Leila Lunatic is an alternative model based in Krefield, Germany.
Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?
Leila Lunatic: I was born on the 21st of July in 1993 in a small town in the west of Germany. Nowadays I life in the neighbor town.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?
Leila Lunatic: My cousin bought a good camera once and sometimes when we were bored we met to take some pictures, just for fun. But when I finished school and suddenly had a lot of free time I registered into a website for models and photographers, I used the pictures my cousin took for my sedcard there. And from this point I had loads of different shootings, I think over 150 now.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?
Leila Lunatic: I never wanted to become a model or something like that. I just wanted to have some nice pictures of me. And when I created the likepage on facebook, which was meant as a joke first, I got contacted by awesome designer and very talented photographers and worked with me. I think they made me a model, I just was a shy girl which always got bullied in school for the red hair, pale skin and the very skinny body.
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?
Leila Lunatic: Being open minded for trying different styles without losing their own individual touch.
Sinical Magazine: From a model's perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Leila Lunatic: In my opinion, a photo is great when it doesn't just show my outward appearance but my temper and emotions. It's important that the resulting picture is a kind of a real connection to my world of thought.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Leila Lunatic: I really love wearing tight latex clothes. It's an extraordinary feeling of having a second skin which clings to the body perfectly, but also shiny pvc clothes look awesome. Furthermore I loved to wear really tight laced corsets since I was 14, I think I can call that a true fetish.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Leila Lunatic: At the moment I discovered the so called electro-medieval genre, with bands like Helium Vola. But apart from that I'm madly in melodic-death-metal and heavy metal.
Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in your city?
Leila Lunatic: Besides me I just know one fetish model from my city, but in some cities in the vicinity there are special clubs and events for the scene. The people are mostly really friendly and make you feel very comforable and accepted.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what else do you like to do for fun?
Leila Lunatic: I love riding roller coasters, spending time with my friends and family, sometimes just being silly and making mischief, reading good books, sewing new clothes, being outside and playing with my pets.
Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you?
Leila Lunatic: I will collaborate with a few really great designers and create awesome new pictures. Also I will model for some well known fasion labels. In spring next year I want to travel to Scandinavia, maybe I will do some photo shoots there too.
