Hi Dotti.

You can build an articulated mask directly over a balaclava (skin-tight 
stretch ninja hood). The botom jaw piece is built separately from the rest, 
and has flat wide seamstress elastics linking them with more tension. So 
that when the wearer talks, the exagerated movements of his jaw will 
translate in the mask too.

For the eyeblinks, you can build them anyway you choose to, as long as the 
system does not require too much depth behind the eyes, and the activation 
can be done by string or better yet, a flexible cable control that can be 
pressed in the hidden puppeteer's hand.
