1. Tell us what you love about pinup?
The best thing about pinup for me is how inclusive it is. I love it that pinup celebrates everyone, and I’ve always felt welcomed by all the people that I’ve met through this part of my life. Pinup has really helped me find my look, and also built a lot of confidence about who I am and that it’s OK to be passionate about dressing up and having fun even as a gender fluid individual.!
2. Is there a best/worst experience you’d like to share?
My best experience was meeting @heathervalentineuk in person. We were both shooting in Birmingham at the same time, and she made time to have a drink with me and the make-up artist I was working with (@gypsylady). We had an awesome chat, and it was incredible to meet someone famous from the pinup industry, especially as she was so down-to-earth. I’m such a big fan of her! My worst experience is straightforward, it’s taking the make-up off and going back to my drab life.
3. What exciting projects do you have coming up?
I have a very exciting project in the works, in September I’ll be doing a cosplay shoot at @dollhousepohotographyuk, and I’m really going for it. I love mashing things up, a Friday the 13th themed set, of me both as a Camp Crystal Lake counsellor, and as Jason Vorhees previously unknown sister, Jenny Vorhees! I’ve been painting a hockey mask in preparation. Also a shoot as Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, which will be a challenge.
4. Do you have a tip that you feel is important for models/photographers?
I’m very much the amateur, but for what it’s worth, I think it’s important to start off playing to your strengths and doing what you feel comfortable with. It’s great to push boundaries and try new things – it’s my favourite part of pinup! But I do think that it’s important to build up your confidence first and go from there.
