guardians of the galaxy

Yondu

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) is a blue-skinned bandit and leader of the Ravagers, who raised Peter Quill from when he was a boy. In GOTG2, he upgrades his “ridge” to a full-blown mohawk, more in keeping with the comic version of his character. Spray-paint an arrow gold to create his whistle-controlled Yaka Arrow.

Nebula

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Nebula (Karen Gillan) is adopted by Thanos and raised as a sibling of Gamora. Sure she’s sadistic and evil, but at the same time it’s clear she’s jealous and hurt by the success of her older sister. For this costume, apply the metallic silver paint to face and left arm.

Drax the Destroyer

Drax the Destroyer

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a powerful alien whose family was slaughtered by Ronan and Thanos. He joins Peter Quill and vows revenge on them along with Gamora. For the costume, use the gray body paint to touch up parts that aren’t covered by the costume, such as your neck and hands.

Mantis

Mantis

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) uses are telepathic powers to sense others’ emotions when she makes physical contact with them. Despite this ability she remains innocent and rather naive, which makes sense given that she’s spent most of her life in solitude with Peter Quill’s father Ego. Who would have guessed the antennas would be sold at Hot Topic of all places?

Vin Diesel at the Guardians Premiere

At the European premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy in London, Vin Diesel did his best Groot impression, wearing stilts and donning an “I am Groot” shirt. We are all Groot, but some, like Vin, are more Groot than others.

Groot and Rocket Raccoon

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) is a tree-like humanoid who teams up with Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), a genetically engineered mercenary raccoon. The best part about playing Groot is that you only need to know one line: I am Groot.

Gamora

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is an orphan from an alien world who’s trained by Thanos to be a fierce warrior and his personal assassin. When Peter Quill steals an orb, it’s Gamora who’s sent to reclaim it.

Peter Quill / Star-Lord

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is abducted as a kid by a group of space smugglers. All grown up, he spends his time scoring jobs, hooking up with hot alien girls, and just being a rogue, until he finds a higher calling in life as Star-Lord.
