Brute Force Studios had a one-of-a-kind eyepiece stolen on Saturday afternoon at DragonCon. The following is cut and pasted from his own posting:
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 Monacle that was to be in featured in a Steampunk Exhibit at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford this October.
I 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 definitely connected to the theft and a felony.
I will also produce a custom piece for anyone who gets the thief 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.
If you have any pics from DragonCon 2009, or if you find yourself scouring through pics of DragonCon 2009, and you see this piece, please contact Thomas at www.bruteforceleather.com
