How to Make a Bane Costume

Bane was a terrorist allied with the League of Shadows. Potent in both physical combat and strategic planning, Bane was also an articulate orator and effective military commander. He displayed his personality predominantly through expressions in his eyes. His physique was defined by his mask which inhibited the excruciating pain that agonized his body to bearable levels. He was portrayed by Tom Hardy in The Dark Knight Rises.

1. Obtain a black athletic cup, to form the base of Bane mask. The thin portion will cover the nose and the thick portion will cover the mouth.

2. Use hot glue to stick the pipe cleaners on the right and left side of the cup. Create two horizontal rows across the front of the cup out of the screws. Each row should have four screws positioned vertically. Glue them in place with the hot glue.

3. Measure a length of elastic to reach around your head. Fix the elastic to the two sides of the cup with more hot glue. Cut another strip of elastic that measures from the tip of your nose to a point at the center of the back of your head. At the narrow top portion of the cup, glue one end of the elastic. Attach the other end of the elastic to the other elastic strap with hot glue.
