The Scarlett Hotel – Chapter 1 – Another Fine Mess

The Scarlett Hotel – Chapter 1

Another Fine Mess

Griselda sighed heavily as she looked in to the empty bar of the Scarlett Hotel. Another day, another mess to clean up. This was her life now: or rather, her afterlife.
If she had known back in 1922 what a vacation at the Scarlett Hotel would cost her, Griselda would’ve stayed in the stifling heat of the city. She never would have accepted the position as a companion to a maidenly aunt. And never met … him. Her feet shuffle across the hard wood floor of the hotel’s bar as Griselda carries the cleaning supplies deeper into the room. Exhausted, she drops everything to her feet and slumps down on top of a large, wrapped lump lying on the floor. There is nothing she can do until they are moved out of her way. Last night was one hell of a party. He was in rare form. Anton is quite the charmer, especially back in the Summer of 1922. To a young, innocent girl like Griselda, the worldly aristocrat could do no wrong. She fell hopelessly in love with the tall, dark Duke the moment she espied him in the lobby of the Scarlett Hotel. Her heart stopped when her Aunt Matilda introduced them and he kissed her hand. Griselda nearly fainted when he asked her to dine with him that very night.

Their days were filled with long walks in the dense gardens, lazy umbrella-covered boat rides on the lake or picnics beneath the shade of weeping willows. Anton spun mesmerizing stories of his world travels, read poetry from well-worn first editions and kissed her breathless.
Even in the hot July days, Anton always dressed in a fashionable suit, gloves, hat and sunglasses. At first Griselda associated this with his European upbringing, but Anton assured her it was simply sensitivity to the sun. His pale skin, dark hair and hypnotic eyes just made him all that more handsome. Griselda was wined and dined on champagne and elegant cuisine each night and then danced until dawn. Although Griselda was there to work, Aunt Matilda was ecstatic over Anton’s fascination with her niece. If anything, Aunt Matilda seemed almost relieved.
If Griselda hadn’t been so blinded by Anton’s charisma and attention, she would have remembered Aunt Matilda was not a nice person. Griselda was not her aunt’s first paid traveling companion. There was a long list and they never remained passed one trip and were never heard from again. The family said they all ran away since Aunt Matilda was such a vile person.
On a starry night, beneath a full moon, when Anton asked her to spend the rest of her life with him, Griselda thought she died and gone to heaven. Heaven it was not. She managed to croak out a barely audible acceptance before Anton gathered her in his arms and kissed her long and hard. The kiss left her dizzy and flushed as he peppered soft kisses on her face, along her jaw and down her neck.

And then … Unconsciously, Griselda touched the two puncture marks on her neck and heaved another heavy sigh. Damn Aunt Matilda for selling her off to a Vampire for wealth and immortality. Damn Anton for taking an innocent girl’s dreams and turning them into nightmares. And damn herself for thinking such a sophisticated man like Anton could ever love a frumpy girl like Griselda.
Anton did confess after the deed was done that he had not meant to turn her into a creature of the night. He did truly care for her; as much as a Vampire could care for anyone. She was merely payment for a bargain her aunt made with him decades ago.
Now, Griselda was stuck here in this haunted hell of a hotel and relegated to maid status for all eternity. She rose slowly to her feet as the Zombie bellboys entered the deserted hotel bar and dragged out the bodies that were the unwitting ‘party favors’ for Anton’s guests the night before.
My job is to clean up the aftermath. Griselda cursed at the Zombies as their carelessness left a trail of blood in their wake. With a grunt, Griselda dropped a soaking wet mop on the wooden floor and began the backbreaking job of scrubbing it clean.
Another fine mess.

You’ve kept a little secret
Deep in your soul for all those years
But I can see into your soul

You think it’s a bad, bad secret
But it’s not that bad, my dear
It’s not that bad, my dear

I also hide a secret deep in my soul
And it’s a sad, sad feeling
But I can’t tell the truth to anyone

From a dear friend of mine I got that stunning “Kuroi Namida” dress – I really fell in love with that, thank you so much Shena. Now those of you who know me will ask if I am alright as I usually never like dresses too much, but this dress is a very special one. It has a wonderful corset and a short skirt which is covered by a long non symmetric second skirt part which goes down on the outside of the left leg. You have the choice of a full black version, or a black dress with colored accents like the one I am wearing today in red, at the actual round of NEO Japan. There I found that super-cool tattoo from Vegas Tattoo called “Akkorokamui” as well. I will have another post showcasing the neck part more in one of my nest posts, but it matched so amazing with the open cleavage part of the dress and the detail you can have on your face with the tattoo just finished the style in such a cool way ;). You get 3 different version of the tattoo if u decide to purchase it, where you have the choice of how much of the tattoo you would like to wear.

The holidays I desired so much seem to slowly do their thing as I am full of new ideas again and already think about my next post while I write this one, plus I found some more cool stuff on the NEO Japan event as well, which I want to showcase before the event is over *giggles*

Surrender?

TUNES

Even though I know what I’m looking for
She’s got a brick wall behind her door
I’d travel time and confess to her
But I’m afraid she’d shoot the messenger

Every word, every thought, every sound
Every touch, every smile, every frown
All the pain we’ve endured until now
All the hope that I lost, you have found

Surrender

I am still fooling around with the new “Ceylon 3.0” head from LeLUTKA. I wanted to try the classic button on the HUD to see what the head looks like if I choose that genius option, plus I wanted to see how my face mods (which are all not yet EvoX compatible) look on that face and what they to do it 😉

For my set I used some of the new group gifts, which DRD offer for their new store opening. You won’t believe it but every section has its own group gift!So you can get 5 at once at the moment!!! What is even more cool.. they packed some of their older designs into a huge container (you can find that at the right side of the building at the landing spot) calling it “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”. “Some” might be a little underestimated as you can find like 700+ items in there and DRD will keep adding stuff. Now the unbelievable… it only costs 4000L$ and you will get a lifetime free update! So the price might grow up over the time, but if you get it now… you get all the coming goodies for free!

Now you might want to know where that kick-ass cool outfit comes from… it is a mix and match of 2 AsteroidBox designs. The shirt you will find at the actual round of Anthem while the shorts should be at the main store by now.

I still see so many cool things in that “Holy shit wtfbbq Retro Box”… I should get back to my platform and build some more scenes with them for new pictures 😉

[- David, Allegiant, 2016 -]

Germany seems to be weird sometimes, especially our government. Now that we have our Covid numbers going down constantly, even with the new virus variations… they can’t wait until the numbers are as low as the experts ask for – no we have to break open schools and kindergartens as fast as we can. I mea i see the problems, do not get me wrong, but what does it help if we are back to sky high numbers in the next 3 weeks and then have to lock down everything again?!? Can we not just wait like 2 weeks more until the numbers are low enough before we plan things like that? Especially as it was clear, that the numbers dropped really fast when the schools finally were closed again? Would it not make sense to put some effort into the internet and into getting the needed hardware to the kids who are not having any still? The online platform for Bavarian schools (Mebis) looks and acts like they would have been made in the Stone Age some when and instead of working on it it feels like they counted on the fact that the summer will kill the virus and it is gone after that. They had oe year now to fix things and besides the fact they allowed Microsoft Teams, nothing really has changed – and that wasn’t the work of our government *facepalms* It seems more important to hold on exams and schedules instead of taking care of our kids and their health. We all know now, that the kids do not get symptoms but they can carry the virus around secretly and infect all their family. I just don’t understand all those rules and requirements anymore. WE can have the kids in school, shoulder on shoulder, but we cannot have theaters and cinemas open who definitely have way better hygiene management for infection control, than any school has – at our school we do not even have warm water for the kids to wash their hands as requested. But sure, lets open the schools again for 3 or 4 weeks to again close down the whole country as the new virus variations push the numbers up again – If they keep acting like that and with the not working vaccine concept (we simply do not have enough yet and some do not have a 100% protection – not to mention there is not even one yet for kids under 16 years, which is allowed officially) we will go back and forth until summer 2022 🙁

Anyways, lets take a look on todays pictures and designs 😉

Again I am in a cyberpunk mood – no wonder we just had the Mainframe event! I am super sorry for posting this so late but lately my RL is completely upside down. My mom got a new knee, and I still have to take care of her, cook, clean and walk her dog at least 2 times a day while I try to shuffle my work around as much as I can. Sometimes I am just dead in the evening when I am done with all my day work and I instantly fall asleep on the couch even if I made me some coffee to stay awake for some SL work.

But I still love making pictures and I try my best to not come too much behind with my blogging schedule 😉

Like I said sadly the Mainframe event is already over, but many of the releases I am wearing were made for that and now should have found their ways to the designers main stores I suppose.

I lurk in the shadows
Moonlight touching the ground
I creep in the bushes
Await for you my love
My pale skin feels so cold
I need your warmth beside me
I feel your beating heart
You’re swept into my arms
Oh how I love this night
And the many nights to come
For a thousand lifetimes
I’ll make you my own
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, the fallen angel
I am immortal, the living legend
One thousand years gone, hell’s incarnation

Voices in my Head

They come creeping when it’s dark
(I see them)
Picking all my thoughts apart
(Once again)
So how am I supposed to sleep
When all I hear are the whispers in my ear?
Please turn down the voices in my head
Going on and on again
With that same old song and dance
Please turn down the noise inside my head
‘Cause I’m tryna go to bed

It was time for some new freaky pictures with all the cool new releases from CerberusXing and L’Emporio&PL these days :p
Maybe it is the craziness of these days in the real world, or it is the Christmas time which I am not so much into it, or it is just the general fun I do have with dark posts and pictures… but I really had fun doing those.
The inspiration to this post gave me the “Kick It” finger bandages from L’Emporio&PL. They look so detailed and move so perfectly with your bento animations. I love that you can have a clean and a bloody version. As well I owed you a peek on those cool toe claws, which are included in the “Damned Claws” set as well made by L’Emporio&PL (you can find them on the last picture of this post).
The super cool earrings that I decided to put on my Kanji Ears from Eclipse Art Studio are made by L’Emporio&PL for the Man Cave Event this month. You get a wide range of 6 different designed earrings for each ear, plus a HUD where you can change the metal color between 6 different ones. Furthermore you can turn on and off the full bright mode, choose the glow intensity and resize your earrings with the HUD.
Today I read, that they found a mutation of the Covid virus in England and it already spread to other countries as well. I mean we all did know it was only about time before the first mutations would come, but it still was like a little shock. Even if the government tries to calm down the people by saying the vaccine still will work even for the mutation, who knows what the next step will be. I just hop you all are able to stay safe and healthy and survive this crazy year, ane even if the virus will reach with its long arm into 2021, I still hope we can stop the raising numbers and make them go down again.
Happy and hopefully safe Holidays!

Steampunk Revolution

TUNES

We’ve got a steampunk revolution
We’re tired of all your so-called evolution
We’ve darted back to 1886
Don’t ask us why; that’s how we get our kicks

Our underworld isn’t filled with fear
Just brass and copper, leather scrap, and rusty gear
You can keep your hip-hop techno-pop-rock schleppin-dub
I’m on my way to a coal-powered underground vintage pub

Your subculture shops at the mall
We build ours with blowtorch, needle, thread, and leather awl
With our antique clock parts we’ve taken all arts, fine art to fashion
And now we’re spreading worldwide to circle the globe with a furious passion

We’ve got a steampunk revolution
We’re tired of all your so-called evolution
We’ve darted back to 1886
Don’t ask us why; that’s how we get our kicks

Out of my Head!!!

TUNES

I cannot breathe through toxic skies
You pollute me with your lies
Thought I died ‘long with my sense of time
And I’m not alright feel trapped in my mind
I can’t escape even if I tried
Too little too late too weak and too kind
My heart is on fire and I’m burnin’ alive
So I guess I’m not fine still trapped in my mind

[Adam Oh]

Sometimes you have so many things on your mind that give you more headaches than good that you would like to tear them out… do you know that feeling? At the moment I exactly feel like that. There is so much things in my head and some anxiety what the future will bring. Even in SL I had some things happen that really did trow me down. In the end SL isn’t in any ways different that RL even if you try to stay away from drama and negative things… people who want to drag you down, will have their stage to do so.

Anyways – that mood I was in, paired with the cool “Eye Spike” and the super cool “Broken Eyes from Madame Noir, todays  pictures came to life 😉 Now that I wrote about it and made those pictures I already feel better! I hope you had a wonderful day without any trolls or “brain refugees” trying to make it a bad one. I will now move on to some more pictures for my next post!

Eastern Asian Adventure! – NEWS from LeLUTKA

And again I have a wonderful new release from LeLUTKA! This time, LeLUTKA gives more attention to their East Asian customers with the new “Ryn 2.0” Evolution head (for the males there is a pendant named “Kane”)

The head has a very young look and so I wanted to find something what would work with such a look and came across the Kawaii genre. It was against my ethnics to put her in lingerie or something too sexy as she has more of a teen or young women look to me with this kind of shape and skin. Certainly I had to use the amazing piercings again that come with the head 😉 Ryn certainly has all the amazing features of the 2.0 Evolution line as well!

It amazes me how LeLUTKa has the skills and passion, to make such different heads for all the ethnics around the world. We had the amazing wonderful African or African-American head with Nuri, we had all kind of European, American heads with Lake, Erin, Nova and now we get the Asian look as well with Ryn. You still can twist your shape and have even all the subcultures of the Asian ethnic with this head, I just wanted to blog it as pure as possible with my first post – I only made the nose a tiny wee bit smaller as it came. I am sure that won’t be my last post as I enjoyed my little journey into the Kawaii look and there is so many more genres you can do with that look 😉

So pop over to the LeLUTKA main store and try out the new – and maybe even all the other ones, too – heads!
