About this deal

My Thoughts: lightweight, very convenient in walking/moving. No room for a mini fan, but possibly more cooler since it’s lightweight and made from craft foam. Use a Halloween witch cauldron and use a camping mat to form the body. Spray paint the body purple. There are different versions from the official Despicable Me minion ones below or cool, steampunk versions like the ArcOne Safety Goggles or even pre-printed paper ones, which work well for minion parties. Despicable Me Minion Goggles I didn’t like how the ends were frayed, so I hemmed the edges to look better. I put the picture below on my personal Facebook with the caption “ It’s hot and humid outside but I didn’t wanna sew inside. My neighbors already know I’m crazy so it’s okay ? “. This was the most time consuming part… I bought a purple wig at first and hated how it looked, so I started scouring the internet finding ideas to make the hair of the purple minion costume more realistic.

The Bonus version includes Puppy, Training Wheels and Panic in the Mailroom in the clip below. This board is a collection of Purple (Evil) Minion images that inspired the costume, hair and makeup along with more creative ideas for DIY fun from drawings to food with the evil minion. Since I think the goggles are some of the minions coolest accessories, I would buy goggles rather than make them.

The Eye/Goggle

First you’ll want to measure the size of foam you’ll need the body. I wrapped the foam around my son to measure and gave extra room for comfort, BUT with the Styrofoam head. I wanted to make sure the purple minion costume was proportional as well. The size I needed for the head was perfect for my sons size. Once the foam is cut to the size you’ll need, hot glue the ends together. Once the glue is dried at the seam, you can start placing you’re fabric. I used Craftbond adhesive, BUT I wish I would have used something different. If I sprayed too heavy it would seep through the fabric and give a dark spot that won’t come out. It also didn’t stay adhered very well. I would suggest doing a trial run and figure out which product would work the best. I wish I would have done that for this step. To figure out how to create evil minion hair and makeup I wrote a separate section just on Purple Minion Make up and Hair to give you ideas for creating your own purple minion crazy styles. Despicable Me Minion Goggles Pre-made Goggles ArcOne Fly Safety Goggles Every single minute that we put into this costume was worth it. To see the smile on our childs face when we finished was amazing. I even got a cool video of him running around acting like an evil minion! My Thoughts: Heavier, but can use straps to offset the weight of the costume. Definitely can add a mini fan. Not mobile. Durable?

Spray adhesive glue – like this **you may choose to use something else. I didn’t like how this sprayed on. An evil purple minon costume is one of those costumes that can be easily assembled from many ordinary items with a few special extras. From top to bottom is a list of the items needed to turn into an evil minion.The planning phase took a lot of time for me to decide what to make the evil purple minion costume out of. I’m not even going to tell you the number of hours I spent on the internet searching and searching for ideas. I wrote a list of different costume designs and the pros and cons of it. It looked a little like this: Purple minions are created when one of Gru’s nemeses hatches an evil plot to take over the world. His plan it to turn Gru’s yellow minions into his purple henchmen. To do so the normally lovable yellow minions ingest or are injected with a mutagentic serum, PX-41 developed at a special lab in the Arctic circle.

Note: The official versions are for yellow minions to need to be colorized to purple. Easy to Make Minion Goggles We also went ahead and added the teeth. Just a word of advice – use white craft foam here. We started with white felt, but I hated how the teeth wouldn’t stay up, so I ended up ripping out the felt when we were finished with the costume and added the white craft foam teeth.First you’ll want to cut strips of the purple yarn to the length you’re looking for. Remember, you’ll be “brushing” (actually teasing) the yarn so it’ll add a little length to the hair in the end. Once you have your strips cut out (I ended up using around 200 or more), you’ll start hot gluing them to the head. I started out with my first row right above the minion goggle strap. I added a row all the way around the head. Once the first row was complete, I started pulling the string that was holding the yard together out, strand by strand. Then I started “teasing” the hair to make it have a wild look. I wouldn’t recommend brushing the yarn out because it’ll all start coming out and you’ll be left with an evil minion who looks like he’s loosing his hair, lol. Once I teased the first row, I started working on the second row and repeating the same steps. When I wrote the original Make a Purple Evil Minion Costume lens on Squidoo in July 2013 there were no “How To’s” for making the evil purple minion costume. Lots of tutorials for making the yellow minion, but no purples. My Thoughts: Lightweight, but very flimsy… Possibly room for a mini fan… Not quite sure. Not mobile – restricted movement. Then Illumination Entertainment came out with a new minion—the crazy, screaming, mutant purple ones (the evil minions) for Despicable Me 2. What else can you say but, BAAAHHH!
