Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where?
Miss Mandy: I was born on the 30th of April 1993 in a town called Umeå, in Sweden.
Sinical Magazine: Where are you currently located?
Miss Mandy: I still live in Umeå, but my plan and dream is to move soon. Stockholm or London is on top of the wish list at the moment.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first fetish magazine or book that you came across?
Miss Mandy: The first one I laid eyes on was Marquis Fetish Magazine.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in fetish modeling?
Miss Mandy: I had done a few shoots in fabric and “normal” clothes when a friend of mine suggested latex. I am the kind of person that wants to try things before making an opinion about it, so I ordered a gorgeous dress and fell in love. The shine, the smell and everything about it was appealing. Shortly after that shoot, I was booked for a catwalk show at Dominatrix and had a blast. Since that I have met the most amazing and creative people, and my plan is to continue with this for as long as I can!
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?
Miss Mandy: I think it’s hard to stand out, when there is so many beautiful ladies out there! My favorite models have a really strong look; I can recognize them from just a tiny thumbnail picture. Besides having a strong look, having a good personality and being you is probably most important. In the end, no matter if you are pretty or photogenic, no one wants to hang out or work with a douchebag.
Sinical Magazine: What has been the most interesting thing to happen during a photo shoot?
Miss Mandy: Well, that must be German Fetish Ball 2014 when I was shooting with Michiel Kivits in an awesome kitty bodysuit and hood made by Christian Gschweng. We found a great location, it was a beach bar (not a real beach though) with a boat besides it. We got permission to shoot on the boat, but they told us to be quiet because someone was sleeping in the boat. So, in the middle of me walking on all four playing cat, a dude comes up from a little door with a slice of pizza in his hand, looks as hangover as one can be. He got really chocked and uncomfortable when he saw me crawling around on the boat and quickly went back where he came from. I laughed a lot at that must have been really weird for him!
Sinical Magazine: How do you think the alt/fetish scene has evolved since you started modeling?
Miss Mandy: I did my first shoot with latex the fall of 2013, and went to my first event in November 2013 so I am really new to all this. I had never gotten in contact with latex clothing before that, but always admired it from distance. In this short time since I started, I don’t think it have evolved that much.
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Miss Mandy: The thing I strive for in my modelling is reaching out with a feeling. Of course the lightning, the outfit, location and the people involved such as photographers and stylists is extremely important to get the result you are after, but the most important for me is the feeling.
Sinical Magazine: The fetish clothing theme of this issue is nylons. Can you talk about the appeal of nylons to you?
Miss Mandy: Stockings are a big fetish of mine; I love the look of them, both on myself and on other girls. Really thin nylon stockings with a lace edge are my favorites.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite brands of nylons?
Miss Mandy: I still have not found my favorite brand, but I am trying my way through brands to find it!
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Miss Mandy: I like different styling, either sexy black lace lingerie with stockings, or a nice latex outfit with a harness. A tight under bust corset and high heels is also one of my favorite things to wear, and see on other pretty ladies. I love heavy rubber, and really want to explore that more this year.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Miss Mandy: 83-57-78.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Miss Mandy: EU 37.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Miss Mandy: I mostly listen to different kinds of metal, especially metal core, death core and progressive metal. Besides from metal, I listen to a lot of different types of music, everything from indie to rap-rave. The only genre I can’t stand is house.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?
Miss Mandy: I love going to music festivals, travel and hang out with friends! I rarely go out on nightclubs, I prefer staying at home cuddling with my cats and chill with friends.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite books and who are some of your favorite authors?
Miss Mandy: I seldom read books; I have a really hard time focusing and a mild form of dyslexia. But if I read a book, it should be a good fantasy one like the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?
Miss Mandy: I am going to be in a music video for the first time. I am really excited about that. I am also going to Dominatrix in March and German Fetish Ball in May. Other than that, just try to get more experience as a model. Besides from modelling, my band is right now making our first full length album, and we hope to release it as soon as possible. |
