To promote the third season of Mad Men, AMC has a new website that allows you to create an avatar in “Mad Men” style. You can dress up as Don, Peggy, Joan, Roger or create someone new! I created myself sharing a drink with Don Draper (of course, darling!). You can save the image as a thumbnail for Twitter, a medium size for your iPhone and a full-size for your desktop.
Just go to www.madmenyourself.com and have fun! You will spend a lot of time playing dress-up.
The illustrations are done by the fabulous Dyna Moe, illustrator extraordinaire and a swell gal.
Be sleek, be stylish, be yourself!
