Suicide Girls

We were privilege to have a conversation with Missy the founder of the world famous Suicide Girls.

For those that may not know who the Suicide Girls are.

Missy – Suicide Girls is a pin up girl website where unique looking girls post nude pictures of themselves. It started 14 years ago and we now have evolved into books, a clothing line, movies, a comic book, magazine and now a burlesques tour.

Bring us back to when it first came to you, were you a model /photographer?

Missy – I was /am a photographer and I came across images that Bunny Yeager had taken of Bettie Paige. There is something so natural in the pictures in the way they were taken. Betty was so confident in her own skin and it look like being photographed by another woman helped to bring out the overall confidence.

I felt some of the girls I knew with tattoos and piercing are the most beautiful girls in the world and I decided to show case them. Once I got the images back I decide to create a journal / blog to give them a place to share with the world there thoughts and feelings.

Was it well received from the jump?

Missy – The images yes, but I didn’t think that anyone would want to put themselves out their but, people were interested.

THIS IS OUR IDEA OF BEAUTY REDEFINED is that a credo?

Missy – Yes we are redefining what people only feel is beautiful.

How does one become a Suicide Girl?

Missy – They apply online at https://suicidegirls.com and the model core staff will help you through the process. If they don’t make it the first time, we give them feedback on what they need to work on. They are always welcome to submit again.

Missy – Most of our photographers are former models, we find that women shooting women really brings out the final look that we are going for.  We avoid the studio look we try to highlight the girls in their environment and/or what they would like to showcase.
