Les Miz Redux, Now with Lego Chima
Q-ster in his full Les Miserables Enjolras outfit!
I scored a black vest at a teenybopper store and covered it with red fabric. The gold braid would have cost a fortune, except that I found some for $2/yard at the garment district remnants store that Costume Conspirator and I used to frequent. The sash was just a few dollars at Target - I think it's meant to be USA-patriotic, but it works pretty well for France too.
It would not be complete without a red flag to wave, of course.
I asked Buster if he wanted me to make anything for him, and he asked for a Laval outfit - a lion character from Lego Chima. He rarely wants costume pieces, so I was happy to oblige.
The lion logo came out pretty well. I think I can make that design into a cake, if he's still into Laval when his birthday rolls around.
