The Phantom of the Opera & Christine Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
The Phantom of the Opera was believed by many to be a ghost. But he is actually a disfigured man who made the cellars of the opera house his ghost. He is also a musical genius who helped Christine get the part she wanted and trained her to sing so well.
Unfortunately, he’s not very social and is easily jealous which makes him lash out on everyone, including Christine (who he lets go in the end). Christine’s singing and the Phantom’s musical talent is a phenomenon to behold!
The Phantom goes through all the lengths to hide his disfigurement by making sure that he is impeccably dressed. He wears a dapper outfit consisting of a white dress shirt, black vest, black coat, black dress pants, black Oxfords, white gloves, black cape, and a personalized white half-mask.
Christine Daae is more humble, wearing a white Renaissance gown.
