why don't you start us off with a visual and
describe the place where you are answered these
Well, currently I'm in a
dark, cold cellar. I can hear screams coming from
the back room - and I see my cat licking ketchup
of the floor....wait, that's not ketchup. Oh and
there is some strange man sitting in the corner,
breathing heavily and staring at me.
Tell me all
about your alter ego Demon. How that persona came
started off as a nickname for myself. When I was
younger I was shy, geeky and very awkward.
"Demon" was this bad ass persona that
no one wanted to mess with. Mentally, I think
I've trained myself to be Demon 24/7.
I also want to
hear about the book you did called Gothix Model:
a Guide to Alternative Modeling. What made you
decide to do the book?
Gothix Model was my first book! I wrote it
because before I started alternative/horror
modeling I noticed something - I had not seen ONE
dark skinned "GOTH" model around. So
when I started this creepy form of modeling, I
started getting emails and letters up the ass
from people! A lot of them were from dark skinned
girls who didn't know how to get started in the
industry. My book consisted of everything from
makeup tips, posing techniques, scam detection
and even certain "modeling websites" to
What is the
biggest advice you give to women who are looking
to break into the alternative modeling world?
it many times and I'll say it again! Don't be
CLICHE with photos! Don't be the girl licking a
bloody knife, or the one wearing "The
crow" makeup. Its been done before, and its
boring. Do something original. I've told this to
many chicks and they totally avoid my warnings -
then have to hear them nag about why no one is
interested in working with them....umm because
Has your being
a finalist in Afterdark's Miss Horrorfest, being
in the CadaverGirls Calendar and a Scream Queen
of the Month opened many doors for you
to the yes it has! When Cadaver Girls contacted
me, I was at the beginning of my alternative
career - so I felt quite honored to be chosen.
When I entered the Miss Horrorfest competition, I
seriously didn't think I was going to make it as
far as I did. I figured I was a horror MODEL not
a horror ACTRESS, so no one would vote for me -
boy was I wrong! Ha! The thing that I'm realizing
is one thing always leads to another. Because
after Miss Horrorfest I ended up on the scream
queen website, I had no clue! I just checked my
website stats and I had incoming hits from their
site. I think with every project, and every web
feature - eventually the entire world will be
under my control and everyone will be demon
In the future
do you plan on moving from your horror print work
into movie roles?
I mean I have always done horror related
projects, but my resume is very limited to on
screen roles. I guess because I have no
experience with this, Im not quite sure on how to
get started. I just need someone to give me that
Do you have
any other upcoming projects you want the
racksandrazors readers to know about?
of course! Recently I moved to Kentucky, because
the overpriced city life was getting to me. So,
now I'm starting a new life, and have tons of new
ideas. One of which is a web based reality show
featuring me, and some ghoulish friends. Of
course I cant get much into detail, but I think
everyone will be pleased with the finished
werewolves, zombies, witches, creatures, aliens,
telemarketers...what does it for you horrorwise
Vanessa and why?
zombies and creatures are always my favorite
types of horror flicks. I've always enjoyed
"The occult/mysterious" types, rather
than the humans wielding chainsaws...ugh..BORING!
However I would have to say the scariest would be
telemarketers...sneaky little devils...NO I DO
NOT WANT TO BUY A YEAR SUPPLY OF TWINKIES! STOP
What was the
first movie to scare the shit out of you?
'Twilight'. It was so horrible that I cried
during the entire thing.
pulling into the Vanessa Rosa Drive In. What
three horror flicks are on the triple bill for
tonight and what goodies are they going to be
serving up at the concession stand?
in? Haha! Well since it's my drive in - the first
movie would be "Daybreakers" but since
that movie does not actually come out until
January the 8th, I'm going to make all you
customers wait in your car for 2 weeks until It
starts. Lets see, the other movies would be
"Last House on the Left", as well as
"Orphan". As for the concession stand,
I think I'll be nice and put you all on a
chocolate binge (since it is my favorite snack)
Kit-kat bars, and Ferrero Rocher for everyone!
What is your
dream (or nightmare) horror movie role?
always wanted to play a villain in a movie (big
surprise I know) I just want to be that character
that was your friend the entire flick and then
half way through, just snaps and kills yah!
best Halloween costume you ever had?
where I had my hair curlers in and my pink fluffy
robe on - holding a shot gun, and yelling at the
trick or treaters to get off my front lawn...wait
that wasn't a costume.
you in real life?
definitely bugs - spiders, centipedes, even
