If you’ve watched any movies in the theater lately, you may have seen a short clip of the Minions from Despicable Me sitting happily waiting for a movie to start. Then bumbles in this horribly mannered purple and wild looking Minion to proceeds to cause a huge ruckus and even eat a cell phone from another minion’s hand! That purple minion is a secret preview of the characters from the new 2013 Despicable Me film. In it, Gru’s regular minions are kidnapped and injected with a purple serum which turns them into these bad mannered evil purple minions with wild hair, gray overalls (instead of blue), and their boss Eduardo’s thunder bolt “M” insignia across the middle. Get yourself the wildest and craziest purple hair wig to complete the costume. Either purple body paint or a completely purple wardrobe can finish the look depending on how accurately you want to approach the purple minion character. Like the regular minions, the purple minions wear the same one or two eyed goggles. If you’d rather opt for a pre-made costume, we recommend this one for kids. The next best thing would be to carry this Purple Minion plush doll around with you as an accessory.
And here it is for kids, officially licensed and everything. No wild purple hair but maybe you could throw on a wig as an add-on yourself. → Click here to buy.
