General
Cost : About £60
Time Taken : 2 weeks

Description
General Beatrix from Final Fantasy IX. An awesome character who needs to be cosplayed more.

I've now improved the cosplay. A new wig (may have just ruined a beautiful wig- damn I need my head back), the armor and the boots are done and the jacket straps adjusted so they fit better. All round improvement for the Sendai con this weekend...I hope it;s an improvement anyway

Considering this was pretty much my fist time making armor, I'm really proud with how all of this turned out. Especially the boots, which I actually managed to make so I could walk in them.

:D Thank you :D I love her as well, she's risen to be my favourite IX character. I want to wear this again, for a start I'd love to finish the armour and shoes probably, but I also love the costume. The problem is that I don't know when I'd wear it...

oooh, I would love that. I was so disappointed that I didn't see another IX cosplayer at expo :( (well, there was Zidane, but I always saw him at the wrong time). Just tell me when you have her finished.

She does, but is getting a lot more popular recently. I gues she's coming into fashon, so to speak :D Just like Raine and Julia from FFVIII.

Your welcom :D
Thanks a lot, I'm really proud of this one. It's not the most complicated I've done, but it looks like one of the most accurate :D Though I do hope to complete to properly, actually do the armour and stuff, rather than just cardboard.

:D, I tried to get all the details right (the lack of proper armour is still bugging me though)

SlimDefinition: Thanks, that's a big compliment from a great cosplayer like yourself.

Thank and you're welcome. Blah, I know what you mean, by the second day my wig was a complete and utter mess. I need to rework it if I wear it again, but next time I'll hopefully have a poly. head to attach it to so I can work on it properly.

Thank you, that means a lot :D I really wanted to nail the jacket, get everything right from the silhouette to the neck line. I'm very proud of how it came out and that it fits so well :D
