A tale of two movie masks...
Bane Mask Business Booms Amid Pandemic
Bane masks have apparently become a hot commodity amid the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent requirements enacted by state and local governments, such as in Los Angeles, where residents are now required to wear a mask when going outside for any task.
Plastic adult Bane masks (not approved pandemic wear by medical officials) are sold out on a number of costume sites, including Costume.com, BuyCostumes.com and HalloweenCostumes.com. There are still plastic masks available on Amazon. The U.S. military (having some fun) even noted that Bane masks were not an acceptable face covering during the pandemic.

Horror makeup artist Tom Savini, who worked on the original Friday the 13th film, is crafting protective facemasks based on Vorhees' hockey headwear. Savini created the masks in conjunction with fellow special effects/makeup artist Jason Baker, who worked on The Dark Knight Rises.
Several masks have started to arrive at their destinations, with fans tweeting pictures of themselves wearing them. Baker and Savini's initiative not only helps others practice proper health guidelines, but it's also a great way for fans to represent their love of the classic horror series.
