Apart from enjoying being occasionally dressed I also have a few other hobbies some a bit geeky.  I'm not a master of any of them but I do enjoy having them to occupy my time.  Some I can and have been able to do enfem.

I'm interested it what others do to occupy your free time.  I have based the poll on some of my hobbies and added some for context.  I know there are a lot more and keep thinking of others but don't want to create a huge list.

I just looked to see I could edit the list to add "Other" (as requested) unfortunatly I can't see a way, sorry.

Well I'm trans.  If anything, it's given me more opportunities to pursue my hobbies.  I chose 3 - computers, photography, and great outdoors.

Computers are a hobby and a career.  I work in IT.  In a way I'm getting paid for a hobby.  I'm not much into building them anymore.  I've more interested in AI, cybersec, and web dev.

Photography is one of my oldest hobbies.  That's also been a paying gig at various times.  Most of the photos I take are landscape and travel images.  I've posted a few in the members photo area.  I have an inventory of high-end gear that I drag out for serious sessions.  TBH, the camera on my Pixel Pro is so good, it gets used way more than my Sony gear.

I've hiked the backcountry since I was a teen.  Day hikes.  Overnight bivvies.  Multi-day trips.  In the past I did some climbing and mountaineering.  I'm in the process of buying female outdoor wear to replace my guy stuff.

It didn't make it onto the poll but I'd also choose music.  I'm an avid music lover.  Constantly discovering new music.  Attending shows whenever I can.

The best thing is being able to do all these things whenever I want!

@elaines my “ other “ hobby is for all of you I’m sure, a real boar.  I am a lifelong student of military history.  I collect and read hardcover books and add to my library.  I study all eras and continents, but my area of college study was the frontier wars of the Native Americans. As an extension, have great interest if firearms of all eras. Growing up a wild child on the streets,( drag Racer) am looking to have a little muscle in the garage.

Military history is my thing, too!  I guess I concentrate on WW2 but I'll read any period after 1900.  I'm not into memorizing data (although it has happened- I liken my brain to a vast warehouse of seemingly useless info) but rather try to understand why things happened the way they did. That's where studying history is relevant, IMO.  Best wishes!   Lauren

@elaines My hobby is model railroading, mainly N-scale but have some G-scale too. I’m currently designing a 13-ft x 11-ft N-scale layout and have enjoyed being dressed while I design it in the computer.

@elaines I was into car restoration and collecting once apron a time. Then I retired and sold my collection as they were just a money pit to maintain. Now I play the stock market for fun. So far, so good.

Elaine, I like this question, because we are all more than ‘just’ crossdressers.  We are people with lots of different loves, interests, concerns, fears and so on.  But having said that, I do enjoy my hobbies more when dressed!

My day job involves science, so I tend to steer away from that in my spare time. Writing and book illustration are a bit more than hobbies as I make money from both and will be pursuing them full time when I take early retirement in July ... so I can't include those 🙂

What I'm left with is natural history, sketching and painting, playing the guitar, gardening, walking, writing poetry, collecting books, reading, learning languages and mixing cocktails 🙂

I dislike the word 'retirement'.  I'm nowhere near 'retiring'.  I want to work less and still get paid a good salary....and have fun doing it!

A wise old friend told me don't retire from something.  Retire to something.  Looks like you have that figured out Ellie.

BTW - getting paid for a hobby doesn't diminish the fact that it's still a hobby.  It still counts in my book.

@ellyd22 Hey Ellie, this is going to sound creepy, but it’s not intended that way.  I am a research chemist , trained to teach, but loved research too much.  I am an unapologetic bibliophile (3000+ books line my office) and I draw (albeit not so well) in my spare time.  I speak English and Greek, some French and Dutch.  We seem to be so alike….however, as I hate gardening, and have the musical ear of Van Gogh, and as for mixing cocktails….i prefer to simpler drinks like a nice glass of Chablis, so maybe we should call the whole thing off..

Hugs

Initially I read that as 'I speak English and Geek'  - and I thought 'Yes, we really ARE alike!' 🙂

And I'm not averse to Chablis, if you're offering.

@elaines I'm a big movie fan, love action/sci fi. I play ice hockey at least once a week.

I have a pair of motorcycles that I enjoy tinkering on between days that I can ride them.(both cruisers, one Honda/one Harley.

I spend a lot of time trying to be a good dog parent, making sure she's getting exercise helps to get me off the couch. 

I like to get into the gym to lift, but I have been bad lately about keeping the schedule that I used to keep. working on that...

I enjoy watching live bands/dancing getting out to bars/clubs.

I enjoy shooting a game of pool now and then.

I do enjoy a bit of cooking as well...

There you go...

Hope you're having fun out there.

XOXO

Rayna

@elaines A great question - the only problem I can see is that the categories (inevitably!) can't be wide enough!  I love sport; my greatest love is (though I am now too old to do it myself) motorcycle racing - and you ladies out there should look at the history of Michelle (formerly Michael) Duff, who came very, very close to winning a world title.  Also, please check out both Maria Herrera and (the first ever female World Champion!) Ana Carrasco.  It's great to see that Women's Football (no, not that farce that they besmirch the good name of on the western side of the Atlantic) and Cricket (has there ever been - or could there ever be - a greater sport?) are now being treated seriously by the media.  Why did this not happen twenty years (OR MORE!) ago?  Holly XXX

Hey Holly, I've played loads of sport all my life. Football, rugby union, cricket and golf. I'm horribly competitive. Cricket is my great love and I really enjoy watching the women play. Also rugby union. Just got the six nations underway here in the UK. England were rubbish in the first half but got it together in the second. Love the ladies cricket too. Not so bothered about soccer, although we did win the European championship, and reached the final of the world cup. After which all the headlines were grabbed by the famous Spanish kiss. What are everyone's views on that? I feel it was inappropriate but just an honest expression of joy and the media made too much of it xx.

@chrisfp99 Finally got round to replying:  I can only apolgise for the delay.  Can't stand Rugby Union - though League is brilliant... how screwed up am I?...  Football (the REAL football!) is the big one though; and the Spanish Kiss (as you so beautifully put it)...  Well, the first thing is that No lady should ever be forced to do anything that she doesn't want to:  I'm sure we are all agreed on that.  In this case - well, a kiss isn't the worst thing in the world... but I get the idea from the (slighty vague) press coverage that he knew in advance that this was NOT a welcome advance.  If so - he deserves all the punishment coming to him (and more.)  If not - well, we can only wait for the outcome of all the cases being put forward and see what comes of it all.  Possibly/probably not much beyond an expression of joy at the result of the match... just not too sure that was what it was...  Time will tell......  Holly XXX

@elaines I'm a carpenter. I started working wood when I was very young, and have since built my own house using my joinery skills. I'm into cooking, now very much going into all the formal chef techniques and worldly dishes. I love science. I don't have a particular field, as I'm not educated enough, but I follow it broadly, mostly in Skepticism, in the proper use of that nomenclature. I was an infantry soldier, and have kept up my practice in that unsavory field of expertise and have taught many women, queer folk, and people of color the craft and safety in a less than accepting time. I also love playing pool, billiards.

I do end up putting on my boy clothes for most everything I do. Cooking, I do often wear cute clothes, and a pretty apron. In my shop, the closest I've been is what's called a utilikilt, basically a heavy cloth kilt with pockets, a skirt if you don't mind wearing skirts, a kilt if that hurts your man bits too badly. I have thought of, deeply, how to defend oneself while being dressed. Girly clothes don't afford one any advantages in staving off an aggressor, nor running away. So I think about that a fair bit. 

I'm also building a pool table. When I'm done, I think I will shoot pool in my loveliest dresses, That sounds so fun.

I chose photography, outdoors and sports. When I’m outdoors I’m taking pictures, hiking, fishing, etc. During the warmer months I’m always in leggings, sports bra and t-shirt. My leggings and bra always match, my t-shirt not so much. I don’t really what people think! I live my life according to me!!

@elaines I started drumming, mostly rock and blues, a few years ago.  Recently I started thinking how much of a rush it would be to perform live while dressed.  In my mind, I would be a red headed school girl just crushing Led Zeppelin.

I used to build models, mostly military armour or cars.  I had to stop due to costs.  One of my favourite model brand is tamiya, and if anyone builds models will know tamiya comes from japan.

We went to japan late last year, and tamiya is way cheaper over there.  So I bought a few boxes of models, 2 tank, a bus, ww2 jeep.   Just hoping for some free time to build them.

I also build pcs, but only when we need to upgrade.   not sure if that is considered a hobby tho as I don't build pcs on a constant basis.

@wendyswift   I don't think I ever built any Tamiya, I was planes and trains (Airfix and Revell).  I don't blame you bringing a load home.  PC building is fun too, early days I built a few as I managed to get some motherboards from work, dont ask how !

I work on various electronic projects, also computers.

Additionally, I like to keep my truck somewhat customized, nothing special, just with enough stuff to make it comfy for me.  I have a decal in the rear window that reads:

"Silly Boys, Trucks Are For Girls"

I own two of the same modern classic car and I'm a forum admin on a club website for them.  One is my second daily driver, the other is a garage queen for shows and club socials.  I've done some customisation of their interiors etc. but my eyesight isn't brilliant, so their mechanics and electronics I leave to those with brighter eyes and nimbler fingers.  I just drive and wash them!  I can't see any reason that Fiona couldn't do either of those things ... but I'm not ready to show this side of me to the club yet!  The OH and I also own a campervan, so between that and the car club that's most weekends taken care of between clocks forward and clocks back 🙂

@caligirl Oh lovely, a *proper* British sports car, warts and all - lucky you 🙂  Is the 5-speed box an original or a later fitment?  I used to do all my own mechanicals when I drove cars of a similar vintage - if you didn't keep on top of things, you wouldn't always get where you wanted to go!

@caligirl Ah, thanks!  I was wondering what box you had on board, as I'm sure five-speeds didn't start to arrive in many cars until the end of that decade.  A lot of those old motors could do with one though.  I'm familiar with 'boxes from the same OEM 'family' range being swapped in from my own modern classic, but melding two makes as disparate as Triumph and Toyota wouldn't have occurred to me.  Kudos to whoever worked out it could be done and designed the conversion kit that would be necessary!

And exactly what species of car IS this 'Garage Queen' of yours?

I'd actually love a VW camper van, or one of the old Dormobiles. Perfect for those long journeys; you can just pull over, touch up your makeup, put on a whole new outfit and drive on 🙂

I'm not criticizing hun, merely expanding on the list in my case as part of the conversation. I've done polls myself and often thought afterwards what I could have put in or taken out and like you, I couldn't find a way of editing the choices.

When at home, it's the model thing with the railroad - and always fully dressed.

Outside the house, it's auto racing - which is really fun when underdressed. 😉

I have yet to figure out how to work the clutch when wearing heels. LOL

Potholing  'the outdoor pursuit of climbing, squeezing and digging through small spaces in order to reach the insides of caves or other areas normally off limits'.

Potholing is often also considered to be the vertical descent into a cave from a great height.

In short, my worst nightmare.

What's worse is the people who squeeze through tiny underground spaces (that they could easily get stuck in) and THEN PUT ON SCUBA GEAR and swim through flooded underground passages without knowing whether there will be a way out.

No thanks.

The riskiest I want to get is gardening in a sun dress.

@ellyd22 We were offered some potholing experiance when at school as a part of an outward bound project for inner city schools.  NO WAY was I going down an underground hole.  So I went fell walking instead, favorite walk was Mallam Cove via Goredale Scar.  Not done it for years now.

I don't mind being underground. My background is in geology and geochemistry and I've been down lots of mines. I even walked through part of the Channel Tunnel while it was still being excavated.

No ... it's the wriggling-through-confined-spaces-with-your-arms-trapped-against-your-sides-and-four-hundred-feet-of-rock-pressing-down-on-you-and-the-definite-possibility-of-death bit that I dislike.

Dark.

Wet.

Cold.

Confined spaces.

Heights.

 

Or ... sit in the shade on a sunny day with a glass of wine and a good book while the grass tickles your toes.

It's a difficult choice 🙂

Weather is cold 6-7 months out of the year where I live so I play a lot of video games and work on remote control cars and boats inside.  Going to try drones someday.  I want to be able to edit the video footage that I can take with them but have no clue how to make videos clips out of raw video footage.

Also looking to build another desktop gaming PC in the next month or so.  Have not built a PC in 15 years...

My son, who often works as a video editor in TV, tells me that Lightworks is one of the easiest for dummies (like me) to be able to edit videos. I've tried it and I succeeded up to a point but I am more into photography than video so didn't go very far with it. It's free for the most part and although it expires, it just asks you to renew your free bit -- the renewal is more of a prompt to remind you that you could get the full version for a price.

Hi girls. I checked sports. When I was younger I played a lot of football (soccer) and rugby union (a bit like American football but much less tediously slow, and we're tough, so don't need all that protection 😂). Then spent decades playing my great love, cricket (it's an English thing). Ran out of energy a few years ago, but now happily retired, and trying to get my golf game back on track.

The big omission in the list is music. Have played in bands all my life. Just left a blues band as I felt it wasn't really going anywhere, but I'm still playing keys with three other bands. This has come up before. There are loads of musical girls here. I'm sure we could put together an all girl band.

I also love to cook. Now I'm retired I do all the family cooking. I always say, rather cruelly, of my wife that she has no interest in cooking and I have no interest in eating anything she cooks, bless her.

I have to sadly add that none of these activities have been done en femme, except cooking on those rare occasions that my wife is away. 

Hugs, Chrissie xx.

@elaines Hi, Elaine. Yes, I've cooked en femme too, couple of times I've made us some supper mid -evening. Last night was just a sandwich and a cup, I remarked to my wife how strange it feels yet I only had on 3" heels.

Thanks for an interesting post, limitations or not.

Collecting, cellaring and drinking good AUSTRALIAN wine. Yes there are millions of good bottles from other parts of the world, but I travelled enough in my work days to know that our vino is as good as anywhere else.

NB And I aint talking about Yellowtail...

Broken down old rock guitarist, own three very good guitars and a vintage... valve amp. (Suprise surprise, two of the guitars are Matons, made right here in Melbourne. So was the amp, (back in the 60's)

Was a keen recreational fisherman  for close to 40 years, but "swallowed the anchor" five years ago when I had to move back to the "big smoke"

Writing... Have always enjoyed it and have been "published" many times. (Mostly in local papers on local topics) but I do have 13 articles here on CDH.!!

Happy dressing

 

Caty.

 

PS Yes I have cooked en femme. But the last time that happened, "she came home early" and I got caught by my DADT SO.Dont think I'll do that again.

I would think it's a bit risky en femme, one wouldn't like to see a stray boob get caught in the string and go flying down the range! 🙂

Sorry for the late answer. Stray boob wold never get caught in the string, first of all when having boobs you would like to wear a breastplate and second a stray boob will always fall down and away from the string and third I'm an instinctive archer and its seldom the string is near my body.

It was just a joke really, otherwise actual women would never take part in the sport. 😉

@rebeccabaxter. Oh I know it was a joke. Was just telling why it was never gonna happen, but in irl the nipple or the breast can get badly hurt if shooting without a breast protector.

@clarissa2 The thought of that makes me cringe.

I'm not quite broken down (yet), but I rather missed the 'music making' category. I play guitar and bass, keyboards/ synths, flute, mandolin, bouzouki and dabble on the sitar, sax and Theremin. I record music and play in a band (we had a gig last night actually). 

I've always like the look of old Maton electrics - they used to pop up on ebay over here years ago but at a time when I was in no position to buy, unfortunately.

My other main hobby is modelling - 1/35 military, rather than catwalk, sadly 😼 I completely sympathise with you @wendyswift - the cost of models is mad these days; Tamiya is bad enough bit when you start looking at AFV Club or Dragon, the prices over here can be eye-watering - and that's before you start factoring in extras such as figures, detailing kits, diorama and other accessories.
