Gru (Despicable Me) Costume


When you’ve seen the blockbuster movie “Despicable Me” at any point in your life, then there’s a good chance you’re familiar with the main antagonist.

At the beginning of the movie series, Gru is depicted as the evilest character. Still, once it goes on, you begin to see a more sympathetic part of him.

He realizes that being wicked isn’t always as glamorous as it’s made up in some situations.

You’ll Need:

  1. Black Full-Zip Cotton Jacket
  2. Turtleneck Pullover Sweater
  3. Slim Fit Dress Pant
  4. Soft Knit Striped Scarf
  5. Bald Cap
  6. Black Chelsea Boots
  7. Big Long Cyrano Nose

DIY Gru Costume Guide

It would be futile to attempt to become the most infamous bad guy on the planet without first adopting the appropriate appearance. 

To dress like the villain of Despicable Me, you’ll need Turtleneck Pullover Sweaters underneath Black Full-Zip Cotton Jacket. Put on Slim Fit Dress Pant and Men’s Chelsea Boots for the bottom. 

To complete the finishing touches on your Forrest Gump costume, you’ll need his Soft Knit Striped Scarf, Bald Cap, and Big Long Cyrano Nose. Now, you are ready to implement your villain plan! 

Gru Cosplay Costume

Unlike the traditional villain look, his outfits are more on the casual side. So dressing up as him is easy, as there may be certain pieces that you can find in your closet.

Nail the look with a gray turtleneck sweater, fitted dress slacks, a black zip-up jacket, and black boots.

 After that, you may need to purchase a bald cap and nose and pointed tip prosthesis. Wrap yourself with a striped scarf in gray and black, so the only thing lacking from your outfit will be the fantastic dialect that Steve Carell has. 

If you can track down your friends who are prepared to play the role of Agnes Gru, minions and Vector, this would have been an excellent outfit to add to a group costume!

About Gru from Despicable Me

Felonius Gru grew up in a family with a long history of malevolence. At one point in his life, Gru held the title of being the worst criminal in the history of humankind

Gru was only prepared to commit felonies and get notoriety for himself. Gru decided to conduct the heinous act of stealing the moon.

But his plan was finally foiled, and he ended up being the adoptive father of three girls, Margo, Agnes, and Edith.

At first, he viewed the girls as nothing more than puppets in his evil schemes. He ultimately reheated with the girls within a week of living with them for some time.

In the end, Gru decided to stay in the household with his children and transform his laboratory into a factory producing jelly.
