casting call sneak peek

July 27, 2010 at 12:16 am 8 comments

For those who haven’t heard, AMC has partnered with Banana Republic for the Mad Men Casting Call, the grand prize of which is a walk-on role on Mad Men & a $1,000 Banana gift card. Shut the door! Have a seat! Say what!? You could say I am mildly insanely interested in this. :)

Promo code acquired, I plan to take photos Tuesday evening with the help of my friend Katy. But first – some prep:

Nothing like a little ironing to get you in the ’60s domestic spirit!

Messin’ with my hair – I don’t know if this is right. Hopefully I can come up with something satisfying for the actual photos!

Will you vote for me??

    I had hair styling issues with trying to figure out what to do with my hair for the contest. The only character I could find with long hair was the divorced neighborhood mom from season 1, and she wore it kind of half pulled back at times so that’s what I went with. Up do’s are not in my skill set. You’re lucky, your hair is soooo much better suited for that era!

      haha, well now that I’m doubting the dress, the hair is the least of my worries! but thanks, hopefully it will all come together. It’s not like I have a huge shot, but I may as well try to increase my chances as much as possible!
