Rocket Raccoon, arguably one the most loveable of the Guardians Of The Galaxy characters, inspired what might have been one of the coolest DIY costumes we’ve seen this Halloween. Chris Borchardt, a youngster in Michigan, had the rascally raccoon costume made by his mom, Christina.

This isn’t their first rodeo – the family regularly attends Comic-Cons and has plenty of experience designing cool Halloween costumes. This costume is actually only the first of eight Guardians Of The Galaxy Halloween costume ideas that she will make for the whole family as they prepare for the next Comic-Con in May.

UPDATE: Christina wrote up a detailed step-by-step of her awesome DIY Halloween costume that you can check out on therpf.com!
