Why you should dress up in a Despicable Me Minion Costume at your party.
The Despicable Me movies are renowned family movies loved by kids and adults alike. So, when it comes to Halloween costumes, a minion Halloween costume is going to be hugely popular for trick or treating or for your fancy dress party!
The Minions and Despicable Me characters are a great group costume idea! The characters are recognized and are suitable for all ages from kids, to teenagers all the way to adults – there is a character for everyone.
For kids, a minion costume is just adorable! The small yellow creatures are just so cute and seeing your child enjoying Halloween dressed as a minion is going to make everyone ‘Happy’ (just like the Despicable Me soundtrack). Why not be a little different and dress up in an evil purple minion costume – it is Halloween after all. If you have a little girl we have the sisters in Despicable Me, Edith, Margo and Agnes costumes which are all super cute and quite easy to put together.
Minions make a great Halloween costume idea for adults too, but if the full family is dressing up, the kids should be the minions and the child characters – the adults have a load of other great characters to dress up as. The bad guy we learn to love and the leader of the minions, Gru. Gru is a fantastic costume idea with a very distinguishable look. Alongside Gru we should have a Vector costume, the bad guy we love to hate! With his orange tracksuit and a whole lot of gadgets that should be a real fun party. Adults will get a laugh and the children will look adorable.
When it comes down to a minion Halloween costume you have two choices, buying minions costumes or making your own. Either way is fairly easy, creating your own minion costume is a little more time consuming but it will be unique and will add to the fun.
