Member of the Crystal Gems and one of the last surviving gems in the rebellion, young Pearl from Steven Universe is the future teacher of Rose’s son Steven. Her look is fun and not too complicated. If you follow this guide, you’ll be a rousing success at your next convention. Begin with a Lavender Purple Wig and included a Matte Opal Rainbow Cabochon and Snazaroo Sparkle Face Paint to put together her unique look.
For Pearl’s clothing, dress up in a Women’s Sheer Poncho Shrug over a Ladies Mint Ribbed Tube Top. Beneath we went with a pair of Women’s Combed Cotton Bike Shorts. We capped off her look with Bright Stretch Fit Leg Warmers and some Ballet Flat Shoes.
Calling all little gems! Though she grows into her powers fairly quickly, young Pearl has a unique sense of style that anyone would enjoy cosplaying. If you have light colored hair, spray on hair color is an affordable and temporary option. If not, a wig can be purchased online or at a costume shop. White face paint can be used to draw the oval on her forehead. You can also pick up a stick on gem in the craft department for a quick fix.
A mint colored tank and fitted yellow shorts will nearly complete her look. You can choose to draw or sew on a yellow star to her shirt and cap off your costume with pink ankle socks and mint ballet flats. Group cosplay options are endless beginning with her fellow Crystal Gems and ending with lesser known characters like Onion or Peedee. Be sure to check out the featured pics for even more cosplay ideas. We welcome your pics as well, show us what you come up with!
Though entrusted with colossal powers Pearl has some very human shortcomings. Suffering from low self-esteem, she is reliant on others to validate her. Without purpose or anyone to look after, Pearl becomes lost and questions her value. A natural born follower, she performs better with a leader to direct her way. Despite these weaknesses, Pearl is a perfectionist and is prone to bragging. Easily thrown off balance, Pearl is the least adjusted to life on Earth.
As if to prove her worth, she works to become a formidable swordswoman and fighter. She is deeply devoted to Steven’s mother, Rose Quartz, almost obsessively and develops a motherly love for him. She is mistrustful of humans but remains diligent in her duty to protect humanity but it is assumed that it is more out of dedication to Rose Quartz than love for the human race. Her obsessive tidiness stems from being taught that Pearls were servants and created to be attractive for their masters.
