A Joan Holloway costume, or a Joan Harris costume, is a great costume idea for anyone who is a fan of the TV series Mad Me. It is as simple yet fun and sexy cosplay to do and is also relatively cheap to create.
Joan Holloway Costume – Mad Men
Mad Men, being set in the 1960’s, means all the characters obviously dress in 1960’s style clothing. Joan Holloway is no exception usually seen wearing a smart sixties style dress with stockings and high heels. Here is a complete list of everything you will need to make your own Joan Holloway costume.
Joan Holloway Dress
|In Mad Men Joan Holloway is often wearing formal and 60’s style dresses and skirts.
For your Joan Holloway costume we would recommend wearing a wiggle dress which hangs just above the knee and highlights a woman’s feminine curves.
Joan Holloway High Heels
|Working in an office in the 60’s it is hardly a surprise that Joan Holloway is nearly always seen wearing high heels.
We would suggest keeping it simple and wearing a pair of black high heels which are court shoes for your Joan Holloway costume.
Joan Holloway Stockings
|There are several scenes in Mad Men wear Joan Holloway lifts of her skirt or dress to reveal her legs and the fact that she is wearing stockings.
For your Joan Holloway costume wear a pair of skin color or tan stockings. You could also wear pantyhose if you prefer.
Joan Holloway Necklace
|Your Joan Holloway costume must include some very 60’s style jewellery.
Joan Holloway is often seen in Mad Men wearing a necklace that appears to have a pen like object on its chain. This style necklace would be ideal for a Joan Holloway costume.
Joan Holloway Earrings
|Again, keeping with the style and fashion of the 1960’s, Joan Holloway is often seen wearing earrings.
The earrings that we would suggest wearing for your Joan Holloway costume should be gold and not to big but not to small.
Joan Holloway Brooch
|One final touch for your Joan Holloway costume should be a brooch like the character is often seen wearing on her dress of jacket.
We would recommend wearing a gold brooch with a sixties style to it.
Joan Holloway Hair – Joan Holloway Wig
|The Joan Holloway character, played by Christina Hendricks, is a natural redhead.
If you happen to be a redhead then simply style you hair like hers.
If not then you can buy and wear a redhead 60’s style wig for this part of your Joan Holloway costume.
