Make Your Own Dancing Baby Groot and Rock the Day Away

Aug 17 2014 - 2:03pm

So, Groot. He stole the show from hero Peter Quill [1] in Guardians of the Galaxy — if stealing the show from Chris Pratt is even possible [2]. A monster-turned-superhero, Groot is an alien of few words [3], and if you stayed through to the credits of the movie (spoiler ahead), then you know he loves to dance [4].

Basically, we can't get enough of Groot, and neither could Patrick Delahanty of the Chibi Project [5], so he made a dancing baby Groot of his own using one of those weird old Movin' & Groovin' Flower toys [6]. Patrick kindly posted the how-to on his Durandal Cosplay Facebook page [7] to share with all tree superhero fans because "We are Groot," right?

Now make your own with Patrick's tips [8], and get down with Groot and the fantastic Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack [9].

It started with a $27 "Movin' & Groovin" Flower.

Muslin was used to set the canvas for Groot.

Tan felt and twine got the tree vibe going.

Brown and tan acrylic paint were next.

Patrick's fiancée sculpted Groot's head with Crayola Model Magic.

This Groot wasn't made by Patrick, but is another incredible example of homemade Groots taking over the world! . . . We'd like for them to take over the world, anyways.
