Polka Dots and Pearls My Mad Men Character

A quickie for "Mad Men" fans.  Have you seen my Mad Men character avatar?

If you want to make your own 1960's inspired version of yourself, visit Mad Men Yourself at amctv to make your own, free avatar.  It's easy, quick, and you hear a little swinging 60's beat while you are selecting the options to make your own digital paper doll.  This is for the "suits" or the "skirts" with lots of features.

The office gang at Sterling Cooper Mad Men
the newest avatar for New End Studio is from Mad Men











I'm the bombshell in the yellow dress with white polka dots,  wearing pearls, and carrying a red pocketbook!  Okay, maybe not a bombshell.

I love my big hair and eyeshadow.  I've never made an avatar before and it was fun.  Some of the accessories wouldn't load properly, such as the gloves wouldn't fit over the arms.  I would've liked to change the shoes, but that wasn't an option.  Gotta have lots of shoes if you're going to be a Madison Avenue Woman!

Sorry, Don, can't stop and chat- I've got the pitch for the next preview meeting!

Are you a bombshell, the girl next door, or career girl?  Combination? This is only make believe.  

I searched through the ads at Found in Mom's Basement to put together these collages of vintage ads from the late 1950's -mid 1960's.  She posted some gorgeous fashion and cosmetic ads,  as well as numerous other categories of vintage ads, but I chose the ones that makes you go, "hmmm" or laugh.

Sexist.  Outrageous.  Stupid.  Funny.  Look at the details on the Durkee French Fried Onions coupon- I never wanted to think of onions and paint/chemicals coming from the same company.  I've only had these onions once or twice, what about  you?  Click the collages to enlarge.





Do you have a favorite of these ads?

Your Mad Men avatar is glamorous! That is definately one of my favorite shows of all time! The old ads are a riot. My dad has a huge collection of old National Geographic magazines dating back to the 1930s. It is so much fun to flip through them!!!
