This is only my third LEA Arts Festival "peek" but I'm lucky to have survived! 

Upon arrival Danse Macabre appears to be a gothic art gallery. All the paintings on the walls have, as the name implies, macabre subject matter. A sign informs me that the exhibit is inspired by an ancient art genre that depicts myths and stories. 

Spooky SL art and photography? Cool! I walk innocently through the archway, further into the gallery's gloomy interior ...

Yup, there sure were freaky pictures in this gallery
What I'd thought was going to be a slightly scary photo exhibition soon took a major turn for the worse. The more pictures I saw on the walls and the further I wandered into the gallery, the more creepy, horrifying, monstrous scenes I was forced to pass through. My poor little avi was on her own and she was soooo frightened! (And she's not usually a wimp.)

No matter how hard I scrub I can't get these damned stains out!
Trying to be brave, I continued through archways, haunted forests and caves ... ducking flying fruit, wild wolves, ghosties and beasties of all shapes and sizes. I fell long distances (ooomph!), I witnessed evil incarnate and I got lost in the darkness .... until ...

I really didn't fit in. I didn't get their Lucifer jokes.
... until .... well that would be giving the whole creepy adventure away, wouldn't it? Find out what happens by visiting Danse Macabre yourself, if you are brave enough!
