I am going to dress up as Beaker from the Muppets for Halloween. For those unfamiliar with the Muppets he looks like this:
Basically I need to make a large mask/helmet that will fit over my head. The overall construction would be fairly simple where the hair, eyes, and mouth are concerned.
My issue is I don't know how I can control the mouth. I want it to be able to move without any obviously showing controls. Since I am against the method his mouth is normally controlled on the puppet I need to make it open somehow. Closing seems simple enough if I uses elastics to pull it closed again. I am unsure how I can get some sort of cord in place to pull it open without being seen.
In a perfect world it would be something that I could use without having to place my hands need my chest for a pull cord but I am not holding out for that.
