Inspired by (read: shamelessly ripping off) attendees at Gallifrey One, the mega-huge, mega-awesome North American Doctor Who convention, we’re encouraging people to bring ribbons to trade this year at CommuniCon.
Basically, you create a ribbon with your favorite Community quote, catch-phrase, and/or design using a site like ribbonsgalore.com/custom (just for example, not an endorsement), order a chunk, and then trade with and/or just give them away to other attendees at the convention. Since this is new for CommuniCon, I’d recommend ordering no more than 50, but it’s your money, so go nuts if you want.
A horizontally printed 2 x 3.5 in. ribbon with an adhesive strip on the top of the front side (like this one: http://www.ribbonsgalore.com/custom/flat-ribbons/custom-ribbons-flat/4/13) is the perfect size to stick on the bottom of your convention badge. When you’ve collected a bunch, it starts to look like this (my badge from Gallifrey One):
Some people use them to advertise their sites/blogs/podcasts/businesses, like a more fun business card, but most just trade or share for fun.
This certainly isn’t a requirement, but it’s a fun way to meet people, remember how many amazing lines Community has produced, and go home with extra souvenirs.
The fine folks at Galifrey One have a whole page describing the phenomenon, if you’re interested or don’t quite understand the concept. CommuniCon isn’t connected to Gallifrey at all. This is just FYI: http://www.gallifreyone.com/?page_id=290.
I try to keep CommuniCon passes as cheap as possible to cover the costs of putting on the event. However, a little extra money could help make it better, and help cover costs of merchandise, which I generally sell at the convention for less than cost, because I want people to have souvenirs without having to pay too much for them.
SO, if you are wonderful and also able to donate to the CommuniCon effort, I’ve got a few fun thank you gifts at various levels. There’s a small chance some of these may change slightly in appearance, but they will basically be as pictured.
This is mostly intended for people who aren’t able to attend CommuniCon 3, but still want to contribute and/or get some fun stuff. Of course, if you are able to attend and still want to donate, bless you and feel free!
If you want to donate, simply Paypal your donation to communicon1(at)gmail(dot)com.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU NOTE IN THE MESSAGE FIELD WHETHER YOU’D LIKE YOUR THANK YOU GIFT AND, IF SO, PLEASE PUT YOUR MAILING ADDRESS AND, IF RELEVANT, WHICH GIFT YOU’D LIKE. IF YOUR THANK YOU GIFT INCLUDES A T-SHIRT, PLEASE TELL ME WHICH COLOR AND SIZE YOU WANT. The t-shirts are American Apparel Men’s/Unisex sizes.
Donation Levels and Thank You Gifts:
$1-9 donation: My eternal gratitude
$10-$24 donation: Personalized Thank You postcard
$25-49 donation: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt (options: white or dark purple)
$50-99 donation: Thank You Gift Option 1: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt and Mug OR Thank You Gift Option 2: Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print
$100-499 donation: CommuniCon 3 T-shirt, mug AND Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print
$500+ donation: All CommuniCon 3 merchandise (t-shirt, mug, buttons), Exclusive CommuniCon 3 “Not Just a Show” Print, + an item of your choosing that we will get signed by as many show people as possible at CommuniCon + submit a question to a CommuniCon 3 panel of your choosing. [NOTE: I MAY NEED TO LIMIT THE NUMBER OF THESE $500 LEVEL THANK YOU GIFTS SO AS NOT TO INUNDATE COMMUNITY PEOPLE WITH AUTOGRAPH REQUESTS AT THE EVENT.]
If you’re outside the United States, please add $15 to these amounts to cover additional shipping costs (excluding the post card level).
A few things to keep in mind: A) There are a VERY limited number of Plus/VIP/Batman passes; B) PLEASE use Amazon Payments if you can; C) If you’re interested in an official t-shirt but don’t want or get an upper level pass, you’ll be able to pre-order a t-shirt later.
Passes will be available at communicon3.brownpapertickets.com
Hello Human Beings!
I know we’ve all been pretty bummed, so I’m very excited to announce that tickets to CommuniCon 3: Case Study in Conventional Triangulation, go on sale this Friday, May 16, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time. There are a few ticket options available, which you can review at CommuniCon3.brownpapertickets.com before they go on sale.
PLEASE NOTE: There are a limited number of Early Bird/Pre-sale General Admission Weekend Passes for $40. These will ONLY be available until they sell out, or until Sunday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific, whichever comes first. If you miss out on the Pre-Sale discounted passes, a second set of General Admission Weekend Passes will be available for $50, starting Sunday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific.
If you are able to pay via Amazon Payments, please select that option. Doing so will help me out a lot, because it will give me access to the funds before the event. I don’t get the BrownPaperTickets payments until after the event is over.
Any questions, let me know!
See you in October!
Gillian (not Jacobs, sadly)
For those who didn’t see my tweet the other day, if you have suggestions for panels or activities at the next CommuniCon, let me know! I can’t promise anything, but I definitely want to know what you want to see and do at the next one.
