Minioning the Minions in Costume


The Minions are invading Halloween... again! They were one of the the most popular Halloween costumes of 2014. For 2015, they will be back on schedule after enjoying another epic summer filled with the lovable yellow minions, neighborhoods across the country will be spotting clusters of little yellow cylindrical shaped boys and girls going door-to-door on Halloween as they look for treats. Homeowners, upon hearing gibberish talk outside, will curiously open their doors, only to find small yellow characters in blue overalls and goggles standing eagerly on their threshold. As they hold their treat bags open, the mighty minions will giggle openly, their infectious laugh easily putting a smile on the homeowner's face as they give each minion a Halloween treat.


From the very first movie, Despicable Me, people young and old instantly fell in love with Gru's Minions. This army of yellow capsule shaped creatures captured the viewers' hearts with their lively innocence, open enthusiasm and hilarious antics.  As we will see in their new blockbuster movie, Minions, even when they are trying to be diabolical, the Minions easily turned even the most villainous crime into a comedy festival with their impulsive actions and childlike reactions.

While their origins were a mystery in the Despicable Me movies, the Minions Movie has shown how, with the dawn of time, came the dawn of the minions. These simple yet indestructible creatures, having innocently destroyed all of their previous masters including a T-Rex, Genghis Khan, Napoleon and Dracula, eventually meet Scarlett Overkill, the world's first female super villain. She recruits the innocent, gullible minions to help her take over the world. But the minions prove to be smarter than Scarlett thinks as they foil her plot and save the other minions from complete annihilation. Eventually, the minions will make their way into Gru's life as his loyal criminal sidekicks and family.
