You know you’ve made it as a celeb when you get your own wax figure at famed wax museum Madame Tussauds.

Just look at this snap of Ah Jie Zoe Tay posing next to her Madame Tussauds figure.

1 of 21 Zoe's wax figure even got a little outfit update last year.

Or this snap, of Fan Bingbing and her wax doppelganger.

    But apart from getting immortalised in wax at a Madame Tussauds museum, celebs also run the risk of getting their likeness replicated by less-than-skillful wax artistes, whose work can be found in various bootleg wax museums.

    And more often than not, these C-list wax figures end up looking more horrifying than pleasing.

    Recently, this wax figure (see below) of Chinese actress Yang Mi has gone viral, not for how good it looks, but for how terrifying it is.

    Just take a look at it.

    Does anyone else get a faint White Chicks vibe from the figure?

    But thanks to this wax model, the spotlight has been cast once again on the many other horrifying wax iterations of various celebs.

    Can you guess who they are supposed to resemble?
