It's time for more vintage photos from the Disneyland Wardrobe Department!
All of today's outfits were worn by Disneyland "hostesses". I assume that a hostess would escort important Disneyland guests throughout the park. Sort of like the Ambassadors, only they didn't travel as much. Please let me know if I am mistaken!
This first costume is from April 1966. Our hostess looks very demure, and somehow reminiscent of Jackie Kennedy (in spite of it being 1966). All she needs is a pillbox hat. The purse contained nunchuks, because you just never know.
Now we've moved to June, 1969. This outfit seems to anticipate the red, white, and blue bicentennial craze of the mid-70's. But you don't have to salute her unless you want to. Her purse was full of buckshot. Wham!
Look at how different this particular costume is, even though it is the winter outfit for 1969. Completely different from the one worn just months before. The black gloves are an interesting touch. In her purse? Delicious caramels.
Thanks as always to Huck for these wonderful images!
