When it comes to cosplay, there aren't too many characters out there at the moment more popular than the Guardians of the Galaxy gang. Rocket Raccoons, Star-Lords, Gamoras and Draxs are everywhere, and unsurprisingly so - Guardians' awesome, unique leading characters lend themselves perfectly to cosplay.

One hero, though, seems to have tapped into the general pop cultural consciousness more than any other, though - a certain tree-like alien named Groot.

And, so, gifted cosplayers the world over have, much like the hero himself, that they are, in fact, Groot. And, being the awesome artists that they are, the results tend to be pretty darned epic.

Like, for instance, Imgur user Skissored's recently revealed take on the character...

It Started Simply...

Or, at least, as simply as that level of technical complexity can...

With Some Pretty Substantial Stilts...

I. Am. Taller...

And an Awesome Mask...

Got to love that kind of attention to detail...

...That Only Got More Awesome...

Just...look at the eyes...

And a Black Undercoat For the Body...

Which is all very Nazgul, if you ask me...

...Which Quickly Became a Whole Lot More Detailed...

I. Am. Textured...

As Well as Impressively Assembled...

Bonus points for the accurately extended neck...

...And Fantastically Mobile...

Just look at that freedom of movement!

Though, of Course, It Wouldn't Work Without a Raccoon-Like Sidekick...

And...that's officially fully adorable.

And The Best Part?...It Isn't Even Finished Yet!

Just imagine how great it'll look when it's finished!

Nicely played, Skissored... Nicely played...

What do you guys think, though?
