 Grin
So again, I was moving during Halloween crafting season.  Got my household goods delivered on Oct 10 and had surgery 3 days later so by the time I got to the costumes it was Oct. 23.
I made a yellow minion, a crazy purple minion and my oldest went as Caliborn from Homestuck (not pictured)
Not bad for a weeks worth of work Wink



I started by making a 43" tube, cutting 8" triangles into the top to make the dome. I cut the hole in the head, covered it in batting and cut a slipcover of yellow spandex to make the yellow minion.  The eye is a see-through plastic mesh that I painted to make the eye and mouth and the goggle is a pie tin.



Same process for the purple minion head.



Then I made the body from the same kind of foam tube and covered with purple and yellow and then cut denim to be the overalls.  The arms were shrug type of jackets.






And they tangoed away the night Smiley

The minions are awesome! I saw a lot of homemade Minions this year, and yours are definitely much better than many I saw. Very well done.
