Creating an accurate-looking wax figure based on a celebrity is clearly hard to do because it seems at least once every few months, a new one emerges and leaves fans scratching their heads. In recent years, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna have all fallen victim to a less-than-perfect wax representation (although a Madame Tussauds figure of Drake from 2019 was actually pretty good). Now, there’s a new wax figure of Billie Eilish out there, and it’s not quite up to Drake-level quality.
Hollywood Wax Museum unveiled the new figure yesterday (June 26, as ET Canada notes) and when fans got a look at it, they had criticisms and plenty of them.

A common reaction is that the figure makes 20-year-old Eilish look far more aged than she actually is. Others thought Eilish looks like Shawn Wayans and Marlon Wayans in White Chicks. Other less referential comments just insist flat-out that the figure is no good.
Yeah it’s Billie Eilish when she is 50 years old 🥴. One day we’ll all admit ppl need to stop making wax figures https://t.co/gIU2hrZgVv

This actually isn’t the first time Eilish has been immortalized in wax, as a figure of her in her green hair era debuted in 2020 at a Barcelona museum. Like the new figure, that one was also not well-received.
