Best Otis Milburn Costume Guide
Otis Milburn is an awkward teenager in the show Sex Education. He’s sixteen years old and is pretty shy around most people. Being the child of sex and relationship therapists has rubbed off on him and he’s able to give his classmates advice. Though he doesn’t really have any experience himself, he somehow manages to be great at helping others. So he decides to open a sex clinic with his friend Maeve for students at Moordale Secondary.
Otis is played by Asa Butterfield and is known for being socially awkward. However, he’s pretty good at hiding his awkwardness when he’s giving advice to others. Having originally helped the high school bully, people are eager to turn to him for help. He’s easy to talk to and can be trusted with almost all secrets. For the awkward teen look that Otis Milburn has, you’ll need to get an Otis Milburn Jacket, Striped T-Shirt, Men’s Jeans, Hiking Boot and Sport Helmet.
Otis Milburn Cosplay Costumes
Sex Education became popular on Netflix and was applauded for its realistic and wise stance on the topic. The show could have easily used the usual teen tropes and followed the same pattern as some others, but instead it is seen as a refreshing take on the teenager world.
Otis’ outfits are memorable throughout the show for their stripes and fun colours. It’s one of those sneaky cosplays where you can look like you’re wearing everyday clothes, but you’ll actually be in costume! People who get the reference will give you a nod or a wave while everyone else will be none the wiser. See how many people start coming up to you for advice!
We would love to see how this costume works out, so send in some photos to our Halloween Costume Contest! Who knows, maybe you are a great therapist, just like Otis.
About Otis Milburn
Sex Education is a show starring Asa Butterfield as the quirky and awkward 16 year old Otis Milburn. The show follows Otis, a son of two sex and relationship therapists. When he was younger, he accidentally saw his father cheating with one of his clients. Otis didn’t really understand what was going on and so he told his mum. His mum separated from her husband, but made sure to explain to her son the good and bad about sex. This dump of information gave him un-diagnosed symptoms of PTSD as a teenager.
Otis didn’t think he’d really been listening to his mum when she gave people advice, but it turns out he had. He helped out Adam Groff, the school bully, with relationship problems which gave Maeve the idea of having Otis open his own clinic. He may not have any experience himself, but his advice is so good that his classmates keep coming to him for help.
