Being Fiona Shrek was one of the best times I ever had. The costume was way easier than I thought it was going to be and I won first prize at both parties that I attended!
I started off this Homemade Fiona from Shrek Costume with buying the green dress for $10 at a thrift store and altering a old green turtle neck for Fiona’s dress. Gold ribbon from Michaels! The rest of the costume was very easy as well. The crown was made out of brown pipe cleaners, the ears were molded out of that Crayola Fluff stuff, and just painted green! I molded them around pipe cleaners and pinned them to my head. I have short hair so I actually used snap in extensions that I had bought for a wedding I was in and sprayed my hair red. Not red at the costume store, but red that I bought at a hair store.
The paint is a mixture of green and white.. Fiona is not dark green! When doing my makeup, I studied her picture to get it as close as possiable.
I take pride in my Halloween costumes, and this was one of my bests!
