This homemade costume for adults entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Patty, the 'Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy' costume creator:
This groot was made from shaping foam into different size pieces to fit together like a puzzle. I started with a body pajamas on backwards with zipper in the back, I painted it with camo paint. Then I had my son in law wear the body suit as I glued the pieces in the right places. spray glue penetrates the fabric so for some time, he was stuck inside it for a while. Glued in. He wore 2.5 ft drywall stilts covered with foam shaped and rolled like tree roots his mask was made from foam that I had formed around a coffee can for shape. the mouth did actually moved well. I used some dark spray ]paint to give depth, and covered over that with latex paint for detail. we wwatched the movie and fell in love with Groot. As did everyone that saw him. they would holler his name out across the room and Groot would smile and wave. Kids loved him, but the grown men had the best reactions to him, patting his back calling him homey. We had a lot of fun, He had his partner rocket the raccoon with him always. I mad rocket out of fur and I dyed and painted the fur to look like a coon. then for his teeth are made of firm typing paper. folded and painted. his tongue is fabric his hands were stolen from a baby doll. When painting Groot I layered colors to match the character. we had a lot of fun with Groot even was the guest of honor at a birthday party for a 9 yr old. And a big hit.I think he looks a lot like the movie Groot, Hope you like him too
