Sinical Magazine: What was the first pinup, fetish, or alternative magazine you came across?

Suzi Rubbish:  The first fetish/alt magazine I saw was ages ago, it was an issue of Bizarre Magazine. At the time I was really starting to explore fetishism and alternative subcultures that were different from my own. I was blown away and inspired by the magazine’s content. I decided to start modeling for fun shortly after that. I took a long break after I had my daughter, but found new inspiration in horror rag Gore Noir Magazine in early 2012. I have been shooting everything from artistic portraits to gory horror keeping my shooting schedule booked up ever since.

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

Suzi Rubbish: I got my start when my best friend got her camera. She quickly grew tired of shooting scenery and still life and wanted to move onto models. I agreed to pose for her and became her muse. Sadly she and her husband were relocated due to his job and I haven’t gotten the chance to shoot with her in years. Shortly after her move another friend who had also just begun her photography career asked me to model some vintage lingerie for her Ebay store. After that experience I was hooked and started getting offers for small modeling jobs fairly frequently.

Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?

Suzi Rubbish: I’m a proud curvy girl! Bust: 34C/D, Waist: 25.5”, Hips: 38.5”, Height 5’6”

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: I think there is a lot to be said for models who are creative do it yourselfers. It’s easier to just show up and get pampered than it is to be involved in the creative process, but I am so much more impressed by girls who can contribute by doing their own hair, makeup, and/or wardrobe! Ophelia Overdose is an extreme example of a model who can do it all and she does it sickeningly well! I also think a positive attitude and a little humility go a long way. No one likes to work with snotty bitches and unfortunately there are a lot of them out there! As far as looks that stand out to me, I’m a huge fan slightly awkward or unconventionally beautiful models who find their own brand of beauty and have the courage to show it to the world. Who wants to look just like every other alternative model out there?

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

Suzi Rubbish: I don’t know that there has been any one instance that stands out as being especially interesting. I like to get a little thrill now and then and do not usually ask permission when using abandoned locations. I have been caught trespassing before, but haven’t been arrested for it yet. *knocks on wood* I’m super clumsy too which makes shooting with me rather amusing. I fall at least once or twice during a typical shoot, that number can greatly increase based on location and shoes though! I warn every photographer I work with about my lack of grace and ask them to try and catch me in the act! So far no one has succeeded, my falls are sneaky!

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: I’ve had the honor of working with some truly incredible photographers! Some of my favorites include; Redrum Collaboration, Obscuri, Raven Red, and Vanessa Velazquez. I would love to get the opportunity to work with Le Mew Photography, 666 Photography, Laura Dark, Falt Photographics, Chris Visual, and (my not so secret photographer crush) Dangerously Dolly!

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

Suzi Rubbish: Zlata, Ofelia Overdose, Mosh, Razor Candi, and Greta Macabre are my 5 faves!

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: Oh my goodness, it’s so hard to pick just 5! Ummmmm… Fairy-Tales-Photography, Redrum Collaboration, Laura Dark, Falt Photographics, Le Mew Photography.

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: It’s totally a toss up, I am addicted to shoes! I have an extensive shoe collection that is constantly growing! Shoes, particularly heels are so sexy! I also love corsets! There’s nothing more sensual in the world than a beautifully crafted corset, and the best part is they have the power to make every woman regardless of shape or size feel like the goddess she is!

Sinical Magazine: Who are some of your favorite designers?

Suzi Rubbish: I love couture fashion as well as alternative fashion so my taste in designers is eclectic! Some alt faves include; Jupiter Moon 3 Corsets and Cinched Tight Corsets (both of which also happen to make latex that is divine), Abigail Greydanus, Azreal’s Accomplice, Creepig Beauty Inc., Crypt Keeper Creations, Rockin’ Bones, and Iron Fist. Couture/Runway faves include; Alexander McQueen, Chanel (suits especially), Mikailee Alton, Christian Louboutin, and Jean Paul Gaultier.

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: I love music! I’ve always loved to sing and even studied vocal performance and opera in college. The amazing thing about music regardless of genre, is that it’s a universal language. I’ve spoken to musicians who have toured the world playing music and they’re amazed when they go to countries where people don’t speak a word of English and yet the entire crowd is singing along word for word. There are so many talented musicians all over the world who just want to be heard! Support live music wherever you are, you won’t be sorry! That said, I am a punk girl all the way! Some of my favorite bands are The Vandals, Lars Frederiksen and the Bastards, Propagandhi, NOFX, Rancid, Black Flag, and The Casualties! There’s something about angry boys playing impossibly fast music that makes my heart happy!

 

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

Suzi Rubbish: I’m from San Antonio, TX which is the 3rd largest city in the state. The weird thing is that for a city with well over 1 million people, it’s got a pretty small town feel. Most of the people in the alternative scene here know each other regardless of the subculture they identify themselves with. If you know one of us, you pretty much know us all! There is a decent live music scene here, but the fetish, horror, and burlesque scenes are still pretty small and slow growing. Luckily we are close enough to Austin, TX to commute for shows and other alt events that pop up through out the year!

Isabel Perez - Sinical Photo Shoot


I recently photographed Isabel Perez for an upcoming issue of Sinical. Isabel Perez is a Houston-based fashion model who is originally from Havana, Cuba. The location of this shoot was a mansion in Kemah, Texas right next to a beach. We did the shoot with 2 speed lights (Nikon SB-600 and Yongnuo YN-560) and Jason Walsh provided lighting assisstance. We were going to get some shots on the beach as the sun went down but the house ended up being more interesting.

More images from this shoot and a full interview with Isabel will be feature in Sinical #10 (July 2013).
