Get to know VF Model LivingDreadDoll!
Get to know VF Model LivingDreadDoll
Anja LivingDreadDoll was born and raised in a very small village in the Frisian part of the Netherlands. She was a real tomboy. Already at the age of 4 she loved rock music. She grew up with 1960's music and rock music like Metallica, Black Sabbath, Sepultura, Queen, the Offspring,... you name it. At the age of 11 she got her nose pierced.
As a teenager she was that girl your parents warned you about. Drinking, doing drugs, she was aggressive and loved to pick a fight when somebody tried to bully her or her friends. Even though there was a lot going on at that time, she had a great time as a punk.
When she turned 16 she had an “intervention”, her whole world changed. The aggressive girl turned insecure, cause she didn’t know who she was anymore. Two years later, in 2005, she discovered a website called VampireFreaks. She saw so many gorgeous people with a lot of beautiful styles, a whole new genre for her to explore and that music, industrial? She loved it!
Anja became a new person and gained confidence thanks to VampireFreaks and became addicted to the site. Through the years she developed her own style and it didn't go unnoticed. In 2006 a photographer asked her if she wanted to start modeling and after that more photographers asked her. In 2009 she even overcame stage fright with her first catwalk.
Now she is 28. She loves her geeky boyfriend and loves everything goth and fantasy related: From books, games, movies, series to events where she can dress up. She spends a lot of time making outfits for Post Apocalyptic LARP and working on steampunk, goth jewelry and accessories. Her photoshoots now matches these interests. She's very much into wasteland and tribal related things and it shows in her portfolio.
Random LivingDreadDoll facts
She is really afraid of monkeys.
She still plays vinyls, cassettes and listens to music on antique tube radios.
Anja has a small collection of curiosities and oddities, especially animal skulls.
Her first photoshoot picture ended up in a magazine called ‘Quest’.
She is naturally ambidextrous. This is very rare and it basically means that she is left and right handed. Most people can only use their right hand to write, she can use both.
Now she's got a total of 5 nose piercings, including the one she got at her 11th birthday.
Even though she discovered VF in 2005, it took her a year before she dared to make an account, afraid that people would make fun of her.
She has the worst case of dyscalculia, but is actually really good in games which involve numbers.
She loves rats and owns three of them.
Anja doesn’t have a smartphone. In fact, she doesn't use a phone at all.
You can get to know more about LivingDreadDoll on her VF profile!

VF Book Review On Wytches
Hey VF readers,
with this week's VF book review on the graphic novel entitled "Wytches"
Check out the review and let us know if you've read this book. Feel free to add your own review or even give some recommendations on what the VF members should read next.
Recommended for fans of: HP Lovecraft, Stephen King, The Walking Dead, Sandman
The Rooks family think they can start over. The Rooks family think they can be happy. The Rooks family think moving to a new town, to a new place will give them a chance to escape. They think the past won't follow them.
The Rooks family is wrong.
Wytches is the creepy, eerie, and deeply unsettling story of a family, a town, and a pledge. Trying to recover from a disturbing accident, the Rooks move to a new town, hoping to give their teenage daughter Sailor a chance at a normal life. Unfortunately, normal seems out of the question. Plagued by anxiety, Sailor is convinced that someone, or some THING is calling to her from the woods outside their new home.
Her mother seems detached while her father grows more and more convinced she's descending into madness. But when Sailor wakes up with a mysterious bump on her neck things start spiraling out of control. You can run from the past, but you can't hide forever.
The beautiful and haunting illustrations set the stage for a story that will make your skin crawl. Scott Snyder has created something memorable and magical and the next issue can't come quickly enough.
Forget everything you think you know about witches. Wytches is something else entirely. Frighteningly fresh, dark, and at times disgusting; I can't recommend it enough.
Writer: Scott Snyder
