I have been asked quite a few times in the past which fighting game I got into first, or which fighting game it was that turned me into a fan of the fighting genre. Well, truth be told. Even though I (Robin Ek, TGG) was born in the mid 80s, it wasn’t until I played “Street fighter 2” on the SNES console that I started to get really interested in fighting games (this was around mid-late 1991 ). However, there was one particular fighting title that truly consumed my Gaming soul completely, and that was Midway’s ultra brutal fighting game “Mortal Kombat”.
You see, in the summer of 1992, I found my way to the arcades in my local home town, and on that very day I discovered the “Mortal Kombat” arcade game. Well, the rest is as they say “history”, because I’ve been a fan of the “Mortal Kombat” series since that day =) (throughout the early and mid 90s, I jumped back and forth between MK 1-3 on console and PC depending on if I was at home or at my friend’s place).
I’m of course aware that the MK series has had its ups and downs over the years (that same could also be said about the various movie attempts of MK…). Nevertheless, I’ve been a loyal MK fan throughout the years. Even so, it wasn’t until NetherRealm Studios released “Mortal Kombat X” (the game got released to PS4, Xbox One and PC in April of 2015) that I got back into the world of MK, and funny enough. When I was going through some news for SDCC 2017 (San Diego Comic Con 2017) I spotted a really awesome and sexy Mileena cosplay by Ireland Reid :3 (she paid SDCC 2017 a little visit just recently) And for those who have no idea who Ireland is, here’s a short introduction of her:
“Ireland Reid is a San Diego, California, based International Costume Designer/Cosplayer & Published Model, a background in Mechanical Engineering, and holds an MBA with Honors. Ireland’s self taught, elaborate & extreme attention to costume detail, originally first caught world attention when she designed & made Fitness Theme Wear for competitors for some of the world’s champion title holders. When Ireland isn’t working, you can find her in the gym, gaming, making videos & tutorial content for her YouTube channel, or curled up with a sci-fi book.” – The official Site of Ireland Reid
Well, that’s some pretty darn impressive for sure. So, as for those sexy pictures of Ireland as Mileena, here you go 😉 (I’ve put the latest pictures first, so you will find Ireland ‘s older pictures of Mileena further down the page).
Other than that, It’s also worth pointing out that Ireland has done plenty of other cosplays besides her Mileena cosplay. I’m not even exaggerating either, because she has done tons of different cosplays in the past, and that includes everything from Pichu (“Pokémon“), Mary Jane Watson (“Spider-Man“), Poison (“Final Fight”) to a female version of Link (“Zelda“). So, yeah, I think it’s safe to say that Ireland has a very wide range when it comes to her cosplays. As it seems like she’s not afraid to try different sorts of cosplays, and on a personal level. I find Ireland to be one of the very best cosplayers in the world. I also have to admit that I like the fact that she’s a PhD Student/Designer/Gamer and fitness Entertainer. Anyways, as for those older Mileena pictures that I mentioned earlier, you will find what you’re looking for down below 😉
And with that said, what’s your take on Ireland ‘s cosplay of Mileena? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
