Back to Basics-Crossdressing Photography

The internet is full of photos of crossdressers, transvestites and sissies, most blurry and badly lit. Don’t be that guy.

Think composition, color, light, and probably most important, use a tripod and self timer. Or ask someone to take your picture while you concentrate on your pose. Consider asking the girls next door, and if you really can’t find anyone else, order a pizza and ask the delivery boy. Tip well.

Note: the tip does not necessarily have to be money. Use your imagination.

The Halloween Sissy

Its never too early to plan for Halloween. Make sure you have the right lingerie, stockings, garter belt, corset or bra, heels and dress. You’ll also need to do something with your hair, and for many of you that means a wig.

Makeup help is always available and is as close as your local beauty salon. Ideally you’ll stop in ahead of time and make an appointment, then come in that afternoon or evening fully dressed.

Make sure everything fits, practice walking in your high heels, and decide on the right jewelry and perfume. You’ll also need a cute purse or bag for lipstick, extra panties and of course condoms.

Just don’t bite off more than you can chew.

Where’s the bike shop?

So I’m riding around the back roads of Lancaster this morning looking for an old bicycle sign I remember seeing several years ago. After what seemed like an hour but was probably only 20 minutes, I finally found it. I don’t remember where it is exactly but if you want to see it just Google Weaver’s Bike Shop in Ephrata, PA.

An Amish woman on a bicycle rode by and gave me a really angry look, so I shot her (with my camera). My guess is that she was jealous that she had to pedal her old bike up and down the hills while I could do it on a motorcycle.

You can click on the thumbnail for a larger pic but you won’t be able to see her expression. Maybe that’s just how she normally looks. Maybe there’s something funny on the farm, who knows. Next time we’ll chat.

I Don’t Want A Pickle

A wise man once said something I’ve always found to be true:

“I don’t want a pickle, I just want to ride on my motor-cicle. And I don’t want a tickle, I’d rather ride on my motor-cicle. And I don’t want to die-I just want to ride on my motor-cy-cle”

But I also believe in being prepared for sudden cravings. It’s brain food you know?

Master Po: Do you hear the grasshopper that is at your feet?
Young Caine: Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
Master Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

This little guy was only about  two inches long, just like many of you.

Vultures and The Giant Penis Statue

This morning I did what I do every Sunday, take a quick shower and hop on my motorcycle. After a tremendous amount of iced coffee I decided to head down to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland.

This time of year there are very few bald eagles but plenty of weird turkey vultures. Do they eat only turkey you might ask? No, they eat cars! Click on the thumbnail to see the angry birds in all their glory. You can see part of the dam in the background.

These angry birds eat rubber and plastic for some reason, favoring car bumpers, windshield wipers, and if you’re not careful your motorcycle seat and gloves. One guy had a tarp over his truck near the hiking trail, but the others are going to have a very unpleasant surprise when they come back to the parking lot.

I headed up the hill and down to nearby Susquehanna State Park. There I saw something fabulous-a giant penis statue made of stone and brick. Click on the thumbnail to see a sharper shot.

Giant Penis Statue

Much to my surprise, this is actually not a giant penis statue at all. This is the Stafford Flint Furnace and is all that remains of the once thriving town of Stafford.

It just goes to show that nothing is what it seems. For example, on the way home I saw what I was sure were piles of leaves and stakes set up to burn witches. It turns out that they are really Amish tobacco plants drying in the sun, waiting for the farmers to get back to the fields tomorrow. Click on the thumbnail to see a better shot.

Although I’m glad I discovered that truth is not always stranger than fiction, I was a little disappointed that there would be no witch burning. You rarely see that these days.

Romper Room

So I’m minding my own business trying to get through today’s email, and this ad is on the sidebar. Its for Make Me Chic, featuring all kinds of pretty rompers and jumpsuits which I’ve always had a weakness for.

If you’re on Yahoo you’ve probably seen the website and I would suggest checking it out. Their prices seem very good, sizes go up to large and maybe extra large for you big guys. I’m not sure because I want to get out on my bike before the wind picks up.

The only thing that bothers me slightly with this romper is that it cost $27 and they offer free shipping for orders over $29. Maybe I’ll check out their accessories later but I must have this. Its a short convertible floral romper that’s machine washable. Perfect for just about everything except riding my motorcycle.

Note 1: There is a size guide for each item next to the description-use it.

Note 2: Its short, very short. Be aware of that and choose your panties carefully.

The Problem With Sissies

The problem with sissies is that they rarely take good photos of themselves. Maybe its a lack of technical knowledge, but I think its probably more of being in a hurry to get their panties off and change back into non sissy mode.

Yes, I know there are some sissies that dress up and prance around all the livelong day, but I think they are the exception.

So here is a very interesting Tumblr blog I found featuring a little bit of everything. Its called Menelwena for some reason, possibly because that’s her name. Some images are NSFW but are very tasteful. Enjoy.

Photographing Friends

You want to make him comfortable and relaxed so the photo looks natural, not forced. I’ve found the best way to accomplish this is to talk to him during the photo shoot.

Tell him he how adorable he is, or how great his hair looks, or how sexy his beauty mark is. Keep the compliments flowing until you get a shot that reflects his inner poise, confidence and beauty.

And the most important thing to remember is not to make fun of his big nose or hairy ears, after all, nobody’s perfect.
