The Amazing, Versatile, Tristin Vitriol

Tristin Vitriol is Asheville's Fantasy girl. Quite literally. Her modelling often involves looks and costuming that you'll only find in the most fertile imaginations and much of that is why we're featuring her in our FIRST interview of 2013.

 CGM: Your page says you do glamour, fetish, fine art, artistic, nude, avant-garde, macabre and alternative beauty. Can you describe quickly for our readers what fetish, macabre and alternate beauty modeling entails?

Photographer: Noah Park
Retouch: Gaunted
MUA: Tristin Vitriol
 TRISTIN V: Fetish modeling is modeling fetish clothing or devices that augment your body in a fetishistic manner. Fetish itself is the sexual arousal a person receives from a physical object, or from a specific situation. (why yes, I am giving you definitions) I much prefer "fact" to my opinions! Macabre is just the "darker" stuff. Images having to do with the gruesome or death. Alternative beauty, well that's a very broad area. It's generally anything not main stream still considered beautiful. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So it is very general.
Photographer: Dangerously Dolly
MUA: Molly Walsh

CGM: 2. What draws you to these types of modeling?

TRISTIN V: For fetish, I do it because the things that I model turn me on. Why not share that? Same actually goes for macabre. As for alternative beauty, I still conform to the main stream standards of beauty, I just look slightly different. I like it because it's an umbrella term. I can have my simple purple hair and piercings, or I can go all out with makeup and entirely morph my look. It's all covered.

Photographer: DayJaVUE
MUA: Courtney Vanhoy Garret
Hair: Meredith Johnson
CGM: Your work is greatly varied and some of it very creative.
Are most of your shoots collaborative or do the photographers just tell you what they want and you do it? 
Photographer: Kenny Kivett
MUA: Tristin Vitriol
Hair: Meredith Johnson

TRISTIN V: Most of the time I come up with the theme. I do almost all my own makeup and hair. And I do all my own wardrobe. My best images though, are when the photographer adds to it. Like my images with Kenny Kivett, Chris Donald and Scott Bilby. They had a lot of input. They had ideas of how they wanted it to look as well, and the combination, makes magic.
Photographer: Chris Donald
MUA: Tristin Vitriol

CGM: What sort of hobbies and interests do you have outside of modeling?

TRISTIN V: I enjoy sewing. I mostly just alter things and rig clothes, when I have time. I have an amazing dog and I spend a lot of time with him. He enjoys hiking. I like taking him to the local forests and swimming and walking with him. I'm a hair dye addict and a nerd, those totally count as hobbies to me. I'm planning on getting into performing very soon as well. And I will be incorporating my love of nerdom in with it. My love for latex is outside of my modeling. The whole reason I got into modeling was because I was online looking at buying some and my friend asked me why I didn't model it. The thought hadn't even crossed my mind! And now look where I'm at.

Michelle Tomlinson is all Wet?

Well, she could be!

There is a Facebook page trying to get actress, producer, Cult Goddess and all around talented woman, Michelle Tomlinson into a dunk tank for charity (yet to be determined, but Michelle supports many excellent causes as our past interviews have revealed.)

The event is based on a certain number of people getting behind it.  So, if you'd like to see Michelle Tomlinson dropped into a dunk tank, covered in water, her clothes clinging to her wet glistening body, or you want to support a worthy cause (or you want to tell yourself you're doing it to support a worthy cause) click on over to and hit "Like".

Happy Summer! 

Hope you have been enjoying yours!  I've had a great and exciting one so far enjoying impromtu barbeques along with the company of friends and family.  There's nothing like a good southern barbeque, even if you are eating tofu dogs...

Last month I got to stay in Greensboro, North Carolina to film a commercial for Lowes Foods, which you can watch by clicking here or on the link below.  It was neat for me to get to do the voice over as well as the on camera work for it.  I always enjoy working in NC and, while I was there, I got to hang out with some of my friends from the movie "Hellphone".

Back in GA, I had a wonderful time on the set of "Drop Dead Diva", which if you've never seen it, is a really fun show.  Brooke Elliott, who plays the title character (above) isn't just a brilliant actress, she's also an incredibly sweet person.  It comes on Lifetime Sundays at 9/8c.  I'm in the 9th episode of this new season, which will most likely air in late July or early August.

Finally, and most exciting of all, I got cast in the supporting role of Brenda in the SAG feature film "Plus One", which is shooting here in Atlanta.  We have already started rehearsing some of the scenes with more complicated blocking, and will start filming in a couple of weeks.  I'll be busy working on it until the end of July.  My character is really fun, the script is great, and I can't wait to start shooting!

I'd love to hear what you are up to as well, so please stay in touch!
