Realistic Rocket Raccoon Costume

rocket_raccoon_by_shoko_cosplay-d8637e9

The picture above is not taxidermy. It’s an incredibly detailed, handmade Rocket Raccoon costume. I’ve seen a handful of costumes featuring the furry creature from Guardians of the Galaxy, but this build by Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay is a spot on match to what we see in the movie. Jérôme wasn’t sure what degree of realism they would be able to capture when they began the build, but the duo clearly figured it out.

They made every piece of the costume from the jaws and teeth, to the resin eyes, to Rocket’s giant gun. They shared several photos of the build process on Facebook, and it’s neat to see the impressive costume take shape. The gun, for instance, started as polystyrene. It also has EVA foam and PVC pipes. The finished piece is over four feet long (pictures of the gun are below).
