Waxed One Direction figures to visit Sydney
What makes them identical makes them beautiful... or something like that. Good-looking or not, we are yet to see if the wax figures to be created of all five members of pop sensation One Direction resemble the young singers.
That is why the band members are being measured up from nose to toe, so fans can have pictures with their idols' exact replica. Louis, Liam, Harry, Zayn and Niail have been involved throughout the sculpting process and taken part in suggesting the style their figures will be portrayed in.
The wax figures will embark on a world tour that will visit three Madame Tussauds venues. First, the figures will land in London, then New York City and it will end in Sydney from 24 October 2013 to 28 January 2014.
“We have been overwhelmed by requests for us to feature One Direction,” states Madame Tussauds' official website. “The boys have been top of the most wanted personalities list in London, New York and Sydney for the last 12 months, so we are delighted we can now bring their figures to each of these cities in a special ‘world tour'”.
The members of the thriving band have also expressed their excitement with this project. Harry commented he is delighted to be getting waxed. “We're just kind of a bit overwhelmed. We've been to Madame Tussauds and seen the kind of people who are in there. It's crazy to think that we will be up there with them”. Nial added, “We were super excited to find out that they were making us and that people felt we were worthy of figures.”
Louis commented on how honoured he felt. “I think it's going to be quite weird to see yourself as a wax figure. But it's an amazing honour to be there. If you look at some of the names that are in there. We are very proud.”
“We actually first heard when we were over at Madame Tussauds looking at the figures so we were even more like WOW we're going to get one of these made. And they are so amazing as well!” added Liam.
