Height / Weight? 5’8 . 115 pds
GGotW: Where did you get the name Wednesday Mourning? Was there an inspiring faction or was it taken from a source or two?
WM: I am very happy you asked this as it seems to have been a source of confusion. The Wednesday part came from a victorian nursery rhyme *not* from the Addams Family. My mother started calling me Wednesday when I was about 13 and that has been my chosen name since. A few years ago I added the Mourning onto it to differentiate myself from the Addams family and for anyone else using that name…and it’s funny! I love creepy-silly things and my name pretty much expresses that.
GGotW: Favourite colour?
GGotW: Favourite food?
WM: Chicken Fried Steak or Chicken Fried Venison YUM! (I’m a Southern gal)
GGotW: What part of the country do you live in?
WM: I live in Hollywood, California
GGotW: Was the gothic modeling your first genre, or did you start in another field and move into Goth?
WM: Nope it is my first and will always be my main genre. I have specific tastes and preferences that I have had since a child that will never change. I.E I do not “genre hop”...this is who I am through and through.
GGotW: Who's your favourite photographer to work with?
WM: That’s a very hard question, I like each one for different reasons. I enjoy spending time with Rebekah Boyle as she seems like the creepy sister I never had, and Renard Garr is so excited about his work that it’s a blast shooting with him. Each one has their own great qualities artistically and individually that I just can’t answer that question :)
GGotW: What keeps you busy when you're not modeling?
WM: Reading... lots of reading.
GGotW: When you model are the clothes yours already, or are they bought / designed special for the shoot?
WM: Lately a lot of the clothes have been provided for me in exchange for promotional use by the designers, but when I started out I had to provide all my own.
GGotW: What's your favourite outfit to date?
WM: Iv’e worn some very interesting things in the past, my current favourite would be a 1800’s style corset and Panniers I wore for a shoot for Lovely Creature Corsetry.
GGotW: What will you not shoot, or are you limitless?
WM: I will not shoot nudes, typical pin ups, cliché vampire things (fangs and fake contacts) or anything that I find boring (like a GAP ads;).
GGotW: Have you ever been ask to do something in a shoot and weren't sure you wanted to? WM: Chris Anthony normally prompts me to create a emotion with my face (anger/shock/ horror) and I normally don’t feel comfortable expressing myself physically. I always wonder how it’s going to look on film but he always manages to make it appear real and visceral. I will always work with him, he is one of my favs!
GGotW: What's up next for you? More shoots, shows, or some other project that you're working on in another field.
WM: I have just done a shoot with Chris Anthony for My Chemical Romance’s new album “The Black Parade” coming out October 24th. Although I have yet to see it I am sure it will be great!
