What is the meaning behind your model alias?
My modeling name is my middle name and Bathory is taken from the Hungarian Countess Erzsébet (Elizabeth) Báthory. She murdered over 600 girls and bathed in their blood because she believed it would restore her youth. I am fascinated by her and the fact that she was the world's first female serial killer.
Your a metal model, do you like all the bands you have modeled for thus far?
I sure do! I don't model for bands that I don't like. When I do merchandise modeling for a band I also like promoting them and their music. I wouldn't promote a band I'm not in to.
How did you get your start in the modeling business?
I have wanted to be a model since I was about 7 years old. I grew up and realized I didn't fit the standard, typical model so I let that dream go for awhile. Then I got into the alternative scene and through myspace I saw that there were pages dedicated to alternative models and beauty. So, I got excited and started working on my dream again of becoming a model.
What can we expect from ElenaBathory.net as opposed to what is already on Bloodgoddess.com?
You can expect to see tons of exclusive photos not seen anywhere else including my erotic nude sets. Also, fetish videos and fans will be able to purchase uncensored photos and posters of me.
What advice would you give to an up and coming model who wants to do what you do? Specifically, becoming a Merch model for metal bands.
I would tell them to be assertive and contact bands that they would want to work for. Also, keep an eye out for modeling contests that bands will sometimes have.

Has there ever been a time in your modeling career where you just wanted to say "fuck it"?
Only once for about two seconds lol. When I started getting stalked and harassed by two other models, I started to see how ugly the industry can be. I can't stand jealousy among females, especially other artists, but I realized in this industry you have to have a thick skin and the haters in the end gave me even more motivation to keep doing what I love to do. The best revenge is to stay focused in your work and keep doing amazing things:)
People often assume that because your a metal model that you worship Satan,do you consider yourself a Satanist? If not, how do you deal with people who think you are and if so, what misconception would you like to lay to rest?
I worship evil he he, but I'm not a Satanist. I don't really have people coming up to me asking me if I'm a satanist. To me Satanism is like another form of religion and I loathe religions.
As a little girl growing up did you listen to metal?
As a kid in the 80's I listened to a lot of hair/glam metal and classics like Van Halen, Motley Crue and Skid Row because my brother used to watch their videos on TV. As I grew into my teenage years I started getting into the more heavier metal.
Who do you draw inspiration from in the modeling community?
I am a huge fan of Masuimi Max! I'm also a big fan of Madeleine Horn. I also get my inspiration from my fans. There are a few close fans out there who have always shown me great support. You know who you are!:)
Is there anything that you would like to add or promote?
I would like to promote my t-shirt/underwear line, Metal Vixen Threads. I just revealed a new design that I will soon be looking for a gorgeous model to model it for me:) You can check out the new design on my blog.
