My first time out was when I was four. Vague memories but I had a dress on, heels,fur stole, floppy hat and makeup. My mum dressed me up for a fancy dress competition – which I won! That was the start of a happy childhood of dressing up..

It was crazy…like an out of body experience. i started the day putting on a matching set of Cacique blue satin bra and panties borrowed from my gf at the time. everything was hers except a wig that i bought a few days prior. A pair of thermal sox in each cup and a pair of opaque white tights and i was doing it. I had a wool tweed mini skit from the Gap that had 3 leather buckles on the right hip. I pulled the skirt up above my waist and tried to give the impression of hips. At that time i had no idea about padding or anything like that. The top was a long sleeve cream cotton mock turtleneck sweater with a small cable knit pattern. The shoes were a pair of tan ballet flats.
Again totally out of my head i walked out of the house thinking i was invisible and could not be seen. With no makeup i drove to and walked into a Merle Norman. being an early weekday it was empty. i asked the clerk how to apply makeup to look more like a girl. At first she was taken aback but the matronly clerk at the make up store somehow saw the sincerity of the request from this young college kid. She literally said no she couldn’t but did a full makeover, probably because no one else came in.
i drove to a McDonald’s for lunch, was snickered at and then went to a local lingerie and bra shop that i had been to a couple times as a boy. It was not a sleazy shop but one catering to older women and mastectomy patients. It had a few racks of shape wear for the ladies for formal or special occasions…strapless bras, body briefs, clinchers and slips. like i said it catered to an older clientele. It was there that i was also clocked!
A salesgirl, i think the daughter of the owner, while helping a lady, peered her head over the rack and said “Hey you’re back! I will be with you in a minute.”
Somehow I must have mentioned to her that i was going to dress up. To this day I have details of previous memories of visits there blocked, but i know i had viaited. When she came to talk to me she said i looked great. She said,” when you told me you had a skirt and sweater from the Gap. I thought ew! But this looks really cute on you.” She said i should go to the drag show on Sundays, but i was under 21. She made a sale because she sent me to the dressing room when her boss wasn’t looking. Obviously i must have looked as straight as a board because she gave me a waist cinched to try on. Which i did. She told me her boss did not like when men came in so she took my cash through the curtain and we parted. she was incredibly non-judgmental.
Luckily that did go well because on the way home i stopped at a gas station and dressed back to boy mode. Something must have spooked someone because i got a 1/2 mile down the road before i was stopped by the police. i am sure i came off as sweaty and nervous. who knows how much of the make up i was able to wash off and i had a grocery bag overflowing with women’s tights, clothes and underwear sitting on the floor of the passenger side.
I have dressed up since, probably more and more convincing but have never gone out again. the day started and i was invisible but every stop along the day i was not invisible. If i did chose to venture out again long ago, i am sure that i would be happier for it.

I shudder to think about it. I was fourteen and the only clothes I had were liberated from the Goodwill bag, or purloined in some less honorable way. The shoes were sparkly pair of flats the were too small, the dress was an ugly green shirtwaist that Carol Burnett’s “Char Woman” character would have rejected as ugly. I did have some nice undies on bra, panties and slip. I wore a scarf over my head with my hair (short) pulled over my forehead to simulate bangs. I simple went for a walk in broad daylight. Our neighborhood was a mix of industrial and homes. The shortest circuit was about four blocks square and involve short distances on two main well traveled main roads. I strolled around it trying to look average. I ask you, what kind of fourteen year old girl would have been dressed like that?
Amazingly enough, no one notice, though I didn’t come into direct contact with anyone. Even more amazing was it wasn’t my last time out in that outfit. Emboldened by that experience I went out several more time, increasing my travels, still never coming in direct contact with anyone, only cars driving by.
Only once did I come into contact with anyone. It was when I went to a closed service station to use the restroom and discovered a couple of younger neighborhood girl sitting on the counter talking. They of course read me and one of them recognized me. I lived in fear of repercussion for a long time after that but none ever came.

Well I have to travel in the memory banks for this one. I think it was a brown skirt, with matching top, I believe it was a pair of Candies heels, no wig or makeup. Know that I walked down the street to the local park and back.

I went to a Halloween party about 15 years ago which was a perfect test run especially since there were a few lesbian and gay couples as well. I wore black pantyhose, a short black dress with a deep neck line. 3 inch heels black strap. I was more concerned about the makeup job. Thankfully I had plenty of secret practice and had a dark purple and grey eye shadow with deep Crimson lipstick and a professionally fitted wig (auburn).
I was never comfortable the entire night but it was a Halloween costume party so no long term stigmas. In hindsight I do recall a few comments that I was passable which I didn’t believe at the time, but I have since ventured out and although I’m 15 years older and my skin isn’t quite as smooth I do think I look ok.
Remember it’s better to regret things you’ve done that regret those things you haven’t.

HI Heather, First let me say that you look pretty darn good to me so you are better than ok.
I do not recall exactly what I wore my first time out walking at night. My favorite outfit was a tight pair of white shorts, I forget the color blouse, bra padded with my softest socks rolled up, and a kerchief to disguise the fact that my hair wasn’t girly.
My first time out as a woman I was a blonde, in a skirt and top – no I don’t remember the colors, but I had full makeup, silicon breast forms, false lashes and my wig was from Paula Young, although my earlier wigs had been from walmart halloween selections. I also had rings, necklace, earrings and other jewelry. It was a great experience even though I was the only one in the bar for nearly 2 hours.
