Steven Universe SWIM Workout Cosplay

Today's Workout Cosplay is based on one of the most happy, and determined characters I've ever seen: Steven Universe!

This last week I've been swimming a lot, AND I'm trying to get a water polo team going!!! I'm so excited to play in the water. It's my favorite exercise and cardio. Also, it's  funny how much my mood changes after being in the water. I'm a new person!!! I'm sometimes afraid I was a mermaid as a kid, and brought on land because the mer-mob was after me...or something.

Anyway, I want to point out four things in this outfit! First, the swim cap! I STILL wear one whenever I'm in the pool. In addition to protecting my side-shaves, it protects my platinum from turning pool green, and, (MOST importantly) keeps my hair off my face.

Next, the board shorts, which I only ever wear while surfing, or, to create drag (slows you down) in the water.

Then, is the very important Hamburger backpack to carry your swim goodies in! If you watch Steven Universe, you know why this bag is a must!

Last, are the things I want a LOT right now: those Sony Walkman headphones/MP3 Players. They are WATER PROOF!!! You could even use them to listen to this while you swim:


I was planning this post a while back (when I posted the other Crystal Gems). Unfortunately, the folks I was using to share playlists were very naughty, and so I had to start his music from scratch.

But, I am glad this happened as I had help from my friends Gladys and Gwen in coming up with this playlist I though Steven would have grown up with thanks to his dad, and, their mutual love of singing! So there's a 70's-90's pop & rock influence!

Check out Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet as well!
