymore. Can't remember their names, but they DID notice it. :)

You guys are so fancy I just used packing tape. I ran ribbon through two heads, applyed the tape on both sides past the design and then cut close to the designs.

Cheap and easy!!!

I wore mine in hair falls very much like these to WDW and DLR

Instead of laminating you could always use clear contact paper...Just an idea. Then it would be safe on water rides and in the rain.

I made a luggage tag for my MIL and I have a tag for our backpack with my user name. Last Spring Break we had a fellow DISer talk to us in DCA. It was cool just to say "hi". Don't give up on finding another DISer. Maybe we could start a thread about who can find the LGMs. (Sorry Albort! :lmao: )

BELLEDOZER
02-05-2008, 08:57 PM
I think that is a great idea!! I'd say the odds of finding a DISer are alot higher than trying to find Albort...Sorry Albort! At least you get to encounter some of the great people who are on this chatroom. I'll definitely be looking for LGM's when I go there in Feb/09. It's something fun you can do while that you are there that makes the trip enjoyable.:thumbsup2

I got my Alien Green mickey heads laminated and put my username on them. It's attached to my baggalini, so maybe I'll get spotted that way! Although I'm not sure if I want someone coming up behind me and starting to talk to me, might freak me out! lmao!

I've been walking around with a pocketful of LGMPCHs for days, lol. Our HD has no shortage, but there probably aren't a ton of DISers around here....

mindylovesmickey
02-05-2008, 09:50 PM
Lol, I did the same thing for several weeks until someone said they had laminated theirs. So, that's what I did, and I made it into a key chain.

Molly: maybe the face painting should be something we do for Ladies Only trip--we could make a stencil and it should be pretty easy to do it with that?

02-05-2008, 09:56 PM
I put together a couple of LGMH with our usernames (CupidsKiss and Got_Ron), laminated and tied ribbons to attach to satchel. Watch for us next week!::yes::

Can anyone explain why it is that when I'm at home, I have a hard time logging in, and when I open threads to read sometimes only one or two posts show instead of one or two pages, and I can't see some of my own posts like they're not here at all? I'm mostly confused because it works just fine at work :lmao:

In October, I made a LGMH out of lime green cardstock, put my DIS name on it, laminated it and wore it on my lanyard. While I was waiting in line for Peter Pan, a fellow DISer noticed it. She was a moderator for the Community Board. Unfortunately, nobody else noticed it the rest of the time we were there. I can't wait to wear it again in WDW in March and see if anybody notices it.

It was Friday Dec. 21st. It was our last day there, and we had a bit of a rough morning, my husband in the ER for his ear infection. I took the kids to the park by myself, and we missed our "Discover the Magic Tour", so I had cried in frustration and the nice CM spent some time talking with my boys and telling them about the real magic, etc. In the end, he gave us "special parade viewing" at the train station for the 3:00 parade. By then my husband had joined us, and we were sitting on the bench waiting for the parade. Some folks came up and asked us how we had gotten to sit there, and of course, I replied, "Well, you just have a really bad day, and then wa la, you have special parade seats." My hubby was all embarrassed, which I further compounded by taking a picture of him and the boys sitting in our special spots. A bit later, I saw that those folks had gotten permission for their "elder" half of the party to sit on the benches by us. The rest of the party stood close by watching the parade from the platform while standing. I was looking over there, and noticed the lime green mickey's on her backpack.

So I would have had to work my way through the crowd, and further embarrassed my hubby, so I let it go. But it was fun to spot one!

So if that was you, and you are reading this message...Hello fello Dis'er!

So before I found out that lime green was the DISboard way of finding other DISers I took one of the designs a DISboard designer made and tweaked it for a tshirt. I am putting it below... Man those DISboard designers are awesome! Some are completely in the wrong professions!

I have yet to get a hello from any DISers.

That's one plus for the (DCL) cruise...quite a few DCL cruisers are DISers, do "Fish Extender" exchanges, subscribe to cruise meet threads (we had about 20-30 DIS families on our last cruise), etc. I'll see if I can spot any DISers at DLR this September.

I've never actually seen a Home Depot LGM head, I always forget to check whenever I go. Is it a free sample, like those color chart cards?

I make vinyl decals and recently bought a roll of Lime Green vinyl, which of course works for making LGM heads. Just to warn everyone I plan to offer a small lot of heads on eBay soon, so if anyone see's the listing it's me. Not trying to take advantage of things, I'm doing it for those who either do not have heads in their area, don't have access to them, or aren't sure what do with them :confused3 , and need a little creative help :artist:.

I've done this on every trip for the past several years (probably 6 DL trips and 2 WDW ones) and I've never had anyone notice! (that I've known of) :confused3 I have had SCHEDULED meets with people, however! :love:

Yeah, we've had our APs for almost a year now and have been going to DLR at least twice a month. I've only been spotted once and then I spotted one not too long ago but that's it. I keep seeing the confetti on the ground from the street party and thinking "Oh, there's a LGMH!"

Here is a thread with some pictures of them http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1361961&highlight=lim+green

I also think that thin foam type stuff would work good as well, it is easy to write on, and wouldn't have to be laminated, it's also waterproof. I saw sheets of it at Michael's when I was there, so I might stop by and see if they still have it.
