Minion Cosplay by Ziratoni Minion Cosplay by Ziratoni
This was a labor of love and I had an amazingly fun time wearing it.
The local theater was showing Despicable Me 2, I'd already seen it on it's release day in a bigger town, and thought I should make a cosplay, and the theater asked me to dance around outside the theater to take pictures with kids and get people to come out end enjoy the film. I had a BLAST Next up is the local fair in a few weeks, I've been asked to dress up as the minion again. I'm thinking of making him a straw hat and a plaid farmer's looking shirt to wear :D

I've been in love with the minions since the first movie, and after the second one I felt I needed to make a costume haha.

the minion is memory foam covered in felt and demin, the arms are just a sweater and a pair of gloves I made from some fabric scraps. The eye is spare fabric from the gloves for the band, the goggle is duct tape wrapped around a piece of table cloth, the eye is painted plastic canvas :) And the fart gun I bought at Walmart XD

hey!!  =)  I was about to comment here to tell you that YOUR awesome minion costume was actually the inspiration for ours!!  We were researching how to make the body, they were about to make it out of laminate flooring (??!) and paper-mache the dome, but I found yours here and it looked so awesome I was like...let's make it out of fabric and memory foam, like she did!  And it worked like a charm!!  Thank you SO much!  We consulted your picture many times throughout the process!  We had to make the mouths open because it got REALLLLLY hot in there and we needed to cut holes for ventilation.  I'll link back to you on my picture!  =)

Oh man, ventilation in the mouth would of been a fantastic idea! I'll have to use that on the next minion I make(I'm planning on making a purple one at some point) XD And I thank you very very much for the fact you found my cosplay helpful ^_^ it's awesome when that happens :D I shall add a link to you as well, it's always cool to have more minions running around :D
