One baby recently made his debut as Baby Groot at Boston Comic-Con — and the tiny cosplayer even got a stamp of approval from Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

According to The Boston Globe, the infant is 5-month-old Charlie Lockwood from Sommerville, Massachusetts, and he came out dressed as the potted alien tree beast. “1st still from #GotGVol2,” Gunn joked on Instagram. 

Charlie’s mom, Tracie Lockwood, wrote on Imgur, “It’s my husband’s booth, and I can assure you no comics were injured in the process. Since he can’t stand, we supported most of the weight.” And if you’re wondering whether he can dance, too, the answer is yes. Yes, he can

The real Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) will be seen again in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, in theaters May 5, 2017.
