Every barricade day I always wear red and black. Will need to start looking out my red and black stripey knee highs soon.... :D

somehow I get away with wearing those to work on a regular basis. lol. I work in an exclusive secondary school, but luckily being an arty "drama teacher" my eccentricity of dress is taken as "oh its Miss J*** again"...

Barricade day is a lecture day in med school. Have to remain less than outrageous that day.

What about your tricolor rosette thing? :)

I do have a Les Mis pin badge that lives permanently on my old grey winter coat that has got me through the last few years. I should maybe transfer it over to one of the Javert coats I got in the last year and now wear all the time.

We should totally do something as a forum to mark it....movie livestream perhaps? (movie livestream with skype chat! :lol: ) I think the DVD would be out everywhere by then? Some sort of one day fanfic challenge?

Game for the fanfic challenge.

As for the rosette....will have to decide based on the classes I have that day.

I will be at theatre rehearsals for Les Mis in the evening, but to be honest there will probably be pre-rehearsal antics. (especially with costumes and props to hand...)

I have made a tricolor rosette :D Also I have Enjolras, Éponine and Cosette costumes ready.
Acaila the javert idea sounds great but the sad thing is that in Greece it's going to be around 40 degrees and I don't think I can afford to wear anything but my Éponine costume, as it is going to be sleeveless :? I will try to do something summery with the Enjolras vest.
Fanfic challenge sounds amazing, and maybe we can all make barricades of some kind and take pictures and make a thread with them, livestream is a massive YES, and I think Skype is obligatory, so that we can all be dressed up and sing :lol:
I'm so excited for that day because exams will be over AND it's going to be the day my Irish friend is coming in Greece to stay with me, and she's into les Mis as well though I'm sure it's going to be epic! That might mean that I won't have much time to spend on the forum celebrations, but I really wish I will manage both!
Then I saw their trembling features warp and, gradually,
Their foreheads turn pale and dissolve in front of me,
And everyone, like a stream that flows into a sea,
Became completely lost in a dark immensity.

That would be fun! Though my Universitys entrance exam is of course 6th day, so I might be a 'little' stressed out then :mrgreen: I need to wear something red during the exam.....
