Timmy needs costumes! Pls halp!

Please put something on this monkey.

Timmy's taking a handful of lucky ThinkGeek monkeys to San Diego Comic-Con at the end of July.

As you may know, Timmy has a few ensembles--a Jayne hat knitted by @Rumielf, a NASA flight suit donated by @NASAblueshift, his black t-shirt--but he's not ready for the extravaganza of costumery they call Comic Con.

He needs more kick-ass outfits to wear, and we're kinda hoping you'd like to pitch in to his con trousseau. We're specifically looking for costumes like:

Jedi (robe and saber), Stormtrooper, or Vader
Star trek red shirt, Tribble
Arthur Dent in his pajamas (or Zaphod?)
Zombie, Pirate, or Ninja
Killer rabbit
Beholder, Megaman, Mario, Link, Sonic, Donkey kong (including barrel), Katamari
Naruto, Domo, TRON suit, Cloud (FF7), Kratos
Portal jumpsuit (with companion cube)
Facehugger (suit, or mini one for Timmy)
Vork, Sheldon, Hurley, or Smokemonster

Here are his measurements so you can see what we're talking about, scale-wise:

Height: 8"; Chest (all the way around): 9.5"; Neck (all the way around): 8"; Arm (shoulder to end of hand): 3.5"; Inseam: 2"; Head (where a hat would fit): 8"

So if you've got mad sewing/knitting/crocheting/modding/replicator skills, and you'd like your costume to be worn by Timmy at SDCC, with credit given in our Flickr photosets, we'd like to hear from you.

UPDATE: We've gotten a slew (like, eighty) of awesome costume ideas and we've contacted or will contact all those crafty geeks very soon. So for now we're removing the submission form, but if you have a stroke of artistic evil genius, feel free to send your Timmy costumes here by July 15:

Meantime, we'll keep our eyes on the mailbox. We'll post Flickr pics as soon as they start coming in!

meaningless icon! The NASA flight suit actually came from @NASAblueshift. The helmet and SDO pin were from @NASA_SDO, but they can't take credit for Operation Tiny Monkey Flight Suit v1.0. :D I have been intrigued to find that Timmy is the same size as the 8" stuffed bears from Plushland, so I've bought some interesting costumery. I was extremely disappointed to find that their "ear of corn" bear was actually a solid bear, not a bear in a corn costume. Deciding whether to skin the bear for his delicious corn skin. o_0

meaningless icon! OK. Your Timmy measurements truly proves that my Timmy is undernourished. >_< That or my Timmy just has a really fast metabolism.

meaningless icon! Unfortunately, I have no sewing skills. I do, however have a SDCC pass and an extreme love for TG. Where are you monkeys gonna be? Should I keep a look out for anything in particular? (Other than Timmy's sweet costumes.)

meaningless icon! RaDragon, our Timmy has an adamantium skeleton, which may account for his awesomeness. Sean, we'll be around and will tweet our location over the weekend! Follow us at http://www.twitter.com/thinkgeek so we can meet up. AnikanSkywalker, YES, a ninja Timmy costume is in the works!

meaningless icon! Would it be possible to get another measurement for Timmy's head? In particular: Ear width and distance between ears (as measured from the top of Timmy's head). These are for the holes on the hood :) THANKS!
