      What surprised me was how relaxed I was. Sure I was nervous. Granted there weren’t a lot of people around. But I walked across a park to a concession stand and bought a bottle of water as if I didn’t care what anybody thought about my wedges and skin tight leggings.

      Also, surprised how much I enjoy wearing wedges and leggings.

      Plus, after a photo shoot, I was surprised at how much I resemble my sister.

      Xoxo, Dani

      The first time I really went out, the thing that surprised me was how calm and relaxed and “right” it felt. I think all of us can relate to the feelings of nervousness or uncertainty and guilt, but I was amazed how all that melted away when I went out without the idea of hiding.

      What surprised me was how I looked like a less attractive version of my sister. It kind of creeped me out a little so i am less inclined to look in a mirror when I dress fully. It is not that i look like her that is uneasy but how I do not look like how I see myself in my minds eye. I need to get over that.

      Second, is how much calm comes over me. Not focusing on how/if I pass (see above) has allowed me to dress the way I like (very sophisticated) and work from home in complete calm. As the day goes on I completely forget how I am dressed and that what I am wearing is “different”. This reaffirms for me that dressing is completely a societal construct and not biological. Surprise

        Jamie, your comment about looking like your sister reminded me of something similar which happened to me.

        I never had any sisters, but after my first professional makeover, and when she showed me the result, I was struck by how much I looked like my mother. Couldn’t believe it actually! Then a while back I was visiting a CD friend and she lent me a different wig and dress. The dress was in a style often favoured by my Mom, and the wig as well, and when I showed the picture to my wife, she was floored by how much I looked like my late Mom.

      Not quite the answer, but the surprise for me is, and it continues to be the exploration of all things feminine. Like shoes, of course, but also all of the endless accessories, the endless styles and colour combinations of clothes. Plus that elusive quality which makes one feminine, and not just a guy in a dress.

      The first time I really got my makeup just right, completing it while my wife was out and her coming home to see me full out Bridgette and she said “You look beautiful, we have to go out. ” I almost cried right there. It was a wonderful day.

      I had dressed in my sisters dresses from when I was very young. The first time I was fully dressed when I was about seven. I was dressed as a fairy for a school play. My mother made the dress and I was fully dressed with a dab of makeup. I was surprised at how much of a girl I looked and how everyone saw me as such. It was no surprise that I saw how I wanted to be.

      My first full en femme experience was also the time of my first makeover. The surprise? How natural and “right” it felt to be a girl.

      Even though I have been dressing off and on for decades, I only recently tried heels.  I never understood shoe fascination… until now! LOL  I’m totally hooked and it has genuinely surprised me in a good way. 🙂

      What I found surprising was nothing.

      Actually I was just plain delighted – there I am a woman – it’s the same feeling I get every time I crossdress and look in the mirror to check I have got my outfit etc right.

      Great topic Saoirse! For me it was how gorgeous I looked the first time I got dolled up in beautiful/romantic lingerie in front of the mirror. I definitely turned myself on and I just couldn’t look away from that mirror and the woman who was looking back at me. I looked and felt like a woman about to come to bed on her wedding night. A very romantic and sensual feeling came over me that I can’t describe!

      The first time I got really serious about my cosmetics was only in the last few years. Even though I had been dressing since I as 11, I had not been serious about my make-up beyond some mascara and lipstick. There was always something about the lipstick that made me feel transformed.

      By the time I started to really make an effort, I was on the other side of 50. I carefully made myself up and looked in the mirror… I was shocked, surprised and horrified…

      I LOOKED JUST LIKE MY MOTHER!!!!!

      I literally could have been her… at the age of 75!!!! I hated it!!!!! It almost made me start another grand purge.

      Then I made a last ditch effort and bought my first mask.

      That saved everything. It erased “me” and allowed Brianna to bubble, easily and unimpeded to the surface. So, what surprised me the most? The day I took my time, prepared carefully, made the transformation into a ritual, did my eyes up right, styled my favorite wig and put on my “face”.

      I was shocked!!!! I was actually PRETTY!!!!!! I never knew I could achieve that.

      Pretty… such a simple word and yet one with so much meaning for us gurls… especially those of us who are ladies of a “certain age”. I think being pretty allows me to have the experience of being in my 20’s. That is Bri’s age… She is about 22 or so. I am a pretty crusty old guy when I am “B”. When I am Brianna? She is so different. Being “pretty” (at least in my own eyes) has made all the difference.

        I can relate to your comment about looking like your mother! My very first time (only a few months ago!) with a cheapo Amazon wig and my first “real” attempt with makeup and lipstick I thought… “HOLY CRAP… I LOOK LIKE MY GRANDMOTHER!!!!” LMAO! Since then, I’ve gotten way better at my makeup and my newest wig definitely helps me look as I want. I actually am beginning to feel cute and pretty … and a LOT younger for some strange reason.

          I totally feel you on this, Dani. It was an unpleasant surprise to see my mother staring back at me. IO think that I was caught by surprise at how fast aging set in… and I was sooooo not happy.

      Eye shadow. The first time I saw myself in makeup, and the first time I was only wearing eye shadow and lip gloss, I was taken aback. Because it was still me, but it was me expressing my Kate side. And it felt really good.

      With out a question, the day I had a full Professional Transformation.

      A magical day that I will never forget, absolutely worth every dollar and more, a life changing moment.

      On this day I learned the power of proper makeup, clothes and hair. No time to elaborate today but it opened a huge door for Sandy. Went from ugly duckling to someone with a goal and confidence.  From inside to out in public and an entire new world to explore.

      I was totally stunned and shocked that the sexy girl with the long gorgeous legs looking back at me in the mirror was actually me. It was something I dreamed and fantasized about for so long. Now it was coming true.

      Mine, was twofold, How much I do look like a woman, and how much my wife loves and supports her girlfriend/sister.
      Oh, and I too look so very much like my younger sister.

      What surprised me was seeing a woman looking back at me in the mirror. Always felt it and wondered what i might have looked like. I just seemed like a dream, seeing the real me.

      My first time out completely en femme surprised me by how pleasant my venture made me feel, and by my confidence that I could do this again. I was surprised that a longer skirt felt authentic and therefore felt better than I think a short skirt would.

      I already knew the joy of shaved legs and stockings but silicone boobs (as opposed to stuffing my bra with panties) and a wig were the ones where I went ‘oh, there she is’. Shoes are great though, they were the last thing I acquired and they were very much needed.
