I just wasted some time creating my very own Mad Men avatar on the AMC Website. It’s a cross between paper dolls and Colorforms . . . without those pesky physical objects. You get to choose your body type, hair color, outfit, accessories, and scenery. A jaunty pedal-pusher ensemble was my first choice but it looked out of place at Sterling Cooper. Inappropriate avatars simply won’t do.

The newspaper is in honor of my years as a visual journalist. Sadly, the other hand was only allowed to carry a purse, and I didn’t like any of them. No fair! The male avatars were able to carry a newspaper AND a cocktail.

If you decide to play with this, make sure you check out the accordion.
