Waxy!

Many of you probably heard about Taylor Swift's new(ish) wax figure. No? Well, you have now!
On October 27th (it was a Wednesday), Madame Tussauds (in New York) revealed a wax figure of Taylor Swift. It took MT four months to create. Taylor posed next to it wearing the exact same dress as the figure, and that made it look, actually, quite funny. But, and I know I'm being picky, the wax figure does not really look like Taylor. Add one point for each similarity, subtract one point for each difference. 0-2 total points = different. 3-5 points = similar. 6-8 total points = identical. Let the games begin!
  • The hair is different. This, of course, is totally acceptable; every celebrity changes their hair! Non-Fake Taylor probably wore it that length and color at some point! +1pt
  • The eyebrows are very well-done. They actually look like a perfect match to me! (Except Actual Taylor's are a bit darker, I think, aren't they?) +1pt
  • The eyes are kind-of the same. Human Taylor's actually look smaller to me...could Wax Taylor be wearing more make-up than Alive Taylor?! (I'm not hinting that Real Taylor wears too much make-up or anything, that was a joke.) -1pt
  • The nose is identical. Seriously. Look at that. Exact replica, people! +1pt
  • The lips are probably the same. Of course, celebrities switch their lipsticks, and Breathing Taylor chose to wear red that day, while Mannequin Taylor chose to wear nude. Acceptable. +1pt
  • The face shapes are different. Impostor Taylor's face is much, much less of a heart shape than Non-Impostor Taylor. -1pt
  • The bones around the collarbone-area are not the same. But I'm not taking points off for that. Come on, Look-Alike Taylor can't be identical to Alive and Breathing Taylor, can she?! +1pt
  • The skin tone is not the same. Counterfeit Taylor is much paler than True Taylor, am I right? -1pt
Okay, so get ready for math:
0 + 1 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
2 - 1 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 1 = 3
3 - 1 = 2
2 + 1 = 3
3 - 1 = 2
Total points: 2
This puts Taylor's wax figure in the different category.
What are your opinions on the wax figure?
