ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

Recommended Posts

To help alleviate the last minute rush order or trying to have them shipped to the hotel, I'm reminding people that personalized badge ribbons are a thing.

 

Because of forum rules we can't post a link to where to order them but if you post here, a certain @ub3r_n3rd fairy may PM you details.

 

The standard size that Reaper makes their ribbons is: Personalized Badge Ribbon 1-5/8"H x 3-1/2"W

 

FAQ

What are the ribbons for?!

Reaper gives out ribbons for various tasks like joining a faction, taking a class, spending a LOT of money in the Reaper Booth. Some are known, some are secret.

Individuals also have their own ribbons made and have their own criteria for earning them. 

In the past there has been a prize for longest chain (without duplicates) but this is subject to the whims of Reaper.

 

Can I make my own ribbons?

Absolutely. Anyone can have their own ribbon. Come up with fun (family appropriate) phrase and a task that you will have the receiver perform (again, family appropriate) then contact a ribbon company to have them printed.

 

How many ribbons should I bring?

If this is your first time giving out ribbons, 100 should be plenty. If you are teaching a class, running a game or a vendor, you probably want more as you will be interacting with more people.

 

Is there a list of all the Ribbons and how to get them?

Short answer, No.

Part of the fun is talking to people to learn how they got a particular ribbon. When the con starts, I'll probably update this post with a list of known ribbons. like the ones Reaper gives out or ones individuals want to share. (Please don't share the how to unless you have the OK from the creator) 

 

Not even one spoiler?

Ok, if you want to get the "Ludo, Friend" ribbon, you have to bring Ludo a small rock. (Rocks from the hotel decor will not be accepted.) Bonus points will be awarded on how fancy the rock is.

Thank You @Ludo for starting this thread.  Very Timely.

What's the upper range size limit for "small"  pretty rocks?

 

Because of forum rules we can't post a link to where to order them but if you post here, a certain @ub3r_n3rd fairy may PM you details.

 

I'm hoping the Ribbon Fairy will be contacting me.

I have an idea for a personal ribbon but am basically clueless about getting them produced.

I plan to have 2 ribbons this year:

 

STOMP of Approval - all you have to do is tell me your forum name. If you don't have one yet, sign up and show me that you did so! ^_^

SHINY!!!!! - take one of my classes! Or bring me a specific question about metallic paints (how to use them, coloring them, different brands etc.) and let me gush at you about them for a few minutes, lol.

 

Still trying to decide on colors, then I'll be ordering. :bday:

 

EDIT: I always order the 1 5/8" by 3 1/2" ribbons from the Ribbons Galore website.

 

Huzzah!

I got your rock the week or two after last year's ReaperCon. Need to mark it on why it's special with a Sharpie.

 

Planning to have two ribbons this year:

BINGO! - My normal forumite meeting bingo game

BLACKOUT - Everybody always seemed disappointed there wasn't a reward for blackout, so now there will be.

I will probably have Saved Vs. Fire again. Basically same rules as last year. If you don't know... find me Saturday at the Con and ask. :devil:

I will also have Portalite ribbons.

 

I don't know if Mr. Thorne will have any; I'll have to ask him. 

 

*suggests metallic on rainbow for SHINY! ribbons* ::D:

I'm considering making a set of ribbons for fun, but this is my first reapercon so I'm not sure what people usually do and don't want to step on any toes. 

 

Does anyone typically do some variation on "fluffy!"?

Not to my knowledge. I also think it would be kinda cool if there were 2 Fluffy ribbons with different requirements.

I still have a supply of "1:1 Scale" ribbons left over from 2017. I will make them available until I run out.

To get one, you have to let me take a picture of you with Sir ForScale, which may appear later on social media. (You can choose to keep your face out of the photo, if you like)

 

I haven't come up with anything new for 2019 yet, but I am contemplating options.

Cosplay as a 1:1 version of Sir ForScale?

 

I do like your weights and measures stuff do something with that?

      UPDATED 8/17/19
      So I will be running the Hobby Hijinx corner at ReaperCon again this year. If you are not familiar with the corner, it is where Reaper offers free 1-2 hour paint and take events. We have the classic Paint 'N Take area as always, as well as the Sophie Says, traditional Speedpaints and the new Paint by Die Roll and Bones Mashup. 
       
      I will be updating this post as details are firmed up.
       
      If anyone has any ideas for the current events or new events, please post them here. 
       
      If you would like to volunteer to help in the Hobby Hijinx corner, please send me a PM with the days and times you would like to help and if you would like to be a helper or coordinator. Coordinators will be responsible for running individual events (all the supplies will be there) Helpers will assist coordinators. I will be the default coordinator for any event that doesn't have a volunteer

      Sophie Says
      A fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. Every participant will receive a certificate declaring how awesome and silly they are. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Sophie Says After Dark
      This is slightly more adult themed version of Sophie Says, a fun cross of Simon Says and Speed Painting. Don’t let the time element scare you, this is about being silly and having fun while painting a mini. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Sophie, (or one of her minions) will intermittently apply challenges to the painters, such as painting while standing on one leg, painting polka dots somewhere on the mini, etc. Sophie understands that not everyone will be able to perform all of the challenges and encourages participants to participate as much as they feel comfortable. THIS IS A PG-13 VERSION. ADULT BEVERAGES WILL BE ALLOWED AT THE TABLES AND THINGS WILL BE MAY BE MORE AWKWARD. Speed Paint
      All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush if they wish. Once the timer starts, participants will have 45 minutes to paint the mini to the best of their abilities. Once the time is up all painting must cease. All entries will be judged by specially selected stunt judge. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. All participants will receive a certificate to attest to grit and determination. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Paint by Die Roll
      This is a group skill building event rather than a competition. Step outside your comfort zone and paint with color combinations. All supplies and the mini will be provided. Participants are allowed to bring their own brush and/or palate if they wish. All participants will receive the same mini, the group will then roll a d20 to determine which portions of the mini will be what color. Example: Last year there an ogre chieftain with Palomino gold skin, purple cloth, mint green metal, and pale lichen leather. Black, White, and Brown will be provided for shading and highlighting purposes only. Everyone will receive a certificate attesting to their willingness to try new things. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Quick Conversion
      Let your creativity flow as you cut, glue, and pin your own unique mini. Use a collection of Reaper minis and pieces to create something new. Will you come up with a goblin headed rogue, or a beholder mermaid? It’s up to you. This activity will involve cutting implements and super clue so we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult. Ed Sculpts are Best Sculpts
      When Reaper was a young company and sculptors could get first hand references for their dinosaur sculpts, now president of Reaper Miniatures, Ed Pugh, contributed to the product line by sculpting many of the skeletons. Come raise the dead and socialize with your fellow necroma.....painters. This is a kid friendly activity, but we do ask that anyone under 15 be accompanied by an adult.

      Date: Sunday, Sep 1st
      Time: 6:30 PM
      Location: Houlihans (on-site restaurant connected to the hotel) 
      Dinner menu:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/dinner/denton
      Gluten-sensitive options (not guaranteed gluten-free):   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/gluten-free/denton
      Vegetarian options:   https://www.houlihans.com/eats-and-drinks/menu/vegetarian/denton
       
      Seating is INDOORS. 
       
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       
       
       
      It occurred to me out of the blue today that I've completely forgotten to call Houlihans (the on-site hotel restaurant) to see if seating for 30-40 people could be reserved on Sunday. 
       
      I did this last year, and from all reports this arrangement was well-received and convenient for everyone. 
       
      If there are no strong objections, I plan to call tomorrow (Monday) to see if such can be arranged again. I just hope it's still possible, it's getting a bit close...
       
      Last year I made the reservation for 6:30pm. For those that went last year, was 6:30pm a good time, or would earlier have been better? My thinking last year was that it would give some time after the auction for people to do some packing first (also gives a buffer in case the auction runs super long). 
       
      Looking forward to seeing y'all SOON!
       
      Huzzah!

      While @Pegazus's Forumite bingo helps, I am TERRIBLE about remembering names. I will totally remember your face and what we did three years ago but for the life of me I can't even remember the first letter of your name. I figured I'd make a cheat sheet where people could share a photo and name so people can have a refresher before the con. 
       

       
      Prefered name: Ludo
      Pronoun of Choice: He, It, Dude
      Huggability: Absolutely
