This time we talked to @tehpenguinofdoom - the girl with a rapier and ornate language from @houseofpolefrederiksberg 🦄1) When did you start pole dancing and why?
I started pole about 8 months ago. I was interested in pole for a while, but was a bit shy to go on my own and try it. A friend of mine introduced me and I was completely hooked. One of the big reason I like pole is that I'm really bad at dancing - never know where to put my hands, and that is one problem that is solved here 😝 🦄2) Your pictures pictures with a rapier are so out of ordinary! How do these hobbies affect your life? I've been doing historical fencing for something like 10 years now. And as you can imagine it is completely the opposite of pole - it is all about aggression, confrontation and hitting people. At the same time there are some similarities - both pole and fencing require a good degree of dexterity, endurance and coordination. I think pole has helped a lot with my fencing - thanks to all that new upper body strength and the flexibility. The other way around - well thanks to fencing bruises and pain are nothing new to me.
Though its kind of weird how in one you wear all these layers of protection and on the other - almost nothing - there must be something metaphorical here. 🦄3) Why did you decide to join us?
It was more of a whim ... and a challenge. Also those sweet, sweet instagram likes you get from good photos 😂 🦄4) What was your photoshoot experience this? What can you recommend to a person trying it for the first time?
It was a great and fun experience. I was a bit scared at first, because, believe it or not I'm actually kinda shy and self-conscious, so posing usually ends up being awkward.
One should definitely have an idea of what pictures you want to take, what tricks you want to do and try not to think about the camera.
