When it comes to making wax figures of iconic celebrities, things can go one of two ways.
They can be really, really good. So good that the star’s own family is sometimes unable to tell the difference, à la Kylie Jenner’s creation.
Or they can be so bad that anyone who casts their eyes on it will be so traumatised they will probably never sleep again.
Unfortunately for Lady Gaga, the latest wax figure made in her honour falls into the latter camp.
For reference, this is what the 31-year-old actor and singer looked like at a performance last week:
And this is the statue of Gaga a museum in Lima, Peru just unveiled:

Yeah that's... that's not even close, guys.
To make matters worse, the figure is dressed in one of the performer's most iconic outfits of all time: the infamous meat dress she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010.
It's safe to say her fans were less than impressed with the 'tribute':

At least Gaga isn't alone when it comes to being made into a wax version of a nightmare'.
In July, a wax figure of Beyoncé at Madame Tussauds in New York had to be given a 'makeover' after fans slammed the figure for being too white.
