Jenny Greenteeth

Prosthetics Test

I was interested in designing a prosthetics make-up based on a lesser known folkloric character and stumbled across Jenny Greenteeth. She is a river crone from English folklore whose legend spoke of how she lurked in river banks, hidden amongst the weeds, and would grab at the ankles of young children and the elderly, dragging them to an underwater grave. In the sculpt, I wanted to achieve a blend of fantasy and reality, incorporating human and reptilian features given her river dwelling nature.
