He’s ready now, you can pick him up anytime.
The basics in crossdressing photography are the same as the basics in all photography. Get creative, try different things and think outside the box. You should also wear a lot of makeup and huge breast forms.
As Robert Jordan once said: “There is one rule, above all others, for being a man. Whatever comes, face it on your feet.” Of course, sometimes a man has to face whatever comes while on his knees. Sometimes a man may even have to swallow his pride, among other things. Every picture tells a story so use a fast shutter speed.
Not much really, men tend to wear the same things year after year. Jeans, t-shirts and boots may be boring but they’re comfortable. Make no mistake though, there is a big difference between fashion and style.
As Oscar de la Renta said: “Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.”
There is a comic in today’s paper called Speed Bump with a father and son shopping at the mall. The caption says: Remember son, we’re men. We walk in, we buy, we walk out. No browsing.
Linda Zoe shows that stereotypes are made to be broken wearing an adorable white mini skirt, seamed stockings and white high heels. Remember, you can try on outfits all day long and you don’t have to buy anything.
Tip: always ask the sales girls how you look, some men just don’t have the legs for a mini skirt.
Karolina Meelee (possibly not his real name), is a self proclaimed trap model and sexy crazy gender bitch. I know nothing else about him or his trap, but the man does know how to take a great photo.
Note: if you wear a white blouse its very easy to blow the highlights. Too many men make that mistake.
These tips are from an article called How to Take a Selfie Like a Male Model, so whether you want to be one or date one take your best shot.
- A selfie is only a selfie if (surprise) you are taking a photo of yourself. A photo taken by your girlfriend or co-worker isn’t a selfie.
- Stage your shot. Make sure there’s something cool or interesting sharing the photo with you, like a plane, a limousine, a baller hotel room, the backstage area at a fashion show, or your really cool friends.
- Find your light. Make sure your face is being lit in a flattering manner. Avoid being backlit unless for artistic purposes, in which case that’s so creative!
- Smile, squint a little, show off your abs, wave, give us a peace sign, or pull your best “blue steel.” Whatever you do, do something. Nobody wants to see you looking constipated alone in your office. Which leads us to the last selfie rule.
- Have fun. The most important lesson male models can teach us is how to live our best lives. Say, for example, you’re at an after-party in a Milanese castle. Go out on the balcony with your friends and capture that moment. Then go eat a shitload of prosciutto and tweet about it.
There are several advantages of carrying a smaller bag, but the main one is that its lighter. By the time you pack all your stuff into a large handbag it can weigh twenty pounds or more, which is tough on your whole body.
You don’t need to carry everything everywhere. Sure, its nice to pack extra makeup, pantyhose, condoms, tissues, books, binoculars, a full size camera and lenses, handguns, tasers, and even your Chihuahua, but its not necessary.
Marie Kondo wrote The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which has absolutely nothing to do with purses, clutches, shoulder bags, crossdressers, transvestites or sissies, but she’s making a fortune. Its about determining which items spark joy. So put the dog down, grab your purse, throw in your lipstick, condoms and tissues and go to town.
Britney Smith (possibly not his real name) really nails it with his little bag and is ready to do whatever it is he does.
Since you go to all the trouble of dressing up as a girl from head to toe, take some photos that you can be proud of and share with friends. There are hundreds of articles on posing but its always a good idea to think outside the box and try something different.
Here is the stunning Swiss Tabby (possibly not his real name), totally nailing the ‘Wall Pose’ as it is know by fashion and crossdressing photographers all over the world. The key is not to look directly at the camera or the photographer. This lends an air of mystery, and the pose tells a story.
Is he an international spy working for the government? Is he part of a security team investigating a string of lingerie robberies from local clotheslines and laundry rooms? Is he looking for the ice machine in an upscale hotel, and if so, how does he like his Martini?
Do you see my point? We don’t know, we just don’t know what exactly is going on and why. And this is what makes a great photo.
I think author Thomas Moore said it best: “It is only through mystery and madness that the soul is revealed.” Yes.
Fashion can be confusing for most guys, so start with the basics. These Wolford Fatal 15 Tights come in six different colors so you can wear something different to work each day. Note: learn the dress code (unless you’re the boss).
In this classic photographic study titled Blonde Ambition, the adorable Chloe Dresser (possibly not his real name) expresses the existential dilemma that all men must eventually face. As Jean-Paul Sartre said; “Man is nothing else but what he makes of himself.” Yes.
The tightly corseted Playboy Bunnies, with rabbit tails and ears, will soon be back in business in New York City. Three decades after the original Playboy Club closed in Manhattan, an apparent victim of changing American tastes and views on women, a new one will debut later this year in a hotel a few blocks from Times Square.
Former Bunny Kathryn Leigh Scott has fond memories of the old New York club: “It was an opportunity and it was fun. You put your school clothes in a locker and put on a satin costume.”
The always beautiful Rachel Greene (possibly not his real name) demonstrates how to rock a bunny costume with style and class. As J. Edgar Hoover once said: “If you can’t have fun dressing up in a satin bunny costume then maybe you should wear a suit and a badge.”
Walmart not only has a great selection of lingerie but they have most things in large and extra large sizes. This Avidlove Chemise with G-String is only $10 and comes in black, red and purple.
Stop in one day, pick up some fishing line or something and head to the lingerie department. Don’t worry too much about helpful sales girls rushing over to ask you a million questions, because most are busy stocking shelves and complaining about overtime.
You might think the tricky part will be at the checkout line, but again they don’t really care as long as you aren’t a shoplifter. Just smile and act natural as you pay for you frilly lingerie and G-string.
Note: When you’re in the lingerie section get some full cut panties and ditch the G-string later. If by some chance someone does come up to you and ask if you need help, just tell her you need to buy some big girl panties. She will understand completely.
We took a ride to a local nursery today to look for seeds and Jiffy pots (not the popcorn things). If you ever want something to do on a cold winter day walking around a greenhouse is a fantastic way to spend an hour.
Looking at all the gorgeous flowers and plants made me think about spring and everything I love about it. My friend Michael was obviously thinking about the exact same thing because we looked at each other and both said: SPRING WARDROBE!
Michael likes gardening as well as prancing around his backyard in a nightgown, so this pink mesh nightie is perfect for him. This sheer nightie is sold by Carol Patterson, owner of My Sweet Mischief in Gold Coast, Australia.
The nightie is a soft nylon mesh, lined with a soft nylon knit fabric, but she can make it without the lining if you prefer it sheer. I suggest you get yours with the lining so you can have the neighbors over for coffee in the morning without feeling self conscious.
You have some friends over to watch the Super Bowl and you just want to relax and be comfortable. But you hesitate to wear your pink babydoll nightgown and stockings because you don’t want the guys to get the wrong idea. What to do, what to do?
Consider a simple Kimono. I saw this one on Etsy and even though it may seem slightly feminine and made of silk, its considered Unisex. Slip on satin panties and a bra, put your hair up, go easy on the makeup, and you’re just one of the guys enjoying the game in a comfy robe (more or less).
Note: this one is missing the belt so make sure to keep it closed at all times. Men get easily bored during commercials and may still get the wrong idea. Remind that your Kimono is Unisex and your panties and bra are just a fashion choice.
Working as a secretary can be a very rewarding job for a man if approached in the right way. Most if not all of your coworkers will be women, so you will have a ball talking about clothes, makeup, and cute guys. But there are certain things you have to consider, including occasionally doing some actual work.
Whether or not you can type 100 words per minute may not matter if you dress the part. First of all you need to follow the dress code. Office rules vary but matching lipstick and nail polish are almost always appreciated, especially as you will set an example for the other girls.
The always lovely Linda Zoe (possibly not his real name) demonstrates some of the essentials.
At some point you will have to stop browsing lingerie and porn sites and just do your job, they probably didn’t hire you just because you look great in a short dress. There are files to file, paperclips to sort and the always stressful taking dictation in shorthand (keep your legs crossed).
Now this may be your dream job and the pay can be fantastic, but its not all sitting pretty and reapplying your lipstick. Common secretary duties include answering telephones, greeting visitors, ordering supplies and providing various services to customers. You have to take your job very seriously and you have to be a team player.
Of course, most men have the attention span of a goldfish when work is not all that exciting, so there is one more skill to master. This may take practice but in the long run it will pay off every time. When your boss asks for the report you were supposed to have finished hours ago but completely forgot about, its time for the move.
Slowly stand up from your desk making sure the tops of your stockings are showing, smooth your dress and show him those gorgeous legs. Get close enough to him so that he can smell your perfume and look him right in the eye. Next is the tricky part and you may have to tailor your response to the man in charge.
Lick your lips and say: Oh Mister Manager, I’m so, so sorry, is there anything I can do to make this up to you? Anything? Nine out of ten men will find something for you to do but be discreet, its harder to sleep your way to the top when the other girls are doing the same thing.
Dear Abby: Men can be terrible babies when they are sick. It is a COLD! He’s not dying. Also, I am not his mother!
I made him aware of my disdain for the way sick men behave a number of years ago, but he still acts like the world is ending when he has a cold. How do I tend to him without feeling resentful? – NOT HIS MOTHER
Dear Not His Mother: Even if you aren’t feeling sympathetic, try to appear as if you are and keep your sense of humor.
Note: If he insists on acting like a baby treat him like one. Be aware that some men like this and might never leave the house, so consider a part time nanny or ask his Aunt for help. Most Aunts have very creative ways of disciplining a naughty child, although sometimes they go a little too far.
It has been said that to keep a man, you must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. Now the problem with this philosophy is that you will need a lot of different outfits. Butt wait.
Consider this absolutely stunning Tiki Orchid Apron by Dots Diner. Clearly this is perfect for cleaning the living room, protective enough to whip up a four course meal in the kitchen, and with hot pink trim and black lace its definitely sexy enough for all kinds of bedroom activity.
Whether or not you choose to be a whore is up to you, the important thing is to stand by your man. Note: some men will prefer you to kneel.
You want something light, comfortable and made of silk. And as we all know, the suit makes the man.
The first step in successfully ironing your clothes is making sure you have the right tools for the job. The right tools include an adorable dress, stockings and high heels. Lipstick, earrings and nail polish are optional but can help you channel your inner housewife.
Rachel Boomboom (possibly not his real name) demonstrates the proper stance, its all about balance and posture.
Step 1: Purchase a pink petticoat and put it on. You panties do not have to match exactly, but consider complementary shades, consult a color wheel if necessary.
Step 2: Prance for at least five full minutes. This is one of the most important things you can do to break your petticoat in. Cartwheels and handstands are also helpful but may be beyond your ability. Ask your doctor if such extreme prancing is right for you.
Step 3: Take a few pictures for your friends at work and the boys at the bowling alley. Try different expressions although blowing kisses is a proven favorite with bowlers. If you have some props use them, you really can’t go wrong with cut flowers.
This gorgeous Pink Short Petticoat is available on Etsy and sold by Alison Ballard of Silly Old Seadog.
