Pin up of the month January

Pin Up of the Month

Our first pin up of the month for 2014 is the lovely Mashashy. The judges chose her this month as she is a relative beginner to pin up but shows promise - anyone can be a pin up if you choose to be.

Here is a little interview with her.

Mashashy is a rather unusual name, how did you choose your model name? 

My real name is Ashleigh and as a child my nickname was Mashy.  Since the name was used when creating an email account I ended up with Mashashy and it just stuck.

What started your interest in Modelling?

I started by modelling Cosplays at various conventions almost by accident.  It wasn’t until I did an alternative photoshoot and was blown away that I perused modelling more seriously.

What made you want to do lingerie/pin up modelling?

There is something so sexy about these shoots and I just couldn’t resist giving it a shot!  Being on set I feel so sexy and it boosts my confidence so much.  Also I love to be the centre of attention so it polishes my ego rather well.

You Cosplay as well, where do you get your costumes?

My Cosplays are made by The Rubber Pineapple.  They are a UK based company and have amazing attention to detail.  I can't sew for anything so it is good to have someone to hand who is so talented.
I am planning a Poison Ivy Cosplay from Batman.  I can't wait!!!

Which is your favourite Cosplay to date?

Princess Peach is my favourite character to Cosplay.  It always goes down well with children of all ages and I love the character.  Her ball gown outfit makes me feel like a real princess too.

What do you love about cosplaying?

I love my fans.  I appreciate each and every single one of them and have the best conversations with them at conventions and online!

You were featured on E4s ‘Geeks’, what was it like?

Haha, it was an experience to say the least!  Getting to party in LA with Taylor Hasslehoff and seeing places from movies was amazing.  I would love to do it again!

You have started a Kickstarter project, how is that going?
Gosh it was amazing, I hit my target within four hours of starting and it just kept going!!! (or is still going) here

What else do you do?
I am currently perusing modelling full time and working on my crafts to sell at anime and games conventions.  I make lots of arty things and am always coming up with new ideas.  One of my main projects at the moment are my own childrens book and the third issue of my comic!

Do you have any other hobbies?
I enjoy arts and crafts and looking after my pets.  Video Games take up a huge chunk of my free time too.

Mashashy has a facebook  page 

Here is a selection of Mashashy's images - photographers include:

We hope to arrange a shoot with Mashashy so watch this space for more!
