I got my ribbons (BoGW) from pc nametag (dot) com

 

Same. But, a quick search in the engine of your choice for “convention ribbon” will pop up a lot of places you can buy.

I have an idea, but I'm not 100% sure i'm going yet...
 

"SQUEAK!" 

 

I have no intentions of sharing how to get this one - I'm sure at least one person would manage it, if I do go.

Cosplay as a 1:1 version of Sir ForScale?

 

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

 

I’ve actually considered it, but I sadly have no costuming skills whatsoever. :down:

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

 

This is the same size as the ribbons that Reaper gives out (or at least it was for the last 3 years). ^_^

Personalized ribbons sound fun!

 

Do you guys do anything to your badge to identify your forum name so some of us newbies will know who is who?

A lot of people write their forum name instead of their real name - or part of each, etc.

I think most people use their forum name.  This not only has the convenience of association if you've read a lot of their posts, it also makes it a lot easier to find somebody in the crowd if you don't know their face.  There may be a lot of Daves and Steves, but probably only one MorkalTheDestroyer or whatever.  On the off chance that two people show up with the same codename, I guess we'll have to erect a Thunderdome on the parking lot to see who keeps it.

 

Two Buglips enter, one Buglips leaves!

I like to think of them as Secret Mission Code Names.  Also, it's awkward trying to tell Con stories when you come back home and everyone keeps wondering who the hell NexusWolf and Jimbraltar are.

 

I made up all those names, but some of them are pretty good names.  ::P:

It's easier for some of us than others. ^_^

 

There's also @Pegazus's forum bingo game, which uses buttons with the forum icon of the wearer. Look him up for a bingo card (always assuming he does it again).

Would you then become "Buglip"? Or should that be "Two Buglipses enter; one Buglips leaves!"? :devil:

It's always well received, so I do plan to have it again.

I can be both singular and plural.  I'm not confined to your limited, 6-dimensional reality.

Cool, my GenCon badge name is a hybrid of my first name and my Evil avatar. Wasn't sure if you could customize the ReaperCon names or not. At Origins you are stuck with your "real" name only. 

 

Thanks for the info everyone. Hopefully I will meet some of you.

Yep, they leave space on the badge for us to put our names. Some folks also wear additional clothing or items to identification. I wear antlers (not visible on my profile picture at the moment). 

 

Mine is Deer Friend. Let's be friends on the forums! I only had a few ribbons last year since we were only able to go last minute, but I'll be sure to order more this year. ^_^

That was my next question, how to get a specific name on the badge. 

 

So, ReaperCon does not print names on the badges? You just write it on with a sharpie or something?

 

I would love to be friends! I really need to post pics of my minis so I have more posts on the forums.

Yes, there is space on the badge for you to write your name with a sharpie. I don't remember if there were any at the registration desk, but people bring their own sharpies anyway, so finding one shouldn't be too much of a chore.

From what I remember from last year there were sharpies at the registration desk when I got my badge on Wednesday. I am not sure how long that lasted though...

      This little guy is number 2 of 3 posts for now. 
      He was a lot of fun to paint up! His little spine-dies were fairly interesting to paint!

      C&C is always welcome!

      Number 3!
      Frumitty is supposed to resemble Mort from Madagascar. Also, check out his pockets, HE HAS STRAWBERRIES! How cute is that? I love that Jason Wiebe took the time to sculpt little strawberries. :D

      I just love this little guy!! I've been on a 'woodland critter' kick for a bit, and I'm so glad to have finished this guy. I'm working on a diorama for Reapercon, so that's why he doesn't appear to be based. 
      Let me know what you think! C&C is always welcome and appreciated!

      I sort of fell off the WIP thread because life made this take longer than I had originally intended. The minis are by Bombshell, and I have to say that they were a pleasure to paint. I will be picking up a few more at ReaperCon, for sure.
      The scenery is by Secret Weapon, Shadow's Edge, and Woodland Scenics. The base is from a cheap 3 pack from Michael's. All paint is from Reaper.
      I'll probably end up staining or painting the base, but I haven't yet decided which way to go with it.
      It feels really good to finish something for the MSPOpen. In hindsight, I probably should've started with something smaller, and worked my way up to this, but meh. I'm pretty proud of this.

      Hey, all! This year, I'm taking part in as many parts of ReaperCon's MSPOpen that I can while still narrowly holding on to my sanity. The first of these is a small diorama, (my first ever,) for Bombshell Miniatures.
       
      Since this is my first, I've decided to go with a relatively simple story: While venturing along an escarpment, a heavy-armored priestess is waylaid by a spinning, blade wielding half-orc. I began by cutting some foam to build up the earth behind the cliff face, and then used some plaster molds to cast the face and the large rock buried in the ground. Next, I covered everything with Vallejo's White Pumice and Wet Ground pastes, and then added additional stones. Once this was dry, I primed the whole thing in white.
       
      Once the primer was dry, I used a mix of Reaper acrylics and GW washes to paint the base. I didn't go overboard on the dirt, since most of it will be covered by grass and other detritus. For the stone, I made sure to use a healthy mix of greys, greens, oranges, browns, purples. I then lightly dry brushed the stone in sandy tan and again in tan closer to white. Once the paint was dry, I sealed the base in anticipation of the next phase.
