Shrek is the academy award winning animated film created by DreamWorks in 2001. Three more sequels were made in the Shrek series, Shrek 2 (2004), Shrek the Third (2007), and Shrek, Forever After (2010). Shrek, known for it vast appeal to audience members of all ages, was voted by The American Film Institute as one of the Top 10 best animated films of all time.
Shrek, a peace-loving ogre lives quietly in a swamp. One day, Shrek is disturbed and perplexed to find his once quiet habitat invaded with Fairy Tale refugees. The fairy tale characters have been sent to live in the swampland by the cunning Lord Farquaad. Shrek, longing for the return of his peaceful existence decides to visit the Lord and see what he can do to restore order to the swamp.
In the meantime, Lord Farquaad has made a discovery that has him a bit worried. The Lord has discovered via the Magic Mirror that he is unable to become a real King unless he marries a princess. Shrek’s visit and request to cleanse the swampland of fairy tale characters is timed perfectly for the Lord. He conveniently tells Shrek that his request will be granted if he rescues the princess Fiona from the clutches of the fire-breathing dragon, and brings her promptly back so he can marry her immediately. An adventure ensues and eventually all truth must be known, including a secret that Fiona has been harboring of her very own.
If a Fairy Tale adventure with a humorous twist is what you are looking for this Halloween, the cast of characters from the film Shrek has lots of options for really great Halloween costumes. Ogres of all ages can recreate the lovable green Shrek or if your inner princess (before or after “the kiss”) wants to come out, Princess Fiona may be just the look you desire. These costume styles are taken from a kingdom far, far away, and are going to bring you the happily ever after ending you are dreaming of this Halloween!
