world's worst waxworks
« on: January 18, 2011, 02:24:20 AM »
check out this shitty waxworks called louis tussaud's that i went to.

have fun guessing who they are meant to be






























^notice the backwards swastika




waxworks shouldn't need name placards




alan partridge?








the queen, looking older than her waxen mother












looks like macaulay culkin

and if that wasn't scary enough, downstairs there was a 'chamber of horrors' with murderers, tortured waxworks, etc.
i would not like to meet the person who made these










out of place draclia











SUDDENLY:



fun fact: this place tried to sell a load of spare wax heads (god knows why, lazy bastards must recycle the bodies) but some couldn't be sold because they were unidentifiable

This reminds of that bewildering ad with Iggy Pop & his Spitting Image.

Maybe that's the point. Surround you with utterly unrealistic plastic embarrassments and then suddenly make you jump.

The sexiest murder of all time: erotic asphyxiation (and starvation).

I would.

I thought it was a particular one not just generally sellotaping an egg box to a woman's face and plumbing it into the gas line.

I imagine if the man who did the downstairs waxworks found himself in a Chris Jefferies sort of situation it would be pretty difficult for him. Especially if there was an egg box involved.

I think that's meant to be Christie:

"notice the backwards swastika"

Manson's swastika is messed up too.

"The first 3 are so bad I had to stop and check that wasn't René wandering accidentally into the shot."

That is rene isn't it?

Mr Bean in the foreground, and behind him: unknown, james Bond, and Rene.

And since when was Bill Oddie a member of Abba?

Michael Heseltine murdering Freddie Mercury?

I'd make a joke along the lines of "actually, that's the real John Major" but a quick check of the calendar informs me it's no longer 1993, so I guess the moment's kinda passed.

I am SO fucking glad I didn't see this thread before I went to sleep last night. Yowch.

Although that Hitler is the best Harry Enfield dummy I've ever seen.

Is this the one in Morecambe? I dimly recall that being called Louis Tussauds, and also remember my Nan taking me thre and the whoe experience making me want to cut myself, at just the age of 12.

I could be wrong but Prince Charles' ears aren't that big are they?



Most of them are recognisable from their clothes. But the faces look like they were done from memory.

I'm guessing it's Joanna Lumley, from the strip she did on Children In Need in the mid-80s. In fact, the most heart-wrenching thing about the collection is the way that it's frozen in time around 1987. It was out of date when I went there at the age of 12.

Young versions of Geoffrey Palmer, Kim Jong Il and Boris Johnson. They used to be mates in the 70s.

I'm going to attempt a critical reappraisal of Mr Bean through that lens.

Bill Oddie in Abba? Saxondale as Charles Manson?

Can someone please tell me who the people are in the Mr Blobby photo (with the exception of Gordon Kaye)? It's doing my head in?
Also, this looks like the bloke from Sex & The City, but I am out of ideas as to who it is:

Inexplicably, the Yorkshire Ripper is really rather good.

Surely that's Ed Straker from Space 1999999999 on the right in the first picture. Before they decided to go live action, sensibly.

Though I suspect he may be one of these two:
