Marvel costumes have been big hits in the last few years, last but not least of which are the Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween costumes. Guardians of the Galaxy is a fan favorite Marvel film, and with at least one more Guardians movie and a massive tie-in with the rest of the Marvel universe ahead, they are sure to be popular for several years to come.
Of course, first we must mention Star-Lord (a.k.a. Peter Quill), the witty and charming leader of the Guardians. The standard children’s Star Lord costume comes with a printed overcoat and mask. The overcoat is meant to reach the ankles, so all that is needed to complete the outfit is a pair of black shoes. Black combat boots or all-black Converse would match perfectly with the costume.
The deluxe Star-Lord Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween costume for kids has a faux leather overcoat with an attached bandolier and a more realistic mask. The coat is designed to look more like a trench coat, so both pants and boots are needed for this costume. Grey or black pants and black or brown boots are a perfect way to complete the look. Black gloves and Star-Lord’s own gun are sold separately at very reasonable price points to make the costume absolutely perfect.
For adults, the Star-Lord Grand Heritage Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween costume comes with an intricate trench coat with detailing on the shoulders, torso, and hem; elbow-length gauntlet gloves; and a realistic mask with red eyes that light up. This movie Halloween costume is gorgeously detailed with sewn-on patches of leather for additional accenting. Pants, boots, and Star-Lord’s gun are all that is needed to complete this look that’s sure to be a hit.
Star-Lord is nothing without his leading lady Gamora. The Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costume for kids comes with a detailed jumpsuit, belt, and fingerless elbow-length gloves. Black boots are recommended to pair with this costume, and an official long, brunette Gamora wig with red tipped locks is available for sale. Green skin paint might be too much mess for a little one, but skin-safe glitter pencils can add Gamora’s facial markings to complete the look without green rubbing off all over the upholstery. The adult version of Gamora’s costume is a bit more skin-tight and has a more realistic belt and gloves. There is also an official Gamora face makeup kit for adults that includes green paint and glitter pencils for the accents.
Groot is a Guardians fan favorite with his endearing intonement “I am Groot.” The Groot Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costume for kids includes a jumpsuit with root-like shoe covers and a mask. The adult Reacher costume is a little more complex. The jumpsuit is layered, while the mask is intricately realistic and reaches the collarbone. The oversized Groot gloves have an intricate design of vines and branches.
Groot’s sharp-witted companion is Rocket Raccoon, and his Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costume for kids or adults comes with a jumpsuit with furry arms, legs, and tail, as well as a plastic mask. Furry gloves and black boots are sold separately to complete the look. For additional detailing, line the part of the eye that is visible through the mask with a black makeup stick to get that raccoon bandit look.
Drax the Destroyer is the final member of this band of misfits. The Drax Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costume for adults and kids includes an intricately-designed jumpsuit with shoe covers and a mask. In the movie and comics, Drax wears black boots, so black boots or shoes will complete the look perfectly.
With one more movie and an Avengers tie in within the next few years, you’re sure to get a lot of mileage from your favorite Guardians of the Galaxy Halloween Costume.
