You know how to make a Baby Groot Halloween Costume? Have a baby to dress up as Baby Groot. It’s that simple; my work is done!

Our family is dressing up as Guardians of the Galaxy for Halloween. We’ve got a few festivities up our sleeves, including a church party, a neighborhood party, and attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in Orlando! Our first celebration is just around the corner, so there’s no time to waste!

Naturally, our baby will be the member of our family dressing up in a Baby Groot Halloween Costume! It wasn’t her first choice. She wants to be Moana, of course, so halfway through the night the Guardians of the Galaxy may have a new superhero join their crew.

All the supplies you’ll need for a Baby Groot Halloween Costume

Costume

At least for pictures, we’ll have some memory of her being Baby Groot. We picked up her costume, which is actually super adorable, off of Amazon. Again, you can see that mask is hideous. At Zurcher’s we picked her up a pair of super groot, Baby Groot shades for her Baby Groot Halloween Costume (they are a few dollars more on Amazon)! It’s a much better accompaniment, and she’ll have control over her facial obstructions.

               

I thought she might be more inclined to be Baby Groot if she had a twirly brown skirt to wear with her costume. I stressed about it for weeks, and like I always do, I convinced myself I am a seamstress and I made her a tulle skirt. Except, it didn’t look like I envisioned and it looked terrible on the costume because it bunched up the waist. It was a valiant effort.

Rocket’s Battery Bomb Prop

For added dramatics, we also constructed our Baby Groot Halloween Costume to include the famous bomb that Baby Groot uses to destroy Ego’s brain. This prop is fashioned out of a child’s shoe box flipped upside down, and spray painted silver (we should have used the same silver we used for Gamora’s sword). Most of the items we had lying around the house, but we did have to purchase a few items such as the red buttons, dowels (Michael’s) and lights.
