ReaperCon 2019 Ribbons

Recommended Posts

Hmm. So one of the things I do when not painting is umpire little league games.  I will have to earn that ribbon....

I discovered something frustrating. No matter the cost of making ribbons, shipping them to Canada, even within Canada, is expensive.

 

Very few carriers can reach my remote address, so shipping is as expensive, if not *more* expensive than the cost of making the ribbons ($75 S/H for ~100 ribbons?! :grr:)

 

Fortunately, I found that if I ship to my mother's place (who lives near a major city), it's far less expensive, but nothing compared to the rates my US buddies can get.

 

[P.S. I'm still getting them. :B):]

 

If you haven't ordered them yet, you can always get them shipped to me & I'll make sure they even get to your room. :poke:

Er.... not really soonish. We're still more than two months away. Expect the sign up thread about 8/1, and closing around the 15th. I've got my card generating technique down, but I still need time just to collect forum icons, get the cards printed, cut, etc. And buttons again if I manage that little extra from last time.

I still have my button.

It's on the charcoal color skullcap I wear right next to the Reaper pin that @ladystormwas kind enough to give me.

You see a green ribbon with Take This in yellow, what do you do?

Is there an old man in a red robe nearby? If so, I would imagine that it is only customary that you take it and hold it above your head as a mysterious jingle plays (da-da-da-daaaaaa).

@Cranky Dog I'd be happy to assist you with the ribbons if needed.

 

My idea for handing out ribbons require some effort and a secondary part that I'm questioning. Hmm...

So as a newbie I have two ideas,

 

idea one, “We all stared some where” show me a picture of your first mini

 

idea two, “I did a thing” show me a mini you started at the con

 

As a long time con goer but new to the ribbon gig are theses unrealistic?

I could see the second one being a little easier to get than the first one. I don't have a picture of my first mini on my phone, and wouldn't if I hadn't read this here. I'd hazard a guess that a lot of other people are the same way.

That said, they are both neat ideas.

Thanks that's why I was asking what if I made it show your earliest mini you have a picture of?

That would probably work out better.

Keep in mind that you might end up needing a LOT of ribbons, especially if you do both ideas.

Our ribbons came today!!!

 

Sadly, we ordered the wrong size... 3 by 1 5/8ths. So they are special. Lol 

 

Oh well, @Echoside_ and I still will take them and hand them out. 

 

I think we are just doing it as stop by and say hi to either of us to get a ribbon. 

 

I will update if he thinks of something more creative. 

 

Cheers!

I ordered the wrong size the first time I ordered as well. After 3-4 years I have finally ran out of the improper size. Don't worry about it.

      I'd asked after last year's Reapercon who to contact about volunteering. Initially it was Lady Storm but when she retired it changed and I think it was @ReaperAHawk that became the new point of contact. 
      Who, what and where do I need to send a request to help at Reapercon?
       
      Posted here in case others were wondering the same.

      This is just straight up sad from every angle.
       
      The reason it gets my attention is that many of us have visited this location. This happened on the parking lot attached to the venue ReaperCon used two years running.
       
      It may have spilled out of a high-school party held in that same event Center. (That tidbit was in the TV news this evening.)
       
       
      (Btw, The URL title/headline was not as accurate as it could have been but I guess that is an artifact of early less than accurate reporting. Woman is not so accurate: Amya Alane Batie was just 16.)

      Yay! This is my second diorama I'm finishing up for reapercon! This will be for the diorama category. I hope y'all like it! I'm probably going to add a plaque to the plinth...it look pretty naked... 
      It's titled "Avenge the Fallen" 
      I'm always up for c&c.

      Hope they make y'all smile.

      He's done! He was the last one, so glad to have them finished up! 

      Let me know what y'all think!

      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!
