DIY Grillz & Fangz

dopey-eyed wanna be legit
This is my version of DIY grillz and fangs for Halloween. I've always wanted a grill, just a cool subtle one, or even a gold tooth. It's the inner thug in me. The thug that doesn't exist at all but I secretly wish I was. I used Ellie Macs SFX tutorial on YouTube. I pretty much followed it exactly, especially when it came to the DIY fangs. The best thing to make note is that continuing to dip the polymorph plastic into the hot water is the key to keeping the smooth. The great thing about the plastic is that it re-melts when it gets soft again. For the gold grillz, I used the Splendid Gold Decor Art dazzling metallics paint. It was the best gold that I could find without paying too much. There are a few things I would change if I did it again, but overall I love them! If you haven't seen Ellie Mac's videos you gotta check them out. She is the queen.
these ones are my favorite
My OG plan was to use these cartoony fangs for my halloween costume, but since, confession, I didn't end up dressing up this year, they sat on my counter. I was going to be a dragon, well, a girl/dragon. A girl turning into a dragon? I didn't have a name for it but I had it all planned out. I have just felt like ass for the last 3 weeks so I didn't end up doing shit. It's heartbreaking.

the best thing about these is that they are custom fit to your own mouth
because I love these new matte lip stains from Sephora and they are JEM!!

Seriously, these are a really good formula and last a long time.

Halloween Bloody Mani

I used OPI Samoan Sand as a base and then blotted the edges with the darkest of the colors firs,t which was OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, with a cotton swab. Then I blotted the next darkest red over that, which was OPI In a Holidaze. Then repeated that with the brightest red I have which is Super Black Cannibal. Finally I put a top coat on that bitch and called it good.

DIY Halloween Necklaces

OK. These Halloween necklaces did not turn out as planned. Apparently, shrinky dink film hates me. It hates my touch, my presence and most of all my face. It took me a few tries to get to this stage. When that bullshit curls up it doesn't always lay flat back down while it's in the oven. I won't lie, this was not easy. We did not get along and I won't be inviting it over for a sleepover ever again. With all said said, here are some photos to make them appear as cute as possible. 
This is supposed to be those plastic vampire teeth. This is the one I tried 3 times. I forgot to make small cutouts for the other teeth. 
The bat is my favorite of the bunch. 

These guys wanted to say hi.

Halloween DIY Painted Sculpture

Adding the before pic so you can have a better idea of what I actually did since I've had a few questions. All I did was paint over an already cool statue. 

After :)
