I might be giving out ribbons at my AA booth- depends on if I can afford the printing fees or not.

Invisible? Do you mean the black one with nothing on it (sometimes referred to as the "ninja" ribbon), the pure white one, transparent one, or something else?

If I recall correctly, it's someone in Artist Alley that's been handing it out in years past, but I'd be a bit cautious as I remember some people having trouble with the adhesive on it not being sticky enough.

Last year was my first time at ALA and the ribbons were so fun to collect, even though I got a late start since I didn't understand. xD I got 9 total and I'm hoping to get more this time!

I'll also be handing out ribbons. I have 2.

Ribbon #1

If you're cosplaying from Avatar/Korra or are wearing Avatar/Korra memorabilia you will get this ribbon. If not, you must answer Avatar trivia questions.

Ribbon #2

Guess any of my OTPs and you will get this ribbon.

RIBBON CON!

I've got a Q about ribbons. Okay so, people with long chains on their badges.. do they put all their ribbons on their oldest badge? Or after each year they take all their ribbons off their older ones and move them every year to their newest badge? I have a lot of ribbons but I'm not sure which badge people put them on ^^

i'm ready for the ribbons. i'm gonna be on a hunt for them on day 1. there's one you can get on day 0 i believe. some ribbons are day specifics from what i remember and some panels have some as well. from what i recall there's a few in the dealers hall as well. i remember one being in the elevators and the others being rather diverse.

I collect a new batch of ribbons every year - the ribbons I earned last year stay on last year's badge because they're all connected to a memory of that con.

I've found that the easiest way to collect ribbons is to bring your own, because people are almost always willing to trade even if you don't fit whatever requirement they have set for their ribbons. Otherwise, just keep your ears open, be polite (as someone else said, ribbons aren't cheap, so a "please" goes a long way with people who bought them), and if nothing else you can ask other congoers where/how they got a particular ribbon. It's a good way to meet new people and socialize.

I'll have ribbons I'll be giving out for Sailor Moon trivia again this year, but be warned a lot of the questions are not easy. And anyone who comes to my Sera Myu panel on Friday night stands a good chance of getting a special ribbon there.
