Since my Guy Manuel helmet got FUBAR'd due to a freak rainstorm, I only had a few days to get something done for this weekend's Wizard World in Chicago. Short on funds and materials, I was inspired by Demolition's build and decided to make my own Bane mask using extra foam and materials I have laying around.
However, I have a soft spot for the comics version of Bane, particularly the one from Knightfall but I also love TDKR Bane and his mask. So, I decided to combine the two. So obviously, I cannot claim any type of screen or print accuracy but I would like to think that the finished product will be unmistakable as to what it is.
I forgot to take pics of early WIP but I will start off with this:
It is made out of EVA foam mats initially using a Noob Saibot PDO template and everything else was freehand, then coated with PVA glue then polyurethane spray. A couple of coats of primer filler and I then sealed the many, many gaps with vinyl spackle and some sanding with medium grit and another coat of primer.
The "hoses" are RCA cables and a plastic ribbed hose I found in the tool shed.
I have gotten a lot more progress done but will post at later time (sleep beckons). I am confident I will have it complete for this weekend's convention. Questions, constructive criticism, comments are welcome and encouraged.
