Ever since I was made aware of Steamgirl.com I have had an eye on the site. A lot has happened, but I am coming back to that later, in the second part of this article.
First and foremost, I had the opportunity of conducting an interview with one of the charming ladies who are featured on Steamgirl.com, the lovely and multi-talented Lucah Jade.
Please tell us something about yourself.
Well I am a pretty classical libra, I’m consumed with art and beauty, dabble in many skills and I can also be very indecisive! I love to travel and have spent a lot of my life on the road chasing music and adventure. Currently I teach yoga, train on aerial silks, and also make jewelry and clothing. When I’m not modeling, working, or creating, I’m usually just kicking it with my dog.
Where can we find you on the web?
You can see my portfolio on Model Mayhem and I am pretty active on Instagram under my business name, HelixRising. I am working on a website but its not up yet.
How did you meet Kato and get involved in Steamgirl?
I connected with Kato through Model Mayhem and I was just completely enamored with her style, skill as a seamstress/designer, and her success with her independent website. When she asked me to model for the site I was thrilled!
Apart from Steamgirl, are you in any other way involved with the steampunk scene?
Not really, I would like to do more though!
What other modelling have you done, and where can we find it?
Most of my modeling is free lance glamour or artistic nudes, Steamgirl was the first erotica shot I ever did. Sometimes I am modeling my own clothing, when it works for the shoot. All that material is on my Model Mayhem page.
You also do some arts and crafts yourself. How long have you been doing that?
Ive been making jewelry since 2007. I use all sterling silver wire and build the pieces from scratch, encasing and displaying fine gems and minerals. I’m also a seamstress, I make festival costumes, or performance outfits, yoga and dance wear.
You can find Lucah’s art and outfits right here in her store.
Are you engaged in any other artistic endevors apart from modelling and what can be found on Etsy?
Those are definitely my main artistic outlets but I also do some tattoo design work and dabble in graffiti a bit.
Oh, graffiti, that’s splemdid, I think you are the first interviewee who mentioned that.
What would you like to convey with your image?
Modeling requires a certain amount of vulnerability, and the main thing I aim for is really to just embody my own feminine power and be myself. You don’t have to be conventional to be beautiful, and confidence is truly sexy.
Thank you, Lucah for your time, it has been an honour and a pleasure.
And now for the second part:
As mentioned above, I have been following Steamgirl since I was made aware of it just over a year ago. The modest gallery has grown to 47 sets on Steamgirl.com itself and several more on the bonus site This is Kato. More ladies have joined the ensemble, among them obviously Lucah Jade and Ayria Lovett, whom I already interviewed for the German part of this blog (go here).
The ensemble is varied and most exquisit, in particular because the ladies are not the kind of standard models you would find on those model casting shows. There are no bland, interchangable faces and incarnations of „societies standardised vision of female beauty“ on Steamgirl.com, every model is unique.
The thematic variety of sets has also increased dramatcally: Now there are not only the fairly standard themes of tea time, library, boudoir, adventuress and airship pirate. Now, you also get a few distinctly darker sets in the main gallery (I won’t say more) and a vast spectrum of settings in Kato’s bonus gallery. All in all: Most excellent!
Concerning the videos:
The gallery of cinematographic art has sadly not grown as much as the photogalleries have. As of me writing this, only two vides have been added, all feature Kato as the protagonist. Let’s see what the future brings here.
All videos are of course well worth your time.
And a special note concerning This is Kato:
The set The Black Mask, my dear Kato, this is the most glorious piece of erotica in photography I ever had the pleasure to encounter. Great praises to you and the photographer.
So, Steamgirl.com remains one of the hottest sites on the web and well worth a visit. For the sake of your own eyes and enjoyment, pay it a visit.
Oh, and if you feel the need to cool off and chill after paying Steamgirl a visit, Lucah Jade can help you there, too:
