We hosted a Halloween party for our friends at our house last weekend. I knew right away we were going as a minion and Gru. My husband is a big bald guy and it was just too perfect.
Costumes were purchased at Goodwill, I used yellow RIT dye to dye the shirt and leggings and used black pipe cleaners and hot glued them to a yellow hard hat for my minion costume head. I got a witch nose from a halloween store and attached it with spirit gum to get the long Gru nose. I used a dark brown eyeliner pen and drew on his eyebrows and used MAC Satin Taupe around his eyes for that bruised look Gru has.
