I am so excited to see everyone's costumes! 
This year I decided that we should be the TMNT villians, Shredder and Krang.  It started as a lazy plan to paint Krang (the disembodied brain and owner of the awesome Technodrome) on the guy's stomach.  He wasn't so excited about trying to go out without a shirt, so I turned to my own crafty brain and mostly things I had laying around the house (and a lot of duct tape!).
Well, time for pictures and then some details!

Krang is a fabric and batting creation with a cardboard "house" that is covered in a yellow dog food bag, and a tiny joystick!

Shredder is mostly tagboard, duct tape and a lot of staples.

With a thrifted grey polo and black t-shirt scraps for belt (which was a tiny fannypack for my ID and camera), oh and some awesome sparkly purple for the cape.
We were a hit at the bar, and I was super proud this year.  Thanks for looking!

You guys. That's seriously awesome!  Grin The Krang looks so well-made. And a female Shredder? Totally hot in my book!

Thank you, everyone!  I had so much fun making this, and felt pretty awesome/tough/hot wearing it out. 
I am loving seeing everyone's work this year!

I agree with padfoot, your costumes are best described by one word, Awesome!

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!
