Miss May 2006: Ancilla Tilia
Let me tell you my story...
I was born on a sunny evening in 1985 around the 6 o' clock news as a healthy blond, blue eyed baby girl. My mom was delighted to see me growing up as a bright, down to earth young lady. Unlike many girlfriends of mine who wanted to be a princess, supermodel or rockstar I had a big heart for animals and had my mind set on being a veterinarian. Offcourse this job would require some years of college so during high school I settled for jobs as a salesgirl. Later on I made a "career switch" to being a waitress in a 50's diner/bar. I had quite a good time there, it was very educational and a lot of fun. It was in this place that a magazine photographer spotted me and asked me to pose for the cover of a girls magazine (nothing dirty, I was a minor may I remind you!). At first I was a little reluctant and nervous at the thought of seeing myself on the shelf of a newsstand. But after careful consideration I decided I had nothing to lose and go for it.
The shoot turned out to be so much fun! I had a great time chatting with the makeup artist and running around being all glammed up. Looking at the results though, I couldn't quite identify with the person in the pictures. I am passionate and adventurous but the girl in the pictures reflected a sweet but boring girl-next-door type of girl! So when an amateur nudity photographer I knew from internet asked me to model for him in a more erm... naughty way I didn't have to think twice!
The shoot turned out as a very pretty old-style glam black & white series. I put the shoot on an online modeling community and before I knew it I was bombed with requests from photographers amongst which three from people who did test shoots for Playboy magazine... Wow, this was a lot more than I ever dared to dream of. I got some paid assignments which made a great addition to my skimpy waitress salary and met up with the playboy team to discuss the shoot. The photographer turned out to be a huge admirer of Helmut Newton (but then again, what photographer isn't these days) and we decided to do a studio shoot based on a picture in one of his books. The shoot took two days, and was very hard work, but the end result was worth the work times ten. I was intended to grace the cover, and a little disappointed when Netherlands' hottest actress was published in the same issue. My luck though, the issue turned out to be the best-sold Dutch Playboy in history. All of a sudden lots of old classmates, neighbors and colleagues remembered my phone number hahaha!
After the publication of my Playboy issue, I found myself in a place where — being tied to a year contract — my options for modeling in Holland were quite limited. Although being a professional model was never in any of my plans, I understood that I was given this opportunity, and more important, the Playmate title, that could open so many doors that I couldn't just leave it at this. I figured, if I couldn't do a whole lot in Holland, I would find my luck somewhere else, and what would be a better place to do this then the Mecca of modeling, Los Angeles! I made a list of people I longed to work with, both models and photographers as well as websites, most of them dedicating much of their work to various streams in the fetish world. I sent them an email that I would stalk them for eternity unless they worked with me, packed my bags and took off. I was astounded to find that most of them were actually delighted to work with me! You can find most things I did there on this website. Returning to the Netherlands, I started working on getting my own website together. Despite of some problems with web designers, a lot of people kept supporting me, following my work and signing up to my mailing list, which I am so thankful for! Now, finally, everything has come together and I hope to be able to do much more with AncillaTilia.com, working together with more photographers, cute colleagues and updating you with a lot more sexy, interesting and pretty material of my own taste then ever.
For now, I really like this unexpected road my life took and who knows when I'm 50 and my modeling career runs to an end I will become a veterinarian too. After all, dreams are better when lived.
These are a few of my Favorite things:
Daily Clothing: Glamourous, tight jeans, summer dresses, hot secretary/suburban style Fetish clothing: silky things, detailed fabrics and designs such as lace, corsets (preferrably overbust+silk) garters stockings (backseamed nude or black, lace top), latex dresses.
Shoes: Court shoes, 6" heels, classic pumps, stiletto's, open toe's, metal pin-heels, 3" platforms.

I have too many! I especially love quality horror. I remember when I was little, I had a book with scary close-ups of tarantulas and even back then I used to challenge myself to turn the next page and stare one of those monsters in the eye...
Tv: Jeesh... are you sure you wanna know this stuff?? I’m such a chick... Documentaries mostly but also Sex and the City, Oprah, America's next topmodel and Southpark.
Music: Pretty much any female r&b singer... Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, JoJo (seriously, she's alright) but also Rammstein, Beethoven, Limp Bizkit and Jamiroquai

Drink: I'm a coffee junk! Other then that tea, water and orange juice... I’ll have some red wine when I'm in a wild mood.
Book: I like to visualize stories, so I'm not too big on reading fiction. I usually read biographies or informational books like "the Devils Son" or "Helter Skelter." Other then that I have a lot of photography books and I my inherited antique version of Grimm's Fairytails is one of the first things I would save in a fire.
