Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?
Cassidy Rose: Hi my name is Nadine, my artist name is Cassidy Rose. My Birthday is 05.09.1987. I was born and raised in Willich, a small country town next to Krefeld in Germany. Now I am living in the big German city Cologne with the huge and beautiful cathedral and a lovely river.
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?
Cassidy Rose: During my apprenticeship I worked as a bartender and showgirl at Coyote Ugly’s. For flyers and posters we had a couple of photo shoots and I learned how to pose and model in front of a camera. I started loving it. Also I came across some pin up magazines and became a huge fan of Dita Von Teese.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?
Cassidy Rose: In my younger years and when I didn’t have all the tattoos my Coyote Ugly colleagues gave me the nickname “Dita“ like Dita Von Teese, because of my pearl skin, black hair and preference for vintage clothing and corsets. Dita became my big idol. I studied all the pin up magazines and blogs I could find and tried to do my hair and make-up and also my styling like the pin up models I saw. I also did a couple of photo shoots, but real modeling for me started in 2012. I was 40 pounds thinner and I had more life experience.
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?
Cassidy Rose: Being real and being yourself. You need to find your best look. Your personal “trademark.”
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Cassidy Rose: That men love you and women want to be like you. No, that other women like my work is really important to me! I want to inspire people with what I am doing with my different looks. Every lady can be a princess. I also think good photos should be sensitive and erotic but never cheap. When you get compliments by other women for what you are doing, you are doing something right!
Sinical Magazine: What has been the most interesting thing to happen during one of your photo shoots?
Cassidy Rose: One time I was all dressed up like a mermaid and while I was sitting on a big stone in the river, a boat full of people crossed in the background of the picture. I never had so much fun and was on so many private snapshots. Good times!
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Cassidy Rose: I love the combination of a good corset, tight (fake leather) pants and expensive high heels. A corset emphasizes your curves.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Cassidy Rose: Height: 5’10”. Weight: 143 lbs. Bust: 37”. Waist: 28”. Hips: 37”. Cup: C. Dress: 36. Shoe: 7.5.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Cassidy Rose: 7.5.
Sinical Magazine: In this photo set you are wearing nylons. What is the appeal of nylons to you?
Cassidy Rose: There is no sexy, erotic underwear without nylons. Nylons feel amazing on your skin and make your outfit noble. Nylons are the embodiment of femininity. Your man will love you for wearing them.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Cassidy Rose: I like to listen to darker rock, gothic, and melodic electro music.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite books and who are some of your favorite authors? And what are you currently reading?
Cassidy Rose: I am really romantic so I am a huge fan of Nicolas Sparks books. My favorite Movie is “Water for Elephants”.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?
Cassidy Rose: Well in my free time I love to think about new photo shoot concepts. Being an artist and model is my main hobby! I love to get tattooed in my freetime. I also love to cook (I am a vegan). I love animals (especially rabbits and dogs). I like to hang out in nature, to go to good concerts, and I love finding old furniture and unique clothes at flea markets. Also, I enjoy traveling!
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?
Cassidy Rose: Recently, I made my debut as a steamgirl, for lovely Kato and steamgirl.com. I worked as a model for Harley Davidson. I’ve been acting for some really cool music videos. I’ve been modeling for different catalogues for gothic and rockabilly clothing lines. I performed at latex and fetish shows and had my own “tattoo model“ youtube.com channel where I was the host. For sure you will see me in the near future in a couple of tattoo/fashion/vintage/alternative and fetish magazines. I’m also working on a brand new stage performance called “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn“, which will involve fire fans and fire breathing.
Thanks for being interested in my work. |
