Junior and Brownie Girl Scouts of the 1960s!
This is the last of the Photo Op Boards of Historic GS Uniforms for the 100 Hundred, Fun Hundred event.
This third board will feature uniforms from the 1960s. The Junior Girl Scout uniform worn between 1963-1968, consisted of a green dress, a green elastic belt, a sash, socks, a beret and…a bright yellow bow tie! The Brownie uniform of the same years (1961-1968) featured a brown dress, an elastic belt, brown socks, the famous beanie hat and…a bright tangerine tie! Those were the colors of the 1960s! The Brownie Girl Scout is holding a Brownie doll, wearing the original Brownie pixie-style hat.
Here’s the mock-up of this last board. As I indicated before, the final board will feature the real vintage uniforms. Only the hair, hat, legs and arms will be painted.
To find out more about the various Girl Scouts uniforms over the century, you can go this Girl Scouts online exhibit.

Girl Scouts Mariner and Summer Camp Uniforms
We got more work done on the Photo Op Boards of Historic GS Uniforms for the 100 Hundred, Fun Hundred event.
The second board will feature uniforms from the 1940s. One of them is the first uniform of the Girl Scout Mariner (1934-1940). The Mariner program started in 1934 for older girls interested in outdoor and water based activities. The second uniform is a Summer camp uniform from 1940. The Girl Scouts who went camping had to wear this special uniform which features a shirt, a scarf and wide shorts.. The vintage uniform that will be displayed on the board belonged to Marion Mandell, one of the people involved in this project and still and active adult Girl Scouts.
Here’s the mock-up of the second board. As I indicated before, the final board will feature the real vintage uniforms. Only the hair, hat, legs and arms will be painted. That’s my job: design and painting. One more mock-up to come.
