Harris to become first vice president with wax statue at Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds New York

Madame Tussauds New York announced on Wednesday that Vice President Harris would become the first U.S. vice president to have a wax figure made in her likeness in honor of her first 100 days in office.

“Kamala Harris made history when she was sworn in on January 20th becoming the first woman, first Black person and first Asian American vice president. Madame Tussauds New York is adding another first to Harris’ list of achievements by creating a wax figure in her likeness; an honor that has never-before been extended to a vice president,” the wax museum said in a statement.

The wax museum has traditionally made a wax figure of every U.S. president.

According to a press release, the heads of Harris and President Biden were created by a team based in London based on various images of the two. The heads took six weeks to complete, and the bodies will take another four to six months.

“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.”
