Favourite non-replica christine costumes, as requested by anon:
SLAVEGIRL: There hasn’t really been a non-replica version I’ve been crazy about. But I like the Hungarian one for the ornamental “bra” combined with the torn fabric skirt. It moves well, and has cool details.
ELISSA: The Czech ones all the way! So unbelievably grand.
DRESSING GOWN: A tie between the Czech one with a corseted waist, and the 2004 movie (mirror) one for its delicate details.
IL MUTO MAID/SERAFIMO: I like the nice period flair of the Polish one, and the palette is kinda… muddy yet fresh. ‘t is cool.
ROOFTOP: I’m not really crazy about any versions here either. But I do like that both the Hungarian and Polish versions feature Christine still in her boy costume from the opera (with a cloak on top). Nice nod to Leroux.
MASQUERADE: Honestly, I don’t like a single non-replica version.
WISHING DRESS: Not really a fan of any of the dresses here either. But I do like the tailored, hooded jacket for the Managers office in Poland.
AMINTA: I can’t stand any of the non-replica Aminta costumes. UGH.
WEDDING DRESS: They don’t even have a Christine wedding dress in Hungary and Poland. Neutral to the Czech one. However, I ADORE the 2004 movie one. Wonderful silhouette, use of materials + period flair.

My take on Erik from Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera.
The outfit was inspired by Tom Hiddelston’s character in the upcoming film Crimson Peak. He just looks so Phantom-y!
The Phantom of the Opera AND Benedict Cumberpatch.
Be still my heart. ✹
If you post about musicals, especially The Phantom of the Opera, reblog and I will follow you. I need more bway and poto on my dash :D
New piece I just finished. Music of the Night scene, inspired by Alex Ross’s ‘Tango With Evil’, with influences from the Gaston Leroux novel and a couple of my own little ideas. :)
