I finally took the jump and developed a roll of film from my Holga. It may not seem like a big deal... but I've had this camera for nearly two years! What took me so long?
I looked at the first roll as sort of an experiment - not using any tape on the camera to figure out what the natural light leaks looked like. And, because of a minor mishap when removing the roll from the camera, the light leaks are plentiful towards the end of the roll. Either way, I love the pictures that developed...

My favorite picture from the roll... of my family. From L to R you've got Tom, my Dad, my sister & mom and then my granddad, making a ridiculous moose impression. The best part was, I didn't realize he had did that until I got the negatives. For that picture alone, I immediately ordered digital scans.
This one is probably the leakiest of all the photos I've shared... you can even see the "Kodak" print from the film itself. Nevertheless, I love this picture!
I can't wait to experiment further with Holga-hacks. Have you ever played around with a Holga? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
