baby-groot-costume-2-499x480

All of the characters in Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy were absolutely wonderful, but the one who definitely stole the show was Groot (especially dancing baby Groot). We’ve seen some spectacular Groot cosplay for cons, and even a baby Groot or two, but there isn’t much out there as far as an official costume is concerned. This instructable provides a solution. It’s remarkably clever, and the materials she used were all pretty simple: paper, duct tape and a bit of glue.

Sure, it’s probably not the most maneuverable costume around, but it sure is cool looking (reminds us of the Funko vinyl) and it’s also pretty affordable to make.

gauntlet missle

Prop maker Patrick Priebe has a thing for crafting gadgets that fire real do-not-try-this-at-home kinds of stuff. His latest invention is a take on the gauntlet that Iron Man uses to blow his enemies to smithereens (tank missile!). Patrick’s version has a palm-mounted laser (which is strong enough to pop a balloon) and also a built-in rocket launcher. Patrick, you’re a bit bonkers, but gosh do we love your videos. Keep it up!

villain pub

Trying to take over the world isn’t easy. At the end of the day, even villains need a place to relax, which is when they head over to the Villain Pub. Loki, Voldemort, Joker and all your evil faves are there, just waiting to mock each other for their fashion choices.

See the video after the break.

gillan shaved head

We finally have video of Karen Gillan having her wonderful head of hair shaved for her role as Nebula in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

It’s just as adorable as you think it would be. Her face is such a variety of reactions and all of them are just so…her.

Head after the break to watch the video.

According to Funko, this is the first ever tattoo of the Pop! Dancing Groot figurine, and it belongs to @89centburrito. I never thought I’d actually ever say this in my life, but damn, that is one adorable tattoo.

Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly may be playing Hope Van Dyne in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man movie, but her hair sure makes her look like Wasp. Lilly posted a picture of the short ‘do on Instagram yesterday stating, “How’s my new do?” Another picture shows her with Paul Rudd so it seems very likely that she’s on set.

So, the question is will Lilly essentially be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Wasp who goes by another name that isn’t Janet Van Dyne? If that’s the case, I don’t understand the reasoning for changing it up. Or, is Marvel just screwing with us and giving Lilly a bob cut to make us curious? Ahhh! I want answers.

See another pic of the hair and a comparison with Wasp after the break.

trooper helmet 1

It’s hard to tell if we’re looking at actual designs that will be used in the film or good (but fake) fan art, but there’s no doubt that these Han Solo and Snowtrooper costume images from Indie Revolver are making the rounds and are being cited as the real deal. Real or fake, they are interesting either way.

So far, we have a look at Han in a trenchcoat that’s less like his Endor camo and a little more Browncoaty. There’s also a snow uniform that looks like like his old Hoth gear. As for the troopers, no word on which side of the fight they’re on, but they appear to be snow troopers.

You can see the images after the break.

Director James Gunn wanted the make-up effects for the aliens in Guardians of the Galaxy to look genuine, and special effects makeup designer Dave White was the man who made it happen. In an interview with Co. Create he said:

“I’ve been fortunate to have been around the Marvel world for a little while,” he enthused to Co.Create. “I like to think my own artwork and style has worked well within the universe. James had very specific ideas and I would give an interpretation of what I thought would work. Ultimately, it’s down to what the director wants to see: He needs to go through that process of testing ideas to see how they read in the world he wants to create.” He continued, “There is a retro hint in the [Guardians] designs. I was very careful not to use modern creature design influences that could have fallen short in the unique world Gunn had envisioned.”

These incredible images show just how much work went into creating the fantastic aliens that were scene on-screen.

The Guardians of the Galaxy may be heroes who saved the universe, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a little help in the form of stunt doubles who make them look even more awesome on the big screen. These photos of the cast’s stunt doubles were posted by Chloe Bruce, who is Zoe Saldana’s double in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jaimie Alexander’s double in Thor: The Dark World.
