Check out this Groot cosplay heavily inspired by Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie. It's not even done yet, and it's already shaping up to be one hell of an outfit. The head is pretty much done, while everything else still needs some work. I was thinking in my head that this must be a cosplay for Dragon*Con, and yes, I'm right, it is. Dragon*Con is a geek convention that brings out the best in Cosplay.
Here's what Cosplayer Hurleyfx had to say about the process:
Holy groot balls, we did it, 2 of us, 400lb approx of 5’5 groot leg mould.
i have sore hands, i am bruised, bleeding and my back and knees hate me. But thanks to my partner in crime Lauren we are past the mould stage of being worried. Granted it is not the prettiest of moulds, but i am severely on the clock now, and time waits for no man. anyway, here is the destruction of our apartment ( yes for those who may not know this is all being build in a 1 bedroom apartment, well what was the dining/living room )
