Some of you may have heard, I had a piece stolen from me at Dragon Con. Not just some ordinary piece but a one of a kind Monicle that was to be in  featured in a Steampunk Exhibit at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford this October.

I'm will pay $200.00 for it's safe return on a "no questions asked" basis.
I will pay $500.00 if it leads to the arrest of the one who stole it.

Remember, it is a one of a kind piece. There will never be another. If you see someone wearing it they are definately connected to the theft and a felony.

I will also produce a custom piece for anyone who gets the theif arrested. Have you been looking at one of those arms thinking $1499.00 is beyond your reach? You Get me this person and I'll make one just for you.

You should also post this to dragoncon and dragon_costumes. Wide base of attendees that might have info for you.

What an utterly dickish move. Don't these people realize they're stealing from family? Great good luck getting it back soon and intact.

Posted the info on my own journal, I've got a few folks there who were at D*con (including at least one staff member) who may have seen or heard soemthing. Good luck!

I've posted the info and pics to a couple Steampunk Facebook groups for you.

I hope someone spots this incredible piece of work and beats the holy hell out of the thief whilst dragging him to the nearest police station.

How horrid! People theses days...
I definitely hope you get it back.

Adding to the well wishes above, but please don't assume that If you see someone wearing it they are definately connected to the theft and a felony. Perhaps they bought it unknowingly from the thief. I'm just saying, before anyone beats wearer to a bloody pulp, don't dismiss the idea that it was stolen by someone who wanted to re-sell it. In fact, profit is a more likely motive than admiration to steal a work like this. At least, I'd like to think that anyone who truly admired this would be a better person than a thief. But I suppose at this point, it could have ended up anywhere. Sorry.

i think this makes my point clearer than how i was trying to make it :)

Posted to my Facebook page and linked on a couple of steamy communities. I hope you get the bastard.

I hope you find your piece, I'll pray that you do. =3

Dude, that stinks. This would be why I hate people.

I'm going to pass this on to the tribes I'm on. Hopefully someone over there will find something or come forward.

I am posting this to my personal journal to see if anyone on my f-list who went to D*Con saw anything.

Best of luck to you! I hope you find the piece and the loser who took them!

Best keep an eye on eBay for this thing too... Once the thief get's wind of the bounty on his head, he'll likely try to get rid of it pretty quickly. I hope it turns up without a fight though, it's a shame someone took it at all. :(

I saw in one of the other comments that you might have lent it to someone during a photoshoot? If so, you might want to add that to your main post for the sake of the innocent if said photos turn up online.

Good luck to you!

Hey can anyone email me links to Dragoncon 2009 photos. I have a lot of time on my hands (sad I know). So sitting in front of the computer scanning thousands of photos actually sounds fun to me. I really want to help so if you have any links to online photo galleries send the links to sp4c3gh05t@yahoo.com.
Sep. 21st, 2009 09:45 pm (UTC)
Let me narrow down what picture links i need. Shots of individuals are okay but would help is group shots, shots of crowds and so forth.

My heart goes out with you on this piece. I hope it comes back to you! Again, it was nice working with you at SDCC and seeing you if only briefly as D*Con. Good luck, and until next year!

Is there any sort of update? Has the piece been found?
