Comment: Some more girls in ep 6 (season 1). Two older girls, one blonde, the other darkhaired in the audience but most notable a younger girl in dark pigtails (medium length). I don’t know her name. Nice simple braids, also side view.

I’m still rechecking season 1.

This episode 6 is also one of the best showing the older brother working in bib overalls (other blog, rating 7).

For the pigtails rating 6-7. Update: I forgot one older teen girl or young woman in short thick dark pigtails at the end of this episode. (Rating ~3).

Main entry here, school scene, rating 5

Comment: At least this girl, I think Lilli in thin pigtails in upcoming season 2 starting on Monday (ep 9). Also others at least in long (rasta) braids.

Also another girl in bib overalls or shortalls (other blog, currently rating 3).

I don’t like at all these thin pigtails. She looks better in regular hair.

Rating 3 for now only.

Comment: 16 or 17 yo Lilly von Klitzing (“Familie Dr. Kleist”, 2016) as 14 yo Ruth in medium blonde, long, simple braided pigtails, worn on her front.

Has been aired yesterday. Available on the mediathek.

Very interesting. Also starring redhaired Marleen Lohnse (but not in pigtails).

Her hair appears a bit darker here but is usually light blonde. There’s also a pic of her in an overalls-like jeans dress or similar.

Rating 6-7.

Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Pigtail occurence: often ?
Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: As announced this latest version of Anne of Green Gables starring Amybeth McNulty. Maybe also other teen girls or women in pigtails, but I haven’t seen anyone, yet. Anne often wearing a flat hat. Nice costumes, also of the boys. Jerry (Aymeric Jett Montaz) probably also wore bib overalls in the barn next to an leather apron.

It also includes the famous pigtail pulling scene in ep 3 (pic 2). Better pic and GIF here

The actress is a bit older, around 16 in season 1. Anne in the novels is 11 yo. But in most movies she’s older as well. But I don’t like much this actress.

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I have to recheck this later. Also for my other blogs. Earlier versions collected here


Update: Anne of Green Gables (2016)


As announced, some more pics of this nice movie which has been aired at Christmas.

There are 2 girls being pulled at their pigtails. Also one blonde. And another angle of the redhaired Anne (rear view pulling, see main entry).

I think also some few more girls at school in pigtails or braids. Also in sailor dresses.

The 2017 movie starring Amybeth McNulty also coming soon.

Comment: Some few girls in pigtails including this girl with blonde looped ones, I think 13 yo Charlotte Lorenzen. Also some few others at school and elsewhere including blonde buns (young girl), short dark and regular pigtails. And the sister of the older Hans, set around 8 years later in the 2nd half of the movie. But rather few scenes.

Also on my sailor suit blog (boy, rating 3) and soon on my bedroom blog, rating ~4.

Quite interesting movie, fresh and handsome kids, but only in the first half.

Could be better. I don’t like much looped pigtails.

Rating 3-4 only.

Update of Anne of Green Gables (2016) coming next (aired on Christmas).
