Winter Is Coming!

Woops! What I meant to say is that the time for ordering ribbons is closing soon!, along with pre-registration.

Don’t forget to order your ribbons and pre-register! Ribbon ordering is open through December 20th, and pre-registration is open through December 31st!

What are Ribbons you say?

Well, I’m darn glad you asked:

Some say it was way back in the time of the S.M.O.F.s, the cabal that ran The World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon), the organizers put ribbons on their badges that denoted positions such as “Guest of Honor”, “Con Chair”, “Ops Head”, “Artists”, and “Dealers” and more.

WorldCon attendees took notice and with great glee started making their own, inane, crazed badge ribbons to share with fellow fans.

Soon there were quotes from favorite books, movies & tv shows. Puns & Memes from the darkest parts of the internet. Basically, anything.

That being said, Ribbons are now used by authors, dealers, artists for promotion or just fun, congoers to perpetuate a fannish atmosphere of fun, randomness, and ways to honor favorite authors, books, comics, movies, shows and whatever else they can think of.

Have you ordered your ribbons yet!
