31 Days of Costumes - October 17, 2012 - The Phantom's costume for the 1990 Charles Dance Film

In 1990 a made for TV mini series of Phantom of the Opera premiered on television, starring Charles Dance. This was my first encounter with the phantom, even though I didn't become a phan until a few years later when I was 11. The phantom's costume is your basic phantom wear, a men's suit, a cape, the gloves and a mask. In this version as well as the Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit Phantom, the phantom wears a full length mask and he picks out a mask that coincides with his mood at the time.
