Disney Avengers Half Marathon Costume: Baby Groot

Baby Groot Running Costume

So for the half marathon we all decided to dress up as Guardians of the Galaxy. I decided to be Groot, but not normal Groot….Baby Groot!

It took me a while to figure out how to make the “pot” that Baby Groot was potted in. Finally I thought of this old fabric/plastic laundry basket I had.

I cut the bottom out first. Then I cut it short enough to run in.

I got brown fabric from the craft store. I figured if I made it look like dirt at the top around my waist I could add elastic to hold it up.

I got the brown to match the top I got on Amazon.

I also got a leather looking brown fabric to make it look like roots on my top. Then I threaded through green yarn and some leaves.

For the hat I took paper towel rolls and brown paper and hot glued it all to an elastic band. Then I added leaves.

This is probably my favorite disney costume to date. I LOVED the way it came out and it was so unique!
