How I made Bane and Batman costumes for the Dark Knight Rises trailer spoof.


Can you make me a Bane mask?
I don't have plans to make Bane masks for sale, just in case of copyright or whatnot. I know there are already a lot of masks out there, but I'm looking towards different projects right now.

Do you have a link to a pictures of Batman I can use to trace the armor?
I used this one for most of the pieces.

Why was Bane so small?
It was a spoof trailer. We thought it made sense. Heh. Actually, it was my friend Kevin, who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's. When he started chemo, and had to shave his head, he said "I could be Bane", and that's how we got the idea for the video.

Where do you get foamie sheets?
Foamie sheets (9x12 in.) can be found at most Wal-mart stores for 50 cents each. Larger sized sheets (12x18 in) can be found in craft stores.

Where did you get the protective wire wraps (tubes on Bane's mask)?
I found them at Harbor Freight. Most hardware stores should have them, or something similar.

Where did you buy the gloves and mesh fabric?
I bought on eBay:

Where can I buy liquid latex?
It's best to buy liquid latex for mask-making on online stores, like eBay, or from other effects product suppliers. These suppliers usually have it in stock:
If you can find a local source, that can be cheaper.
MAKE SURE that if you buy latex, it's specifically latex for mask-making. Other more common "molding " latex products are not safe on skin.
