Best Amethyst Costume Guide
As a member of the Crystal Gems and one of the last known Gems to be manufactured on earth as part of the Gem Homeworld’s Kindergarten project, Amethyst is quite the unique character. The character from Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe show is the perfect choice for a costume if you want one that stands out for Halloween! Because Amethyst stayed in the ground for an extra 500 years, she’s shorter than many of the other Quartz Gem soldiers (just about the same as Steven Universe) and has a bit of a stocky build. What really makes her stand out though is her purple hue that matches with her gem. Get the look of one of the last surviving Gems on earth with this Amethyst costume guide.
To cosplay Amethyst’s look, you’ll need a few things like a cut glass diamond jewel, purple star patch, long hair wig, black fitness crop top, grey tunic tank top, black leggings and knee-high white boots to finish off the looks.
Amethyst Cosplay Costumes
While finding the items needed for your Amethyst costume may seem pretty easy, it’s putting it all together that can be the tricky part. For cosplay, you need a look that’s effortless while still looking tough. Just like Amethyst, you need to be able to pull off the purple look well. When purchasing a similar wig, try your best to find one that’s light purple in color just like Amethyst’s hair. Similar clothing should be easy to find in your closet or perhaps a friends. You can always create a star patch yourself if you’re creative enough.
To create a group cosplay that involves Amethyst and the other Crystal Gems from the show Steven Universe, we recommend finding a few friends who are willing dress as Steven Universe, Pearl, Jasper, and Ruby to make the look even closer to the show. We’d love to see how creative you get while creating this Gem’s outfit! Don’t hesitate to send over a few photos of your finished costume so we can feature it in the cosplay gallery to inspire others dress up like Amethyst.
Often used as the comic relief on the Cartoon Network Steven Universe show, Amethyst is a carefree character who is full of laughter and fun. She tends to be judged by Pearl quite often for her lazy and foul mouth. But, you’ll see that she’s a very protective and loyal character beyond the negative attitude. Amethyst is usually the one who will entertain Steven Universe more than the other Gems. She is usually willing to partake in human activities with him.
While Amethyst may be carefree the majority of times, she also has quite a bit of self-loathing due to her origins in the Kindergarten and the dark past that it holds. Amethyst ends up feeling out of place compared to the other Gems generally feeling inadequate compared to Pearl or Garnet. Amethyst’s self-esteem is pretty low and when she feels down, she can get pretty cold and cranky with others.
