Semi-Hiatus

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, because frankly I'm tired.  My daughter was born this past week.  I'm happy to report that both she and my wife are home and healthy.  However it should be obvious to anybody who's ever had a kid that my time is going to rather limited for things like dressing up and doing this blog.  I don't want to abandon it and will do my best but updates will likely become much more sporadic and spaced out.

There will be more tips for crossdressers videos on the way because I had the foresight to pre-record a number of them at once to be uploaded later.  However once I run through my back catalogue I don't know when I'll have time to make more.  I suppose we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.  In the meantime I hope everybody is well and just know that I'm still around... just very very very busy.

Crossdressing Tips for Beginners #7: Wigs & Hair



Back again!  Wigs are such a wild card, they can completely make or break a look and they're also one of the hardest thing to give general tips about.  However I'm damn well going to try!

Early Dressing Memories: Nail Polish

Every now and then I find myself reminiscing about the earlier days of my dressing.  As I think I've mentioned before (or maybe not, I'm too lazy to look through old entries right now) High School was a bit of a dry spell for me.  I experimented with dressing in grade school but when my mother got married I suddenly found myself with step-siblings when I'd been an only child before.  So privacy went out the window and dressing went with it.



I do remember an incident in high school though with nail polish.  All four years of high school I sang in the school chorus and also got into the district chorus every year as well.  My freshmen year during some of the downtime at districts one of the senior males from my school was painting his finger nails, out of boredom I suspect.  There were enough colors to go around that a number of the other boys ended up doing the same.  I painted my nails for the first time, doing my left hand in a dark green.

I left it there for a while, something about the colors made it almost seem like somebody else's hand.  I found that I would instinctively hold my hand differently than I was before and it kind of intrigued me.  I wouldn't go so far as to say that it re-opened dressing for me but nail painting was almost a lifeline to dressing during the high school years.  My school had a dress code so I couldn't wear it most of the time.  But every now and then on long weekends or for Halloween I would do my nails.  More often I would do my toe nails, knowing they'd be covered and unseen.

I was just thinking about this because I did my nails for the first time in months this weekend, only to have to take it off for work today.  It was rewarding yet frustrating all at once... so it goes.
