Who is RACHAEL TYRELL??
Hi! My name is Rachael….I began my modeling career in L.A. (I’m a native) years ago at the ripe old age of 27. Seriously? Too short AND too old. Too ____ or not enough ______ (fill in the blanks).
2020 shall be known as the year I emerged from the ashes, rising like a phoenix, owning my power and experience while reclaiming and embracing my femininity.
F*ck “age appropriate”.
I saw that on another blog somewhere. One should also dress occasion appropriate instead, and I agree 1000%.
I’ve been constantly challenging myself in terms of what it means to be an adult and I’ll elaborate more on this in future posts.
I’ve admired many women over the years. Whether historical, fictional, past and present, I pay homage to them in my own way by recreating myself and reinterpreting as I go along. There’s no definitive manual on being me, so I’ll share what I can along the way with you.
So who do I think I am, really? In my opinion, being alluring never dissipates, but certainly morphs over time. If you can create yourself, you can also evolve with yourself.
I honestly feel better now than when I was younger and weighed 92 lbs., go figure. I did all the “right” stuff, but why did it feel so wrong?
You’re not supposed to start modeling when close to 30!
At one point I turned down a lot of gigs (a random one including the cover of DDI International and more) because I can be socially awkward like that. World domination would have to wait, until now, that is….
Here’s a small sampling of some of my historical appearances over the years.
- Dave Naz photoshoot. I’m in his book Lust Circus (warning: definitely NS*FW overall, although my appearance is probably the most Disney out of all of them)
- Vampire Technology photoshoot. I modeled amazing clothes that were handmade out of rubber tires. This pic adorned their homepage for many years. That hobble skirt weighed over 40 lbs.!
Are YOU Too Hot For Hell? I didn’t think so, so there.
I feel as if I’ve lived a few lifetimes already and I think I have four lives to go, if the nine lives thing is true. I also had an interesting job after I semi-retired from modeling. I used to be the junior bookkeeper for one of the most popular alternative pinup naughty sites. “We’re not p0rn, we’re pinup!” Ok then….
That website took me across the country and has been responsible for some major things in my life, for better and worse..
I loved working on Dexter and House, MD. The first Ironman movie was incredible.
Regarding my so-called dancing career…
RIP to my Tokidoki x Hello Kitty bag. You were wonderful while you lasted, which unfortunately wasn’t very long! $3 thrift score that the designer of Tokidoki, Nicola, actually liked on my IG. Super cool.
I should dedicate a post to all of the workouts I do for free on YouTube. You CAN get into shape without the gym!
