For the costume I made the skirt and the bodice as well as my fangs.  The Skirt is just alot of fabrics layered together for the nice vampy gothy look.  The bodice is quilted and I used stiff interfacing to make it stand up.  For the fangs I used fingernail acrylic, It tastes gross while it's drying but it works.

The costume looks great, I love the detailing.  But really, the world needs to know how to do those fangs.  You did an amazing job.  They look creepy real.

My toes are cold.

Ok, I will attempt to explain how I made my teeth.

Step 1:  Purchase an acrylic nail kit or get a bottle of acrylic liquid white and peach colored acrylic powder (you can purchase these at Wal-mark or at a beauty supply store.  The proper way to do this step is to purchase dental acrylic and liquid but it's easier to get nail stuff.  Either way this stuff is stinky so make the area is well ventilated.

Step 2:  WARNING: It's probably not a good idea to do it this way... but I did it and as long as you don't swallow the acrylic or the acetate you should be fine.   Make sure your teeth are clean,  mix enough powder and liquid to make a tooth sized ball.  Let it sit until it's not sticky but still squishy.  Mold it into a cone shape or kinda a fang shape and press it to your chosen tooth.  Keep your mouth open and your lip up for around a minute.  When it has sat against your tooth it will have begun the harden and should be carefully removed. It should have to be popped off, that means a good fill. BE SURE NOT TO LET IT HARDEN ON YOUR TOOTH!! BAD NEWS!! no I've never done it but it's bad.  This isn't pleasant but it works.  If you want more than singles just repeat on the corresponding teeth separately. Let them set to dry and harden.  Once you have removed them you might want to mouth wash to get the taste out.

Step 3:  This is the most important part I think.  Once hard you can sand them and shape them with you favorite tools.  I used a dremel which definately cuts down the time.  Basically you want to sand and smooth them until they look the way you want.  They are kinda hard to hold on to while sanding but a good pair of tweezers help. Make sure to keep fitting them on your teeth to see if they stay and fit as well as look good.  They can be as dull or as sharp as you like but be carefull you could draw blood.  The good thing is that you can speak clearly and they stay in without goo or glue.

Hopefully this helps If you have any more questions feel free to ask!!

Here are a couple of references if you don't want to put acrylic directly in your mouth.

Let me know how it goes!!
