Chase Borchardt didn’t have to steal a Morag orb to become famous, thanks to his talented mom Christina, who made him an awesome Rocket Raccoon costume. Oh yeah!

Christina, who documented her build on The RPF, says she started working on the costume last June, even before Guardians of the Galaxy came out. She sculpted the mask to make it fit her son’s face, as well as the ears, eyelids, teeth and gums. She also sewed the jumpsuit and punched or glued lots of fur, and used toed shoes to emulate Rocket’s feet.

She also attached the mask’s lower jaw with a hinge so that it could move with her son’s actual mouth.

Nerf’s Rocket Raccoon gun made her job a bit easier, but she also painted and installed LEDs on the toy. Here’s Fox 17’s interview with Christina and her little Rocket:

I love the costume’s head. It looks alive! Even Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn gave Christina props. Check out Christina’s thread on The RPF for more on her awesome project. She’d also love it if you voted for the costume on Halloween ComicFest’s contest.
