How has social networking influenced your career, is there a specific site you prefer most to interact with your followers and friends?
It has definitely had a positive effect on my career. Most of my networking is done online, so I rely on these websites as a way to gain followers and fans and of course to make money. I really like twitter. I have the most fun on there and also the most followers. I post a ton of pictures and I like the more frequent style of updating. I think it’s easier to interact with my fans and supporters on twitter as well. I try to respond to everyone!
How does a college graduate from Indiana wind up in Playboy?
Funny you should mention college…that is actually the reason I am a Playboy model (or a model at all). I went to Purdue University for school. While I was there, Playboy came for a casting call. I went to it because I had nothing to lose. They picked me out of many hopeful girls. I did the shoot and I LOVED it! I wanted to do more modeling right away. So I joined some networking sites, built up a portfolio, and here I am today. In the meantime I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from Purdue and shot for Playboy a few more times.
What inspired you to pursue modeling?
I have wanted to be a model or an actress since I was a young girl. Growing up in the early 90’s, I saw the big name super models all over TV, magazines, catalogs, etc. and I wanted to be like them. Women like Cindy Crawford, Tyra Banks, and Nikki Taylor were amazing and so beautiful to me. Unfortunately, I grew older but did not grow taller, so I knew I’d never be on the runway like them. I’m glad there are other types of modeling I can do!
You have an outstanding hourglass figure, where do the curves come from and how do you stay in shape?
Why thank you! I actually used to be very skinny. I ran competitively all through High School and most of college. I was really good, so I didn’t care that I wasn’t curvy. But then I stopped running so much and started getting some curves, and I loved it. I then started modeling and got even curvier on purpose. I think it looks better for the types of modeling I do. I finally feel like a really sexy woman! I do some working out still, but I actually lose weight pretty easily because of my metabolism. I want to keep my curves, so no heavy cardio at the time! I do like squats though.
What about you makes you feel, and when do you feel you are your sexiest?
Like I said above, I really like my curves. Modeling has helped me embrace them and help me gain more confidence in general. I also think my smile is very sexy. There’s something alluring about a nice smile. I feel sexiest when I’m in a form fitting outfit and heels or nothing at all!
From reading your previous interviews it appears you enjoy being naked, but what kind of shoots do you enjoy the most?
I do enjoy being naked, for shoots and otherwise. I do like having at least some accessories when I’m shooting, however. I enjoy regular glamour shoots in sexy lingerie and swimwear (especially thongs). I also enjoy dressing up in latex and leather clothing. Pretty head shots are great too.
I’ve actually been in Playboy 7 times now, lol. 6 times in Special Editions and twice in the main magazine. I have also appeared online as Cyber Girl of the week (October 2009) and Cyber Girl Xtra (September 2010). Mariela Henderson is my Playboy name. They made us pick fake names when I first shot for them and was still at Purdue. I picked a random name because I didn’t know I’d be modeling more for Playboy or at all. I tried to change it when I shot for them the next time and people were starting to know me as Stephy C, but they like consistency (which I can understand). So now I specify that it is all me, the same person! The overall experience with Playboy has been amazing. I LOVE shooting for them and hope to do so again very soon. I have also been in other publications including Straight Stuntin’ Magazine, Gorgeous Magazine, 4pm Magazine, and multiple online features/magazines and coffee table books.
Outside of modeling and acting please tell us some of your long term goals….
If I ever get sick of modeling/acting, I want to go back to school and get my Master’s degree (maybe also in conjunction with modeling). I would also want to travel just to travel, especially overseas. Eventually I would like to settle down and maybe have kids as well(or at least some pug dogs, lol)
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
Yes, I have 10 piercings and 1 tattoo. 9 of the piercings are in my ears and one is somewhere else. My tattoo is small and on the back of my left shoulder. It says “sweet” in Tsalagi (Cherokee language).
Of course! I was super nervous for my first shoot, especially because it was a big company AND I would be half naked. But it definitely turned out OK and they were very helpful and supportive. I also get nervous if I’m going to shoot with a really amazing photographer that I’ve never met before. I know their work is awesome, and I just want to make sure I bring my all as well so the images rock. I am shy at first but once the camera starts clicking I get into it and relax to create kick ass pictures!
People would be surprised to know that ___________?
I am really short. I put my stats right on my Model Mayhem portfolio, but everyone always thinks I’ll be taller. I do look taller in pictures though, I suppose. But I am only 5’2”!
You can find out all of my fantasies and create some of your own on http://www.stephyc.com 😉
You’ve got front row tickets to see your favorite artist or personality. Who is it and why?
Outkast! I love their music (together and separately) and I just know they would put on a great show. 2nd choice would be Wu-Tang when ODB was still alive (R.I.P.)
With all of the traveling you’ve done can you tell us your favorite getaway spot?
Miami or L.A. I go to both places for work, but I always spend a few extra days so I can just relax and go out with my friends to clubs, the beaches, shopping, etc.
How does music impact your daily life and your work? Whats your favorite song of the moment?
I love music. I always listen to my iPod or iTunes when I’m online or planes, trains, etc. I’m not a fan of a lot of the stuff that is out on the radio nowadays, so I don’t listen to it very much. One song that I’ve been listening to a lot lately is Old Dirty Bastard feat. Killah Priest, RZA, MastaKilla, and Buddha Monk – “Snakes” (From Return to the 36 Chambers).
What traits or features are must haves for your mate?
Physically I like tall, dark, and handsome…lol. Also great teeth and a nice smile, a strong back, and a larger than average wang. I like a guy that has a great sense of humor, will be a dork with me, doesn’t take life too seriously, is open minded, has goals and ambition, takes care of himself, and has great personal hygiene.
What are the some of the biggest no-no’s?
What’s the craziest thing a fan/admirer has done to get your attention?
I’ve gotten a lot of unwanted wangpics and videos…smh! Fellas, please don’t send them to my email unless I ask for them…you WILL KNOW if I want to see that, lol.
Who have you enjoyed working with the most? And name someone you would love to work with?
My two favorite photographers at the time are RhoPhotos (www.rhotographic.com and http://www.twitter.com/rhophotos) and TH Taylor (www.modelmayhem.com/thtphoto). They are both amazing people and photographers. I have a lot of fun working with them and we always get wonderful images. There are too many other photographers that I want to work with to list! I’m just going to keep striving and shooting until I can work with them all =P
Can you recall the most sensual shoot you’ve ever done and what made it so sexy?
I make all of my shoots sensual! But the most sensual are probably the ones I do for www.stephyc.com, especially the videos. I love feeling sexy and moving slowly while teasing and eventually removing articles of clothing. It is fun to be in front of the camera and know that the members will enjoy it just as much as I do!
Your notoriety increased tremendously from your appearances for Playboy, what advice can you offer to models who are considering modeling nude?
It definitely did. I would say to go for it if they are comfortable with themselves and their bodies. If they have any doubts, they shouldn’t do it until they are completely ready because pictures and stuff online doesn’t always go away. I would also say to hire a great photographer or shoot with someone they are comfortable with so they can get great images.
Any parting words or people you would like to thank?
I’d like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to do this interview and featuring me! I hope that everyone checks out my site and that I’ll have some new members soon. Also follow me on twitter…I tweet a lot! It’s probably the best way to find out what’s new and upcoming with me. =)
