If there's something strange, in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Ghostbuster Timmy!
Timmy is coming.
To San Diego Comic-Con! Yes, you guessed right, it is that time again.
Calling all knitters, crocheters, stitchers, needle-and-threaders, staplers, paste-eaters, hot gluers, and bedazzlers (just kidding!) to join Timmy's Volunteer Costume Corps! Timmy has no idea what to wear to SDCC in late July and would appreciate you helping a naked monkey out. He's hoping to debut new costumes at the con!
When we started this project 3 years ago, we did not expect the number of costumes Timmy would acquire. A big thank you to all the volunteers who have turned Timmy's closet into what it is today. Words cannot adequately describe how much we appreciate your help in keeping Timmy geekily clothed all year long. (Not everyone finds a naked monkey running around in public entertaining, apparently!)
Think you've got the time and skillzzz to take Timmy's cosplay collection to the next level? Check out his costume wishlist below, take a gander at his existing collection, and sign up below to volunteer!

We welcome all your ideas and suggestions, too! (We reeeaally want a Darth Timmy, though.)
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.) We also have Timmy clones handy if you'd like to snag one, but Timmy's measurements are below for reference.
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 16th, and they'll need sometime to organize and get his bags packed. So the deadline for your costume to arrive at the HQ is July 1, 2013.
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!
