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!

The majority of my cosplay so far has been original characters.

I designed a Victorian inspired costume for a dance hosted at my husband's university called "An Evening In Paris - Dancing At The Moulin Rouge." I wore a Victorian style black shirt that I found at a thrift store, underneath a bustier that I beaded and embellished by hand. I made the skirt, bustle (which you can barely see in the photos,) fascinator/hat, and jewelry. I wore grey ankle boots I had in my closet, and carried a vintage black velvet clutch.

I also put together some last minute steampunk costumes for myself and my husband for steampunk weekend at Scarborough Renaissance Festival.

Then there's the mermaid/pirate costumes I made and assembled for myself and my husband for a trunk or treat event a couple of years ago. My mermaid costume and shell were Ariel inspired, but I didn't want to *be* Ariel. I made a tail/skirt, shell "bra" (pinned to a nude tank top for kid friendliness,) fin ear cuffs, and jewelry for myself. (Plus a really cheap wig that doesn't look terrible considering it cost about five bucks.) The shell I'm sitting in is made from foam core. (A hole is cut in the bottom half to fit the top of a stool.)
I altered a couple of thrift store finds for my husband's costume, and added tons of accessories, and his ARMA waster.

I made a Lord of the Rings inspired original design. I named it after an actual character from the Silmarillion but the design is completely my own. You guys can check it out here:

I'm currently working on my original Guardian based off the Guardians of Childhood books. Her name is Aurai. She represents the West Wind and is the Guardian of Warmth and Security.

Oh jeez, every time I click on this thread, there's my horrible cosplay from 2010 right at the top of the page, ahhhh!
I've cosplayed a lot of my own OCs since that dreadful picture. I'd like to think I've gotten at least a little bit better at it.

Not yet, but hopefully it will be done soon.

It's nice seeing all of these cosplays, it gave me more confidence to get Aurai done
