    Following the success of The Hunchback of Notre Dame in 1923, Lon Chaney was once again given the freedom to create his own make-up as the Phantom, a habit which became almost as famous as the films he starred in. Chaney pulled his eyeballs out from their sockets with thin wires, so that his eyes appeared to bulge out and their sockets became very deep. He then kept his eyes in their bulged-out position with wires and painted his eye sockets black, giving a skull-like impression to them. He also pulled the tip of his nose up and pinned that in place with wire, enlarging his nostrils with black paint, and putting a set of jagged false teeth into his mouth to complete the ghastly deformed look of the Phantom. Although nowhere near as elaborate as his make-up for Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it was no less painful, and no less effective either. When audiences first saw The Phantom of the Opera, they were said to have screamed or fainted at the scene where Christine pulls the concealing mask away, revealing his skull-like features to the audience (but not, for a few seconds, to Christine).

    Chaney's appearance as the Phantom in the film has been the most accurate depiction of the title character, based on the description given in the novel, where Erik the Phantom is described as having a skull-like face with a few wisps of black hair on top of his head. As in the novel, Chaney's Phantom has a full facial deformity present since birth, as opposed to the partial facial disfigurement caused by acid or fire (depending on the adaptation) seen in later adaptations of The Phantom of the Opera.

    It is in the appearance of the Phantom that Lon Chaney is most associated with in the mind of the public.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    My uncle married my aunt. Even though no one in the family approved. Who gives I guess. My female cousins turned out just fine, actually above average even. :o

    That is so gross.

    I'd say yes I'm attracted to folks who are similar (sub)racially to me but no, not similar face to mine like a male version of myself. That would be gross, it would remind me of incest which is one of the most disgusting things ever.

    edit: More on topic, I would say people that look somewhat similar are attractive, but I've also found people that don't really look anything like me attractive also.

    The guys I'm attracted to, generally, would classify the same way as me, have similar coloration for the most part, so on. However, their features are significantly different than mine. I have a very "girly" looking face and shape. Even when I had... err... stupid haircuts, it was very obvious that I was female. Looking at a guy with a face like mine would be a lot like looking at a girl with a male body. o.O Not diggin' it.

    I tend to prefer guys around my brother's height, but I don't really like his facial features. He got the more "northern" of the draw. His coloration is similar to mine, but lacking the elements I truly enjoy (red tinge to hair and greyness in eyes). Then again, if I were a boy I still wouldn't look like my brother.

    Most of the couples I see around, though, look like brother and sister. Similarly, I often have to be careful when I meet a female a friend of mine is close to... it's kind of embarassing saying, "I thought you were his sister OR his girlfriend..." but people understand.

    People used to think my brother and I were twins, but now they don't even believe that we are related because we look and act so differently. The only time people begin to "see" our kinship is when we're accidentally accused of being a couple and we clarify. People often find it easier to believe that my best friend is my brother, even though he looks even less like me than my real brother does. People always think that my foster sister is my blood sister, though, even if no relation is suggested. eyes: She is certainly NOT attracted to people who look just like her. Can't really blame her. She's a pretty girl, but her blood brothers look exactly the same and probably how she would look if she was male, and they aren't that lovely...



    Addendum: I think that generally I am most sexually attracted to people who look similar to me, although I find severely different people aesthetically pleasing.
    Polygamy: it might not be for you, but what right do you have to keep it from me?

    that is an interesting point which actually explains some things...i don't really look like anyone in my family, so all the people i've met who looked like me have been complete strangers, but i often find people who are handsome are blonde and blue eyed or dark haired and dark eyed (the colourings in my family) unattractive.
