In the movie Despicable Me, the Minions make Agnes a unicorn toy that they call "Papoy". Agnes is happy to have her unicorn, even if it isn't fluffy. What minion costume would be complete without a home made Papoy?
After studying screen shots and video of the movie scene I had a good idea of the parts I would need. The unicorn appears to be made from a toilet brush and ping pong ball with an ice cream cone for a horn. The hardest part to find by far was a generic looking white toilet brush with BLUE bristles. I'm fairly certain no one actually makes one. I finally found a plain looking white one at Target that was a good size and shape.
Everything else I found at my local craft store. Here is the list.
- Burlap paper (thin sheet of actual burlap glued to paper)
- Styrofoam Cone from the floral section
- Ping Pong Balls!
- Googly Eyes (large)
- Transparent floral card holder
- Optionally, you will need Blue/Purple dye or paint to color the toilet brush
I spent maybe $7 on the toilet brush and another $20 buying the remaining supplies.
You will also need the following tools.
- Hot Glue Gun
- Black marker (sharpie)
