How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
I started out as a B movie actress and then got into modeling as a glamour/art nude model. Years later, I did my first bondage shoot with Moraxian in Maryland. Soon after, I met a girl named savannah who told me about fetishcon and I decided to go check it out with my best friend Brett. I was a total newbie to the scene so I felt totally out of place and like derr the first time I was there. I was much more comfortable the second time I went as I had one of my really good friends Violetta storms with me. I also had a lot more experience in the genre by then and knew what to expect. When I first started out in fetish, I was just doing the video stuff: bondage, foot fetish, super heroine, messy stuff, etc. It wasn't till much later on that I really got into the latex and fetish fashion world from being around it so much. I just love how latex looks and hugs your body and became very interested in fetish fashion imagery. I adore models like Rubberdoll, Jade Vixen, Lauren WK, and Mosh. They always have such amazing wardrobe and beautiful pictures.
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
I do like dressing up in latex and corsets when I am doing a shoot or going out to fetish parties. I go to parties because I like goth/ industrial music and the performances, but that's it. I'm not into “the lifestyle” and getting tied up and whipping some sissy slave bitch boy. Just because I have latex outfits does not mean I'm a dom and do “sessions” , yet people always ask me. Sorry... I'm pretty tame and vanilla. Nothing too crazy, just some sexy outfits... Ha ha!
Are there any fetishes that you don't find appealing?
I don't get anything involving pooping or peeing on anyone, or anything involving real blood. JUST GROSS
What excites you about fetish modeling?
I adore the beautiful avant-garde fetish fashion pictures. I love the crazy latex wardrobe, amazing costumes, and gorgeous hair/makeup. It's like becoming another person for a day. It's very different than my normal attire of sweats and t-shirts. Getting published is also very exciting as it's nice to be noticed for your hard work. Also, the creativity of a lot of the fetish fashion models inspires me so much as lot of the girl's style themselves and some even make their own costumes. It's amazing. I also love being able to travel around to go to the different fetish parties and see the burlesque performances at different events.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I love latex latex latex! I feel so sleek and like a superhero when I wear it :) I love catsuits the most and plain black latex will always be my favorite. It may be simple, but it always looks great. I really like waist cinchers as well as I love how tiny they make my waist look and they just add so much to any outfit. I also love how amazing ballet boots look even though I can barely stand in them. I pretty much adore most of the gothic type couture wardrobe. J I love wardrobe that's darker and edgy and not the mainstream.
What are your least favorites?
I hate it when photographers give me “soccer mom” type outfits. You have a hot girl there with all this amazing wardrobe, yet you want her to wear a button down shirt and khakis? REALLY? I feel like such a dumb ass in these types of outfits. I also hate teeny bikinis and stripper clothes.. (Like those checkered tube dresses). These photographers don't understand those stripper outfits are so unflattering unless you are super skinny. I'm also not a fan of cheesy one size fits all Halloween costumes. Those always fit so horrible and just look cheesy as hell. I'm not really a fan of frilly lingerie either, like I said I just like darker, edgier stuff. I cringe when I see pictures of me in some of these outfits that photographers make me wear sometimes. Shudder.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
Yes, it is definitely becoming part of the mainstream culture. Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera, and Katy Perry often wear latex and corsets for their photo shoots, videos, and performances. Playboy and other mainstream magazines are also using pinup and some latex in their magazines/websites now, when before it was mostly just straight up glamour. Another example of fetish becoming more mainstream is when I did a commercial for the Tribeca film festival in NYC. I was a latex dominatrix alongside a fire breather and a flying hawk. Years ago, the moment you said fetish, people would just assume porn, now it's more accepted.
What kind of music do you like?
I like industrial, electro, techno, dance, and pop. I adore Conor Maynard. (hes a uk artist), Lady Gaga, Depeche Mode, Marilyn Manson(his older stuff), Nine Inch Nails, Shiny Toy Guns, Combichrist, Psychlon Nine, etc.
What do you like to do for fun?
I go to burlesque shows a lot, see Broadway plays, and go out dancing at goth/industrial parties. I also go to the beach/boardwalk, go on speedboat rides, and go kayaking/rafting. I enjoy going to haunted houses around Halloween and of course playing with my 5 guinea pigs.( I love them so much! They are my furry children!) I'm also a big fan of those forensic tv shows on the Investigation Discovery channel (ID) such as Deadly Women and Cupcake Wars on the food channel. Lastly, I enjoy also reading suspense novels as they are good for long ass bus/train/plane rides.
