Little Red Riding Hood couldn’t remember when she had been called “little” for the last time. Actually, she couldn’t remember when she had been riding for the last time, either. She was a big girl now, and she preferred four-wheelers to horses. What remained, though, was the red hood. Wolves were colour blind, luckily, and their blood didn’t stand out against the thick burgundy fabric. Little Red Riding Hood - Red Hood, or just Reddie, for her friends - caressed the wolf tails attached to the hem of her cloak. It was a wise move to leave the basket at Granny’s years ago, she thought.
The semi-automatic rifle she carried these days couldn’t hold any freshly baked cake, not mentioning the bottle of wine, but wolves were afraid of her now. “That silly old huntsman... what an idea, playing with scissors and stones, when you can resolve the problem with a ‘bang’, and the bad bad wolfie is gone for good!” – Red Hood let out a nasty little cackle. In the woods, the last wolf cowered and started whining. He knew he couldn’t win.
“Little Red Riding Hood – The Other Side of the Story” is a new exhibition at The Companion, a sim owned by Mimesis Monday/Heidi Dahlsveen, a "storyteller in both worlds". She invited some excellent SL/RL artists to collaborate on a joint project... and there we go. Alpho Fullstop (one of the alter egos of the genial visual anarchist, Elif Ayiter, mother to the entire Alpha Tribe), Cherry Manga and Soror Nishi together, until April 15th. The avatar is a gift at the installation. Three fantastic creators, and one free Alpha Tribe avie. Do you need more bait?
... and please, please root for the wolf.
