Forget performing at the Olympics’ closing ceremony, having nearly eleven million Twitter followers or selling out massive concert venues. We argue that One Direction didn’t really achieve international celebrity until this week, when it was announced that the British pop group would have their likenesses displayed at none other than THE Madame Tussauds.

The life-size figures (can we call them “Wax Direction”?) will be on display at Times Square’s Madame Tussauds from July 19th to October 11th. If you work anywhere in the vicinity of the museum, which is at 43rd Street and 8th Ave., we recommend you plan your commute accordingly. (In other words, prepare to haul yourself through hordes of screaming tweenage girls all vying for a glimpse of Harry Styles’s waxy visage).

If you just can’t wait until July 19th to feast your eyes on the lifelike renditions of your favorite boy band, check out these photos of the sculpting process. And remember, no matter how close you get to Harry Styles—wax or otherwise—he will never, ever follow you back on Twitter.
