All of the below are either legal things you need to know or answers to questions repeatedly asked by you, the fans, over my career. More will be added as they arise. Thanks, guys! HISTORY:
"People often stumble into hard situations. My 'hard situation' is a history book."
I began amateur modeling in 1988, and made a serious go of it in 1996, and after research on the topic, I'm confident that I'm the first online model (period), not to mention online normal-sized and online "disabled" model. By the Summer of 1999, I owned one of the first internet radio stations in the world (making SPIN Magazine in November of the following year) and hosted 3 internet radio shows where I was hailed an internet sex symbol. I came out as a geek (surprising everyone) in '04 when I co-hosted the FIRST EVER internet talk show on Gaming, "Dark Dungeons". In that same year, I recorded my first album: an Industrial ode to "The Prisoner" and my favorite book, "Brave New World" (inlay shots available here). The single
saw airtime (as recently as 11 and 12 of 2015) and was officially released on YouTube in 2013.
During and since, I've done stage acting, radio advertising, and voice acting as well. I consolidated my websites at D.A. in '08. I took a break for college but returned in 2012 with my amazingly talented photographer, Gino. While 2013 saw his departure, 2014 saw the big bang and the busiest year of my career, until the present, my show on YouTube
, a Fan Club
, and a multitude of social media hotspots sprung up as well. In the beginning of 2014 I'd founded my own clothing line, Snazzy Pants.
On June 18, 2015, what I do to relax became something others could use. -- I make a point to build nothing boring and everything unique. My characters are *characters* and my homes have *character* as well. Each piece is modified: hand-crafted, I guess. I love mixing genre: like CyberPunk, NerdPunk, FutureGreek, or FutureGoth (for examples). The sky is the limit. I like mixing cultures as well: Indian, Japanese, Gothic, African, Roman, and so on. Screenshots of my characters and buildings, as they're being made, are available HERE

On August 17, 2015: One of the hardest public things I've had to do, the "Caught On Video" Extra: "Surviving... Again". Officially posted to the R.A.I.N.N. Facebook page on February 8, 2016, the video was made immediately after I was raped in hopes of letting others know it can happen to the best of us, and that the shame is not on us. As a survivor of extreme childhood sexual abuse, it was a very important message to me. Video: youtu.be/aA4gICKvrX8
In December 2015 I ran with the near-defunct term, and started the movement, #Fauxfended
to help show people how easily they become "offended" at the trivial and remind them that we live in the nation of the 1st Amendment, where *everyone* has the right to say whatever they want, but NOBODY has the right NOT to be offended. Later that month I started #RealitySpank
: what happens when someone protected from reality gets a dose of it. ...because we all don't get pillows under our precious tushes when we fall down and we all don't get a hand to stand up.
On December 10, what started as a way to find perfumes became amusingly referred to as "Reviews and a Show". I now post comedic reviews of perfumes safe for migraine sufferers, in my own, whimsical fashion at tinyurl.com/honeyscents
On Dec. 25, 2015, on my Facebook page
, I'd been counting down 56 days since Christmas adverts fired the first shot past the Halloween threshold. Now, thanks to this Official War on Halloween, I'd invited everyone to... the Nightmare Before Christmas! It was time to give Christmas the war they've been *saying* they had all this time, and I did! See the This is Halloween
gallery here. -- Video: youtu.be/yrpiiRa2yYQ
On January 9, 2016, I became one of the few, the rare, the proud, short-lived *conventional* Industrial Deejays. ...and now we know why. The FCC has it set up to favor the Major Labels and keep the Independents off the air. With the advent of internet and satellite radio, there's no wonder it can't keep up...
On January 19, 2016, I started a Global Initiative to help solve the world's problems using outside-the-box humor, by gathering global thinkers, masters in their field, and comedians into a group called "Global Underpants". "Solving the world's problems, in our underpants". www.facebook.com/globalunderpa…
In late January, 2016, I began my #consentissexy
campaign, with the help of The Offspring's "I Want You Bad" video, and continued in March with Schäffer the Darklord's "Yes", because there is nothing on God's Green Earth as awesome as being with someone who as into you as you are into them. ...and there IS someone, even many someones, for everyone.
On. Feb. 3, 2016, I definitively proved that that Global Communication and Understanding was finally possible when I made each of my 13 public posts to my Facebook page each in a different language. tinyurl.com/honeyonline
I have continued to post there in any language I feel is appropriate. I've made friends with people who can't speak English and have held whole conversations in languages I don't speak. The world has truly opened up for me. I love it. 💝
Due to many requests, on February 5, I addressed Corporate greed and emotional manipulation in my Corporate Valentine/Fauxfection episode of "Caught on Video", and suggested what we do about it. VIDEO: [link]
Science is important for our future, and we need more of a general interest in it. Last year, I free-range taught Quantum Entanglement because its description alone is, well, naughty. 👄 However, on February 10th, I made it official, with the #ScienceisSexy
hashtag! Share the Science!
On February 15, I officially began an auction of over 35 TORRID tops, a couple of Her Universe tees, and the rest of my Snazzy Pants items w/ 60% of the proceeds going to R.A.I.N.N. (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) to help survivors of sexual abuse. When it ended with no bids, I took my act to...
...Twitter where I began doing one-liners on February 22nd. My philosophy has been I can either get frustrated or see the humor in things. I choose the latter. Here's what happened within 3 days 😜: Tweet impressions up 1,363.9% Profile visits up 2488.6% Visit me there twitter.com/hithorys
On Feb. 20, I announced that I was tearing down social media sites and began the countdown to Demolition Day. Only a FEW have remained. Links for the remainders are available on top of my journals.
Also, on Feb. 20, I started the Honey Collaboration Society, where artists and writers can work WITH me and others to create works, here on D.A. Visit honeycollabsociety.deviantart.…
On April 13th, I tested overwhelmingly positive for Synesthesia, which is the combination of senses. I knew this, but I didn't know it was odd. It explains my exact color coordination, as Color, Scent, and Taste are the same sense to me. I have since begun informing people of how I smell color or see fragrance, as examples, through my art.
On April 15th, I worked with my local radio station on an Old Time Radio Production. We did episodes of "The Thin Man", "Inner Sanctum Mysteries", and "Burns and Allen"'s "Gracie Takes Up Crime Solving", live, where played the role of Gracie Allen.
On May 6, 2016, I announced that I could not retire until people stopped getting all #fauxfended
by the fact that women have bodies, and realized that women with bodies can also have some mad genius. I intend to do this by mixing my extensive education with my art, and by poking at this pent-up Neo-Victorian age. I'm ready to bring in the next Roaring 20s.
Yes, I'll still be slinging Science on the side. I can do both.
On May 7, 2016, I added to my mission a need to make my childhood known so that survivors of extreme sexual abuse would know that there can be, and IS, success with, and after, PTSD.
On June 16, 2016, I began tearing down my social media sites, including my show page, upon reading a news article on, and then testing, whether or not people read what is posted. I am unsure how long this D.A. site will remain. We'll take it one day at a time...COPYRIGHT LAW:

for more information.COMMUNICATION:
I've received so many messages featuring the *same* messages over the decades, that this F.A.Q. became necessary. I no longer answer any questions that are answered here in this F.A.Q.
I'm a busy person, so people who write me here can't expect to get a reply. Please feel no need to comment on every photo you favorite. However, if you do comment often, just know that I do reply to as many posts as I can & I *do* read every message. Being that this page is here for artists, and I *legally* require artists to contact me before using my photos, I will reply to them with priority.
If you really want to contact me, I am VERY active at Honey Online where I post like an interactive educational entertainment network. I'm also available on Twitter where I post original puns. I *am not* available anywhere but there sincemy YouTube Show "Caught On Video", ended. (NOTE: On Twitter AND Facebook, CHAT is reserved for close friends and family. I love you, but post like everyone else, please. )
I used to be more understanding of improper grammar, but that has changed. These days there is no excuse. I've taken college classes for it, but even *I* use the Grammerly Ap. It tells you instantly when your grammar is incorrect. So, no more understanding. The internet is the ONE place your knowledge and use of language is the one thing anyone can judge you on. Put your best foot forward because if you write like a preschooler, I will ignore your post. Sloppy writing shows just how much you care about the person you are writing to, and I REALLY feel the sincerity. <3
If you see a grammatical error, let me know and I will fix it. I am my own Grammer Nazi, so it is rare and I won't let it stand.
If you are a non-English speaker, just let me know, or, use your own language. I write in EVERY language. While I may not master them, I translate and re-translate until I have it right.
I am nigh impossible to offend. In fact, the only things that do it are willful ignorance and hypocrisy. I may inform, out of common courtesy, or post humorous observation, on others' pages. What I *don't do* is force my opinion on others and I expect the same courtesy. (In fairness, NOBODY can FORCE an opinion on anyone, given freedom of choice and responsibility, but I digress.) That being said, you can disagree with me, respectfully, because I believe in the First Amendment WITHOUT exception; I'm cool with you. After all, we do need to be able to hold a dialogue of *adults* about things that matter or nothing will get accomplished. We all have the personal choice to be on the pages we go to and view the things we do; we do not have the right to harass the owners of said pages because we do not like what we see. It was, again, our choice to view it. SO, if you act like a spoiled two-year-old on my page, it was your choice to be there in the first place, but my choice whether or not to endure your shenanigans. -- See D.A.'s guidelines for etiquette, because I am even more lenient: about.deviantart.com/policy/et…
I had always been professional and kept my personal life out of my modeling. I made one exception on the subject of rape in September 2015, in hopes of helping others feel understood. In 2016, I quit dumbing down, and since I've been more open about who I am through my art.
On that note... Yes, I have PTSD as a result of extreme childhood torture and rape. I came out about it originally on an episode of Caught On Video, because of how far I've come regardless, and I wanted others to know that it was, at least, possible to chase your dreams and attain your goals despite night terrors and fear and depression. However, I do not have the answers. I am not a counselor. I hope I can be an example. -- I do talk openly on this topic @ tinyurl.com/honeyonline, because, honestly, the shame isn't mine. I just have an interesting, and sometimes amusing, life. :-P
You can get autographed prints one of three ways: 1. You can approach me at a Gaming or SciFi convention, such as GenCon, DragonCon, or MarsCon, and I'll be happy to sign something for you and even have photos with you. Or 2: Win a contest, such as the "Sugar and Spikes" contest of February 2012.
In January 2016, I turned 42 - the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. (Here's
a photo of me in May of my 42nd year.) I generally forget my age until I'm asked... and then I have to do math. :-/ I don't relate to the number at all, nor am I defined by it, though my immense amount of knowledge is what ends up giving me away, inevitably. Still, my friends tend to be in their early-mid 20s, which works, I guess, since I act, feel, move (oh yeah), and am often guessed around that age. It was as early as a week ago (05/19/16), in fact. O.o
With the exception of tattoos, I haven't had ANY
work done on any part of my body. Everything you see on this D.A. page, on me, is 100% real and unmodified
. Further, I despise using Photoshop and keep it to the minimum - mostly photo quality and lighting.
Keep in mind that some Morph Artists, with my permission, have altered me on their personal pages
, and those go in my favorites as well. Anything in my galleries here or on my
or Tattoo Blog sites, however, is how I really, naturally,
look or have looked in the past.
I will not reveal my weight because I don't believe weight is a relevant or accurate means of description. It means different things to different people since people differ in proportion. Weight in pounds cannot tell you where the pounds are held, or how they're carried.
My measurements have varied up and down throughout my career, but I always retain the top-heavy hourglass. I will say that in October 2013 I was and had been, 50-40-50 & 40I for some time. However, through most of Oct. and in November 2013 I was losing 1 pound a day. This leveled off in January '14, 2014, and remained steady at 46-34-44 & 38K until late May of 2016. Then, in less than two weeks, I lost 7 inches and show no signs of stopping. I'm presently (5/27/16) at 43-33-41 and 38G. I'll keep you posted.FASHION:
My real hair, as of November 2015, is Raven Black. My amazing grandmother had natural lily-white skin and black hair; she always wore ruby red lips. I've rocked the look several times throughout my life (as you can see here from '88 on), but when she passed, I had to do it in tribute. As of late December 2015, I hold the Feature photo for the Snow White Face
D.A. Group, and I'm really truly so very proud. <3
For actual photos of my natural hair color, here's my Mugshot: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
The piercings: May-early November 2015, I had 4 face piercings, my left ear pierced all the way up, and my right ear pierced 1/2 way up as seen here
. I heal WAY too fast; if I left anything out overnight, it healed, so now I only have my ears done. I currently hold the Feature photo on the Pierced and Tattooed
DA Group, and I can't thank them enough.
Ye OLDE covered cross tattoo. You asked... a lot, so here's a clear shot: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
(The Full-view or Download view will help you see it much better.) I had it covered it over for my birthday in 2014. HERE
is a clear photo of the new version, though the coffee cup is obscured.
The nails. The NAILS: Between 2000-2003 I kept my nails appx. 2 inches long. Photo from '01: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
The longest point was during the Witchy and Dead Bride Galleries when I grew them to 2 1/2 inches for that Halloween, 2000. Photo: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
However, in 2013, and years before, they've settled about here: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
The corset. honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…
It was a real, handmade, steel-boned corset, made to measurement - not a cheap one you can get at an everyday lingerie store. It was constructed for the purpose of waist training like ladies did in the 19th century. Through 2005, I trained down in it, always lacing in the waist more tightly. I was in my corset 12 hours a day, and I slept in a spandex "sleeping corset" overnight until I achieved a 19-inch difference from chest to waist and 17 inches from waist to hips. The 2005 galleries feature it worn properly. I sold this during my Tattoo Donation Sale.
The shoes. Most of the time I wear a 9 but in the case of a sandal it *might*, on rare occasion, be an 8 1/2. It depends on the shoe. My shoe here
. I used to wear only heels, but over the past few years I've severely taken to favoring military boots.
The feet. Over 2012-2013, my feet have gotten a lot of attention, so I've made a point to have barefoot shoots during that time. In fact, in many galleries where I am not barefoot, I've removed my shoes for a shot or two. While you will see more "on purpose" barefoot photos over '12-13, there are even some, here and there, going back to 1996. Will I photograph only my feet? No. That'd be like showing only my hands. It's all part of the whole. However, I'll make sure they're in there when it fits the scene.
The smoking. fav.me/d4xpclu
Yes, yes, I love taking pictures with cigars, hookahs, etc. I find images of smoking women so very sexy and so I love to capture it when I can.
The bikini. I've gotten a lot of people ask about bikini photos and this is the closest thing: honeymodel.deviantart.com/art/…PRINCIPALS:
"If you don't like these, I have others." -Groucho Marx
On March 22, 2016, I discovered I was the many-times Great-Grand Neice of someone I've studied my entire life, and someone I consider myself to be a "graduate student of": Benjamin Franklin.
I took him very seriously before, but now I feel compelled to live up to a legacy... and I know
that I can.
I don't do nudes. Not out of prudishness or insecurity (heck, I draw nudes). I just find nude photos forgettable. Mainly, they require NO talent or creativity whatsoever. Next, it's the principal of the strip-tease vs. the stripper. With the stripper, once the clothes are off, the show is over. Everything has been seen that there is to see. I can, and do, move on. (Yawn.) The strip-tease, however, has one lingering on baited breath. For that reason, I find that leaving some to the imagination, waiting for a hint of something more, *much* more titillating, much more memorable, and terribly sexier.
(For the rare one doing astoundingly creative nudes, Muse. I am watching. Well done!)
Bullies are my joyride. What one might dismiss as ego, from me, is actually extremely hard-earned self-confidence based on observation
. I know who I am and what I've done. Now, the founding fathers said, if it stands up to mockery, it has merit. SO... if you bring an ego into my space, prepare to have it poked. People with puffed-up sense of self-importance need validation. I will not validate you. They have to have to make themselves seem more important than they are by picking on people they don't know to make themselves feel bigger. I will pop your balloon
. 🎈 It's a global forum; I like to make them show who they really are to the world. If you stand up to my mockery... props. We can be friends. If not, know that you've made me, and those who you tried to bully, very happy. <3 I don't do requests, even paid ones
. I'd considered it, but I won't say yes to something I'll never have time for. That's not fair to anyone. I always have far too many ideas than I can accomplish in one lifetime. With a YouTube show, a radio show, a social media network, and a clothing business to run... I'm fortunate to get ideas out. If you want references, you will see some reference poses in my Scraps folde
r. --- That being said, feel free to throw ideas at me. Your thoughts have been known to influence my shots on occasion. What I do is *not* Cosplay
. Cosplay is the *exact* (to.the.stitch) representation of TV and movie characters, and I do what I've done before the term was invented: way back in '79. "This isn't a fucking costume. It's a way of life." Sharon Needles
I do not approve of any movement which requires approval or validation from an outside source. I further do not approve of any group which thinks anyone should receive special treatment because they were accidentally born a certain way. I find it insulting.
I am an advocate of *self-acceptance* and *self-creation*. Those things require no one outside of yourself. Nobody can give that to you or take it away. I succeeded because
nobody believed in me, because people actively
tried to stop me, and I'm proof that no person needs a pat on the head to succeed.
I am an individual
, not a gender, and not a size
; those are shallow, vapid concepts, and entirely irrelevant.
I am a Scientist, a Historian, a Mythographer, a Philosopher, a Comedian, a Model, a Musician, an Artist, and above all of these I am a Transhumanist. I seek to transcend humanity itself
. I will not fit any box so don't include me in them.
I've accepted that, as a model, one *must* accept that they will be objectified. That is the contract you enter into by presenting yourself in a two-dimensional forum. The picture is all the audience has to know you by, and *it's okay* that it's appreciated for what it is. I'm cool with that. By all means. - What I find disturbing is when people attempt to shame and dissuade models from showing their bodies, like it's a bad, disrespectful thing. That is the only kind of objectification I can't stand: the kind that comes in the name of "feminism".
*Nobody* can tell an IQ or depth of a person through a photo. *That* assumption is objectification at its worst, ladies.
"Covers exist to entice someone to look further, it's what's beneath the shallow exterior that matters. Wanting me for the purely prurient is like wanting a supercomputer to simply play pong."
