My husband and I saw “Despicable Me 2″ last weekend (it was his idea…he hasn’t watched an animated movie or a cartoon with me since “Toy Story” came out!), and as before, those little minions are just wildly funny. And according to the great vast internet, they remain pretty popular.
Brain from Kansas posted a tutorial on how he turned his son into a minion for Halloween, with the bulk of the costume coming from a garbage can. “As soon as my son saw Dispicable Me, my son immediately knew he wanted to be a minion. I had made his costumes for the past several years…, so I started working on this new challenge. He can be pretty shy, but once he was in this costume, his personality lit up.” Brian has some really great photos in his tute, which would be easy to recreate, or turn into a static display for a porch for a Halloween decoration.
Up next, an unknown family goes total “Despicable Me” cosplay! I really wish there was some way to ID them here. This is an awesome group costume!
And someone, please, tell me if I’m seeing this right…Check out Vector there in the photo. Does anyone else think that looks like Kristin Wiig, or is it just me?
BTW, if you go see “Despicable Me 2,” stay through the credits. There’s some funny minion stuff during the credits, but nothing afterwards.
