If you've never been to a Madame Tussauds location, you have no idea what you've been missing. I remember my first time visiting the Times Square location, back in 2001.
I have great photos with Mr "James Brown". The embarrassing thing is my outfit was similar to his. Seeing people, well their incredibly lifelike likeness is pretty cool. They look so much taller on television, but when you see the wax figures that are made to be the same size as the A-Listers, it's amazing when you compare yourself to them. And, to imagine the talent it took to make these figures, the detail in the makeup, facial hair, my gosh...even the eyebrows look real!
"Get your selfie sticks ready! Madame Tussauds in Times Square is the only place with no ropes or barriers holding you back from getting photos with your favorite stars!
