Is this blog headline misleading? Yes. Did Bellingham resident Jonathan Lambert spend 45 hours creating an amazing 9-foot Groot Halloween costume? Yes.
“The costume took about 45 hours to make and I used styrofoam, super glue, duct tape and plaster to create it,” Jonathan said.
He even won the Halloween costume contest and $250 at the Royal on Halloween. I met with Jonny at Uisce in Bellingham and followed him around downtown making stops at the Wild Buffalo, Bobs Burgers and Brew and Glow. We even rode in an elevator at one, which was impressive considering Jonny was about 9-feet tall in the costume.
