MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS TO LAUNCH DONNY & MARIE WAX FIGURES IN 2016
LAS VEGAS (October 2015) – Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will immortalize world-renowned musical performers Donny & Marie in 2016. The attraction is announcing today they will be the first new figures in the new year.
The brother and sister duo have been involved since the inception of the figures. Their sitting took more than three hours per person with the studio team taking approximately 300 measurements. Now this step is complete, their measurements have been used to be sculpt their figures in clay by hand, then covered in a plaster cast. The clay was removed from the casts and poured in and allowed to cool. The next few weeks will be spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand, which is customary for Madame Tussauds’ studio team. Finally, the figures will be fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth, while countless layers of tinted paint will be applied to build up skin tones and replicate their faces.
Photos from the sittings will be released in early November.
