Ladies and Gentlemen....
May I present
Ah, Finally. I've gotten around to posting a couple pictures of my beloved creation. I was first introduced to Silly Bandz by Natalie Merchant. She pulled a young boy fan on stage to read a limerick and they were also talking about Silly Bandz since he had given her a package of them. Then I saw them in stores and saw that they were $4.99- now this wasn't a trend I was looking to get into, but I did want to create something with it. I was going to need about 10 packs of these and wasn't really looking to spend $50. So I waited. & waited. & waited. Then one day I strolled into Hot Rags and saw they were selling them for 99cents a pack! So here was my chance; I snagged 10 packs, went home, dug around for a chain to throw these suckers on, and now have a silly bandz necklace that reminds me of coloured electricity on a string.
At first I thought this trend was exceptionally stupid, but now it totally makes sense. Whenever I wear it I hope a giddy 8 year old comes up to me hoping to trade a few. The necklace itself is HEAVY. I definitely know how Flavor Flav feels when he sports his clock now.
The resemblance is uncanny.
