Minions (Despicable Me) Halloween Costumes Popular This Year

Every time a new set of movie characters arrives on the scene you can be sure that those characters are going to be showing up as Halloween costumes and it’s no different this year with the Despicable Me Halloween costumes.

The Despicable Me movie came out this summer and is still receiving rave reviews. By all accounts the movie is well liked by kids as well as adults. If you are not aware of the plot here’s a quick recap.

Gru wants to be a villain. Not just any villain mind you; he wants to be at the top of the villain list. He wants to be a super villain. Not a super hero mind you, but a super villain. Freeze drying the people ahead of him in line at Starbucks just isn’t enough for Gru. Not even popping kid’s balloons satisfies this want to be super bad guy.

Urged forward with a need to impress his rather strange mother, played by Julie Andrews, Gru is running into problems. Vector, known as an uber-nerd and Gru’s archrival, has just stolen the Great Pyramid.

Gru, not to be outdone has a plan to steal the moon. Gru has a lair under his suburban home and an army of minions known as, you guessed it, Minions. Their main job is to cheer him on and to have some fantastically hilarious moments in the movie.

Enter three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes who are looking for a dad. Gru, of course, has no interest in that but he does keep the girls around as part of his plan to infiltrate the home of Vector.

As you would guess, the little girls end up winning over Gru and super bad ends up being a super dad. Although it sounds predicable, the movie is done with such humor, not to mention the incredible animation by Pixar that it turns out to be a thoughtful, family-friendly treat.

The Despicable Me Minions look quite a bit like yellow tennis balls with eyes and the Despicable Me Minion Dave and Minion Jorge kids costumes mimic that look with the big eyes and goggles on the front in order to leave the heads and eyes free; the better to trick or treat with.

The adult Minion costumes include blue overalls, those distinctive big eyes and goggles.

There are Gru and Vector Despicable Me costumes of course as well as a Despicable Me Agnes costume. Also available this year are Gru and Vector masks and no one will have to develop some super scientific way to grow a nose, ears or chin to match the super villains looks.

Shopping online for these Despicable Me Halloween costumes is easy and will save time and money with no standing in line as well as return policies for dissatisfaction and price match guarantees. But don’t wait too long. As the new kids on the block, Despicable Me costumes are predicted to be popular this year.

Whatever costumes you and your family decides to use this Halloween, have fun and stay safe. Happy Halloween.
