M: What inspired you to create videos on YouTube?

C: When I was just pinup modeling, I styled myself for all of my shoots and girls would always ask how I was doing certain styles. So I made a YouTube channel as a supplement to that!

M: Were you surprised by the response your videos received?

C: Absolutely! I thought  “oh maybe I will get a few hundred girls to follow this” and now I just top 275,000 and 17 million views.

M: Is the process to create your videos lengthy?

C: Totally depends on the video! Style videos always take longer because there is a lot of outfit changing. Tutorials are probably the quickest to film because it is just one angle and a straight through image.

M: Have you always been interested in modeling?

C: Not really… It kind of just happened and it was fun so I kept doing it.

M: If not, what did you aspire to be?

C: I went to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor originally. After doing that for two years, I realized it was too emotionally draining, so I went back to school for business. I was never totally sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I didn’t want to be stuck in an office cubicle.

M: What attracted you to the retro look than any other?

C: I love the classic style. I love how beautiful and feminine it makes me feel. I love that it takes actual effort.

M: Is there another style you’d like to try?

C: I am kind of a chameleon. I always try to mix my vintage inspired ideas with other interesting looks. I pay attention to current fashion and I also like aspects of goth, punk – I just like to be creative and interesting.

M: What are some of your favorite retro ladies/gents and why?

C: Hmm, not to sure how to answer this one! I don’t really follow many “public figure” type people so I don’t know what is really happening in the “scene”. Most of who I follow are either friends or companies. I wouldn’t say I have a favorite. I embrace variety!

M: What is the most rewarding thing about what you do?

C: Meeting girls and having them tell me stories of how I have inspired them in any way – big or small. It is so amazing to be able to travel all over the world and actually meet these girls that are otherwise just screennames. I love hugging all the hot babes that follow me!

M: Are there any negatives?

C: It is exhausting! But in a good way- it is totally worth it. But, I put a lot of myself out there and sometimes overextend. A lot of girls that do what I do don’t interact with their followers. I try to answer as many messages and comments as I possibly can and sometimes it takes me away from things I need to focus on in my personal life. But, I just want to be there for the ladies that need me!

M: What inspired you to create the deed of the week?

C: My main goal is to be a positive light in a sea of (going to be really honest here) super mean girls. I spent so many years watching girls tear each other down – and watching the girls at the top of the “scene” be rude and catty publicly. I realized that the younger girls were becoming this way because that was the only examples of how to behave they were being exposed too. So, I figured I would do my small little part to try not to be an asshole and set a positive example. It ISN’T cool to be mean.

M: Have you always been self confident?

C: Not always. I was the typical insecure teenager. Even in my early 20s I was still trying to figure out who I was and I even had a small period of being that mean girl myself. I think it is natural to lash out when you have no confidence. It takes the light off of you and throws it on whoever you are picking on. But then I realized that wasnt who I wanted to be, so I changed.

M: What do you think every lady and gent could do to become more self confident and pass on positivity?

C: I think self confidence starts with how we treat other people. It feela genuinely good to be nice to others. Which is a lot of what I hope to do with my deed of the week. I feel like it is easy to tumble down the rabbit hole of others ( even if it’s online ) and once you fall too far down that rabbit hole, you just don’t feel good about yourself. You just can’t. The more young people that see their role models being nice and positive, the more that positivity spreads!

Hello my devils & ghouls!

My lover and I have uploaded this new video giving everyone updates. I have neglected to post Artemia because I have been so busy this past week getting ready for my weekend! It is my birthday weekend! And what better way to celebrate than in the dark dungeons of horror?

September is Silent Film Month!

1

Devils & Ghouls,

I thank you before hand for your time. I have decided to go through with my plans I have mentioned earlier in a previous blog of going through specialty months. September is when my birthday is and it’s when the first signs of autumn become aware to the human eye. My biggest inspiration for all my creativity is the Silent Era. Now in silent film month, I won’t just review horror films but I will review the actors/actresses/directors…. jumbling it up a bit.

My passion for music comes from a mixture of 4 things: Type O Negative, Ronnie James Dio, Vintage Looney Tunes, and Silent Films! I will start up on Friday with this month of Silent Era!

 

Horrific Wishes.

Break out the Victrola!

AtHello Creeps!

Today I’d like to share a favorite past time of mine. I adore anything historical or vintage! I have to say I inherited that from my dad. I remember being around 9 or 10, and our area had a power outage either do to a winter storm or a fallen line. Naturally, we started up our kerosine lamps and nibbled on cookies around. My younger brother and I would always try to read or write and contemplate what it would be like to be living in the era when electricity was first put into houses! Could you imagine?

My dad came into the room and it was the first time I laid my eyes on a Victrola.

At first, I didn’t know what it was and my dad explained to me that we were going to be listening to some classic records. When I say classic, I mean way back near the early 1900s. We have a copy of Cal Stewart’s comedy recordings from 1901! I have to say I don’t remember if I laughed as hard as I did that night ever again.

From Google Images.

 

It had to be the most interesting thing to me! I don’t know why! I just loved the sound quality and the corny jokes. The way you heard the fuzz on the recording. It sounded so genuine to me. This is what brought my love and obsession for records! That day the power went out!

Cal Stewart was born in 1859 and died in 1919. He was a pioneer in vaudeville and early recording works.

Here’s one of the sides of the record to share with you creeps. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

 

 

The Bat (1926 & 1959) – Review

4

Hello Creeps.

Today we are going to review the film “The Bat” both the 1926 and the 1959 versions. As the vintage film nerd that I am, I have to say that I recommend both versions to the horror or mystery fanatic. Let’s begin with the beloved 1926 version shall we?

The Bat (1926)

First off, you can’t exactly call this a horror or why it’s under “vampire” I do not know becuase it’s more of a comedy/mystery/thriller. The eccentric maid in the film is who gives us the comedic effect. The story line of the film is that a masked criminal dresses up as a gigantic bat figure and terrorizes guests of a house that is being rented out by a well-known mystery writer. The film is based off the play by Avery Hopwood. Miss Cornelia Van Gorder is the famous mystery writer who rents the house to continue working on a novel. She is accompanied by her faithful maid, Lizzie Allen who was played by Louise Fazenda – whose over reactions made the character all more eccentric and comical. The murderer is interested in the wealth that is hidden within the house and will get rid of anyone in their way. What I like most about the 1926 version is the effects. For back in the day, these effects are pretty kick ass and it’s always a marvelous thing to see old school films with such marvelous effects without the aid of computers and green screens. They are proof that we don’t need to make everything digital! The actors and actresses within the film expressed their roles accordingly. Meaning, there wasn’t too much of the over expressions that you saw in many silent films. (Silent films actors/actresses were so goddamn talented! 🙂 ) For me, this film pulled me into the story and I really enjoyed the shadiness of the film. Honestly, a film like this belongs in the silent film era. Could you imagine the people seeing it for the first time on the screen?! It would have been down right terrifying for them to see this considering it wasn’t a monster film at all!

If you’d like to check out the 1926 version, I found the full movie on YouTube:

 

The Bat (1959)

Well, you already know the story line with the paragraph above. I must say for this version they couldn’t have picked better actors and actresses to play within this version. They had the marvelous, Vincent Price as Doctor Malcolm Wells and the ever so classy, Agnes Moorehead as Cornelia Van Gorder. Their actor and actress choice was perfect because they fit the roles so well. You could pictures Agnes as Cornelia. It didn’t seem like she was acting at all, but being herself. Mr.Price of eerie nature plays the doctor who is suspected to be the bat. When I first saw this version, I was immediately hooked. Although, I had seen the silent film version first and knew the story line, this “talkie” version was as amazing as the original. The acting was perfect and when I watched it, I had a list of suspects in my head, checking them off as the film went along. It takes you for a lot of twists and turns until you reach the end. This is an instant thriller classic. The “who-done-it” theme song of this version is quite catchy! (It was stuck in my head for a few hours.)

If you’d like to see the 1959 version of The Bat, I found the Full movie on YouTube here:
