Minion Costume DIY: My child the Minion Star

Hey everyone!
I’m super excited to make this post. If you don’t know, I make my child home made costumes every year and they are usually the bomb. Im not making this up.

This year he wanted to be a minion. Kevin to be exact. And my wonderful photographer Tristan took photos while I made it. I will try my best to explain everything and some photos appear to be lost, but I feel like I have enough.

Let’s just get into the tutorial This is super easy! 🙂

Take two pieces of poster board and form them into a cylinder and duck tape the ends together.  After blowing up the punching balloon, set it in the cylinder made of poster board and duck tape it, like so…

Get a lot of free news papers, and cut them into short and long strips.

IMG_7113IMG_7115

Mix water and flour together and dip the strips of newspaper in the homemade paste concoction you just whipped up.  Place strips of newspaper on the balloon/posterboard mold you just made. Make sure its a thick, sturdy layer of newspaper glue. This is called paper machete.  Allow to dry for about 24 hours.

After the glue dries, pop the balloon. And paper machet the opening. Allow to dry. 

Paint the minion yellow. I used Rustoleum in Sunburst Yellow with a brush for a little bit 
IMG_7431 IMG_7440  IMG_7442 IMG_7438

before switching to yellow Rustoleum spray paint and going outside. You just need to make a nice yellow minion.

  
After the minion is painted, allow it to dry.

 Lets make Kevin’s glasses.

  
You’ll need white foam, black foam, and sticky yellow foam. I got this Minion Eye notebook from target.  All you need is the minion eyeballs, you can print a photo out online. You will need two half foam balls,  two screw on lids to a jar, and a hot glue gun.

IMG_7824 IMG_7821 IMG_7820 IMG_7826

You need to take the yellow foam and cut it into a shape to form an eyelid to the eyeballs.  Make two of them.

Next, Take the backing off the yellow foam.

IMG_7873 IMG_7874

form the yellow half circles around the half foam balls.  Remember these are eyelids, use common sense and don’t be afraid to google photos of Kevin for a reference.  

IMG_7878 IMG_7882 IMG_7889 IMG_7888 

Cut out eyeballs and glue them wear they should be.  

 Glue the half foam circle with yellow foam on it, into the screw on cap to a jar. Use extra glue to ensure that it doesn’t fall apart.  That would be embarrassing for the child. well, for me it would have been lol.

 IMG_7920 IMG_7903

  
Cut off excess yellow foam. Do these steps twice. Then you’ll glue the two eyes together. 

   
 Cute strips from the black foam. To make the strap for the glasses. 

  

Next we need to cut some holes. Measure it on whoever is wearing it for arm holes and seeing holes through the mouth of the minion. Try to estimate the distance from the eye to mouth based off of the minion you are making. Look up a picture of your minion smiling with teeth to mimick the shape of his smile. Draw on the shape of overalls for your minion and get it all mapped out. 

 

  
    
Using blue paint, paint the overalls of your minion. It needs about two coats. 

  
Next take the white foam and cute out some teeth.  Glue all teeth together from the sides, then place them in your minions mouth with glue on the front side of the teeth.   
   
   
Next glue the eyes on.

  
The photos got deleted 😩 but glue the black straps on to make a band for the glasses. Take blue foam board and make straps for the overalls. Glue on two black buttons on each end. I spray painted yellow over all the pencil marks. Take to foam half circles and paint them yellow. Cut sits in the to fit in minions arms. This is to help the costume stay up on whoever is wearing it.  

  

You’ll need a long sleeve yellow shirt (I got this from Walmart, it also came with a hat), some blue jeans, black gloves, and black shoes. Then, all you need to do is get dressed!  And admire your minion! Let me know if anyone tries this and tag me in yor photos 😊 

We recently went to my moms work and everyone loved this! The amount of attention we got was overwhelming! Tristan is so happy with his costume! 😊

This channel is here for me to hopefully share all the education I’ve learned with skin and health care. I also love beauty! I have watched beauty videos on Youtube for over 5 years. I went to school for esthetics to learn how to be a makeup artist and fell in the love with the other side of it, the side I never thought I could love and then learned it was my passion all along. From then I worked as a skin care specialist first hand with a dermatologist.

I now stay at home with my son on a farm. It gets lonely from time to time and with my love of talking I figured I could combine the two, put myself up on camera, and with any luck someone will take the time to share my knowledge with me. I hope you all want to get to know me as much as I want to know all of you 🙂

How I apply false eye lashes-Super easy

I like to use duo lash adhesive and eyelure 101 false eyelashes. You’ll also need an empty spoolie. I recommend using an old wand from Benefits they’re real mascara cause it is my favorite, but any wand will do just wash it with dish soap. 

  
Apply the duo lash adhesive right on your lash line. 

  
Comb eyelashes with the spoolie to make sure there aren’t any clumps. 

  
Grab the eyelash with a pair of tweezers in the inner corner. Make sure you grab the correct eyelash from the package and put it on the correct eye. They are labeled in the package but you can usually tell which is which. The shorter eyelashes are usually the inner part of the eyelash. If you need to trim the eyelashes trim them from the outer corner. 

  
Line the false eyelash up with your real eyelash where you put the glue and hold it in place for a few seconds.

  
Then it’s just hanging there by the corner. Lipstick on my chin. I can’t seem to wear lipstick like an adult 😂

  
With tweezers, grab the outer corner and pull it slightly, bring it over to the outer corner of your eye. Press and hold for a few seconds.

  
With tweezers, pinch your real eye lash and false eyelash together at the root. This should secure the eyelash in place better, as well as making them a little more comfortable 😊

  
Apply eyeliner I like essence felt tip eyeliner. I also like going over the top to ensure the lashes are in place. 

  
Apply mascara to the root of your eyelashes. I like to get a little mascara on the false lashes, but not to much. Just enough to adhere the false lashes and your real lashes together a little bit more . Don’t put mascara on the tips of your false lashes. 
Try this out and let me know how it works for you! If you learned anything from this post please share it 😊 see you all next time!

So far, I love these hair extensions! I am still working on blending them, but for the most part, I love them! I am currently wearing them longer than I would prefer to ensure that I do not cut to much off of them.

Lorac Contour Palette: http://goo.gl/6V5te6

This palette has been controlling my life since the day I got it. The contour colors are mostly cool toned which is perfect for contouring, but are still a bit warm and combined the three create a wonderful work of art!

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundatin in 150: http://goo.gl/0FDxnE

This foundation looks great from the moment I put it on, until the moment I take it off at night. It is great.

Although it is less “shimmery” than I had expected, So far his palette give me the lit from within glow! I especially love the bottom row of two blushes, and a bronzer.

FAVORITE EYESHADOW OF LIFE RIGHT HERE!!!! Im not sure if its just the color with my eyes or what, but I can’t ever get enough of this eyeshadow. I do covered it from my first tipsy bag I received several years ago and have never turned by back since.

Rimmel Eyeliner in exaggerate: http://goo.gl/bQN7pP

I like that this eyeliner stays well on my water line. I also think the color is almost perfecter a drugstore nude eyeliner, not to orange or peachy. I like the blending sponge on the other end it is very convenient.

Wet N Wild Lipstick Spiked with Rum: http://goo.gl/XGO2SB

I love this lipstick for an inexpensive fall color that doesn’t make my teeth look yellow.

Tarte Smooth Operator Loose Powder: http://goo.gl/MevRP8

On days when I don’t use smooth operator, I usually don’t even like my makeup that day. This fills in my pores to give that flawless finish. I love setting my makeup with it. Its translucent so the color works for everyone, I prefer to loose powder form to really work the powder into my skin by pressing, but they do offer a pressed powder as well.

Eyelure Fase Eyelashes in Volume 101: http://goo.gl/pfW8rB

I can’t stop. This was a game changer. This ups my look, and I can get my makeup on so much quicker with out having to pile on mascara. Some days I still opt for that look, but it is just not the same. These eyelashes are so natural and pretty, no one even looks at me like they think I have false eye lashes on, they just can’t stop staring at my eyes. I use Ardell brush on Lash Adhesive
to apply them because it has a brush on it and is super easy!
