Le Mysterieux Carnival

It's time! The gates are open & visitors are being welcomed into Le Mysterieux Carnival. Come with me!!!

Just through the graveyard...

With her stones dark...

...and grey...

There is a path.

That will lead you to a wood where the spirits linger...

If you travel through that wood for a bit, you will find another path...

And if you walk for a bit longer...

And a bit further...

You will find a place that started out, long ago, for the living...

But has now become a place where the dead can ease into their new existence. 

But once a year, for one night in October, the living are invited to come mingle (if they dare) with those whose physical bodies no longer burden them.

So... come with me into the Haunted Wood?

Come join in the merriment this special night? For this night alone, we are promised safe passage in (and then out again)

As long as we keep our silver tickets in hand...

Look at this exotic beauty... she dances as if she's made of serpents...

And if we give the Lady Luna a visit, she'll tell our fortunes. Ask her a question... her cards never lie...

And the resident siamese twins... they're musically inclined...

The Captain is a fan of fire...

...and stilts.

Last, but not least, Ursula, the Mustachioed Lady. A great beauty... 

Time's running short... we need to be back out the gates by midnight... 

or else our tickets expire & we become a... permanent... addition to the carnival. We'd best be off!


Many thanks to our wonderful hostesses Anna & Marfi! Make sure you've stopped at their carnivals over at Frosted Petunias & Incipient Wings!

*NOTE* For any pics that aren't mine, I've linked back to where I found them. If they are yours & you'd like me to take them down, please let me know & I'll promptly remove them. No copyright infringement intended. ^-^

  7. I'm so glad I finally made it over here! What a wonderfully eerie carnival tale. I loved walking through the graveyard and down the wooded path to the carnival. Love your silver ticket and collection of performers. I think the mustachioed lady is my favorite! Thank you so much for coming and sharing :)

  10. Oh how I love to dance with the dead. What a wonderfully haunted and magical carnival. I didnt even need a date because a haunt was always willing to join me on the rides. I better skedaddle before I have a permanent date.
    I am running a little late for my party but I would love for you to visit.
