Top show: Red Carpet is set to reopen on April 14.
GUANGZHOU: Malaysians who visit Red Carpet @ i-City will soon not only be able to look at wax statues of their favourite stars, but get a mini statue of themselves.
i-City is set to open a 3D imaging studio late next month, where visitors can get their own statues – measuring between 25cm and 35cm – made.
“All visitors need to do in the studio will be to pose in their chosen attire for about five to seven minutes for image mapping.
“The actual statue will be ready in about a week,” said I-Berhad information manager Tang Soke Cheng at a strategic alliance signing ceremony between the company and Zhongshan City Elephant Sculpture Art here.
The co-operation paves the way for Red Carpet to bring 3D image mapping technology to Malaysia.
Red Carpet, which closed late last year following an arson attack, will reopen on April 14.
New additions include wax exhibits with enhanced interactive features like voice, motion, sound effects and theatrical backdrop.
“This will go a long way in increasing the life likeness of our wax statues, giving more clout to Red Carpet as a world-class attraction,” said Tang.
