I want to make this blog as diverse and interesting as possible, so I had the idea of asking my babe Sara Corpsie (aka Corpse of Cheer) who dwells in then alternative modelling world, if I could maybe ask her a couple of questions and feature her in the blog. This turned out to be so fun! First, it gives me the chance to post something new and interesting to you guys and also to help my friend show her work (which is truly amazing, I am her fan nº1!). I also feel that this post in very inspirational, since she talks about the difficulties she had to overcome and the way she never stopped believing in herself, her abilities and her dreams. I hope you enjoy the interview, and please show her some love! She most definitely deserves it!
(This is my favourite picture of her of all time. She looks like an Amazon warrior!)

What is your motivation for modelling? Do feel that with mainstream sites like suicidegirls.com, alt modelling is becoming mainstream?
Were you a fan of body art (tattoos, piercings, body mods) before modelling, and is body art a big part of the alt modelling industry?
Who are your icons and main style inspirations?
Queen Mab, Morgan Le Fay (Merlin) Nancy Downs, Lirio (The Craft) Elizabeth (Frankenstein) Morticia Addams (The Addams Family) Roxie Hart, Velma Kelly (Chicago) Santanico Pandemonium (From Dusk Till Dawn) Lisa Rowe, Susanna Kaysen (Girl, Interrupted) Dita Von Teese, Marilyn Manson, Helena Bonham Carter, Angelina Jolie, Marilyn Monroe, Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, Emilie Autumn, Razor Candi, Mothmouth, to name a few...
This list is very old, but I have to say that my taste in style is mainly inspired on these people and almost everything they have done... they are more of an ethereal inspiration rather than a practical one.
