Shrek costume is a blog about transforming your dog into the green ogre. It is a blog where every day I try to get my dog to talk, walk and act like Shrek. I try to make him look and feel more like the green ogre, so he can become the mascot of the holiday.
I am writing this post for all of you who wanted to know how you can make a Shrek costume for your dog. It is not easy at all but it looks cool when you have done it. You will have to get creative with your dog’s body and his or her head and accessories. Also, you need a lot of patience and practice in order for Shrek costume to look real.
So here we are with our Shrek costumes for dogs in hand! You may also check out some similar costumes by our readers on facebook or on twitter pages.
A lot of people are surprised to learn that there is a real, live ogre named Shrek. We have done some research and concluded that most of the questions you ask your dog’s veterinarian aren’t the sort of thing that a human vet questions. So we’ve decided to start a blog about our dog’s transformation into the green ogre. We hope it will help other people with dogs who wonder whether their dogs might transform into something like Shrek.
If it turns out that this blog is not helpful, we will shut it down, but we’re not sure yet if that’s going to happen.
Our dog is an Airedale terrier; he is over 6 feet tall, has blue eyes and black hair, and weighs 75 pounds. He started acting strange around Thanksgiving last year, so we took him to get his blood checked. He is a good boy and we love him very much, but he has the personality of a small ogre. His new name is “Shrek.”
If you are a dog person, you probably already know that dogs love costumes. You may not know that you can use your dog’s costume to help with your own costume. Your dog can be the green ogre, and you can be the little woman with the heart of gold.
Here is how to make a Shrek costume for your dog:
The page for the costume itself said it came in sizes for small dogs, medium dogs, and large dogs. I felt that was a little odd.
I did some googling, and found that it’s meant to be a costume for a dog that is considered to be a “Chihuahua-sized” dog, which is 4-5 pounds. That meant I had to use the smallest size, which was slightly larger than a 9-month-old Shrek.
The most important step in the costume process is choosing your dog’s hair. You need something strong and stretchy enough to get over Shrek’s head. Hair from a goat, or a pony, or any other animal that has hair as long as his neck would work.
You also need something transparent to look through when you’re putting on the mask. If he has fur on his face, that’s OK. And if he has puffy fur elsewhere, that’s OK too.
The other key component is the ogre’s boots: they have to be those kind of rubbery plastic things that are really hard to break into. They’re available in lots of colors, but black works best because it hides all kinds of flaws you might want to hide with makeup or gluing it on with duct tape.
In the movie Shrek, an ogre goes on a quest to rescue his beloved princess. In the end, he’s forgiven for having eaten her. But not before all the villagers sing his praises and go, “Oh, Shrek, you’re so noble!”
Well, today we can say that our dogs have been transformed into their favorite characters. They love to be dressed up in costumes. Here are some of their favorite costumes.

What Dog Costume Do You Want To Be This Year?
If you have a dog, you may have heard of this book. It’s called Shrek. There aren’t many books about dogs, and the ones there are tend to be things like Dog Whisperer or Animal Wise, which teach the dog tricks or how to stay calm in the car or behave in public when you’re feeling nervous.
But Shrek is different. It isn’t a book that teaches or explains. It’s not a how-to manual for dog trainers; it’s a story about a man named Shrek who becomes an ogre because he refuses to kill his own father.
The book is written by William Steig and illustrated by Peter Brown, and for years it was hard to find anyone who could read it aloud without laughing out loud. Maybe it shouldn’t have been: Maybe the book shouldn’t have been funny; maybe the joke should have been in what was happening to the characters and not in their reactions or behavior. But people read it anyway and got hooked: they couldn’t stop thinking about it and they could never get enough of hearing it again.
Shrek is one of those books that teaches you how to think: how to think about things that are obviously true but can be hard to see clearly. It makes you learn that
