Has anyone decorated their Magic Bands? Please show us the pictures!

Just wondering if anyone has given their MBs a personal touch. I read where someone said they covered theirs in sworski crystals, another said they were going to use a sharpie to decorate it, but haven't seen any pictures yet. I would like to do something to mine, but I am a little nervous about it.

My MB should be arriving this week and then I am going to play. I am the one who is threatening to either take a Sharpie to it or a bottle of Adirondack Alcohol ink.

Okay, so the Slate Adirondack Ink is not dark enough, the Black Diamond Glimmer Mist just made it sparkly and I cannot find a black Sharpie with enough ink. It is now a blackish-red.

While cleaning the sink, (I got ink everywhere!) DS12 asked me if painting it will ruin the chip.

UPDATE: Went to my scrapping area and found the Jet Black Staz-On ink pad and refill. The refill worked! I used a toothpick to make sure the grooves were covered. It's kind of shiny, but I think it will take. Will post any updates.

I plan on using Sharpie Fine Tipped paint markers.
I'm going to draw an image though, so markers are best.

I drew the shape of the magic band where the colored area is, and am testing a few images. I cannot wait.

The black looks amazing. Youre going to make people so jealous!

So - I didn't decorate on my own - but I did buy a cover and slider from Disney. I bought a Minnie polka dot cover band and put her slider over it. Turned out really cute -- but the sliders are VERY hard to get over the cover band.

The cover bands were "cheap" by Disney standards - and I highly recommend those. I found the plastic band to stick to my arm too much, and adding the cover band made it alot more comfortable. I was surprised they weren't more popular - I didn't see many.

In general, I was surprised how FEW guests had even pre-ordered their MB's - alot of gray. Now - it was clear that some of those gray bands were probably coming from international places - but I do think there's population not really in tune with what is going on before they arrive. Not everyone reads DIS!

you said you bought a cover from Disney. was it while you were at WDW, or at one of the Disney stores outside the world?

I like the idea of tiger stripes (black on an orange band). Also using the yellow band to make some kind of other animal prints would be cute too.
