Tips To Pretty Up Your iPod

By: Jason Cox

Is your iPod a wallflower? Maybe it is time you make it stand out in the crowd. Give it some pieces of flair. Make it unique. You don`t want your iPod to look like everyone else on the block. You`ve got to be able to differentiate your personal style from someone else`s. Give your iPod a personality. All iPods look the same until their owners pretty them up. There are many ways to jazz up your little buddy and they don`t require spending lots of cash either.

You can decorate your iPod using socks. They are fun and practical and are available in a variety of colors including green, purple, blue, orange, pink, and gray. These protect your iPod from scrapes and scuffs that occur in daily life. Keep your iPod in pristine condition and don`t let it look like your watches and rings do after years of use. Change out the colors as the seasons change. Put on a red one for Valentine`s Day & Christmas and a pastel color for Easter. Get a green sock for St. Patrick`s Day and an orange one for Halloween. Or you can have one for each month.

Dress up your iPod like you would dress up your poodle in dog sweaters. The options are endless. You can even decorate the sock with your own sewing addendums, like an embroidered design, your coat of arms, buttons, ribbons, or whatever way your creative juices take you.

Young kids and teens with iPods have been sporting stickers and other adhesives to their iPods to make them cuter and cooler. How cool is an iPod without puffy, stinky stickers? Not very. Kids are looking for ways to make their iPod different from everyone else`s and distinguishable in a crowd. They are able to express their personalities when decorating their iPods. They can put their school mascot sticker on it or a sticker from the clubs they are in at school. Change out stickers on a seasonal basis depending on the holidays. Almost like personalizing their folders for class, they can make their iPod a part of their fashion statement as well.

Colorware can paint your iPod in a range of hues for $64, making it stand out in the crowd. You can also put some tattoos on your iPod. HP`s removable stickers let you temporarily personalize your `Pod. If you bought an HP-branded iPod from certain stores you get a free, preprinted musical-artist Tattoo (with a Gwen Stefani or Maroon 5 design, for example), but the company also sells printable versions in packs of ten for $15. You can download Tattoo designs from HP or create your own, and then print them at home on your ink-jet printer. Each Tattoo should last about one month before the adhesive begins to dissolve (although you can remove them anytime without leaving residual goo).

Get a Podskinz which a more sturdier plastic shell for your pod. PodSkinz are thin, hard-plastic shells that cover and protect your iPod`s front white surface and rear chrome section. Decorations range from solids to prints, flowers and state and national flags. Or get a Graphic cling, for full size iPods, to wrap around your iPod for an added feature. PopTunes are removable stickers in an assortment of prints you can wrap around your iPod mini. PopTunes for the iPod mini are priced $9 each and available in eight great designs such as leopard and heartbeats. PopTunes for the iPod nano and shuffle come in a package of 12 different designs. iPod skins are like removable stickers in popular prints like Doublemint Gum, or Shufflement, and Juicy Fruit, or Juicy Tunes.

Jazz up your iPod with jewelry, stickers or other fun craft items. Put on some beads, feathers, pearls, coral, gemstones, whatever is not glued down. What iPod wouldn`t look great bedazzled? Pull out your craft box and add glitter, confetti, scrapbook stickers, punches, calligraphy, and anything you want to personalize your Ipod in your own way! Your iPod should be a reflection of your individuality and your style. Use your creativity and imagination to dress up your iPod. You will never lose your iPod in the crowd again.
