With Halloween around the corner, we dove into our closets to find quick and easy costumes to please all manner of costume and cosplay enthusiasts! Our focus today is on the determined Connie Maheswaran from Steven Universe!
The strawberry to Steven Universe’s biscuit, Connie Maheswaran’s upbringing leads her to don a more comfortable attire. To snag Connie’s style, there are a few options to be found for a mint a-line skirt, but we chose Zappos as the closest, as it seems like a place Mrs. Maheswaran would allow her daughter to shop. If a plain white tee is somehow missing from your closet, no worries, Forever 21 has them on the cheap along with all sorts of socks. Ever the practical gal, head to Target to snatch up galoshes to keep your feet dry no matter what Beach City throws your way. Have perfect vision and no use for prescriptions or readers? That’s okay, Connie does too. While you’re at Target, grab some sunglasses with round frames and pop the lenses out. Voila!
Want to take your Connie Maheswaran costume to the next level? Grab a toy violin, make Connie’s favorite book, The Unfamiliar Familiar, or have a friend go as Steven Universe, jam buds style!
