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.

My favorite knight from the series, barring Cecil or Kain, Although her being a Paladin is a bonus. Anyway, I love her so much I use her in the game when I shouldn't. I would love to get my hands on that sword, though... I'm kinda like Gilgamesh in that respect...

Always loved you're Beatrix, you look stunning. The details on the straps are a nice touch and the details on the belt and armour look so impressive :D But I think one of my favourite parts is the wig, I guess I'm just impressed by amazing wig styling :D

I'm glad you enjoy <3 The wig is my favorite part too...it was the alpha and the omega of this costume. First thing started and last thing finished, and there were times when I wasn't sure I'd ever pull it off.

:lol: It does look amazing. How it you manage it? You must have added a lot of extensions to the curls? And how did they stay so beautifully in shape?

Wow. Hubba hubba. I find you an incredibly erotic & totally awesome dudess!

I hereby award you my very own, 'Hottest, most Erotic Cos-player wot gives Gentlemen Trouble in the Trouser Department this time I Checked Back' Award.

Bet you're thrilled. Definitely beats a Llama badge anyday of the week.

Mwah.

I'm not nearly scantily dressed enough to fall into the 'erotic' category, but I'll take the totally awesome dudess to the bank :)

Ha ha. I could kiss you. Good response - probably one of the best I have received so far!

Great to hear feedback from recipients of my 'fictional' award. But don't worry: it's sheer brilliance *ahem* is that it transcends the everyday notion of 'erotic'. You don't have to be dressed in next to nothing to be classed as an 'erotic' lady. You are 'erotic' to me, simply because you are who you are!!!

Mwah.

P.S. And I believe you owe me a new pair of trousers!
