With the weather improving, the urge to get out dressed has been overwhelming. I still worry about the Rona but I am an avid mask wearer and finally got out again.
I went to a local drag show. Normally, I would head over to Kansas City where people are a little more open minded in general. But considering that it was a drag show, I felt like it was a safe environment to be Mika.
I have a new blonde wig which you all have probably noticed. I have been itching to try it out because it’s much more natural looking than my more expensive name brand wig (I may post more about that later). When my wife told me about the upcoming show, I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. I knew my makeup takes me almost two hours and I knew I would have several nicks from my razor after shaving so I planned accordingly.
On my first time out, I forgot a coat and it was near freezing. I did remember all of my planned outfit and accessories but I forgot a wig cap in the excitement. It didn’t seem to make any difference and all went well.
I thought I heard one person comment that they didn’t know if I was a woman or a man at first. It didn’t bother me at all. I realized that, being at a drag show, people in the crowd probably expected to see people like myself in attendance. So, being clocked was kinda good because it helps to show that we are here. I felt like it was a safe enough environment to be clocked in. I even chatted with a GG when I needed a light for my cigarette because that was the one other thing I left at home. I didn’t hide the fact that I was trans but she had probably already figured that out herself.
There were, at least, two others in the crowd like me. Hopefully, they won’t wait too long to have another drag show. I should be in a qualifying vaccine tier by then and I won’t have to overly stress about my mask next time. As such, I would be more inclined to socialize and try to find out more about a possible local trans/crossdresser scene.
I do have a couple pictures. One is just a plain ol’ selfie. But the other is me with the drag queens after the show. They are both posted in my Public Photos. You can see the outfit I picked out there.
Whatever you do, have fun!
