Yes, The Daily News is reporting that young people overseas are buying what they call "fashion braces" meaning fake metal-and-rubber brackets for $100 each. They even come in patterns like Hello Kitty and Mickey Mouse. How they get them to stay on, I don't know—apparently, they come in DIY kits, but the process or how long they last isn't clear to me.
