The Smoking Jacket: Where are you from? Where are you hanging out these days?
Luxlee Suicide: I’m originally from NYC, but I’ve been bouncing around the USA for the past year or so and am currently settled down in Austin, Texas.
TSJ: How long have you been modeling?
Luxlee: Only a year and some change! I got into it originally because I’d always wanted to be a Suicide Girl, and since it’s gotten quite competitive I waited until I finished college to have the time. From there things just kind of snowballed!
TSJ: Was it scary or fun or both? When you started to do some sexier pictures?
Luxlee: It was fun! I’ve never had a problem with nudity, and since SG was the first thing I did, the rest was easy. Before I started modeling for photos, I did some anatomy/ and figure drawing classes as well, so I was totally comfortable with it. Then I started modeling for photos fully nude, so there weren’t many limits to cross.
TSJ: What is sexy to you?
Luxlee: Humor and the ability to have an exhilarating conversation. I also find honesty really sexy. On a physical level, I like tattooed men and beards but the biggest turn on for me is height, even though I’m only 5’4″! Send the freakishly tall dudes my way!
TSJ: How long have you been involved with the Suicide Girls?
Luxlee: They were my very first modeling gig! I had pretty high hopes going into it, there was definitely some fangirl worship going on. But they fully delivered; I actually have made lifelong girlfriends through that website. Just recently I went to Las Vegas for a shoot fest there, and spent the week at a palatial mansion inside a hot tub with 25 Suicide Girls circulating. Living the dream!
TSJ: What about your arm tattoo with the candle/eye? So striking! What does it mean to you?
Luxlee: Thank you! That was the first tattoo I got in Texas. My buddy Clamore Wolfmeyer did it for me, he makes some really rad spooky tattoos here in Austin. Burning the candle at both ends…
Sexy outdoor pics – are you a fan?
Luxlee: Yes! Back East, that was my favorite thing about springtime. Being naked outside just feels right, and you also don’t have to worry about grass stains.
TSJ: It seems like you have a wide variety of lingerie. What’s your favorite half-undressed kind of getup?
Luxlee: This is a lame, expected answer, but Agent Provocateur is where it’s at. I have to wait until they have a sale, but when they do I snatch everything up. I like an older vintage style generally. Nothing does it for me quite like nylon thigh highs, satin garters and high-waisted belts with the snap hardware, the kind of lingerie that’s actually meant to stay put underneath your clothes all day.
TSJ: What else are you up to, when you’re not all about being a babe?
Luxlee: I just got back into retail, I went to college for fashion merchandising. Aside from working full time, I really like to read, cook, and do yoga. I really like checking out restaurants and bars, eating new things!
TSJ: What kinds of modeling projects would you like to try out next?
Luxlee: In the past year, I think my favorite shoot was with Chas Ray Krider, I would love to do something so stylized and lighting-based again. More hair and make up, too! I’m dying to get a little crazy with that side.
