NEW YORK, July 24 (UPI) -- Jenna Marbles is set to receive a Madame Tussauds wax statue in the fall.

The 28-year-old YouTube star will be the first social media figure immortalized at the museum's New York location. Madame Tussauds began work on the statue earlier this summer, which will see Marbles pose as she takes a selfie.

"Working with Madame Tussauds has been great -- I can't believe I'm getting my own figure," Marbles said in a press release. "Watching the studios team work so diligently to get every last detail of me was an interesting experience and I can't wait to see the finished result!"

"We are thrilled to be working with Jenna Marbles and cannot wait to bring the finished figure to our attraction this fall," New York general manager Bret Pidgeon said. "As we celebrate 15 years in Times Square, it's very exciting to bring two firsts to our guests -- a wax figure of an online sensation AND the very first selfie-taking wax figure in the U.S."

Marbles came to fame with such videos as "How to Trick People into Thinking You're Good Looking," and has over 1.8 billion views and 15 million subscribers as of this month. She and her boyfriend, Julien Solomita, also host the Jenna and Julien Podcast on YouTube.
