Hi there! We’re celebrating the new year with a pic of our most recent work!
For Lucca Comics and Games 2016, the biggest con in Italy, we decided to recreate these iconic costumes from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary musical, choosing the UK version, and specifically the 25th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall as our reference. It was one of our first attempts to cosplay something “real”, not coming from a paper page or a cartoon, and it’s been a difficult but satisfying challenge!
The three costumes are made from scratch in collaboration between us. Kinnara has patterned everthing, made the Phantom’s mask and her own costume, as well as a lot of the material hunting quest; Harriet did the sewing for the Phantom and Christine’s costumes; Shu worked at the decoration/ruffles/research department. Makeup and wig/hair styling were also done by us.
Some things (the tutu, the decorations on Christine’s corset, the Phantom’s cape and prosthetics) still need to be improved or added, and we have some big plans for our Phantom stuff for the new year but for the time being, we had a lot of fun. Recreating and wearing such wonderful and illustrious costumes was truly a blast!
