I am still rockin' my band but I get really annoyed with it sometimes, especially when it gets wet. but it's not going anywhere. It's probably the most expensive piece of jewelry I have so I figure I better wear it as long as I can.
Three of the people I am going with still have their Green 2008 VIP writsbands on. They placed bets last year to see who's would last the longest. This will be their first year not going VIP due to the price increase and food being seperate. I wish I would have gone last year cause my favorite color is purple. Any gueses on what this years will be?

Still wearing mine. I hardly notice it anymore. I got some paint on it last summer. Washed most of it off, but some stayed for a while. But it seems to be all gone now. It has held up really well actually. After Roo, I'm taking it off, getting a haircut and shaving before All Good, so I don't stand out as bad to the cops on the way there and back.
Getting my Rothbury tickets inspired me to finish my 08 fest bracelet. I sewed together the bands from Roo, Rothbury, and Voodoo, and put a dread bread on them to hold it together. I tucked the ends in until I can find the other bead that I have like it.
It did take me about 4-6 months to take them off though. I think it was sometime around New Year's.
hahah i didnt think about it. almost a $300 bracelet! lol.
no clue what this years color will be.. but theyde be foolish to go back to plastic bands.
I totally agree! Everyone acts as if it is just a piece of fabric or something. My friend Kelsey and I are trying to see who can keep theirs on the longest. I will be seeing her at Summercamp, but I fully intend to keep mine on until Roo this summer!

I can't recall if I posted in this thread previously? Anyway, mine actually fell off a few months after Roo and now it is tied to my key chain which is on a lanyard that I always wear. Sadly, Very few people have ever really recognized what it actually is. IDK what that says about the people that surround me but I would have expected more TBH.

I thought I was the only one still wearing it! I haven't taken mine off and surprisingly I've probably met nearly 20 people over the past year that have recognized it and started conversation! It started out as a competition between me and the 3 others I went with last year... it's down to me and one other person now!

I'm officially re-rockin the wristband. It's been on my keychain for the last few months, but I suddenly got the urge to put it back on today. It was a tight squeeze... before I was finished, my hand was almost as purple as the wristband.
I always take off my wristbands right after a fest but if I didnt I would have like 6 or 7 on by the end of the summer I always save them tho along with most of my ticket stubs, my first roo tho I kept the wristband on for a lil while.
