How much can you see in this mask??

Captain_Marvelous posted on 26 August, 2012 - 11:45
About 80 percent, its a wrestling mask so visability has to be fairly high XD

Ranma1-2 posted on 29 August, 2012 - 18:25
Glad you can actually see. Hey new full body pics look Awesome! Well done you have really developed a great shape. This is a really respectable Bane.

Great costume - relatively simple but very effective. I love the photo with Batman. You both look just perfect.

Captain_Marvelous posted on 24 March, 2013 - 23:33
Bane is 90 percent body and 10 percent costume ;) simple and imposing thanks so much!

Ranma1-2 posted on 25 March, 2013 - 10:24
Yep imposing is the word.. in that face off pic I dont fancy Batmans chances. Great pic! :)

Your photos are really fun! And imposing is indeed right!

Progress Journal

More Tank Progress!

Minor Progress Again sorry for spam XD Starting to get lights and Ting installed on the Venom pack, its a tossup if I can afford EL wire for before the con which sucks but we do what we can, ive got the main feed tube for the back of the head put in and secured the bottle down. Going for that super ghetto back alley look XD but I actually quite like it. Cant do much until the straps are put on properly then its just a case of making the front chest peice.

Venom Tank Progress

Pound Shop Venom Tank progress! bottle and main housing done! just need the El Wire and the main light/pump chamber onto the pack! cant do anything until I get my tie wraps *the bottle is just stuck down for the effect of a photo, it will be much neater on tomoz! XD

Venom Bottle/Tank

Venom tank to go onto the harness! ♥ made the caution logo in Spanish! a little artistic licence as Santa Prisca is where Bane is from and shows strong influence of Spanish collonialists. Not to mention him speaking spanish and portugese! so yeah! minor progress XXD

Starting Venom Pack Today!

Based on a few designs and alot of inspiration and ideas from 4th wall designs Pack I am hoping to modigy an old steampunk flux pack I made into a working lights Venom pack with chasing El wire leading to the back of my mask! the important thing is going to be removing all the stuff off the base of the pack and shortening it then making it strong enough to handle the weight of the venom tank which if im honest will probably be modified from a plastic drinks bottle.

Bane WIP

This is my belt and boots for bane, im using super chunky metal new rocks, im about 6,3/6,4 in them all together so height wise im quite imposing >,< Just need to keep cracking on at weights and at least get some deffinition and size when I do him, it will also be good for Thor :)
