One Direction waxworks revealed at Madame Tussauds

One Direction waxworks are revealed at Madame Tussauds in London.
If you thought these were the real One Direction boys, look a little closer! The group have been recreated as waxworks by Madame Tussauds in London.
It takes a team of 20 sculptors about 4 months to make each waxwork. The process started with a sitting, where lots of photographs and measurements were taken.
Next, the boys' heads were sculpted out of clay so that a detailed mould could be made for the final wax head.
Once the wax head is made the sculptors add eyes, teeth and each individual hair! Painting the skin takes a whole week.
The finished waxworks look so life-like, this confused fan has tried to give Harry a cheeky kiss!
The waxworks' clothes were donated by the One Direction boys. Niall said: "This is weird - he's wearing my actual shoes!"
The waxwork boys will be on display in London, before going on tour in New York and Sydney.
