Circus Monster Fangs/Teeth

http://xensilence.deviantart.com/art...aito-333685263 ref pic of them, I'm planning on cosplaying the Kaito version, and I've got everything down except the fangs/teeth. How would I get them to look realistically "grow" on the corners on the mouth or something, and safely.

Anyone know what would be safe?

You may be able to use a material such as model magic to make the fangs, then attach them to your skin with something like spirit gum. Unfortunately, I don't know if those two items can be combined or not. Otherwise, check out specialty makeup stores (like Silly Farm) for similar fangs.

For a more realistic look, adding a touch of liquid latex around the "holes" plus some different shades of makeup to look like broken or healed skin.

Sorry I can't offer more advice!

I think that'll be good. I was planning on using Model Magic, as I've used it for several projects It's just attaching that's hard. I love the idea of using liquid latex to make it look as if it's really growing out. Would using a piece of cardboard work with spirit gum?

It might absorb the spirit gum, but I honestly don't know.

Hm, I guess it'll be a trial & error then. I'll try it out, but I think plastic would work better. I plan using the horns more than once.

You could probably buy some costume horns that are designed to be attached to the forehead with spirit gum.

Attach them with Prosaide, which is used to attach latex prosthetics to skin.
