This project shows you how to create a "living" mask, great for display, a holiday party, or for a spooky Halloween costume.

For this project you will need a mask that you're willing to modify. This foam reindeer mask is excellent for this purpose, because it is easy to cut and poke holes in for the purposes of outfitting it with electronics.
