EDIT 1/12/2013: Everyone who has promised to take part has now received a note with the name of their person and their favourite characters (if something has gone wrong and you haven't gotten a note, please contact me) and the Secret Santa 2013 folder has been opened for submissions. Your task is to create a gift that features one or both of your person's favourite characters before December 31st! When you're done, submit your art to the Secret Santa 2013 gallery folder and let your person know about the gift.
There has been some confusion regarding this lately, so I'd like to remind everybody: art that includes copyrighted material such as movie screencaps or stage production photos is not allowed in the group gallery. Photomanipulations can be submitted to Secret Santa, and the gallery in general, as long as they only include material you are allowed to use (such as images uploaded to the deviantART Resources
Have fun creating your gifts, and have a lovely December, everybody!*Starlene
long time no talk! What's up with all of you? Has anyone seen the new Toronto production of Les Mis – or any other version? I'm sure many of you are already counting days to the upcoming Broadway premiere...
Seeing it's almost December all of a sudden, I figure we could do a little Secret Santa exchange. I admit the idea came to me a bit late, it'd been nice to get this started a bit earlier – but if we start now, there's still plenty of time. All members of LesMisClub are invited to take part. Every participant will receive a piece of Les Mis fanart or fanfiction from a fellow fan!Taking part
Leave a comment in this journal entry with two of your favourite Les Mis characters. By leaving a comment, you promise
to create one gift for the exchange.
On December 1st, you will receive a note with the name of your Secret Santa gift recipient and their two favourite characters. Your task is to create a piece of art for them that features one or both of those characters.
Post the art to the group's Secret Santa folder by December 31st. When the gift is posted, remember to send a link to your recipient!
Any kind of art is okay as long as it doesn't break the group rules
Aspire to create something that you think would make you happy if you were to receive a similar gift, but remember that the gifts do not have to be overly complicated. A nice sketch or a ficlet is perfectly fine – though it is not forbidden to create something really detailed, either! Keep in mind that this is not a contest but a gift exchange meant to spread some holiday cheer.
If you decide to take part, you have to follow through and give your person a gift. Absolutely no copping out allowed. Santa is watching you!!
Now, get commenting! Also, if you've anything to ask, feel free to contact me. Remember: only the comments where people list two of their favourite Les Mis characters count as promises to participate in the Secret Santa.
