Taylor Swift fans were delighted to ‘Shake It Off’ with their heroine yesterday, when Madame Tussauds London gave them a sneak peak of the singer’s wax figure on set in a recreation of the smash hit songs video – complete with lights, cameras and plenty of action.
Fans joined Taylor’s likeness, wearing a cute cheerleader outfit on stage. But in homage to the stars swift changes in the fast paced, action packed video, the figure will be styled in a totally different outfit inspired by her Shake It Off looks every day when it takes up residence in the attraction over February half term (February 14 to 22). And the set at the attraction will also regularly come alive as dancers mirror the amazing choreography in live interactive performances.
TSwifties were quick to give the figure a thumbs-up as they stepped on set with Taylor. Sarah Edwards, 17 from Manchester commented, “The wax figure is so good, I was shocked when I saw her! The set looks amazing, it’s so much fun dressing up and recreating the video with Taylor fans are going to love this.”
“Shake It Off is pure pop genius and we really wanted to create a fun celebration for fans – what better way than inviting them on set to Shake It Off with Taylor” commented Nicole Fenner, PR Manager at Madame Tussauds London. She continued: “The TSwifties here for our preview this morning have certainly had fun. We’ve got lights, cameras and a team of dancers who will bring the set to life during February half term. Fans can dig into a dressing up box and Shake It Off on stage themselves, plus they can win the outfits worn by Taylor’s figure featured over the week if they send their onset shots to @madametussaudslondon on Instagram with #swiftchange.
But Swifties need to be swift to step on set, as the figure is making a very brief guest appearance in London before taking up residence at Madame Tussauds Orlando. The figure will be on stage every day from Saturday February 14 until Sunday February 22 only.
