Jade Alexia - I wanna encourage other women to be a model if they want to
Pin up style is typically retro fashion. It can also include lingerie and be more boudoir. Typically, Pin Up shoots are very feminine with lots of glamour, class, and, if you are like me, red lipstick is a must. Pin Up models in the US are historically known for being posters that men had while they were away at war. Now, Pin Up has became a great way for women to creatively express themselves. I love that the Pin Up community is so welcoming to models of all looks and body types. I model Freelance. I completely do it myself and I wanna encourage other women to do this if they want to. Nothing has to hold you back and you don't have to meet other peoples standards for body types or looks
Teenage dreams ? What did you think during your teenage years about your future ?
When I was a teenager, my dream was to be a tattoo artist. I used to draw all the time! Art and creating is very important to me. Although I have pursued other passions now, I still try to create art and I try to show that in my modeling.
When did you start to think about being a model ?
I have been tall ever since I was about 13. Everyone used to tell me "Oh, you are so tall and pretty. You should model!" I didn't really think about it, I didn't think I was confident enough or I didn't have 'this or that'. I mean I was a teenager, so not the most confident time in a girls life. Then I had my first photoshoot and it actually made me more confident.
First photo session ? How was that experience ?
My first photo session wasn't actually planned. My sister invited me to go along to her photoshoot and I did. The photographer really liked my look and insisted on shooting me. So we did and it was amazing! I was hooked, I was 16 at the time and have been modeling ever since!
Pin Up style - Can you tell our readers about Pin Up culture and your Pin Up modeling.
Pin up style is typically retro fashion. It can also include lingerie and be more boudoir.

How much is Pin Up popular in USA those days ? In Europe it is very popular.
Pin Up has for sure been growing a little more in the USA. It is pretty big in the car scene; Models will shoot with vintage cars and go to car events. My hope is that it continues to grow and more models will try Pin Up out!
Horror queen. Tell us more about that 😊
I love all things horror. The month of October is my favorite time of the year. I use Halloween decorations as normal home decor. I've always loved horror movies and the suspense while watching them. I use my love of horror in my photoshoots. I do, what I like to call, "horror boudoir." I wear lingerie and sometimes fake blood and use Halloween props or costume items. I love it and I really hope I can inspire more horror-loving models to start doing it as well.
The best and the worst horror movies in your opinion ?
The best is always such a hard question to answer; I could write a book about all my favorites! Right now, I really love Halloween (2018). It had hidden details that were throwbacks to the older Halloweens and there was so much girl power in the movie (which is always a plus). The Exorcist is always on my best list, because it is a classic and had such a huge impact at the time premiered. Bride of Chucky is one of my all time faves. I know people have mixed feelings about the Chucky movies, but I love Jennifer Tilly. Worst horror movies, there are a lot! I hate watching horror movies then guessing everything that is gonna happen in the first five minutes. The worst that comes to mind right now, Freddy vs Jason. I recently rewatched it and afterwards, I was sitting there wondering why I wasted all the time I did watching it.
Comic book collector - that is very interesting. What kind of comic books do you collect and from where is that passion came from ? Favorite Comic hero ? 😊
I collect all kinds of comics! To the big names, like DC and Marvel, and smaller "indie" comics. I have always been a superhero fan and comics are so interesting and artistic. I have a lot of Harley Quinn comics, her own series and her starring in others. I have a bunch of Spider-man comics, including Peter Parker and many other Spider men and women. Tons of Batman and Catwoman! It is hard to pick one favorite because, they all have so many different qualities and personalities. I will say right now, I'm hooked on Miles Morales as Spider-man.
Modeling in general - favorite photo sessions ?
My favorite photo sessions are for sure my horror boudoir ones! I get to express my passions and doing that makes me feel more confident and powerful while modeling.
Anything you would like to add about you ?
I model Freelance. I completely do it myself and I wanna encourage other women to do this if they want to. Nothing has to hold you back and you don't have to meet other peoples standards for body types or looks.
Plans for the rest of 2019 ?
I have a lot of plans for my modeling and creating coming up! I plan to launch something new in October, so watch out for that! (No spoilers, sorry!)
