Crudelia Von Grimm
I am a bad bad person...part-time grave robber, often relapsing in cannibalism (I swear I tried to stop, but babies are sooo tasty!) ... BUT, SERIOUSLY, do people read profiles, anyway?): I am a make-up & SFX artist, specializing in low-budget horror and stage performances... I tend to cover all aspects myself, from concept to photoshoot styling, as well as costume/props design and realization. Through the years I've acquired the necessary skills in working with leather, latex, silver (as a jeweler), pattern-makings,(including hats)and more... I have created shows for other performers/companies, including large fetish events like Europerve in Amsterdam, and I have also organized my own Gothic parties-events. On top of that, I still find the time to DJ, albeit not regularly. I am known sometimes as DOKTOR ZERO (my 50's styled Horrorshows; but I usually go by the name of CRUDELIA...
And oh, yeah, I lived in parts of North Italy,London, Amsterdam, New York and Sidney; and I am pretty sure Berlin will not be my resting place either, even if I am getting a bit long in the teeth, really, since I was born at the end of the sixties...

Current Residence: Berlin, Germany
Favourite genre of music: Deathrock, Horrorpunk, Batcave, Gothic, Industrial, Dark Electro, 70's Punk, Classical...
Favourite photographer: Joel-Peter Witkins
Favourite style of art: Any method counts
Operating System: as long as it works, who cares?!
MP3 player of choice: same as above...
Shell of choice: ...
Wallpaper of choice: ...
Skin of choice: Fresh, & steamy, just off the carcass...
Favorite cartoon character: Zim, Lenore, Alucard, Devilman...
Personal Quote: I think I can fix that! (looks around for usable stuff)...
