Wax and mane: Donald Trump statue unveiled at Madame Tussauds

January 18, 2017

For five months, the team at Madame Tussauds has been quietly prodding, polishing and painting the face of the 45th President of the United States.

This is President-elect Donald Trump as you have never seen him before: up close and personal and made entirely of wax.

Created by Madame Tussauds, the waxwork is one of four being made in London. Three others have already been shipped to Washington DC, New York and Orlando to coincide with Trump’s inauguration on Friday. …

Styling the waxwork’s head of hair wasn’t the biggest concern, it was the color.

“His hair is a mixture of human hair and yak hair. We use yak hair with people with white hair because human hair is not readily available,” said hairstylist Kelly Cox. …

For the President-elect’s eyebrows, the team used squirrel hair.

This video is about red squirrels in Scotland.

This video is about Tibetan yaks.

I certainly hope not any yaks or squirrels were killed for providing yak or squirrel fur (and not any humans for the human hair). Too many elephants and other animals have already been killed for the Trump dynasty.

Trump waxwork joins world leaders at Paris museum

On the eve of his inauguration as US president, Donald Trump was already standing among world leaders at the Grevin wax museum in Paris on Thursday — though the sculptor admits the hair posed a challenge.

Sculpted in record time — just over two months — after the museum was wrong-footed by Trump’s shock victory over Hillary Clinton, the wax likeness stands next to one of German leader Angela Merkel and at arm’s length from Vladimir Putin of Russia.

The museum was so certain that Clinton would win the November election that it decided to forgo the trouble of sculpting statues for both candidates. …

A similar Trump waxwork was unveiled on Wednesday at Madame Tussauds museum in London, complete with his signature suntan — and yak hair.
