I would have to disagree actually, the pads on the SIQ vest are generic to every model that is made. The only difference is the sizing of the vest. As for the SIQ vest its beautiful BUT insanely expensive and will drop in price eventually when the need for them dies down.



Your going to have a really hard time getting into the vest thats for sure. I had mine made before I started my Gym routine at 44 inch chest and I am a 45.5 now and its harder for me to get in BUT mine has been stretched and worn a bunch.
Damn thanks guys I'm just looking for an very accurate vest and I don't know if I should bid on it =\

What a shame man. I actually was speaking to the guy about this. but if he modified it from wtf it was before then I don't think it's worth it. Why in the world did he have to mess with it. It was perfectly fine the way your vests were. Just a little weathering and it was perfect. Guess back to saving up for a SiQ vest I go =/

I'm not implying that theres some lost canon somewhere in which bane goes to footlocker and picks up a shirt, but the PROP they used in the movie looks a bit like under armour. It is just an option. Also you may not be aware of this, but under armour is EXTREMELY prominent in the military. I honestly forgot that they were mainly sports oriented.

Oh, and how would under armour not be "bane like" but a faded glory shirt from walmart would? Lol

Not trying to start an argument over this. I never said the walmart one was bane like, it was just the best I could find. Thats why I asked for some help for a more accurate one on these forums. Thanks for the input.

That vest on ebay looks like a costumebase vest with all that silver on the pads. Not a fan of what he did to it.

The importance is the right texture the vest shows off and the SiQ looks like they nailed it or they are really close. Sizing is probably the wildest thing most vest attempts haven't gotten down yet. Hopefully the new bluray release will also pack some good BTS footage of Hardy.

I think if you're going for the plane scene look, then a black slightly tighter fitting long sleeve will work...no matter what it is. As long as you have anything better than a rubies mask no one will question you. That's my fall back for halloween if I can't get my vest finished in the next week and a half

Another way could also be to cut out the shape of the plates on the vest and sew the fabric used for the plates on the back and try to turn them inside out with enough batting..
Thanks! We're playing with a couple ideas. One is to do a full layer of batting in the piece, and then I would understitch the armor on around it's edges (so it would be invisible. I'd need one hell of a thimble and about three hours, but it's a viable option.) Then I'd quilt in the ditch. MJStephens (my hubby, this is his vest here) thought maybe to cut out the shape of the armor pieces out of the batting, so that in sewing down the edges of the armor, the vest seen at the sides of the armor is thicker inherently.

The armor construction itself is getting bounced around some, too, with my husband's initial idea being a layer of styrene, then a layer of 1/2" foam, then wrapping that (like you'd upholster a headboard) with the vinyl that gets seen. There are several issues with this for me. 1: how do you attach all the layers without adding lumpy thicknesses (hot glue or fabric glue), sharp bits (staples), etc, and even still again, how do you attach it to the vest (I DO NOT BELIEVE VELCRO IS A GOOD IDEA) and still move credibly.

Dilemmas all around.

RDMaul...I would love you forever for any insight. (Don't tell MJStephens, he'll never know...)


...D'OH!

As much as I disagree with anyone shaving their head, I suppose Bane is an exception.

Here is an update on my sad excuse of a sculpt:


Next days will be dedicated to smoothing everything up and do the final touch-ups..

Frustrated how everything turned out.. The head-cast was warped a lot towards the back of the head and it is very flat-headed, which screwed up the whole positioning of the side. I hope once this is cast up, that actually wearing it, stretches everything in order a bit, but don't have much hope..

The clay dried up considerably already and I hope that that and my sloppy working doesn't bite me in the arse at the end...

Your two main problems were:

1: bad life cast.
2: you used wet clay.

You would have had an infinitely easier time with just a generic head, and some sulfur-free modeling clay bro.

Ya, I guess the hugest problem was the very poor head-cast I'd say. Lesson learned even if friends want a budget build, don't save at the wrong end. We'll see what I can get out of this when smoothing. The clay is still workable so I hope the heat and humidity from the plaster will reactivate it enough to get everything out of mold safely. Question of interest. Can you mold oil-based clay in plaster too? Do you heat it up to get out of the mold or use alcohol?
