I'm going with the yellow band with purple stripes (LSU Tiger) If I get creative enough, possibly a tiger eye somewhere on it.

WDW giftshops sell covers. Some are sold singly, others in threes. Alas the one I want is sold in a set of 3 and I don't like the other 2. And neither do DH or DS. But they liked two from a set of 3 Star Wars themed covers, so now I have a Star Wars cover. The covers are almost like a bathing suit fabric (female's bathing suit), really slippy on your skin.

There are tips and tricks on "blinging out" the MB in passporter's info articles, and here is a link on how to MAKE a coverband. Kinda neat!

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.

Funny, my son thinks it is "classic grey" and insisted on that color. Our friend got a grey on upon check-in and refers to it as "the grey band of shame". So many names for one color!

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?
