I'd normally never do something like this but I don't know what else I can do...

But have you seen this hat? If you have PLEASE CONTACT ME! I lost it while traveling home last time and I've called every place and put in lost item reports and done everything I can to try and find it, and so far I've come up empty handed. This hat is incredibly important to me, I got it at Otakon 2005 at the artist's alley, and it has a bunch of stuff on it I can't replace, since I never thought I'd be careless enough to lose it. I'm so mad at myself for letting this happen...

But I lost it at some point during my trip home, I can't place exactly when or where. It's possible I might have dropped it at the Albuquerque ABQ, San Jose SJC, or Burbank BUR airports, but I can't say for sure, which is as frustrating for me as it is for you, I'd imagine. It also might be in the Albuquerque New Mexico area in general. But if you're in any of those areas and you see a hat that looks like mine somewhere, PLEASE tell me! If it's missing the pins on the outside, you can look on the inside for two signatures addressed to Zar from Steve Purcell and Jeff Smith, so you'll know it's my hat if you see those. I know it's a long shot but I'm hoping for a miracle here...

Please, if you've seen this hat, please let me know! Please please please

Its green in color, has 2 signatures inside it, it has a bunch of pins (i saw pokemon ones) and it has a handmade doll attached to the brim.

The doll had a black pin attached to its back.

Sorry about your hat situation. A few years ago, I lost my wallet (had my school ID and 100 dollars) during a trip to San Diego. I hope you find your hat soon

I may have an idea on where the hat is. Lemme know if you get this.

zarla's avatar

Hey zar, Went to San Jose Airport and check around the lost and found. Couldn't find it, sorry. Still hope you find it!
MangleSis's avatar

oh my goodness, i'm so sorry that happened... I don't live in the area so i can't help but i can say don't lose hope!! Remember all the good times you had with your hat. Don't let the hat become a sad memory if you never find it.


I wish you the best of luck!!!!

I don’t live near there but I’ll pray that your hat will be found that Samus hair clip looked like it was hand made by someone and I understand losing something sentimental like that
zarla's avatar
It was! I got it in an art trade...
ShadeTheShadowDemon's avatar
I hope you find it and I hope if someone found it already they have a good consensus to return it

What are the pins/what do they say?
zarla's avatar
Hmm... there's pins for Louis, Rochelle, and Coach from Left 4 Dead, some Pokemon pins, a pin with coordinates for Rlyeh, some badge pins from Pokemon... a handmade Metroid logo pin...
