I’m sure many of you can relate to this story. In my profile bio, I mention the time that I first saw Angela in the mirror, fully realized. It was February 18, 2023, and this photo is from that day. Prior to that date, I never had been totally satisfied with Angela’s look. I was still learning makeup and other techniques. Some days I looked OK, others less than OK. There was even a session where I looked so bad I deleted every photo in disgust. Little did I know this day would be different. The first dress I put on that day was my little black dress. I had just bought it and was eager to see how I looked in it. So I did my makeup, put on the dress, and was all set except for my wig. When I put on the wig and brushed the hair from my eyes, there was Angela looking back at me in the mirror. For the first time, the real Angela. And I was stunned. Literally. Stunned. Two thoughts went through my mind. “Damn, I look good” followed by “ How did this happen? What did I just do? I have to remember because I need to do the exact same thing from now on”. Later that day something else clicked in my head. Angela was real, and I realized that I couldn’t do this alone anymore. I felt the need to reach out, to share my new experiences with a larger community. So I went searching online to see what was out there. I had never been on social media before, in any capacity. So I was wary. Some crossdressing websites were pretty creepy. I remember reading one, and twenty seconds in I came across the word “horny” and said “Nope, this isn’t for me”. I questioned whether this was even a good idea. I was willing to forget the whole thing if I couldn’t find what was right for me. But I kept looking, and eventually I found exactly what I was searching for. Four days after I met Angela, I joined Crossdresser Heaven.

Even as a boy, I thought girl’s clothing was more interesting than boy’s clothing. I dabbled with crossdressing in my early 20’s trying on my sisters’ clothes — but didn’t take it very far because very little fit me. Eventually my attention turned to my career — getting my degree and teaching at a university. So my crossdressing laid dormant for decades. But the itch never totally went away. When I retired, I realized that the time was right to try my hand at crossdressing again. Except this time I got serious. The internet provided me with women’s apparel that actually fit me — and delivered it to my front door. YouTube taught me how to apply makeup and other tricks to feminize my appearance. And I had the time and freedom to experiment. The result is that I was able to create Angela, a woman whose beauty and femininity exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m sorry if that sounds vain, but I’ll never forget the first time I saw her in the mirror, fully realized, staring back at me. What a rush! If only my 20-something self could see me now! I joined Crossdresser Heaven about three months after I got back into crossdressing, and it changed my life. The support and love I feel from this community has given me the confidence and courage to take my crossdressing to the next level. I now go out in public as Angela — something that I honestly thought I would never do when I began my crossdressing journey. So what’s next? Going shopping with my CDH friends, a professional makeover, and a convention or two. Stay tuned.

    Yes, I can relate too… still remember the first time I wore a proper wig… had done clothes and makeup many times before, but that day, everything in place… it was special!
    Glad you have the exact memory about your moment!

    My experience was similar Angela. On the day my first wig was delivered, I first put on a nice dress, some lipstick and finally the wig. I looked in the mirror, saw the pretty lady looking back, uttered a soft “oh my” and sat and looked at myself for a long while. It was then that I decided to show Fiona to the world and she was out the door en femme a few days later. It was a moment I will never forget.

    What a touching story. Thank you for sharing. Well, I can understand why this photo was a tipping point for you. You look amazing! I’m glad you found CDH. To this day, I’ll have a good makeup session and be like, “how am I going to remember what I did and how to do it again!”. In fact, I had one of those today!
