Wax Figures are weird by Loretto on 14 September 2011 2:57pm
 
I visited Madame Tussauds in London when I was 18, and it was a bit weird. This article reminded me why it all seemed weird;

That made Don and I laugh a lot. The naomi Campbell one reminded Don of Rachel - Rimmer's inflatable friend in the TV show Red Dwarf - because of the shape of her mouth!

Julia Roberts and Hugh Jackman are easily the least like the real people and the Beatles look like they have teddy bear "button" eyes! Ahhhh they're adorable! LOL

Jennifer Lopez looks scary! I haven't been to Madame Tussauds for years.

I visited in 1989 in London. I was disappointed in some of the figures. They weren't nearly as fabulous as I thought they'd be.

I read the other day that some of the Tussauds exhibits are coming to Canberra.
I visited Madame Tussauds many years ago in London, loved it!

Wouldn't you just love to see that lot on an airplaine???

"Peatnuts Mr. Lennon?"

"Coffee or Tea Mr. DiCaprio?"

"Seat back into the upright position Prince Charles!"


'Twould make for a peaceful flight though!

I have to say the Freddie Mercury at Tussauds is fantastic.
I can remember my brother and I there as kids, we walked upto a figure, had a good look and he moved and scared us to bits. It was a security guard....he probably got bored and did this to people all the time.
