Madame Tussauds Las Vegas just unveiled a brand new Ru!
You know you’ve made it when there are not one but TWO wax versions of yourself at the legendary wax museum. Yes, this is the second time Ru has been honored, the first was RuVealed at Madame Tussaud’s New York in 2000 –their first-ever drag figure!
RuPaul says his new figure is important for a different reason.
“It’s special because I’m doing this one out of drag. This is my male persona, which in recent years has become just a famous as my drag persona.”
RuPaul sat for the model makers, who took over 200 different measurements to make the figure as realistic as possible. Good job!
Brittany Williams, a spokesperson for Madame Tussauds in Vegas said,
“RuPaul is an icon.
We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create an exclusive experience that allows guests to playfully interact with one of the most influential people in the world in a way that’s only possible at the world’s greatest wax museum.”
And RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! is now at the Flamingo in Vegas too, starring Asia O’Hara, Derrick Barry, Kameron Michaels, Naomi Smalls, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo, and Yvie Oddly. Get your tickets here.
