Well, after MUCH consideration, I submitted my original photo in the Mad Men casting call contest! Here’s a screenshot:
Click to vote daily! As you can see, I didn’t wear the dress I’d planned on (which was really more ’40s than ’60s) and didn’t even take photos in the downtown location I’d originally wanted to, but I’m happy with it. Thanks for the help, Katy! (Dress details here, shoes: Nine West.)
I’m going to share a lot more photos from the photoshoot, and I’m definitely interested in what you like, but PLEASE don’t tell me “You should’ve used THAT ONE!” As my friends know, I agonized over the decision much more than a 27-year-old should, trust me!
Just so you know, these photos are a mix of “potential entry” shots, candids, and “playing with angles” shots, etc. These first few are photos I took by myself with my camera’s timer.
And the rest of the photos were taken by my friend Katy – once again, many thanks! First we tried to re-create the gardening shots I took, but they just didn’t work. And sadly, the scooter was gone when Katy arrived!
By the way, if I didn’t already hate smoking, this would have sealed the deal. And I didn’t even inhale. The things I do for you, Mad Men! Doesn’t help that my throat hurt before all the smoking, and now I feel even worse. Hopefully my sick day and meds will do me some good.
Speaking of which, I think it’s time for more Chloraseptic. Mmm, so sexy & stylish!
If you’re so inclined, I would REALLY APPRECIATE your daily votes. I submitted later than a lot of people, so I have some serious catching up to do! Pass it along, Facebook it, Tweet it, whatever! How dreamy would it be to win?! Ok, so my expectations aren’t that grand, but it’d be cool to make it to the semi-finals. :)
