With all the new Steven Universe characters I would need a week of blog posts just to cover them, and that’s exactly what I’m doing! As one of my favorite shows about a group of Gems with superpowers who protect Earth from their sleepy seaside town from extra-terrestrial threats.
Blue Diamond is a new character that is introduced to viewers in the episode ‘The Answer’ from season 2 and is a member of The Great Diamond Authority that commands the Gem race.
Today I’ll be giving you the low down on how to create your own Blue Diamond costume from scratch as there are no official cosplays available at the time of writing and for the foreseeable future.
Blue Diamond Wig
This is a fairly simple look, there are just a few different elements to put into place. To keep things flowing in a logical order we’ll start at the top and work our way down. So the first thing you’ll need is a long blue wig that goes well below your shoulders.
Now move onto applying face paint to your face and neck area aiming for a consistent coverage, we’ll cover hands below but you want to give the illusion you have a blue body like the character.
Blue Diamond Cosplay
Blue Diamond is covered head to toe in sweeping blue attire and you want to replicate that exactly with a long sleeved dress and hooded cloak combo, you don’t want any flesh showing to pull this off successful! Don’t forget gloves below to complete it.
Blue Diamond Gem
Just a few more accessories now before you’re completed. Blue Diamond has a blue body and therefore you want full coverage to give the illusion you have one too. We already have a dress and face paint in place all that’s left to add is a pair of blue fingerless satin gloves. Finish by adding Blue Diamond’s gem, paint this with blue acrylic and hand like a necklace visible at your chest area.
Blue Diamond may have only featured in two different episodes so far and season 2 may be over but season 3 is due to begin in May 2016 and I have a hunch we’ll be seeing more from these new Gems. I’ve already seen fans wanting to dress as her so come Halloween after the new season this could become a popular cosplay choice indeed.
