Faux snow-leopard fur coat

Post by Kim Jong Ilo » Wed Sep 04, 2013 12:23 am

I, Kim Jong Ilo (aka Ilo Kratins), the Dear Leader of the ManKrew, which is the crew builds the Burning Man effigy for the event on your behalf, have lost my coat. :( It's a particularly spectacular, hand-made coat, made for me and made for the playa, made by my sisters at no small cost. It is knee-length on me and I'm 6'3", 205#, not for everyone. It's big and obviously something unique and special.
I lost it riding from 5:30 and F to 8:45 and F on Wednesday evening. Repeated searching turned up no trace. I've placed a public post on FaceBook http://www.facebook.com/steeltoe1/posts ... 6425467173 in the hopes that the message will go viral and someone will see it who knows something about the coat. It has a large cowl hood, cuffs and pockets.

Please help me get it back.

I know this has been shared all over FB, Ilo.
Hope it makes it back to you.

Yeah... me too. :(
Pass on the FB post, please, far and wide. Someone knows about this.
The pictures don't seem to show above, so I'll try again.

I created and event: "Kim Jong Ilo says: "Find me my damn coat!"" on FB. It's a public event. Invite yourself, invite your friends. This coat is not a ground score, nay nay.

LOST: Burning Man effigy-builder's Special Playa Coat

Post by Kim Jong Ilo » Sat Sep 07, 2013 12:03 pm

Please spread the word on this one. This coat is sooooo not a ground-score. I really want it back. Faux snow-leopard, very large with hood, pockets, and turn-back cuffs. I can't seem to post a picture here. Please "join" my FB event "Kim Jong Ilo says: "Find me my damn coat!" ", invite your friends and ask them to do the same. It was lost along False Idol on Wednesday night, so bonus points for knowing someone camped along F between 5:30 and 8:45. I've got some goodies for those responsible for me getting it back.

You don't need to post the same thing over and over. If people are looking to return your coat, one thread is enough. I don't know what the "bumping" rate is on lost items, but in other cases it's once a week.

Oi, I feel for you! I have a similar-ish coat in faux cheetah with a faux-leopard lining that is gorgeous, warm, and ever-so-nice-to-stroke.
