Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I was born in 1978 in the north of Germany. Right now I'm located close to Hanover.

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine that you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?

Mademoiselle Cosette: It happened more by chance. There was no magazine which inspired me. It was more the Internet and Myspace. I never thought I could look like the girls in those pictures because I thought i wasn't skinny enough.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I liked posing in front of the camera and I liked the results of my first "just-for-fun" shoots with my friend Frank and Herr Sommer and wanted more;-), especially because I was not like the standard models. And so I signed up at Model-Kartei.de and Fotocommunity.de and arranged more and more shoots. My fetishes were already corset and nylons - I love the 40's and 50', I loved the "classic fetishism" like Betty Page and Bunny Yeager, or Dita, or other classic cabaret sex-bombs. Those women had probably the major influence for me. - so my first photoshoots reflected the styles I like to wear personally.

Later I got in touch with some designers like Fantastic Rubber in Berlin and we started working together for fashion shows. So I became more and more involved in latex modeling. I already liked latex before, but standard sized latex garments didn't fit well for my measurements. But in the end, when it was made-to-measure it was great!

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?

Mademoiselle Cosette: As a model you are like a sweet cupcake. You have to be a little bit special, looking tasty and unique with an attitude.

Sinical Magazine: From a model's perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Mademoiselle Cosette: A photo has to grab a hold of the viewer, and it´s not all about the outfit; it's the view, the pose and attitude you present with the picture, abd maybe a story you want to tell with the picture. And good lighting is always important.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I'm totally into corsets, nylons and high heels. I like the tight feeling of a corset - the tighter the better! - forming your waist, giving your figure this hourglass form and restricting your breath, forcing you to stand tall and proud. Add some nice black shiny high heels and you have a gorgeous outfit. I love it!

There are more fetishes besides latex clothing. But right now more than 80% of fetish pictures you see are about latex. That's really sad.

Sinical Magazine: You wear nylons in a lot of your photos. What is the appeal of nylons to you?

Mademoiselle Cosette: The sensual feeling of the nylons, the classical lady-like look of seamed nylons - it completes my favorite fetish styling.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Mademoiselle Cosette: 98/73/101 cm, 173 cm height.

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Mademoiselle Cosette: 41 EU/10US.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I'm not into any one special type of music; I like a range including pop, trance, and Latin music, but also wave and electro.

Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite books and who are some of your favorite authors? And what are you currently reading?

Mademoiselle Cosette: "The Perfume" is still one of my favorite books, I like Anne Rice, and currently I'm reading a cooking book by Jamie Oliver. I'm a bad housewife, haha!

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I love to teach my ZUMBA Fitness(R) classes, meeting my friends for a coffee or going to the sauna.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Mademoiselle Cosette: At the Dominatrix Party on November 8th in the Netherlands I'll be on stage for an well-known designer from London and enjoying the party... and then two weeks later there's the Wasteland party in Amsterdam - don´t miss it!

Interview: Chrissy Sparks - Doll House Photography

Chrissy Sparks. Photo by Deb Underhill.

 

Chrissy Sparks, winner of the 2014 'Best Vintage Photographer' (National Vintage Awards) is relatively new to the photography industry, has never studied the subject, but is already known worldwide for her Pin Up imagery and dramatic work with lighting, composition and post production skills bestowed in her alternative fashion photography. Known as the UK's number 1 pin up photographer, her brand DOLLHOUSE has taken off at break neck speed and she has now become the go-to photographer for a host of models, consumers and brands.


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in photography?

Chrissy Sparks: I never expected to become a full-time photographer. It was a hobby of which I only occasionally had time to enjoy, but when I did I adored the extravagance I could produce in my fashion photos - it satisfied the hunger I had for creativity, which was somewhat lacking in my work at the time as a graphic designer in London's commercial property sector.

I launched DOLLHOUSE in May 2013 when I moved to Birmingham, it was purely a sideline project at the time. Unexpectedly, my work took off very quickly and before I knew it I was working every hour God sends shooting and editing for all kinds of clients from everyday women (booking elaborate makeover shoots), to clothing designers (fashion and lingerie), professional models (seeking portfolio updates) and other brands (for advertising campaigns etc). I left my career in graphic design after a couple of months of starting DOLLHOUSE and haven't looked back since.

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers that inspired your work when you first started?

Chrissy Sparks: My inspiration comes more from fine artists – particularly Rene Magritte, Gil Elvgren and Allen Jones who fire my imagination. I do not really 'follow' the work of any particular photographer – it all depends on the actual shot and I could just as easily admire a photograph of a complete novice as I could that of a seasoned professional, because I like to work out why the particular shot is successful.

Further, I tend to become more inspired by people I interact with than those whose work I admire from afar. Two photographers who I have been lucky enough to work with briefly whose photography I'd consider among the best I have ever seen, are John Farrar and Paul Ward.

Sinical Magazine: What type of camera equipment do you use?

Chrissy Sparks: Canon 5D Mark III.

Sinical Magazine: What type of lenses and focal length do you prefer for portrait work?

Chrissy Sparks: Currently, I am using the same lens for all of my work, 24-105mm - I have only just switched from shooting with the Canon 7D to the 5D, the full frame feature has improved certain aspects of my work - I'd definitely like to experiment with other lenses and focal lengths when I get the time to learn more about it.

Sinical Magazine: When creating a composition what is your main focus?

Chrissy Sparks: It is a combination of the particular strengths and weaknesses of the model/subject, and certainly my lighting.

Sinical Magazine: How much planning goes into a shoot?

Chrissy Sparks: This varies considerably. I frequently visualise a particular composition because something in everyday life can inspire me – often it is the play of light on an object or colour and I file the image away until it strikes me as really appropriate for a particular model. Other times, when discussing poses, props etc with my model and watching her mannerisms etc, I can be prompted to try something spontaneous – some of my best images can come about from being impulsive.

Sinical Magazine: Do you work with continuous lighting or flash lighting?

Chrissy Sparks: I only ever use flash lighting.

Sinical Magazine: What are some lighting set ups you like?

Chrissy Sparks: I like to create particular contrasts/shadows in my images which I have experimented to achieve, and now I have my favourite set ups and angles. I have been told by some photographers that my lighting is 'wrong', and by others that it is 'beautiful'. I don't use light meters and I often adjust the light dramatically in Photoshop - I understand the desire to capture the finished effect in-camera, but equally I like to break the rules!

 

Denise Valentine  (MUAH Zaneta Swiatlowska)

 

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any pet peeves when it comes to models or other photographers?

Chrissy Sparks:With professional models I rarely find fault, other than the occasional model who is so used to shooting one particular genre (fashion or glamour for example) that they struggle to follow direction to create a different style. The day I took the set of photos you'll soon see with Romanie Smith (in the November edition of Sinical), we covered fetish, fashion, pin up, burlesque and alt. - not all models can be this adaptable but of course this is understandable (even if it does cause slight frustration at times) - good modelling is a very difficult skill indeed.

Regarding pet peeves with other photographers, I cannot really comment – we all have to find our own way in this very demanding field.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting that’s happened during one of your photo shoots?

Chrissy Sparks: No single thing springs into mind but I have often been very surprised how my remarkably talented stylist Zaneta Swiatlowska can transform the look of a woman or create a particular look with her incredible work with hair and make up. She has become a dear friend and integral part of my business over the last 12 months, and we hope to work together indefinitely!

Sinical Magazine: Do you have one tip that you would recommend to any aspiring photographer?

Chrissy Sparks: No. I have several tips. First, shoot subjects that you love; secondly rely more on your own imagination/creativity to 'psyche' yourself into the right frame of mind to capture an amazing shot and, thirdly, confidence and tenacity are key - I believe captivating photography has lot less to do with one's knowledge of/skill in camera functionality than you would think.

Interview: Silver Wolfie

Photographer: DominikaSwr Photography
MuA: Karina Więcek Makeup
Dress: black-garden.pl

 

Silver Wolfie is a Legnica, Dolnośląskie, Poland-based alternative model.


Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Silver Wolfie: I was born in small city near Wroclaw in Poland. Now I'm still based in Poland but in different city - Legnica.

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine that you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?

Silver Wolfie: I always wanted to be a model. I mean, I didn't thought about it as a chance to become a star. When I look at the photos I don't see only myself but I'm looking at it as a whole and my person is just part of it. I am very creative and expressive person.


DominikaSwr Photography


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?

Silver Wolfie: First of all, I started as a photographer, so when I start posing I knew a little what it's like, and so on. I took my first professional photoshoot in May 2013 and then I spontaneously sent an e-mail with those pics to one alternative Polish store and they wrote back. Then everything just happened.

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?

Silver Wolfie: I don't know what exactly do you mean <laugh>. Are you talking about random people that do nothing with their creativity? I believe that each person have skills in something, but very often people can't find what they can do. Being a model gives you that opportunity to show yourself to the world but very often you are treated as a product and not everyone can handle it.

Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Silver Wolfie: The light! A lot of people forget how powerful light is in photos. On one photo you can look like one million $ and on the another one just like a random good-looking girl. Of course stylization, make up, place and all that stuff are also very important.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Silver Wolfie: I totally love latex stylizations and I hope that I will have more photoshoots in that way. I also love collarbones, haha.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Silver Wolfie: I'm not that tall, I have only 5'6". Bust 34"/ Waist 24"/ Hips 35"

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Silver Wolfie: 8US.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Silver Wolfie: I like a lot of types, I think that you can't limit yourself only in one genre. But my favs are metalcore, post-hardcore, folk metal, industrial and gothic metal.

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Silver Wolfie: Taking pictures, running and working out, travelling, going to the cinema, playing computer and console games.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Silver Wolfie: It's still a secret, but stay tuned and follow me to see what will happen!

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alt/fetish modeling?

Bianca Beauchamp: I actually got into the latex world and fetish modeling thanks to a latex sleeveless mini dress that I found when I was 18 years old while shopping at a local sex shop with my partner Martin. Back then, I knew nothing about latex, and humans having the tendency to fear the unknown, I admit that my first reaction to it was judgmental as I was associating it with major hardcore BDSM. That day, I came back to my apartment empty handed but with my mind full of unanswered questions. How would the dress look like on me? Would I look ridiculous? Would it be hard to put it on? And mostly, why was I so afraid of it? After all, it was just a dress.

Curiosity outweighed my fear and so I went back to the store, alone this time, to try it on. Newbie as I was, yes, I struggled a little to put it on. When I finally got it right and stepped out the dressing room to look at my latexed reflection, I barely recognized myself. Such a simple dress with so much power. All of sudden, I felt invincible like a super hero and yes, I thought I looked great in it. Instantly, my fear vanished and it got replaced with feelings of excitement, and I became impatient to show my new acquisition to Martin. Yet, I chose to keep it secret a few weeks until Halloween, which I figured would be the perfect night to surprise him with the sexy dress. So in the intimacy of my room, I put it on (less struggling this time) and paired it up with cat ears to look like some sort of cute Catwoman. When I got out of my bedroom and showed my “costume” to Martin, he was positively flabbergasted. After that night, I wore the dress at home for kinky sex fun. Eventually I started posing for Martin as a fun and sometime stressful hobby: although I had lots of fun posing for him, I was insecure with myself and was often wondering if I looked stupid in photos.

At the time, it never occurred to me that this hobby would lead me to become the fetish model that I am today. It’s only when my Latex Lair web site was born, and after university found out about it and threatened to fail my marks if I kept the site open, that I made the big move of quitting school and my day job to solely focus on modeling. Martin also made a full commitment to his photography skills by leaving his job and devoting his time to the web site and to our teamwork full time. Being a united team, kinky and in love, is certainly key to our success I would say. In the end, we both ended up having some sort of artistic bohemian life, thanks to that dress and to our open-minded philosophy. Without those, maybe I would have become a teacher after all. Frankly, I don’t miss that alternate life at all.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others and from a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Bianca Beauchamp: In my opinion, the most important factor to be a successful erotic model is to truly have fun seducing and flirting with the camera. When I teach erotic modeling to the ladies at kinky resort Desire in Mexico, I always say that it all starts with a spark of passion in the eyes. If you don’t have it, then your eyes looks dead and so will the photo. You may think how you made-up your hair, what you wear and where you model should be the most important factors in getting a successful photo. To me, they are secondary because you may wear the most beautiful outfit in the most magical scenery in the world, if the eyes express nothing, seduction will be off. Passion is not something you learn to get, it’s something you have within you. It’s only up to you to let it out and share it to the world. Models that express passion will without a doubt stand out from the others. Then surely comes their creativity and what type of photo shoots they can come up with. Are they imaginative enough to offer a wide variety of styles? I have done multiple hundreds of photo shoots in my career and most of them, I was the one (and with Martin of course) planning it, hunting for locations and selecting the best clothing to go with it. To make a living out of erotic modeling, one sure needs to be fully committed to the job, with both passion and creativity.

 


Sinical Magazine: How do you think the alt/fetish modeling scene has evolved since you started?

Bianca Beauchamp: I believe that thanks to the Internet that has bloomed in the late 90s, early 2000’s, the fetish/alt scene got at last the chance to be shared and popularized to the world in all its splendor. While the scene used to be more secluded and underground in the 70’s and 80’s, today people not only have a few forums where to meet and chat, they have websites such as mine where to check out their kinks. When I started in 1998, I was a pioneer latex model while today there are countless girls posing in front of the camera in latex clothing. The Internet also made it possible for fetish designers to sell their clothing online which again popularized the scene even more by making a variety of stylish fetish clothing available to everyone and for all tastes. And if when I started modeling only a few fetish events existed in the world, such as the famous Skin Two Rubber Ball in London, more cities today host parties and events where you can meet your kinky forum friends and wear your extravagant outfit that you bought online. So yes, in the end, I find that the alt/fetish scene is way much less underground then it used to be and I believe it got more accepted by society and less judged.

One afternoon last year, the Montreal Fetish Weekend gathered in downtown Montreal hundreds of latex fetishists that came from all over the world to attend the event. They were all dressed up with corsets, catsuits, dresses and heels and strolled together in the streets of Montreal visiting the city for a good 2 hours in their fetish gear. Nobody got arrested for public display of nudity (some people wore see-through outfits!). Nobody got attacked or yelled at on the street. It shows you that people’s mentality has changed and is now more accepting of alternative lifestyles than it used to be.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: The fetish clothing focus of this issue is on latex. What do you like about latex fetish clothing?

Bianca Beauchamp: Everything! I love the soft touch of it and once lubed up, I just love the slippery wet feel of it. My olfaction sense is highly developed and to me rubber smells so sweet that I just love burying my nose in there and inhaling deeply. Everytime I get a new outfit, this is actually my little ritual and it does arouse me deeply. I also enjoy how latex encloses my body tight and firmly: it feels like a second skin. Finally, I simply adore the look of it. To my taste, no other material can compete with it. When I wear latex, I feel I look like at my sexiest and that is so powerful that I can only feel happy. When I see it on somebody else, especially on women (I have to admit), it simply turns me on. Two latexed bodies is certainly better than one, especially in bed!

 

 

Sinical Magazine: How much magazine covers have you appeared on?

Bianca Beauchamp: Combining both book & magazine covers, it’s close to 100.

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Bianca Beauchamp: When it’s summer in Montreal and all sunny and nice, I enjoy a lot taking my two chihuahuas for a walk at the park where I lay down bare foot in the grass, shut my eyes for a while and rest while soaking in the sun. I also love having supper with friends: it’s a fun way to relax and unwind. And I have to admit that I entertain a hate & love relationship with the gym. I go 3 or 4 times a week where my trainer makes me lift weights and makes me sweat my French-Canadian butt off. It’s sometimes a pain in the ass (well literally) to motivate myself but at every end of my sessions, I’m feeling content and my body floats on a nice buzz of endorphins. And finally, I always enjoy my Friday nights with a vodka martini à la Bond, dressed up with kinky outfits and having some super sexy good times with Martin... and sometimes with sexy ladies. That is for sure a LOT of fun.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Bianca Beauchamp: Martin and I are currently working on merging my two web sites, Bianca’s Latex Lair & B.B Glam, on one platform that will be Ipad, Iphone, Android, and tablets friendly. In other words, it’s make-over time big time! When this will be done (check out www.ilovebianca.con to see the release date), It’s going to be time to plan my new 2015 Calendars as well as my next upcoming Latex, Glam and Special Editions book sessions that I sell on my online store. As for the rest like traveling for photo shoots, attending fetish events and everything else that life throws at me, fans can always read about my upcoming projects on my blog page www.biancabeauchampallaccess.com and on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/biancabeauchampmodel. |
