Costume make up with prop confusion

Hello all! Since I've only been doing full on special effects makeup for under a year and dabbled with it for 2, I still consider myself to be an amateur. I've decided to try and recreate the look below but I do have some questions that I was hoping anyone with more experience could answer.

The main question that's been plaguing me is where I could find those metal spikes that make up her teeth? Do they look like something I could be able to go and buy or do they look custom made? If the latter is the case, would there be some way to recreate the metal that the spikes are made with (since I have zero knowledge of metal work)?

Thank you for any feedback!

Just a thought on this; I don't believe that's actual metal, but thin Plexiglas or acrylic, perhaps with mirrored window film or silvered pvc vinyl on top.

2 reasons why I say that:
1. Weight. Even thin metal adds weight quickly, especially to a facial appliance.
2. Safety. All it would take is one bump into another person, and two people will be going to the hospital.

Thin acrylic and window film can both be purchased at any decent hardware store.

As an afterthought: can you contact whomever posted that picture online, and see if they know anything about that appliance? If they know the wearer, perhaps they might be able to find out for you what was used.
