Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where?
Carissa White: No where special, on a late night in January. Where are you currently located? Los Angeles.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first magazine that you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?
Carissa White: I don’t really remember. All I do remember is at age 15 or 16 my friend from high school asked me to model for her portfolio, and I’ve been modeling since. Actual modeling work came way later.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in pin-up/fetish modeling?
Carissa White: Well I was already in the alty scene, and then started partying at fetish clubs. One day the owner of one saw me in the party photos from his events and asked me to model for him, and it kind of went from there.
Sinical Magazine: What do you think makes a model stand apart from others?
Carissa White: Models who actually have talent verses those who lack it. Those with a unique beauty, and a model who brings a certain emotion into their photos that others can’t.
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Carissa White: Everything! Everything has to be on point.
Sinical Magazine: Clothing wise, what are your fetishes and why?
Carissa White: I’m super into all clothing, but lately my current clothing fetish is beautiful (pricey) lingerie. I cant stop buying it. All sorts. Why? I’m not quite sure. I suppose I appreciate looking amazing in it and I like walking around like a little sex God. When I get new pieces in the mail I normally stare at them in awe for quite some time.
Sinical Magazine: The theme of this issue is nylons. What is the appeal of nylons to you?
Carissa White: Same as lingerie I suppose. It just looks amazing. If your having a bad leg day, wearing nylons are perfect.
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Carissa White: I fluctuate quite a bit. I believe my bust is currently at 32b, and my waist is at 23 inches, and my hips are 38 inches.
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Carissa White: 6 1/2- 7.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Carissa White: In my iPod now I have Deftones, American Head Charge, Thy Art is Murder, Marilyn Manson, Collide, Cradle of Filth, NiN, Hocico, SlipKnot, Lana Del Rey, Type O Negative, Zeromancer, Massive Attack, plus more and even some hip hop stuff.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modeling, what do you like to do for fun?
Carissa White: I don’t really think I have much fun anymore. I work all the time. My extent of fun lately has been wining and dining, and maybe once in a blue moon I will visit a theme park.
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?
Carissa White: Well, I bought my first piece of music equipment for a music project I’ve been wanting to do for two years. I don’t play, but I sing. A little unsure of how it’s going to go but that’s where my attention will be. |
