Phantom Cape Question/Desperation

Hello all. I've lurked around this community for awhile and it's a wonderful resource for Christine's many costumes. However, there's a terrible dearth of good, clear Phantom reference pictures, especially for his evening suit/cape set.

I'm, thankfully, not working on a full costume (and am instead victimising a teddy bear), but I'm really picky about knowing the details and deciding what to use or not. I only need photos of his cape, specifically the collar which I *know* has quite a bit of beading but have no idea what it really looks like. Trawling through the Net has led to small, unclear photos or dead links. (Blasted books never seem to give good photos for it either.)

Terribly close to doing whatever I feel like and throwing in the mouse. So I'm appealing to the good folk here on all and any information on it. What shape is the general cape? Is it a full circle? Is it lined? With what? How is it closed/kept on? What does the beading look like? (What I wouldn't give for a good ref pic)

(I've had a couple of links to a phantomphans image gallery or a ALW costume pic site but alas, both are deader than dead. I've also been through all possible Phan sites on costumes than anyone should in two days. 'M going cross-eyed. X( )

I really would get down and worship any help given.

Oh, man, this seems like it would be so easy! And yet going through all of the pictures I have from the movie, I can't seem to find a single on that has a clear view of his cape. How awful. I don't know if you've tried looking through screencaps yet? There are some pretty high quality ones here. You might also be able to find something at
Thanks for the image links. I'm afraid I forgot to say that I was working on the stage version rather than the movie's cape and I have a feeling the movie one hasn't got the same details.

However, the links are still awesome for future references. Thankee! 8D
Oh man, now I feel really stupid... Oops... Well, to make up for my mistake, I poked around a little bit more. I can't say my results were all that promising, but they might be able to help out some.

Phantom Costume Resources is mostly recreations, but the first link under Erik's page says that it's a costume from the actual show.

If you look under the "Phantom" category on the left at Phantom's Theatre, there are a bunch of pictures of different Phantoms. Unfortunately, none of them are very high resolution, and they're probably all ones you've seen before.

Here's another list of different Phantoms. There's a lot of crossover with the last link, but this picture looks pretty good.

And finally... Phantom Barbies. Whaaat??! Oh, Google, how you amuse me.
Oh my goodness. ROFL. Those Phantom Barbies are just....weird. Yeah, I've been to the PCR. Didn't get anything very useful there sadly.

Ahaha! Thank you very much. There're plenty pictures of the collar 8D I'm a happy turkey. I've got a much better idea of what it looks like now and from virtually any angle. (I think the only way to really *see* any better at this point is to hijack one of the productions going on. Hehe. Not a bad idea....)

Sounds like you've got a handle on the situation, but in case you needed some more photos:

And of course, I can't leave Gary Mauer out!
Haha, yes, I've more or less settled that already but thanks ever so much for the pics! I haven't seen most of them before and they'll be wonderful resources for future reffing. =D
