Halloween Costume Inspiration: Megan Draper from Mad Men

For my final Halloween costume inspiration I chose a television character who is the envy of women everywhere: Mad Men's Megan Draper. And really, who wouldn't want to look like this sexy swinging sixties siren?

For this costume, you'll need a black, long-sleeved mini-dress (preferably with sheer sleeves), fishnets, black pumps, sparkly jewelry, and a microphone. To get her voluminous hair, use hot rollers or a large barrel curling iron to curl hair under, then tease and hairspray it into place. Her makeup is a bit more involved, but totally doable--you'll need a wash of white eye shadow, dark shadow for the crease, tons of black liquid eyeliner, false lashes, nude lips, and white nail polish. For a great video on sixties makeup, watch this tutorial by the incredible Lisa Eldridge. Here is my version of the mod look that Megan wore to Don's birthday party:

Oh, and of course you'll also need to learn the words to "Zou Bisou Bisou." You do know French, right?
