Does this Wax Work?

The obsession with the fairy who plots the murder of an innocent young girl continues... in wax this time.

The latest and smallest addition at Madame Tussauds London can be read about here.

Here are the dimensions:

Height : 5.5 inches
Width of eyes : 2mm
Length of eyelashes : 1mm
Length of fingers : 4mm
Size of fingernails : 1/2mm
Waist size : 1.5cm

At least the height is correct, as per Barrie. However, the same cannot be said of her waist.
Barrie says that Tinker Bell is embonpoint. Take THAT, Hollywood and media! (As in the current damaging portrayal of beauty!)

Though I understand why, it's a bit of a shame that Disney's depiction is used for this dubious honor. Especially since it's in London.

What a shame... I would very much have liked to see a plump Tink.
