Despicable Me Costumes
If you don’t know what Despicable Me is, then you’re really missing out on one of the funniest comedy movie franchises. This franchise gave birth to many laugh out loud scenes and endearing characters.
Even the villains, rather than being ones that would frighten children, make them laugh with delight over their antics. The movies are based on the criminal mastermind known as Gru, which is played by the talented Steve Carell.
In the first movie, he adopts some sweet little girls that he plans to use to further his criminal pursuits. But as he gets to know the kids and grows to love them. Gru becomes a better person.
Gru is a hilarious criminal with an obvious soft side. You can find his costume for adults or teens and this outfit really does a good job of looking exactly like the one he wears on the big screen.
Keep in mind that there will be some variances with the costume due to different manufacturers. One of the hallmarks of his costume is the latex mask. Not every costume will include this piece, but if you’re going to dress like him, you really do need it.
This mask is rounded just like the character’s face, which gives him kind of an apple look. The mask also has extra-long eyebrows that are drawn into an arching frown. He has a long, narrow beak shaped nose and wide eyes.
He has a thin, smirking smile on the mask. Some of the costumes for Gru feature a shirt that’s usually in a muted color. The pants are usually dark. In the movies, he wears a striped scarf and you’ll find that with most of the costumes.
None of the costumes of this character include shoes. Some of the other characters that are wildly popular in the franchise are the minions. You can also find these for adults or baby, toddler and children sizes.
There are also plus sizes available. Some of these costumes are inflatable ones while others are not. One minion costume features the jailbird look and can have goggles, a hat, gloves, and the jumpsuit.
Another minion costume might be the jumpsuit overalls that the minions wear. You can find the Kevin jumpsuit for men or the dress jumpsuit for women. You can also get the Dave or Stuart minion costumes for men or women.
The little girls in the movie have some costumes as well. One of these is the Agnes costume. You can find these with the jumpsuit and some have the wig with the stand up hair included.
One of the funny villain costumes that you can get is the Balthazar Bratt one. This costume is usually a brightly colored jumpsuit, gloves and the hairpiece. Some of them will also include the thick moustache and eyebrow pieces - but not all of them will.
