Hey guys so I have been a member here lurking for awhile and wanted to finally contirbute to the community with a Build I am working on. I recently got persuaded by a friend to put togethor a Bane costume from TDKR. I know there is the "definitive" Bane thread but it seems no one wants to contirbute in there so....Here is my Thread!!
Here is a list of what I have done:
Mask: Original Mask Gotham City FX- painted, just need to hit with sealer and its finished, New mask Todd Cook Designs
Vest: Being made by a Professional tactical vest maker- works for a defense company who specializes in making body armor
Leather Wrist guard: being made by custom leather maker Thomas Boyer from TNXB Creations- Should be done in a few weeks
Black Undershirt- took a old black plain sweatshirt and cut the collar and the wrist elastic off, I need to weather it a bit more but it actually works pretty good.
Pants: UR Tactical Replica Cry Precision Gen 2-ur-tactical.com - OPS INTEGRATED BATTLE PANTS W/PADS IN BLACK The Gen 1's that Bane wears are impossible to find especially in black, they were issued to Navy Seals in 2009...so unless you were a Navy Seal and were active in 2009 good luck. I have color stripped and redyed the pants I have to look the greyish blue color that is seen in the promo and normal lighting
Boots: Tan Vietnam jungle boots: I am going to add the proper straps and buckles to these and weather them up to look the right color. I also though about dremeling the sole down to the flat look of the screen used boots.
I have a few really poopy shots from the camera, the "facebook look at me pics" BUT its all I have right now, I will update this week when I sit down and work on the boots. Go easy fellas its my first thread.
