FANTA... of the Opera

В октябре 2017 года всемирно известный производитель напитков "Coca-Cola" выпустил лимитированную серию напитков "Fanta" специально к Хэллоуину. Уже второй год подряд они выпускают подобные серии совместно с художником-дизайнером Noma Bar. В этом году они объединились со студией Universal, чтобы выпустить напитки с линейкой четырёх "монстров Юниверсал": Мумия (апельсиновая Фанта), Человек-Невидимка (виноградная Фанта), Невеста Франкенштейна (ананасовая Фанта) и Призрак Оперы версии 1943 года (клубничная Фанта). Так что теперь "Призрака Оперы" можно не только слушать и смотреть, но и пить.
P.S. А глаза у него — клубнички.

Бюст от "Dellamorte & Co."

Компания "Dellamorte & Co." специализируется на изготовлении статуэток, украшений и предметов интерьера в мрачном классическом, готическом или викторианском стиле. Как следует из названия, тематика их произведений связана со Смертью, иногда их продукцию используют для оформления похоронных обрядов и мест захоронений, но чаще — просто для оформления интерьера. Неудивительно, что Призрак Оперы, сам частенько сравнивавший свой облик со Смертью, попал в поле зрения дизайнеров компании. Бюст "Phantom of the Opera" можно приобрести в гипсовом варианте или в бронзе (стоит 50 долларов без учёта доставки).

Professional make-up

Definitely, many of us try to create Phantom make-up, and more often fans do it for cosplay or themed party like Halloween. We can’t keep every version of make-up — and it absolutely doesn't make sense. But there is one make-up we'd like to tell you about. Richard Redlefsen, professional make-up artist from Hollywood decided to reconstruct canonical Lon Chaney’s make-up from 1925 movie — but create it with modern tools and requirements of modern film industry.

@This makeup is an homage to two very influential makeups in my life. The 1925 Lon Chaney Phantom which has always been a iconic and a favourite makeup of mine. As well as, the Andrew Lloyd Weber musical version. [...] I wanted to do a more clinical and less theatrical version of it. This is what I came up with." — Richard Redlefsen.

Richard Redlefsen‘s demo at Monsterpalooza 2016 was of this Phantom of the Opera makeup on actor Chris Riggi.

Erotic bronze sculpture

Bronze sculpture again, and from Germany again, and is called Das Phantom der Oper...again! But here the similarity with previous showpiece stops. The fact is that this statue is erotic, I'd say porny. It was created by Don Alberto Carlos and demonstrates the Phantom and nude maiden (Christine probably) in his arms. The cloak of the Phantom is closed. When it's closed — everything is OK even modest. But if only he opens his cloak... we can see in every detail what this sweet pair do. Add to this point the size: 82x31 sm and 26 kg. And imagine how deeply enthusiastic collectioner should be to own this. But such collectioners can still be found: this statue was sold on ebay for 3.980 Euros!

Designer mirrors collection

Modern artist and sculptor Helidon Xhixha presents very extravagant esthetic manner in art. He likes to transform literary characters into designer things. This time he created Phantom of the Opera and his muse Christine Daae as mirrors for Fiam Italia company.

Together with architects Dante Oscar Benini and Luca Gonzo he didn't shape fragile material in any particular shape, using glass to create sculptures made of light. Phantom and Christine mirrors personify tragedy of suffering soul, devoted to music and love, being in constant esthetic tension, which is common for modern art problematics.

A Snow Globe at the Piccadilly Circus

In December of 2013 in order to protect the Eros sculpture in London’s Piccadilly Circus from the vandals a huge inflatable 'snow globe' was erected. Over 120 years the sculpture making a list of the Historical Heritage had been repeatedly attacked and it is believed that it is particularly exposed to the risk of a drunken attack on the Christmas Eve.
The Westminster Council earlier defended it during the festive period covering by billboards, but now, since 2012, it was decided to erect a 12-meter transparent globe to protect the statue and the bronze fountain for such a period. Of course, at the base of a 'snow globe' an advertisement is lit... Guess which one?

Big Pig Gig: Phantom of the Slopera

Unusual event occurred in Cincinnati, Ohio, United States in 2000. In 19th century Cincinnati was the center of meat packing industry and and the city's nickname was Porkopolis (the city of pigs). To recall this glory days officials decided to display the pig statues around the city. The Big Pig Gig public art exhibit inspired more than 50 schools, as a result, the project attracted 425 entries. Hundreds full-sized fiberglass pigs were installed downtown, while others were stationed in Newport and Covington, Kentucky. Exhibition continued half of the year, and later a number of those statues were sold on eBay for charity, and others decorated airport, hotels and other buildings in Cincinnati. In 2012 organizers repeated this event, but in smaller form, with only 100 sculptures.

Our attention was attracted by one of pigs from Broadway series. Sculpture named Phantom of the Slopera was created by artist Lisa Molyneaux.
