International superstar Pitbull met his match in Orlando, when he unveiled his new wax figure for Madame Tussauds Orlando on Friday, May 29at the attraction's new International Drive location.
Pitbull met with Madame Tussauds artists in Las Vegas in May 2014, where more than 300 precise measurements of his face, head and body were taken to create the true-to-life figure. Pitbull was involved throughout the process and selected his figure's pose and facial expression. He donated the figure's clothing - and sunglasses - to reflect his signature sophisticated style. The figure, dressed in a black tuxedo, is styled in a power pose with Pitbull's piercing, intense gaze.
"I'm ready to see my figure! Looking back, it was a great experience to sit with the Madame Tussauds artists who worked hard to capture every detail," said Pitbull prior to the unveiling. "Having been born and raised in Florida, it truly is an honor to have this figure in Orlando."
