Chances are you’re a big Steven Universe fan like me if you’ve landed on this page, it’s been a while since I wrote a Steven Universe tutorial for the blog but today I’m fixing that by showing you how to put together your own Mystery Girl Steven Universe Costume from scratch.
Mystery Girl is a character we are introduced to in the fourth season of the show when the gang is at the Big Donut and she catches Pearl’s eye. Resembling Rose Quartz but with an edgier look consisting of lip ring and plaid jacket tied around her waist.
At the time of writing there are no official costumes available for this character so we’ll have to use a little imagination and creativity to get the result we want. We’ll be covering her hair, outfit and boots.
Mystery Girl Steven Universe Wig
The first thing to focus on is her hair, and as I said above this new character closely resembles Rose Quartz so logically you’ll need a pink wig. Alternatively if your natural hair is long enough you could simply dye your hair pink or use spray in color (for a less permanent change) to emulate this character hairstyle. Don’t forget to add a silver lip ring as Mystery Girl wears throughout the series, in line with her trendy style. She also has three earrings on her ear that are often out of view behind her locks of pink hair.
Mystery Girl Steven Universe Cosplay
Now let’s move onto her clothing and the first thing we notice is her unique style. Wear a white short sleeved shirt or crop top with a green plaid shirt wrapped around your waist. Another detail to add is the cat design on her white top, using a reference image to guide you draw on the cat outline using a black Sharpie or fabric pen.
Only a few more items to add now. Keeping with her alternative style you’ll need a pair of black ripped skinny jeans. You can purchase a pair pre-ripped for less hassle or pick up an in-ripped pair for a few dollars at the thrift store and add your own tears. The final item is a pair of black lace up combat boots which you could also buy at the thrift store.
As a big fan of Steven Universe there are many other tutorials based on the show on the blog so be sure to check them out. This would make a perfect idea for group cosplays for friends or families! Before you leave make sure you follow us on social media for updates on new posts.
