Okay so Despicable Me the movie came very late here in Japan. The happy meal is available at McDonald’s right now so my students are very familiar with the Minion character. Next week in all my Halloween lessons, this will be my costume.
The key element of this costume is yellow yellow and yellow. I have to admit that my biggest struggle was finding this beanie. I almost resorted to a swimming cap or a bandana. Just when I was ready to give up, Rex found this in one of the shops at Vivere Yokohama called Octopus Army at ¥1,200.
The best part of this DIY is actually the jumper. I looked everywhere but I was not successful because I did not want to spend more than ¥1000 especially that it’s something that I won’t use. Rex and I up came up with this DIY the last minute.
1. I cut off my old jeans because most of my shorts are too short and I want to look conservative especially that I will be wearing this to my class.
2. The bottom part of the pants, cut it open and use that as a bib. Fold the hem and use fabric glue to stick it.
3. Tuck the bottom part of the bib to your shorts. Connect it with a suspenders and Voila! No stitch jumper!
