A young girl's mother dies, leaving her with a kind sentiment: if she plants a hazel tree where her grave is, the girl can shake it when deeply worried and her mother will help her. Afterwards, a new woman arrives as her mother, along with two new daughters who will serve as sisters. However, the only one ‘serving' is the young girl, as her new family forces her to perform slave labor while covered in cinders. Soon her luck will change, for a grand ball is approaching, and the prince is rumored to be looking for a wife...
The prince is looking for a suitable queen and is holding an elegant ball at the royal palace in mere hours, but only nobility are allowed inside the castle walls. Cinderella fantasizes about the opportunity, and with the help of a witch, she's transformed into a beautiful woman who can attend the event – but only until the clock strikes midnight. What will become of Cinderella and the handsome prince?
A young girl has headed into the forest with a delicious feast of apples, pie and wine; her mother warns her not to do so, for it's dangerous and she might get her dress dirty. Nearby, a hungry wolf awaits, ready to strike; what will happen to the girl?
Both are based off of fairy tales but have a dark and bloody twist. Also, both have beautiful and unique art.
Little Sweet Delusion as well as Covered in Cinders both follow famous fairytales. One tells the tale of a girl and a wolf in a forest, the other is about a poor girl with hidden beauty. These fairytales have been popular throughout their years, and in these adaptations the drawings and the stories follow the original work, but the element of horror brings these stories into the modern ages.
