How to cover a mask with feathers?

I'm making a mask similar to the one in the picture (whole head) and already have the structure of the mask planned out. What i don't know is how to attatch the feathers. What would be the best way to do this (cover the whole head)? Glue? Hand sewing? Any suggestions are helpfull.

What are you going to be attaching the feathers to?

If it is a material that will accept hot glue, I would use that.

If it is a material that will accept sewing then I would do that.

If it will accept both then I would use both for security.
+2 ..any tacky glue should work.  Hot glue is the bomb.

Start at the back/bottom of the head and work towards the front/top to get the most realistic layering.
