Photo shoot photos

Hi,

 

I went for a makeover day and photoshoot recently. Is it okay if I share some photos from it and get your opinions on some things?

So first thing, I tried on a lot of different wigs and I wonder which styles I should consider styling my hair in future.

 

Here is me with my current natural hair:

And here are the different wigs:

 

1.

Which do people think would work well on me when my hair grows long enough?

Hey Kris, looking good! Sounds like you had some fun! :)

 

If I'm allowed to pitch in, my fav i 7 followed by 8, and I also really like 6 (but that's my personal taste)! But you look good in all of them, although I didn't really care much for #3. I think the darker tones compliment your skin tone best. But I'm no expert, it's just my personal humble preference!

 

 

 

In the end, it should be about what makes you feel good and most like yourself! Something that expresses your personality! That's something I struggled myself with, usually what others thought looked best on me didn't feel right because it catered to their perspective of me and their gender preconceptions.

 

Also, if I may, I find that have a style icon helps.

 

Anyway, what are your favs out of these?

Thanks for this. I think it might be the case that darker colours work better on me as I am rather pale. 

 

The thing is I really like all of them (there were more we tried but didn't include here) . Currently looking at these my gender euphoria is shooting right up so I find it hard to judge. All my brain goes is "OMG so pretty!!!" 😍😍😍

 

As such I wanted to get other people's thoughts as well.

Looking at your photos makes me happy, I think because I can sense your excitement :)

 

I think you don't have to stick to darker, if you don't want to, as long as the color has warmer tones in it I think you can do blond. If you fancy it of course!

 

I had a phase where I was really into reading about how to look your best what all that, back when I thought I had to stick to being f. Turns out there is more to just dark and light. I came across a lot of stuff about warm and cold undertones, in skin and hair and how it's all about complementing your natural undertones. Or something like that. It's a whole world of it's own!

 

Looking at the photos again, your make-up looks pretty warm too, so maybe that's also why I find that the warmer hair suits you best..? Cause they go together well. I don't know, I'm sorry I think I'm getting into graphic designer mode! :P

Haha fair enough. 

It is just so weird for me to look at pictures like this and like what I see of myself and feel they are actually me.

Hi Kris, not surprised you are happy to see yourself, some lovely photos 🙂 Not that anyone other than you matters in these things, but I liked 1,6 and 9, as I think they look most natural for everyday use and emphasise things like your cheekbones and your kawaii eyes - but I have to say that 6 was my personal favourite of the ones you have put up - possibly because it looks like you are close to being able to do that anyway with your natural hair.

Hello Kris, The make up was done very nicely.  I must say I like number 1 your natural hair as it does look "natural".  The last one looks good on you as well.  As far as looking pale, estrogen will seem to do that.  We eventually loose any rudiness in our skin.  My mother commented soon after I started E that I needed a little pink blush to give my face some color.  As you see it makes a world of difference.   It seems to be the trend now but I find some women go too heavy and wide with the eyebrows.  I favor lighter, thinner ones.  Something to consider.  

 

Looking at photos such as these is enjoyable, seeing the woman that was locked inside.  Enjoy!

Maybe i'm showing my age but apart from your own hail i like # 6.  It is stunning as it shows off your eyes and while the color may say older the cut and your face says young, perky and energetic.

 

 

Hugs,

Ah thank you.

 

I am not on Estrogen yet (just naturally pale) but I feel quite complimented you thought I was.

To be fair I have known mums who go out of their way to dress like the first photo just to collect their kids from school in a 4x4 that has never been off road in its life, but they are universally despised by the rest of us who just try to get there on time - so - absolutely, right place right right time applies to cis women too. 😁

I'm going to be a bit of a rebel here, but #8 looks easily what your hair can become for you.  I agree with Char that they are a bit over the top for office wear or grocery shopping, but going out for a nice evening totally do it for you.

The last one with the silver hairpiece is very nice.  That style suits you face really well.  That color is fashionable now and you can see why, it makes your eyes just shine.  

 

On my earlier comment, oops my bad! but I'm glad I made your day. 😄

 

Cheers,

Thank you all for your lovely comments you are brilliant. 

Honestly still can't believe how happy these pictures and people's comments are making me. My gender euphoria is just so high. 

 

On the hair I think I am probably musing between 6 and 7 now. A lot of different people have told me how good I would look in 6 and it was a lot of fun looking like that. But 7 maybe feels more me. But I am going to keep musing. (And staring at all the pictures to keep giving me that sweet euphoria 😍

Stunning photos.  Makeup is done very well and compliments your bone structure perfectly.  I like all the wigs on you but favor 1, 8, & 9 most. Your natural hair is very nice too.  You're looking great and I like your outfit in the second photo in the second set of pics.

 

Thanks for sharing,

Susan R🌷

I think 2&6 for wigs. Scrolling through those two look most naturally flowing. 

I like the full photos too. That looks like a fun thing to do. But I’ll keep my thoughts on style to myself cause......

This is kind of who I am. 🤷🏻‍♀️  I’ll 100% wear a dress an wedge heels to grocery shop. And I enjoy putting in the effort on myself all the time. Live hard and play hard. Always.

the first full photo is how I look too most of the time when I am out shopping. I know most cis women don't look like that but it makes me happy and I feel more comfy in a bodycon dress and high heels than jeans and flats.

lol, serves me right for typing that. :) 🤗 It isn't the looking good Kirsten - that's just being a yummy mummy - it's the looking like you just stepped out of a salon and are actually on your way out for an evening of ballroom dancing or theatre, I have heard lots of grumbles and sniping as the invisible 'man... but at the end of the day people can and should dress however they want to, some ways will always just stand out more.

I know what you meant Dee. It’s mostly for me partly because I dress like a guy basically all the time for my job. So when I am not in jeans work boots and tattered shirts, I am in fancy look at me kind of outfits with plenty of makeup and colored hair and all that kind of stuff. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just like it I guess. That’s kinda who “that girl” is. And just ask my wife. I am very much one of those girls I guess. Lol. I think it’s supposed to be a bad thing, but not to me. 😉

I'll chime in that I liked 5, 7, 8, & 9...with 8 being my favorite. Ombre is a very popular look with the gals stateside right now. But those red tones in your second set of photos are rockin'! You could really pick any of them and be stunning. Thanks for sharing! And let us know which one you end up choosing 😉

      Your Gynecologist is your best resource.  I tell girls on the way to GCS to line up a post-op Gynecologist who does know Trans people and who has permission to communicate with their surgeons.  It was a little bit funny when I got home from GCS and was hurting while dilating pretty badly and called to schedule an appointment with a Gyn, and they told me the one the HMO wanted me to see had just gotten back from training by Dr. Meltzer and would see me the next day.  Took her six minutes to diagnose a yeast infection and two pills later, all better, but she called my Surgeon (Marci Bowers) and got acquainted since I had r3leases with both of them.   I have a Cis woman friend with vaginismus and while her dilators are a bit different, we can both commiserate.

      You guessed it on the pill reason.  Not the stomach so much as the liver though.  The injection and epidermal methods do not involve the liver as much as pills do.  As far as the estrogen gel goes, I have a tube of it about 8 feet away from me, but it works best on cis women and Trans women who are post op with a GCS technique that does create a mucous tissue inside the vagina. Estrogen in pill form is the form most likely to cause blood clots due to liver interaction.

      Welp, I just did my first self-injection of testosterone! Super scary, but manageable.   I am going to be chronicling my transition by taking a picture of myself every week for at least a year. I hope to have a nice montage by the end of year one! I will eventually post the video on YouTube. No links, I know, but it will be there.   Excitement!

      Ah, confidence will help a ton. Which, recently I find myself having more confidence when he is around. I also have really bad trust and abandonment issues, which he is helping me with. I am very cautious when I like someone. It blows my mind when someone tells me that they like me. I will work on my confidence and self respect.     thank you guys a ton

      Flirting isn’t a skill. It’s a comfort level.  You have to have a few things to make it work.  You have you really be interested in the person. Not just smitten.  You have to be confident in yourself as a lovable person and someone who is also desirable.  You have to relax and let things flow.  You can not plan or act out anything anyone else has said.  It can not be forced.  It comes from inside you as a confident playfulness.  Being clever and humorous is only a small part of it. But it helps a lot.   The biggest thing is to believe in yourself and be brave.  Eventually you see it’s not hard or scary.   just be you.

      Hey Michelle, the heavy dose of masculinity you quoted above reminds me so much of myself and where I came from.  The description is slightly different from mine in detail but very manly, none the less. It sounds like you’re able to look past these male features to see and feel the real you. It was easier for a time growing up to conform to the expected standards set before us but as you and I have both found, it doesn’t last forever.  Eventually, a good number of us see through the mask we put on and start to take control of the situation despite what society or culture dictates.  I congratulate you on getting to this very important part of your journey.  It will make things even better if your wife accepts you as you and becomes a vital support in this journey too.  I wish you the best in either case.   Susan R🌷

      Just something I'm curious about... the three most common methods of administering estrogen are pills, patches, and shots, but from what I can gather, the three most common methods of administering testosterone are patches, shots, and skin gels that you rub in like hand sanitizer. I've never heard of testosterone pills. Anyone know why? Does testosterone not survive in the stomach to get absorbed into the blood? Or for that matter, why is there no estrogen gel? 
    • Cara
      Another update -- the problem is actually called vaginismus, and caused by contraction of the vaginal muscles making intercourse painful or not possible. It is not necessarily even related to gender surgery -- it is not uncommon in genetic women. The treatment is... dilation, even for genetic women, and can be handled by someone's regular gyn physician.
