Idea 2: Holy Guacamole Pun Costume

So cute! Add a modern twist to the traditional angel wings and halo by adding the three iron-on avocado patches to whatever outfit you’re rocking. We needed extra guac—so feel free to bust out the puffy paints if you do, too. And if you’re looking for a cute and funny costume pairing for you and your BFF, go for the Oh Deer costume accessory kit.

Idea 3: A minions costume idea you'll go ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-na-nas for!

Kanpai! Gather your friends this Halloween to dress up as Gru's trusty little yellow sidekicks! Create your Minion ensemble with a yellow shirt, blue suspenders, a blue tutu or blue shorts, black gloves, yellow socks, and a pair of goggles. With various baby and dog Minion costumes, everybody can dress up as Bob, Dave and the rest of the bunch. The more Minions the merrier! Complete your Despicable Me group costume by carrying around some bananas!

Have a friend throw on the Tina wig and dress and watch them shake the night away! To add an extra creative touch, carry around spatulas and prop burgers.
