I find Geri's pose really boring, she had more life than that. They could've made her doing the girl power/peace sign she was famous for doing. Anyway, watch them remove Victoria's waxwork from the group if they reunite without her :D

Geri's wax figure was created in the early 2000s, so her figure wasn't created to look like 'Ginger Spice'. One thing I've noticed though, is since adding her to the museum, they've made her boobs bigger :laugh:

The wax figures look so much better in better lighting! Especially Geri's!

There is always someone missing in NYC. When I was there, it was Emma's turn.

New York was the only place we still had spice wax.

They've put N'SYNC in the place of the spice girls.

Now we only have Victoria and Beckham in the London one.

Maybe their waxes will be recycled for the Beckham family. :dee:

Back in the day I had the chance to see the original four at Rock circus in London and Mel B and Mel C faces were really good.

I sent an email to NYC Madam Tussaud, and look what they wrote:


Dear Diego,
The Spice Girls are getting remodeled and they will be back on the viewing floor in approximately 2 weeks. We generally take the figures off the floor to ensure that they are looking at their best so we treat them as humans, meaning hair gets washed, clothes get dry cleaned and any other general maintenance that is required.

Two weeks for five figures, they might just be getting repainted and having their hair done and washed. Unless new wardrobe is already ready to go for all of them.

Unfortunately I think this is probably true especially since it has been a particularly long time since they last gave them a new look. Madame Tussauds in New York aren't very creative when it comes to new looks normally. Their Lady Gaga figure is a good example of that. She is known for her many amazing looks and costumes, but they're dressed her in a blank black catsuit...

I agree, I have never understood why they are always dressed so badly.
It would be nice to see one of their iconic look of the 90s, that's how people remember them as a group.

I visited last year, and the NYC wax museum is all about new / current people. There are a few classics, but they are kinda forgotten in a corner.

They could easily remove the Spice Girls in favor of current figures, as the old ones are hardly cared about, and the NYC people wouldn't even notice.
So the nice clothes and the best hairs go to the main room's figures. The Spice girls are in a small room, and you get to see them when you have been in the museum for more than an hour.

It is really a miracle just the fact that the Spice Girls are still there, and I was really thankful for that, instead of being picky about their clothes or looks.
I take what I can get, they are one of the oldest figures, and when you go there you realize they are clearly not the main atraction, not even close, and they are forgotten. Not only the clothes, the painting also looks old and washed out compared to the brand new figures that look polished and groomed.

The museum will not invest money on the Spice Girls figures because visitors don't come to see them. So don't complain about their clothes and be thankful the whole figures are not being recycled.
