Various apps.

I’m not really sure where to put this but I’ve been experimenting with a few corny apps on my phone and came up with my new avatar. A few phone apps actually give you tools to see what your face might look like made up a certain way or with different hair. I found one that while I was not exactly 100% pleased with the results it did eventually make me feel better about how I will look dressed up after so many years. I also put that photo through a few more apps like one that makes you a 3D avatar from your photo, and filters until I got closer to my real face proportions. Even if it’s not exactly how I would look with makeup and hair it does look fairly close except the lips which I’m not flattered with in the pic. I also did facial recognition research and was surprised when the result was Jamie Lee Curtis. So now I have a realistic look to go for once I go back to being femme. Technology is really interesting these days. So yes my avatar is based on my actual face. However it comes off to me as a little cartoony. I thought I would share this in case some might find it helpful.

Here’s something much closer to my actual face than before.

The newest one is softer and looks more naturally feminine.  I like the brighter look of the eyes there too.

Thanks Vicky, I’m putting my selfie into a few hair and makeup apps and then photoshop for a dreamy look. This is much better than the avatar creator I used before. It is more realistic. I’m still too shy to post what I look like with just the wig but it’s honestly not too far off except my face is not made up so it looks more manly. I like the bangs though.

I think this looks more like Linda Hamilton but the AI keeps calling me Carol Burnett lol.

Make them a little more arched over your nose to show off your eyebrows and open the face up a bit and it will be a pretty good start on discovering you!!  Always get the bangs on a wig cut to your face by a trained stylist.  In my gallery I show several wigs off, and they were all trimmed to my face.  You cannot do that with an APP really, but that is my nickle!

Good tip! Thanks. I’ve got several bookmarked and have to wait for a month or so before I can justify the cost but I figure a good wig is worth the money if it gets me out in the real world. Makeup is easier and doing theatre taught me some things but I’m still watching tutorials for some new techniques. So far this is pretty close to what I see in my minds eye. Almost reminds me of Barbara Streisand a little bit too. I’m not looking to be a look alike though because I’d rather be me. Maybe in a couple months I can try to emulate this look and post a live pic of it for comparison.

      Thank you. Because you like them here are some more. These pieces are to show courage. In the first one I chose pink because I wanted to show she was fighting for love.    Second piece she has a pink wolf. A wolf is suppose to be a vicious animal but when tamed my love it becomes a girl’s best friend.    Last piece I chose blue and red (red is my favorite color) Blue is for male and red is for female. The two are mixed but present together bring about harmony and strength.   I can’t take credit for the picture but I was the one who colored it. Enjoy!    Love   Tessa👩‍🦳
    • jo_g
      That's true, thanks.  I think I'll give them a call, but am hoping it'll be OK to shave sooner rather than later. 😂
    • jo_g
      Great news! Super happy for you.
    • MarcieMarie12
      Hi Jo-g, I will add everyones experience with laser and electrolysis is a bit different. I went through laser without lidocaine,. But for electrolysis I needed it since it took for ever. I did not worry about my body hair, as with HRT it turnedo ut less than most cis girls.   In regards to the not shaving, I was not told that in regards to laser for myself. But I can see they might have a reason for it. From not irritating the skin, to seeing how effective the treatment is. Your technician may also be worried about scarring. But in the end asking them about will tell you more, as they might also be trying to gauge the effectiveness of things.
    • SaraAW
      Naomi, I feel your pain. No matter how many different directions I shave in, I have a permanent very dark shadow. Within a couple of hours, you can use my face like coarse sand paper.  I’m torn between starting laser or electrolysis. Most of my hair is still really dark, with just a few patches of gray.    As for body hair, shaving or even using depilatories leaves me with insane ingrown hairs. I’ve actually started plucking chest hair to help with the GD, but it takes for ever. I might try waxing.    I wish you all luck in the quest for smooth hair free skin.    *hugs*

      A second hand makeup manual that I picked up some time ago suggests that liquids like mascara and liquid foundation are good for about 6 months, while pressed powders and the like should be good for up to 2 years with proper storage (though it bears frequently checking their viability during that time).
    • SaraAW
      They look great. Well done!
    • DeeDee
      Gosh Jackie that sounds like a genuine epiphany moment! It is not a bad thing to be able to forgive hurt, this world would be a much better and safer place if others could be as big hearted as you seem to be  
    • DeeDee
      Hi Lexi, pleased to meet you. I have found the friendliness, knowledge and support of people here to be invaluable!  
    • DeeDee
      That's just simply fantastic news! well done Susan! ❤️
    • SaraAW
      Welcome Lexi. I’m only a couple of years older than you and in a similar situation, without a child though.  It can definitely be stressful and worrying at times. But as I begin to learn to listen more to myself and what I feel inside, the better I am feeling.    I’m hoping to see a GT shortly, my GP is researching to help me find someone qualified in the area.    Lots of great people here, lots of information and many relatable stories.    Welcome.    *hugs*
