From Fat Betty Francis to Megan Draper's Zou Bisou Bisou, now Barbie takes on the Mad Men cast
23:21 GMT, 4 June 2012
She's been everything from a fireman to the U.S. President. Now Barbie's latest job is impersonating the Mad Men cast.
A New York photographer has modified a collection of Barbie dolls to represent characters from the current season of the hit AMC series.
The eight characters include 'Fat' Betty Francis with a can of 'inhalable whipped cream', Megan Draper in her Zou Bisou Bisou dress and Joan Holloway Harris with added 'illegitimate b*****d carriage'.
Uncanny: A New York photographer has created a collection of Mad Men Barbie dolls. The set includes Fat Betty Francis, left, with a 'Weight Watchers scales' accessory and Megan Draper, right, in her 'Zou Bisou Bisou' LBD
Barbie has also been dressed as Peggy Olson while a smaller doll, which does not appear to be a Barbie, has been used to represent Sally Draper.
Complete with cheeky accessories, the dolls
are arguably more accurate than the official Mad Men collection released by Mattel in 2010.
Created by Michael Williams of the blog Mylifeinplastic.com, the new dolls are not for sale.
But images of the creations have captured humorous accessories.
Amusing: Joan Holloway Harris has also been represented with carriage and 'emerald necklace of shame'
The Fat Betty Francis doll has been
given a set of Weight Watchers scales as well as two ice cream sundaes
and an ice cream scoop.
It is, of course, poking fun at the
character's recent weight gain.
Poking fun: The Roger Sterling doll comes with what is described as a 'b*****d baby'
The Joan Holloway Harris doll wears a 'fur coat
Roger Sterling gifted her' and an 'emerald necklace of shame'.
As Megan Draper, Barbie is dressed
in a similar LBD to the one worn by the character when she serenaded Don at a surprise
birthday party on screen.
The doll also carries a 'microphone
for serenading Don with French ye-ye chanson Zou Bisou Bisou' and comes with orange sherbet and an audition script.
Barbie has also dressed up as Peggy Olson.
As Peggy, the doll carries a 'handbag with a 'wad of cash from Roger', 'movie popcorn with
special sauce', 'failed Heinz Baked Beans ad campaign' and a
'post-resignation thermos and mug'.
The Sally doll features a 'pink princess phone for clandestine phone conversations with Glen Bishop', a 'family tree diagram', a copy of the New York Post with the nurses' murder story on the front cover and a 'pre-fat Betty Draper Barbie doll'.
Meanwhile Ken dolls have been used to create the series' male characters excluding Don Draper for an unknown reason.
Ken dressed as Roger Sterling, who is played by John Slattery on the show, smokes a cigarette and carries a baby described by Mr Williams as his 'bastard baby son'.
The op art featured in the character's office on the show has also been represented – it hangs behind the Ken doll.
Pete Campbell's miniature version
includes 'per-brothel visit lobster bib', a set of complementary skis
from a client and a driver's education film.
The boys: A plastic Pete Campbell, left, has also been created as well as a version of Michael Ginsberg, right
Ken has also dressed up as the series' newest character, Michael Ginsberg.
The doll is pictured beside a Sno Ball ad campaign as well as a lobster lunch.
Both details would prove familiar to fans of Mad Men.
