    According to the official press release, the wax figure will recreate her appearance from the album Selena Live!, which she recorded in 1993 at the Memorial Colliseum in Corpus Christi, Texas.

    Madame Tussauds is working closely with the Quintanilla family to nail down the pose and expression, as well as wardrobe, makeup, and hairstyle.

    Maddam Tussauds also paid a visit to The Selena Museum in Corpus Christi, Texas.

    “This is yet another step in making sure that her legacy lives on and that her fans new and old can appreciate her as a person, an artist, and one whom we can all identify with,” said Suzette Arriaga, Selena's sister.

    The decision to create the statue comes at the heels of a Change.org petition, which was signed by nearly 10,000 people.

    Besides getting her own wax figure, Selena is getting her own MAC makeup line this October, and she's also receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.
