Madame Tussauds Hong Kong prepares to welcome versatile artist Z.TAO in 2018. Mr. Huang Zitao has been invited to be the first celebrity housed at Fashion Zone and will attend the unveiling ceremony of his wax likeness, a unique experience for the young artist.
With 24 songs released since 2015, the songwriter and performer has gained significant recognition for his achievements, over the last few years, including The Most Popular Singer in Sina Weibo Night and Baidu’s Entertainment Icon.
He also plays acclaimed roles in movies Railroad Tigers, The Game Changer and A Chinese Odyssey: Love You A Million Years. As a fashion icon who has appeared at London Fashion Week, Shanghai Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week, Z. TAO has been actively involved in the creation of his figure and even provided the clothes that will be worn by the figure, to ensure sure his fans get an authentic representation.
During the seven hour sitting, the Madame Tussauds team worked with Z.TAO to get a full understanding of his facial expressions and and he had to hold the exact same pose for the team to take more than 200 reference photos from various angles.
“When I received the invitation from Madame Tussauds Hong Kong to create my wax figure, I started to work out more frequently to reach my best form,” Z.TAO revealed. The team was impressed with his professionalism and when the team displayed dozens of samples to match his hair, eyes and teeth, Z.TAO cannot resist playing and posing with all the samples. His witty moves caused a storm of laughter.
“During my last visit to Fashion Zone, I am always hoping that I can have a wax replica of myself and fantasying how will my fans interact with my wax double. I can’t wait to see my twin next year!” Z.TAO commented.
