4 out of 5

Sizing: Feels true to size

Sleeve Length: Feels true to length

Pros: Attractive Design, Lightweight, Versatile

Best Uses: Going Out

Describe Yourself: Casual Dresser

Was this a gift?: Yes

We were looking for a jacket we could use as the Arena Jacket Katniss wore in the Hunger Games. This jacket is lightweight and perfect esp since we live in South Florida. The only con I would have is that it was caught on a door and the jacket ripped on the back in a nice little V. Would have been nice if the material was a little more durable. Covered it with silver duct tape as part of the costume design.

We used silver and orange duct tape to “recreate” the jacket Katniss was wearing in the first movie. We topped it off with a District 12 pin, the District 12 bag and a longbow.

Scarecrows in the Park

Every year, one of our local parks has a “Scarecrows in the Parks” display.   Each year, there are some fantastic displays.

As a supplement to working on our Art in the Outdoors Badge, our girls voted to create a scarecrow display.  They voted on creating a more traditional scarecrow display but also wanted it to be very girl scout themed and also support the 100th anniversary of GS Cookies.  So the girls created “S’mores to the Outdoors.”

The girls spent an afternoon stuffing burlap bags and dressing their scarecrows, and making hands.  The scarecrows all had bandanas like they wear at girl scout camp.  The girls picked themes to include such as hiking, campfires, gardening, painting, sports and camping.  They didn’t win but they had a great time creating their display.
