You may want to put this up on the Wicked Faire list too.
Oh damn, I'm sorry. That blows.
Are you cross posting this in the Dragoncon and Atlanta LJs?

Awww, sorry sweetie. That sucks big time. :(
Wow, that's a huge bummer. I hope you get it back.

Posted to Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks. I have many of the Atlanta Anacro crowd on my FB list, so hopefully someone will know or have seen something.

I am so sorry!
Some people just think they are entitled to things.
I so hope you get that back.
It is lovely and does deserve to be exhibited!

I posted this information on the Alternate History Track website.

Original way to track down a culprit..seems to me that the object has no value whatsoever to whoever stole it as they cannot wear it or sell it as it would be recognised. Clever, I hope you get results.
Holy crap I just heard about this from Michael Redturtle lucv_cate
and I am horrified. What can we do to help? I know how incredibly proud you were about that piece and the honor about to be bestowed on it.
I have taken the liberty of cross posting to Atlanta, Dark Atlanta, DragonCon and Frolicon LJs.
So, if someone tries to sell this piece or wear it to any local cons, they are likely going to get caught. I directed them here for more specifics.
Once all of the possible crossover communities are blanketed - I'd suggest SCA, Rennie, gamer, anime, goth, steampunk, and possibly furry and filk as well - $200 will probably sound pretty good to the ass who stole it in the first place, since it won't be sellable nor wearable anywhere.
I posted it on DA too as well as every STeampunk Group on FB and MS i could find.

That sucks, I hope you find the scumbag.

Good luck apprehending the bounder!
Good luck, and don't forget to check Ebay every day and see if someone is trying to hawk it off there - as well as the Atlanta Craigslist.
I hope you find it/get it back..

My daughter, Lydia, is informing the somewhat younger anime/steampunk part of the community via her DeviantArt journal. Her username is toastweaselofdoom if you want to see what Karl and I have spawned!
I just posted it in Cosplay.com forums and acparadise's cosplay forums
Hope you find it!

Posted, lot of ATL friends, hopefully they'll keep their eyes peeled.
People are just complete cunts :( I hope it is recovered, keep a close eye on places like ebay, goth auctions and etsy just in case it shows up on those.
Don't forget the free shop sites like Artfire, too.
Jesus that's awful D: *clings* Will keep our eyes peeled.
If I may ask, where was it stolen from? The Art Show? A Display? The exhibitors hall?>
Also have you informed DragonCon ops about the loss?
It sucks beyond suckage that you lost that piece/
Tweeted and Facebooked.
if i see anything i will let you know
I would also look into see if it gets a listing on Freecycle too.
I'm sorry that you lost the monicle at dragon con.
