This minion cost about $6 to make. I used white poster board, hot glue, foam, felt,  and jean. I made this for my son, he also wanted to be Sonic which you can find on this site too. The Sonic took my awhile, this costume only took a couple days and I let it dry overnight before decorating it. www.JJsHalloweenOutlet.com

Step 1: Step 1 Paper Mache Body

I used plastic chicken wire to make a form for the paper mache head. It would be easier to just use a large balloon. I used about 5 layers and let it dry over night. I then glued and taped white poster board to form the body. I cut the arm holes and let my son try it on. I ended up paper macheing the entire thing because the post board just wasn't strong enough. Next time I will just use cardboard.

Do you happen to have a picture of how you cut the yellow fabric? I'm trying to visualize but cannot figure out how you did it.

that is really awesom I luv this
Thanks so much!!
This is super cute! I didn't know you could get plastic chicken wire, I've used the metal before to create large forms, but it kills hands after a while. I'm so excited to learn of a new material!! Nice work!
Thanks so much!! I probably won't use the plastic chicken wire again, it didn't hold it's shape well. I will use a balloon or a beach ball next time. Good luck, I'd love to see it when you're done!!!
Thanks Mom, you're Awesome!
Lol thanks!
