1  Minion Carrying a Box Illusion Costume in Halloween Costumes by kiddyfactory on: December 11, 2013 05:30:35 PM


I have a friend who loves minion from Despicable Me and I've also been loving these cute little yellow nuggets. He had an unique idea to make Halloween costume with illusion of a minion carrying banana box while having you in the box. I just had to be part of this!



So here are progress shots of how it was made.
 
You should click here to see the end result and more details how this costume was made.

The chalkboard art was used as backdrop we drew to take photo with the costume.

1. So now you have 2 pieces. Sew them together with invisible thread. Then flip it out.


2. Sew together the lining.
3. Use the super glue to brush the edges of the lining so it won't fray. Dry.


4. Fold the edge of the sewing ends of the lining and fold it outward and either sew together with the crochet from the inside or glue them together.
5. The arch area where you are going to be clasping with the coing frame, quickly sew the lining and the crochet with invisible thread so they stay together when your clasping the coin frame.


6. Clasping the coin frame has many ways, this is my way:
   - With a screwdriver, stuff the edge of the pouch inside the coin frame with the rope to stay steady, then pinch the rim of the frame.
Here's other places that shows how to do it with better instruction:

5. L to R
6. R to L
