Otherworld Adventure

Princess Blue Holly descended gracefully into Otherworld.

She was led by her Tangle-Heart. A moonless night was falling, as it watched over the defoliated magic trees.

Upon arrival, Blue Holly adopted the garb of the common peoples of Otherworld. She wandered tirelessly through a dark, eternal 3 a.m., searching for SheyGoth.

At first the song was far away, but PBH followed the music. AGM Shey was an incurable romantic. She was sure SheyGoth was behind the music.

As PBH drew near to SheyGoth, DracGoth intercepted.

β€œPrincess Blue, I call you out! You are not in your league here. You have few powers to do anything. SheyGoth is here of her own free will. She can only leave of her own free will. We are Otherworld lovers.”

Blue Holly faced him dead on, albeit a tad cheeky.

β€œWas it the red hair that tipped you off? Look, I just want to talk to SheyGoth!”

SheyGoth appeared behind her Goth lover.β€œPrincess Blue, I have no desire to talk with you!”

PBH replied, β€œthen at least speak with Rene. You owe her that much. She made you, and all of the Art Gowns Models international celebrities.”

Driven by her love for all her AGM sisters, SheyGoth conceded. Blue Holly chose Nowhere & Nothing World, for the meeting. SheyGoth slipped on a simple gown, thereby becoming AGM Shey for the occasion.

A hologram of Rene Rosso appeared. “Come home dear Shey!”

β€œRemember the gowns, the colours, the joys of the catwalk? Remember Holly, Dale, Marina & Gigi? Remember how all the AGMs help each other? They wait for you! Rebecca Budd says she can’t do another show without you!”

AGM Shey’s memories filled the air around her. Soon her true colourΒ  came back.

AGM Shey looked at RR, and asked,”Will you sing “Once I Was Loved”, by Melody Gardot?”

DracGoth was frantic.Β β€œSheyGoth, don’t leave me! I love you! I need you! We are Otherworld lovers!”

β€œSorry, Dahling! As much as I love our loving, there is no colour, no daytime, no any other time but 3 a.m. here. The Girlfriends and Gowns are calling. Dahling, you can come up and see me any night! I’ll wait in the dark for you.”

With that, SheyGoth slowly faded into a golden glow. The golden glow was cast upon the leafless magic trees.

Soon AGM Shey’s tree and all other magic trees were green again.

One-eye shed a tear for love.

    What a wonderful adventure. Kudos to PBH for rescuing SheyGoth from the doldrums of a persistence of 3am.

    1. I held my breath, Tim, because there was dark magic at work. But PBH is light and colour – I need not have ever worried. Light will always come through….

      1. YES… yes.. he is Goth cute! Sigh! DracGoth needs to realize looks are not all that matters. True, he is also charming.
        Uch… I suppose he will linger in SheyGoth’s heart.

              1. Yes, but I heard he can be crusty in the daylight! πŸ·πŸ·πŸ·πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ·πŸ·πŸ·

              2. True! SnapChat supers!
                Otherwise, we can all be in Shey’s bedroom at 3 am. Talk about a selfies photo fest!
                Drac will be dizzy from all the attention. I wonder if it will go to his head?

              1. Timothy Price

                It’s obvious you dom’t mess with the AGMs. DracGoth can go suck a bloody 3am egg!

              1. It’s 2 am.. in Shey’s world. Let’s hope she gets through to the morn. Then she can weigh in!
                I’m all for DracGoth….OUT!
                (Thou art more merciful than I)

              2. Lol! well, if he just reclines in the shade he won’t melt.
                SEE! He is already sucking us into his web of… webbing!

              3. True!
                He’s already “made worm’s meat out of me”
                Sorry,I couldn’t help quoting Shakespeare here. (Mercutio said that)There is something very Shakespearean about him.

              4. Lady MacBeth would be proud!

                On another note, have you seen Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 Romeo & Juliette?
                There will never be another like it!

                On another note… Have you seen Zeferelli’s

              5. True!
                Still, I expect it from her. She is the STAR!!!!
                Hello Drac? Hear that? RR is the star!
                I need a joint! OH it’s 100% legal in Canada.
                We keep running out of vaccine, but mj flows like a river! Something is askew!

              6. RR is such a Diva, we are going to have it out! I want those Hermes! Ah, the vaccine, let it flow into the arms of everyone! Here, here’s a MJ. We will find out what is askeW!

  2. What a perfect way to close my day, Dahling. Just perfect way!
    PBH was wise to listen to the AGMs!!!! πŸ˜‰
    I love your drawings, the story, PBH and SheyGoth, Tim’s photos, DracGoth…
    All perfect!
    Love & many hugs
    from Hera too who was ready to jump in to save PBH!!!

        1. Yikes… I know I wrote this, but NO WAY I’m going to Otherworld at 3 am., or anytime.
          The AGMs need to dazzle the world with a new runway show. (OMG I heard DracGoth is attending all shows!)

              1. NOOOO!!!!
                He will infiltrate the ranks!
                For crying out loud, we have collections on the runway to deliver.
                OMG… he’s already infiltrating!

              2. It’s okay! We’re onto him!
                Imagine him copying PBH’s one eye patch. Has he no dingnity….dignitty… dinngitty.. ditginitty.. Uch! You know what I mean!

              3. Poor? I think not!I heard he’s worth a cool 10 mil!
                He can buy all the girl talk he wants, but the AGMs are not sell-outs!!!!

    1. OH MY! Hera would have had to become an Otherworld Puppy!
      Hmm, boy she sure would be cute! I bet everyone in Otherworld would love her. I hear they have a lot of sponges there, so it could have worked out!
      Anyway, PBH, RR, the AGMs & Rebecca Budd saved the day.
      Dahling, stay safe, and kiss Hera for me!

      1. A ha ha…. yes, I can picture that!!!!
        They sure did save the day!
        I love these stories and your creations!
        Happy Wednesday, my sweet friend.
        You too, stay safe and… get the sponges out,
        Here comes Hera!

            1. LOL!
              Holly had a fab idea that DracGoth could be Boogapony’s Roadie! Drive all night, sleep all day! I can’t stop laughing! And they have the emojis for it!!!!!

              1. A ha ha ha haaaaa…… what an idea!!!!!!!!!
                [and emojis!!!!!]

    1. TOF, you would look spectacular in an eyepatch!
      You’d also look fab in a cabbage patch, strawberry patch or a patch of blue.
      I guess you’re just a patchy kinda guy! xo

      1. You know what, I believe Princess Blue Holly’s eyepatch makes for the finest Bond gal ever. Talking of a β€˜patch’ β€˜twas just the other day I very nearly had one…an ear patch. George sent me Ms Vladivostok the consummate hair dresser, with the appealing husky voice. While chatting about this and that, out came her cut throat knife thrusted toward my ear. Leaning ever closer I determined I was about to either have said throat cut or would suffocate within her ample cleavage or both. While Shirl, looking on, howled with laughter like a vampire, I took the view that if I had to die, there were worse ways to go! Regards, TOF

  3. I loved the opening lines, β€œPrincess Blue Holly descended gracefully into Otherworld.” The adventure began. I confess my anxiety was high because I knew that PBH had chosen a dangerous journey to save her beautiful friend, SheyGoth. The dark, eternal 3 a.m. is not for the faint of heart. β€œCome home dear Shey” brought goosebumps. As the Art Director, I knew that I could never do another show without AGM Shey. Would PBH come through the darkness? I wondered. Yes she could, with her colour light and compassion, she brought back AGM Shey’s memories. I felt a little sadness for DracGoth, but yet again, the plot twisted into a joyful β€œYou can come and see me any night!” Resa – you have the best adventures.

    1. Rebecca,
      So happy you like this tale of love, darkness, light and heroism.
      Anyway, how could RB do a show with only 4 AGMs?

      There is some concern about the return of DracGoth, beyond a midnight romp with AGM Shey! However, Holly had the idea to make him Boogapony’s roadie. You know, drive all night, sleep all day! That should keep him busy!

  4. Shivers, it was dark and cold and otherworldly deep in the Goth World but with the help of awesome Resa and her AGM’s and Rebecca and Timothy’s tangle tree, Shey Goth has found the light and spreads her beauty throughout the Art Gown World once again. Such gorgeous artwork, Resa, astounding! Drac is amazingly gruesome and handsome all at the same time ( I think I have been affected by Goth World…) no wonder Shey was reluctant to abandon him. Thank you dear one, you have entertained and delighted us once again. You are so amazingly gifted and beautiful too. Love you to pieces, meeces! xoxoxoxoxoxo

  5. Reblogged this on House of Heart and commented:

    It is dark and cold and otherworldly deep in Goth World. With the help of multi-gifted Resa and her AGM’s , will Shey Goth return to the light and once again spread beauty throughout the Art Gown World?
    Find out at the original … more beauty and wonderful music can be found there.

              1. YES! There’s the spirit!
                High Fashion and movie endorsements. That’s where the AGMs should go.
                As a matter of fact, the AGMs are already a Brand, and ready for success!
                Let DracGoth get his own Brand!

              2. Boxes? You mean like…Girl Scout cookies?
                Would you eat a Drac Brownie?
                What are they made of? Are they vegan? If they’re vegan, that could be a seller!

    1. Your help my darling was beyond words. This morning having caught up with my blog I can come by and thank you properly. for your bravery. of course I can’t imagine what I saw in HIM ….. x

      1. It was my pleasure to gracefully descend in hopes of finding you in time. Drac has a rather Rhett Butler sweep one off there feet air about him so the attraction is perfectly understandable . Welcome back to AGM world!

        1. Sheers to you! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷
          Or do I mean Cheerios!
          Hic…um Chars!
          Ley me get back to you after 5! I’ll be able to have some 🍷🍷🍷 then, and my mind will strayten out!

  6. Oh my goodness, Resa! This is fab. I an undersand Shey’s attraction to DracGoth – he is dreamy (your winner drawing is outstanding). Thankfully the 3 am dark is too much so. That PBH was able to remind her of the beautiful colours up above (not that we are surprised, really! If needed, all the AGM models would have gone down to lend a hand).
    Fabulous, dear Resa!

  7. Resa….. I am speechless with what you’ve done here. I do love the princess in that disguise. How could i ever be so silly as to wander off like this and want to miss the show? Well, here I am recovered and able to say so….
    Thank you for the wonderful things you say. You are always too kind. xxxxxxxxxx

    1. Sex….ERM I mean LOVE can have that effect on us humans and Goths.
      Well, no worries, you’re back in time for the next show! Fittings begin next week. Bring your heels for hemming lengths. New heels will be needed for the show!
      We have lots of fun! I say kind things, because you are kind, too! You are welcome!

    1. Thank you Dahling Marina! At least SheyGoth is safe. I don’t see what DracGoth has to complain about? He can still visit AGM Shey in the dark of night… 3 am!

  8. I was pretty scared when DracGoth showed up, but I knew Princess Blue Holly would save the day!! Wunnaful gowns, I can’t find the nouns, such beautiful dresses, oh how they impresses!! 😊

  9. Look at these amazing drawings, photos, and ladies ~ What’s not to like?! I am thinking now about dresses and sewing and all sorts of crafty stuff!!

    1. You’re going to have fun! Let me know if you need any tips. As you foray into building with fabric & thread, not all will go smoothly. I’ll be glad to help. You have my mail. Perhaps we can save up questions and answers, and the could be a post!

  10. You did it again…that’s no surprise, of course, since you’re fabulous. That was so much fun and your pictures of Drac are great. Holly looks amazing, and so do the gowns on your side-bar. Another wonderful post, Resa. Great fun and wonderful artwork.

  11. Dear Resa this new series is really beautiful, the line is still as dynamic and the colors capture and direct the look. I see these works as a reflection of your talent and quite frankly Picasso seems far away and useless.
    It’s yours.
