...to invent Ireland, since Hetalia has been a buttface and counts Ireland as a part of Britain?
Because I've been meaning to. I mean, nobody would really know who I was at cons, so maybe I'd have to carry around a sign that says "IRELAND" lmao but yeah.
So would anyone go into rage-mode if I were to do that, or would it just be frowned upon, or would it be alright?

People do that all the time. I know someone who goes to the cons I go to dressed as Mexico. I also have a good friend who cosplays Portugal.
Check online. There's a lot of designs out there already for Ireland.

My friend is doing Scotland. If you want to do Ireland then go for it!! If someone is mad at you saying that Ireland is not in Hetalia, just tell them that you love your Country!!
A girl did Ireland and its very cute.

Aww no, lots of people do original characters. I was hanging out with an Ireland cosplayer the other day actually! While I don't think there is a fanon Ireland like there is for Scotland and some Latin American countries, there are still plenty of people with designs for you to get inspiration from!
My advice would be, if you are doing it to a con, make sure to have some type of flag with you so people will know. I am not saying it has to be big and obnoxious, but maybe just the small hand held ones so everyone will have something as a hint?

This isn't really an uncommon thing, lol!
People make and cosplay Hetalia OC's all the time!!!
I was hanging out with a Scotland & an Ireland at my last con, and it was awesome!
So go for it!!!
And I agree with PK.love, some sort of flag would definitely help!!

I saw an Irleand at Bishie and Kawa Kon (it was the same one). Also I saw a guy do Scotland at Kawa, complete with paper airplanes. He made one off-screen appearance where he threw a paper airplane at England. I considered doing Northern Ireland but wasn't sure how to go about it.
