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

Lyn: To me, the most important aspects for a model is to be passionate, to believe in yourself, to have charisma, and not to be afraid to play a character (expression and pose).

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

Lyn: Punk, rock, techno hardcore, hard tribe.

 

 

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

Kay Morgan Interview

 

Kay Morgan is an alternative model, photographer and re-toucher. She has been published in many magazines such as Skin Two, Marquis Magazine, and Heavy Rubber.


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

Kay Morgan: I was born under the sign of Scorpio, October 1986 in Leuven (Belgium). When I finished my studies in Criminology last summer, I decided to move to Paris (France) and still living there at the moment.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?

Kay Morgan: Some friends asked me to join them for a group-shoot-day in gothic theme, back in 2006. I hesitated for a while but then decided to join them. I didn't have any modeling ambitions, it was just for fun.

 

 

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model?

Kay Morgan: I never wanted to become a model, and magazines have nothing to do with the fact that I'm modeling now. After doing that first photoshoot, I got more and more proposals from photographers and decided to continue with it. It has always been just for fun and to be able to express myself in a creative way, as well as for learning and gaining new experiences. I don't like to call myself a "model", but I do enjoy modeling :)

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

Kay Morgan: In general I would say; a recognizable look and good posing skills. But besides all outward appearance, I think a nice personality is also very important.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Kay Morgan: 90 - 62 - 99cm (in inches 35,4 - 24,4 - 39).

 

Stéphane Roy Photography

 

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes?

Kay Morgan: Latex and high heels. I also very much love corsets, stockings and nice lingerie, but I wouldn't call them real "fetishes".

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

Kay Morgan: Flattering angle, good lighting, and of course a good styling and make-up & hair. I don't think only 1 aspect can make a photo good, it's really a combination of different aspects together.

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

Kay Morgan: A lot! My favorite types of music are new wave, darkwave, gothic rock, metal (heavy/death/neo-classical/doom), rock (post-/progressive/hard) and classical music (especially classical and romantic period).

 

 

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

Kay Morgan: I love to cook, read, listen to music, be creative (sewing, crocheting, making my own latex outfits), go out in the nature, kart racing, learning new things, and travel. I am a classical trained violin player and spend most of my life with music. Since a couple of months I started learning/teaching myself photography and retouch.

Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you?

Kay Morgan: Since I don't have a job at the moment, my main goal is to focus on that. I hope that my photography and retouching skills will evolve quickly and wish to integrate them in my (professional) future plans. I am setting up some projects at the moment but don't want to tell too much yet...you'll see! When it comes to modeling, I will keep on doing it for as long as I enjoy it.

Ivy D'Muerta Interview

Photo by Michele Muerte

 

Ivy D'Muerta is a Los Angeles-based model. She has been published in publications such as FHM, Inked Girls Magazine, and Inked Magazine.


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?

Ivy D'Muerta: I first entered modeling when I was about 13 years old, I landed a Manager and Agent but quickly cut away from the contract. I was too young and insecure about my body and knew it would be tumultuous if I continued.
Fast forward a few years and I “accidentally” fell into modeling again when a friend of mine asked me to help her with her college photography assignment and if I would pose some pinup shots for her. I agreed, and from those simple photographs I began to get hired by a few small retro inspired clothing companies. Seven years later I now am able to make a living from modeling and it has given me so many wonderful opportunities and learning experiences.

Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine you came across that made you want to become a model?

Ivy D'Muerta: I actually wanted to continue modeling after doing it for a couple friends of mine who were in school to get their degree in photography. I had too much fun on set, creating the setting, creating the wardrobe and the hair and makeup styles to go with it. It is like living your imagination out in real life, I will never tire of that.

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

Ivy D'Muerta: So many things set each model apart from another, each has their own individual looks and styles… But styles. An individual style, one that shows that there is a confidence there. Where the statement underneath all else screams “this is me, this is who I am, and I’m not changing that for anything.”

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Ivy D'Muerta: I’m tall, I’m 5’10” with a nice hourglass figure.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes?

Ivy D'Muerta: I absolutely love a perfectly structured and fitted ensemble. Whether it’s a gown, a badass jacket and jeans, or even a simple shift or shorts. Structure in my wardrobe is a must have. I like the clean, strong lines and the utter feminity it brings by showing off my curves just right.

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

Ivy D'Muerta: From a model’s perspective, I think great lighting is the absolute most important aspect from any photograph. Whether a model is in it or not, perfectly set (natural or artificial) light and shadow are what truly makes an image. Personally, I love photos of models where you can see at least a hint of raw emotion. Something there shouting out through all the fluff or grime, speaking volumes to the viewer.

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

Ivy D'Muerta: Metal and Classical are daily listens. I work for Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal so I absolutely am surrounded by my favorite genre of music each day. As a child I played the flute and was even a guest for the Disney Orchestra at the age of 11. I feel an open mind to music is an open mind to the world, and to truly appreciate music in it’s entirety one must be open to listening to as many genres as possible. I enjoy jazz, punk, classic rock, rockabilly, the old crooners, opera, etc.

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

Ivy D'Muerta: I love camping! I’m an outdoors enthusiast and a bit of an adenaline junkie so when I’m not modeling or dong radio or TV stuff I’m out finding aventures. Hiking, skydiving, practicing Muay Thai, watching hockey (life long hockey fan, especially for the LA Kings!), camping, whatever comes up I’m usually down to try it or experience it at least once. Hell, my first job was working back country in the Yosemite National Park at the age of 15. I’m ready to travel the world!

Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you?

Ivy D'Muerta: Prepare to see/hear more of me on Sirius XM Liquid Metal later this year! I don’t aim to stop and I’m working hard to land a hosting job traveling and showing viewers different cultures, music and the importance of both along with a dash of science!

Ludella Hahn Interview

Gloves and Neck corset: Karen Von Oppen

This interview and pictorial was feature in the 2 Year Anniversary Issue of Sinical Magazine. Print copies can be ordered here. Later this year, look for Ludella Hahn on the cover of our first fiction book release.


Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine or image you saw that made you want to start modeling?

Ludella Hahn: I can't specifically remember the image that made me first want to model, but I do remember the model that made want to take modeling seriously. I remember seeing multiple beautiful images of the deliciously curvy Jami Deadly online. Seeing someone who was not the typical tall and thin fashion model creating such gorgeous images and modeling for various retro clothing designers opened my eyes to the opportunities that a girl with curves actually had. I never thought I could be a model because I’m only 5’2” and have a voluptuous derriere, but when I saw her making it, I realized that I could too, potentially.

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in modeling?

Ludella Hahn: I started with fetish modeling at the end of 2006 as a source of income in between jobs while I was in college. I remember making a modelmayhem account, but I honestly can't remember how I discovered that site. I was only modeling once or twice a month at most the first couple of years as it was just for some pocket money, but in 2009 I started building and focusing more on my portfolio. I kept getting requests to do pinup, so that was around the time I decided to take modeling more seriously with pinup as my niche. I was still in school and still working, but after graduating and the lease on my apartment in Portland, Maine ran out, I moved down to Boston in April of 2011 with my now husband Evan Smith and began modeling full-time.

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

Ludella Hahn: Creativity and personality. I think people have a greater impact when they are honing in on their own strengths instead of trying to replicate someone else's.


 

Sinical Magazine: What do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?

Ludella Hahn: Emotion. Art should arouse some kind of feeling from the viewer.

Sinical Magazine: Do you have any pet peeves when it comes to working with photographers?

Ludella Hahn: A lack of manners is generally a pet peeve.

Sinical Magazine: You have travelled quite a bit for photo shoots and performances. What is the most interesting that has happened during a trip?

Ludella Hahn: As far as travels go, I was once locked inside a basilica in Italy by accident. I was with my sister and a friend of hers and they didn’t notice we were still in there when they locked up for closing. Luckily the caretaker hadn’t left yet and we were able to get out.

 


Sinical Magazine: What has been your favorite city to visit?

Ludella Hahn: Rome, though that was for my honeymoon. It’s incredibly romantic, and there is so much history to be absorbed. I am a Classics Major though, so perhaps I have a biased opinion.

Sinical Magazine: You often wear girdles and stockings in your shoots? Are these some of your clothing fetishes?

Ludella Hahn: Yes, I have a fetish for legwear. I love shiny pantyhose, knee and ankle socks, legwarmers, ff stockings, girdles, garterbelts, and high heels. I also have a thing for bodysuits.

Sinical Magazine: who are some of your favorite designers?

Ludella Hahn: I adore working for Heartbreaker. They carry such a variety of vintage-inspired clothing from cute and sweet to more glamorous looks. I am also a major fan of Vengeance Designs and Dawnamatrix for their innovation in latex design.

 

 

 

Sinical Magazine: When did you become interested in performing burlesque?

Ludella Hahn: I first became interested when I was in high school and first saw Moulin Rouge to be perfectly honest. I didn't pursue it until 2009 when I discovered that there was a burlesque scene in Maine, where I was still living at the time.

Sinical Magazine: How much preparation goes into your performances?

Ludella Hahn: It depends on the performance. I've done some improv-styled shows where you can't really prepare outside of costuming because you don't know how the music will sound, and I also have my "set" acts that have a lot more prep and time involved, usually do to the costuming. Most of my costumes are never finished because I keep wanting to add more rhinestones and embellishments and am constantly upgrading. Acts can be the same way. You learn what works and what doesn't work the more you do them, and then make modifications accordingly.

Sinical Magazine: What is the burlesque/fetish scene like in Boston?

Ludella Hahn: There are a couple of regular fetish nights. I haven't had a chance to attend too many of them due to my erratic schedule though. As for burlesque, there are a few prevalent troupes in Boston, but not as much opportunity for solo performers such as myself, so I tend to perform more in NYC.

 

 

 

Sinical Magazine: Congratulations on landing the covers of several magazines in the past year. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

Ludella Hahn: Thank you. My advice would be to be yourself. Learn your strengths and cater to them. Also, remember to be considerate and respectful. Professionalism goes a long way.

Sinical Magazine: What's up next for you, this year?

Ludella Hahn: A lot of travel. I have more features and projects in the works, but I keep it a policy to not peep until complete. Once completed, www.ludellahahn.com and www.facebook.com/LudellaHahnFanPage will be the first places I'll post said mysterious projects.
