Been working on this a long time...

The mask is from Graphix Monster, The coat and pants are from Banepants, the vest is a heavily modified costumebase vest (that will be explained later), the Wrist guard is from TNXB Creations, an the boots are some old packer boots I purchased and took to have the leather straps added.

I'll start with the mask.
It's urethane rubber, very comfortable to wear, and the holes in the mouth grill make breathing and speaking very easy.

With the coat I took two segments of a white wire hanger, and hot glued them in to the fabric to give it a sort of frame so it wouldn't fall over as easily. It works fairly well.



Then for the vest, I took a can of spray paint to alter the color to be more brown, and weathered the armor padding with acrylic paint.

Then I worked on replacing the white belts attached to the buckle, and added some nylon webbing behind them.

Then I redid the shoulder straps using some olive drab mini pistol belts.


Boots...

Wrist guard...


Annnnnnnd....done.


Hopefully I'll get some good pictures from the convention I'm going to in a month.



EDIT:
Some updated pictures-

That is stunning. I really want a Bane mask myself too but the ones I have found have been pretty crappy quality. I don't expect exact figures but may I ask, was it expensive to get a custom made mask please? I expect 'yes' but you never know...

Wasnt much more expensive than the others I've seen, but he's made a lot of upgrades so I don't want to give a price in case he's changed it, but he's pretty easy to get in touch with on his Facebook page, just look up graphix monster.

nice job modding the cosplay vest, looks way better. You might wanna soak that wrist guard in warm water and wear it nice and tight during a few workouts to break it in quick to your arm shape.

This looks awesome man!!! The mask looks incredible, and you really did a great job modding the vest. Also the wire in the collar was an awesome idea! :thumbsup

Nicely Done! Finally someone took that awful cosplay vest and made it look nice!
Thanks! Needless to say, I had my work cut out for me, trying to figure out how to make that thing look better. Took a few months and a TON of hot glue, but I think to think I made some good improvements.
