    Default Any ideas on how to secure vampire fangs in your mouth?

    Hi there! >w<
    I will be cosplaying as Okumura Rin from Ao No Exorcist,and i have already bought 2 plastic fangs (1 fang per tooth).Something like the ones shown in here : How to apply scarecrow vampire fangs - YouTube

    I knew that the fangs will be loose fitting and was already intending to buy a tube of dental ahesive to apply into the fang before sticking it to my own tooth as suggested in some of the DIY vampire teeth videos on youtube.
    However,it's $10 for a big tube of Poligrip/Polident dentures ahesive (should be less then a pea size amount per fang) and after asking several pharmists @ guardian & watsons,they all said that the fangs will not stick to my teeth. (and when i searched ''Poligrip'' on youtube,quite a number of videos on it was about the health problems it gave so kinda scared also.> < )

    The seller of the fangs told me to chew a mentos,take it out and stick some of the now mooshy bits into the fang,and then place it in my teeth. (Yes i know it is very very gross > < ) I have tried it,but it is still really gross but it does hold the fang securely in place,though sadly the mentos will melt after some time so the grip will eventually be lost and all that suger hugging my tooth 360degrees aint good for my tooth.

    I have already :
    -Visited the scarecrow fangs website,sadly they do not ship to singapore.
    -Researched on how to DIY fangs,didnt dare to make as it required using poisonous nail acrylic (went to several nail shops but none of them had a proper ''what this item is made out of'' lable) and i do not have a dremmel thingy.
    -bought this glow in the dark fake teeth with fangs (it contains all of the top and bottom front tooths as well as the pointy vampire fangs) and it dosnt even fit into my teeth. (it's like wearing a glove on your hand,only that the glove is too small so your fingers cant even go through.)

    Also kinda have a budget,and am hopeing to use the fangs for STGCC!

    -If you have used vampire fangs before (something like what i have),what do you use to keep it nice and snug in your tooth?
    -If you know someone who uses dental ahesive such as Poligrip or Polident,is it sticky and safe to use and do you think they will help to hold the fangs securely?

    Chewing gum/bubble gum would probably work, especially the very soft kind, but you'd have to dry your teeth and gums first since it doesn't stick to wet surfaces (or we wouldn't be able to open our mouth again when chewing XDDDD ) Then you'd have to let it harden a bit so it doesn't fall right out when your saliva moistens it again....and getting it off after that...well....ew is all I can think...

    Hmmm! +w+
    I dont have any gum though,must wait for friends go holiday ask them smug!
    And the only gum available in sg that i can think of is the quit-smoking gum,duno if can get it off the shelves or must see doctor/pharmis to get?

    To get the crap out of the fang i use toothpicks to extract any stubbon lumps inside.

    Actually you can get dental gum in Singapore.

    There's 2 types of gum for legal sale in Singapore.
    Nicotine gum and dental gum.

    Just ask any pharmacist in guardian. they'll have it, my friend bought from the store she was working at before.
