Pics of me as a woman

Postby Storage and Disposal » Sun Apr 9, 17:57 2017

So there's a really cool wine bar in my town. We were talking to the owner and she mentioned this drag bingo thing next week and asked if we wanted to go. Sounds like fun and I have the day off, so I said sure. It's coming up, RD has to work, and I'm realizing that I know nothing else about the event. I heard of a college thing where college kids have a drag contest, so that might be it. I know that dressing up is optional, so I don't even know how many, if anyone, are doing it.

So all I REALLY know is that I'm going to a wine bar dressed like a woman in a fairly conservative town and I'm going by myself. I'm a bit nervous, but I want to dress up, so I'm definitely going to do it.

A friend of mine might do my make up, but if she's too busy I'm going without it. I'm going to try to track down some panty hose thing for your waist (You see how much I know about women's clothes? It's embarrassingly little) to keep my love handles in check, but they don't look as bad as I thought they would.

Anyway, figured you guys would enjoy seeing me with just a wig and a dress. I'll try to post pictures of the final product on Tuesday.

That dress is super cute!

If you mean control top pantyhose, I wish you luck. Unless pantyhose has been improved since I last wore it, it's easy to get runs in them or rip if you have a hang nail or it snags on something while putting them on.

I love it! And I love the hair. And the red in the dress. Gah I miss living in a college town. Now I'm stuck in the bible belt.

Though your post did make me wonder... what is drag supposed to represent? Because I'm a cisfemale, not particularly tomboyish , and I own maybe 3 dresses which I avoid wearing unless someone is getting married or I'm too pregnant to fit in anything else. And if I ever found a pair of panty hose in my drawers I'd light it on :fire:. <--- I'm a hypocrite, I'm wearing spanx as I type this. But I guess what I'm saying is... your outfit is almost as atypical for you as it would be for me :)

I'n any case, following. I hope everyone dresses up, too. Sounds like it's going to be fun. My one thought: I hope your makeup friend goes for dramatic eyes and a more neutral berry lip color closer to your natural lip color instead of a fire-engine red lipstick, because I think it would be a more sophisticated look, but i'm conservative. Idunno, maybe you're going for edgy. But I'm just "thinking out loud" here. I'm sure it'll be fabulous regardless.

Hm... I have not explored this idea in my own thoughts, so be curious to see what comes out of it. I guess "drag" for me is a guy dressing up feminine *whatever that means anyway* when he wouldn't otherwise do so, as opposed to my guy friends who e.g. wear skirts and nail polish because they wear skirts and nail polish.

(apologies for the gender binary above, but that's kind of part of it I guess that there's this false binary?)

Yeah, a few. I'd say maybe 3 Kings and 4 Queens, so it was a decent ratio. Not a lot of people dressed up.

The people the owner referred to as dressing crazy definitely didn't fit my prediction. They were outlandish, but definitely not in that insecure, straight way. They did a really good job. The owner convinced a couple of body builders to dress up, which was priceless.

Call me ignorant then. If I do it again, I'll do my own make up like I did this time. But you misunderstand if you think I sought out a pro/make up artist to do it. I think my friend rarely wears make up and when she does, she barely puts any on. It's because of these reasons that I asked for her help in putting it on.

Also, it was a small bingo drag party, so it was extremely relaxed. If there were guidelines like "You have to do everything on your own", and I didn't get the impression that there were, no one made them known. Still, there were only about 7 people came dressed up aside from the two people hosting. It would have been even fewer if they were guilted into doing the entire process on their own. I did for the most part (RD bought me the waist thing) and it was anxiety-inducing. This is a small, conservative town. Going out and buying a dress, shoes, make up, etc, wasn't exactly a welcoming experience. I wouldn't think less of anyone for seeking help with the process.

Meh I have a hard time doing makeup, if I wanted my makeup to look good for something, I'd probably ask a friend for help too. Lots of my women friends get help with their makeup too. That's not cheating. I don't think any one person gets to control what "the spirit of drag" is.

Did you win at bingo that's the real question, Storage

This has been a really neat thread to return to and read through haha sounds like an awesome event!
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.
