Ringing in the New Year our Model of the Month is the ever so gorgeous Jessie Von Psyde
I’m Jessie Von Psyde and I started alternative modelling when I was 20. “Witch in latex” is the term I’d use to capture how much I love experimenting with different styles in the goth, metal and fetish aesthetic. My taste in music lies in the songs that make me headbang and those that get me on my pole. Follow Jessie on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jess_v0n_psyde_/
It’s the spooky season and our October Model of the month really brings a good chill down our spines.
Meet Sookie. A curvy fiery-red alt model who loves anything horror or a bit dark and spooky I have been modelling on and off for over twelve years- when I was younger, I was scouted by a model agency in London I got myself a portfolio together and they suggested due to my look I would be better suited being an “alternative model” rather than on a cat walk and from there I worked hard as a solo freelance model and fell in love with it all. I am now part of an agency called Secret Intentions who are a squad of fabulous supportive beautifully individual women of all shapes and sizes who work in the sex industry I shoot anything from fashion to lingerie and nude for my online content but I do prefer the more creative shoots like being in the water or cosplay- that way I get to bring my MUA skills to the table too. I’ve done so many shoots I’ve lost count but I love it so much!
a big thankyou to Gothic Culture magazine for the shout out

September is here which means fall is upon us. What better way to bring in our favorite time of the year than with this Gothic Goddess Sophie Aurélia Young who has not only been in our magazine as a model, but she is also the bass player and backup vocalist for the London based rock band Star Circus!
Star Circus is the brainchild of Dave Winkler (Bordello Rose, Renegade Playboys, Trophies of Man). After a detour playing guitar and touring as a hired gun for acts such as Bow Wow Wow, Johnny Lima and Ryan Hamilton, in late 2019 the band materialised out of Dave’s passion to create an album focused around his own material.
It wasn’t long before Winkler’s own songs started catching the attention of the music industry, including Total Rock and Radio One Rock Show legendary producer, Tony Wilson.
“Dave played me the demos and I was blown away by them – song after song crammed with catchy riffs and commercial hooks. I knew straight away that I’d love to work on this album and bring these fabulous songs to life.” – Tony Wilson
Alongside Tony handling production duties on ‘Separate Sides’, the debut album was mastered by Ade Emsley at Table of Tone Mastering (Iron Maiden/Alison Moyet/The Treatment); all of which adds to the potency of the song writing on offer here and equates to an euphoric collection of music that fans of melodic rock will enjoy over and over. Rock pop smarts? Check. You simply cannot miss the melodies, Winkler and co. have equipped themselves with great darts, and are taking aim.
From the infectious dark hooks of ‘Save Your Life’, the melodic uplifting sonics of ‘Just Like In A Movie’ and Love Is The Enemy’, to the melancholic yet anthemic delivery of ‘Bridges’, throughout this long player there’s a real sense Winkler’s true vision and inimitable style which gloriously celebrates the best of 70s/80s rock music. While the songs will sit comfortably with fans of classic style rock, Star Circus aren’t afraid to look at the here, now, and future of their musical direction. They’ve succeeded in delivering a body of work that truly makes this album their own.
To help celebrate this exciting debut album from Star Circus, ‘Separate Sides’ also features special guest appearances from Dan Stevens (Inglorious), Tom Draper (Carcass, Angel Witch), and backing vocals from Ben Christo (Sisters of Mercy, Diamond Black, Ricky Warwick Band).
“Infectious hooks & musical sophistication abound as Star Circus channel frontman Winkler’s inimitable style through the best of ‘70s/‘80s rock, creating a sound both comfortingly classic and excitingly innovative.” – Ben Christo
‘Separate Sides’ is released via the band’s label, Diamond Formation Music, 2nd December 2022.

I got into modelling just over a year ago as a little confidence booster and I quickly fell in love with it and become very passionate about it! I’ve been in over 20 magazines, collaborated with designers, met awesome models and photographers and was a finalist for UK Calender girls but I couldn’t make the final unfortunately! Modelling is just a hobby currently as I’m a busy mum of 2. Another passion of mine is tattoos, I’d love to be fully covered one day! It’s been an absolute pleasure and privilege being part of Gothic Culture Magazine!

It’s getting hot out and summer is nearly here so we decided to heat it up with our June model of the month Lisaranel! Be sure to give all her pages a like and support if you can.
Lisaranel began her modeling career about seven years ago when sharing some experimental photos of some costumes she had designed. Soon after this she began receiving offers from photographers to collaborate. Thinking it to be a good idea she accepted and began modeling as a hobby since it would be hard since she was still in school.
During quarantine Lisaranel opened an instagram page for her gothic modeling and began to upload her previous shoots & put her clothing designs out on social media. The reactions she received were very positive and supportive, some companies even offered her to be a brand model. This is how she started her career as an influencer and still continue to do this today.
For her musical taste Lisaranel generally likes Metal music. The genres she listens to are, Death Metal, Deathcore, Melodeath, Industrial, Gothic Metal, Progressive Metal, Djent, Darkwave, Synthwave and EBM. She has also began diving into extreme metal with Children of Bodom, so they are pretty special to her.
