WHEN NANAS GO BAD: The Crocheted Bane Mask Breeds A New Kind Of Fear

Love it or hate it, the Bane mask from The Dark Knight Rises sure polarised fans. A new look in horror, the mask will crop up for a few Halloweens to come, but rarely like this. Etsy seller Stitch Finder General, has put a price tag of $93 on their crocheted Bane mask, and while wool isn't exactly the most fear-inducing material in the world, spare a thought for those who are allergic. 

Amazingly stitched, it is wonder of weaving in how close to the actual mask it looks. Should Bane ever decide to swap muscle shirts for a decent cardigan in the months of winter, it will probably make a pretty sweet bone-warming number for DC's resident bone-breaker too.

So who is next for the knit-one pearl-two treatment? Come on Doctor Doom, you know you want it.

 What do you think?

  1. I've seen this before, and while I admire the craftsmanship, I think I'd buy the Cthulhu mask first. This just looks itchy.
