Baby Groot and Rocket
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Andrea, the 'Baby Groot and Rocket' costume creator:
After watching Guardians of the Galaxy and seeing the last scene with dancing Baby Groot, I knew I wanted to try and recreate it for Halloween. With two hula hoops, white painter paper, and ivy from the dollar store, as well as a piece of cardboard and brown packing paper, the vision came to life and all for under $15.
The painter paper was wrapped and taped to the hula hoops, the cardboard was painted black and a piece of brown ribbon was used as a suspender for the pot. The brown packing paper was cut in strips, crinkled and taped together I could put on as a vest. Some ivy was laced through and a few sprigs for my hair and voila, Baby Groot.
My boyfriend picked up some Rocket pieces meant for children and disassembled them and the pants were made from fur-like fabric. The gun was spray-painted to match the colours.
The only downside was trying to walk between people with the hula hoop as I kept bumping into them but the cardboard served as an excellent tray to place my food on!
