If you want to cosplay Rocket, it never hurts to have a Groot. So, when Redditor MEG4NTRON made her Rocket Cosplay, she made the Groot as well.
Yes, there’s actually someone in that Groot costume and he’s on homemade stilts. Rocket’s 5 feet tall, so you can get an idea of the scale (the door can really throw you off).
The cosplay took about 2 months and a budget of $150. Groot’s head is latex and the main body is a morph suit covered in builder’s paper. Groot’s bark pieces and Rocket’s gun are made of EVA foam.
