Ribbonthulhu: The Con Funk Awareness Ribbon Cthulhu fUNK-tagn

Ribbonthulhu: The Con Funk Awareness Ribbon

Cthulhu fUNK-tagn

 

        While at Gencon 2005 I met a lady at the Visionary Entertainment Studios booth named Erica (the red haired elf lady). The topic of discussion was "Con Funk", that unholy phenomenon caused by gamers, fanboys and other convention attendees who decide to gather in crowds and skip showering and the use of deodorant for four days. I thought there should be an awareness ribbon for Con Funk it so I made one. I though Cthulhu was such a recognizable icon amongst gamers and sci-fi fans that he would be the perfect spokes deity for the campaign.  I present to you the first prototype of Ribbonthulhu.

        As you can see he's easy to make. You just need green ribbon, some sort of plastic eyes, glue and a pair of scissors.   An iron might also help to iron the ribbon into shape, especially if you decide to have the tentacles going different directions. I suppose pressing it in a heavy book would also work well. You should be able to find some sort of fastener to affix it to you clothing at a local hobby or fabric store.

        If you decide to wear one, send me a pic.
