Every year I start over. I'm so excited because I'm planning on passing out ribbons this year.

As a complete and utter newbie to this con, may I ask what the ribbons are/what they mean/what they're for?

People hand them out -- sometimes you have to do something / find something / be someting to get them, then you stick it below your badge and some people collect quite a lot.
ie. look at the cosplayer's badge in this photo:
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3135596/
Many people collect 2 or even 3 times this number by the end of the con.

yay! I hope I get some this year.
Are you allowed to wear ones that you received last year though? I won a few on the last day and haven't got the chance to wear them...

I'm totally ready! I'm considering purchasing some to pass out myself.
I got like 4 of them last year but this year I'm making it a priority to get at least 10.

If you're thinking of making ribbons, you should order them ASAP. A good site is ribbonsgalore.com. Ribbons are not cheap though.

I wish there was some master list of ribbons and what you need to do to get them each year.

I love collecting ribbons and vow to get an early start this time. I have always wanted to make my own ribbons but I don't know how. I checked out the link to that sitre, but it's confusing. rmtakesover, would you be willing to PM me about what I'd need to know for making my own ribbons? (Inches between imprints and inches for spaces, plus how the price works) It would be super helpful

Don't forget to stop by the Info desk to get the "my first time" ribbon for both of them! If they are under 18, they are also eligible to get the Jailbait ribbon. Doing something adorkable may be able to earn you the "A;Dorkable" ribbon, and saying the magic word may also get you another.

Stop by the office and allow yourself to be modestly dusted with glitter to get the GLITTERATI ribbon.

If you are lucky enough to find Chaz, the con chair, when he is not busy, or if he finds you, you may land yourself with the SHOT BY A BEAR ribbon if he takes your picture. Related to that, someone else may be able to give you a ribbon that confirms that, "No, I don't know how fast Chaz is moving," or something else that ties into the activities of our beloved chair.

Tadao Tomomatsu, the toastmaster of the convention, usually has a few ribbons either with him or about him, including Shake-Hands Fan, Secret Asian Man, and the usually male-exclusive "I'd go Yaoi for Tadao!" Like Chaz, Tadao is extremely busy, though.

Con Suite and the Blue Rose Maid Cafe also have ribbons in stock, but these are usually in high demand and very short supply.

The Gaming room and Tabletop Gaming may have ribbons of several varieties to offer. Stick around and ask around to see who is giving out what.

Karaoke has also been known to give out ribbons in the past.

Outstanding cosplays, or cosplay elements such as props or wigs, may earn you a HALL COSPLAY AWARD ribbon.

Fairy Godfathers, identified by their sunny dispositions and the Fairy Godfather ribbons they wear, will usually have a ribbon or two on hand in exchange for some fun and games, and telling them about your ALA experience so far.

One of the workshop presenters is usually armed with questions in Japanese about your birthday or other details; answer them, and you may be able to get a ribbon as proof of your linguistic prowess.

That should be enough to get you started!
