Sinical Magazine: How did you come up with the name 'Sister Sinister'?
Sister Sinister: Actually I wasn't the one that came up with the name. A friend of mine, Ronnie, who also designed my first logo, came up with the name during a photoshoot we were doing. He was doing really cool body paint on me for a Sin City themed shoot, and laughed and said that we should call me Sister Sinister from now on. And so we did.
Sinical Magazine: What motivated you to start modeling?
Sister Sinister: I never really planned to start modelling, it just happened by chance. I had kind of a camera fobia actually, I was really uncomfortable in front of the camera. So it started as some kind of personal development thing, I decided to do a shoot with a friend/phototographer of mine to try to get get over my fears. I actually had heaps of fun during the shoot and the photos turned out alright. After that I did another shoot and created a profile on a community site for models and photographers here in Sweden, and after that I got requests from local photographers and it just kept on going. Since it went so well while just having fun I decided to put more effort in it and see where it could go. And I'm still having fun!

Sinical Magazine: What attracts you to fetish modeling?
Sister Sinister: Of course the outfits and the sexy heels and all those things that I love. But mostly the creativ freedom it gives. There's no boundaries and right's and wrong's in this kind of modelling. You're just free to do what ever you feel like and it doesn't break any "rules". Also I'm free to be as curvy as I want, which is good because I love chocolate.
Sinical Magazine: What is the most important aspect of a photo to you?
Sister Sinister: That's hard to say. It depends on what kind of shoot it is. But it's very important that it's got some kind of 'hook'. Same as with all really good songs! Something that makes it special or catches my eye. Could be a really great composition, a color that pops or just a great general color tone that makes the image special. Or a great expression. Also the genera quality of the photo. I prefer a nice slick image with not too much things in the picture that distracts.
Sinical Magazine: What has been your favorite fetish or pinup outfit that you've worn for a shoot?
Sister Sinister: That's a really tough question.. I have worn so many amazing outfits! And so many different styles..from really crazy spikey catsuits to gorgeous gowns and plain lingerie. I like the more advanced outfits, with lots of different parts and that is some kind of character based outfit or has a theme. I like to be a litte bit theatrical and become someone else of a fiction figure during my shoots. But one of my absolute favourite outfits is something just as simple as a black bra and thong together with smokey grey stockings and long gloves from Latexa. I got that outfit in 2008 I think when I did my first product shooting for them and it has been a favourite since then.

Sinical Magazine: You've modeled for many different companies. Who is your favorite designer?
Sister Sinister: Another hard question to answer. ha ha. I like so many of them for different reasons. They all have their special style and great quality. I really love Westward Bound which is a brand I have been working with for years now, and are still doing shoots for. They have a huge range of both men's and women's latex and corsets. My other favourites are HMS latex from Paris. For their gorgeous designs and color choises and great sense of style. I also have to mention House of Harlot for their flawless work and crazy and well fitting designs. As well as Inner Sanctum and Sweden's own Naucler Design of course.
And the people behind these companies are even lovelier than their products, so that makes the choises a little bit easier.
Sinical Magazine: what was your first magazine publication and which publication are you most proud of?
Sister Sinister: I actually got two publications at the same time and they were my first ones. Two covers of two magazines in March 2008. I was pretty excited I remember. One was the cover of a Swedish lifestyle magazine called 'Inspiration'. I was wearing a crazy head piece that the makeup artist, Jessica Lundberg, had made out of wire and old stay ups. Cool and very different! Not to mention heavy. The other publication was a cover and feature in Bizarre magazine, which of course was super cool! I'm very proud of all my publications and very grateful. One that has been very special to me and that I have worked hard to get is my cover and feature in Marquis Magazine. I got it last year (2011) in June and it really means a lot to me because that was one of the goals I put up for myself when I started modelling. I am very grateful to everyone I have worked with to get that.
And I'm super proud of this feature in Sinical Magazine!
Sinical Magazine: You're from Australia. What's it like there?
Sister Sinister: I have only been in Australia for a year and have seen far from everything I would like to see. It's an amazing country with lovely people and nature. They have heaps of amazing birds that are social and great surf. It's also really easy being healthy there because of the nature and all the things they can grow locally. Not as good if you're in the fetish scene or trying to model latex. It's sooo hot!

Sinical Magazine: What is the fetish and pinup scene like there?
Sister Sinister: I actually didn't explore that very much when I was there. I wanted a total cultural change for a while and focused on surfing and beach stuff instead. It doesn't seem to be veeery much going on tho. The only thing that I noticed without having to look for it is that they have a large burlesque scene. That is something I've never really gotten into tho. But it was nice to see! Also there is an area called King's Cross where there is some shops that sells fetish gear and so on. But I haven't heard of any bigger parties or anything. At least not in Sydney where I spent most of my time. But then again, I didn't look for it either. If anyone else knows, please inform me!
Sinical Magazine: You are originally from Sweden. Why did you move from Sweden to Australia?
Sister Sinister: I had always wanted to visit Australia. I mean, who wouldn't? It's an amazing country! Then I got the opportunity to take a year off from work in Sweden, so I decided to get a working/holiday visa for a year and go explore Australia. Who knows when the chance would come again? If ever.
Sinical Magazine: where is your dream location for a photo shoot?
Sister Sinister: I would love to shoot in a huge old style english mansion. With lots of land and stables and lovely gardens. And horses! Or a beautiful tropical paradise. There's many different locations I'd love to shoot in. Most of the places don't even exist other than in my fantasy.

Sinical Magazine: Who are some photographers you would like to work with someday and why?
Sister Sinister: Ohh tough question! They are too many! I'd love to work with Allan Amato someday soon. He's a fantastic and creative photographer and also a great and super funny person. Viva van story is and amazing female photographer that I'd love to work with. She know's how to make a perfect pin up picture in a erotic and sexy but never tacky way. Another photographer I'd love to work with is Jeffrey Scott. For his obvious epicness.
Sinical Magazine: You look amazing. How do you stay in shape?
Sister Sinister: I'm asking myself the same question everyday. I'm not as good at being healthy as I could be! I know how to be it's just so hard to stick to it since I'm a mad ice cream addict. Jokes aside.. I just eat healthy, meaning mostly fruit and veggies and nuts and things like that. Trying to avoid dairy, gluten and processed foods, and drinking as much water as I possibly can. I make sure to sleep propery and excercise as often as I can. That's it! I'm kind of being 80% good and 20% bad. Gotta live a litte and treat myself now and then with some Ben & Jerry's.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Sister Sinister: Oh yes. I think I have to count my Ben & Jerry's addiction to that. I just love my ice cream.
Also..I like to listen to Within Temptation when I'm at home cleaning. Don't tell anyone.
Sinical Magazine: Are you more dominant or submissive?
Sister Sinister: In my day to day life and how I handle things I'm more dominant. I like to take control and tell people what to do and how when it comes to many things. But when it comes to 'other things' I'm more submissive.
Sinical Magazine: What are some of your fetishes?
Sister Sinister: Something I was fascinated with really early and what kind of got me to end up in this business, bondage. High heels and wearing latex.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have a website?
Sister Sinister: I do! Hopefully I can get a new website going soon or at least make the one I've got more stylish and functional. But please visit www.sistersinister.se for a latex fix.
