Sinical Magazine: When were you born and where? Where are you currently located?
Synesthesia: I was born on a very cold winter morning. Right when the first snow fell on the rooftops of Amsterdam. Now I am located near the sea, which gives me a very nice view. But I do still visit Amsterdam often.
Sinical Magazine: What was the first fetish/or alt. magazine that you came across that made you want to become a model? If not a magazine, what inspired you?
Synesthesia: For me it was all about being creative, and later on embodying my more sensual side into it as well. I could definitely say that my first inspirations as for latex modeling came from the internet. Websites like deviantart.com which I used to browse relentlessly at the age of 12 opened my view to great girls like Ulorin Vex and Mosh and the beautiful creations they were wearing. Modelling wasn’t part of the plan yet, but from then on I knew there was something about the scene I loved and admire.
Sinical Magazine: How did you get started in alt/fetish modelling?
Synesthesia: It was an accident waiting to happen, really. When I was 18 I figured the logical step after years of life model drawing classes was to be on the other side of the canvas for once. Around the same period, I realized that I could finally explore my kink side, so I got some addresses and dragged a friend along to Berlin to explore the fetish scene there. I felt so free and at home that about a year later that I decided to see if I could stand in fron of the camera and do the same. When I brought my latex tie and kinky attitude to the studio everything fell into place.
Sinical Magazine: From a model’s perspective, what do you think is the most important aspect of a photo?
Synesthesia: Personally I think it’s about seeing the picture as a whole, and thinking ‘what could, I, as a model, bring to this setting to make it even better? Soaking up the atmosphere and not being afraid of letting yourself go are important to me.
Sinical Magazine: How do you think the alt/fetish modelling scene has
evolved since you started?
Synesthesia: Oh, I wish I could say, but it’s only been so short! Where I would like it to go though, I hope we get more fresh and open minded people into the scene and carry on the same attitude of acceptance and good fun!
Sinical Magazine: What are your measurements?
Sinical Magazine: What is your shoe size?
Synesthesia: UK 4 or EU 37.
Sinical Magazine: The fetish clothing focus of your photo set is on latex. What do you like about latex fetish clothing?
Synesthesia: Personally I love everything about latex. From the preparation, to the smell, and of course the feeling! I have been fantasizing about wearing it for years, and when I finally got to – it did not disappoint at all.
Sinical Magazine: What type of music do you listen to?
Synesthesia: Lots of 80s, new wave and post punk and the like.. For example I think the Sisters of Mercy, Siouxie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen are all amazing bands. Also I’ve rediscovered my love for goa. I love being able to mix in between scenes and meet cool people everywhere.
Sinical Magazine: Besides modelling, what do you like to do for fun?
Synesthesia: I love to draw, paint and go to music shows and art galleries. I have a very outgoing and bubbly side, and one that is a bit more quiet and cosy!
Sinical Magazine: Do you have any other upcoming projects you would like to mention?
Synesthesia: Right now I’m focused on many things.. Traveling, doing shows at awesome events like the German Fetish Ball and the Montreal Fetish Weekend. In my shoots I’m now trying to focus more on playfulness and my own fantasies. I’m full of ideas and can promise you it will be very exciting. So stay tuned!
