Default How to...ribbon

I'm doing concept models for an animated short me and my siblings are planning on making. Does anyone know how to make a ribbon? It's for one of our characters "outfits". I need to make a ribbon that I can tie up into a bow-like knot. Thnx!

One way of doing it would be just to have a flat plane and just rig it as you would a character.

I don't know how hard that would be animate but that's one way of doing it.

another way is drawing a profile curve with epcurve tool create a circle and manip to shape attach as mothin path

note u will need to set some keys so that it does not distort so follow the shape along and and set thr roate where it needs so it dont distort and it should look ok

and create animation snap shot and set incremet to 1 or .5 depending on the size of ur model, loft the new circles and wola
then u can clean up and delete the unneccessary circles are u have deleted the ribbons hist
