Model of the Week: Maegan Machine

August 1, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Maegan Machine is a model and gothic bellydancer. What exactly is a “gothic bellydancer”? Let me put it in Maegan’s own words: “I try to avoid traditional belly dancing as much as possible by incorporating a bed of nails and my… 4 ft ball python named VooDoo while moving my body to heavy music.”


A is for Arsenic 2011 Lookbook

July 12, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

The A is for Arsenic 2011 lookbook was recently released, and I’m pretty psyched about it. These dark, film-noir-inspired tees are available for men and women in a variety of really comfy-looking designs. The brand itself is the brainchild of the multi-talented Amelia Arsenic, graphic designer, jewelry and cosmetics creator, and a member of the band Angelspit.


When Lips Get Violent…

July 5, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Perhaps I’m just compensating for a lack of real tattoos, but I’ve been seeking out every single temporary tattoo cosmetic product on the market. For that reason, as soon as I found out these temporary lip tattoos from Violent Lips existed, I wasted no time trying them out.

 So if you’re thinking to yourself, “Lip tattoos? Those sound sort of complicated…” then you’re partially correct. You can’t just slap em on, add a little water and call it a day. These take a bit of measuring and cutting, a whole lot of patience and practice, and a far steadier hand than I apparently have. If you want to know what I’m talking about, watch the tutorial here.

But all that said, they sure as hell delivered some dramatic results, which is exactly what I was seeking out.


Model of the Week: Keycifer Black, revisited

June 20, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Recently I talked to one of our previous Models of the Week, Keycifer Black. Key is a model and burlesque performer who tours with the troupe, The Peek-A-Boo Review. She’s no stranger to the public eye, as she’s been dancing for years and modeling since she was about 15. I might also mention that Key’s acted in a number of music videos and films, and has a former Miss Catwalk Tragedy title under her belt.


And with that being said, it’s time for Key to enlighten us about the world of burlesque…

What originally got you interested in burlesque?

Cabaret and the circus have always been of interest, so of course it was expected. Independent, strong-willed, “I do what I want and I do it well” women are my idols. It was time to be set free.


Meet Inked and Up-and-Coming Model, Dani B.

May 31, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Meet Dani Bathory: alternative model, writer, music composer, and hip hop artist. You might know Dani from her previous work with the death metal band, The Funeral Pyre, or else maybe you saw her recently featured on MTV’s Fine Ink series, or as Inked Magazine’s Inked Girl of the Day. While certain aspects of Dani’s career are still in the early stages, a lot of things came together for her this year. She released her first single “Your Favorite Bitch,” became a music columnist for Tattoo Hodge Podge, and you can spot her as the star of this year’s Aggrolite’s video, “Complicated Girl.” And, yknow, she also fits a day job in there somewhere…

FV: You told me that your first modeling gig was only about eight months ago, for Tattoo Hodge Podge. When you started out, was modeling something that came naturally to you, or did it take a while to build up a level of comfort?

DB: It did take a little while to get comfortable in front of the camera because that is when you feel most vulnerable. My coworker at the time had been modeling for years and he told me the most important thing to do was just relax…and all the photographers I worked with kept telling me I was a natural, so that definitely gave me a boost of confidence.
