As I sit here in the time between television and a sense of nostalgia for my favorite show, Mad Men, May I just have to dress up your family and friends and keep the plot rolling in his invented world. If you've never seen Mad Men, you're crazy! This Golden Globe and Emmy-winning television drama that airs on the AMC channel is part of a large brow drama, part social commentary, and some spooky fun kitschy. Set the TiVo for a season in four 2010 if you are not afraid to dive into the issues of cigarette smoking, drinking, sexism, adultery, homophobia, antisemitism and racism that were present in 1960.
One thing you'll notice immediately when watching Mad Men is the historical authenticity and visual style of the 60s costumes, sets and locations. Designers spend painstaking hours to re-image this time, the old shopping thrift stores, hunting through antique markets, loans from private collections and create replicas of clothing, furniture and props. With a little ingenuity, an attack by a grandparent in a closet and some good costume props, you can create a Mad Men costume of their choice.
