If I let my son pick movies, costumes, decorations, or any other themed thing, there was a time when he would always choose Minions. I think I was so familiar with Minions at that point in my life that I spoke Minionese fluently. And with Halloween on the horizon, I can only imagine how many other kids (or parents) are as obsessed with Minions as my son. So if you're looking for last minute minion costumes, you've come to the right place.
Luckily, creating a Minion costume from scratch may not be as difficult as it seems. A lot of the items you can use for your kids, babies, toddlers, or even yourself, are already sitting around your home. Props like bananas, teddy bears, and goofy string hair can be improvised easily, especially in a place with kids' toys hanging around. So the options you have before even looking outside your own home may take care of the majority of your costume already.
There are, however, several creative ways to go with this costume, depending on whether you're considering DIY, crochet, regular clothing, or full-on costume garb. Whichever route you choose this Halloween, take a minute to scroll through the best options, tutorials, and ideas for your Minion costume, big or small.
