Aux cuisses épaisses et aux yeux perçants ...
With thick thighs and piercing eyes...
Qu'elle règne longtemps!
Long may She Reign!
I never imagined when I packed up my showgirl truck with the last few items I still owned and drove across five states to reside in the haunted hills of the rocky mountains that life as I knew it would change forever; and of course for the better.
I've made peace with my past, bid goodbye to those I love dearly and have traveled the country in search of love, my dreams and transforming the wildest ideas into manifested reality and each day I continue to meet incredible, creative souls with as much joie de vivre for this beautiful life that I have while also cutting ties each season with those who no longer serve the greater purpose of evolving alongside one another for the betterment of all humankind.
It takes a brave, honest, free and loving soul to embody the ideology of a true bohemian and I must admit. I never realized just how much endurance, fortitude and down right hard ass work was required to live the life I have dreamt of living since I was a little girl.
But alas I find myself living the dream each and everyday surrounded by roots to plant and grow here in Colorado, wings to fly and travel to my love in New York City and back to California to spend time with those who have had my heart for most of my lifetime and a few new extended friends and family in my wolf pack and soul tribe who've managed to find a special place in my heart the moment we met and all these years later.
I spent years online, working, networking, designing, creating, manifesting, logistically planning and securing my legacy and I never once realized just how much real life I was missing when I was busy filling my life with projects and pursuits which this year have taken a bit of a back seat to the scenic drive and wanderlust adventure that my life has transformed into in just a single year.
As they say though, assign a decade's worth of work in a single year to an Aries and it will absolutely manifest in utter completion. I've never felt so full and fulfilled in my entire life and now that I have a beautiful place to call home, living and working for a profoundly amazing family, the wife of which just happens to be a dear childhood friend who I helped relocate out here earlier this Spring to a career path for the future when my wings carry me from this lost-boy treehouse to land in Gotham City when my love and I are ready to live together, share a family together, raise a daughter together and grow old together to having the mobility, financial standing and ability to travel back to California to see those I love. Life has transformed into something so much grander than even I could've ever dreamed of.
After embracing my truest role in the comic and cosplay community as the one and only Bella BloodLust. The phone started to ring, the emails continued to pour in and I was offered my first interview for erotic dark creatures of the night who indulge in modeling while they're not busy saving the world from evil and darkness. Nocturnal Girls Magazine. For those who ache to learn more about my world and all the salacious past, present and glorious future it beholds, Join The Scarlet Gardens for full interview.
That infamous photo that broke the kinky internet and set the world on fire with talks of Rubenesque Revolutions opened the doors to a floodgate of artistic opportunities. After shooting "Strawberry Coquette" salaciously indulging in a 1940's Pin-Up Picnic for two, I was published internationally for the first time in my life and the ripe and tender age of 28, and as I walk the same path as Bettie Page herself towards alternative icon status, I plan to make Old World History by painting the town red of course with every sumptuous curve my rubenesque form has to offer.
For those who pine for me you can find these sexy images in The Scarlet Gardens as well as within the pages of these exclusive issues of The September Issue of Femme Rebelle Magazine & The October Issue of Delicious Dolls Magazine, both issues are from Autumn & Winter of 2015.
Another wonderful opportunity that arose after years of devotedly reading in the nude, was to be added to wait list to bring naked reading to a salon near you very, very soon. A midst Steampunk documentaries featuring Bella BloodLust as Airship Captain, to endless opportunities that arrived on my door that were unable to be committed too, this second year has been massively inspiring to fuel the cogs and wheels of future dreams into reality.
To top it all off, I was more than elated to open and debut my international vegan and gluten free Patisserie! Never again will you have to sacrifice taste for indulgent sweets, after working incessantly hard for over two and a half years formulating each and every recipe by hand, I'm more than proud to introduce you to:
Strawberry Coquette's Wild Bohemian Patisserie.
After four glorious years slaying vampires and Dracula's minions of in The Order of The B.L.O.O.D as Red Skye World Comic's Bella BloodLust in The BloodSlayers, It was time to take this world domination empire expansion to the next kingdom, one of conventions and incredibly talented human beings from all over the comic book and cosplay convention world at the central valley's one and only Zapp Con!
It was truly an amazing time and I had an absolute blast meeting so many people, new fans and most of all inspiring young girls everywhere to embrace their curves as the vampire huntress Bella BloodLust is known for being the curvy female Blade for this very reason!
Shortly after this comic book celebration I reached a lifelong milestone for any writer and a writer of horror and erotica (horrortica) after 12 long years of blood, sweat, tears and corpses I finally gave monsterous birth to my child of the night in the form of a profound and provocative journey into those who have captured me, bound me to their will and nearly snuffed the light out. For those who desire to satiate their dark desires, why not explore what's waiting for you All Hallow's Eve of 2018 in A Scarlet Collection of Monsters & Madmen.
The adventures definitely didn't end there, from revisiting old career aspirations in shooting bio-film documentaries for comedian friends on the road and rise to fame, to delving back into my live modeling expertise for Fresno's Drink & Draw! Not only was it a sheer thrill (pun intended, did you see what I was wearing? Or NOT wearing Yowza!) to inspire artists with The Rubenesque Revolution but meeting more than a few wonderful and gorgeous fans who have thus become lifelong artistic friends has been the most profound side bonus that I never imagined would transpire from just posing on stage in my lingerie like Marie Antoinette in her boudoir.
From future modeling positions with Fresno Drink & Draw to just this week being hired as staff for Vonfarmer Media as a social media public relations assistant, blogger, writer and of course stock model on many future excursions from wildlife cinematography, and creating artistic media for the public to promote their lives and businesses with a visionary touch I could not be more proud and elated to have been hired to join forces with such an amazing and lethal creative team. As most know modeling and acting are near and dear to my heart, but as a woman who desired to work behind the curtain in the world of media in my teen years I have to admit being able to have this opportunity at the exact same time that my modeling and acting career is truly taking off to be by far the pinnacle of purrfection in this desire to rule the world with a scarlet empire.
After all that's transpired in such a brief year so it seems; all one can do is sit back in awe of what a single woman can do with the world when the world desires to create wonderous vision's with you.
Closing doors and opening new ones was a profoundly big theme this year; so big in fact that I forgot in my cybernetic haze for the past few years how much physical presence is demanded for those who have woven creative tapestries into the world and who are required to make an appearance for special bookings, intimate soiree's and underworld networking that took place in person along the east and west coast this year to solidify my stronghold and to ensure the legacy of my empire continued to reign.
As they say most successful queens or kings are those who thrive on the knowledge of obtainment from their royal throne, but in true Spanish fashion, my heart and soul desired to leave my empire unattended in the technological sense to capture allies both near and far to continue to create and expand upon all the work that's taken place here these past few years with those who've been faitful and loyal within my alluring and erotic network.
I found myself out and in the world, with mud, snow, dirt and blood trekking towards the apex of mountains towards my ultimate destiny. I do confess it's not for the weak of heart as I found myself panicked and overwhelmed more times than I could count and in the latest parts of winter losing hope and confidence in self was very much a part of the ego's final obliteration process.
My book capture the dark souls of Europe and made it's way to Sweden, Romania and The UK honoring my gothic soul who's roots originated in the realms of Transylvania with the one and only Dracula to lead the way down dark candlelit corridors. As I shut the doors to my shaman temple after an entire decade in service to the worldwide spiritual community I felt a huge sense of relief and normalcy return to my aura after years of being haunted by ghosts who made formal introductions. Now days I find myself haunted by those in my past who I have left considerable impressions upon, but you'll be able to explore those debaucherous tales in my upcoming erotica series Memoirs of a Mistress.
I must confess, between moving across the country, establishing an old love in an entirely new way, traveling across the country more times this year than I ever have in my entire life, establishing a career path and finding a safe and healthy place to call home; burlesque siren pursuits were a bit out of my focus this past year, but that doesn't mean that these pipes are warmed up and ready to go for those who desire to celebrate a curvaceous Jessica Rabbit in all her glory.
I have to sit here with a glowing Cheshire smile realizing that this moment is a milestone and celebratory day that deserves the full focus of my attention to previous accomplishments.
I never imagined when I sought to create a rubenesque nude photoshoot series that I'd be hearing from film makers, European photographers and would be hired by and still continue to work with many of Hollywood's most infamous and well-known creators but a dream took root that day and since then my entire world had been transformed into a living dream come true.
From publications, to published book, from documentaries and film festivals to interviews with some of the most infamous magazines and web editors in the erotic arts industry to embracing my voice again and using my namesake as a part of my burlesque siren acts as well as establishing the life I always dreamed of both in the mundane and underworld. All of this wouldn't have been possible without the right people, places, timing and courage and conviction to make it all happen and this year with so much rest required between traveling, work and finding who I am again from the most beautiful broken pieces that shine to the vivid whole mosaic that was woven together in each golden exchange with those who I've met and some of which have known for a lifetime.
All I can say is that if you're still here for the 3 ring circus and one woman show, I implicitly thank you for your support all these years and for those who have yet to join in on all the fun that's taking place this year at Bella BloodLust HQ. I welcome you to my menagerie of mysteriously erotic undertakings and do so hope to see you in person for a drink, a fine meal, a series of laughs at thee darkest and most inappropriate topics of discussion and to share in the dream come true of finally at the tender age of thirty two; living life to the absolute fullest.
Until we meet, and meet again,
