    Hmmm...designer Holgas. Just seems unholgy to me. Perhaps we need to customize the appearance of our Holgas and post the results here.

    Meh.
    Where are the gold-encrusted, jewel-covered, mink-accented, celebrity designed, fashion label branded Holgas?
    If a Holga doesn't have the mark of Gucci, has more bling than a successful pimp and costs an arm, leg and a testicle, then I'm not interested.
    Of course, the plastic lens stays...

    I custom painted my own with color shifting paint. Nothing like turning garage sale garbage into BLING!

    They're here:

    Actually I think those have been done up by Freestyle's employees. They're sitting in a glass case at their Hollywood (sorry, Holgawood) store.

    I painted mine with blue nail polish. Still have some nail polish left over so we can go out matching occasionally.

    I like the one with what appears to be a LF lens board on the front. I wonder, did they bust out the glass on the Kodak lens and put in some crappy plastic lens in its place?
