This is a mask with a soft keyboard in it.  It was created using a toy piano and textiles.  I created soft buttons and replaced the keyboard buttons with these.  The speaker is embedded in the mask as well.

 That sound kind of reminds me of Animal Crossing.

Nice concept.

what is Animal crossing?
 Animal Crossing is a videogame, that's all. There's a bunch of anthropomorphic animals though, and the 'animal voice' that is played when you're talking  to them has that sort of wonky squeaking. I don't really know how to describe the sound.
Probably means the game animal crossing. Although don't take my word for it. I haven't played the game so I wouldn't know how it would relate. I just know there is a video game titled animal crossing.

That's great - did you take enough pictures to post an Instructable as well?

Unfortunately I didn't take enough pictures for an instructable.  But I'm hoping I still have some of the pieces around so i can add one soon.
Good - I am sure it would be popular.

Why not make another mask?  An octopus has eight legs, eight notes in an octave...

Oooh, super cool!  I also love the look of this.  I'd love to see an instructable one one of the other masks since you're making several anyway!

Very cool. And I like the glove idea, pie_red.

Using this concept why not make gloves? Use the soft buttons at the end of the gloves. you could play the piano on a wall!

It would be nice to play it against the wall
COOL!
