Foxy Coqueta model

Model feature : Foxy Coqueta


Foxy Coqueta is an alternative model hailing from Canada, with many looks to her modelling work; whether it's a ferocious pin up or a tattooed dame.


How did you start modelling? Was it something that you always wanted to do, or did it just 'happen'?

In the summer of 2013, I entered a local Pin Up pageant. It was an effort to challenge myself and improve my public speaking. I had so much fun interacting with people while in my pin up character of "Foxy Coqueta"- that I embraced it, and now model for the purpose of a fun hobby, cheer-leading body positivity, and promoting all of the artistic friends & family I meet along the way! Modeling encourages and allows me to love and admire myself loud and proud!


What drew you towards alternative modeling?

My friend Siobhan of Shiverz Designs, creates some amazing alternative accessories, that just beg to be modeled! Wearing her mini top hat fascinators with enormous flower and feather embellishments- I can't help but feel like a fairytale character!

Acting as the subject to help her "outside the box" vision come to life just lights me up inside and out!

I have never fit into the typical "popular" or "trendy" mold. I believe in loving and valuing each person's unique assets, and I have always admired people who have the courage to celebrate themselves without shame.


Do you have any fellow models or heroines who have inspired you?

All of the local ladies I have met in the pin up and alternative modeling world have been so fun and encouraging to work and play with! They have inspired within me somewhat of a personal revolution in the way I look at beauty. Some plus sized, and alternative models whom I admire in particular, are Bianca Bombshell and Dallas Valentine.

What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?

I am excited to continue doing fun and edgy photographic projects! I love anything with an "animal" feel- particularly in forest and water settings.

I love surprises, and I love to try new things- so I can't wait to see what's around the corner!


What has been your biggest modelling achievement so far?

I am just delighted that people are enjoying my photos, and that I am helping to promote local businesses! I have no end goal with modeling, so each photo shoot is a huge achievement, because of the fun I have, and interesting people I meet.


How did you discover your particular interest in alternative fashion?

I love all things whimsical and fantastical! To embrace a new, unusual look is very liberating and stimulating. I love that there is absolutely no limit to what fits into the category of "alternative".


Are there any companies or designers that you'd like to work with?

I am a sucker for all accessories and clothing of beautiful, sparkly, colorful variety! I can't wait to see what Siobhan of Shiverz Designs has in mind for our next shoot! I would also love to work with a local retro style dress company, Cherry Velvet.


What are your goals & aspirations for the future?

I would love to fill my future days with even more photo shoots! I plan to continue exploring new looks and keep mixing it up! It's all for the fun!
