Annasthesia Awful is probably the biggest Pokemon fan we have interviewed on SimplySxy and will ever be. Cosplaying characters such as Misty and Magikarp, this beauty is comfortable in her own skin as she shows off her amazing tattoos. Get to know Annasthesia better in this fun interview as we ask her some quirky questions!
Hi Annasthesia thank you very much for your time taken to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Can you share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Thank you guys for having me! Oh boy! I am one of the few born and raised Floridians I know who hasn’t moved away yet. I can’t do snow and the cold. This is home to me, but I’m lucky enough to have traveled the world and never know where I’ll be month to month. As far as “me” and who I am, I’m probably the opposite of what a lot of people assume about models, especially nude models. I’m just an incredibly shy, introverted, insecure little homebody who spends all of their spare time hiding from the sun, watching Nip/Tuck & Game of Thrones reruns, and playing video games! Also, I love and have raised cats my entire life. That part is important, lol.
What kind of genre do you love to model?
I love just having the opportunity to be in front of the camera, no matter what I’m doing. I have noticed, though, that despite all of my personal insecurities, I feel like I’m most confident once my clothes come off. I have no idea why that is, but I’ve learned to embrace it. That aside, I love doing cosplay modeling. It gives you the chance to really have fun with that you’re shooting, and to turn into someone else in front of the camera!
Your tattoos are amazing and very eye catching. Do you have a personal favorite for one of them?
I’m most fond of the aquatic sleeve on my right arm that I’ve been working on for the past few years with Adam France in Columbus, Ohio. I only get to fly out for a sitting about once a year, and he’s my favorite artist by far that I’ve worked with. Everything in my sleeve was designed by him. It’s fun being able to tell people, when they ask about my tattoos, “Oh that? Yeah, it’s a rabbit and a squid battling for a carrot sandwich.”
How did your love for Pokemon begin?
Innocently, and full of adventure, haha! I remember when they released the TV show in the US when I was younger and another girl in my class and I were so pumped. We had magazine ads for the upcoming games in our school lockers. You know, like cool kids do. I’ve played every Pokemon game since their Red/Blue releases.
Do you have any pet peeves or things that particularly annoy you?
Oh boy. Not using your blinker when you make a turn, not saying ‘Please’ and ‘Thank You,’ pretty much all willful ignorance and close mindedness. One big one is when people come up to me and grab my arms and start twisting them around to look at my tattoos without even asking me. I’ll happily show you my skin art, but it’s never okay to grab a total stranger and inspect them without so much as a “Hello.”
If you could have a superpower, what will it be?
Oh, I’ve been thinking about this since I was a kid! It’s still so hard to choose! It’s a cross tie between: being able to morph into any creature on demand, being able to read minds at will, or telekinesis. It’s a tough choice!
Which were the sexiest characters you have Cosplayed before?
I don’t know if I would call many of my cosplays “sexy,” lol. I play Misty, a 12 year old girl in Pokemon, and a Magikarp. I also have cosplayed Quinn from Daria, another young teenage girl, there’s Alex from A Clockwork Orange. I’d say Lilith, from Borderlands, is defintely sexy to me. Oddly, though, I’d say that my CL4P-TP cosplay (based on an anthropomorphized artistic design by artist NoFlutter) is probably my raciest cosplay.
Do you already have in mind your Halloween costume for this year?
Nope, lol. I usaed to always plan so far ahead for Halloween, but I’ve been so busy this year! It’ll be a surpise, to me and to everyone else.
It’s been a great pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy, Annasthesia. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Confidence. You can be Kate Upton or Mila Kunis and if you’re not confident enough to put yourself out there, to take the criticism from others for being and looking like yourself, then nothing will ever bud from that. Being brave enough to say “This is me, flaws and all. Take it or leave it” is incredibly sexy, in my eyes. Confidence is key.
I can be found on CosplayDeviants.com and SuicideGirls.com, currently. I also travel and do promotion work with GotVape.com and promote various glass blowers, clothing companies, and other ventures. Currently the only immediate projects I’m working on are new cosplays for convention season with CosplayDeviants.com, and hoping to re-open my Etsy store to save enough money to (hopefully) travel to the west coast to shoot all new material with all new photographers. Wish me luck!
