This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Nathan, the 'Minion' costume creator:

This is Charlie who is 2 years old, wearing a Minion costume. Charlie absolutely loves the Despicable Me movies, and especially loves the Minion characters. I got started with the costume about 2 months prior to Halloween.

Instructions to make costume:
I started with a large balloon and wrapped multiple layers of poster board around the balloon to make the "pill shape" of the minion, with an opening at the bottom. I then paper-mached the entire thing. After the paper-mache dried, I popped the balloon. I then cut the mouth, arm, and eye holes. I used duct tape to build out the lower lip. After this I covered the entire structure with yellow felt and made the arms out of felt as well. The hair is pipe cleaners stuck through the top.

To make the eyes/goggles, I used 4 inch PVC pipe, with 4 inch PVC pipe caps. I sawed holes in the caps to make the bevel on the front of the goggles. I then added small beads that had a flat side to make the little raised bumps around the edge of the goggles. I used a metallic spray paint to paint the goggles. I then used a light weight modeling clay to make the whites of the eyes as well as the eye lids. The iris/pupil is drawn on a piece of paper and glued in place. The goggle's strap is a thick backpack like strap material, hot-glued into place.

The overalls are real size 46 overalls, cut off at the legs, hot-glued into place and tucked under the body. I used a sharpie to draw Gru's logo. Charlie worn his own jeans to make it look like the overalls continued to his feet.

Inside the body, I fashioned a harness like structure to keep the costume in place. Charlie kept the costume on the whole time while Trick-or-Treating, but I did have hold him by the hair (pipe cleaners) a few times, to stabilize him.

The entire costume probably cost about $100 for all the parts and materials.

Thanks for the nice comments. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, I haven't checked these comments in a while. For those of you who asked if I sell these comments, I don't, sorry. This costume took me 2 months, with working pretty hard each day. Also I spent a fair amount on materials, so if I made more and sold them I would probably have to charge more than most would be willing to pay. Hopefully you found another good costume option this past halloween. Thanks again. If you are interested in attempting to make it yourself, I could give you a more detailed explanation of the steps and materials I used. Email me at natevick[at]yahoo.com
