Phantom of the Opera (Dem Bones Haunted Halloween Contest)
Behold! The phantom haunts the Paris Grand Opera (and the Dem Bones Haunted Halloween Contest in the category Classic Monster Vig). This is of course the Lon Chaney version from 1925, though I like the one from 1989 with Robert Englund and the creepy make up effects, too.
About this creation

The opera house is filling slowly. People are laughing and talking and looking foreward to a wonderful evening.


Yet nobody knows what is going on right above their heads.


Its Erik, the phantom! He obviously doesnt like to see Carlotta on stage, so he decided to test the laws of gravity on the crystal chandelier, hr hr ...


Later hes going to play something nice for Christine in the lower depths of the Opera on his huge ... ah ... organ.


This is the complete set with its 8x8 base. I tried to build it completely without any overhang, but then decided that it looks nicer with three rows of seats.


And of course there are some bats in the belfry, I mean, under the ceiling.


Finally, a creepy, smeary and grainy black and white version of the phantom. Sleep well, kids. Muahahaha!

Quoting W Mark Nicely built, and exceptionally well photographed. What did you use for the lighting? It looks amazing.
Thank you. Im using a light tent, 80 x 80 x 80 cm (that is the inexpensive part) and two studio flashlights with soft boxes (the expensive part). Ive heared that a light kit with 2 good photoflood lights should do the trick, too. Sometimes I use daylight or even candles (like in time machine 2). And white or black cardboard in the tent.

Wow! Amazing work! I wasn't expecting the extra level of the organ and bats, and the lighting on that second picture was REALLY effective. Very nice job!

NOw this is just bloody awesome! Love it, the whole design is great. I have not seen the 1989 version, but my wife makes me watch the one with Gerald Butler all the time. I do like that version though, will have to check out the Englund version.

Wow, thank you all for the friendly comments. @ Justin: Photoshop, though Im sure itll work with GIMP, too. Its just converting to black and white, manipulating the levels and adding some grain.
