“We’re honored to create a figure for Vice President Harris and reflect this significant moment in U.S. history for guests inside Madame Tussauds New York," Brittany Williams, the spokesperson for Madame Tussauds, said.
The wax figures of both Biden and Harris will be attired as they were on Inauguration Day, with New York-based fashion designer Christopher John Rogers recreating the bright purple blazer and dress he designed for the vice president.
The figures will be unveiled later this year at Madame Tussauds New York in the “Oval Office Experience."
