I absolutely love this part of this movie. When Flynn cuts her hair off, he cuts it off - the’s barely even a bob left. And seeing how her self-worth and value had been determined by her hair for eighteen years, I’m sure she felt frightened that she wouldn’t be as valuable to Flynn; to anyone. She was always just her hair. But by cutting it all off, Flynn liberates her from having to feel like a possession, and that is why it is so important she finds that relationship with Flynn, to change the view she had of herself with Mother Gothel.

He’s a thief.
It’s more like it, what you say Swan?
Maybe one day I will be this happy.
Okay, glad this is everyone’s new life goal.
The man’s best friend!
Literally nothing better than the love you receive from a dog.
Back around 2005-2007, when the movie phandom was at its height, there were a lot of people who tried to take advantage and cash in on the Phantom craze, mostly by selling unofficial merchandise at various levels of skillfulness. One of the most common varieties of this product (besides the ever popular generic-mask-charm-and-fake-rose-glued-to-a-random-item) was the customized Phantom Barbie doll. This is quite a logical thing to make if you want to sell Phantom merch, because doesn’t *everyone* want the official (and pricy) FAO Schwarz Barbie & Ken set? The thing is, though, that not *every* doll customizer is at a Noel Cruz level. Not that some of these dolls weren’t really well done—some of them were quite nice. But most of them…weren’t.
I used to keep up with all the new Phantom eBay listings, and I usually saved the oddest/funniest ones I found. It’s these that I’ve decided to share with you today. I’ve actually wanted to make this post ever since I got into the tumblr Phandom, but it’s only now that I decided to take the time to format it and everything. XD I hope you enjoy it.
Note: all text in double quotation marks (” “) are actual quotes from the original eBay listings.

My name is Shannon and I love The Phantom of the Opera and many other musicals including but not limited to, Love Never Dies, Les Miserables, R+H's Cinderella, RENT, Beauty and the Beast, Wicked and Legally Blonde. My favorite film Phantom is a split between Gerard Butler (2004) and Charles Dance (1990). My favorite stage Phantom is John Cudia/Ramin Karimloo and my favorite Christine is Jennifer Hope Wills/Sierra Boggess. My life is complete because I have now successfully met all four of them <3
