My visit to London’s Madame Tussauds was fated to coincide with the day in which I upgraded my mobile to a smartphone. The new phone allowed me to take my first ever selfies.
Moving through the various zones, I took selfies with film and sports stars, pop music and cultural icons, historical characters and world leaders.
Here are the results; complete with instagram effects:
Aside from photo opportunities, there was: a section explaining the history of Madame Tussauds –
which began its life on Baker Street in London; a two minute taxi-cab ride through London’s past; and a Marvel 4D cinematic experience where you get sprayed on when Hulk sneezes and puffed on when Hulk’s clapping creates a concussive effect.
While waiting to enter the superhero “command centre” for the 4D experience, I explained the project to Des, who was working as a crowd controlling laboratory assistant.
Des gave the montage a Madame Tussaud’s photo-frame and then sent me to meet his friend Michael at The Harry Potter Shop at Kings Cross station.
