This is what I'm into today. Not a thing, just chillin on a chilly day.

I used to have real long hair, cut it all off, now I'm 1 year and 6 months after my last cut.

I've also had 100 hours of electrolysis, been about 13 years sense my last session.

Audrey, you are wearing my favorite feminine style, "business" style.  And girl, you are rocking that outfit!  I also agree that you are wearing a million dollar smile.  Isn't it wonderful when the look you trying to achieve comes together perfectly?

Lizzy,

 

I adore the boots you are wearing in your last picture post.  I have a pair from Torrid that look similar and I love them.

I think I might be settling into a style I like. Now if could only find this top in black.

 

Oh, that would look nice! You need a little contrast though. Have you considered off-black?

 

Hugs!

Audrey, I love the outfit. David Tate's are one of my favorite fast fashion shoe brands, and they make larger sizes!

 

Finally got unpacked from the move. Today was casual with embroidered levi's, simple t-shirt and a cardigan. Hair by 30 MPH gusty winds. lol. I didn't bother with my hair today since I'm going in for a hair appointment later. First one in about a year! Just going to get it cleaned up a bit. Plan is to let it grow another 5-6" I think.

Had to do some Holliday shopping.   Around here, that pretty much means a trip to WallWorld.  

On the plus side, I was correctly gendered.  That felt good.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful compliments! @Sally Stone The feminine business style is my favorite too and I love how the suit flatters me so well even if it is polyester and only $69. I felt absolutely amazing all day in my outfit - I might even call it gender euphoria, meeting people who treated me like I have always been a woman. I am so happy to read you had an experience like that today as well @Jandi !

 

@Bri2020 It is lovely to see you again! I love the warm color of the cardigan and I am excited to see your hair after your appointment!

 

@Amber76 Your lipstick color makes your smile radiant!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I should have taken a pic right afterwards but here's the new cut. She just put some layers in and took an inch off the tips. Framed my "bangs" a little.  She loved the way the curls defined, especially in the back and asked permission to post pics to the salon instagram. When they post them I will share the link, I'm sure they're better than my dark room at bedtime pic. lol

@Bri2020 I just love the curls Bri! They turned out just lovely and how flattering that the salon asked if they could share on social media!

 

Love,

This top is one of the projects I've been working on for the last couple of weeks. It's more of a test piece for a 3d printed chainmail I designed.

Does the 3d printer print it out already linked up or just the individual links that you snap together? It looks amazing!

@Elizabeth Star How heavy is that? It looks like it would hurt your shoulders!

❤️Thanks. It prints sections with the rings already connected then I just connect the sections together. The star inlay is a separate piece that I had to "cut-in". It took a little over 250 hours to print and connect all the sections. It would have been faster for me to make it out of steel and copper but with the printer it was hands-off. I was able to set it, forget it and do something else while the machine did it's thing, it's also super light compared to steel and a lot easier of my hands.

3d printed plastic is pretty light. My medium of choice was always aluminum which isn't bad either. Now if she'd gone traditional and made it out of riveted steel... that sucker would be heavy. It also would have taken just FOREVER to do. It's less weight on the shoulders than you'd think though, the weight is pretty distributed.

 

Hugs!

I actually used to fight in maille. A full shirt and hood. I made it out of 14 ga steel. And yes that sucker was HEAVY. 
 

@Elizabeth Star Yours definitely looks prettier and a lot lighter than my old set lol

@Elizabeth StarThis is a good question, and by the time I quoted the question you answered it down further on the thread. The number of hours are amazing.

      Welcome @Beverley, Sorry for such a late reply. This thread was one that I missed but well worth the read. It’s a genuine pleasure to meet you.   This is the most astonishing (and fastest) of turnarounds I’ve read about here on our forum. Feel free to disregard any or all of my questions but I am curious about her incredible change of heart. Was there anything specific you know of that changed her mind? Had you provided her prior to this change…an article, statistics, a podcast, a movie, etc…? What led up to this presenting female to your spouse right before the change of heart?   Regardless of the answers, your wife sounds like an amazing person and has in time become a true ally for you becoming your true self. I wish you the very best on your continuing journey and look forward to reading about some of the highlights as they occur.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Hi Aggie,   Absolutely.   I sent some pics to my sis.   I've been on hormones for two months almost and she was curious. She mentioned I look shaplier (Is this even a word)🤔   I mean the only thing that is outing me at the moment is the obvious male voice I employ   I don't think I look out of place with the girls if I kept my mouth shut...but I can't.🤭   So next step is to attempt to work on the voice again.   I'm fairly neutral in mannerisms, feminine in looks but masculine in voice.   Luckily for this show I found an entire women's bathroom on an upper level that was empty so I had it all to myself.🤫   ...otherwise I was worried about ruffling feathers in both camps as most of us are familiar with...😬   Just trying to be oneself and not affect others is such a hard thing.   I think the extra tipping point going full dress just helped them to decide how to take me in.   As the street artist said, being honest with how you see yourself and comfortable with your dress/expression is everything.😌

      I've been feeling bad about @LindaMarie. Maybe it's my imagination, but for awhile lately I've been getting the impression she's been privately dealing with some difficult things, not quite sure what.
    • Heather Nicole
      @LindaMarie:   "Runnin' with the devil" is a genuine classic (definitely a Van Halen fan here)!   The Amy Winehouse song (Rehab) is a phenomenal one too, that I suspect many trans people can relate to at least on some level, even if not always necessarily as a literal connection to the lyrics (or...sometimes, more literal). My first introduction to that song (and to any of Amy Winehouse's music for that matter) was from Rock Band...uhmmm...I want to say Rock Band 3? To this day, "Rehab" is still one of my absolute favorite songs to do vocals on in Rock Band. I like to think I'm not too terrible at it!
    • Susan R
      Ditto on this @Lydia_R… But better late than never. 😉 Glad you found us and decided to join us.   I really like your GT and her sage advice. She sounds like a “I’ll seize the day!” kind of therapist instead of “I’ll seize the day….well, maybe tomorrow” type. And you seem to have that same kind of motivation too. With transition, it can be so helpful because there are so many factors that can slow you down, or God forbid, get you completely off track.   Thank you for sharing a little of your backstory with us. I hope to see you around and learn more about you in time.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      My heart went thump thump when I read this! Loved it! One "small" step for Swallow, one giant leap for me!!!! Maybe one day, soon! For new I'm happy "being me" in groups out in public or on zoom. I'm a known entity to hundreds of folks in these groups, and I'm gradually metamorphosing, so I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone when my attire gradually changes to fit the contours of my body and my mannerisms. Kind of like an adolescent, coming of age, I guess.

      Many thanks...   Well...the art people were one thing but the production work crew and builders were another thing altogether.   I was a little nervous with them at first. Groups of men huddling around male chatter rather than working.🤨   And i think they were also understandably somewhat nervous with me.   But I think I carried on and issued efficient dissemination of orders and they took to me at least in terms of work efficiency.   The gender question became somewhat irrelevant as we managed to get the job done together regardless.🙂   As they saw instructions from me led to things getting done, I think all other questions with regard my gender were less of an issue.   At wrap of show one of them (A sweet gentleman from Belize) was dismantling an entire wall of beer can 12 feet high by himself...I offered to help him by getting on the ladder to pass down the cans higher up and speed up his process but he declined.   In some sense, they would not let me do the heavy lifting (Sexist)🤭   But also maybe he was afraid I would give him an unwanted upskirt since I was in my frock.😅

      As another California Girl, our arts community is really a cool group of people as far as gender and acceptance things go, and they have eyes for appreciating us.  There are many Trans and Enby artists as well who put their stuff out for people to see and the artists to be seen themselves.  Sounds like you fit in with the group, and the ones I know in person are all so sweet and encouraging that you simply feel at home and completely natural.  Best of luck.
    • Susan R
      Congrats @swallow, It just goes to show you that as you become more comfortable with yourself, others around you follow suit.   I have a feeling that this is just the beginning of many more wonderful and exciting things to come. The art sector is a very affirming bunch overall. I am so happy for you and this confidence building experience you had. Thank you for sharing this uplifting update with us and may you have many more like it!   All My Best, Susan R🌷
    • VickySGV
      OK, so in California we have our own language, but I use the two terms quite often with no offense to the people I know, and they would tell me.  I would not like to hear it from a person using it to talk down to me but that is the exception and not the rule thankfully.  Be sure your use is to lift the  person up and not belittle them or talk down to them.

      Welcome @LV1Rose, It’s nice to meet you. As others have suggested, many of us here are elderly sapphic transgender individuals. As I approach 60, I would be included in that group by most…except for my bisexual leanings more than purely sapphic.   This is a wonderful place for doing just that. We’ve all have trials and tribulations and this forum really does seem to help me when the ‘you know what’ hits the fan. Hope to see you around!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      That's kind of new to me too, the idea of "hun/honey" being a derogatory thing (I date back to the 1980's, FWIW, so I guess that makes me relatively old).   To me personally, it sounds like the kind of thing that's not so much about "what" someone says, and more about "how" they say it. I mean, I can certainly imagine "hun/honey" being used in a derogatory way, but I've never known it to be inherently derogatory. But that's just me. Maybe it could a regional thing?

      Hi Everyone,   Don't really know where to post this...🤔   I've been so busy the last 3 weeks helping with an Art Fair in LA.😓   Its been ups and downs at the job but I was very happy my boss gave me the opportunity since aside from film production, I have zero experience in the Art world.🤫   In between, I've almost lost lots of money for her and almost compromised her because I Copied everyone instead of Blind copied.😣   But I managed to salvage the situations ...what I'd deem as taking a -crap- and coming out smelling like roses.🤭   During the Art show I found I was rather more in my element.😌   I was of course still employing a male voice and had soon established an effective control on the floor crew, started to whip things into action albeit still in a gentle non Alpha male feminine lead by example, organize and encourage manner.😊   But the girls in the office and everyone still gendered me as male and called me He or Sir.   Partly this was because I had told my boss that she should use whatever was more natural in terms of pronouns for both her and everyone-else and not make much issue of it.   Of course it still bothered me deep down.😔   Anyway come show days I got a bit more bold with my dress sense.   I had feminine clothing on the entire pre-production but I shed inhibition and started first to wear a frilly see through black blouse and waist high paperbag Khaki trouser on the first day. I elected for trousers since we went full day and into the night and I needed full mobility across the show floor.   But as the show days progress, I was assign partially to a more sedentary paced Door Bitch duty at the VIP lounge for some periods.   So I decided it was time for the dresses😬   Second day I worse a knee length black dress with tassles down the front and Khaki Maryjanes   Third Day I was back in a suit (Female cut)   Fourth day I went full Pink to match the Fuschia VIP Lounge with an ode to Molly Ringwold Pretty in Pink (Meets Korean style...as I was told by some Korean Gallerist)   Final day I had a deep green long dress with a lime green belt and sneakers plus a Retro short crop sand brown duster jacket.   Anyway on that day, I was busy trying to coral people into a talk at an Italian Gallery by a famous Italian Street Artist when my colleagues suddenly called me into the gallery.   I was wondering what emergency could have happened this time...   ...instead the artist then proceeded to point at a new piece of work (Featuring two frogs in suits graffitied)...and then announced that this new work was inspired by me being brave enough to be me.   It was rather touching.☺️   As the final last days progress, I noticed many of the Gallerist started to refer to me in the feminine as well, with 'What's up girl?" or if I was in with my female colleagues "here come the girls".   I even got a bouquet from the Lead painter who bought all the 'girls' flowers🤗   Of course there were still some floor crew who preferred to address me as "Sir" even if I was blatantly in a dress but it did not feel purposeful.   What to me felt interesting was how things turned when I forced the issue with the dresses.   I don't think my female colleagues were expecting me to come in in dress.   There was all their pre-opening night chatter about what they were each going to wear for the event but I wasn't asked and felt somewhat excluded.🙄   That I chose to wear blouse and pants kept any issue with me under lid.   But you should have seen the reaction the next day when I swooped in (all natural) in my black dress.   To her credit the floor boss immediately greeted me with "And how are you today girl?"   Anyway I seem to have made a mark on the little event with my dressing. Apparently I am more than on point and they loved the colour combinations felt I brought a spark to the proceedings.   Inside, I just felt I was being myself really. I would have liked to have had a more female range voice but I had been working with these people before meeting them in person over the phone in male voice so was unsure if I wanted to go female voice and throw such a strong curve ball at them (make it an unnecessary other issue from the work)   But they must have had somewhat of a shock anyway when they first met me in person with my long hair and quite obvious female clothing.😁   You should have seen the looks when I walked the floor in dresses.   Hopefully this is a positive strike for us all? I like to think so. Small steps forward.

      I'd hate to have to drop that from my vocabulary.  Don't get me wrong, I would to keep from offending anyone but it would be disappointing.   I heard this from someone in their mid 20's, so perhaps it's newish in the younger crowd or perhaps just their local area.  Thanks for your feedback.

      I've never heard that "term of endearment" to be considered a slur, whether aimed towards a trans person or a cis-person..  I've never seen it used that way in anything I've read or heard.  But I suppose anything is possible.   Carolyn Marie
