Don & Betty Draper Halloween Costume Inspiration

It’s not a ridiculously original idea or anything but since the husband and I have just recently finished watching the entire Mad Men series, we thought we’d go as Don & Betty Draper for Halloween.

I’ve been searching a little online for some great early 60’s dresses & may buy a few just in case, but we’ll probably go shopping at Iguana in Sherman Oaks because it’s packed wall to wall with vintage dresses and suits. Though it’s a bit smelly and overpriced, it will be easier to find what we both need instead of traipsing all over town from thrift shop to thrift shop getting cranky & returning home empty-handed. Well actually I would get cranky if we couldn’t find what we need. The husband would get cranky because he thinks used clothes are disgusting and would end up murdering me for making him try on other people’s old duds repetitively. He has no respect for vintage 😉

Though Joan would be a bit more fun for a costume {& Roger is a hot silver fox}, the husband and I are already Don & Betty Draper-esque so it will just be easier. To get her short 60’s bob, I’ll probably do my easy faux bob {hair tutorial} or maybe just do a massive up-do. But either way, I think I’ll film it just for fun.

This is a little inspiration board, mostly for me to refer to when getting all Draper’d out for our Halloween party.
