Timmy's new costumes are all your fault

It gets cold on the wall.

We asked. You answered.

It astounds us every time. We ask for costumes to fulfill Timmy's need to cosplay and you send them to us. Amazing, detailed costumes by the bagful just pour into ThinkGeek HQ from June until July. It. Is. Awesome.

Every year we think we've gotten the best costumes EVAR. This year is no exception. For ease of squeeing, we've uploaded all of our pictures from the unboxing to our Flickr stream (scroll down for the 2012 batch). But we'll be sharing a few of our favorites here, too. Just because.

First: Fallout 3.

You have become addicted to Buffout

We ain't afraid of no ghosts!

Where's slimer??

So much awesome

A table full of costumed Timmys! YAY!

But wait, there's more!

If you missed watching the unboxing live, check out the video embedded below where our joy is recorded for all time (link), or take a look at our SDCC Cosplay Flickr set. Just remember to scroll down for the new costumes!

meaningless icon! I love this! I have a Feathers McGraw purse that I dress up for certain occasions and my husband thinks I'm nuts for doing it! This proves that I'm not the only weirdo out there!! MUCHO love to the folks that played dress up with Timmy!

meaningless icon! I made the killer rabbit costume that you can see in the foreground of the group shot. Not only was making the costume and writing a rambling card super-fun, but experiencing a live reveal and spontaneous squee on the video and chat feed was extremely gratifying. Thanks to ThinkGeek for the nerdy fun!
