Guardians of the Galaxy was a serious summer hit, and it seems like all of the film’s characters, especially the oh-so-lovable Groot, have really struck a chord with cosplayers. Speaking of which, Reddit user Tylernator wanted to make a Groot costume for himself, but he had a pretty strict budget. So, the clever cosplayer was actually able to improvise a pretty fantastic costume for only $62. As you know, cosplaying can be an expensive passion, so I’m pretty impressed with Tylernator’s results.
Check out a breakdown of the budget and some more pics after the break…
Here’s his final budget:
Bags, bars and twigs: No cost
Repurposed hoodie from Goodwill:$3
Paints: Roughly $30
