“Bahorel was a creature of good humor and bad company, brave, a spendthrift, prodigal almost to the point of generosity, talkative almost to eloquence, bold almost to insolence;the best possible stock for the devil, with rash waiscoats and scarlet opinions; enjoying nothing so much as quarrel unless it were a riot and nothing so well as a riot unless it were a revolution “
This is a figure I began planning about a year ago and actually started
it around November last year. It was one of those customs you’re just
not sure about. So I bit the bullet and take a crack at him!
So here is the final product of my Les Miserables Jean Valjean figure! After narrowing my options of actors down, I decided to base the likeness off our own current Australian performer, Simon Gleeson.
I love all the costumes in Les Mis, but one of my favorites is Valjean’s
iconic Act 2 “barricade” outfit which he famously wears during his
“Bring Him Home” number
Once again, the fantastic head sculpt was by Peter the Painter and I
couldn’t have asked for a better little masterpiece! And the wonderful
little flintlock rifle was made for me by Stevos Toys!
Dear @carriehopefletcher as its your last day at Les mis, I just want to say a massive thank you. It truly has been an honour watching you live your your dream for what is nearly three years now. I really do wish I could be there today to watch you one last time but, not living in London and having other commitments is unfortunately stopping me, even though I do think I would be an emotional wreck if I was there! You have been such a wonderful Eponine and I am so proud of you. You achieved your dream and you did it perfectly, you really are Eponine in my eyes. I just want to say thank you for all your time over the past three years, it doesn’t go unappreciated, in fact I admire the time you spend with your fans and just the fact that you always no matter what make us feel so welcome that whenever I’ve spoke to you it has really felt like talking to an old friend. I really look up to you for that. I wish you all the luck for the future, I hope one day to maybe see you as Elphaba because that would be just phenominal! I cannot wait to read your book when it’s released & hopefully if you do another book tour I’ll be able to come to that one too. I know your future is bright. Don’t let anyone or anything stand in the way of your dreams, I know you can achieve anything you put your mind to. Thank you for everything, I hope to see you on a west end stage again soon. Love always, your hopeful/honouray big sister Sarah xxx
