Model Interview: Lily Monster

Lily Monster started modeling around the age of 15 and found that most photographers were interested in her look because of her always changing hairstyles during the 1980’s. Lily is a makeup artist, stylist, model and roller derby gal.

She models a mix of pinup and fetish but is also interested in doing more alternative and tattoo style shoots. Lily has been a makeup artist since 1998 and specialises in body painting by hand, Halloween style makeup and special effects.

Is there a story behind your model alias?

My real name is Lily, just added the monster because of my love for classic monsters and movies.

How did you get your start in the modeling business?

I been modeling on and off for many years, I think I was asked to model for my look at a young age because of my crazy hair.

If you could give one piece of advice to someone interested in becoming a model what would that be?

It would be to just model what you want and not to feel pressured to do anything you don’t want to. Always keep it fun!

You are also a MUA that specialises in body painting by hand, can you describe one of your favourite body painting projects?

I love doing the scary stuff, although I love transforming whole bodies into complete different characters.

You also skate in Roller Derby, tell us about your experiences:

I’m new to the Roller Derby world, I’m what they call Fresh Meat! So far I love it and haven’t broken any bones yet! I’m practicing and learning techniques to pass my skills test with The Prison City Derby Dames.

What can we expect from you for the remainder of 2011?

Expect lots more from me in the last 4 months of the year! I’m sure I'll get myself in more great projects to finish off the year.

Do you have anything that you would like to add or promote?

I’m also the owner of a great Vintage clothing store where I have my Makeup Studio in Uptown Whittier, Uptown Bombshell Boutique.
