Review : Batman - The Dark Knight Rises - Bane 3/4 Mask

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises is Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment to his supremely popular Batman franchise. While some previous Batman incarnations have featured fantastical characters, Nolan’s Batman is a series grounded in reality with believable characters. This adds an even greater sense of fear and dread, especially when it comes to characters like Bane. Bane is instantly recognizable for his distinctive mask, and this replica by Rubie’s Costume is a superb replica of the one worn by Tom Hardy in The Dark Knight Rises. Although aimed at children aged 3 and up, this Bane 3/4 Mask is popular amongst adults with smaller hat sizes. The adult version of the mask can be rather large and uncomfortable on some people. With a flexible and comfortable design, The Dark Knight Rises: Bane 3/4 Mask is one of the more convincing costume masks of the summer. Features of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises: Bane 3/4 Mask * 8 x 3 x 7 inches, * Suitable for 36 months and up, * 3/4 mask, * Flexible vinyl design. Is the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises: Bane 3/4 Mask Worth Buying? This Bane mask is intended as a child’s mask, suitable for ages 3 and up, and although it has a marketed upper age of 12 – 14 years, the design and material of the mask is very flexible, and this makes it suitable for everyone from small children to adults with smaller hat sizes. While flexible, the vinyl material is comfortable enough for extended periods of play. Many masks of similar design can get extremely hot in minutes, but the Bane 3/4 Mask is designed to prevent excess sweating. The mask itself is not an exact replica of the one advertised in pictures. In the marketing photos, there are two gaps in the side strap as it approaches the mouthpiece. This strap is full intact without any slit when you receive your mask, and a sharp knife and a steady hand will be need to full replicate the stock appearance. Similarly, some of the smaller pieces around the mouthpiece alternate between silver and gold. This is not something to be concerned about as both colors suit the mask and the difference is barely noticeable. The Bane mask is one of the year’s most instantly recognizable costume masks, and it’s pleasantly surprising to find such a well-designed and well-made replica mask available so soon after the film’s release. If you or your child is a fan of Batman, then you won’t be disappointed with this mask.
