Miley Cyrus’ figure was a unique creation for Madame Tussauds’ studio team as this project included not only her figure, but also the wrecking ball itself. Together, the figure and the ball weigh more than 200 pounds. Along with a 30 foot long chain, the top of Miley’s head to the bottom of the wrecking ball will stand at more than 10 feet.

The figure and the ball took more than six months to create with a team of 20 dedicated artists. Based on more than 300 precise body measurements, the figure was first sculpted in clay by hand then covered in a plaster cast. Once the clay was removed from the cast, the wax was poured in and allowed to cool. Finally, the figure was fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth; hairs on the head were inserted individually by hand and countless layers of paints and tints were applied to build up skin tones ­ all to achieve an astonishingly lifelike figure.

Miley’s figure will be permanently installed into the attraction’s Music Room.

Madame Tussauds London will be revealing its own unique wax likeness of Miley Cyrus the week following the Las Vegas launch.
