Joan Holloway: Mad Men Cosplay

 Today is the premiere of the 7th season of Mad Men!!  I have been a die-hard fan of Mad Men from the get go.  Not only is it one of the most intelligent, well-written and captivating shows on television it’s also packed full of amazing costuming, styling and set design.  Seeing all those beautiful 60s/70s outfits really inspires me creatively.  I just had to cosplay my favourite character from Mad Men, Joan Holloway!  To make this dress I bought a vintage 60s dress pattern and picked a very Joanie red fabric.  This dress is super comfy and I actually wear it to my work (as a receptionist) quite often.  I like to embrace that Joan strength and power when I sit at my desk as work.
