DIY Minion Halloween Costume
This is a video tutorial that shows how to create a Minion costume and goggles. To create this costume, she uses some plastic sunglasses and silver duct tape for the goggles (just something I noticed, I would have covered the ear pieces to make the goggles look more authentic). She uses a pair of $5.00 bib denim overalls from the thrift store to create the costume, and cuts hers off for shortalls, although you could keep them as long pants for added warmth. The overalls are paired with a long sleeved yellow shirt. She also does hair and makeup , which is not necessary. If you chose to do makeup, an actual yellow face paint makeup would work best, such as this yellow color cup make-up.
