Homemade Shrek Costume Ideas

shrekIf you want to dress yourself or a child up as Shrek this year, but you want your costume to be homemade, here are some ideas as well as places to find photos that can help.

  • First, if you are not already bald, you will want to get a bald-head cap, like this one.
  • Next, you’ll need to paint yourself green, of course. Well, your face, at least. There is plenty of green Halloween makeup on the market, so that’s easy.
  • Third, create those strange Shrek ears that look like horns. Your best bet may be to get a plastic headband, then make ears and glue them to the headband. Wrap felt around pipe cleaners or other flexible wire to make ears that stick out. You could also buy one of these already made, though that takes away from the homemade aspect.

Cleveland, Ohio

cleveland-ohioCleveland, Ohio is a city located in Northeast Ohio. It is the second-largest city in Ohio (behind Columbus), and is the county seat and hub of Cuyahoga County, the most populous county in the state. Lake Erie borders Cleveland to the north.

According to U.S. census figures, Cleveland had a 2018 estimated population of 383,793, making it the 52nd largest city in the United States. The Cleveland-Elyria metropolitan statistical area, which includes Cleveland as well as its suburbs and other nearby cities, had an estimated population of 2,057,009, which ranks the Cleveland area at 31st among the largest metro areas in the country.

Cleveland was founded in 1796, when the Connecticut Land Company, which had purchased the area known as the Connecticut Western Reserve, first surveyed the area. (The Connecticut Western Reserve was originally undeveloped western land owned by the state of Connecticut.) Moses Cleaveland was an investor in the company and led the initial survey. The original village of Cleaveland was named after Moses (who never returned to Cleveland after this initial visit).

The reason for the change to the current spelling of “Cleveland” is not completely clear — one account says there was a misspelling of Moses Cleaveland’s name on the original map, another states that an early newspaper dropped the first “a” in the name in order to fit the name in its masthead.

United States Postal Service Rates

usps-eagleThe United States Postal Service, sometimes abbreviated as USPS, has a variety of rates based on the type of letter or package being delivered, with weight and speed of delivery being particularly important to the overall cost.

  • The standard first-class stamp rate (used on standard letter envelopes with a total weight under one ounce) is 55 cents. This is also the current cost of the “Forever” stamp, which can be used for this type of letter today and in the future, even if prices rise. (If you have a Forever stamp that was purchased at a price below 55 cents, it can still be used to send a standard-size letter.)
