The Rose of Alexandria by Rose0fMay The Rose of Alexandria by Rose0fMay
General Beatrix ~ Final Fantasy IX

It's been a while, and I've been itching to get back into this costume. New photoshoot for 2013, more to come soon :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, completed in 2011, 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: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNHtbw…

This costume has also been featured on various blogs and pages, forwarded to me by friends and random internet chaps :) I'm honored for the acknowledgement, thank you <3

I absolutely love your costume! >w<
I first stumbled across it about two years when I decided I wanted to cosplay Beatrix and was looking for some reference screen shots on Google.
You look flawless! 
I'm so excited to see the new photos!! :D

Ooh! Did you ever finish? Reference photos of her are tough. Even on the official artwork and screen caps of the video clips, it was difficult to make out some things. I could see the general shape of things, like the gold detail on the belt, but not in great detail. I ended up having to take a lot of artistic license with it.

Not yet! It had to get temporarily put on hold due to lack of available funds and time. 
I am however working on it in little bits at a time and hoping to have it done for 2015! (I'm crossing my fingers for sooner though!)
Yes, reference photo's of her a really tough. :( Screen caps are blurry and the artwork still doesn't have a lot of detail. I'm taking quite a bit of artistic license with mine as well. Hopefully it'll still look all right! :D
