Chris: "I am Groot."
Mags: "He's saying you can put his piece of candy in my trick-or-treating bag."
Chris and the kids created something a few weekends ago that was so amazing I had to share. Brag, even. We decided this summer what we wanted to be for Halloween (as a family) the moment we stepped out of the theater after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy.
Mags was quick to put her claim on Rocket Racoon and Tuck wasted no time snagging Star Lord. They told me I had to be Gamora and I really didn't mind. She was the kick-butt green chick in the movie. Chris had a few choices, but he was set on Groot. Groot, the ginormous tree creature.
After pulling out the materials he'd need in order to create this costume, he and the kids got busy. "It'll only take a few hours at most." Famous last words. Much like Tucker's birth, this timeline was WAY too ambitious. Soooo, TWENTY HOURS later, Groot was born...in my kitchen. My kitchen that now resembled the Henson's Creature Shop Challenge. No matter. In all seriousness, the results were OUTSTANDING!
Take a look at a bit of the process and final product:
So, spill. What are you guys going to be this year?
