Steven Universe has gotten a whole host of new characters in the last few episodes of season two, gearing up for the release of season three in May 2016. Yellow Pearl was one such character added to the lineup that I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of next season.
Yellow Pearl is only a minor character introduced to us in the episode ‘Message Received’. Appearing as Yellow Diamond’s pearl working as a receptionist and taking her calls.
We’ve been adding new Steven Universe cosplay guides all this week on the blog and today is no exception as I show you how to create your own Yellow Pearl Steven Universe costume from scratch considering there are no official outfits available at the time of writing and foreseeable future.
Yellow Pearl Wig
First let’s begin at the top and work our way down. Yellow Pearl is seen sporting a yellow pixie cut hairstyle that points upwards in a bob style. Unfortunately it’s difficult to find yellow colored items we need for this cosplay and the best wig I found would need extra styling using plenty of hairspray to keep it in place and give it that pointed bob look you’re going for.
Yellow Pearl Cosplay
Her outfit is made up of several different elements noted as a pale peach maillot body suit, long yellow tights and ballet style flats. This is tricky to replicate in the real world as Yellow Pearl also has yellow skin so you want to mimic that effect without showing skin.
As an easy solution wear a yellow tank top along with a pair of yellow tights in the same color to cover your body excluding your head and arms then apply yellow body paint with a large sponge to fill in the gaps i.e your arms and face, adding yellow lipstick to emphasize your lips if you’d like.
To create Pearl’s ruffled shoulder sleeves gather two medium length segments of yellow chiffon fabric and tuck these into the shoulders of your zentai suit so they blossom out. Finish with a pair of pale yellow flats and you’re done.
Yellow Pearl Gem
Every character from Steven Universe has a gem that is unique to them and the originator of their respective powers. Yellow Pearl’s gem comes in the form of a silver oval on her chest area. I recommend applying this with eyelash glue.
