Madame Tussauds Is Making a Steve Jobs Wax Figure That Is Hauntingly Realistic

By Casey Chan on at

Madame Tussauds is making a Steve Jobs wax figure to mark the first anniversary of his death. It's hauntingly realistic—just look at the pictures above—and will, of course, come complete with black cotton turtle neck, Levi's 501 jeans and New Balance 991 trainers.

The wax figure will be displayed at Madam Tussauds Hong Kong and is created using a pose from a 2006 Fortune Magazine cover. It's incredibly detailed—each strand of hair is inserted one by one into the wax head by hand using a forked needle and the iris is hand painted using gouache with fine silk threads for veining. The whole process took three months to complete and will be on display starting September 26th, 2012 to November 26th, 2012. [Madame Tussauds via LA Times]
