I Didn’t Realize that They’re German

Recently, we realized that many Afrikaner surnames are originating from Germany. Previously, we thought that most, if not all Afrikaner surnames are originating from Low Countries, especially the Netherlands. However, many surnames that considered Dutch are actually German. This because of presence of Germans during VOC period while VOC sent Germans to Cape Colony, present South Africa. The reasons of Germans existed on VOC because of economic hardship in Germany. Thus, the Germans joined VOC for better economic prospect. Because of VOC and migration, many German surnames existed in South Africa which are survived until present.

The mistaken surnames are often happened while we referred Afrikaners. This because most Afrikaners are thought as Dutch descent/heritage. The Dutch labeling is done due to the colonization of the Netherlands and VOC in South Africa for more than one century. Because of that, many Afrikaner surnames are spelled and written in Dutch form. One of the surnames which are mistaken as Dutch are Viljoen which is actually derived from French surname Villion.

For years, we always mistaken Afrikaner surnames as Dutch due to name form in Dutch language which is the basis of Afrikaans, one of 11 national languages of South Africa. This thing is also happened on Hana Planckaert idoling scene. At first, Hana and most people though that most Afrikaners are coming from Dutch descent/heritage. But, actually the Afrikaners aren’t Dutch at all. This because Afrikaners are coming from different European countries, they’re the Netherlands, Flanders (present Belgium), France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. However, most Afrikaners are coming from the Netherlands, France and Germany.

This Dutch mistake is happened on Meintjes surname which is though as the Dutch surname due to phonological traits. We’ve been mistaken Meintjes as the Dutch surnames for years. Because of this, we referred Meintjes as Fake Dutch. Then, someone read genealogy website and knew that Meintjes is the German surname, not Dutch. After that, we realized that Meintjes is coming from an old German word. Aside of that, Meintjes is originated from Münsterland, a place in Rhine-North Westphalia, Germany.

After realizing that her surname is German, Debora which based on climber Louis Meintjes ordered German folk costume. Previously, she owned a hot pink Dutch folk costume which worn at various events. She had been wearing that costume for years. Then she sold her hot pink Dutch folk costume for good. Other Afrikaners in Visioneer world did the same after the surname origin revealing. From now, she would wear German folk costume as she comes from German descent, not Dutch.

The costume is bought on Zepeto. All of the pictures are taken from Zepeto.

Winter Comeback

Hana Planckaert or me have been inactive for two months. I’m inactive for such time due to learning languages, drawing, coloring, crafting and finding new idols. During that time, I’m really spanned on arts for stress-relieving and also as the alternative activities after cycling season over. I also learning languages for idoling purpose, because I’m planning to find idols in Latin countries and Eastern European countries as they have plenty of pretty idols (male and female). The idols would come from different sectors, from team sports, pop music until underground things. They were still kept secret for security reasons.

I would comeback with darker look due to winter is coming now. Not always dark, I also appear with cuter look on pastel colors. I really miss my blog, Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog so much! And let’s check on my latest outfits!French-Folklore-by-AzaleasDolls-Hana Planckaert

Maiken is back!

After several years disappearance, Maiken came back to Hana. FYI, Maiken is the first character who engage on idoling. Maiken appeared in late 2000s when author started watching non-popular sports on TV. Maiken created for idoling purpose, mainly for winter sports, author’s favourite at that time. Maiken active during author’s middle school year and disappeared after author entered high school.

For last years, Maiken’s disappearance became the hot topic in Hana Planckaert world. Departure of Maiken had mixed feeling on author, from sadness to leave someone to open the opportunity for make another things. When author entered high school, author thought that Maiken disappeared due to chronic illness. Then speculations about Maiken’s disappearance soared for few years. Many people thought that Maiken disappeared due to pursuing academic career, but it wasn’t true. When Hana Planckaert just established her idoling career, people thought that Maiken is lost for escaping the hardship of schooling and then work as hostess at night club. Some people even thought that Maiken is raped by a senior actor who had been exist for more than 30 years. The speculations about Maiken’s disappearance aren’t true.

In summer 2017, Hana saw Maiken for the first time in five years. Maiken changed quiet much, but still doing idoling for certain things. Maiken changed several things. First, Maiken changed her hairstyle at the time visiting Hana. Previously Maiken has a chin length straight blonde hair with fringe. Now Maiken’s hairstyle has changed, but only a bit, her hair is slightly longer but still retaining bob style and the fringe is swept, in several occasions her hair is styled a bit, usually rounded blow. After hairstyle change, Maiken changed her outfits and stuffs. Previously Maiken always wore casual outfits though she wore smarter outfits for school. Now Maiken wears wide variety of outfits, from casual to experimental. During author’s middle school year, Maiken never worn makeup or jewelries, but did wear several accessories like hair clips and bangles. Now Maiken dare to wear makeup, from natural to theatrical and wears wide variety of jewelries and accessories. Next, let’s move to footwear! Previously Maiken only wear flat shoes for every occasions. Now Maiken wears wide variety of footwear, from flip-flops to stiletto heels.

Apart with appearance change, Maiken still doing idoling, especially winter sports. Maiken has been done winter sports idoling for ten years, what a long period! Maiken did winter sports idoling because they were her interests. Maiken stalks and analyzes everything on winter sports, from skiing to skating. Thought trends and tastes change over years, Maiken still like winter sports for several reasons.

Hana shocked while Maiken explains the reason(s) why she didn’t appear for years. Actually Maiken disappears for five years due to being a theatre actress which requires much time. During five years, Maiken should train and rehearse almost every day and she should perform at least once every week. Maiken is so busy on theatre, but doesn’t forget her old passion: idoling. Now Maiken is the prominent theatre actress in her town.

In the left Maiken dress up as Star Wars-inspired warrior but with more casual outfit.

In the right Maiken dress up with traditional Chinese costume with several adornments.

Messy Version of Alternative Regional Airlines Flight Attendant Uniforms

After I created 13 flight attendant uniforms of European alternative regional airlines, I created the similar uniforms, but with different concept. Now, I use the messy concept which formed because the models of the uniforms were bullied by Valentino Rossi, Dani Pedrosa and several flight attendants from the existing airlines.

The bullying occurs because of the existence of these alternative airlines themselves. Alternative airlines are mocked by people due to being bizarre thing, threat the well-known airlines and contain primordial attires, since they’re ethnic-based. In the beginning, alternative airlines are praised because of unique attire, high quality service, reasonable price and decent facilities. But, after several months, alternative airlines are mocked because people worried with fall of well-known airlines and primordial attires.

Bullying of alternative airlines teach us that such airlines are great as alternative for travelers who are unable to afford fares of well-known airlines and willing to travel with reasonable price but with high quality service and decent facilities. Alternative airlines also teach the cultural aspects from respective airlines.

The flight attendant uniforms are made by Rinmaru Games. The game is Mega Street Fashion Ver. 3 Dress Up Games.
