Looks better than the last attempt, IMO. Wouldn't it be fun to pose next to him. Probably the closest I'd ever get.....

It looks like George's wax figure is inviting someone to sit next to it. I wouldn't chance it though because I'd be afraid the arm would fall off. lol

Wax museums freak me out too - the figures look too much like corpses.

I went to a wax museum years ago (on Halloween). The room was dimly lit and set up with all manner of spooky creations, cue the creepy music too. I was really enjoying myself until I leaned into a coffin containing a wax work of Christopher Lee as Dracula. Except it wasn't a wax work, but a real person who jumped up and out of the coffin he was in, just as I leaned in to touch his face Shocked I screamed, boy did I scream, ran into a wall, got tangled in the curtains, nearly wet myself.

My sister and her husband who took me there and were in on the joke, came out in hysterics and laughed the whole way home, I saw the funny side eventually!!!!

Now the wax work of George is more pleasing to the eye, so might be brave enough to sit next to it, if he ever comes my way!!

OMG Silly Girl - I will never forget it - it was like my feet were made of concrete and I couldn't move at first, then I just started running into everything and everyone, must have looked hilarious and my sisters ONLY regret is that she didn't film it!!!

The museum was set up a bit like a maze, you needed to walk through these very dark corridors filled with spooky stuff, room after room till you found the exit. I have since been to Madame Tussaud's but made my husband promise to not scare me.

Post by silly girl on Sun Feb 17 2013, 14:40

Well I guess you can small comfort that they didn't film it! Laughing

My niece took a photo of me on NY's Eve one year....not very pretty. Luckily it was a digital camera and I deleted it before she uploaded it. Wink

Here is an article dissecting why "GC" was sitting on a couch in the middle of London:

Which celeb would you rather date – charming George or a real prince?

Female visitors to Madame Tussauds were recently asked to vote on which of the depicted celebrities they would most like to date. It was a Valentine's Day thing. The answer was, of course, Henry VIII.

It wasn't, it was George Clooney.

This is not a result much to be relied upon by science. The sample group is, it is to be hoped, unrepresentative of womankind. These are people who have chosen to spend their money and time at Madame Tussauds – and if you look at the ticketing page of its website and then drive past the building to view its inexplicably ever-present queue, you'll see that it aspires to extort copious quantities of both. Not only that; these women have then further defiled the sanctity of the gift of life by agreeing to take part in a publicity-garnering PR department dating poll.

But weird and skewed, like waxworks after a fire, though this electorate may be, Clooney isn't a surprising winner. He's a handsome film star and most women fancy handsome film stars. And the downsides to dating a handsome film star, which in the case of some of them must be manifold, aren't obvious from a waxwork. When they're motionless and smiling in a jacket, the narcissism, the rages, the self-loathing, the covert vomiting, the suppressed homosexuality, the obsessive observance of a recently made-up religion, the bad breath, the weird and random fear of certain noises, the vestigial tail or whatever it is that fate has cursed them with so that megastardom has become, not just survivable, but actually comforting, is not yet apparent.

However, I was surprised to see who came second in the poll. It was Prince Harry. He strikes me as very different from George Clooney – both in waxwork form and in likely subsequent behaviour should their statues magically come to life. I think it's probable that the women who voted for Clooney and the women who voted for Harry were doing so for different reasons. Clooney is a romantic dream: the perfect-looking unattainable gentleman, the fairytale date whose every smile would make you swoon. Harry meanwhile would probably get you drunk and shag you, which can also be nice. The first group are casting themselves in a celestial narrative, the second have spotted someone they like the look of across a crowded bar.

I expounded this theory to my wife, because I sense how much she admires my insights into the female psyche. But she disagreed with my analysis. Her view was that the women who voted for Harry did so quite simply because he's a prince. I'd sort of forgotten that Prince Harry was a prince. He doesn't seem very prince-like. But of course, if he weren't a prince, I wouldn't have heard of him. She reckoned the Harry-voters will have reasoned thus: if you go on a date with him, he might marry you and then you'd be a princess and live in a palace. It's not very likely but, you'd surely think, likelier if he'd gone on a date with you than if he hadn't. You have to be pretty low on self-esteem to think that the chances of someone marrying you are reduced if they meet you.

So it wasn't about the date itself: a choice between Clooney's assured suavity – his solicitude for his companion's comfort, the excellent restaurant, the wine he orders with unobtrusive savoir-faire and then the romantic hours whiled away gazing at the perfect symmetry of his face – and Prince Harry filling a fountain with Cristal, diving in and blowing fart bubbles while singing rude words to the German national anthem. No, these voters were hoping for their date with a waxwork to lead somewhere.

That must be why Brad Pitt only came fourth. Surely most women would rather spend the evening with him than Harry, but Pitt's already spoken for – extremely convincingly spoken for – while Clooney and Harry still seem to be exploring their options.

The voters were looking for their Prince Charming but, in Clooney and Harry, were faced with a choice between plain Mr Charming and Prince Not-Tremendously-Charming. They were all having to make do. So I now accept that, if it were a casual shag they were after, they probably wouldn't have chosen either of them. They'd have gone for someone like Tiger Woods whose reputation for having lots of sex is unencumbered by games of naked pool and the awkward presence of tipsy Special Branch officers.

I don't know whether Tiger Woods was an available option though – there may not be a waxwork of him on display at the moment. But there's definitely a Boris Johnson for those keen on a roll in the hay (as he calls his flaxen pubes). He may not be a prince but he's related to royalty and he's very charming. On a date, a woman could dream, he might combine the charm of a sexually voracious seducer who must have your body at all costs, and a delightful run-down cottage with creatures living in the thatch.

Or, for those keen on a more classic lothario, there's a JFK.

But JFK is dead, as distant as the basically married Brad Pitt. The women in the poll may dream of dating a glamorous figure they've never met, and almost certainly never will meet, and enjoy the imagined journey it takes them on. But, if the imagined journey requires the instigation of divorce or the invention of a time machine, the dream is somehow spoiled.

And yet, although your chances of romance with an assassinated president may be infinitely less than they are with George Clooney, that doesn't mean it's a statistically significant difference. Only one is impossible, but neither is going to happen. So you might as well dream about having a time machine. Like men do. And that the time machine allows you to kidnap Isambard Kingdom Brunel, take him to the 21st century and blow his mind by showing him a Kindle. Like I do.

The photos accompanying this Tussauds publicity stunt were of their Clooney waxwork, a single red rose in its hand, sitting serenely on a sofa that they'd positioned on Carnaby Street. Young women in coats were photographed kissing him, cuddling up to him, practically sitting on his knee, while he stared forward oblivious and benign, not seeing them, not feeling the cold, waiting for his waxen date.
