Guardians of the Galaxy blasted apart the box office with a $94.3 million opening last weekend. The Marvel hit continued to bring in an audience during the week with record breaking weekday numbers. Fans are hooked on this movie and some of those fans have gone above and beyond to show their affections. Cosplayers have broken out their hot glue guns and fabric stashes to recreate the beloved characters from the box office hit. As the fall convention season begins, look for these Guardians of the Galaxy cosplayers and more!
Groot: Calen Hoffman
Calen Hoffman created this spot-on Groot costume in six weeks for less than $100! Materials included pipe insulation foam, hot glue, EVA foam, kleenex, scenery foliage from model trains, and a whole lot of dremel work. From the dremel shaping to the paint job, Hoffman perfected Groot’s bark and moss aesthetic. He even built in stilts to get the right height.
Star Lord/Peter Quill and Rocket Raccoon:
Americo Galli and Alexandria the Geek
Teaming up as the goofy Peter Quill and an anthropomorphized, female Rocket Raccoon are Americo Galli and Alexandria the Geek. Galli could almost be mistaken for Chris Pratt with the detailed Star Lord mask and blasters. He even has the orange headphones. Alexandria designed a Rocket Raccoon to suit herself, complete with fluffy raccoon tale and giant gun.
Rocket Raccoon: Cyber Bunny Cosplay
If you thought Rocket Raccoon cosplay ended at humanized versions of the cyborg-raccoon, you haven’t seen Cyber Bunny Cosplay. With a full body suit and a removable head, the Italian cosplayer brings Rocket Raccoon to life. Even the facial designs are as snarky as Rocket’s!
Gamora: Clint and Jillian Cosplay
Nebula: Karin Olava Effects
Elendriel has been costuming since 2006 and loves all things superhero. Elendriel brought a stellar rendition of Ronan the Accuser to Dragon Con. This fantastic representation of Ronan was extraordinarily well received (and completely home made!).
The Guardians of the Galaxy
We only wish we knew everyone featured in this fantastic groups of Guardians! This group includes the film’s five member ragtag team alongside some comics favorites! They even have Cosmo the Space Dog!
