Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?
Elisanth: I was born in the USSR, it is probably one answer for two questions. I’m currently located in Moldova, and travel a lot.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?
Elisanth: I had a passion for collecting unusual things - clothes, shoes, and props, - since I was a teen. Back in 2008, a local photographer knowing about my collection invited me on a shoot. It was a new experience for me. I was not happy with myself, and it made me go to another shoot, to see if I can do it better. I was happy with another shoot, and it provoked me to take part in new shoots.
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?
Elisanth: I was always searching for beautiful and eye-catching photos over internet. I can’t say it was a particular magazine or a model. Step by step, I got more and more involved into modelling. I had some concepts or just characters I wanted to show. The best result for me is a shoot that makes people think about a story behind the photo. I enjoy receiving questions or versions of the story from different people.
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?
Elisanth: It is strong personal style that can be well recognised, and respect to co-workers, and fans (although it is not so evident at the first glance, it is really important).
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Elisanth: First of all, it is concept, story that is told by a photo. From the technical aspect, it is lighting setup, because a bad lighting can show even the most gorgeous face in a bad light.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Elisanth: Height: 5’ 7” - 170 cm. Weight: 106 lbs - 48 kg. Bust: 34” - 87 cm. Waist: 24” - 60 cm. Hips: 35” - 91 cm.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Elisanth: My shoe size is 8 US / 39 Eu.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Elisanth: I love corsets and high heels, because of the esthetics. There is something magic about a high heeled shoes curves. Besides, I collect gloves, and hats (of any styles). I enjoy wearing latex because of its beautiful shiny look, and feel. I collect hats because it is a strong accessory, and can easily give a new style to any outfit. But one of the strongest fetishes is cropped shrugs - latex, pvc, cotton, - all of them. I have quite a big collection. It probably has no explanation.
Sinical Magazine: There are dark and gothic themes in your work. Can you talk about this?
Elisanth: I prefer photos that tell a story to simply portraits. Usually they are dark or horror photos. Sometimes I get an idea about a character, it excites me, and I start creating makeup or props. Most of my favourite shoots were prepared in a short time because of the excitement. People ask me about the story behind the character, and share their thoughts. Sometimes they are close to mine, sometimes not, it is motivating to see people stopping by, and thinking. Also, it is useful to know their opinion, as I can compare it with mine, and learn something new.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite horror films?
Elisanth: I’d like to talk about sci-fi films, because that’s what I usually watch. I like sci-fi films, usually old-school sci-fi. “Blade Runner” and “Alien” are the ones from the top. Movies based on Philip Dick novels are always welcome because of the strong story. “Minority Report”, “Blade Runner”, “Total Recall”, “Screamers” and new “The Adjustment Bureau.”
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what else do you like to do for fun?
Elisanth: I enoying reading, traveling, and creating props for shoots. During my new trip, I discovered another great hobby - snorkeling.
Sinical Magazine: What’s up next for you?
Elisanth: I’m working on new collaborations with amazing designers for next year, and setting up new plans. |
