Minion and Gru Couple Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from B, the 'Minion and Gru' costume creator:
I am wearing the minion and my husband is wearing Gru. I love the movie Despicable Me so decided to go with the idea for Halloween. I made the costume out of felt and a fabric that looks like jeans. Inside, I used stuffing and plastic sacks. The arms I sewed afterwards from the scraps and the glasses are made out of tinfoil and cardboard. I'm not a sewer at all so this was pretty easy to make (clearly). My husband is a student, so his costume was easier: just a scarf and clothes already laying around the house. Together, this costume cost around $50 to make, though if I'd used a coupon, it would have been cheaper. NOTE: If you wear this costume, kids will LOVE you!
