Nothing warms our hearts quite like a family who dress up together for Halloween. We’ve seen families dress up as the cast of Cinderella, others have channelled their darker side by dressing up as The Addams Family. One family has stolen our hearts by dressing up as the Guardians of the Galaxy characters.
Marvel fans, prepare to swoon. The adorable family shared their insanely creative costumes on the Love What Matters Facebook page. We can’t believe how much effort the parents made.
Dad Tim Burket wrote, “My daughter loves Guardians of the Galaxy! I decided to show her the first one at home and she just fell in love with all the characters especially Groot and Rocket.”
The dad shared that he worked as a 3D draftsman, so he decided to put his talents to good use this Halloween when his daughter revealed what she wanted to dress up as.
Tim shared, “We have always enjoyed Halloween, but she has inspired us to take it to the next level.”
The parents certainly went above and beyond for Halloween this year. The family are crazy about arts and crafts, so it comes as no surprise to hear that creating their Halloween costumes has become a special family tradition.
“The costume thing has become a family effort involving about half the year”, he added.
Their daughter has been planning her costume since the beginning of the summer. “By her birthday in May, she was already telling us she wanted to be Rocket for Halloween. I tried suggesting I be Star-Lord, but she insisted that I be Groot because he is Rocket's best friend.”
The dad revealed they spent over 300 hours working on their costumes. They have a special workshop beside their family home where they created their incredible costumes.
Tim admitted that he sold his project car when his daughter was born. He used the money to convert his backyard shop into a creative workplace for his daughter.
“It's not just Halloween, for us it's all year long. I am doing the best I can to provide a safe and well-stocked shop for her to continue to explore her artistic talents while also enjoying testing the limits of mine.”
The caring dad revealed that art is one of the family’s biggest passions. “Making things for yourself gives you pride and actual skills for the workplace and we are hoping to pass as much of that as we can on to her.”
Tim’s daughter was thrilled when he unveiled their Guardians of the Galaxy costumes.
The trio look like they just walked off the set of the Marvel movie!
