Lifelike Rocket Raccoon Costume

I’ve been impressed by a number of realistic Rocket Raccoon costumes since the release of Guardians of the Galaxy last summer, but this build by Warren Goodwin might be the best. The cosplayer is working on the project for the Dunedin 2015 Armageddon Expo taking place on February 28 – March 1 in New Zealand. He began posting photos of the costume at the end of December, and he’s come a long way in a month and a half. Everything you see was sculpted, built, and sewn from scratch. He made a mask for Rocket’s head and added the fur, he made the mouth and teeth, he constructed the gun (it looks like it started life as a a piece of medium density fibreboard), and created the jumpsuit and armor pieces.

Goodwin took a huge amount of photos as he worked on Rocket Raccoon so you can really see the effort that’s gone into the costume and appreciate how much it’s evolved. I’d love to see Goodwin string all the photos together into a timelapse video. Here’s a small sampling of the images:
