mad men casting call

okay okay there will be no more mad men posts for a while, this is the last one i promise

have you voted in the mad men casting call competition? basically people take photos of themselves in mad men era get-ups hoping to win a walk on role in an episode of the show. rad! i have to say i do not agree with who is top ranked right now…. these are my personal favourites (click on the pics to be taken to their pages to vote)

bethany obrecht‘s work is so well styled & photographed, for a second i thought they were genuine vintage photos. i think mad men should hire her. you can see the entire series at her flickr.
