EDIT 10/4/14: Less than three weeks to go until deadline (April 30th) - and we're still getting more donations to our prize! The latest donation is a set of requests from ObsessionWithDoodlin. Thank you so much, as well as everybody else who's donated. This must be the biggest prize in the group's history - so no time like the present to take part, everybody!



Stage Redesigns

New productions of Les Mis are popping up all over the globe all the time. This year, at least Broadway, Australia, Norway and Denmark are getting brand new versions of the world's favourite musical. So, in honor of the show's everlasting popularity, the task of LesMisClub's new contest is to redesign some aspect of Les Misérables the stage musical.

There have been countless versions of the stage show in a wide variety of styles. You can go for a 1830s look like the original West End version, but you can also use a different era of history as an inspiration – think about the recent West End Sweeney Todd visually set in the 1930s, for example. Or you can play around with different styles, like for instance Malmö Opera's recent production did. The most important thing here is to stay true to the characters and the spirit of the show!

You can redesign a costume or a set of costumes, or a set. For example, you could give Cosette a new wedding dress, or a whole new wardrobe with both 1sth act and 2nd act costumes, or you could give the garden at Rue Plumet a makeover. You can also redesign a group of characters or a series of sets – as long as the character or scene appears in the musical. Remember to label your submission so we can see which character/scene it's supposed to be!

Rules
:bulletblue: The task of the contest is to redesign a costume, a set of costumes, a set, or a series of sets that appear in the musical Les Misérables.
:bulletwhite: The contest is open to visual arts. Remember that your submission must follow the Submission Rules. The usage of photos and screenshots from any of the adaptations is forbidden.
:bulletred: One entry per person. The entry should be made for this contest – no art dated before February 23rd 2014 will be accepted. Please submit your entries to the Stage Designs Contest folder in the group gallery.
:bulletblue: The contest deadline is April 30th.
:bulletwhite: The winner will be chosen via voting.

The prize (so far)
:bulletblue: Winner: a handmade piece of jewelry or a jewel box from NoOneWouldListen, a bear dressed as a Les Mis character of the winner's choice by evilredcaboose, 1000 dA points from LuxCompagno, a one-shot or reader insert featuring a Les Mis character of the winner's choice by starbreese, art commissions from ObsessionWithDoodlin, ThreshTheSky, WillRepent and Starlene, a journal feature from evilredcaboose
:bulletwhite: 1st runner-up: 800 dA points from LuxCompagno, sketches from ObsessionWithDoodlin and Starlene, a journal feature from evilredcaboose
:bulletred: 2nd runner-up: a fiction commission from ObsessionWithDoodlin, a sketch from Starlene, a journal feature from evilredcaboose

:bulletred: Interested in making a fellow Mizzie happy? We're accepting donations to the prize! Art, features, points – last time, someone even gave a brand-new West End souvenir programme... Let me know if you'd like to donate something!
:bulletred: A huge thank you to all who have donated to the prize so far!

If you've any questions or anything else to say, don't hesitate to leave a comment.

Can't wait to see the new designs! Good luck, everybody!

I don't mean to be offensive, but it takes really long until submissions are accepted, often they expire. If you need someone to help out, I have time and an interest in speeding up the submission process in the future :s

You're not offensive, I understand the frustration, I'm feeling it myself. It frustrates me that I'm not more available to the group and am working on that. However, if you're serious about helping, we'd love to have the help! I'll shoot you an invite.
