I sympathize with the OP. However, the accolade is gone and there will not be another chance to get it. That's exactly how it should be.
There was many ways to find it. I personally found out about it later because there was always someone asking what's happening that day and somebody always answering.
Point being though, it was really more the fact you wanted to get changed into all these crazy monsters. It was just a fun thing to do. I only found it because I wanted to change into every type of creature.
