After I finished my mask, I decided to do some Phantom of the Opera inspired photography. I gathered some things that I thought go along with the story, and I placed some black satin against my dresser for the backdrop. The rose isn't real, but I did put a ring and a black ribbon on it like in the movie!
The parchment is actually a replica of the Emancipation Proclamation, but I thought it looked Phantom-ish...if I covered up the Abraham Lincoln signature
Well I hope you like it, and I'll be doing more Phantom photography once I finish my Christine costume and the cloak that Erik wears!
P.S. Just a note...In case anyone is wondering why there is a violin in the picture, it's actually there for a few reasons. One reason is because Christine's father is a well known violinist, so I thought that would add to the photo. Also, the Phantom plays the violin in the book by Gaston Leroux when Christine goes to her father's grave; there's a chapter called "The Enchanted Violin"; so that's why there's the violin! But since Erik is known more for playing the organ, I'll be doing some photography with a small organ soon!!
