Adele has quite a unique look, which means that a wax figure that doesn’t get the look right is going to be noticeable at a glance. For instance, in the picture here. It almost has a skeletal aspect to it, which doesn’t really ring true to the real thing.
While some of the details look like they could belong to the famous singer, if you really think about how this figure looks, you’ll realize it doesn’t look all that much like Adele. Like they took her apart and used the same pieces to put her back together, but they had lost some of the hardware so things aren’t hanging the right way.
Did you know that Halle Berry has won an Academy Award for best actress? She got it for her work in “Monster's Ball,” in 2002. She's had plenty of other awards, too. So why does her wax figure look like a dime-store version of her?
The winning smile is just slightly there, the deliriously high cheekbones are sunken, and the hair is a little too tossed. Berry does prefer a dressed-down style in many of her appearances, but that's a bit too much. The eyebrows are quite intense, which seem to go against Berry's easy-going look.
A young Superboy looks out at his farm, ready to learn all about truth, justice, and the American way. That's the story we've come up with, and we're sticking to it. This couldn't possibly be footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. It just looks nothing like him. The face has a youthful, boyish quality that is no longer present in the real deal.
Zoomed in as this picture is, it's simple to tell that it's wax and not skin that is covering that unnatural bone structure. Really, a lot of these figures end up with the same issue: the eyes. They end up looking so doll-like. The eyes are critical to somebody looking real, and they're so easy to get wrong.
It looks like poor Kate was hit with a face rearranger, and then they tried to put everything back in the right spot, but they lost some pieces and turned her mouth the wrong way, and swapped her eyes. In reality, this wax figure isn't too bad, but there's something distinctly off about her lips and chin.
We don't know exactly what it is, but we don't think it's sadness from losing Jack after all this time. Her hair also looks like it's clumped together, almost like tentacles from an angry sea beast. Finally, the skin is far too doll-like for anybody to take it seriously.
If you came across the person on the right in a dark alley, you would do whatever it told you to do, up to and including pointing out that she seems to be melting. It clearly looks nothing like Jennifer Lopez, despite it claiming to be the person it's supposed to be.
Just compare the two pictures you see here – the eyes are vivid and staring, though without the same easy power as the real thing. The hair line (and the hair itself) doesn't stand up under any kind of scrutiny and looks like it could use a good brushing, too. The skin has such a sheen that it looks like Lopez is sweating heavily.
