Ewel Interview

 ewel 1

 

Ewel is an alternative model based in Bratislava, Slovakia.

 

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alternative modeling?

Ewel: Back in the day a friend of mine needed to make a project focused on alternative pictures and he asked me if I would be interested. Later I uploaded the pictures on my myspace profile and they had really good response, which surprised me a little. After that my parents litteraly forced me to shoot my own photobook and make it commercial, but I didn`t feel right about doing commercial stuff and felt more like doing alternative projects. Then I started to cooperate with artists with similar style and after some time I was asked to work on new and bigger projects.


Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Ewel: 87 – 62 – 87 and I am 172 cm tall. I had to measure myself now because of this question (laugh).


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

Ewel: Being herself, being ambitious and never believing that her maximum was reached. Nothing more.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you as a model?

Ewel: It is hard to say as there is always something interesting happening around me. After some time it has become hard to realize what would other people consider interesting.


Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers you've worked with and who are some you would like to work with?

Ewel: I worked with many great people but the most fun we had with my favorite photographers who also became my good friends: Hellmet photography, Marius Sachtikus photography and Wiki Bekeova photography. And who would I like to work with? Tough question, I enjoy working with creative people, but probably Viona Art and Sylwia Makris.


Sinical Magazine: who is more of an influence: Bettie Page or Dita Von Teese?

Ewel: I`d say Dita.

Sinical Magazine: Who are the top 5 alt. models, currently?

Ewel: I`m not good in remembering names, but Makani Terror and Marthy Luck are easy to remember for their looks.


Sinical Magazine: Who are the top 5. alt. photographers, currently?

Ewel: Ed Purnomo, Silent View, Sylwia Makris and for sure Michal Hellmet and Marius Sachtikus.

 

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what is your main fetish?

Ewel: As long as my wallet allows it I`d buy anything that I consider nice, but I'll never have enough shoes and handbags as every girl.

Sinical Magazine: Who are some of your favorite designers?

Ewel: Dracula clothing, Oh la latex, Tattoo addict clothing, Unicornell... And I love cooperating with the young talents out there, all those who have the guts to do something on their own, even if it is DIY merch at the beginning.


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

Ewel: There is quite a lot of music genres that I like – alternative, electro, postrock, synthpop... It`s quite a lot, really. I love the voice of karin dreijer andersson.


Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in your city (Slovakia)?

Ewel: Comparing to other countries the society here is conservative, there are not many people with extravagant image – people dress causal, don`t get much into tattoos or piercings. Those who go out dressed as they like it are ussualy to be pointed at. And then, if someone inclinates into the alt/fetish scene they all dress the same as if there was a dress code for the subculture.


Sinical Magazine: Where can Sinical readers see more of your work?

Ewel: Best way is to check my facebook page facebook.com/ewelofficial here and then where I always post my new work.

Hannah Ghore Interview

Hannah Ghore is a San Antonio, Texas-based alternative model, artist, designer, MUA, and more.  

 

Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alternative modeling?

Hannah Ghore: I seem to have an overflow of creative outlets that need to be fulfilled and I just have to create art or I get really restless sometimes even depressed. Modeling, for me, is one of the many ways I do this. Be it for one of my concepts or someone else’s. For my concepts where I am the designer, MUA, hair dresser, and model I am constantly finding myself pushed to new limits of creativity to go above and beyond. It gets frustrating sometimes but the results are so worth it in the end.

 

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Hannah Ghore: Well I’m a 32b, 18w, 33h! Oh wait no those are the measurements I want to be. I’m a 32b, 25w, 33h, and I’m 5’7”.

Sinical Magazine: A lot of your photo sets seem inspired by horror films and Tim Burton movies? What are some of your favorite films or what films have influenced your work?

 

Hannah Ghore: Tim Burton is definitely someone I pull inspiration from. He knows how to create macabre works and yet make them still appealing to normal people too. I’ve pulled inspiration from his stop motions and just his normal art even. The shapes, shadows, stripes, and swirls are really aesthetically pleasing to my eyes so I try to pull from that but still make it my own. As far as horror goes I eat, breath, and sleep it. Every night the last thing I watch before going to bed is a horror movie which, causes me to have what most people would call nightmares but those same dark images are part of the spring of creativity in me. I’m still hoping to one day find a team who can help turn me into a Clive Barker Cenobite.

 

Sinical Magazine: Have you always been drawn to the macabre?


Hannah Ghore: I wouldn’t say always. I grew up in a really conservative house hold so all things spooky and macabre were strictly prohibited but I’ve always been a bit odd. One of my first memories as a child was telling my mother I wanted blue hair like a mermaid and I got in trouble for drawing “tattoos” on my skin all the time. I think the first time I really started falling for things of a darker nature was when I discovered Edgar Allen Poe as a preteen along with the beautifully macabre ideal of vampires. From there it just grew into an obsession.

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you as a model?


Hannah Ghore: Well I’ve only been modeling since March 2011 but so far the time that took the cake for “interesting” was when I, along with a few other models, modeled for my friends clothing line here in San Antonio. We were all dressed up in alternative styles with crazy colored hair walking around down town SA looking for locations to randomly shoot at. When we came to the Alamo there were some other tourists taking photos so we waited until they walked off to stat posing. Unfortunately the security guard was not fond of our attire and not only refused to let us take any photos on the grounds but also told us he would call the police if we didn’t leave. It’s not the first time I’ve been discriminated for being different but it was the first time I ever got kick off the premises for such a thing. It’s a sad judgmental world we live in but what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger right?

 

 

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers and designers that you've worked with?


Hannah Ghore: I’ve been privileged to get the chance to work with some of Texas’s finest. To name a few of my favorites Jade Noir Photography, Stretch Photos, Obscuri, Eddie Hernandez, etc. As far as designers go I am currently looking to work with more but I’ve modeled for Jupiter Moon 3, Cruz Jewelry Designs, The Kat’s Meow, Azrael's Accomplice, and Batcave Designs. I also model some of my own designs for my alternative accessory business Crypt Keeper Creations.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what is your main fetish?

 

Hannah Ghore: I have a HUGE fetish for corsets, boots, and wigs if that last one counts. I only own one corset from Jupiter Moon 3 but I plan on buying a lot more and hopefully a full costume someday soon…or in my darkest fantasies at least. I’ve bought and own a few other corsets but her custom ones fit like a second skin. It makes you feel so sexy and who doesn’t want that?

 

Sinical Magazine: In your opinion, Who are the top 5 alt. models, currently?


Hannah Ghore: I’d have to go with my idols Razor Candi, Ophelia Overdose, Twigglet, Iska Ithil, and the mother of us all Elvira.

 

Sinical Magazine: And Who are the top 5. alt. photographers, currently?


Hannah Ghore: It’s really hard to pick just 5 quite honestly but here goes. Fairy-Tales-Photography from France, Dangerously Dolly, Le Mew Photography, Jade Noir Photography, and Laura Dark, etc.

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


Hannah Ghore: I listen to a variety of music depending on my mood or what I’m doing. I love and support the music scene whole heartedly. To name a few choice bands I listen to off the top of my head, Depeche Mode, Oingo Boingo, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, The Misfits (Danzig-Graves era), Blitzkid, The Cruxshadows, Lady Gaga etc.

 

Sinical Magazine: Outside of modeling, what are some of your interests?


Hannah Ghore: Well I already stated my little side accessory business. I also paint and sculpt. Art is my main passion but I also enjoy playing with makeup and dressing up to go out dancing. When the music plays and I’m on the dance floor no one else is in my little world. It’s just me, the music, and my body thriving together as one being. Sounds a little strange but when I hear music I have a need to dance, unless it’s dubstep then I have a need to get as far away as possible!

Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in San Antonio?


Hannah Ghore: I don’t really partake in the Fetish scene around here much so I suppose I have nothing to report for them. As for the alternative scene it’s pretty much like any other I’ve been around. You know drama, hookups, breakups, makeups, gossip, the norm. But I will say there are some really awesome people who try their best to make the environment fun for everyone (new and old) and choose to ignore the negative. I am happy to call San Antonio home for now and I pretty much always enjoy going out to events or shows and hanging out with the spooky locals.

Drakaena Interview

Photo by Frederic Noyon. Make up : Chloé Paccard.


Drakaena is an alternative model based in Lyon, France.


Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alternative modeling?

Drakaena: I started modeling when I was 15. I met my best friend at school and she starting doing photography so we started to work together. At that time I had a dark and gothic style and so did she. So we made pictures that look like us, not really “fashion photography”. Since I have built up an important wardrobe including corsets, gothic clothes, leather, high heels, new rock, demonia, etc… It’s only last year that I’ve started to try lots of different directions in modeling, such as pinup, bodypaint, shibari, fetish etc… I love the weird and alternative style.


Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Drakaena: I'm not very skinny, I've got what needed where needed and that's what people like. I measure 1m60 for 56 kg, clothing 38 (EU) and 37-38 for shoes , 92 breast, 72 waist, 92 hip (in centimeters). I don’t know how much it's in UK system.

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

Drakaena: For me it’s very important to have my own personality. Knowing how to innovate, create and feel what I do. Giving my best in any circumstances, and transmitting my emotions. It’s not interesting for me to model just for modeling. Sure I like making beautiful pictures but most of all to put my soul in it, the emotions and my personality. And believe in what I do.

 

Sinical Magazine: What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you as a model?

Drakaena: All my experiences as model are interesting : the people I met, the events, the fashion shows and the collaborations. Recently I liked the “Bal des suplices” party. Where I could do my tribal fusion dance show. I met really nice people and other models, one of them was Ophelia Overdose. And I also paraded for a latex brand. It was really fun.

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers you've worked with and who are some you would like to work with?

Drakaena: I’ve worked with some not famous but very talented photographers. They found the way to find something special in me, capture the emotions, create a scene, and it’s because of them that I could move forward. If you want some names: Mori Gena, Melle Phenix, Frederic Noyon, FotoNerdz, Eol Neruhur and John Genove. I also worked with Julien Reynaud, a professional photographer and the organizer of the “Bal des suplices”, that is the biggest fetish party in Lyon for now.


I would really like to work with Nath Sakura, I absolutely love her work and her universe. I also love the work of Delphine Ayache.


And more in the fetish style : Mark Black and Peter Czernich

 

Sinical Magazine: Who is more of an influence: Bettie Page or Dita Von Teese?

Drakaena: Dita Von Teese of course. First of all she’s beautiful, she has a great plastique, a lots of class, elegance and charm. Her pictures are wonderful. She is a real model.

Sinical Magazine: Who are the top 5 alt. models, currently?

Comptesse Lea, a French model that does great pictures too. A very good make-up artist and performer. Also very kind.

Nea Dune, I found her beautiful and also very nice.

Kay Morgan, she’s so gorgeous.

Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what is your main fetish?

Drakaena: My main fetish would be the latex , the way it reacts to the light. It’s perfect to line up the body and make great pictures. It gives always a domination or dominated effect, very sexy and the material is very pleasant to wear even if it's hard to get into.

 

Sinical Magazine: Who are some of your favorite designers?

Drakaena: I like Pandora Deluxe Latex, kaori’s latex dreams , Royal Black Couture & Corsetry, toxic vision, Westward Bound and many others but the list is too long to write them all.


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

Drakaena: I haven't been listening to a lot of music lately. But I like most of styles. Anything that's rock, metal, symphonic. I also don't mind more commercial songs so some times I even go to night clubs to dance .

 

Sinical Magazine: What is the alt/fetish scene like in your city?

Drakaena: The biggest annual fetish event in Lyon is “Bal des suplices”, but all year long there are some small fetish parties organized by the holders of “New Rock” and “Horsnorms” stores, and some events in the “Marquis Body Art” tattoo and piercing workshop. But I'm sure that there are more that I don't know about

 

Sinical Magazine: Where can Sinical readers see more of your work?
