Check out our one-on-one interview below for more about Cherry Dollface!

Born in California but raised in Portland, OR. Cherry began modeling in 2005 when a photographer snapped a photo of her that later ended up on the cover of Ol' Skool Rodz magazine. She has since been extremely blessed with opportunities that enable her to travel the country and not only transform faces, but lives too!

You travel the world doing Makeovers and photo shoots! Where has been your favorite place to visit so far, and Why?  

Edinburgh, Scotland is probably my favorite city on my travels. Just so well preserved. So much history! The UK in general is my favorite because I am a big Tudor and general English history nerd so it's like Christmas there. 

If you could describe your style in three words, what would they be? 

Unique, Vintage, Funky

What songs are you playing while on the road? 

As many different ones as I can! I get so tired of the same type of music all of the time, so I am always changing it. Right now I am listening to a lot of Leon Bridges, Bag Raiders and We Were Promised JetPacks.

Name a piece of vintage / vintage inspired clothing that you can’t live without. 

Vintage 1950s bustier tops! They are so hard to find in good condition and I haven't met a reproduction that fits quite the same.

What's your beauty/fashion philosophy?

No rules!! If you like a color, a technique, a style or whatever, that isn't popular or "proper"... Who cares!! My philosophy is that I dress and style for me!

What's something interesting about yourself most people won't already know? 

I just did a 10 fun facts video on youtube that shows most of the lesser known ones!

Which of your own values would you want to instill in the next generation of women?

Kindness to each other and ourselves. I think women should empower each other instead of competing with each other. And along with that, they should empower themselves as well. It makes me so sad when I give a gal a compliment and she answers with a dig at herself. I think women should be able to go "Hey wait! I am fabulous!" And not be seen as self centered or vain.

What's been your Greatest achievement so far? 

Traveling the world! I never thought my job would take me to so many far reaches and would allow me to hug so many hot babes of so many different races, sizes, ages, backgrounds and countries.

What obstacles did you overcome in order to achieve that goal?

Self doubt. I was scared to make the leap into making this my job, but I did it and I was brave and it paid off!

Most valuable advice from mom...

Mom always told me to be myself no matter what. And also not to take anyone's shit. That has helped immensely as a female business woman :)

What's the rest of 2016 have in store for you?

I leave for my UK tour in a few weeks. Fall tour in Sept/Oct. I am working on a book and a clothing line with Iron Fist for next year. Still buying and selling for my vintage store on Etsy.

Thanks again Cherry for your time, and valuable "big sister" insight on body image and self-confidence <3

If it ain't Paint Fumes, It ain't worth a huff

Corrie Throckmorton

right before a crowd of 9 gathered around the entrance to witness some badass boys do their Uck punk thing. There were PBR's and a conversation about early hip-hop influences flowing where the likes of Wu-tang and Krs-one were mentioned. Soon after, paint fumes arrived and began to set up equipment. Elijah discovered a power string on his guitar had broken, but luckily had a spare on hand. it was in that moment i realized that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.

Prior to a quick google search, I had never heard their music. in between all the chaos of setting up, i noticed josh's naturally curly gray locks which first popped on the scene at year 18; and decided then would be the best time to ask a few quick questions ...

What are your individual names and What role do you play in 'Paint Fumes' ?

Elijah.. lead guitar and vocals
Brett... lead guitar
Josh... drums

I recall meeting Elijah at school in 2011 and gravitated towards his fashion sense. How did you all come together?

B. We met at Sewercide Mansion, did a demo tape, and then he asked if I'd be a part.

J. We met online. Elijah thought I was from Canada. I played at his house (Sewercide Mansion). He asked how much I wanted for playing and I told him 40 bucks for gas. He thought I was coming from Canada for some reason. He's just a little slow sometimes.

Where did you get the name 'Paint Fumes' from?

B. Elijah made it up. I was like "Dude, Do you know how hard it is to come up with a band name and you just nailed it man!". He's probably been thinking about it for years.

E. I like the Ramones a lot and music that makes you feel like you're losing your mind.

can you explain the song writing process?

B. Elijah wouldn't write his lyrics down. Most of the time he would have a melody, but the words come out as gibberish until we perform it live and make it up from there. Sometimes every night it might change, so if we went through a tour we'd be done with a song. It's more feeling based than lyrically based.

What inspires you to do what you do?

B. I do other things to make a living, but this is just the thing I'm best at.

J. I don't know what else to do.

I hear Elijah can puke on command. what other secret skill(s) do you guys have up your sleeves?

E. Blow a bathroom real bad 💩

Latest Discovery:

J. Some wood in my backyard.
