If you are a fan of "Mad Men," then you'll have fun with Mad Men Yourself, an interactive dress-up game featuring illustrations by the fabulous Dyna Moe.
After punching a few buttons, this was my result:
I have to say, the results are uncannily accurate. I, too, am freakishly pale, part my hair on the left, have side-swept bangs, wear a lot of dark blue, am in love with my 1928 pen necklace, and would totally stroll into a picnic wearing pearl earrings and carrying a martini.
I was just thinking today of who my favorite "Mad Men" character is. I know a lot of people dislike her, but I really liked Betty Draper at first. The whole "still waters run deep (and crazy)" thing attracted me to her -- I always like that in fictional characters. Plus, I work from home and there are definitely times when I can sympathize with her cabin fever. Betty is no longer my favorite character (which is probably a good thing...), but I'm not sure who to root for. Joan is too retrograde, though I really love her style and looks. I'm not a big fan of any of the male characters. A few years ago, I probably would have sympathized the most with Peggy because I was a young woman trying to climb the rungs in New York City (though I work in journalism, not advertising). That speech that she made in the season two finale really got to me, because I also know on some level what it feels like to suppress or ignore a part of yourself in order to get by in a competitive industry -- and then suddenly realize one day that it's gone forever. But I think Peggy suppresses things a little to well for me to really understand her on a personal level. (And, in my case, suppressing stuff sometimes worked out for the better. For example, I take criticism a lot less personally now!)
Then again, "Mad Men" is an ensemble drama, so it's not like I need to pick and chose. I really love the show and I can't wait for it to return next month!
