Because really, is your life complete without one?
Seriously though, it will be part of an upcoming LARP, as an accessory to one of the costume. I'm anxious to see if players will dare to put it on. It is made entirely of hot glue (the fabric kind) and coloured with wood stain. The stain gives great uneven and nasty shades but it takes a couple of days to dry completely.



The basic idea behind the techniques can be found here:

But once yous start, why limit yourself to human sized teeth or just a small plate? It leads to a very flexible and solid product and frankly, I'd recommend fabric glue all around. It stays more flexible and isn't that hard to colour.

This is the exact right kind of horrifying!  I love it!  Even the teeth are hot glue? Amazing.

Yes I do the "gums" by spreading a bunch of layers and then I do the teeth separately, go for a drop shaped and then snip off the ends and then glue them onto the gums and go over once more near the bottom of the teeth give the impression that they are inside the gum, then paint. You can also paint the gums beforehand. Also, if you make nicks and scratches in the teeth, then when you put the stain on, it will go inside the cracks and give you a nice nasty teeth look.

As someone who just had a tooth extracted, this is just perfectly gruesome, in a good way.

Brilliant technique. Thanks for sharing how you did this!
