Mz Bones - Model Feature
"My favourite actress is Mae West, she was a total badass, you can literally pick any scene from any of her films and come up with a total classic. 'When I'm stuck between two evils, I tend to take the one I never tried' is probably my favourite line of hers, she was razor sharp."
Interview with model Mz Bones
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into modeling?
I'm Ali, I'm 23 and from the South West. I work as a makeup artist, hair stylist, beauty writer and tattooed model. I got into modelling completely by accident, which makes me really grateful for every job and opportunity that comes my way.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I'm pretty boring, I travel quite a bit for work so I enjoy spending time at home and catching up with my friends and family. I'm self employed, so I've always got work to do, when I'm busy its hard to know when to stop. I spend quite a bit of time seeking out nice vegan food too as I'm not the best at cooking.
We launched in April 2015, so far, what do you think of our brand?
I think its awesome! Its so great to be approached by a vegan brand, especially one with such killer designs, so I'm always proud to rep some SteezyT
What is your favourite item of clothing in your closet right now?
I'm not great with clothes, I definitely dress for comfort over anything else, so I'd have to say my favourite black hoodie as I wear it non stop. I always really appreciate being sent outfits for events and photoshoots as it means I can't screw it up by trying to style myself
Is there a photographer or model you would really like to work with?
I'm pretty happy right now as last year was amazing for me work wise, I got to work with some photographers who's work I've admired for years, including Bilacous - the pics we shot together are still getting so much love, its unreal. I also shot with Melanie Titus almost 2 years ago now, and those pictures are still cropping up in different tattoo magazines which is really nice. I've got some great stuff coming up this year, I'll be announcing a list of events I'll be appearing at very soon.
On a night out with your friends, you wind up in a karaoke bar. What song do you sing and why?
Trust me, nobody wants to hear me sing! Plus I don't drink...is it even possible to do this sober?! Maybe I'll try and find out one day, then I can tell you my song choice. I sing along to Misfits and Horrorpops in my car all the time, does that almost count?
What was the first album you bought?...No fibs now ;)
I really don't remember, but I'm pretty sure the first gig I went to was Motorhead and Queens of the Stone Age, my Dad took me and I remember having the best time with him.
What pop song is your guilty pleasure? (go on...we won't tell)
I love some 90s r&b, Jennifer Lopez, that kind of stuff, it makes me all nostalgic.
Describe you perfect night in?
I love a good night in, the perfect night would involve pizza, a good film or two and some great company (usually, my gorgeous rescue dog, Misty)
Who inspires and why?
I know its really cheesy, but my Dad is my hero so he definitely inspires me. Also, I think anybody that stands up for animals is hugely inspiring.
Besides world domination, what are your plans for the future?
World domination is obviously top of the list, but other than that I just want to keep going and keep building up my business. Being self employed is something I really value and it keeps getting better & better, so I feel really lucky. I'm always trying to be a better person too, and live with as much compassion for others as possible. Working on my bodysuit is also on the cards, although I suck at getting tattooed nowadays.
If you had to pic a favourite movie, what would it be and why?
My favourite actress is Mae West, she was a total badass, you can literally pick any scene from any of her films and come up with a total classic. 'When I'm stuck between two evils, I tend to take the one I never tried' is probably my favourite line of hers, she was razor sharp. Also, any scene from The Craft, I'm totally obsessed with it.
Favourite character from a comic book or graphic novel?
I don't read comics, I'm afraid! But my favourite book is The Hobbit, I've read it so many times.
You can give one object (the same object) to everyone in the world. What is it, and why?
Vegan pizza, its guaranteed to make everyone happy.
What would you do if you were the one survivor in a plane crash?
I don't even want to think about that as I'm due to take my first flight in many years in a few months time to go on a business trip! Although I'm quite good in a crisis, so I reckon I could probably handle it...but only just.
Describe the colour yellow to somebody who is blind.
Its warm and bright like sunshine :)
