This Cosplay Is Groot

groot cosplay 1

Guardians of the Galaxy made us fall head over heels for Groot, and cosplayers are rising to the challenge of becoming the sentient tree being. Calen Hoffman made an incredible version of the costume, and he is Groot. The details are impressive. From start to finish, it took him 1.5 months to build his Groot. I’m stunned he put it together that quickly. Here are some of the basics:

The main body is pipe insulation foam, hot glued (low temp) to a suit of under armor(on my duct tap mannequin). The bark plates and mask are carved EVA foam sheets. The bark texture is kleenex soaked in Tacky glue and water. I recommend that you use something a little thicker than kleenex though, maybe tissue paper. Then painted with rattle cans and acrylics. The moss is scenery foliage(in the model train section at your local hobby store).
