One of my all-time favorite sources for geeky goods is ThinkGeek, and their trusty monkey mascot, Timmy, is in need of some crafty assistance.
Timmy has been re-arranging the costumes in his cosplay trunk. We know what this means. San Diego Comic-Con is coming and we need stitchers, knitters, crochet hookers, hot gluers, haberdashers, and crafty-makers for Timmy’s Volunteer Costume Corps!
We started this project two years ago and we still cannot adequately thank the volunteers that have made Timmy’s current extensive collection possible. Each and every costume we’ve received has elicited squees of delight (video proof of the squees) and they’ve served us extremely well over the years. With your costumes, Timmy has traveled the world as an ambassador of geekery. He’s met the shiniest people and probably flung poo in places that we will never see with our own eyes.
Do you have the time and skillz to take Timmy’s cosplay collection from the trunk to the wardrobe? Scroll down for our costume wish list, take a look at his existing collection on Flickr, and sign up below to volunteer!
Be sure to check out some of the amazing costumes that have been made in the past, including the Tauntan/Luke Snowuit one pictured above (made by Mara Saxer).I can’t wait to see what Timmy will be wearing next!
