Phenomenal Phantom Costumes!

Recommended Posts

We are so fortunate to have a wonderfully generous and lovely Phantom fan in Vegas who has once again offered to display the 50 costumes from the PotO movie at her house during the 2008 Con!! Susan opened up her beautiful home to many of us in 2006, and we were amazed and thrilled to be given the opportunity to view these exquisite costumes up close. (You can see many gorgeous pics in the gallery.)

Issy

:wave: UPDATE: The cost is $30 per person. Please mail check or money order, made out to Metrospace Design Group, to:

METROSPACE DESIGN GROUP

P.O. BOX 34057

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA 89133-4057

Please try and have your payment to Susan by May 31, 2008, but don't worry, if you can't pay until later, just let me know. As I have said, we don't want anyone to miss out! :)

RIDING ASSIGNMENTS ARE COMPLETE!

It looks like we have two extra seats in Alice's car, which we WILL still need - so don't go picking up any hitchhiker's Alice! And a quick prayer goes out for Phanphorlife, who I just found out, will not be able to make the convention. See the prayer thread for more info.

TOUR GROUP ASSIGNMENTS!!!

Tour group assignments were based on who had to be back early on Saturday afternoon as well as who you are riding with. Those who are riding in the limo, we haven't really worked out the way back, but I assume that I will have that taken care of by Wed night when I can talk with the Hilton's shuttle service. We'll go back in shifts.

I will print this out to bring with me to Vegas so you don't have to remember who you are assigned to. The second tour group will get to lounge by the pool at Susan's house, so maybe bring sunscreen? :lol:

As a reminder, those of you who have not paid, you will need your $30 to give to Susan (Metrospace) when you arrive at her house. Also, please be sure to bring money to chip in for the limo/taxi/shuttle as well as pitching in for gas for those who are kind enough to offer a ride. I believe the trip to Susan's is like a half hour and with gas the way it is - I'm sure even a dollar or two would be helpful!

Thank you all so much and we look forward to seeing each and everyone of you!

I missed out on seeing this the first year, so I am definitely interested in seeing it in '08. I will be arriving in Vegas on Thursday, and leaving probably on Monday. Transportation is what prevented Libby and I from seeing the display in '06, so hopefully that issue can be addressed.

Thanks for heading this up, Issy!

Be still my heart, Issy! I'm thrilled that we are going to be able to see these again. :claphands::claphands::claphands::hugs: to you for heading this up.

These costumes are absolutely breathtaking up close. The amazing detail in each and every one is truly astounding. How awesome that Susan is willing to do this again. What a charming and wonderful lady she is.

I'm planning on arriving in Vegas on Wednesday and stay through early Monday morning, if that helps with the planning.

It is worth every penny to see these up close.

Even though I went in 2006 I would be game to see them again, especially the costumes that were added after we saw them. Here is a link to the photo albums in the GALS Gallery from some of us that went before. Phantom Costumes in Las Vegas These costumes really have to be seen to be believed, and you'll once again wonder how the costume designer did not even get a nomination for an Academy Award because the detail and expense that went into creating these are astonishing. And Susan Heath was so gracious and such an amazing hostess, in allowing us into her home ~ and we even got to enrobe ourselves in one of the Phantom capes, now THAT alone made it worth every cent and every moment.

I am in Vegas from Tuesday until Monday next year, and I will have a car so would be willing to help with transport of up to 4 other people.

I'm interested again...I have a better camera this time, plus video...

I'm driving, in a van. I can take at least 3 other people, possibly 6 if I make sure the back seat is empty.

The tour was simply breathtaking! And our hostesses were so accommodating.

Here are my pictures from Saturday and Sunday. The lower half of the pictures are from the POTO excursion.

I would love to see these costumes up close since Gerry's "Phantom" is my all time favorite movie. Please count me in. Unfortunately I can't help out with transportation and will need a ride. Hope someone can help me out. I'll be in Vegas from Tuesday until the following Tuesday. Susan~Sporran if you need help in anything let me know. My time is yours. Must agree with Jilly what a wonderful lady you are. You rock!

Hugs, Barbara

Oh. The cape. :thud:

Putting that on was amazing. I couldn't believe how heavy it was and how gorgeous up close. I agree, Susan. That movie should have gotten the nod for its costuming. Absolutely breathtaking.

I'd forgotten that Susan Heath had added to her collection since we saw it. She was absolutely the most gracious hostess for allowing us into her home. I'm gettting so excited all over again.

Blessings on your beautiful head, Issy, for getting this idea rolling. :kiss:

Sorry Izzy that I didn't thank you for getting this rolling. I don't do much posting since I don't think I'm good at it but I'll work on it. These costumes sound so awesome to see and I can't wait. Thank you again for all your hard work. Hope to meet you in Vegas.

Hugs, Barbara :wave:

You are so welcome, Barbara! You just won't believe how amazing they are, and so much detail that you can't even see on the screen! Layers upon layers of hand-painted or hand-stitched or hand-embroidered fabric, colors that just couldn't come across on film, and many of them are so tiny!! And the Red Death outfit..... :reddeathsword: :omg2::thud:

Count me in! I've seen some of LadyJ's and EmmyB's costume collections, and I am ecstatic to think of seeing this one as well! I'll be arriving on Vegas on Wednesday or Thursday, and will be staying through Monday. I'll need a ride, but would be willing to share a cab. No problema!

You have NO IDEA how bad I want to come to Vegas, but at this time I haven't figured

out how to finance a second Vegas venture. I had so hoped that we might have had

the opportunity to see the costumes this year. I can't give you an answer now, or

probably any time in the near future. I hope there might be a way to add to your

count if a miracle happens and we can make it back. If we do, there would be three

more who would love to see the costumes. We would have to have transportation as

well. I think we would be there from Wednesday until Monday morning.

Bless you, Issy, for setting this up..I wouldn't miss this for anything, even though I saw it in '06, but now with the added costumes it will be even more awesome! Count me in...I'll be arriving Wednesday or Thursday, leaving Monday..don't know yet if I'm driving or flying, but if I drive I'd be happy to take 4 people with me...

:erikrose: :reddeathsword: I checked with Susan today, and she says that there are about 20 more costumes now than we saw in '06! :wow2:

I wanted also to say :thankyou: in advance to everyone who has offered to give rides to those who are 'wheel-less' in Vegas! I promise, we will get everyone there who wants to see it, even if I have to rent a van and drive people myself! The trip from the Hilton to Susan's house is about 20 min., depending on traffic, and it will take about an hour to see everything and enjoy the refreshments that our wonderful hostess provides, so we should be able to make sure that everyone can fit it into their schedule, if they wish.
