Interview with model Vicki Von Helsing
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into modelling?
I'm originally from Sheffield but currently living in Swansea, Wales. I started modelling at a very young age, my mother got me signed to a company in Manchester as a baby doing Catalogues and Knitting wear but once we moved to Wales it stopped. I spent my teenage years training as a contemporary dancer and it wasn't until 2014 I decided to start modelling again. Since then I have really pushed myself and I've build a great portfolio, worked with some amazing people and I'm loving every second.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I'm mainly a home bee, I love to use this time to spend with my family as I've started travelling so much. I also spend a lot of my time doing hot pod yoga it's such a great way to stay fit and a great way to keep your stress levels down and just focus on yourself for a few hours.
We launched in April 2015, so far, what do you think of our brand?
SteezyT looks great! I'm loving the style of the clothing and being Peta Approved and giving 10% of your profits to charity is a thumbs up from me! It's such a great idea and I think it's going to kick off with a bang in April.
What is your favourite item of clothing in your closet right now?
Such a hard question! I have lots of gorgeous items from shoots but I think currently it has to be my wedding dress! It's just perfect and it's nice to see some white in my closest.
Is there a photographer or model you would really like to work with?
There is so many models and photographers out there I would love to work with but I'm really loving Mario Zermeno, a photographer based in Las Vegas. He has been working with some fantastic people and his style is so original, it's definitely a goal of mine to work with him soon.
On a night out with your friends, you wind up in a karaoke bar. What song do you sing and why?
I'm not a karaoke person really, even thou I model and act I don't like being the center of attention but if I had to I would have to be David Bowie- Suffragette city. I just love him and all his songs make people want to sing along.
What was the first album you bought?...No fibs now ;)
The first album I bought was The Darkness-Permission to land! I'm not ashamed to say it! It was a great album and I'm sure most of you bought it!
What pop song is your guilty pleasure? (go on...we won't tell)
Who doesn't love some pop music! My music collection is such a mixture, currently I'm actually liking Nick Jonas new stuff much to my husband's demise, my pop music drives him mad.
Describe you perfect night in?
My perfect night in would be sushi, my husband and a new video game to play, sounds like heaven and Lucky for us there is so many great games coming out soon!
Who inspires and why?
The person that's been inspiring me the most lately is Annalee Belle, a Las Vegas based model for one she's gorgeous and she works really hard and posts some really inspirational things that I know will help younger girls and I think that is great. Anyone with a large fan base that uses it for a positive reason and not just for promoting themselves I think is a great inspiration.
Besides world domination, what are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future are to carry on pushing myself in the modeling industry and really making a name for myself then hopefully move over to the US and make a name for myself over there!
If you had to pic a favourite movie, what would it be and why?
I love the scene from Pulp Fiction when Mia Wallace mistakes two different drugs and overdoses, It's such an intense scene to watch but you can't take your eyes from the screen but it also got a humorous side to it but it's such a classic movie I had to pick it.
Favourite character from a comic book or graphic novel?
My favorite manga is Helsing and for fan's of the anime or manga they might have released that from my name! I have a great fan on IG who came up with Von Helsing as she knew I loved the manga! Seras Victoria is my favorite Character, she becomes so amazing once she learn's how to control her powers!
You can give one object (the same object) to everyone in the world. What is it, and why?
If I had to give one object to everyone in the world is would be a book called Help, Thanks, WOW by Anne Lamott, she has been through many issues in her life that everyone can relate too and the book is about Three simple Prayers to get you through tough times, everyday struggles and the everyday hard work that is life, It's humorist and relates to everyone religious or not. I think many people would really find it a helpful read and I wish everyone learnt how to deal with life's struggles and pushed themselves to be the best they can be.
What would you do if you were the one survivor in a plane crash?
If I was the only survivor in a plane crash I would firstly feel thankful but then probably some guilt for being the only person alive, it would definitely make me push myself even harder to never take life for granted and enjoy everyday.
Describe the colour yellow to somebody who is blind.
I would describe the color yellow as a warm, happy color to someone that is blind. I find yellow a very happy color.
