Queen Regent Aravah
Mary-Kate is the creator of The Fantasy Realm of Chicago, a blog, fantasy and cosplay realm. She is a Chicago actress with Otherworld Theatre Company and Trap Door Theatre and harbours a penchant for the enchanted. Her theatrical background is based in non-realism, European avant-garde, and Shakespeare. She is the one of the creators of Messina3004, a dystopian version of Much Ado About Nothing and the creator of Illyria, a fantastical version of Twelfth Night. She is also one of the hosts of Fairest in the Land, a Disney podcast. She draws her LARP inspirations from her favourite series: Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, Avatar the Last Airbender, The Princess Bride, and Disney films. She hopes that The Chronicles of the Realm bestows as much magic on you as it has on her.
