Ireland

Ireland Reid was born into what people would call in present time, a big family. Being raised in the heart of the Midwest and on a farm, she was no glamour princess. She spent many days working on the farm and shadowing her uncles on everything from feeding livestock to MIG welding small projects as she got older. When she wasn’t working, she was spending time watching her father master The Legend of Zelda on the NES (teaching Ireland the tricks along the way), swapping out components on the family’s Packard Bell desktop and watching Star Wars and Top Gun over and over again. She knew then that a geek was born as she loved every bit of it.

Since she was a young girl, Ireland had this crazy idea after high school, that she would pursue high education as she loved school, and that she wanted to get out of the area she grew up in and go see the world. She never fit in at school with anyone, and always felt different than anyone in her hometown. Ireland was basically a loner. If you know her personal background, the desire to leave the area was an abnormality, that some would even say screamed insanity. However she was determined to get out, see the world, learn everything she could about life and just live. She knew since she was little, that her wings were too large & dreams too big for my hometown.

Ireland landed in the sunny state of California in the late summer of 2008. She never thought she would actually be able to move from her hometown, but it happened. It was not the easiest journey by far as it really forced her to grow up, work on herself as a person, and it was then that she finally came back to the roots of geekdom.  She just so happened to in the meantime take photos here and there along the way for fun for friends to help build their portfolios. When she is not slaving away with her designs/her company/online content or school homework (as she is forever a student it seems having recently completed a Masters program), she can be found checking out the latest game, learning about the latest technology, slaying some weights at the gym or best case, rolling around in glitter and sequins. Ireland is obsessed with plushies, Pokemon, Zelda, Disney, and mystery boxes and mystery bags. She has to know what is in them and collect them all! She is also a proud mamma to 3 fur babies! Ireland loves her puppies! <3

Ireland decided to take her love for dressing up to a whole new level and by dumb luck, got into the cosplay world. Ireland makes her costumes and accessories by hand and dresses up as her favorite characters (that she has designed & made) as well as other worldly known characters. You can find Ireland at a majority of the Comic Cons across the World as well as all her online content via YouTube & Patreon! Stay tuned for tour dates and come by and say hi! <3
