My kids are obsessed with the movie Despicable Me! I did not like the commercial costume at all so I went to work and made my own Homemade Minions Costume.
I started with overalls and drew the “Gru” logo on them. Next, I took a yellow hoodie and hot glued black pipecleaners to the hoods for their “hair”. For those that aren’t familiar with the movie, Minions don’t all have the same hair styles so I had my boys each choose which hair-do they wanted. I found their “goggles” at the dollar store and removed the nose, mustache, and eyebrows, then hot glued black Velcro to the sides so they would stay on their heads. The look was finished by using yellow make-up, black gloves and black shoes. The base of the hoodie was taped together.
They were the hit of their school Spooktacular event!
