I thought I was done with Steven Universe themed tutorials but new episodes have been released with a whole host of new characters and it would be criminal not to cover them in a blog post each.
Today we’ll be looking at how to create your own Blue Pearl Steven Universe costume from scratch as there are no official cosplays available for sale at the time of writing and foreseeable future.
Blue Diamond’s Pearl (Blue Pearl) is a Gem who makes their début in the episode “The Answer”. Fans have expressed their desire to dress as the character online so I thought this tutorial would be fitting.
Blue Pearl Steven Universe Wig
Let’s get down to business, we’ll start from the top and work our way down their outfit. So begin with a wig, chances are your hair isn’t naturally blue so you’ll either need to dye it or wear a wig in a similar style to the one above.
The next thing you’ll want to do if cover your whole evenly with blue body paint, alternatively wear a blue zentai suit instead to get easy full coverage. We don’t even see Blue Pearl’s eyes in the show as they are covered by her bangs, this may be difficult to pull off in real life though so include this detail at your discretion.
Blue Pearl Costume
Let’s move onto Blue Pearl’s outfit and there are two components to put together, the blue bodysuit and blue skirt. Keeping with the colorscheme add a blue strapless ruched bodysuit and a long chiffon skirt to complete the look.Check out your local thrift store for these two items if you prefer to shop offline.
The last but by certainly no means least detail to add is a gem, each character from Steven Universe has a different colored gem and Blue Pearl is no exception. It took a lot of digging but here is the perfect choice a silver acrylic oval gem that you can apply to the same area using eyelash glue. You could find these at local offline craft stores for a few dollars too.
Blue Pearl may be a minor character at the minute, only featuring in a few episodes but the reaction has been positive and I’m sure tons of fans will want to dress as them for cosplay and Halloween, either way it’s a choice that’s obscure so you’ll stand out and be unique but one that has a recognizability factor too so people know who you’re dressed as!
