Who can resist these cute little yellow minions?
When these little minions appeared in the big screens back in 2010, they took the world by storm for their cute, random and hilarious characters are loved by many. Be it adults, kids, male or female, everyone knows them! So what more to do a clay miniature charm for these minions?
What are minions?
A rambunctious bunch of simple-minded beings, the Minions are a similar size and shape, but have unique features to tell them apart, such as height, number of eyes, roundness or secondary features such as hair, eye/pupil size or clothing. They choose to express themselves through actions, not words: their “language” is fairly basic, they speak in a strange jabber; except for the odd human word every now and again and occasional Spanish-sounding words like “Para tú” (roughly “for you”), their language is incomprehensible to most humans, though they do understand English. It is also possible to isolate elements of Japanese from their speech patterns. – Credit
Above is the picture I used as inspiration. The thin-one-eyed minion and the fat-naughty minion.
They are really tiny, smaller than a Singapore 10c coin. I’m really proud of this but the only thing is that the strands of hair kept falling out as it is pretty flimsy. It took me quite a while to get the colours right but overall, I’d say I did quite a good job? No..?
Oh yes, and getting it to stand isn’t easy too! Look how ‘botak’ (bald) this minion looks? I think at least 5 out of the 8 strands of hair are out, and it’s rather hard for me to glue it back as this clay miniature charm is really, really small. I took about 2 hours to make the two charms. How do you like it?
Despicable Me opens in cinemas July 3 2013 by the way. Can’t wait to catch it! Shall wear them during the preview/premiere perhaps?
