For Halloween this year we’ll be masquerading as Guardians of the Galaxy both at home and away! We attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in Orlando in September! It’s our second visit to this party, and we are super excited!

Finding costumes to purchase in either in adult or child sizes has proved pretty difficult. We love the Guardians of the Galaxy, so this is crazy surprising to us. We’ve scoured the internet, Halloween stores, and pinterest. FJackets has been a great source for creating awesome Guardians of the Galaxy costumes. We started here for Dad’s Star-Lord Halloween Costume, and were inspired by their other character suggestions. This is what we’ve been able to piece together for Rocket Raccoon.

All the supplies you need for fashioning an awesome Rocket Raccoon costume

Suit

We purchased our little guy’s Rocket Raccoon Halloween Costume off of Amazon. The suit itself is a great match. You can get versions with and without fur arms, but we had to go with fur arms, obviously. It also has an attached tail. You can also pick this up at the Spirit of Halloween with fur legs. The one we ordered had one of the foot pieces sewed on backwards so we actually went to Spirit to get the replacement.

Mask

The accompanying mask is scarier than the scary Godmother, so we knew we’d have to fashion something else. We found this awesome tutorial on making a real looking raccoon mask and only needed a few supplies to make it a reality.


It was as easy as it looks in the video! Though the above picture of supplies shows industrial glue, we ended up using hot glue like shown in the video once we found out it took 48 hours for the glue to dry. We also couldn’t find a white rubber dog nose, so we had to spray paint a brown one.

Blaster Gun

For Widmore’s Rocket Raccoon Halloween Costume Guardians of the Galaxy Blaster Gun we bought the same version as we did for Star-Lord. He wants a huge gun like Rocket has in the movies, so we promised to buy him one if we could find one at Walt Disney World.
