Gurren Lagann: Viral

Okay, so I'm thinking about making a costume of Viral after the seven-year-gap in Gurren Lagann. The clothes don't look like they'll be too difficult, and my hair is long enough that I don't need a wig. Contact lenses shouldn't be that much of an issue either. But I can't seem to find a good set of fake claws or fangs anywhere, and have no idea how to go about making my own. Can someone give me some help here?

scarecrow fangs are really good, and if you set them right, they stay in for ever. comfy to boot. i'm not sure where you can find them, but hottopic or spencer's has them around halloween, they're around $20 each set.

You are a neglected Cosplayer when you look for photos of yourself forever after a con and you cannot find more than three. If you are, join the club, and begin your post with something related to neglected cosplayers!

I had thought about that, since I've used fangs like that for costumes before. Unfortunately, all of Viral's teeth are sharp, and I'm afraid I'm going to need a set that covers all of my teeth

For teeth, try here: http://www.vampfangs.com/Dental-Distortions-s/33.htm

The Ripper ones would probably work for what you want.
They also sell the Scarecrow Dental Fit fangs for people who are looking for just fangs.

I casted my own hands, as I didn't like the look of most of the pre-made monster hands availible.

But as for teeth, I have these:

They're not perfectly accurate, but the teeth that are closer to his are very dirty looking, where as Viral's are not, btu the thing is you can't really tell in pictures. Because it's really hard to show off the teeth. Check my gallery for pictures, if you wanted to see how those look.
