Meet Allie ( Aka @donttouchmymilk)
Donttouchmymilk Cosplay, aka Allie
I’m from North Carolina in the US
What's Your Favorite Cosplay & Why?
Of mine? Hard to say. I think everyone else’s favorite of mine is probably my Sugarplum Fairy from Cabin in the Woods. I pretty much love all of the ones with lots of makeup and prosthetics.
How Long Have You Been Cosplaying?
Just over 10 years. It’s amazing how fast time passes.
Do you make your own, or commission?
For the most part I make my own, though I will occasionally buy clothing articles at thrift stores or online to help piece costumes together.
What's your favorite thing about cosplay?
The creativity! I love problem solving. My speciality is horror and sfx makeup, and I always find there’s a lot of creative thinking that goes into making something like a monster or pink-skinned alien look realistic.
NC Comicon and Jekyllcon, which I will be a guest at.
Advice for new Cosplayers:
Do what makes you happy. I used to cosplay characters I thought would make other people happy, even when it made me uncomfortable. But when I realized that making monsters and colorful creatures was what I loved to do, my love for cosplay grew exponentially.
