You knew that it was coming, right? The Les Mis Rainbow Wish List! I’ll wait while you pop in your Les Mis soundtrack (or at least YouTube I Dreamed a Dream) so that you can more properly get into the mood. Wink, wink.
Let’s break this down, I thought that I was so clever with this collection! Let’s see if you agree.
Red: modern-day Eponine’s hat, right? I can see her donning this bright beauty while walking the lonely streets of Paris and singing On My Own. Aww, poor Eponine.
Orange: I’m gonna say that this vest could be worn by either Marius or Enjorlas. These guys should still look swanky while defending the barricades, right?
Yellow: Marius’ ring of course! You know, the one that Thénardier steals from him. See, now you remember.
Green: Jean Valjean’s (or should I say the Bishop’s) candlesticks. Yes, I am well aware that the candlesticks are actually silver, but that wouldn’t work well for the RWL so they are green for today. I’m kinda diggin’ these bad boys; I would not mind having these for one of the many nooks in my house.
Blue: I know that you know this one… Javert’s coat. I LOVE this coat and would not mind one bit if Husband were to get it for me for my birthday (cough, cough).
Indigo: The whores’ working garb. Yes, I said ‘whore’. If you look at the film credits, playbill, soundtrack, etc. the ‘Lovely Ladies’ of the story are never referred to as working girls or prostitutes, they are called whores, straight up.
Violet: This would be Cosette’s stationary that she uses to send romantic notes to Marius while he’s playing Revolutionary. I really wish that I had kept up with calligraphy, took lessons in fifth grade and I terribly sad that I don’t remember anything.
Well, there it is: my colorful Les Mis love. Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!
