Internet, take control...take control of your costumes.
In other words, if you're one of the thousands of people who are planning to dress up as the version of Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, as played by Tom Hardy, do something clever. Just putting on the Goatse mask and coat doesn't do it. You'll just be another faceless member in an unwelcome crowd. We're only 16 days away from Halloween, so you'd better start planning now. Here are 12 people who are doing right, whether because their costumes are clever or funny or they've staged a shrewd enactment. (We're only including Hardy's Bane.)
And remember, if you cop out and go with "normal Bane," your punishment will be severe.
