Each strand of hair is inserted individually, taking approximately five weeks to complete each head.
Two maintenance teams inspect and primp each figure daily before the attraction opens.
To add authenticity to the figures at Madame Tussauds New York, many artifacts have been donated
from the celebrity or purchased from auctions. Joan Rivers Ivana Trump even donated their personal nail polish.
All figures have their hair washed and make-up retouched regularly.
From the first private sitting with a celebrity to completion, it takes approximately four months to create a figure.
More than 250 precise measurements and photographs of a subject are taken to accurately create
a wax figure. If the subject is unavailable for these measurements and photographs, Madame
Tussauds studio artists study hundreds of photos and watch hours of video to create the figure.
All celebrities' vital statistics are kept confidential – despite repeated requests from the public and media.
Because wax shrinks, wax figures are made two percent larger than the real life subjects they portray.
Red silk thread is used to create the veins on each eyeball.
Knotted rope is used to create the look of veins on the bodies.
Each figure can cost up to $300,000 to make.
More than 500 million people worldwide have visited a Madame Tussauds –
that's more than the population of North America and Australia combined."
