“Mad Men” may be almost done for the season, but fret not! Here’s a whole mess of “Mad Men”-inspired Barbie dolls to keep you entertained. No, Mattel hasn’t suddenly sanctioned LSD and sex out of wedlock. Artist Michael Williams of MyLifeInPlastic.com dressed each and every one of these old Barbie and Ken dolls (plus a Skipper doll for Sally!) himself. Their accessories are even funnier than the dolls themselves!

We can’t wait to convert the old Barbie Dream House into Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce and play. We just have one question … where’s Don?!  P.S. If you are a few episodes behind, spoiler alerts ahead. [My Life In Plastic]
