Hey there. My mobile device is REALLY horrible, so I'm not sure anything will hyperlink (it only properly did it the first week of owning it) so I'm going to play the copy/paste game.
Prior to my new attempts in cosplay I was a paid makeup artist for several drag queens. I am also a working artist. I am new to the culture, but I am a vet when it comes to costuming and makeup.
I've used scarecrow teeth and I generally do not recommend them. The fit is very bulky cost WAY too much per tooth, and I'm not fond of the shape. They're also awful if they're placed wrong in the slightest.
I've recently bought teeth from dental distortions, but man are they expensive! They just came out with a new line and discounted the initial price, so if you have the money you're gonna want the "Grell" [http://www.dentaldistortions.com/col.../fx-fangs-2-0]
. I only wear the top Half of mine, and they look real in pictures. They really are the best option you can get. They just don't have my chopper needs in the new material yet
This is basically top notch, and you can't order any better when it comes to looks. ONLY BUY THE 2.0 VERSIONS! I bought "Lucius" in the old material for Gamzee teeth (soo great for him) and they snapped in half! I just got off the phone with the owner (really nice guy). Super glue fixed them in seconds (I already had the proper type for it lying around) and you can't see where it broke at all, even though it was literally in the center. They changed the material because this was a common problem.
I've tried the acrylic nail tutorial, and it doesn't look or feel great in person, but I DID find an amazing DIY for thems choppers that I'm trying for my wife this weekend (she's gender bending KK). Let me know if it takes you to some random page, because this was a tumblr post... My phone hates them. [http://sweetartsandhellacrafts.tumbl...0/troll-teeth]
. The tutorial doesn't mention how important it is not to bend the hollow mold, but it's important that you make them so they sit flat on a plate when cooling them without moving around so that the end result isn't a twisted version of your teeth rows. I'm actually going to bake the mold, then use more sculpy to make a permanent set of her teeth so that we can whip up other teeth that fit her mouth specifically in a jiffy whenever we need to. My only strong recommendation is that you find a relatively safe high gloss acrylic to seal them after all is baked, as sculpy is notoriously porus, and this can assist a little in preventing staining from cosmetic sontact, and some germ problems.
Actually, I also recommend that you use glow in the dark sculpy rather than white; it color is a lot more like real teeth, but if you can't live with the spooky green glow when you're in a dark room then I guess go with white.
I'm a working artist, I've been working in sculpy all week on a requested kid's project for unrelated reasons, and I'm pretty sufficient with 3D design, so actually making ones that look nice are going to be easier for someone with that kind of experience, but with any project I recommend getting enough material to try a practice run at least three times before baking, and even THEN I always make a new project three times in a row. Even if I think my first try is perfect the third time around shows a 100% improvement.
I'm totally new to this site/culture (this is literally the first post I saw on google) so if I made any blatant errors in etiquette or rules let me know.
