|THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES|
This is the video I posted for the method I used, though there are plenty of other tutorials available on the web:
Basically, you're just cutting out the teeth with an exacto blade, evening out the opening, adding a few drops of super glue, and then pinching it shut until the glue cures. Then, you'll end up with how she looks in the first photo above. One thing I need to recommend is that you use a craft blade instead of the straight blade I had to make do with. I've lost my darned Xacto and have NO idea where it disappeared to. It was too late to go out and find a new one, so I grabbed the blade from my scraper. Kids, please don't ever use sharp objects on your own, always get a parent to help you!
I'm very happy with the way she turned out and can't wait to finish her makeup. As I mentioned in the video, I ended up with a bit of discoloration from the glue (turning white as it cured) because of her dark skin. This didn't matter to me, as it was painted over, but if you're planning on keeping her lip color, you might want to think about touching it up afterward :). Thanks a bunch for reading! Clawdia and Elissabat's customs will be available in my Etsy shop a little later this afternoon!
