Another promo pic with a better view of Courf’s barricade look.

Another promo pic, Enjolras and Marius pre-barricade (note the different clothes)… I didn’t bother to label them sorry :p Enjolras is the one with the leather jacket.

One more promo pic

Under the cut I have lots of screencaps which aren’t as pretty as the promo pics but should be helpful:
