Mask advice
I'm planning (or actually, already working) on this cosplay

The most notable thing is of course his head.
I've been thinking about how to create it, and my idea is to use a black zentai hood for the mouth inside and put the eye on there, and create a latex mask to put over it.
Now I'm just wondering, would latex be stable enough, so that I don't get teeth that would flop around or pretty much fall down.
What could I otherwise make it from?

I was really rubbish with latex when I used it but that was more through user error then anything else

I would suggest making it out of card/craft foam or papermachie (or combinations of the three). There fairly rigid, cheap and you can make a circle shape quite easily. As long as you seal it with pva glue it becomes water resistant.

That might indeed be a better idea
But I also wonder now, does anyone have experience with Instamorph or anything like it?
Could I perhaps use that, and make it sort of like this

(viewed from the side, the black inside will be a zentai hood)

So that I would basically cut of the bottom jaw part and make it attachable to the rest, so that I can put the mask over my head and then put the jaw on it?
