This is another Michelle Obama Drama moment. A wax figure in the likeness of first lady Michelle Obama was unveiled at Madame Tussauds in Washington D.C., the world-famous wax museum. Crowds lined up around the block to see the wax figure. The museum’s artists began working on the wax figure in late December. While Obama did not pose for the artists, they were able to achieve a lifelike representation of the first lady by poring over photographs and video footage of her.
A quick crowd survey seemed to suggest the artists were successful, as most museum goers thought the likeness was dead-on. Dressed in a custom designed red sleeveless dress and black cardigan, the life-size wax figure stands in the museum’s replica Oval Office. Michelle Obama is one of only three first ladies to be immortalized by the wax museum. Figures of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Hillary Clinton are also on display. The museum decided to make the figure because of the high public interest in Michelle Obama. What do you think about this wax figure?
