Sinical Magazine: Ludella, do you feel like your life is more of a playground than a job?
Ludella Hahn: Yes, though that doesn't mean that what I do isn't hard work, but there are aspects of it that are surely much more about play. Being able to dress up, portray various emotions, and tell stories through poses and expressions are all necessary parts of modeling. It's a game of "make believe", and for someone whose favorite fairy tale is "Peter Pan" it's a dream come true. Even more than that though, outside of work, I would say it's still true. You need to look at life with a twinkle in your eye. One of my favorite quotes is by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." I think that's a good way to think about things.
Sinical Magazine: You have been dancing almost all your life... is there anything in the world that would make you give it up?
Ludella Hahn: Never. For me dancing has always been a way for me to vent various emotions. It's an outlet of the most primal variety. I could never not dance.
Sinical Magazine: You have had the chance to travel a lot. Where is theone place you have yet to travel to that is a must before you die?
Ludella Hahn: Rome. I've been to various other cities in Italy, but not to Rome yet, and for a Classics major, it's the kind of place that will make me fall to my knees in amazement.
Sinical Magazine: You have only been modeling and performing full-time since April 2011. How did you accomplish so much in a short amount of time?
Ludella Hahn: Though I have only been modeling full-time since April of last year, I was modeling part-time from 2009 to that date (and from the end of 2006 till summer of 2009 I did a shoot every couple of months as a hobby). I will say that since making the move to full-time I have accomplished much more, probably more in the last year than the prior years combined.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any tips for the other models?
Ludella Hahn: Shoot often and with different photographers. It's best to not get too comfortable with a singular individual so that you're better prepared for any style and situation that may come in the future.
Sinical Magazine: If you had to pick to either only modeling or burlesque performing, what would you pick?
Ludella Hahn: I couldn't. I'd find a way to do both.
Sinical Magazine: What are the Top 5 things to do on your bucket list?
Ludella Hahn: 1. Walk the streets of Rome (toga optional).
2. Visit the Louvre and gaze into the eyes of the Mona Lisa.
3. Go to Burning Man
4. Work as a magician's assistant
5. Play a dead body on CSI.
Sinical Magazine: Who is at the top of your list of photographers you would like to work with?
Ludella Hahn: Bunny Yeager.
Sinical Magazine: What are you working on at the moment?
Ludella Hahn: Too many things at once. You'll have to check back on my website and networking sites for updates, as I don't like to give things away before they're done.
Sinical Magazine: Is there anything you would like to tell your fans?
Ludella Hahn: Thank you! Thank you to everyone who has supported my work, especially those who have been there from the start.
