##Instructions:##

Step 1: The main part of the costume will be the dress. A Renaissance dress offers a rounded neckline with a pointed waistline. You may also have a slight puff to the long sleeves. The skirt of the dress should be a simple line with the material reaching the ankles. You can find a dress or create one from a pattern. To truly make the costume you will most likely want to get the proper material and pattern to create your own. The color of the dress is up to you it can be blue, pink, white, green, or even brown.

Step 2: The shoes of the costume should be leather slippers, but you can really wear anything as the skirt should cover the ankles and the shoes for the most part.

Step 3: The rest of the costume will be for the head. Princess Fiona has long red hair. This means your wig should extend to the waist and be in a braid or ponytail. To top the wig you will need a crown to symbolize you are Princess Fiona rather than a Renaissance character.

To be an ogre you would need the ogre face and green body. Ogre Princess Fiona is also a bit rounded than her regular body, which may mean padding needs to be added to the overall costume.
