Here's something to consider:
http://www.hokeyspokes.com/
They're sold by "Serious Juggling," ( http://www.seriousjuggling.com/unicycle-parts.htm ) so I guess they work for unicycles.
Certainly grabs the attention! (But not exactly subtle.)

Here's a pic of my rim:

I see now that you don't have a drilled rim. I wasted your time.

It's 100% polyester, I slog through mud and deep water all the time and it doesn't stain the colors.

That is a very cool look. And very creative to think of using blanket binding as a rim strip!

That's nice looking!

I'm vaguely interested to see these titanium rainbow spokes though. Not gonna use them, but I wanna see what all the fuss is about!

How did you attach it end-to-end once you cut it to size and wrapped it inside your wheel? Did you just overlap it and tape it down?

Yes, that's exactly what I did. I overlapped it by a few inches. The hardest thing about the whole process was punching a hole through it long enough for the tube stem.
