8th Merciless Model - Hesmarie HellFire

Hesmarie HellFire
(8th Merciless Model - May 8, 2011) 

I started her modeling career at the tender age of 12 where she successfully and eagerly did high fashion ramp. Following in which she competed in several beauty competitions, such as Miss Hiberdeen, Miss Madibeng to name a few.

Hesmarie was making a strong well known name for herself, and due to her success as a model, she got put on the list for Miss Teen SA and to the dismay of other competing models, Hesmarie also got a contract to go to Los Angels. Hesmarie had a decision to make as her future career as a model could have been riding on this opportunity, yet she turned down this extravagant offer and decided to rather focus on her education instead. 
Hesmarie's decision was based on wisdom for her future, she quotes, " I have always been a realistic model, and this is probably one of my down falls as a model. I believe that you cant ride on your "looks" forever. Life is unpredictable and physical "beauty" fades."
After a few years, Hesmarie moved out of the modeling industry and decided to help give classes at a modeling school in Brits, but she soon grew tired of all the white ball room gowns and high heels that raped the souls of their feet and not too mention all the "Barbie girl" types that thought they were better than her. At the blooming age of 16, Hesmarie competed in her final modeling show before she the left the scene to explore newer pastures in the form of drama & arts.

Hesmarie's heart has always been different to the types she had to deal with and work with as a child, she is and will always be an Alternative Lady. The type of Lady if you get the opportunity to meet her, you will love and cherish forever, she is the lady that will make the crowd laugh, by falling flat on her face walking the ramp, and will stand up and give you a bow with a smile. She is the type of Lady that stands outside having a cigarette while the rest of the "So Called Barbies" fuss about their hair and make up, and still outshines the rest on the ramps.

Hesmarie then moved into the Alternative scene where she did her first Alternative Photoshoot with Charlette Coetzee for Emalyth. This was a huge success, because a combination of a beautiful, talented model, and great photographer.

In Hesmaries own words, " I see modeling, especially "Alternative" Modeling as a way of self expression. Just like make up does for some girls, I know that no two females or models for that matter are in any way alike. Yes, we can slap on the same make up, dress in the same clothing and shoes, but that will never make us the same."

All Hesmarie's shoots have a little hint of Hesmarie Hellfire in them, you will see it straight away when you look at her work, an art in itself.
My goal would be to get Alternative Modeling more out there as its a form of art very little people recognize, and its not about who's the prettiest, skinnies or makes the most but the fun and love for modeling and just being yourself.
