We're so happy you've booked a Vampire session with Lucy La Riot!
Here is all the info to know for your upcoming session:
VAMPIRE SESSIONS ARE B.Y.O.F
(Bring Your Own Fangs)
Since everyone lives in various areas and can't necessarily get to the studio for a fang fitting prior to their sessions, we're encouraging everyone to purchase your fangs in advance and set them prior to your session.
The fangs are easy to purchase and set, and then they're yours to keep! There are two different types of fangs, both available on Amazon...
The fangs are easy to set and you will custom mold them to your teeth, so after the initial molding they will have a custom fit and will simply click on to your teeth after they have set and dried. The setting process only takes a few minutes, and they will need to dry for 24 hours.
We recommend to place your fangs on the teeth next to your middle teeth (incisors), versus your canines, as it will be easier to model with them in and you can hold your mouth more naturally and allow the fangs to show (pictured above).
The fangs we have linked to above come with everything you will need to custom fit your fangs.
CAREFULLY READ THE INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH THE FANGS AND FOLLOW THEM TO THE T! (Trust me ladies!)
Do not wiggle the fangs or adjust them once you have placed them on your teeth with the setting agent, and there are instructions with the fangs that cover how to re-fit your fangs if they are loose after the first attempt.
If a little molding material shows once they have dried (on the sides or front/back of fangs) don't worry or try to clip it off as they suggest in the instructions. Since these are for a photo shoot we can touch up anything necessary, no need to risk clipping them :)
Once you have successfully set your fangs and tried them on, practice your faces in the mirror and get used to having them in for a little bit as they take a little getting used to since you have to hold your mouth slightly differently with them in.
It will be helpful for your shoot to already be used to having them in for a little bit.
If you have any questions about setting your fangs just let us know and we can answer any inquiries.
We can't wait to see all you badass vampires in the studio soon ;)
