16th November 2017: San Diego and Hollywood We took Tooth and Jack Frost to San Diego Comic Con. We had an amazing time and Tooth drew a huge crowd. We got an invitation to DreamWorks Animation where 'Rise of the Guardians' was made and were shown around by the chap who animated Tooth- how lucky are we? Then we entered a costume competition and won $1000! Wow!

8th January 2016: Plans for 2016 Tooth's catching up on sleep as she has an exciting and busy year in 2016. Hoping to do Bournemouth Con in March, possibly MCM London in May then we go on tour to USA, including San Diego Comic Con in July. Then we are so lucky and excited to have been invited to somewhere very special near Hollywood... follow us at for latest news, pics and videos.

7th October 2015: We're at MCM London 25th October! Tooth, Baby Tooth and I are coming to MCM Comic Con London Sunday 25th October 2015. We're hoping to have Baby Tooth flying freely in the foyer- that should be fun!

18th April 2015: We're going to MCM London May 24! Yup Tooth and I are coming to MCM London Sunday 24 May. Very excited! See you there!

29th October 2014: Accessories Progress I finished the Tooth Box and Oscar and I finished Baby Tooth in time for MCM London. The tooth box works pretty much as in the movie. When Tooth holds it, brilliant light shines out of it for a moment, then it fades away and the decorated table flips over revealing the teeth. Only Tooth can open it- it has no levers or buttons on the outside.
Baby Tooth actually flies by flapping her wings and we flew her while Tooth was on stage at MCM. She looked really cool flitting round the stage as Tooth came on.

20th October 2014: New plumage! After an incredible effort we got Tooth's new bodysuit made in time for London Film and Comic Con 2014. The colour, intensity and feather placement is so much better and I'm utterly thrilled with it.

22nd August 2014: Tooth Box started! Mechanical parts of Tooth Box in progress.

18th August 2014: Body Print Latest printed sample of the body fabric from Citrus Rain is stunning. The colours are much closer, the contrast and intensity is much improved and the yellow part wraps properly around the neck. Hope we can remake the body in time for MCM ComicCon London.

10th August 2014: Baby Tooth We've got a Baby Tooth that actually flies by flapping her wings. There are however two problems- 1 She doesn't yet quite look like Baby Tooth, so she needs some work doing, and 2 she's a bit uncontrollable and usually ends up stuck in a tree or disappearing over the neighbour's fence!
She's also been chased by the cat on at least one occasion.

1st August 2014: Tooth's wing mechanism and tooth box Having loads of fun trying to make a proper cover for her wing mechanism. The cover is such a strange shape. Current idea is to bash it out of thin aluminium and the vacuum form over it, then probably cover it in feather fabric.

Tooth's head has a pair of ventilation fans but they are quite noisy inside, so I've added a speed control so I can slow them down a bit.

Now working on a tooth box. As usual I want it to work, thus as usual letting myself in for more work and lack of sleep. Anyway it's mostly drawn up on the CAD and looking good in theory. It will contain two motor/gear sets- one to open the outer doors and one to flip the internal table to reveal the teeth.

Wow thanks to all you guys for your comments, and for making me so welcome to the cosplay community. Your feedback is so heartwarming, makes the effort so worthwhile and gives our little team here the encouragement to carry on when the job seems endless, impossible or when it's just all gone wrong!
Really hoping to see some of you at London MCM ComicCon Oct 26.

That’s an impressive piece of engineering. First time I’ve seen a cosplay with an animatronic face

Fantastic use of electronics to create such a realistic model of Tooth! This is by far the best costume I've seen of the character and I can't congratulate you enough for the outcome, the hard work and dedication really shows!

I haven't been on Cosplay Island for a while. We're having so much fun with Tooth and we tend to keep up to date with our latest pictures and videos. So I've only just seen we got showcased! Oh my goodness thank you so much to whoever did that, and thank-you also for the kind comments above- so good of you all! We are hoping this year will be very special. We are hoping Tooth will be at Bournemouth or Liverpool in March, then MCM London. Then she is going on tour to USA and San Diego Comic Con and incredibly she has been invited to a very special place in Glendale California! I wonder who that might be? We are so lucky and so excited!
