Concept: Create a full minion costume for a 7 year old, that is light weight and full. The over the shoulder straps make it easy to wear and walk for getting candy

Materials and tools used with links
2 x sheets of sytrofoam from Homedepot, I have found the latest model of jigsaws are available for much less, i look for the grip size for precision while cutting.

Character Sketch

Sketched up a drawing of a minion to project onto cardboard (tracer projector). you can shrink the drawing and print it out for getting the right size to project

Projecting the image onto cardboard
Image projector I reused a large piece of cardboard from an IKEA standup desk box to trace the body outline of my child while laying on the ground

to get the correct proportions when projecting the drawing

That is just the cutest and it looks like she really likes it :D

Totally awesome! The build technique is a bit like the ducted-fan flying machine they built in Mythbusters. This costume looks amazing. All the best for collecting lots on Halloween :-)
