On Tuesday of this week, Steve Aoki's wax figure was debuted at an exclusive event at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas as part of the attraction's new DJ Experience. After the initial reveal, Aoki was able to cake his own wax figure, which we're sure must have been a surreal experience. When asked about the completed wax figure, Aoki said,
“Getting a wax figure is a career milestone. It wouldn’t be an Aoki party without a caking, and I’ve thrown many, but caking myself was a truly unique experience.”

Over 200 measurements were taken on Aoki in order to perfect his wax figure. It even wears custom jeans from Dim Mak! Now, the completed version joins many others at the Las Vegas location including Justin Bieber, Bruno Mars, and Miley Cyrus. Having a wax figure is a huge honor for Aoki, especially due it being in Vegas, where he plays many shows.
"To be on the Strip at Madame Tussauds, where my fans can visit and get behind the decks with my wax figure, is a big deal. I’m going to come by every day and check myself out."
