Incredibly improbable though it may seem, Amanita is not the only person on this forum who has cosplayed a personified bridge.
This Halloween, I went as the personification of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
. I'd been drawing this character for quite some time before I decided I might as well cosplay him.
Here's a drawing: http://mitya.deviantart.com/art/I-ll-Shiv-Ya-191456560
(He's the one being threatened. The guy with the knife is Alcatraz.)
He has a crutch and a knee brace because the bridge's east span has this tendency to break, whether in earthquakes or, more recently, completely at random. The current east span is being replaced by something entirely new, but for the time being, there are some temporary segments and external supports on the existing east part of the bridge.
Here's my costume:
It's not the greatest photo ever, because it was taken at 2 AM, at the end of the party. I was stupid and didn't get any photos at the beginning of the evening.
I'm pretty happy with this, but I'm also planning on tweaking it to look even better. I know I want to redo the shirt so it's slightly less too big for me (and so the light blue doesn't get as washed out), at the very least. I'll probably also redo the pattern on the socks to make it more even, and see if I can find shoes that look more like what I've been drawing. I already found a pair of grey jeans to replace the light blue ones. Shame they already have stitching on the back pockets, because I contemplated doing back pocket stitching to look like some of the little through trusses leading up to the main east span cantilever. So, yeah, I guess that basically implies redoing most of the costume, but I'm ok with that.
I went as a personified geologic fault line for Halloween a few years ago, but the only photo of that was taken after I accidentally opened the car door into my face and gave myself a black eye, so I'm not posting that!
