Madame Tussauds Launches Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo gets waxed at Madame Tussauds New York!
Madame Tussauds New York kicks off the countdown to the 2014 FIFA World Cup with the launch of Cristiano Ronaldo's wax figure on June 25, 2013. 50 cheering students and passionate “CR7” fans from Escola Lusitania helped unveil the wax figure of the soccer superstar at the famed Times Square attraction.
Earlier this year, the students from the Portuguese School of the Portuguese Club of Long Branch started the “Cristiano Ronaldo at Madame Tussauds in NY City” Facebook page to garner support to bring a wax figure of the soccer superstar to the Times Square attraction.
Using hundreds of photos and detailed measurements of Ronaldo, the artists at Madame Tussauds spent about four months creating his wax figure. Every aspect of the figure was meticulously constructed, right down to the placement of each individual strand of hair on the figure's head.
