Oscar Wilde looks rather unfriendly in that picture. I've always steered clear of Madame Tussaud's because I'm afraid it would be creepy - was it creepy?

Rachel said...

is it me or does Oscar Wilde look uncannily like Rupert Everett?!

Lovely photos Claire! You look so delighted to be in such illustrious company!

verity said...

Not sure Oscar Wilde is gripped by your company Claire!

Steph said...

Ha! At first I thought these were look-alike actors and was really impressed... and now that I know they are not, well, I'm still pretty impressed! I guess they do look quite lifelike!

Jenny, he does look rather aloof.
I was scared as a child by the movie Waxworks/House of Wax but these aren't too creepy, if uncannily realistic at times.

Rachel, he does! Although do you mean before or after the awful plastic surgery?!

I was thoroughly delighted and my sister was somewhat confused (there was a definite generation gap between us).

Verity, no, he wasn't. I think he was too busy intentionally ignoring Prince Harry who is standing behind him.

Steph, they are very lifelike!

Brilliant pictures, I didnt have my pics done with anyone literary when I was there am kicking myself.

JoAnn said...

You look like you're enjoying the company. Great pictures!

Paperback Reader said...

Simon, I visited around four years ago and didn't take photos with ANYONE and that defies explanation.

JoAnn, I was ridiculously excited!

Darlene said...

Wow! That's really impressive, I too thought they were stage actors. What fun!

Paperback Reader said...

Darlene, it was lots of fun!

I can't believe you went to Madame Tussaud's!!! I have purposely stayed clear of it for 11 years and counting. Hehehe.

Paperback Reader said...

In my defence, Kim, I went with my 12 year old sister who has never visited London before! She loved it :).

Ah, you're forgiven then. ;-)
