Want more Powerpuff Engineers? How about Ask an Engineer Despicable Me Minions puppets?
A favorite webshow is Adafruit's Ask an Engineer hosted by Limor "Ladyada" Fried and Phil Torrone. And working behind the scenes is Johngineer.
So why not do a mashup of Despicable Me minions and the awesome gang at Ask an Engineer. In Adafruit black, of course.

Step 1: If Geppetto went dumpster diving...
You need some cardboard
fabric, fleecy for the body, something else for the overalls and hands/shoes
googly eyes or just paint your own
a bit of fiberfill stuffing
glue and hot glue
sewing machine and/or serger for quick assembly and prototyping
fabric paint or other method to make the logo imprint on the overalls
CAUTION: No lasers here but there could have been. Learn how to operate a sewing machine and serger safely. Hot glue guns are hot, even the cooler low-temp ones, I know.
Step 2: I do eyes, just eyes...
Sketch out how big you want them.
Use that as a pattern to stiffen up with a couple of glued laminations of thin cardboard.
Build up a ring of cardboard around the eyes to form a set of goggles.
Papier mache or just glue paper over the exposed cardboard seams and laminations.
When dry, I used 3D fabric paint to add some details like rivets and the elastic band holder.
Paint with white acrylic or craft paint. You may need two coats with one as the base primer.
When dry, paint frame with metallic silver. Drybrush with black paint if you want dark goggles.
Hot glue in the googly eyes.
