I’ve added tons of new Steven Universe guides to the blog last month and seeing as they’ve already proven popular I’m continuing today with another this time looking at how to create your own Sardonyx Steven Universe cosplay from scratch.
There are no official costumes at the time of writing but with a little creativity we can put together a convincing outfit.
She has short peach colored hair styled into a triangular shape, wears a black tailcoat tuxedo, purple leggings and white gloves on her four arms, a pink bow tie and a pair of purple spectacles showcasing her four eyes.
Sardonyx Steven Universe Wig
We’ll start from the top and work our way down so everything flows nicely. Begin with a wig, as mentioned above Sardonyx hair is styled as a peach colored triangle. Harder to pull of in real life though thanks to good old gravity so check out the peach wig above that’ll work just aswell.
Makeup is optional, I’ve seen cosplays with and without it although if you want an authentic touch pant your face and arms completely with pink body paint covering your hands with white gloves and body with the rest of the outfit.
Remember Sardonyx’s alien style sunglasses? You’ll also need a pair of those, these are purple in the television show and another item that was impossible to find. Adapt the glasses above with purple pen or paint or wear them as is, the other elements of the outfit below will keep your look recognizable even if this one detail is wrong.
Sardonyx Steven Universe Tuxedo
Let’s move onto her tuxedo suit, this comes in two parts. We want a standard black tuxedo jacket, the one above is perfect for this as it stopped at your waist and will work well alongside the cup bodysuit also linked above. You could also pick up both items affordably at your local thrift store, if that’s your chosen route.
Sardonyx Steven Universe Costume
There are just a few more items to work through before we are done starting with a white sleeveless tuxedo shirt. Accent your shirt with an orange bowtie. You could also a pair of white gloves.
Another important element is her mauve and purple colored leggings, if you’re a stickler for detail go for two different shades lighter for the top portion and darker for the bottom half otherwise solid purple leggings will work just fine.
Sardonyx Steven Universe Gem
Every character from Steven Universe has a gemstone placed somewhere on their body that gives them the super powers they need to protect Earth from alien threats. In this case Sardonyx gemstone is located in the centre of her forehead and both her palms.
A similar stone like the one pictured above can be conveniently glued to your head with lash glue for easy removal later, you can include the palm stones if you want but be warned they’ll probably fall off if you have sweaty palms or during the course of the day.
As mentioned in the introduction there are tons of Steven Universe guides on the blog now and I haven’t finished adding them so check back often. For now don’t forget to check out our social media pages for updates on the newest guides as they’re published!
