Adventure Timmy


Timmy's ready for his next adventure. To San Diego Comic Con!

Yep, it's that time again. Attention all knitters, crocheters, stitchers, needle-and-threaders, staplers, paste-eaters, hot gluers, blacksmiths, and conjurers: WE NEED YOUR HELP! Timmy doesn't want to go plain-clothed to SDCC in late July & has put out the request for new costumes!

Four years ago, we started this project & did not expect the number of costumes Timmy would acquire (Seriously! We wish we had this many costumes ourselves!). Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the volunteers who have transformed Timmy's closet into what it is today. 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.)

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!

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

Fourth Doctor Timmy & Captain America
  • DC Comics: Batman, the Joker, Superman, Clark Kent, Harley Quinn
  • Marvel: Tony Stark, Nick Fury, Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Star Trek: Riker (w/ chair!), Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek version)
  • Minecraft Steve
  • Star Wars: Boba Fett, Jabba the Hut
  • Game of Thrones: Arya Stark, Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen (w/ dragons!), White Walker, Joffrey, Oberyn Martell, Little Finger, or Ned Stark
  • Firefly: Captain Mal, River Tam, or Zoe
  • Dexter
  • Grumpy Cat
  • Doctor Who: Clara, Rose, Donna, Martha, Cyberman, 10th Doctor, 12th Doctor, or Ood
  • LotR & the Hobbit: Thorin Oakenshield, Gandalf the Grey, Gollum, or Legolas
  • Bioshock: Big Daddy, Booker DeWitt or Elizabeth
  • Nintendo: Bowser, Timmy-size Yoshi, Death-stare Luigi
  • Master Chief
  • Mass Effect: Tali, Garrus, or Commander Shepard
  • Dean Pelton
  • April O'Neil
  • Lion-O
  • Adventure Time: Finn, Jake, BMO, Princess Bubblegum, Marceline, or Lumpy Space Princess
  • Domo
  • Doge

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.) We also have Timmy clones handy if you'd like to snag one, but 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 22th, 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 11, 2014.

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. Pssst! For the wonderful crafters who sent in costumes last year, unfortunately our costume photos were lost, so if you'd like to get an image of your Timmy costume, just let us know! :)

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!
