Elerinna Von Wittelsbach is a France-based alternative model.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first alternative or fetish magazine you came across?
Elerinna Von Wittelsbach: I actually got one publication in a magzine and one interview on a photographer's blog. My publication in the magazine digitalustmagazine was at my beginning in the modelling so I was so glad and grateful to appear in my first magazine. Then I made an interview for the photographer's blog Art TF, a great photographer with a beautiful imagination.
Sinical Magazine: How did you become an alternative model?
Elerinna Von Wittelsbach: My mother was a model when she was young, she transmitted her passion to me. More over I'm a student in history of art and archology so art and particulary photography is an expression of emotions for me. Then I have a proposition by a photographer in 2010 in south of France and I did it.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Elerinna Von Wittelsbach: I'm not very tall and skinny but I'm proud of my forms and this is what people like in me. So, I measure 163 cm for 56 kg, 90 breast, 71 waist, and 95 hip (in centimeters).
