Timmy's Costume Corps Needs You!

Every year around this time, we come to you requesting new costumes for Timmy to wear to San Diego Comic-Con. And you, our fabulous makers and crafters and artists, turn your skillz to creating tiny outfits for our favorite monkey to wear to SDCC.

Check this out. Because of your awesomeness, Timmy now has over 200 costumes in his closet that we've been able to show off at events over the years!!1!

Costumes we're crossing our fingers for this year (strikethrough means it's been claimed):
anybody from Stranger Things (Barb, Demogorgon)
a dinosaur (T. Rex)
Black Panther
Lando Calrissian (original trilogy or Solo)
Winston, Zarya, Tracer, or Briggite from Overwatch
any of the Voltron Paladins (Lance/Blue Lion)
Rick and/or Morty
anybody from Westworld
Garrus or Commander Shepard from Mass Effect (we have a Tali)
Batman (we have Robin, Poison Ivy, and Harley, but no Bruce Wayne)

We welcome all your ideas and suggestions, too!

Not sure where to start? Need some inspiration? We're interviewing one of our past Epic Costumers each week from now through July to let them share the wisdom they've learned from making tiny monkey costumes.

New this year: ThinkGeek IRL Stores & Contest

And this year there's a new twist! The ThinkGeek IRL stores asked, "Can we get in on this, too?" And we said SURE! Each of our local stores will be holding a contest for the most epic Timmy costume. Bring yours to your local ThinkGeek IRL store by June 30th to be entered to win a $100 gift certificate and will advance to the Final Round! Not sure if you have a local store? Find your closest store here and sign up today in-person.

What's the Final Round? Well, the winner from each of the stores (and the winner from those submitted to ThinkGeek World Domination HQ) all compete against each other in a cage match for bragging rights, photographs with the Away Team at SDCC, and a $500 ThinkGeek gift card.

If you don't have a local store (or if you'd just prefer it), you can send your Timmy costume to us to compete against the others in an epic battle at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ. If you sign up below, we'll be in touch via email to confirm your costume pick to ensure maximum costume efficiency. 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

Because of the two rounds of competition this year, our deadline is a bit earlier than usual.The deadline for your costume to arrive at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ is June 30th, 2018.

Where to ship your creations

(Obviously this only applies if you're not handing your Timmy over to your local ThinkGeek IRL store.) If you're mailing it to ThinkGeek World Domination HQ, address your costume to:

Timmy's Volunteer Costume Corps, ThinkGeek
11216 Waples Mill Road, Suite 100
Fairfax, VA 22030

We would say "may the odds be ever in your favor," but you told us to never tell you the odds, so we can respect that. And here's the bit the Legal monkeys told us we had to include: /files/timmys-cosplay-contest/timmys_cosplay_contest__round1_terms_conditions.pdf
