The style of Sapphire from the Cartoon Network show, Steven Universe, takes a dedicated cosplayer and a fairly huge fan of the color blue. After Sapphire accidentally fuses with one of her guards, Ruby, she flees and joins the Crystal Gems. This costume guide can have you following in Sapphire’s blue footsteps at your next convention or costume party.
First, add a Sky Blue Long Curly Wig and some Snazaroo Face Paint. And for her gems, use Blue Sapphire Acrylic Gems. Get in costume with a Puff Sleeve Button Down Blouse, Cowl Neck Stretchy Top, Vintage Chiffon Maxi Skirt, and Long White Satin Dress Gloves. Use Royal Blue Permanent Fabric Dye to get the White Victorian Apron the same shade.
Cosplaying Sapphire’s look will consist mostly of blue pieces. If you’re having a hard time matching blues, any light colored garment can be dyed to a uniform blue. Her upper arms and face are a delightful shade of sky blue and can be pulled off using standard face paint from any costume shop. The only two pieces in her entire outfit that aren’t blue are her gloves and her apron. These pieces are of a starched white.
To truly make this look happen, the bangs of your blue wig need to cover your eyes. Sapphire only has one eye, which can easily be painted on as well but routinely, it is hidden behind her hair. If you’re looking to cosplay as a group, there are a fair number of fellow Steven Universe you can include like, Sapphires fusion partner Ruby, or their fusion form of Garnet. Naturally, someone can go as the title character Steven Universe too! Be sure to look at our featured pics. Send in your own and inspire other cosplayers!
Sapphire is an official Crystal Gem Member. Patient and more compassionate than her counterparts, Sapphire is fair-minded and cool-headed. Gifted with foresight, she is distant in her interactions with others despite her warm personality. Her foreknowledge keeps her ever mindful of her duty and desire to make the right choices that will reflect what she sees in her visions. This often results in her inability to feel things in the present.
Sapphires casual approach to the present makes her appear aggressive in unassertive ways. Most often fused with Ruby to create Garnet, she is the more social of the two. Her special abilities include a form of clairvoyance as well as the standard abilities awarded a Gem like shape-shifting, taking refuge in her gemstone to heal when wounded and fusion. She is also capable of Levitation, Cryokinesis and Enhanced Speed.
