Many people over the years have enjoyed the popular story "The Phantom of the Opera", and although it is an old tale, it has had a huge influence on a great number of people. Many people were fascinated by the Phantom's gnarled facial features, and the mask that he wore to cover his terrible disfiguration. Because of this fascination with the Phantom of the Opera and the mask that he wore , when the time comes for people to attend a masked ball or other masquerade themed event, many party-goers choose to wear a Phantom of the Opera mask, and emulate the mysterious white mask that covered half of the famous character's face.
This famous mask that played a large role in this classic tale of love and pain, is loved by many people because of the unique look that a mask that only covers half of the face brings. Many masks only cover half the face, but the difference between other masks and the phantom mask is that others cover the face horizontally, such as only covering the top half of the face, but the phantom of the opera mask covers half of the face vertically, giving it a very unique look. This look makes the person wearing it appear very mysterious and dapper as well.
Also, this mask is popular around Halloween time, because playing the character of the Phantom of the Opera is a fun and different choice for a Halloween costume, and it causes the person wearing the mask to appear very original. This makes these masks well sought after in the fall months. This can be a very inexpensive, yet good-looking costume for you. All that you need is a black cape and a Phantom of the Opera mask, and you are set!
These masks are really just for the men, although women have been known to wear them from time to time.
