I should preface this by saying I haven’t actually made our costumes yet. But the kids at least have a plan and thankfully the costumes they’re wanting are blessedly easy compared to many they’ve wanted in the past!
This year the kids are all doing Steven Universe costumes! Yes, they’re pretty easy for the most part!
Kat will be going as Pearl, the character you see to the left here. Thankfully the clothing is relatively simple for pearl, and I’ve found a suitable wig I can easily manipulate to make the costume work. I worry Kat’ll be freezing, but she just says she’ll wear white leggings and a white long sleeved shirt to keep her warm. That works for me!
Pearl is tall, thin, and graceful. Kat has the first two *grin* but isn’t the most graceful. Maybe it’s just a teenage thing? I don’t know, but she can trip over air. Then again, I’m not much better sometimes!
Sis is going as Amethyst, but wearing a long sleeved shirt like the character wore in the pilot episode. Only because it’s cold up here already at night and we’re not even close to Halloween. So I just imagine it’ll be FAR FAR colder than this come that night!
Amethyst is short, chubby and goofy. Everything that Bear is. Oh, she’s also kind of messy too… also describes Bear! hahaha yes. Amethyst will be the perfect character for Sisi. 🙂
In a surprising personality twist, Lis and Var are going as Sapphire (blue) and Ruby (red)! Var is going as Sapphire, who is much more like Lisi personality wise. While Risi is going to be Ruby, who is much more loud and outgoing like Var. >.>
Thankfully these seem like really easy costumes too. More so Ruby, but it’ll require Lisi wearing leggings and a shirt similar to Ruby’s skin color so she doesn’t freeze. Yes, Var will be wearing a dress. It’s Halloween, so why not have fun? 😉
Risiel will be going as Lion. Why? Because it’s easy! I can just dye a pair of white pants and a white hoodie and make them pink, or buy a light pink version of each. From there, I can easily make the mane out of a toooon of pale pink yarn! The tail wont be hard either, thank goodness! If I even bother with the tail.
I’m not sure if I am going to end up dressing up this year. It’s more important I try and focus on the kids costumes.
Here is the wig I plan on using for the Pearl costume:

Overall, I think I can do this without too many issues. Or at least I really… REALLY… really hope I can get this done for them without too many issues. @_@;; Wish me luck!
