On Saturday August the 3rd, I did a photo shoot all dolled up for the first time. It was an assignment from my therapist, now my gender therapist. She wanted me to get an idea of how I would look in a wig and makeup and dressed as well. It was the first time I put on a full face so to speak. It included foundation, of course. In addition I used an eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, mascara, and lip gloss. I didn’t use blush as I had not purchase any as of yet. I had put on a nice dress, hose, and both flats (my girlfriends) and black heels with a strap (my own).
I dolled myself up on a Saturday after my wig and makeup came the day before. After I came home from the pool after getting a little sun and a swim I started my makeup routine. First I applied the foundation (my girlfriends), then I penciled my eyebrows, applied eye shadow, and put on mascara. Finally, I put on some lip gloss, and donned my wig.
We started out with my girlfriend taking the pictures. She had some trouble keeping the phone camera steady. But, I also took a bunch of selfies. It was fun doing different poses, and trying different facial expressions; the whole time trying to look as feminine as I could. At the end of the day I was happy at my first attempt at being all dolled up as I call it.
Since this photo session, I have had several more, plus a couple of times dolled and just hanging around the apartment. It feels so good to look like a woman all be it with some manly features (just being honest). I love it so much it makes me want to go out dolled up, like to dinner or shopping. But not quite yet, I need to be more comfortable with the world seeing me dolled up.
