WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The Presidents Gallery by Madame Tussauds is adding a figure of Lady Gaga to the Washington wax museum and is inviting visitors to join a Gaga-inspired costume contest.
The Gaga figure is set to arrive at the museum Monday. The wax figure depicts the pop star in a one-shoulder, black latex body suit with huge platform shoes. Her hair is styled in the shape of a bow. The figure is on loan from the Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas through the end of June.
When the figure is unveiled Monday morning, the museum will be giving away an iPod and iTunes gift cards to visitors wearing the top five costumes inspired by Gaga. Fans dressed in Gaga outfits also will receive free admission.
Also being featured at the DC location is “The Michael Jackson Experience”, featuring wax models of the deceased pop icon in three different stages of his career. The MJ Experience was originally scheduled to be in DC until March 23, but was so successful that the museum has extended its run to June 28, 2012.
