Wax figures are such a weird part of celebrity. It’s supposed to be an honor, but sometimes the results don’t seem especially prize-worthy.
Unlike Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and some other stars who probably wish someone melted theirs, a new one of today’s birthday girl Khloé Kardashian, made by wax pros at Madame Tussauds at its Las Vegas location, has been getting great feedback for its lifelike look.
A post shared by Madame Tussauds Las Vegas (@tussaudsvegas) on Jun 26, 2018 at 12:11pm PDT
And the reality TV star, who cooperated with the company in making it, loves it.

Fans are the toughest critics though, so here’s what they said:

Wow this is the first wax figure that actually looks believable 🙌🏻✨😆

Some thought it looked like her but pointed out how much her own look has changed through the years.
Khloe Kardashian wax figure looks more like Khloe Kardashian than Khloe Kardashian

I didn’t know it was a wax figure until I read the comments. It actually looks better than the real Khloé.

As much as I love the Kardashian’s, the only reason why their wax figures look so real is because 90% of them is fake & molded into societies “goals” 😂❤️

Yeah the wax figure has less plastic than the real thing

Is it just me that thinks that the wax figure has a much real looking butt than the actual real life Khloe ?

Of course, it was compared with her siblings’ wax figures.

kim has so much wax figures but none of them are as accurate as this one ! 😍

And some people were just annoyed she had one in general because: Kardashians!
What's her talent? Acting, singing, dancing, writting, modeling? None. I don't know why she got a wax figure. She got butt implants, big fake lips and fake hair, every girl in Hollywood basically. Must be cuz she has the famous last name. That's it!

Fun fact: Khloé donated her clothes for hers, including a black lace bodysuit, Good American jeans (of course), and Louboutin heels. It was a funny coincidence for this fan who met Khloé when she was wearing that outfit.

Here’s what else we know about Khloé’s new wax figure, which is posed in front of a flower wall because she is a Kardashian and Kardashians love flower walls more than they love themselves. She was “closely involved in the figure creating process,” says the press release from the company. She met with artists for a sitting last year, which included people taking “over 250 measurements and photographs for reference.”
For those keeping track at home, Kim, Kylie, and Kendall all have wax figures at Madame Tussauds. Kourtney is probably annoyed to be left off the list — again.
