This is the very impressive Rocket Racoon costume created by Shoko and Jérôme Cosplay (links to their Facebook with a bunch of work-in-progress shots). It took about a month to complete and my roommate just walked by and noted, "I'm not even a furry and I would hit that." He needs help. He also needs a new place to stay, because, he doesn't know it yet, but I'm throwing all his stuff out in the hall and changing the locks while he's home for Thanksgiving. And before you go running off thinking I'm some kind of jerk, do you know how many times he's gotten so blackout drunk he's peed on and ruined one of my laptops? The fact that the answer is more than zero should be more than enough to justify my decision (two -- as of last night the answer is two).
Keep going for two more shots of the finished product.
Thanks to A Girl Named Michael, who agrees this guy and Groot together would make an unstoppable force in the couples costume contest circuit.
