Female Bane (TDKR) WIP


I've been working on this female Bane vest concept/prototype for my girlfriend since mid-February. She wanted me to crop it so that it wasn't necessarily "sexy" but utilitarian, and sexy in the way that Tom Hardy's exposed musculature was- so it's kind of like a sports top. She has abs for days ;) I am going to put one more sheet of canvas over the armor plates, add brown piping/edging around it and the coyote air mesh, hand-punch a lot of rivets,hand-saw the brass buckle, (which will lay above the O-ring that connects the front straps,) and most likely add a strap around the bottom designed like the kidney belt. Then finish it all with a lot of graphite powder and hand-weathering. This is resting on a large male mannequin torso, but the vest itself will be sized and tailored so that it exposes the midriff.

It was a practice for my own Bane vest and I think I'll be doing that after seeing this project come together.

Have you seen Nicole Marie Jean on Facebook? She does a great Lady Bane. Looks very similar to your drawing. Good stuff :up

Nice.

"Lady Bane"...I was thinking maybe, "Banette?"

Attached the cord to give a better look at the basic body shape of it: Image

Yes, actually- i was getting updates on Facebook while she was making it. It's a really good design and it looks great overall- but I wanted to try and use materials that were used on the production piece as well as not really make something that accentuates the cleavage like so many gender swapped costumes do. My girlfriend's a kick boxer and she collaborated on form/function with me as far as what would help in that kind of fighting- a kidney belt would be a no-go.

Haha yeah- she's been thinking "Lady Bane" and "BabyBane". I'm supposed to do Bane with her but I think she's gonna attract a lot of attention in it. We'll see how it goes, though.
