Georgette's Haka by ThanyTony Georgette's Haka by ThanyTony
=Important to Read=

This image is the result of a comment I once got in a picture I made theorizing what Aoteaoran (New Zealnd in the Strike Witches Universe) Witches uniform would look like ( fav.me/d990aoh ), and since I portraited them with the traditional Maori painting, the "Tā moko", a commenter wondered how would the witches look doing the Maori war dance known a "Haka".

So while checking that again, I decided to make Georgette wearing that uniform and of course, doing the Haka, using the traditional painting, IT IS IMPORTANT to note thought that what Georgette is wearing is not exactly a Tā moko, it's a "Kirituhi", Maoris don't like it very much when non Maori people use their traditional tatoos, however they aproved of this description for simple facepainting to allow non Maori people to wear them, a real Tā moko is a permanent mark in your skin and it has to be earned, Aoteaoran witches wearing the Tā moko have to bleed for it and it will acompany them for the rest of their lives, Georgette is just on vacation here so, the Kirituhi is fine for her.
