My Al Capone Wax Figure
The Al Capone mannequin as it looks today.
This Al Capone wax figure was recently sold at auction after the Criminals Hall of Fame at Niagara Falls Canada closed in 2014. It had been opened since 1977.
I figured my collection should have a mascot and this guy was already in Canada. He was the only figure in that museum that really ressembled the actual live person. Not perfection like the high priced museum wax pieces but I figured that with some simple upgrades he would look closely like again.
Criminals Hall of Fame, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
While this figure still looked cool, I'm a stickler for details and wanted to make it more correct.
The overcoat and hat aren't correct. The shoes are black shoes painted white to make them look two tone.The suit was glued and the pants were cut at the back to make them fit.
Al's eyes on the figure were brown. I put the correct type of hat worn.
I put in the gray colored contacts to make it look more authentic. I also put some fake trimmed eyelashes.
Note the missing hair on the left eyebrow.
Contacts in, eyelashes applied and eyebrow corrected.
The scars are almost spot on!
It was hard to find a correct fitting suit as a mannequin is not the same size as a human being. Normally a human has a 6 inch difference between chest and waist. This figure was 46 inches from chest to waist. Found the suit on ebay, along with a gray coat, gray vest, gray spats and two toned black and white shoes. Got him a striped tie, hanky, belt and watch chain.
Straw boater? Sunglasses? The possibilities are endless!

Doesn't look like much but wait!

Dapper Alphonse Capone
Don't mess with Al as Giunta, Scalise and Anselmi found out. Loyalty is non negotiable.
Big Al completed.
Before and after
Cuban cigar and a Thompson.
Eyelashes, nose and ear hair help make it more authentic.
