If Domo's going to wear a dress, he'd want something with some slink.
We weren't sure what to do about Timmy's clothing for Comic-Con at the end of July. He just couldn't go in his normal t-shirt. We're talking Comic-Con here, people.
So we created a little Google form and innocently tweeted a request for costume submissions. A few hours later, 80 crafty geeks had signed up to contribute to his wardrobe. And then we shut the form down because Timmy didn't want to have to check a bag.
A few costumes have come in early--greeted by much squeeing and excitement--and we couldn't keep them to ourselves. Below is a slideshow of Timmy's growing trousseau:
Want to see these costumes on a Timmy? Stay tuned. We'll post photos of costumes as they arrive, and maybe Timmy will do more modeling later.
Meanwhile, we have to share some close-ups of the outfits by @nonnymouse_ (aka Laurie): Jedi with saber and (zomg is this really happening) Kaylee's foofaraw ball gown as seen above in the shop window. And no, Wash, you may not borrow any money to purchase Domo a dress.
Yes, Timmy's gonna try crossdressing. What happens at Comic-Con... gets tweeted and Flickred? Ah well.
Sewing nerds, gaze ye upon Laurie's hems, gathers, pleating, linings, tucks, tapes, and handmade tassels!
