The last batch of costumes I want to show of this musical… (which is running for a year now, and keeps going). After the gloomy “Hij Gelooft in Mij” dresses the last time, it’s all the more happy now.

Costumes of the André Hazes Musical – Part III – The Dark Edition
Third of the four batches of costumes from the musical (which is still running).
These are a bit on the darker side, since they are mostly from the funeral scenes. Hazes memorial ceremony was a huge event in the Netherlands – drawing 48.000 people into Amsterdam’s soccer stadium.
Costumes of the André Hazes Musical – Part II
On to the next bunch of costumes for “Hij Gelooft in Mij”. Here is a little trailer showing some of them in action.
So here are the drawings, the following is the same as the photo above, changed a bit in color.
Costumes of the André Hazes Musical – Part I
“Hij Gelooft in Mij” is a musical about the Dutch hit music singer André Hazes. Was quite an unusual experience to work on this, compared to the opera costumes… also because of learning a part of (very very) Dutch culture that I somehow never even heard of before.
Not sure how I managed, his life story with it’s sad ending is quite huge over here. And the musical hit like a bomb too: 90.000 tickets sold before even the premiere, rave reviews and now it’s basically sold out until May of next year, even though they have crazy six shows a week. Boom! Someone is making a good buck.
The costumes are also positively mentioned in most reviews… which is the spot for my usual disclaimer: the designs are by Yan Tax, my part of it is to paint them.
I picked an unusual style here, since my usual pencil drawings wouldn’t fit: The musical plays much in 2000s and partly in the 80s and 90s. I think it added up to nearly 150 costumes, and I have trouble boiling them down for showing – so there will probably be three more parts to this. Hopefully next with some photos to show, I’ll work on that.
