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).
Астра китайская "Призрак оперы"
Популярность мюзикла Уэббера "Призрак Оперы" приводит к тому, что производители разных товаров начинают использовать его символику в своих
корыстных целях. Как, например, производители семян цветов, в частности, бренд "Биотехника". Вот такой сорт китайской астры из серии "Хризантелла"
можно теперь купить в магазинах. Выращивайте Призрака Оперы у себя на грядках, господа!
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.

Russian Nesting Dolls
Natalia Fontrebina, an artist known for her painting on wood and, in particular,
several wonderful collections of nesting dolls - heroes of famous movies, has turned in her work
to The Phantom of the Opera. One of her nesting doll collections is devoted to movie of 2004.
Das Phantom der Oper Sculpture
Thomas Schöne, artist from Rettenbach am Auerberg municipality in Bavaria (Germany), is a very actual specialist of interior
design and has versatile personality. He's well-known by his artworks (from oil-painting to comics), sculptures, optical illusions,
marionettes, etc. One of his piece of art - mass-produced, by the way - is a bronze image of Erik, the Phantom of the Opera.
300 items (44 sm), made of traditional bronze and statuary bronze, are offered for sale on artist's site.
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!
The rest of pictures (ADULTS ONLY! 18+ strictly!)
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?

A sheep named The Phantom
This lovely sheep was named The Phantom, and you may guess why. Just look at its face! It was born in February 2015 at Paul Phillips'
farm (Kimbolton, Herefordshire, England). Picture by Henry Nichols.
And it's not the first herbivorous animal Phantom. On May 2007 photographer Dave Hamster uploaded via Flickr his picture of a similar
sheep with the Phantom of the Opera tag.
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.

waiting for her, but she’ll never come back ...
