During our visit to California last May, we asked Kurt to take us to Madame Tussauds’ wax museum. We passed by this place last year during our walk around Hollywood Boulevard, but we were pressed for time back then so we didn’t get a chance to go inside.
We were in Hollywood, so of course there were plenty of sidewalk character impersonators outside the museum
Looks like there’s a Spidey convention going on
Master Yoda. Very tall you have gotten.
There was this Wolverine impersonator who looks amazingly like Hugh Jackman
I wasn’t able to get a shot of him facing the camera, but look at him! He looks like the real deal!
Before heading inside the museum, we took a quick photo with this giant Oscar
We also posed with Shrek for a bit. He was there to welcome the visitors at the museum.
Ticket counter. Kurt actually bought our tickets online because it was cheaper, but we had to pick them up here.
We had to take an elevator to get to displays. The inside of the elevator was plastered with photos of celebrities
Once we got to the entrance, I was disappointed to see that there were a lot of people already inside. I was hoping we’d be able to have the place to ourselves for a while since we came really early. But then I realized that most of the people weren’t moving. It turned out that they were the wax figures!
There’s only one real person in this shot – everyone else is a wax statue
Isn’t that cool? I didn’t expect the displays to be out in the open like this. I’ve only been to one other wax museum before and all the statues were behind velvet ropes.
Even this photographer was made of wax. He was there to greet us as soon as we got off the elevator. I actually stood and posed for a while because I thought that there really was someone taking pictures of us. (A photographer took our picture right before we got on the elevator, so I thought that this guy worked for the museum too.)
I love that visitors were free to go up to the statues and touch them – something that was definitely not allowed in the other wax museum I went to.
Ezra was very impressed at how lifelike Lady Gaga looked
Check out those eyes
We were blown away by the details on these figures
Even Ryan Reynolds’ stubble looked real!
We spent our morning going around the museum and posing with the “celebrities”
Here’s Ezra and Kurt with Snoop Dogg (or Snoop Lion as he’s known now)
Brangelina with their new adopted daughter
Keeping it classy with Selma Hayek
Kurt fanboying over Selena Gomez
Oops I did it again XD
Hello there Mr. Smith
Ezra was fascinated by how real he looked again
With Sandra Bullock – the queen of rom-coms
Here’s Julia Roberts, another rom-com favorite
With Morgan Freeman. At this point one of the museum’s staff came up to us and advised us not to look at the camera when we pose with the displays. He said it will make the photo look more realistic.
Taking a little break before moving on to the next exhibit. Cheers~
Is this how Kurt picks up girls at a bar?
We made a quick pit stop before moving down one floor. I thought it was cool how even the bathroom had a Hollywood theme:
The bathroom stall doors looked like the doors to a dressing room:
The mirrors also had fun stickers (like funky glasses, cute hats and wacky mustaches). I took a few photos of Ezra and me goofing around with them but I think I accidentally deleted them because I can’t find them anywhere T__T
With Marlene Dietrich
Charlie Chaplin (I love how the museum provides us with suitable props to pose with :D)
Having tea with Ingrid Bergman from Casablanca
Staring off into space with Vivien Leigh from Gone with the Wind
Um, I forgot who this guy is
Nice Kurt – that’s totally how those things should be worn
Interrupting Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire to deliver an urgent message
Peter O’Toole from Lawrence of Arabia
Getting cozy with Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra
Kurt looks a little too pleased as he crawls into bed with her XD
Chatting it up with Audrey Hepburn (Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
The famous scene for Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock
