Enroll in Timmy's Costume Corps!


Yep, it's that time again. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Run, don't walk to your sewing machine, knitting needles, crochet hooks, hot glue guns, bedazzlers, and the kitchen (because you're going to need a snack). Timmy needs some new threads for SDCC in July & has put out the request for costumes!

Half a decade ago, we started this project, and Timmy's personal costume closet has become a source of envy for every ThinkGeek monkey (and some fans!) Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers who have donated their time and skillz towards making Timmy the best dressed monkey ever. It's hard for us to express just how much we appreciate your help in keeping Timmy clothed all year long. (He'd run around naked if we let him have his way! Eep.)

Want to see Timmy model your genius creation? Check out his costume wish list below, take a gander at his existing collection, and sign up to volunteer!

Our most coveted costumes, with the already taken suggestions struck through:

We welcome all your ideas and suggestions, too!

If you sign up below, we'll be in touch via email to confirm your costume pick to ensure maximum costume efficiency. (Ten people working on the same costume means we'll have to choose favorites and that's no fun.) Timmy's measurements are below for reference.

Timmy's measurements

Height: 8"; Chest (all the way around): 9"; Neck (all the way around): 8"; Arm (shoulder to end of hand): 3.5"; Shoulder to wrist: 2"; Tips of fingers to fingers across shoulders: 10"; Inseam: 2"; Outseam (hip to bottom of foot): 3.5"; Head (where a hat would fit): 8"; Height (tip of head to bottom of foot): 7.5"; Tail length: 5"; Width of face across nose: 2"; Width of feet (so you can get pants on over them): 1.75"; Neck to hip (for shirts): 3". Pretty sure that's every possible measurement, but let us know if we missed one!

Your deadline, should you choose to accept it

Timmy and his entourage will leave ThinkGeek HQ on July 18th, and they'll need some time to organize and get his bags packed. So the deadline for your costume to arrive at the HQ is July 13th, 2016.

Where to ship your creations

Please address your costume to:

Timmy's Volunteer Costuming Corps, ThinkGeek

11216 Waples Mill Road, Suite 100

Fairfax, VA 22030

Where will Timmy wear your work?

All over the world! At conventions and geeky gatherings, fundraisers, and premiers. He'll debut his new costumes at SDCC this July, though. We also display all of his costumes in our conference room, and in our Timmy costume Flickr album where you'll be credited so that others may bask in the glow of your stunning artistry forever.

That's it! If you have any questions or need more details, please comment below and we'll update this post with the necessary information.

We are already so excited! Thank you, everyone!
