This homemade costume for men entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Davis, the 'Bane' costume creator:

My costume is based off of Tom Hardy's "Bane" character from the latest batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The vest, armor, belt, etc was all home made from scratch. It contains several materials (including vinyl, nylon, and even some carpet padding) and was all sewn together at home. The mask was molded by GCFX and hand painted at home. I shaved my head and been trying to build muscle so I can look the part! I have put lots of time and effort into this costume to get it to look accurate, so thank you for considering my entry. I feel it applies to both the Homemade Costume and the "Coolest Adult Costume" categories. All of the pictures submitted are of me wearing my home made costume.

Dude that's an awesome costume. Love the details. Making it from scratch is very impressive. I found some pix of Bain and compared you to him. You look more like him than he does. Seriously you guys look like the evil twins. Good job

WOW! Incredible look alike! The fact that it was mostly "made from scratch" is even more impressive!!! It is most definitely a Contest Winner!!!

Dude, you couldn't possibly have done a better job. Almost all from scratch. Hand painted mask. You put a lot into this. I think it would be cool to wear to paintball.

Very impressive. I've seen some nice replica costumes for Bane, and THIS is definitely one of the better ones. Bravo. What material is that being used for the inside/stuffing for the vest if you don't mind me asking. I've been trying to make a GI Joe Retaliation Roadblock vest from scratch.

Hi, I want to make a costume for my boyfriend but I am not sure how to even start. He loves the Bane character. Could you give me a shout to help me out? What you did is amazing. Thank you so much.

Those who want to add a wilder look in their styles then The Dark Knight Rises leathers club bane vest is the right choice for them. Its magnetic looks are purposely designed by the fashion designers to catch the attention of devil looks lovers.
