There is a common misconception among gamers that hot girls do not play "real" video games. LuckyLu proves that this is not true. She is not only a professional model and SuicideGirls Hopeful, but she also loves video games. In fact, LuckyLu loves League of Legends so much she actually has a tattoo of Lulu on her arm. Now that is dedication! I sat down with her and discussed her play style in LoL, modeling, and what happens when other gamers online find out she is a girl.
When did you first start playing video games?
I grew up playing video games. I played Diablo 1 and 2 at a young age and then moved on to Grand Theft Auto and a few others.
Are many of your RL friends gamers as well?
Yep most of my friends are gamers, too. We all usually run together in games.
What role do you usually play in League of Legends?
I'm usually a support or mid player specializing in Zyra and Lulu in 5v5 and Teemo in 3v3.
Who is your favorite champion?
Any advice you're willing to share on item builds and strategies for Lulu?
A good build for Lulu would be to start with Philosopher's Stone and Kage's Lucky Pick with Ionian Boots of Lucidity for the cooldown reduction. From there, your gold gen should be very nice and you should be able to rush a Rylai's Crystal Scepter (the extra HP will help you survive). Then get Hextech Revolver, upgrade your boots to level three movement speed with the Alacrity Enchant, and get Shard of True Ice since that builds off the Lucky Pick. Next build your Philosopher's Stone into a Shurelya's Reverie. Your last item will be situational and just depends on what your team needs.
Strategy wise, I would say to hang near your AD Carry as much as possible. Use "Help, Pix!" on them if they're having trouble lasting hitting or if they are chasing and the other champ needs to be slowed use Help, Pix and Glitterlance. You should Whimsy any high damage dealing champion and use Wild Growth on your tank as they engage. Take a point in Help Pix first and max it as soon as you can. Get Glitterance early and one point in Whimsy but max that last.
Are there any champs you absolutely hate going up against?
Leona and Blitzcrank. Those two are my worst!
If you could change one thing about League of Legends, what would it be and why?
I would try and create a bigger scene for Twisted Treeline as some teams, including my ranked team, only specialize in 3v3 ranked.
What type of reaction do most people have upon hearing you are into video games? Are people surprised? Skeptical?
Most guys laugh and think I'm one of those "my little pony" type gamers. Then I bring out Tekken 5 just to prove a point. After that they take me a bit more seriously.
Do you tend to get a lot of random friend requests or messages with pick up lines when other gamers online find out you are a girl IRL?
I have been given so many pick up lines from other players when playing ranked with my team. We are called "2GuysAndAGirl" so they always ask who the girl is and when I say it's me they tend to either be funny and fail at flirting or they try too hard and lose focus.
In addition to League of Legends, are there any other games you are currently playing right now?
My other games at the moment are Diablo 3, Age of Empire Online, and Alice: The Madness Continues.
So you are also a SuicideGirls Hopeful. What made you decide to get into nude modeling?
Well I fell in love with SuicideGirls at a young age and was always into modeling before. Just after my 20th birthday, I checked the SG site and saw what I needed to send them in order to join and since then I have been part of it. I wasn't going into the direction of nude modeling at all until SG came along, haha.
Have you done any other modeling outside of shooting sets for SuicideGirls?
I have been modeling since a young age. At 11 my mom enrolled me into Figures Modeling Agency where I learned Ramp, TV, and Photographic Modeling.
Would you ever consider getting a video game-related tattoo?
I have Lulu tattooed on my forearm but there are a few others I want to eventually get as well.
Anything else you'd like to add?
A tip for all League gamers out there: make sure you can play more than one lane as well as jungle. It is good to have a few roles you can play well so when it comes to ranked and you can't play mid or support, you can at least top, ADC, or jungle. And buy wards even if you are not support. One ward every now and then to help the support get their build quicker won't kill you!
Where can fans find more of you?
