Hmmm, almost there...

Always plan before hand. Traced the removable shield, scanned and did alittle math to figure on the "pixel" placement for the glowing eyes & mouth.

The EL sheets with the "light green" coloring sheet. The inverter has 2 flash modes & a steady mode. The slower flashing mode pulses almost like the cursor on green screen computers.

Thanks. Though the window tint isn't fully flat (bubbles) but in the dark hard to tell. Just have to paint the frame of the mask and insert the shield in. Then will get better pic.

Holy ****. I just now went and looked at this EL tape stuff. How have I not known about this before? I feel a netduino project coming on.

I hope I didn't create a monster now.

Could have done a few things better. Moved the eyes down & in a block each. Tried to apply the window tint a little better. But came out decent for a first attempt. May try to take it apart in a few weeks to adjust the eyes in some.

video of the "flashing" though irl it's a more consistent flashing

Went to trunk & treat events with my sister's family (niece, nephew & bro in law), got some looks of people liking the mask. Some thought I was a robot, had to explain was a computer hacker. Even had 3 girls (though jr high age roughly, unfortunately) came up to me and were asking about it.

You know. What use would a mask be to someone who is without a face? Where would they even wear it? On their skull stump?

they may be faceless but they're not headless.

Believe me, you'd rather I wear the mask. Unless you fancy some nightmares. Which can be arranged.
