Comment: At least this teen girl in very long pigtails but only of parts of her hair. I don’t remember her name. Pic from ep. 4. I think also touching her own pigtails. Probably wearing jeans?

Also on my shiny shorts blog, (boys, mainly older teens) rating 6 (updates soon).

I rarely watch my DVD set. The boys are too old, except for ep. 1. Mainly of interest of teen star Tommi Ohrner.

Comment: One young, blonde girl with very long pigtails. Around 1m. Also wet and shirtless. I think also a darkhaired woman or older girl at least with a long shoulder braid. Maybe some more supporting actresses.

Quite interesting movie. But pigtails are thick.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: At least Sylvia Wolff as Rapunzel in extremely long, blonde pigtails.

Another rope-entry. One other Rapunzel movie coming soon.

There are few good live action versions. Fairy Tales are a good source for pigtails.

Rating 4 for now. I prefer younger actresses. English title: Rapunzel or the Magic of Tears.

Comment: I think this must be 15 or 16 yo Lisa-Marie Koroll in long, red pigtails, obviously a wig and a Western hat. Also riding. Maybe some more girls. Lots of supporting actors (in different costumes at the end). Pic 1 from the Outtakes.

Has been aired on Easter. Unfortunatley I almost missed it completetly.

Maybe much better than thought. Usually I don’t like this kind of modern girl movies.

I have to recheck the complete movie (for all my blogs). There’s a woman (and girl) in bib overalls (other blog rating 3 for now), boys in shiny shorts (rating 5, unknown amount, few scenes ?), nice Western clothes (f/m, rating 6) and some kids (probably girls) wearing sailor dresses (manga costumes) and obviously a teen boy/young man in Lederhosen (not yet on my Lederhosen blog).

For this wig, rating 5-6 for now only. On my other blogs titled as “Bibi&Tina: voll verhext”, the previous IMDb title.

Pigtail occurence: low *
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: 12 or 13 yo Loredana in long pigtails (pic 1+2) and older sister (3rd youngest daughter) Sarah-Jane in even longer pigtails in yesterday’s episode 5 (s2e1). Sarah-Jane also playing with the tip of the pigtails, tossing one back. Pigtails of both mainly on the front. Seems to be a modern way of plaiting and almost looking like the girls at Cologne carnival. Pigtails are woven and on the rear of the heads instead of the sides.

This is a spin-off and the girls are rarely shown in pigtails, also in the main series “Die Wollnys”, maybe more often and more girls in earlier episodes. They usually have a bun or a shoulder braid. Also the granddaughter toddler “Mucki” at least in unbraided pigtails.

Also on my bib overalls blog rating 5 and my bedroom blog rating 3.

Unusual food and funny series and family. But obviously all or most plots are written for them and so it’s not the real life.

I like long pigtails, but Loredana is shy of often looking unhappy and Sarah-Jane is too chubby.

Rating 6-7 for the pigtails.

Comment: Most notably French Yeardley Smith in very long, dark blonde pigtails (and also open hair) And very short hair, cutting her hair off but not as pigtails. Also other women and or (teen) girls. At least Helen Slater in a blonde shoulder braid and open hair with one braided part, also wet.

Interesting movie. I like the 80s.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7 (including women).

Usually I like long pigtails but somehow not this lady. Pigtails are also thick.

So rating 4-5 only. Needs to be rechecked for overalls scenes and younger girls.

Info: Cologne Carnival

kinderstunk-und-ziegenbart-2008

At the carnival, especially in Cologne, there are very often women, (teen) girls and some men (Dreigestirn: Jungfrau, traditionally played by men, except the kids, Kinderdreigestirn there are real girls) wearing very long pigtails. Either dark or blonde. Not sure about boys. Some pigtails might be wigs, but most are probably real pigtails.

There are different characters. First, Tanzmariechen, then Jungfrau, Bärbelchen (blonde) and maybe some more. And of course the costumes like Pippi Longstocking.

Currently, I don’t have better pics, so I use this pic from my overalls blog (Kinderstunk und Ziegenbart 2008), Kinderstunksitzung (rating 4).

Tanzmariechen usually dancing and doing acrobatics and the pigtails often flipping or hanging upside down.

Update: This year I watched carefully to the pigtails. Most (except for the wigs) pigtails are at the back of the head instead of the sides. I wonder if they are somehow attached with pins, needles or braces or just plaited. Maybe it’s a rather modern way of plaiting. And sometimes one pigtail is at the front (shoulder) and the other on the back. Not sure if this is on purpose or by coincidence. Probably rather a coincidence, at least when dancing.

Comment: At least a girl, teen girl and woman in dark pigtails. I first found the teen girl in very long pigtails and blue shorts in s1e5. Pic 2 showing a young girl in s1e23. Pic 3 showing a woman in s2e6. Probably some more actresses.

I haven’t checked all episodes, yet. But this is a great series. Some episodes showing ranch and Rodeo settings. I also have to check the 1958 movie and the 1963 series. Officially on DVD only seasons 1-2.

Also (soon) on all my other blogs (except sailor suits), rating mostly 8-9.

Rating 8-9 for now. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Comment: One unknown girl in very long (till the butt) dark pigtails.

I have briefly checked this movie and haven’t found any scene showing her face frontal or close-up. (Brief side view in this scene, around in the middle of the movie). In the classroom, mainly the left half of the kids is shown. There are also some scenes outside, not sure if with her.

For the character Pierino, I prefer Alvaro Vitali and even bought one movie (bib overalls blog rating 7). I have to check that and other movies for pigtails. Only some are set in schools.

Rating 9 for now. I like long pigtails. New tag: very long (for at least hip length).

Comment: One girl in a sailor dress and very long, thick pigtails. I don’t remember her name, but it’s the friend of the main character Ludwig, played by Hansi aka Hans Kraus.

Very good movie. Sailor suit blog rating 10, my first entry there.

At school (unfortunately) only boys. So very few scenes of girls or women.

For more infos see my other blogs. Part of the Lausbuben trilogy. Also on my bedroom blog.

Rating 4 for her.

In movie #1 there’s an older blonde girl in long pigtails, rating 6
