Interview: Dutch Dame

Model: DutchDame
Catsuit: Fantastic Rubber
Photographer: coJac Photography


Dutch Dame is a bondage and latex fetish model based in the Netherlands.

 

Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Dutch Dame: Currently I am located in the city Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. I was also born in Amsterdam in the late 80’s. However after only two weeks, my family moved out of the city. My father could get work in a harbour on the other side of the country. When I was growing up I always wanted to go back to the big city of Holland. Once I turned 18 years old I moved out of my elders house and went on kinky adventures in Amsterdam.

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?

Dutch Dame: When I was thirteen I started to make cosplay (costume playing) outfits. These outfits were based on my favourite anime and manga stories. It was not a magazine but an online community website where cosplayers shared their images and knowledge. I thought I would make some images of my cosplays to share with others. This is how I started doing photo shoots. Once photographers knew me, they started to ask for other themes, such a fashion. I started doing more shoots and less cosplay. Trying out different themes was very inspiring for me to do more photo shoots and be visually creative. Thanks to cosplay I wanted to become a model.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?

Dutch Dame: Since my 14th year I have been working as a model. First I worked as a fashion and cosplay model. Once I turned into a legal age I also started to do bodypaint and artistic nude shoots. Via the internet I stumbled upon images of fetish models. I loved the look and the attitude of the images that I saw. Especially the beauty in latex and rope appealed to me. This is when I ordered my first latex dress online and tried it out at home. It was love at first sight. From that moment I know I wanted to do more fetish modelling. So I tried a few shoot with corsets, stocking, latex, and more fetish style. However latex was a fetish that felt so good, that I started to more latex and less pin-up style. These days I cannot imagine my life without latex.

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?

Dutch Dame: A fetish model stands apart, in my opinion, when you can see that he/she really enjoys the shoot. You can see it in models eyes and especially if the model has the actual fetish that he/she is shooting. You can see that sparkle in the eyes and it also shows in the body language. The model is relaxed and happy, which shows in sexy and seductive images.

Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Dutch Dame: It depends on the purpose of the images I guess. For example if I model for a designer, then I think it is important that the outfit and accessories can be properly seen. Then it is my job to turn my body in that way to the camera that all the items are shown. On other occasions I am shooting for my website. Then the theme is a latex striptease, rubber dress up or rope bondage. Then it is all about the fetish and the model enjoying this fetish.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Dutch Dame:Clothing wise my fetish is latex. I love the smell of the latex and the way it feels on my skin. Also I really miss wearing latex when I didn’t wear it for a long time. I can look forward to wearing latex when I know I am going too. It is by far my favourite clothing fetish. Off course with a latex outfits I also like to wear a pair of high heels. The higher the better! Besides wearing a latex dress and heels, I also like to wear the more heavy rubber gear. I love to add a hood, collar and corset to my outfit. This makes me feel even more enclosed in the latex which is a very good feeling for me.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Dutch Dame: In centimeters my measurements are 86 centimeters for the bust, 71 centimeters for my waist and 91 centimeters for my hips. When I send my sizes to designers I often get asked if my measurements are correct. The fact is I am actually a really tall woman. I am 1.81 centimetres in height. This is without any heels! Then I also like the extreme high heels, which sometimes makes me over 2 meters tall.

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Dutch Dame: My shoe size (EU) is 39/40. It depends on the brand and type of the shoes. Brands can differ in sizes, even when the model of the shoes are the same. Then also the type of shoe is important because for example with ballet shoes I even prefer the shoes in smaller size. Then it fits on my feet really good, which makes it easier for me to walk on them.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Dutch Dame: I listen to any kind of music, however I do not often listen to country music. It kind of depends in which mood I am in. Sometimes I like to listen to dance music, especially when I am getting ready to go to a party. Other times I like to listen 80’s/90’s indie rock music. Especially when I am in my studio working on the website, projects or just brainstorming about new concepts for shoots and shows.

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Dutch Dame: My website and modeling career is a full time job for me. I spend my days and nights either being in front of the camera or behind the camera making everything happen. Because of this I spend most my time in my business, which I enjoy a lot and is fun for me. Besides my modeling I also do other things for fun. I love to meet up with my friends. Then we go into the city for some shopping, drink a cocktail or go to parties for a fun night out together. Other times I stay at home and then I like to watch movies to have a relaxing evening.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Dutch Dame: As a model I am always working on several projects. Once one project is finished another project has all ready begun. Currently I am working on a new show together with RopeMarks. The theme is still a secret, but it will be a bondage show with rope suspension. We are now rehearsing the show so we will be ready to perform this show in 2015.

Besides working on a new show I can also share that I am working on a new flyer for my website DutchDame.com. The flyer will be promoting the member club that is feature on this site. Offering people to join and subscribe as a member, will gain you full access to all my eye candy.
Further I am working on lots of other projects but unfortunately those are still a secret. However I hope to share these projects with you all very soon. To keep track of all my eye candy and projects you can follow me on my website http://www.dutchdame.com/

Interview: Mademoiselle Cosette

Outfit: www.boombastic-rubber.de

Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I was born in 1978 in the north of Germany. Right now I'm located close to Hanover.

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?

Mademoiselle Cosette: It happened more by chance. There was no magazine which inspired me. It was more the Internet and Myspace. I never thought I could look like the girls in those pictures because I thought i wasn't skinny enough.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I liked posing in front of the camera and I liked the results of my first "just-for-fun" shoots with my friend Frank and Herr Sommer and wanted more;-), especially because I was not like the standard models. And so I signed up at Model-Kartei.de and Fotocommunity.de and arranged more and more shoots. My fetishes were already corset and nylons - I love the 40's and 50', I loved the "classic fetishism" like Betty Page and Bunny Yeager, or Dita, or other classic cabaret sex-bombs. Those women had probably the major influence for me. - so my first photoshoots reflected the styles I like to wear personally.

Later I got in touch with some designers like Fantastic Rubber in Berlin and we started working together for fashion shows. So I became more and more involved in latex modeling. I already liked latex before, but standard sized latex garments didn't fit well for my measurements. But in the end, when it was made-to-measure it was great!

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?

Mademoiselle Cosette: As a model you are like a sweet cupcake. You have to be a little bit special, looking tasty and unique with an attitude.

Sinical Magazine: From a model's perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Mademoiselle Cosette: A photo has to grab a hold of the viewer, and it´s not all about the outfit; it's the view, the pose and attitude you present with the picture, abd maybe a story you want to tell with the picture. And good lighting is always important.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I'm totally into corsets, nylons and high heels. I like the tight feeling of a corset - the tighter the better! - forming your waist, giving your figure this hourglass form and restricting your breath, forcing you to stand tall and proud. Add some nice black shiny high heels and you have a gorgeous outfit. I love it!

There are more fetishes besides latex clothing. But right now more than 80% of fetish pictures you see are about latex. That's really sad.

Sinical Magazine: You wear nylons in a lot of your photos. What is the appeal of nylons to you?

Mademoiselle Cosette: The sensual feeling of the nylons, the classical lady-like look of seamed nylons - it completes my favorite fetish styling.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Mademoiselle Cosette: 98/73/101 cm, 173 cm height.

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Mademoiselle Cosette: 41 EU/10US.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I'm not into any one special type of music; I like a range including pop, trance, and Latin music, but also wave and electro.

Sinical Magazine: What are some of your favorite books and who are some of your favorite authors? And what are you currently reading?

Mademoiselle Cosette: "The Perfume" is still one of my favorite books, I like Anne Rice, and currently I'm reading a cooking book by Jamie Oliver. I'm a bad housewife, haha!

Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Mademoiselle Cosette: I love to teach my ZUMBA Fitness(R) classes, meeting my friends for a coffee or going to the sauna.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Mademoiselle Cosette: At the Dominatrix Party on November 8th in the Netherlands I'll be on stage for an well-known designer from London and enjoying the party... and then two weeks later there's the Wasteland party in Amsterdam - don´t miss it!

Interview: Chrissy Sparks - Doll House Photography

Chrissy Sparks. Photo by Deb Underhill.

 

Chrissy Sparks, winner of the 2014 'Best Vintage Photographer' (National Vintage Awards) is relatively new to the photography industry, has never studied the subject, but is already known worldwide for her Pin Up imagery and dramatic work with lighting, composition and post production skills bestowed in her alternative fashion photography. Known as the UK's number 1 pin up photographer, her brand DOLLHOUSE has taken off at break neck speed and she has now become the go-to photographer for a host of models, consumers and brands.


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in photography?

Chrissy Sparks: I never expected to become a full-time photographer. It was a hobby of which I only occasionally had time to enjoy, but when I did I adored the extravagance I could produce in my fashion photos - it satisfied the hunger I had for creativity, which was somewhat lacking in my work at the time as a graphic designer in London's commercial property sector.

I launched DOLLHOUSE in May 2013 when I moved to Birmingham, it was purely a sideline project at the time. Unexpectedly, my work took off very quickly and before I knew it I was working every hour God sends shooting and editing for all kinds of clients from everyday women (booking elaborate makeover shoots), to clothing designers (fashion and lingerie), professional models (seeking portfolio updates) and other brands (for advertising campaigns etc). I left my career in graphic design after a couple of months of starting DOLLHOUSE and haven't looked back since.

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers that inspired your work when you first started?

Chrissy Sparks: My inspiration comes more from fine artists – particularly Rene Magritte, Gil Elvgren and Allen Jones who fire my imagination. I do not really 'follow' the work of any particular photographer – it all depends on the actual shot and I could just as easily admire a photograph of a complete novice as I could that of a seasoned professional, because I like to work out why the particular shot is successful.

Further, I tend to become more inspired by people I interact with than those whose work I admire from afar. Two photographers who I have been lucky enough to work with briefly whose photography I'd consider among the best I have ever seen, are John Farrar and Paul Ward.

Sinical Magazine: What type of camera equipment do you use?

Chrissy Sparks: Canon 5D Mark III.

Sinical Magazine: What type of lenses and focal length do you prefer for portrait work?

Chrissy Sparks: Currently, I am using the same lens for all of my work, 24-105mm - I have only just switched from shooting with the Canon 7D to the 5D, the full frame feature has improved certain aspects of my work - I'd definitely like to experiment with other lenses and focal lengths when I get the time to learn more about it.

Sinical Magazine: When creating a composition what is your main focus?

Chrissy Sparks: It is a combination of the particular strengths and weaknesses of the model/subject, and certainly my lighting.

Sinical Magazine: How much planning goes into a shoot?

Chrissy Sparks: This varies considerably. I frequently visualise a particular composition because something in everyday life can inspire me – often it is the play of light on an object or colour and I file the image away until it strikes me as really appropriate for a particular model. Other times, when discussing poses, props etc with my model and watching her mannerisms etc, I can be prompted to try something spontaneous – some of my best images can come about from being impulsive.

Sinical Magazine: Do you work with continuous lighting or flash lighting?

Chrissy Sparks: I only ever use flash lighting.

Sinical Magazine: What are some lighting set ups you like?

Chrissy Sparks: I like to create particular contrasts/shadows in my images which I have experimented to achieve, and now I have my favourite set ups and angles. I have been told by some photographers that my lighting is 'wrong', and by others that it is 'beautiful'. I don't use light meters and I often adjust the light dramatically in Photoshop - I understand the desire to capture the finished effect in-camera, but equally I like to break the rules!

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any pet peeves when it comes to models or other photographers?

Chrissy Sparks:With professional models I rarely find fault, other than the occasional model who is so used to shooting one particular genre (fashion or glamour for example) that they struggle to follow direction to create a different style. The day I took the set of photos you'll soon see with Romanie Smith (in the November edition of Sinical), we covered fetish, fashion, pin up, burlesque and alt. - not all models can be this adaptable but of course this is understandable (even if it does cause slight frustration at times) - good modelling is a very difficult skill indeed.

Regarding pet peeves with other photographers, I cannot really comment – we all have to find our own way in this very demanding field.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting that’s happened during one of your photo shoots?

Chrissy Sparks: No single thing springs into mind but I have often been very surprised how my remarkably talented stylist Zaneta Swiatlowska can transform the look of a woman or create a particular look with her incredible work with hair and make up. She has become a dear friend and integral part of my business over the last 12 months, and we hope to work together indefinitely!

 

Rebecca Goldie

 

Sinical Magazine: Do you have one tip that you would recommend to any aspiring photographer?

Chrissy Sparks: No. I have several tips. First, shoot subjects that you love; secondly rely more on your own imagination/creativity to 'psyche' yourself into the right frame of mind to capture an amazing shot and, thirdly, confidence and tenacity are key - I believe captivating photography has lot less to do with one's knowledge of/skill in camera functionality than you would think.

Interview: Silver Wolfie

Photographer: DominikaSwr Photography
MuA: Karina Więcek Makeup
Dress: black-garden.pl

 

Silver Wolfie is a Legnica, Dolnośląskie, Poland-based alternative model.


Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?

Silver Wolfie: I was born in small city near Wroclaw in Poland. Now I'm still based in Poland but in different city - Legnica.

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?

Silver Wolfie: I always wanted to be a model. I mean, I didn't thought about it as a chance to become a star. When I look at the photos I don't see only myself but I'm looking at it as a whole and my person is just part of it. I am very creative and expressive person.


DominikaSwr Photography


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?

Silver Wolfie: First of all, I started as a photographer, so when I start posing I knew a little what it's like, and so on. I took my first professional photoshoot in May 2013 and then I spontaneously sent an e-mail with those pics to one alternative Polish store and they wrote back. Then everything just happened.

Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?

Silver Wolfie: I don't know what exactly do you mean <laugh>. Are you talking about random people that do nothing with their creativity? I believe that each person have skills in something, but very often people can't find what they can do. Being a model gives you that opportunity to show yourself to the world but very often you are treated as a product and not everyone can handle it.

Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Silver Wolfie: The light! A lot of people forget how powerful light is in photos. On one photo you can look like one million $ and on the another one just like a random good-looking girl. Of course stylization, make up, place and all that stuff are also very important.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?

Silver Wolfie: I totally love latex stylizations and I hope that I will have more photoshoots in that way. I also love collarbones, haha.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Silver Wolfie: I'm not that tall, I have only 5'6". Bust 34"/ Waist 24"/ Hips 35"

Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?

Silver Wolfie: 8US.

Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?

Silver Wolfie: I like a lot of types, I think that you can't limit yourself only in one genre. But my favs are metalcore, post-hardcore, folk metal, industrial and gothic metal.

 

Karolina Karnaś Photography


Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?

Silver Wolfie: Taking pictures, running and working out, travelling, going to the cinema, playing computer and console games.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?

Silver Wolfie: It's still a secret, but stay tuned and follow me to see what will happen!
