General Beatrix ~ Final Fantasy IX

I was recently notified that this costume was featured on
The Daily What, Geeks Are Sexy, and Space2Geek.

I'm honored for the acknowledgement, thank you <3

I first cosplayed Beatrix in 2003 I think. I just can't seem to retire her, I love this costume so much. I've worn her so many times, and she's been through many tweakings to get her just right.
This most recent facelift was inspired by Erutan's Rose of May cover. Not only is the song incredibly well done, but Kate featured my old costume in her video collage (seen around the 4:10 mark).

Link to Kate's amazing song: [link] I hope everyone enjoys the 2011 photos :)

This costume has also been featured on various blogs and pages, forwarded to me by friends and random internet chaps :)

Rose of May was the perfect song for General Beatrix.  I loved it but I will always love her without question.  Beatrix is one of those rare characters that while she tries to kill you at first, you can't help but feel strongly for her, especially when you get to see more of her as the game progressed.  Your picture in full costume brings out her strength as well as her hidden sorrow.  In short, you might as well be General Beatrix lol.

Baha, 'tis true. I've always loved Beatrix, even though she isn't a typical main character. I loved having her with me that short time with Steiner, hehe.
