The real Michelle Obama has arrived in the White House, so why not a wax version, too? Madame Tussauds of Washington, the legendary wax museum, will unveil a wax copy of the first lady in March and, as you can see by the photos below, her face is already being sculpted. It's no easy process to create these figures. The head can take five weeks alone and each strand of hair is inserted individually. Obama will be the third first lady on display at the museum following Jacqueline Kennedy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. And the new piece will be posed next to wax Barack Obama in a replica of the Oval Office.
