About Madame Tussauds
Madame Tussauds is the ultimate celebrity
experience and the world's best known and most popular wax attraction. There
are currently 24 Madame Tussauds attractions around the world. Each of the attractions is unique and
tailored to the host city and visitor demographic to feature both local as well
as international figures. These attractions are continually endorsed by
celebrities, sports stars, royalty and global politicians.
Founded in London in 1835, Madame Tussauds'
amazing wax figures are so high quality and so lifelike that even the
celebrities themselves do a double take when they see them -- and all in
stunning interactive themed sets designed to excite, amaze, and surprise,
including some with unique animated features! And, with no bars, ropes or barriers
around the figures, visitors will have no problem believing that they really
are standing beside their heroes and the photographs taken with favourite stars
will be a special memory for ever.
The result of 200 years of expertise and
painstaking research every figure takes Madame Tussauds' gifted sculptors a
minimum of three months to make, and costs more than $300K (Singapore dollars).
Most contemporary figures are also produced following sittings with the
celebrities themselves and are the result of hundreds of separate measurements,
hours matching skin tone, eye and hair colour -- with every individual hair
inserted separately. Celebrities and film studio wardrobe departments often
supply clothing for their figures, or designers will reproduce significant or
iconic outfits as exact replicas, only for Madame Tussauds. Inclusion in one of
Madame Tussauds attractions around the world is seen as a huge honour and
recognition of an individual's contribution, status and achievement.
