HOW DID YOU BECOME INTERESTED IN FETISH/BDSM?
I think I've always had a kinky side. When I look back I realize that there were aspects of BDSM play in just about all my relationships. Mostly innocent at first, but then maybe a little less innocent later on - so I won't go into any more detail and specifics on that except to say that when I realized there was a whole big world of fetish and kink out there I was ecstatic - I felt that I had found my "people."
I was more formally introduced during a photo shoot I did with photographer TommyO who contacted me through Myspace and had me down to shoot some latex in a dungeon run by Robert Fluty from "Kink in the Caribbean" fame. It wasn't a week later that I was rushing to get my passport to head down to Jamaica.. they had invited me to shoot in order to promote the next "Kink." It's a year later and I've been down there 3 times shooting and have been featured in their ads. It was like a "Kink Summer Camp" with seminars and parties, and I went from novice to veteran at warp speed. I still have so much to learn but it was a great way to get an idea what was out there - and fall in love with latex and fetish fashion.
DO YOU ENJOY FETISHISM/BDSM PLAY IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE, AND IF SO WHAT ARE YOU INTO?
I really like the mental aspects of BDSM. I like tying someone up, making them totally helpless, and teasing them until they go crazy. Sometimes I like worship and total obedience; where they have to do anything I say, no matter what. I guess you can say I'm a spoiled Princess. As far as fetishes go, I absolutely love high heels; the higher the better. And I'm definitely developing a fetish for tight shiny latex as well. I recently walked for Brigitte Moore of Fetish Haute Couture (Holland) and loved her work, and I also love Atsuko Kudo and the work of Abby Greydanus.
ARE THERE ANY FETISHES THAT YOU DON'T FIND APPEALING?
I'm not fond of scat play.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT FETISH MODELING?
Well; just about everything from beginning to end. I love the excitement of planning a shoot with a photographer or art director, and watching a great makeup artist in the mirror do amazing things to me. Then; slipping into sexy, shiny latex and stepping up into super high heels is a special thrill all it's own. Then it's work, but fun work - getting the perfect pose or the perfect look in the eye; really going for it and giving it my all. And afterward going through them all and picking the best of the best - I learn something from every shoot.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I love Latex, high heels, corsets and flannel onesies ;)
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
I love to model everything. Being a woman you learn to cope with being uncomfortable for looking hot!
DO YOU THINK PINUP AND FETISH ARE BECOMING PART OF THE MAINSTREAM CULTURE?
While I think it will always be a little off to one side; it has been entering the mainstream much more. Katy Perry is a huge latex fan and latex is featured in almost all her videos and live shows. Just off the top of my head Christina Aguilerra, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Heidi Klum, have all turned up in latex lately. There's even an episode of the Simpsons with Katy Perry in latex (designed by Abby Greydanus for Syren). So; yes, it's definitely more mainstream but I believe only the most motivated people will be wearing it. There is a price to pay for all that skin tight sexiness - and you better have the body for it, or stay far far away.
Pinup can be super sexy when it's time to go retro. I love the new designs by "Stop Staring." They're showing up on all the runways and red carpets and that for sure is certainly becoming more mainstream. Personally though, I prefer to look forward - not backward.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
I am very open minded to all music. It really depends on what mood I am in. My styles range from Metal, Underground Hip Hop, Drum N Bass, House, Reggae, Meditation and Abstract Beats.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
I love to travel, meet new people and gain new experiences. I enjoy jet ski's, skydiving, dancing, dressing up and being pampered.
