Lightbulb Suggestions for non-seeing mask

I'm planning to cosplay Eve from Mass Effect 3.

Problem is... Krogan's aren't built to accomodate humans and they eyes are going to be pretty hard to see out of.

So anyone have any suggestions on how to SEE while where this without looking unrealistic?

EVE is fairly done-up in hoods and veils. If you construct her head to sit on top of yours like a helmet, you could adjust it so that you actually see through the veil on her chin/neck using a translucent fabric. Then you can make her face as accurate as possible without worrying about details like making it a mask per-se.

With masks like this I think you usually see out of the mouth, not the eyes. Keep the mouth open a little so you can see out and that should solve you problems, assuming the head is tall enough that it will look proportionally correct (which it should, they have pretty big heads).

Like the costumes below. Notice that the mouth is open so the wearer can see out.
This is also how it's usually done with masks such as Admiral Ackbar and other characters with large heads.

Thanks guys! Considering that like Noose said, Eve's done up in veils, I can probably make the veil covering her mouth see through.
