If you didn’t see the Despicable Me movies, stop right here, go see them and come back a normal person! The second movie reminded everybody that the minions are the coolest thing that happened to humanity in the last years and, believe it or not, many people (including me) started to research Minion language and even learn a few words. And every time such monumental phenomenon happens to bless our mortal souls, it is no wonder that every man, woman and child out there wants either a live Minion (me included), a toy – one or at least a Minion – inspired something. Luckily, commerce is a kind monster and since there are a few quite interesting trends inspired by the Minions, you can now feel the joy of wearing them (yeah, that sounds a bit odd, but it’s true) in ways not even Gru may have thought about.
So, Bello! friends and followers, and let’s see together not only five trends inspired by the Minions, but also some fun ways to keep our inner child happy and, why not, make some excellent gifts to others whose hearts belong now to the quirky yellow bunch.
1. Minion Cupcakes
Buy them or bake them, it’s your choice, but I would really want to see if you have the heart to eat them too. Some very crafted bakers managed to make the little cakes look so good and mirror so perfectly the Minions’ faces and expressions, that eating them would feel like against nature or something. Nonetheless, it’s one of the trends inspired by the Minions and one cannot fight this cuteness overload.
2. Minion Slippers
I know a few people (and they are all grown – ups) who would die to have a pair of these. Actually a few of them would also squeal, clap, jump up and down and renew their vows of “friends forever” to whomever would gift them such a delicious pair of slippers. Not sure they would actually wear them in order not to get them messy or broken, but if you have Minion obsessed friends, try this and you won’t be sorry.
3. Minion Nails must be one of the hottest trends inspired by the Minions
I’ve never seen many ladies painting their nails in “Batman” and not even “Loki”, but when it comes to Minion fashion trends, the nail – focused industry knows a revival like it never knew before.
Not only that the cosmetic industry released products that are specially designed to get the perfect Minion nails, but it also provides the ladies with tutorials to teach them how to nail the art!
4. Minion Crochet Hats
Now look at them and tell me you don’t feel tempted to get one for yourself or for the kids. Some parents actually bought the full costumes, but the hats make one of the most delicious trends inspired by the Minions. You can buy them or knit them yourselves, it really doesn’t matter, as long as they manage to capture the Minions’ essence.
5. Minion Phone Case
This may be one of the most popular trends inspired by the Minions and it really doesn’t matter what type of smartphone you own, you will most certainly find a suitable case for it. From iPhones to all the types and sub-types of Samsung cells, manufacturers out there made sure that you will have your Minion case at prices that defy all logic. From less than a dollar to almost $15, the Minion inspired phone cases are as many as people’s creative ideas.
You can go a little further with the research and find poolside fluffy Minion bathrobes, Minion birthday cakes, Minion costume printable and all, but these five trends inspired by the Minions are probably the most popular. Hope you felt inspired also and found a few interesting ideas to treat yourself or make the others around you happy!
