All dressed up and nowhere to go...

Well on Sunday I decided to have a day to myself and my camera so I got up, had a shower, a shave and put WAY too much makeup on! Last time I dressed and went to the beach I hardly had any makeup on apart from foundation and a little mascara and eyeliner, well... I certainly made up for it this time - oh dear, oh dear! The outfits needed to match the boldness of my makeup so I dragged out the lovely cocktail dress I wore the first time I went out (The Way Out club with Nicky - I'm forever indebted) got out my hardly worn red satiny heels and a red bolero, why am I describing it when I can just show you? Who knows, here it is:
All dresed up...
All dressed up...

Those who know me will know that I absolutely adore my corsets, I love the feeling you get wearing one and the shape they give you. I'm not sure if there's a more feminine item of clothing. I recently treated myself to a new corset as a Christmas pressie, I love my other corsets but this one somehow is even better, I feel it has limited applications but for those few occasions/outfits it's going to be fab!
Let's go to work...
Let's go to work

It's a Vollers 22" overbust, I can get it pretty much fully closed for (very) limited periods, fear not though I'm working up to wearing it for longer periods.

The worst thing about getting all dressed up is having to take it all off, especially nail varnish - it's like a slap in the face "ha ha, you're a boy and boy's aren't allowed to wear makeup or anything nice". Well, I'm certainly not the first to wear it and I'm pretty sure I won't be the last.

Anyway, that was my Sunday. Thanks to everyone that's commented on my posts or my pictures, the encouragement is greatly welcomed and appreciated.

Rise of the T-Girls!

I came across this video, it contains some very wise words:

Just do it! Get over the fear!

The good old BBC have written a great little article on (funnily enough) the subject of Gender Dysphoria/Transgender, it's from the Radio 1 Sunday Surgery program that deals with all matter of problems people might have. It's great that the BBC did such a program as they have such a massive audience, I'm sure it help a lot of confused people. My favourite comment at the bottom is: "I'm normal then? what a relief."

Just a little one this time, more to come...

As stated in New Years resolutions entry, I'm going to get my face zapped this year to get rid of the horrid stubble. Hussar! A good friend of mine provided a link to this thread: Laser Treatment: Does it work, and how well? which has been a great help, thanks Steffie. A link from that thread that explains hair growth cycles is also interesting reading.

I'm now looking at where to get it done, being in Devon now does restrict things somewhat however I have found McDiarmid-Hall Clinic that does do "Laser" (sorry I had to put it in quotes, when ever I write or say "Laser" secretly do a Dr. Evil impression in my head - sometimes it gets out), if anyone has had any experiences of this clinic it would be great to hear from you.

Well, as of Monday I may have a lodger for a few weeks so Jenn and excessive internet usage may have to go on hold, I shall endeavour to keep you informed. That reminds me, I will have to take the nail varnish off my toes :o(

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!I decided to start 2009 as I mean to go on so I took myself on what turned out to be a cold and blustery walk at Slapton Sands.

I wore the very popular boot of the moment... ugg! Some baggy combat trousers, a stripy long-sleeved t-shirt, my pineapple zipped hoody and my coat which didn't really go with the rest of the outfit in my opinion so I took it off for some of the pictures.

I tried to go very minimalist with my makeup, unfortunately I did have to have full foundation to cover stubble which was a bit of a shame but needs must, I put a little eyeliner on the waterline under my eyes, a small amount of mascara on my upper eyelashes and clear lip gloss. That's it! It's amazing the difference such a small amount of makeup (bar the foundation) can make, as I'm sure you can tell I'm very pleased with myself.

Once at the beach I got my camera out of the boot, deciding to leave the tripod behind and embarked on my leisurely stroll up the beach finding it's quite an art walking in a feminine way on a beach, this took a minute or so to work out.

I love sitting and looking at the sea - especially when it's rough - it's such an amazing and powerful thing that must be respected, I could go on but I shall spare you.

Looking forward to 2009
Looking forward to 2009 (The larger version didn't fit so it had to be this wee size)

Sea air + wind + wig = lots of tangles! I'm not sure it will ever be the same although I think it was semi-worth it for the first time out in 2009 (I need to make up for 2008), the first of many I hope.
