This case study showcases a collaborative project between Digital West Media, Inc., the publisher of DesertUSA, an online publication specializing in desert-related content, and Midjourney, an advanced AI image generation tool. The project aimed to craft captivating visuals for an article showcasing “The Mizpah Hotel: The Most Haunted Hotel in America.”
The Mizpah Hotel, a renowned haunted establishment, has long been shrouded in eerie tales of supernatural occurrences. Among its most famous specters is The Lady in Red, a ghostly presence said to roam its historic halls. While countless photographs showcased the grandeur of the hotel itself, there was a missing piece in the puzzle—the visual representation of The Lady in Red herself. With no known photographs of this spectral figure, I used Midjourney, a cutting-edge AI image creation tool, to bring her haunting presence to life.
The challenge was twofold. Firstly, to capture the ethereal essence of The Lady in Red as described in numerous accounts, and secondly, to create her image entirely from text prompts without sketches or background blending. This endeavor was crucial in enhancing the storytelling and mystique surrounding the haunted history of the Mizpah.

- Gathering Descriptions: I began by researching and gathering descriptions of The Lady in Red from eyewitness accounts, historical records, and local folklore. These accounts provided invaluable insights into her appearance, attire, and demeanor.
- Midjourney AI Image Creation: Armed with these descriptions, I used Midjourney AI to generate the image of The Lady in Red. I provided text prompts that detailed her spectral features, ensuring her appearance aligned with the haunting descriptions.
The result was a captivating image that finally provided a face to the legend of The Lady in Red. With her haunting presence now visually represented, the Mizpah Hotel’s tale took on a new dimension. The image sparked intrigue and captivated the imagination of those curious about the hotel’s supernatural history, adding depth and authenticity to its ghostly lore.
Midjourney AI proved to be an invaluable tool in creating a captivating image of The Lady in Red entirely from text prompts. Through meticulous research and the advanced capabilities of Midjourney AI, a new chapter was added to the enduring legend of this haunted establishment.
