Claws?

Does anyone know how to make claws for a cosplay? I'm trying to do a better job than my last attempt where I purchased Halloween ones and they were too long for me to pick up anything. I'm thinking about something maybe an inch long from base of the nail to tip. I was thinking about getting fake nails at any beauty store and filing them to a tip, but I'm not too sure if that'd work. Any ideas? Here's a picture of the cosplay and the nails :3

Ref not loading, so... Are you looking for *claws* or *claw-like Finger Nails*? The former has a ton of references if you look at fursuit tutorials (everything from cutting them from milkjugs and painting them to vacuforming), the latter... that's much more difficult and I'm afraid I cant offer any advice

The guy with the black hair..?
Those just look like really long fingernails. Get long acrylic nails and sharpen the edges (not too sharp) with tools.

agreed, buy the beauty supply store acrylic nails. make sure you have a mask on when you file them down or you can cut them. you may want to toughen them up tho with a couple layers of clear nail polish (esp on the bottom!)so they dont break
