No, those are their personal ribbons.  You'll need to track them down to get them.  There will be many Steamcon ribbons available.  the first one will be in your membership packet when you register.  Others will be available for volunteering at the con or from other folks.  You can even receive a special ribbon from the merchandise booth once you gather 15 other ribbons from anyone. 

Let the ribbon hunt begin!

An Excel version of the schedule, just like last year. Some people seemed to like it. :)

I'm here with my ladyfriend. Sadly reallife got in the way of our costuming for this year. I completely forgot to check BG before going. Been hunting for the Brass Goggles ribbon.

Col.,
Vela and I have been giving out ribbons all weekend.  If you are going to the "Ironclads of the Civil War" discussion at 11am in Grandballroom J, I will be there.  You can't miss me, I am a 6'5" mean looking S.O.B.  ;D

 Just got home and despite being the shyest person on the face of the planet, still had a lot of fun. Sold several items in the art show. *Yay!* And got a ton of new costuming and prop ideas.

 Now to sit back and wait for people top start dumping their photos online.

 Looking forward to next year!

A huge thanks to everyone who made it Steamcon fabulous this year: especially K.W. Jeter who is simply a splendid guest and his better half Geri, who was excellent company.   Gary Gianni and his wonderful art and stories.  Vagabond Opera who won over tons of new fans.  Unwoman who is always as gorgeous as she is talented.  The Clockwork Dolls who are smashingly entertaining and gave me a bear.  :)

Also huge thanks to all my staff and our army of invaluable volunteers!

I hope to see everyone back next year for a truly steampunk Halloween party!
