The Internet has succeeded in the department of showcasing awesome Halloween costumes. People went all out for the holiday, and parents really upped their game to transform their children. Don and Christina Borchardt made this incredible, realistic Rocket Raccoon costume. He looks a lot like both the character in Guardians of the Galaxy and a real raccoon. It’s uncanny and awesome. The Borchardts said the ensemble isn’t one hundred percent finished — they didn’t get to age and distress all the leather — but those are just details. Their son didn’t care (I wouldn’t either).
