As I’ve mentioned before, I love me a off-brand wax museum. And it looks like the Wax Museum Plus in Dublin, Ireland, is exactly my kind of shit. They’re cashing in on the current outbreak of Game of Thrones fever by debuting a new figure that’s supposed to be Daenerys Targaryen, but it looks more like they just pulled the old Lea Michele figure from their erstwhile Glee collection and slapped a mop head on it. They would have had better luck with the Sue Sylvester figure.
Is this your Mother of Dragons?

I’m not sure what the Plus in Wax Museum Plus is supposed to be, but if it’s Wax Museum Plus a Good Laugh, then job well done. At least they matched the wig budget for the HBO production. This gives me hope that with a little ingenuity, I too could mount a money making tourist attraction out of my own home by gluing a couple of caterpillars onto a discarded Ross Dress for Less mannequin head and charge people $15 for the pleasure of its company. Here’s how they teased the big reveal.

And then there was the literal unveiling.

I guess they pulled the body from their defunct Little Women: LA collection. The security barrier was quite unnecessary. I have a feeling people will be quickly trying to move away from “Danny“. They really need to change the name to Wax Museum Minus (Quality or Attention to Detail). That said, next time I’m in Dublin, I will absolutely be visiting Wax Museum Plus Or Minus: Your Guess Is As Good As Ours.
