I made these for my Jake English (Homestuck) cosplay and made my friend, [link]
, some troll teeth.
You will need:
· Acrylic nails
A nail file
· Hot glue gun
· A bobby pin
· Wirey bendy thing (something that will bend the bobby pin)
· Possibly some sweet jams
Step 1: Pick 2 nails closest to the size of your two front teeth. Choosing a size just a bit larger is recommended so that you can adjust as needed.
Step 2: Cut the nails to your desired length and shape them to fit over your own teeth using scissors and the nail file.
Step 3: Take the bobby pin and bend it into a shape that will fit into your mouth and around your teeth. You can bend the ends of it so they clip around the back of your last few teeth and maybe stay in place. If this is uncomfortable for you, don’t do it. (If you have to cut the wire, try putting brace wax on the area you cut to avoid cutting your gums or the inside of your mouth.)
Step 4: Using a thin line of glue on the edge of one tooth, press the edge of the other to it and glue them together. Let it dry…
Step 5: Now put the shaped bobby pin in your mouth. Take the two front teeth and note where you should glue them onto the bobby pin. Take it out and apply glue to that area. Gently press the teeth into the glue. The first layer on the bobby pin doesn’t have to be thick, in fact it’s better if it isn’t, so it’s easy to peel off and reposition.
Step 6: Once the teeth are in place, flip the piece over and apply glue in the space at the top of the teeth, between the wire and the nails. This helps them stay in place and feel less awkward and more secure.
If you need more teeth, if say, you’re Cosplay a troll from Homestuck, or Grell from Kuroshitsuji! (Black Butler) follow these same steps, but sharped the nails to look like shark teeth. Just cover the teeth that are exposed when you smile.
If your teeth are mildly crooked, this should still work. I know because I have mildly crooked teeth and a gap.
Tips: Do not eat with the teeth (I mean come on, man)
For Troll teeth, or sharp teeth in general, just sharpen the nails by filing them to a point and continue as you would for any other set of teeth.
