I cannot believe I'll be getting braces in just over 3 weeks. It's kinda scary thinking about it, actually. After so many years of pain and other bullshit, it's the beginning of the end! Scared but super excited!
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

It's not so much pain but odd pleasure and turns into soreness.  Definitely get the bite wafers. Avoid gum, or anything chewy. Get the flossing tool with the pick, so much easier to floss with or a water pick. It's odd at first having metal in your mouth. When you get your braces off you should get a retainer. Make sure you wear it as prescribed. Some people don't wear it, causing  your teeth to misalign again. Good oral hygiene!  Oh, you will also  feel like you have a lot of room in your mouth after the braces come off and a bit soreness  when they are taken off. I had mine for about 1 year.

I'm planning on getting Invisalign sometime in the near future. I know they're nothing compared to braces but I too am afraid of the metal ones. I will say though, from friends I've known who got them they said they might be somewhat uncomfortable but it's worth it. I wish you good luck with it!

Omg, I was as scared as you are but you shouldn't be at all. For me, my teeth were really crooked and I've had 8 teeths removed. But after 1 year of treatment, I can say I'm glad I have braces. It hurts the first months but you get used to it really fast. I wish you good luck! It's all for the better, after that, you'll be super happy.

Avoid anything Chewie! Having to go to a dentist after pulling off a bracket with a minty is painful, physically and financial.

For the first months you'll have difficulty eating and talking, but after a while you'll feel it to be normal. The worst is getting small cuts in your mouth, they will happen from time to time, so have a mouth-wash-healer for it available.

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.

Braces are well worth it to fix any problems you may have with your teeth. Also as a person that does cosplay the fans like it when you smile. :D (Big Grin)

I recommend not cutting the wires.

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.

I Never Stopped Eating Things I Shouldn't 'POPCORN FOR LIFE' Lol But I Was Lucky I Never Broke Them, You Need To Be Careful Though Because If They Break You Need To Keep Them On Longer.  Anyway I Recommend Ice Cream Or Frozen Yogurt After Every Tightening 1 So The The Cold Might Deaden The Pain A Bit And 2 It Tastes AWESOME ^_^
