Despicable Me: DIY Costumes for the Family

DIY Despicable Me (7) A

Do your kids LOVE Despicable Me? Zach & Lily are obsessed!

For Halloween Zach asked to be Gur from Despicable Me, which I though was uber adorable, especially when I had

After I had a plan in place, as any normal warm blooded 4 year old would do, Zach changed his mind.  Now he was bound and determined to be a Minion for Halloween…

After a quick re-planning to my initial plan; I re-assigned characters to the kids, incorporated Andy as Gru, the former villain turned good guy and myself as Lucy Wilde, an Anti Villain League Agent and Gru’s Love Interest.  I placed a call to a dear crafty friend for a few D.I.Y Minion costumes, started sewing up a storm and supply shopping for a husband-size Gru!
