Groot Fever - This Giant Groot Cosplay Wins The Internet
If Guardians of the Galaxy keeps killing it at the box office like it has been the last couple of weeks, it has a shot at becoming the most successful Marvel movie of the year. Much of that success can be attributed to the adoration fans are showing towards Groot and Rocket Raccoon. Rocket's appeal is instantly understandable, he's soft and cuddly and he has a serious attitude. But the fan reaction to the tree-like Groot has been surprisingly overwhelming. Images of the lexiconically challenged alien have been swamping blogs in every corner of the internet, but one man has taken his love of Groot to new and jaw-dropping levels.
Prop artist Calen Hoffman is the man behind the mask, and he has detailed his transformation into Groot in this album. Hoffman's track record is impressive - past works have covered everything from Bioshock to beautifully crafted cosplays of Baird from Gears of War. However, as you'll see when you scroll down, Hoffman's work on everyones favourite Guardian is arguably his greatest work yet.
