As I’m sure many of you are aware, I moved into my own house at the start of the year. Obviously I was excited for a whole multitude of reasons (like having my own mortgage… yay… adulting) but one of the biggest was having the freedom to crossdress whenever I like.
Originally, I thought this would simply mean that I wouldn’t have to worry about when I would have a free house and I wouldn’t need to plan my crossdressing photoshoots around whether someone else would be home or not (a lot of photoshoots had to be cancelled because of family members not leaving when they were supposed to…). It wasn’t that I would crossdress more often, just that I wouldn’t need to hide when doing it.
However, over the last week, I’ve been breaking one of my cardinal rules.
I’ve been crossdressing without makeup.
Fuck me, I didn’t even wear a wig.
I’m very much a go hard or go home kind of girl; I’ve always said that I wouldn’t see a point in crossdressing without doing the makeup and the hair. For me it’s all part of the same package. I wouldn’t apply that rule to anyone else of course, but for me I’ve always either done everything or nothing at all.
So what was the point then? Is it really such a big deal that I wore a dress around the house without bothering with the rest?
For me? Yes. Yes it is.
It might sound a bit backwards, going from looking like a woman (or at least a close enough approximation…) to being a bloke in a dress, but it’s certainly something I needed.
This wasn’t about being convincing. This was about being comfortable.
I guess that’s the real point of this post; being comfortable. I’ve spent years upon years telling others and myself so many different rules.Wear concealer to hide beard shadow… get a wig the same colour as your natural hair… dress for your body type… All of these different things without remembering the key rule:
Do what makes you feel comfortable and happy.
You want to wear a dress and keep your beard? Do it.
Wearing a bra under your work clothes? Do it.
Wanna walk around your house naked in platform heels? Do it.
We all should do what we’re comfortable with and what makes us happy. For me, that’s about looking as feminine as possible, but sometimes I might just want to wear a skirt because fuck it why not.
DISCLAIMER: Ok so this post got kind of sidetracked… It was actually meant to be about how you can live your regular life as a crossdresser, but you’re all sensible enough to know how to do that anyway.
I did also have the photoshoot just over a week ago (thank you again to everyone who tuned into the Q & A on Instagram!) and I’m going to be posting photos from it on a weekly basis, starting…. NOW
I’m going to post more about this outfit later on in the week, so just consider this a teaser for now!
Hello folks! My name is Kendall and my girlfriend and I run a small business where we sell our handmade art such as hand sewn tie dye clothing, tapestries, jewelry, as well as herbal medicines.
We have been selling very small scale while travelling for the last 4 months of 2016, but have been working fiercely the last month to release our new travel website as well as online shop. This is honestly a dream come true and something we have been working at for about 2 years.
LETS CUT TO THE CHASE
On the 15th of this month, we are releasing our new website and products, and want to include featured fundraisers; among which is a Trans* Surgery Fund.
What does that mean?
We will have a section of clothing & jewelry where 100% of proceeds will go towards a random winners surgery fund. This goes for both online and in our physical booth. Online, the winners picture & story will be featured on our shop’s webpage, and in our booth, the same thing will be nicely displayed at our front table. Our customers, as well as the traffic that comes across our travel website will see your feature and have the option to buy for your fundraiser and/or donate $$$.
Who is eligible?
Anyone who falls in the trans* spectrum and is trying to gather money for surgery. Any surgery, it does not matter. (If you are picked and don’t feel comfortable disclosing your surgery in your feature, that is okay.)
How do I enter?
You can enter by either messaging me @keen-keem, or emailing me at email@example.com. In your message please include your name, age, why you should be featured, and how to get back in contact with you the easiest.
Submissions will be narrowed down to about 50%, and then chosen at random. I am narrowing down submissions because, although everyone deserves to have their dream surgery, let’s face it, it is a lot easier for some people than others. I am still saving for my top surgery after almost 3 years and I know how valuable something like this is. My girlfriend and I are going to take the time to fully read every single submission.
A winner will be chosen on Feb 15 when we release our new shop and website. This doesn’t leave much time! If anyone has any questions, feel free to message me.
Sorry for the lack of quite literally anything; I’ve just moved into my first house (yay) and the internet was postponed for a month because of bad line connections.
I’m in love with this dress so much. I don’t know why I wanted it so badly other than oooooh pretty but absolutely everyone who has seen it has said they want one too!
I’ll be having another photoshoot soon, so if anyone had ideas of what I should wear please let me know. Also, don’t be afraid to ask me any questions! I haven’t had many over the last months and I do miss talking with you all :)
Again, sorry for the lack of content. We’ll be back to normal soon enough!
