Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?
Renee Alleynne: I was born in Massillon Ohio. A city well know for its huge passion for high school football. I moved around here and there in college but Ohio is still currently my home. However, I travel every chance I get. It is a true passion of mine.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in fetish/pinup modeling?
Renee Alleynne: I actually booked a shoot with Viva Van Story for my birthday, as a gift to myself. I have always loved pin ups, pin up clothing, and that whole era. I heard Viva was one of the best in the business and I loved her photos, so I booked the shoot.I had a great experience, great feedback and it just made me want to do it more.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to start modeling? If not a magazine, what inspired you?
Renee Alleynne: Dita Von Teese is a big influence. She has a beauty that is so simple and flawless. She makes it look easy. And I am a huge fan of Ulorin Vex.
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand out from others?
Renee Alleynne: I think being able to be versatile is important. Whether you are shooting cheesecake pin up, or something darker, more alternative... you need to be able to sell it. If you feel uncomfortable, you will look uncomfortable, and it will come across in the photos. Confidence is key.
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Renee Alleynne: Passion for what you’re doing makes a great photo. You can see it. I love a photo that draws you in, keeps you looking at it.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Renee Alleynne: 37-28-37.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Renee Alleynne: I wear an 8 to an 8.5, but if the shoes are killer, I’ll squeeze into a 7.5.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Renee Alleynne: I really love shoes, and rarely wear anything but heels, except when I’m at the gym. Heels portray a sense of confidence and sexiness.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Renee Alleynne: Anything but country, I’ve never really been a huge fan. Mostly hip hop, pop, and dubstep. But when I’m shooting I like something like Enigma. Enigma’s music puts you in a different state of mind.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you do for fun?
Renee Alleynne: I love spending time with my friends and family and traveling. I love shopping for vintage clothing, love photography, especially anything dark and I love being at the gym, being busy... it’s what I like and what I’m used to.
Sinical Magazine: What’s up next for you?
Renee Alleynne: I just finished a shoot in Las Vegas with Vestige Photography, and will be shooting again in Las Vegas in a few weeks with Viva Van Story. |
