Despicable Me 3, the most recent installation in the Despicable Me series, arrives in theaters on June 30. But if your little one goes gaga for unicorns, minions, and the battle of good versus evil, you probably already knew that. If you've been prepping for Despicable Me 3 ever since Despicable Me 2 was released in 2013, you just might need to know where to buy minions costumes for kids, so that you and your kid are both ready to kick back in those plush, comfy chairs, snack on some popcorn, and watch those funny little minions back on the big screen once more.
When I was growing up, years ago, everyone's favorite wizard eventually made his way to the big screen. Everyone dressed up as Harry Potter characters for Halloween, threw Harry Potter-themed birthday parties, and attended book launches donning their best wizard wardrobe. People loved those characters then — albeit perhaps in a slightly different way — as kids love those somewhat bizarre, gibberish-speaking, yellow pill-shaped minions now. Still, dressing up as your favorite character to go to the movie theater can inject a bit of pomp and circumstance to an otherwise routine moviegoing experience. It's fun. If your kid wants — or needs, please Mom? — a minion costume to wear for your Despicable Me 3 viewing, here's what you need to know about where to find them.
2Minion Dave Costume
3Minion Kevin Costume
4Stuart Minion Inflatable Costume
This very unique costume of Stuart the Minion might not be the best choice if you're looking for something to wear to a movie screening, since it would likely get in your way. It could, however, be good for a Despicable Me-themed party, Halloween, or dress-up on a Tuesday.
5Minion Bob Kids' Costume
6Kids Mel Minion Costume
This full-body onesie Mel costume is, according to the Spirit Halloween website, specific to Despicable Me 3, making it the perfect thing to don before heading to the theater. The costume comes with gloves and the headpiece, but you'll have to find your own minion-style shoes.
8Child Minion Dress Costume
9Kids Minion Dave Pullover Costume
This Minion Dave costume, like the other pullover costume, might not be the best choice if your child is looking for something that'll allow them to easily sit and move around. If Dave is their favorite of all the minions, however, they might be able to be swayed.
10Minion Dave Child Costume
If your kid wants to dress up as Dave the Minion, but they don't like the idea of a pullover costume, this might be just what they're looking for. A blue and yellow jumpsuit, with three-fingered gloves, headpiece, and goggles, this costume will have them movie-ready in no time.
12Minion Baby Clothing Set
For the infant that needs to dress up like a minion, look no further than this Minion baby set. It's comfortable enough for an infant who doesn't want to be constricted or dealing with itchy fabrics, but perfectly fitting for a screening of Despicable Me 3 or neighborhood trick-or-treating.
