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.
