Paranormal Punk Zink Magazine

Wear-Parnormal PunkZink magazine featured the Imani Zombie jacket for the Video edition of the Sept Issue. Ty-ron Mayes, creative director and stylist for the shoot describes the shoot as a tribute to punk and The Metropolitan Museum Of Arts Exhibition. The shoot was named Paranormal Punk after the trio noticed what appeared to be a reflection of a ghost or skull in the reflective mirror on set of the shoot. The model was asked to do Zombie like movements to create the magical display she portrays in the video. Photography & Video Gail Hadani, make up artist Paul Innis,  Direction Ty-Ron

ZOMBIE BOY: I’m Just Dying To Beat You!

16eb3d1f-0fc8-45cc-87b4-3b29996c870f-forty_seven_ronin_ver3_xlg-1Excitement is in the air as an unusual personality gears up to become the Hollywood’s next action villain. Zombie Boy is just dying to beat you Keanu! as  to appear in Keanu Reeve’s 47 Ronin. My friend Rick Genest AKA Zombie Boy is set to appear as one of the antagonist in the new film 47 Ronin! And with his frightening tattooed exterior, The Prince of Ink is set to leave and indelible stain and some bruises in Hollywood as it is rumored that he may fight Reeves to the death. In a sneak preview… Z.B. is seen crawling through the rafters as he emerges from the shadows…. what happens next…. well we will all just have to wait and see.
Although 47 Ronin has had a lot of delays and has been plagued with constant revisions and ever-changing release dates, Ronin is now scheduled for a Christmas Day release stateside. Here’s a synopsis. The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the Ronin (the term for Samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another. It stars Keanu Reeves as well as several famous Japanese actor (like Hiroyuki Sanada for example!) in an 18th century Samurai tale of revenge.
 It is a pleasure to witness a young talent such as Zombie Boy grow into a sought after actor. If the 4 newly released movie posters are an indication that Zombie is hot… well, just look for yourself. If a picture is worth a thousand words… then what is a poster worth? Check out his solo poster. Entitled “Outcast”, “Warrior”, “Freak” and “Witch”… can you guess which one he is?

For those of you who are not familiar with Zombie Boy… before he transformed himself into living art emblazed with tattoos and disturbing morbid imagery, Zombie Boy was born Rick Genest of La Salle, Quebec and grew up in Chateauguay.  “Rico” first appeared on the world platform in the Lady Gaga’s video, Born This Way. No, that was not make-up in the video… at least not on Rico. Over 80 percent of his body is covered in tattoos, including his face. Rick’s tattoos are what he calls, his “project”.

Let me see how many way can I can this? Can you say Style Fashion Week Jamaica? When I received the call from creative director & stylist to the stars Ty-Ron Mayes about an offer to show my collections from the organizers of Style Week Jamaica, I have to admit I was a little surprised to find out that fashion was so important to the Jamaican people.

I soon also realized that Style Week Jamaica is a yearly occurrence that all of the very proud Jamaican people look forward to. The event was produced by Dwight Peters of Saint International Models, The Jamaica Tourist Board & hosted by male supermodel Tyson Beckford. The focus of the event was to shine a light on the multitalented group of
