ThinkGeek is going to Dragon*Con!

New Timmy Stickers!

Dragon Timmy is very excited!

Time to hunt down some ThinkGeek Monkeys at Dragon*Con!

We weren't going to go to to the biggest multi-fandom convention on the east coast, we really weren't. So many conventions! Our tireless monkeys, well, they were tired. "Maybe next year!" we said "We'll simply live vicariously through everyone else again this year."

Timmy was having none of that. He has too many cosplay dreams to miss even one 'con, much less Dragon*Con. Before we could blink, we had tickets in our hands, caffeine in our cups, and excitement kindling in our hearts.

As with most of the bigger 'cons, our monkeys are going to be rogue agents for most of the convention. We'll be wandering around with costumed Timmy clones, ready to give out freebies and to snap pictures of you with Timmy. However, there is a very distinct rumor that our friends at QMx are going to be there, which means that we might be found hanging out with them on occasion. This is a good, because we're going to have this little beauty on hand to show off to all of you and you being able to find us (kinda) makes it that much easier.

Once we decide exactly which panels we really want to attend (the hardest part of any 'con), we'll post a rough schedule here, so watch this space. Also, keep an eye on our Twitter stream during the convention for schedule changes, contests and other useful information. 'Cause we're just sneaky enough to spring randomness on you like that.

Are you going to Dragon*Con? More importantly, are you cosplaying? Let us know in the comments! We'll look for you!

EDIT! For easier Dragon*Con stalk..er...seeking, we present you with the two ThinkGeek Monkeys attending: Steve and Alicia.

New Timmy Stickers!

It's the monkey's fault. It's always the monkey's fault!

Bonus blurry outtake: Here.

meaningless icon! I'll be there! Most likely I'll be the 4th Doctor one day and a Mandalorian another day.

meaningless icon! I'll be there, dressed as Charlie Bradbury from Supernatural-- so not terribly recognisable, but still there! :)) When not in costume, I'll probably be sporting the AT-AT bag (named Roger) that I got from you guys at SWCVI! &#9829; Very excited!

meaningless icon! My husband and I will be there cosplaying the 11th Doctor and River Song respectively. Oh and we kind of totally built a full to scale 11th Doctor TARDIS :) She'll be moved a couple times but be on the lookout for her!

meaningless icon! I'll be there. I'll be the one with the two Borg children in tow on Saturday (because two very brave/cool parents let me make costumes for their boys).

LeslieB said this 2485 days ago.
meaningless icon! I'll be there all 4 days! I'm on staff in the Artist Alley, so you must stop by. I'll probably be at the information booth, and I'll be Twilight Sparkle on Sat and Mabel Pines on Sun. :) So glad you're coming this year!
