Yes. the title is correct.

I'm trying to figure out how to make a minion costume for my kids. Couple of problems with this.

1: I'm terrible at this stuff :P

but seriously I am. :D




OK, main issue I'm actually having is what to make the internal structure with. I've tried wire and its OK but very unwieldy. Anyone got any suggestions or ideas?
Was thinking of a foam outer skin which can then be painted yellow. Eyes etc are not really an issue. neither is clothing cos minions basically wear everything and anything.

1. You are an awesome dad.

2. Have you tried chicken wire? Would that be easier to handle?

3. Papier mache around the external structure and paint? Flour and water makes a perfect glue, my other half uses it for pinata making Could be a good thing for the kids to get involved with, then you are absolved of all artistic sins.

And if all else fails, something like this: http://imgur.com/gallery/X3Oms
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

How big are your kids?

I would say find some sort of barrel/pipe that they can fit inside and use it to build papier-mache around, then remove it when it's all dry.
