Two years ago I searched high and low for a cute minion costume but ended up coming away empty handed :( I’m not sure who comes up with costume designs, but the minion costumes I found were… well…

I got to work and was able to whip up a super easy, inexpensive (and WARM) minion costume for Ryan. It was a huge hit! Plus, we were left with a really cool hat we could wear afterwards!

The Minion Hat

  • start with a yellow fleece beanie hat (I could only find white so I had to use fabric paint!)

  • Nylon rope for the goggle strap

  • We used grey felt to cover a ring for the goggles (which was a Tupperware container I cut)

  • A black button on brown felt for the eye

black fabric button

 

  • Black pipe cleaners fed through a small black button and sewn to the top for the hair

The Costume

  • Blue jean overalls with the “Gru” symbol drawn with fabric marker (I couldn’t find jean overalls, so I used blue fabric dye on khaki corduroy overalls)
