DIY Despicable Me 2 Halloween Costumes

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.  It has gotten even more fun since having children, as (at least at this age) they are all about it!  We have had fun the last few years doing themed costumes as a family (pirates two years ago and Avengers characters last year).  This year, the kids are all about Despicable Me.  The little ones voted that our family would be characters from Despicable Me 2. The kids will be minions (naturally), my husband will be Gru, and I will be Anti-Villain League agent Lucy Wilde.
 
These costumes were pretty easy to DIY, so DIY I did!  Here are the components for each of our costumes.  Don't forget to share and pin, and comment if you have any questions!

DIY Despicable Me 2 Minion Costume:
  1. Goggles (got these ones from Amazon)
  2. Yellow hoodies (got mine from Kohls, but any yellow hoodie will do) with pipe cleaners on top for hair
  3. Black gloves (can get these just about anywhere, but I got these ones from Amazon)
  4. Black shoes or boots (I found them at our local Wal-Mart)
  5. Blue denim overalls (got these ones from Amazon)
  6. Gru symbol, printed on iron-on photo sheets and ironed on.  You can easily fine the Gru symbol on Google images.
Look how cute the boys (oops, I mean minions) look for their costume trial run:
 
  

DIY Despicable Me 2 Lucy Wilde Costume:
  1. Red wig with bangs (I got this doll wig on Amazon)
  2. Pink and white polka dot scarf (I got this one from Amazon)
  3. Turquoise sunglasses (I got this one from Amazon)
  4. Turquoise trench coat (the one I got is no longer available, but is very similar to this adorable one from Amazon
Here is how the costume came together (without the wig):


DIY Despicable Me 2 Gru Costume:
  1. Bald cap (purchased from our local Halloween costume pop-up store)
  2. Black and gray striped scarf (got this one from Amazon)
  3. Black shirt. A black zip-up shirt is ideal, but we went for a simple Gru costume here.
  4. Optional: pointy nose (also from your local Halloween store)

Here's how the whole family's looks came together (the little one decided not to wear his goggles for the picture):

Would you consider selling some of your pieces? Specifically the teal trench coat, glasses, and red wig. Also interested in some Gru items. Thanks!

For minion pieces: ISO size 4, 5 or 6. Our family is planning this costume for 2015.
