DIY Bane Cosplay with LED Venom Tubes #ElectronicHalloween
If you’re attending a costume party for Halloween this weekend, it’s not too late to put together a costume. Redditor Jnovuse assembled a Bane ensemble for the holiday and knocked it out of the park. He based the look on the comic book version of the character, complete with a luchador mask. He pieced together the clothes and accessories but made the mask and the green venom tubes by hand. He explained that he used LEDs for the props:
[I used] battery operated LEDs in a Neon Green tube. The tube started out clear, I had to use Neon Green liquid to make it look like Bane’s Venom.
The mask was made from three types of fabric. You can see a close-up picture below and the build process at Imgur.
