Awkwafina is Nora From Queens... and Now a Wax Figure! 🌐
New York-native and multi-talented actress, writer, and producer Nora Lum – best known to the world as Awkwafina – met her TWO wax figures for the first time in her hometown Queens at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, once home to the historic New York World’s Fair, amidst stunning views of the globally recognized local landmark The Unisphere.
Known for her incredible talent and infectious charm, Awkwafina has taken the entertainment world by storm over the years, earning rave reviews for her performances in Warner Bros. now-classic film Crazy Rich Asians and her hit Comedy Central series Nora From Queens. In 2020 she won the Golden Globe Award for ‘Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical’ for her performance in Lulu Wang's The Farewell.
The New York figure is set in a dynamic pose that embodies the star's vibrant and charismatic spirit, dressed in an elegant blue gown, matching earrings, silver heels, a ring, and Awkwafina’s signature ‘NY’ wrist tattoo. The look is reminiscent of the high-neck, deep V bodice organza Monique Lhuillie gown Awkwafina wore to the 2021 Emmy Awards.

Your savior is here! Kneel before the God of Mischief in the MARVEL Hall of Heroes. Loki, God of Mischief, has teleported straight to Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square after an official debut at New York Comic Con. The Loki figure is inspired by his character from the quintessential 'Battle of New York' sequence featured in Marvel Studios’ The Avengers (2012), making New York City the perfect home for The God of Mischief. To celebrate the arrival, Madame Tussauds placed the Loki figure in front of Grand Central Terminal, an iconic view immediately recognizable by Marvel fans as the site of the battle and one of the most historic New York City landmarks. The notorious Asgardian trickster is sporting his classic headpiece, glowing scepter and green and gold cloak.
