Here’s 1D… In Wax

By: Peggy Truong / April 3, 2013

Weeks after One Direction had their faces, arms and legs measured by Madame Tussauds experts, the museum has unveiled behind-the-scenes photos of the boys in their clay best.

With each clay head propped next to a sculptor, the wax versions of Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Niall Horan look pretty convincing (yes, Harry’s locks and Zayn’s peach fuzz are included).

The exhibit will launch at the London location on Apr. 18, followed by a three-month stay in New York City. The wax figures will then travel to Sydney in October for another three month attraction.

“I think it’s going to be quite weird to see yourself as a wax figure,” Tomlinson told the museum last month. “But it’s an amazing honor to be there. If you look at some of the names that are in there. We are very proud.”
