These are the original costume designs from season one. Deedee, Rooney and Moe, as you know them, began here.
This was the initial design challenge:
- Design costumes that will make our actors look like cartoon characters
- Each character should represent a different musical instrument - keyboard, guitar and drums.
- Try to capture the glam-rock aesthetic of the 70's... David Bowie, Kiss, Dee-Lite and Bootsy Collins.
This package of costume designs contains original color prints and black & white faxes that were sent to me when I was developing the show.
I'm excited to share these images for the first time. They are a souvineer from the earliest days of our design process. The Doodlebops costumes developed a lot between seasons one and three. But the main elements can be traced back to these drawings here.
The shiny versions of the costumes that the Doodles switch into before the concerts in seasons two and three still crack me up. That idea came later though. This design pack shows where it all began.
