The wardrobe of the ogre from the swamp wears plaid patterned leggings paired with the white tunic shirt and the brown vest. If you feel uncomfortable with the leggings, try sweat pants or regular brown pants. Put on a long sleeved white shirt on top and then cut a vest from a felt fabric. Wear green gloves or socks for the hands. You can use a rope around the waist and then complete the look with brown boots.
For the head, Shrek has green head, so you may want to apply a green facial paint in your face. You can use a stretchable thin skin rubber wraps from costume shops for that bald look. You don’t want to miss out on the palpable ears of the green ogre. He has these rounded tubular ears on the sides of his head, parallel to his eyes. You can cut an ear shape from fun foam, creating stems 3 inch long and 1 inch wide, with an obvious rounded bulb at the end.
Of course, if you don’t want to bother with facial paint and all the work for the ears, you can just get the distinguishable Shrek masks available from online costume shops.
