How to Dress Like Pearl
Pearl Costume Breakdown
Pearl has a very unique hairstyle – a short, angular haircut that is bubblegum pink. Her hair is pointed upward and appears frozen, as if held in place with a very strong gel. To replicate Pearl’s hairstyle you can either use temporary pink hair dye or wear a pink wig. Use hairspray to get the pointed look, or use hair gel depending on your preferences. For an extra touch, see if you can find the hairspray that has glitter in it to give your style the same sparkling gemstone look that Pearl is known for!

Pearl has an enormous pink gemstone in the center of her forehead – a pearl just like her name implies. There are many different ways you can do this. For instance, you can draw a pearl on your head with metallic Halloween face paint, or you can use flat plastic gem made for arts and crafts.
Pearl’s complexion is very pale. You can use makeup foundation to get the right complexion or skip this detail if you’re in a hurry.
Pearl wears a pastel turquoise sleeveless shirt with a yellow star on the front, and pink leggings with a see-through pink skirt overtop. You can either buy similar clothes or design your very own! You can use fabric paint to put a gold star on your shirt if you can’t find the item you’re looking for.
Pearl wears pink knee-high shoes, and she also carries a large scythe made of jagged crystal. You can make your own scythe out of stiff clear plastic or any other clear household material. Get your friends to dress up as the rest of the Steven Universe gang, too! You’ll be out of this world at any costume party or convention.
Humans find such fascinating ways to waste their time.
