Vector Costume Tips & FAQs

Unleash your inner supervillain with our Vector costume guide FAQ. Transform into the cunning antagonist from “Despicable Me” as we answer your questions about creating the perfect Vector ensemble.

To create Vector's outfit, you'll need an orange jumpsuit or tracksuit, a white short-sleeved turtleneck or mock neck shirt, white socks, and white sneakers. Don't forget to add a pair of black-framed glasses to complete the look.

Vector has a bowl-cut hairstyle with straight bangs. If your hair is long enough, you can have it cut and styled to match Vector's look. Alternatively, you can purchase a black bowl-cut wig and trim the bangs to the appropriate length.

Look for a pair of large, square or rectangular black-framed glasses with clear lenses. Make sure the frames are thick and prominent, as this is a distinctive feature of Vector's appearance.

For a DIY Vector costume, you can use an orange tracksuit or pair an orange zip-up jacket with matching pants. Wear a white mock neck or turtleneck shirt underneath. To create Vector's black glasses, you can use black cardstock or foam to cut out the frames and attach clear plastic or acetate for the lenses. Secure the frames to your face with an elastic band or use an existing pair of glasses as a base.

To elevate your Vector costume, consider carrying a toy version of the "squid launcher" or the "piranha gun" as seen in the movie. You can also create a replica of the stolen moon using a foam ball painted gray, or hold a fake "Shrink Ray" device.

About Vector

Vector Perkins from Despicable Me 2 is an ambitious little fellow who wears his signature orange jumpsuit. He is a scientific genius capable of creating some highly innovative weapons, most notable of which is his squid gun. He is the son of the owner of the Bank of Evil, Mr. Perkins. He is a masterful scientist and a mathematical genius. Yet, his behavior is childish. He gets angry very easily and is easily provoked.

His eccentricities include his love for cookies which deviates from the whole “I am evil” theme he’s got going on. In addition, Vector is also fascinated by sea life. He has a pet shark and has invented weapons such as the Piranha gun and the Squid launcher. He is also extremely rich thanks to his father’s ownership of the Bank of Evil. But even though their family is rich, they do not share a father and son bond. His father isn’t proud of his achievements and Vector himself is afraid to show his true self to his father.
