Finding my female look


This Ichi

Recommended Posts

My therapist gave me the advise to experiment a lot more. I take her advice by heart and so far it did help me quite a bit.

As a Genderfluid person I feel quite a big part genderneutral most of the time. Nontheless I am very curious to experience a full female appearance.

I will post ideas from time to time to hopefully get feedback of you.

This Topic is not only about fashion but I do not know where else to post this. Maybe I do split up the post when it comes to makeup?

It will take time not only because it is a lot to learn for me but all the stuff is expensive too. (just lost my mind yesterday as I saw the prices on chanel bags, omg and people tell me I am crazy 😜) well, no chanel handbag for me 😅

 

For no paticular reason I did start with my bodyparts first. My breasts (prothesis) will have bra cup size C. Also I did order my first gaff which is still on its way.

 

Yesterday I did try some wigs. Without telling much I am courious what you think of these two. Which one do you like better and why? I do not have a video with the dark wig.

Thank a lot for any opinions.

Personally, I think the lighter one suits your skin tone better. They look to be about the same style otherwise. Look for something that frames your face really well, it doesn't have to be as long as you probably think, though long hair is fun it's a GIANT PITA to keep looking nice.

 

Hugs!

I agree with Jackie 100% the lighter one is very complementary to your skin tone. On the other hand, the darker one accentuates the shadows of your facial features thus detracting from a more feminine appearance.

I think that the lighter one looks more natural.  It definitely suits you.

😊 Thanks so much for your feedback. I also like the blonde one better. The length is awesome, I didn't realize how long it actually is, because I felt so comfortable with it 😅

Ichi,

 

I'm glad you decided you like the lighter wig better.  I actually like the darker wig on you.  Getting opinions from others is always great, but in the end, it really has to be up to you. 

 

Finding your own feminine style can be a challenge, but if you approach it with a positive attitude, it can be a lot of fun.  Again, it becomes a series of personal choices that make you happy.  Good luck exploring.😄

Lately I tried to figure out cosmetics. Yesterday I went to a store in mall nearby. They also do makeup there and since I figured out I need help I booked for today. At first I was a little worried about sitting more or less in the middle of the store getting this done but it was ok. All in all I am happy with the result, I did learn a lot and while it was weird to run around with just my face done (no wig, cloths, breasts, etc.) it was fun.

 

There are some things I really liked:

-          -The colors she used

-          -She explained every step to me why she does it and how

-          -She wrote me a list with all the products she used

-          -Those lashes are not fake, only mascara 😊

 

Also 2 things I want to improve.

1. My eyebrowns are quite bushy and I will probably get them waxed.

2. She did not use color corrector to cover my beard, which i want to try to see the difference.

@Vidanjali 🤗 Thank you, you safed the day for me. I had a litte a rough one, nothing bad happend or so but well just one of those days. 💛

@Vidanjali is so right!  Joyful attitude and a smiling face are probably the most attractive looks for anybody!  Outer beauty can fade with time, but inner beauty shines brighter the more it is cultivated.  😊

      A while back, I submitted an application to Veterans Affairs for support for hearing loss.  My audiologist figured I had a good case, having been around jet engines for several years. Today, the benefits package brochure arrived in the mail.   I now have coverage for hearing services and devices.  I will be ordering a pair of hearing aids soon.   It also covers prescription drugs.  I had been claiming my HRT under my wife's civil service pension plan.  It covered about 75% of the generic patches, but only about 30% of the brand name patches that I prefer.  The Veterans Affairs package covers 100%, including for the brand name patches - I already checked!   And there could also be a small pension on the way for the hearing loss.  I hope to hear about that soon.  And there are various other benefits I could become entitled to in future.   The requirements to be considered a veteran are pretty simple.  You have to have completed Basic Training and have an houourable discharge.   I had heard that Veterans Affairs was pretty generous (my wife used to work for them, so she gave me the scoop), and I am happy to find out that it is true.  I need the hearing aids, and the full ride on my HRT is a nice bonus.

      Being of southern descent I use the Southern Woman Variant. I just smile sweetly and say, "Bless your heart" int that Steel Magnolia tone. Works like a charm.

      I had to get new wipers for my car, so that meant going to one of the big auto parts stores. I only go to them for fluids, car cleaning stuff, and wipers. Even before my transition. Because they don't carry real parts for my car.   So I walk in after work. I'm looking nice, have makeup on, the whole works. I'm sitting there looking at the wipers. I know what size I need. I'm just comparing the hundreds of wipers.   this 20 some thing man. Asked if I needed help. I'm like nope im just looking for what I want. He asked if I knew what I was looking for. I'm like ysa just wipers. He then asked if I knew what size. At this point I'm getting a little testy. im like a 16 or 18in wiper and a 22in wiper. I can't recall the little one size right now.    He then asked me year, make, and model of my car. I'm thinking this dude doesn't get it. I know what I'm looking for. I told him im know the sizes I need. He wouldn't shut up, so I gave him the stupid info. Hes like you are correct ma'am thats the sizes you need. I must have given him that look every man knows. When a woman is annoyed with them. He didn't speak to me after. Even checking me out.

      This sort of statement is true about everything related to my transition.

      Well, well well… I never knew.  They're still fun to bust - just not as much.

      I normally keep my headphones level set at 16.  At that level, I don't hear the bulbs breaking.  When I cranked the level up to 90, I heard them.

      I had the connection thing with girls/women as far as I recall which is about 5. Lot's of things I didn't notice because of life events. It is all mostly spelled out in three sequential blog posts, you can start here if your interested - https://stephiegurl.home.blog/2021/07/26/trying-to-look-back-through-the-gender-fog-part-1/.   Good luck.

      @awkward-yet-sweet. Yes, you're correct about transmission wires, they are mostly aluminum; particularly residential service mains (ie: from the power pole to the house). The vandalism was directed at the transformers, though. Electricity is transmitted at about 50000 volts A/C if I recall correctly. Residential power is delivered at 220 volts A/C. The transformers' function is to "step down," or reduce the voltage, the service main wires' function is to deliver the stepped down power. The internal wiring of the transformers can be either copper or aluminum. Copper is more common in transformers because it's more efficient as a conductor.

      Welcome Miss Robin,   I'm sure you will find that there are a lot of people here who have the same feelings, and experiences as you. I too, AMAB always thought I should have been a girl, and now a woman. I however took the male over compensation route, doing everything I could to prove to myself, and others that I was a Man. Well I'm done with that, and now I'm transitioning to be the woman I know myself to be. There will be others chiming in to welcome you. Look around, jump in on some conversations, you're among like people here at TransPuluseForums. This is a family friendly site.   Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Good afternoon everyone,    Here’s a video of my breaking of the lights. I found that I only have sound when I’ve clicked on the page first.  IMG_9073.MOV

      Hi im a 27 year old male or at least thats what they decided to brand me as at birth.   But im not sure about that , i have always for as long as i can remember been very different from other boys . When i was little I always wanted to play with the girls , we played with dolls and dressed up as princesses. When i got older i always had a easier time connecting with girls and spending time with them was much better then hanging out with boys my age.    This continues to this day and i have started thinking that i might feel more connected with them because I somewhere inside always wanted to be a girl. When i was younger i always dreamed at night about turning into a girl and i never missed a chance to have makeup or dress up in my moms clothes.    a few years ago i came out as Bi and i have found that I prefer to be the bottom with men that would pass as straight cis men.   I haven’t thought about this for several years but recently I broke up with my ex and since then i have started to explore with wearing womens clothes again. I bought myself a pair of high rise jeans and panties , i even bought myself a bra .  I also had a girlfriend put makeup on me.   And it just feels right , i feel comfortable in the clothes and i feel complete.   I know you people aren’t therapists but i want to see if somebody have the same experience or can relate.

      Good afternoon Stella, (only guessing)   I didn't comment on your September posting, and I love all the responses you received. My original coming out to my wife was much like yours, and the folks here were great help. I'm glad you are working through the issues that come with being in a relationship, and transgender. Suzie and I are two years into my coming out and slow transition. We have more open and honest conversations, even inside jokes now that she knows.   Happy Holidays to you and yours,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Wowie! Well...a bunch of the 80 somethings I've known had great hearing (don't even think of getting away with gossip if they were anywhere near 😷)  
    • awkward-yet-sweet
      😂 Here I was wondering if I was the only one who did that... its like I have a compulsion to do it every time the page refreshes.    I'm going to trot off now, chew on the furniture, shriek a bit, and maybe knock something off a shelf.  I don't belong in the house.

      @Petra Jane old or not, it certainly has a following.  I must admit I never heard it before the recording provided by @Colleen Henderson so thank you for that, Colleen.  I always use my iPad and it apparently doesn’t always behave itself.   Willow
