    I would say low budget some oven bake clay, superscult perhaps. Other wise if you want to cast them out dental plaster would give a good look or resin but you would have to paint the resin, where as the plaster you could weather then be sealed easier.

    Kind of depends on the lips, do they move? open or closed static mouth?

    The mouth doesn't move, it's just going to be sitting there. But the clay idea is a good idea I will use that. Thank you!

    i've used polymorph plastic, otherwise known as magic plastic, comes as small pellets which you heat in water and then shape by hand into teeth fangs whatever, once it cools its sets rock hard into a translucent white plastic which with a bit of shading looks like teeth
    heres a link to some on ebay, so you know what to look for

    Polymorph looks brilliant, a million uses around the home and in prop making with that stuff - definitely getting some to play with!

    Thanks, I'm going to be working on the body very soon. I'll be doing a PVC mannaquin I'm just trying to figure out what I want to stuff the body with. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate the help.

    Hey, Great Build!!!! Im at the same point in my build...I used scrap ABS for my teeth and oven bake clay for the mouth and nose.

    I saw a guy who, for the body, did the PVC mannequin, wrapped that in either foam or bubble wrap to get the body size, and then duct tape around that to make it more solid. I think they just attached the fur from there. Thats what i was thinking of doing for mine...
