Daddy’s little princess… where did it all go wrong? Let me introduce the queen of gore, the twisted princess of calamity and destruction, Visha Loo. This incredibly talented and genuinely twisted contortionist is one Canada’s best. Based in Calgary, Alberta, Visha Loo is a model, latex designer, freakshow performer, and organizational wizard who prides herself on creating hauntingly beautiful masterpieces and orchestrating upscale events that showcase some of the most creative and original artists from many corners of the globe. I have been a huge fan of Visha’s work for years and finally got a chance to sit and chat with her about her work and here’s what she had to say.
When did you start modeling and what was it that made you want to do it?
I started modelling back in 2003. It all started with SuicideGirls, which is funny because I was shy as fuck! But it seemed like the thing to do so I did it. Hehe. For me, every day is , so modelling only makes sense because it’s a fun way to dress up all the time! I can be whoever I wanna be and always switch it up.
To be a successful model requires lots of stuff, perhaps a gorgeous face, hot body, and lots of time and nerves to get the name out? What’s your secret?
Hehe. I have no clue. I just do as I do. I have my dreams and my goals and I go out and get them and live them! Be you! Whoever that is, because everybody else is already taken.
What was the hardest part about getting into the business?
What drew you into the alternative scene and what inspires you to this day?
I think it started back with Beetlejuice and Lydia. The dark, twisted, and strange have always interested me. Everything around me inspires me. I love seeing what other people will come up with. Personally, I just always end up in black hehe… or B&W stripes. I’m not sure if I’m “in” the alternative scene. I think I just float around everywhere and I seem to fit that the best.
What would you say it is that gives the most feminine note in your look?
I’m pretty sure that you are a very creative person. Do you give some ideas to your photographers about a photo session (the creative part) or do you keep it professional and follow their imagination?
99.9% of my photos are taken by my talented husband Jeremy. We make art together. I love the way our brain thinks. Most other photographers want me to be me… and I can do that!
What is your favorite genre of fashion? Why?
That is a hard one. I love so much. It all has its place. Once again, I love black… and stripes of course. But then again, I love onesies and Disney. It’s fun to try new styles. I like to look like your adorable weirdo next door. The cutest freak I can be.
How would you describe your style?
Disney meets !
How does it feel to be a gore icon? Your name is big and people recognize you from the multiple things you do, does it ever go to your head or do you consider yourself very down to earth.
Visha is vain as fuck! Hehe. She loves every moment. Janice (aka, the girl that does everything for Visha) is always surprised about what’s next. And can get overwhelmed asking why. But why not! It’s fun.
