    What did you do to customize it? I'm going to cover mine with crystals but will leave the Mickey head alone.

    When I first decided to customize, I just wanted them to be really glittery (I'm a princess, what can I say?). I used Mod Podge and glitter and then sealed it with some more ModPodge. I loved how they turned out:

    But even though none of the glitter came off when I touched it, by the end of a few hours of wear a lot of the glitter had worn off and it ended up looking like this:

    So I got smart and changed plans, and this is my new one!

    This is after a couple days of wear and a few days snapped around my purse. Also, you can't tell in this picture, but it glows in the dark too :)

    The last one was originally blue, but I put on one coat of a plain teal nail polish and two coats of a sparkly green-blue. After that dried I added a clear glow in the dark polish just for fun.

    All in all it took me about ten or fifteen minutes.

    I don't know anything about RFID, but is there anything you shouldn't put on there that might block the signal or whatever it is?

    Love this one! Can you update us to make sure it works in the parks? I don't see why it wouldn't, but like PP said I know nothing about the technical stuff :)

    EDIT: Never mind you already answered this!!!!!!

    Definitely interested in ideas and pictures. I love the fingernail polish one.

    There's a separate thread with pictures of one done with crystals but I'm not sure what forum it's on. Do a search for "Crystals" and it should come up fairly quickly.

    Any more ideas or pictures? :coffee:

    I had the boring grey one because the one I customized didn't work when we got there. So some people have grey for that reason.

    That is funny, I didn't think too much about it...when I was customizing mine, but I wanted everyone in my family to have a different color...I saved pink for my daughter...

    I liked grey because it will match everything...right?!

    Maybe not..."band of shame it is" - funny :)

    I covered mine in crystals. See the picture the above person linked to. I don't know how to link to my previous thread.

    I did purposely pick grey because it matched everything. Also, I made a little partial tuxedo band cover sleeve for my guy friend. So when we dine out, we can be "formal" together.

    Also, if you are using crystals, most of which come in pastels, grey matches nicely with any color.
