Complete Your Bane Costume With a Mask

bane mask

The Dark Knight Rises made the character Bane pretty popular. He originally appeared in the comics, but the most recognizable Bane is the one seen in the film. If you put together the basics of his costume, you need to add the mask to go the extra mile, and Instructables user justinlamoureux spent about 30 hours and less than $30 making one. He used a tent mattress for the base of the mask which just proves you can use just about any material in cosplay. Whatever works!

He carefully made a pattern by measuring his face and used reference photos to add the piping in the front. Here’s how he began:

With the basic shape cut from the mattress material, I now had to add pieces of foam onto the mask to create the pipe couplers. Carving with the knives was not enough and I had to use a pair of scissors.

The pipes were actually quite easy to form. I was worried that I would abandon the project once I got to this step but with extra attention to the angles, I cut the basic shapes of the pipe and used scissors to cut out the 90′ angles of the profiles. In other words, once the rectangular shapes of “pipe” were cut (and I was happy with the angles,) I created a rounder look to them by removing the 90’s resulting in 2 x 45′ angles. This step of the project took a lot of time and I wasted a few pieces of “pipe.”
