We Are Groot.

Everyone wants to get their hands on a certain dancing tree. Well there are ways now, you can give a crafter some support, or you can take up the tools of your preferred craft and have at it. Heck there was a post here just a couple days ago with a lovely piece of Groot jewelry.

I know what you are saying, that’s all well and good but I want my Groot to dance.  Well, The Mary Sue shared the instructions to do that as well.

After all that there is only one thing left to say. I am Groot.

I Am Groot’s Jewelry

Jewelry artist Danica Asurdzic has created a really lovely doublesided pendant of Groot.

The pendant is made of copper wire and gemstones. She used blue sheen labradorite for his eyes. When it’s flipped over to the flying rocket side inspired by the ship’s colors (blue, orange and white), she used clear quartz points, orange carnelian from Botswana, blue obsidian, and tiny white opal behind it . She also included a “tunnel” for the chain in the middle, so it can be flipped and worn both sides without taking it off.

“I Am Groot” T-Shirt

HeyThatsSuper is a t-shirt shop on Etsy in Montgomery, AL, and they’ve got the t-shirt we are all going to need this summer: “Hello, I Am Groot.”

HeyThatsSuper’s t-shirts are 4.2 oz., 100% ring spun cotton, and printed with eco-friendly water-based ink, making them super soft, inside and out. Personally, I love the idea of this shirt, but I think it would be better in a lighter color, something a little more “Groot”-like.

Guardians of the Galaxy starts Friday, August 1.

Cosplay Fun at Planet Comicon 2015!

IBOT

I spent the past weekend at Planet Comicon in Kansas City, and even though I spent the weekend working my booth (The Costume Wrangler’s Closet), I did get to see some pretty awesome cosplay.  Above are some of the amazing folks from the Iron Brothers of Topeka (IBOTS).

This little Rainbow Dalek exterminates with cuteness according to her mom!

Sharknado

I had to run this boy down to get his picture for a friend who’s obsessed with Sharknado.  I particularly love the faux gore on all the sharks.  How creative is this kid?!

Groot

I snuck a snapshot of this cosplayed in a seriously cool Groot costume.

R2-Q5

Technically this isn’t cosplay, but the Kansas City R2 Builders Club have got some pretty amazing R2s, like this R2-Q5, an evil R2 whose allegiance belonged to the Empire!

She-Ra

This chainmaille She-Ra was a volunteer from Amanda Lynn Chainmaille Creations.

Guardians of Geekdoms

Hello All! I’m sure most of you have seen Guardians of the Galaxy by now (and if you haven’t, why?? Go, go! I’ll wait.). Baby Groot is undoubtedly one of the cutest things to hit the big screen, and I joined the masses in trying to create my own version of him for a friend’s Christmas gift.

Since I couldn’t find any plushie versions, I decided to make my own, and documented the process so I could make a Baby Groot tutorial!

Baby Groot Tutorial

There’s only one baby Groot that I believe is cuter than mine:

Featured on FashionablyGeek, Reddit user S7ar-lord’s wife made this costume for their baby boy for Halloween, and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn tweeted the picture, saying he was “out-cuted”.

If retro-media is more your style, there’s crafts for you too! First, in honor of the “Awesome Mix Vol. 1” that Peter Quill aka Starlord listens to, 30MinuteCrafts created a printable cassette tape box, perfect for any cosplay, or just a geeky place to keep things!
