What's it like having braces, guys? Any tips on surviving lol?
In the meantime, I'm working on several costumes which will be shot in the upcoming month/s. Elsa's coronation gown, a couple of secret costumes, and many more on the way. Super happy that college is finally over so I can focus on all these outfits and on my career.
Also, go check out this hilarious vid by AmenoKitarou!
It's a spin-off of "let It Go" from Frozen, poking some fun at the cosplay drama. Laughing at dramu and focusing on the better things in life is the message!.... or take what you will of it. Up to you XD
PS: I don’t think I’m going to make it to Australia in the next few years unless I write a really good novel. If I do happen to get to your part of the world I will be bringing Zombie Bit Me (see is on DA) with me maybe you to can do some epic cosplay together.
Other than that any food that you don't really have to chew or that isn't to warm is needed to survive after tightening.
Also, don't be afraid to smile. I was self-conscious about my braces and smiled with my mouth closed for photos. This just looked awkward and forced, and looking back, I really regret it. There's nothing wrong with having braces on your smile, and at the end of the day you're still gorgeous as hell, braces or not!
And most importantly, don't be scared about it. Yeah, having braces on isn't the greatest thing in the world, but they're really not so bad. You get used to them pretty quickly, and the soreness usually isn't that bad. Most of the time, you won't even notice them. And be aware that the instant you get them off, the very first thing you'll do is run your tongue over your teeth. I had mine for just over two years, and it was the strangest damn thing to have my teeth feel smooth again.
I look forward to seeing your future secret projects!
Confidence wise I've never really been a smiler but it did make me less wanting to go out partying, not sure if this is a good or a bad thing but I had them while I was at acting school so that made me confront the issue a bit but I still wasn't that happy about trying to hit on members of the fairer sex with them on. Might be different for girls due to the gender politics but at the end of the day they are only on for a limited time and you are stunning anyway. Just got to keep that mind and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
So... basically, you'll have some discomfort eating hard foods, some of your teeth will feel as if they're loose a bit and others just the opposite. You'll quickly learn that some things are too much work to clean after and make them "special occasions" foods.
Usually whenever you get a readjustment the pain can be a bit annoying but it goes away after a day. Aceteminophen (Tylenol ? Panadol?) or ibuprofen worked for me. And you'll eat soft for the next meal or two.
That little wax they give you if your metal parts are hurting your inner cheeks is a godsend.
And IT'S WORTH IT!
