Snagged this beauty at the flea market today. Actual costume piece from Phantom, but can’t figure out which Masquerader wore it. Any ideas?
Most likely Mandarin Man in Masquerade! :)
I saw it on the table/held it, and I’m absolutely sure that it isn’t the Mandarin Man’s mask (not the Broadway one, anyway). It’s far too small (and appears to be a woman’s mask), and lacks too much detailing. It’s also a standard ‘masquerade mask’ shape, instead of the distinctive ‘full cheeks/narrow brow’ shape of the Mandarin’s mask.
As a comparison, here’s a recent Broadway Mandarin Man mask:
Oh, you’re right! The US one has a lot more shape to it. Then I’m rather lost. I was about to propose BonBon Ribbon Girl, but the US masks are black it seems. So… Anyone?
