Quick PSA: pointy things!

So, lately a few of you might have been pinged as to the idea that I'm exploring the more feral side of myself, and to this end, I dropped by (in person, as being over in CA right now, I actually could) a place I've hovered around online for several years making wishful sort of eyes at but have never actually bought anything from, Psykic Fangs. The store's owner and designer can create custom fangs and full-mouth sets to pretty much any specification, from a variety of vampire and werewolf-style sets to cat, shark, rodent and other animals, as well as imitating the trademark look of a particular character or working from your completely custom design. This guy's even got fangs in there styled after unicorn horns-- it's crazy.

Well, I went down, and he was such a friendly and reassuring individual (even when I gagged on the dental mould something awful) and got everything together so swiftly, and as we were chatting he told me that a friend of his has been suffering some pretty severe financial problems and he's trying to help her out, and business has been really slack because of the economy and he's been having a sale to try and increase it, so he was glad I came by. And so I thought, you know, I like doing people a good turn and he seems the kind to do others a good turn and I really sympathise with that, so least I can do is give him a bit of a plug on my journal. I don't have the fangs yet (they'll be ready on Friday), but the work on his site is all seriously fantastic, so... if you have fantasies of being any sort of bitey, pointy creature, whether of your own invention or something existing, check out the site, especially since it's now a lot cheaper ($55 per set, by default) to get hold of a pair of custom fangs.

I'd make this entry seem less like adspam, or at least say a little more about the work I got done, but... I'm tired and goopy-headed. Goooop. But I do hope this helps the guy and his friend out, at least.

Oh, awesome! I'm not sure I'm into fangs for myself, but, well, as an observer, I think little details like that are aesthetically very cool...

Have you tried wearing any before? Are they difficult to speak around?

It would be the first time for me, but I hear even the excessive, full-mouth sets can be spoken with just fine. (The guy who makes them was wearing them when I met him, and he spoke perfectly well.)

pointies like kitty
I didn't even have any idea that the guy was wearing fangs when I met him, although he's probably had tons of practice with them.

Randomly
I am horribly amused that he has a Bordello of Blood set. That was one of those movies that Comedy Central ran over and over (maybe it still does), and my first roommate in college loved said movies. Which was actually kind of annoying at the time, but at this point enough time has passed that it's funny.

Also, I am oddly nitpicky and wish people would refer to that styling as being along the lines of narwhal tusks, not unicorn horns. The poor creatures need acknowledgment for their losses during the middle ages! And it's not like unicorns necessarily have the spiral horn.

Re: Randomly
You know... you're right, calling them narwhal tusks would make more sense. They're teeth, after all. Maybe they decided to call those artificial teeth "unicorn horns" because they suspected a lot of people wouldn't know what "narwhal tusks" meant.

Hmm... *Tilts head to one side curiously* If I had the money, I would really like to commission a set of fox canines from them. Perhaps some day!

Having tremendous fun with your blacklight, btw XD

You have the perfect icon for everything. It impresses.

CA, eh? Well, if you have the desire and the opportunity to head a little bit north, you know my door's open. x^^

Likewise, if there's anything in particular you'd want to discuss regarding one's personal "feral-ness", I'd be happy to lend an ear and what feedback I can. I think even way back when you knew that I've at least some perspective and insight regarding my own personal "feral and instinctive" facets, and even now it's still something I periodically touch upon and explore.
