OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA, September 17, 2010 – Alternative modeling troupe Toxic Goddess is featured in a seven page article in issue six of Darkfaery Subculture Magazine. The article, written by Jacob A. Grim, is a comprehensive look at Toxic Goddess from it’s inception in 2004 until today. Photos by founders Robert Henry and Dirk Hooper run throughout the article and showcase Toxic Goddess models, from the past to the present.
“This article represents the most encompassing treatment that Toxic Goddess has ever received,” said photographer Dirk Hooper, “and outside of an art gallery, I’ve never seen our work printed better. This is definitely a collector’s item for fans of Toxic Goddess.” Toxic Goddess models Rockelle, Oshun and Dame Lebeau were interviewed for the article as well as founders Robert Henry and Dirk Hooper.
Issue Six of Darkfaery Subculture Magazine also has articles and photos of April A. Taylor, Vira Dee Undead, the Midwest Ink and Metal Fest, True Blood season three and A.R.G.O. Suspension Team of Tulsa. The magazine is available for purchase online at http://www.magcloud.com/browse/Issue/109773, and at newsstands and Darkfaery Subculture Magazine event appearances.
Darkfaery Subculture Magazine has been an underground alternative source for music, costume, and art enthusiasts since it launched as ‘dark zine’ on the streets of Dallas, Texas in 1985. It has since undergone several transformations since moving to Oklahoma City from the paper zine known as The Vampire’s Playground in 1993 to the diskette compuzine of the same name, until finally it reached a large enough fan base to become Darkfaery Subculture Magazine Online in 1997.
Through the years it has been DFSM’s mission to bring together the underground music, art, and fashion scenes that have, in the past, tried to remain exclusive and reclusive unto themselves. DFSM is committed to stamping out pretension among the genres so that fans and industry professionals can come together to create something memorable, and darkly beautiful, for years to come.
DFSM reflects a unique lifestyle which both its readers and publishers strive to be a part of. Featuring and attending local events, conventions, DFSM continues to transcend the labels and prejudices placed upon the freakish, interesting, weird world upon which we live.
Toxic Goddess is part modeling troupe, part art movement and part cultural phenomenon. Founders Robert Henry and Dirk Hooper conceived of Toxic Goddess as a way to present their work to the public in the best way possible and are joined by makeup artist Danger Darling and effects artist Scott Van Eck. The guiding principle of Toxic Goddess is to do alternative modeling in a way that not only represents and showcases women in a positive and empowering manner, but to back that up by making the actual models part of the creative process and to share in the venture’s success. Toxic Goddess wants to reach out to, unify and promote, various underground communities including music, fashion, art and alternative social groups, particularly if they are run by or positive toward women.
