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 😉

      That should be interesting...you’ll have to share how it all went.  I will be doing the same in the next few weeks if all works out.
    • DonnaBall
      Well I finally brought it up to her a few days ago and she was ready to deal with it, and to my surprise and relief, she was agreeable to everything that I had proposed.  I think she just wants to get this separation over with so we can stop living together under this cloud.  It will still take a while though as I need to get a mortgage to keep the condo and pay her the share of our assets and then she will have to find a condo for herself, get a mortgage and close and move out.  That all takes months.  I can't wait to start living as Donna full time.

      We now know a judge to avoid.  He could and may find himself up on judicial ethics violation charges in the future.  I was just reading something from an actual elected trial judge about that sort of thing.

      Hi, Dillon. I live with my mom, and she is very resistant to my transition. She doesn’t even like to talk about it.  But she is getting better about it. She even took me to my appointment to get my first testosterone shot recently, which is huge for her!  Having parents who support you is such a comfort, but many of us don’t have that. But that can change over time. My family is starting to use my preferred name and pronouns, if only sporadically. I try to take each correctly gendered occasion as a small personal victory.  Celebrate the little things on your journey. Big things are coming!

      Better yet, go into a beauty supply store that has clip in hair extensions, (the same type of store that sells the dye) and buy one or two colors of the cheapest ones to try out, and then you will do even less than the damage even dye would.  The extensions are fun to use and do not cost much in synthetic hair types. https://www.sallybeauty.com/color-strip-clip-in-hair-extension/HAIRDO2.html   I buy things at Sally Beauty supply but other places have them too.

      You are probably better off discussing your physical options with a physician. Maybe you've already done that. There are other FtM members here who could also offer helpful advice. I wish you the best of luck! Believe me, I relate to your feelings of dysphoria.   Hugs,   Robin68

      Hello everyone. I would like to thank you very much for your responses and I would also like to apologize for not doing so earlier. After reading your responses (and some that I have received elsewhere) I've been spending a lot of time reflecting on my options and the future. I'm actually still thinking about it right now, I am truly not sure which path I will take exactly at this moment. However, I should not have neglected to respond to all of you, that have helped give me some peace of mind. I am no longer panicking as I was before, when I felt I had a biological time bomb on my person. The fact that I was able to take my time thinking about this at all is in large part thanks to you all.   Vicky, your kind words despite my fumbling around with these forums in my panic were invaluable to me. As I mentioned earlier I do not interact with many people neither irl nor online and that first mistake I made nearly convinced me to keep things that way; until I received your words of encouragement. Thank you for welcoming me to these forums so kindly.   Jani, your quick response helped me feel connected to other people like me when until now I've felt almost completely alone in these matters. Your reminder that the body's response to any hormone can be dictated in large part by genetics was the first thing that took my mind off the feeling that I had allowed myself to miss my one chance to live like I wanted. I have to remember that it is never too late to change.   Jackie, your words helped put things into perspective. Sometimes, I admit, I feel old at my age already. I felt like I had allowed my body to miss any and all chances to grow the way I wanted it to, but that changed a little reading your response. Knowing of someone that had felt the same way I was feeling in that moment, and was now happy with their appearance, really shook me off that state of mind. I cannot change the past, but that fact doesn't mean I can no longer be happy with my self.   Shawna, thanks for your answer. I really wish I could have gotten HRT before puberty but I didn't even know any of this was even possible. I don't know if I'll ever be entirely rid of that regret but you are right. It is what it is. I can only look forward, I cannot let the past prevent me from enjoying the present and the future.   Once more thank you to everyone. Since I posted these questions I've done some more digging around and found a group of people that may be able to help me getting HRT in my city if I wish to take that path. At the moment, I feel like that may be what I will do. However, I am taking my time to decide these things, and that is a big change from before. I was ready to start any kind of treatment however I could get it. Now I feel I don't have to take such drastic actions in order to secure my happiness. My anxiety is not entirely gone, but I am able to manage it more easily thanks to the help of people like you ladies.

      I did talk to her mom on the phone too.She is glad I do treat her right and she did ask me this.I plan to be there when they reunite.

      Thanks Jani & @SaraAW ...it has been so nice.  I hope to learn more about my bio family in time now that I’ve unlocked Pandora’s box.   I wish you and Nikki the best of luck on your reunion. Hopefully, Nikki will get all the answers about her bio mom & family she’s been searching for all her life.   Susan R🌷

      I highly recommend aikido as a self-defense martial art. I did it for only a couple of years, but I understand enough of it to see that it is a great way to get out of/end trouble. There are no strikes in it. It is only defense. I wish that my old dojo were still open. I’d be there every week.
    • TrIIIy
      I think about this often. I would love to be 6’4” (my dad’s height) and buff with a deep voice! I’m 5’7” with a curvy body and a high voice. I’ve always been told that I could be a model. That seemed like such a waste, since I wanted a man’s body and features. I’d gladly swap bodies with an average dude.   Of course, I would also love to not have crippling misophonia or ocd.   The deep voice and buff body may come in time, though!

      After more consideration and looking at altered photos, I'm not so sure about black hair anymore. I'm not sure it'll look good with my skin, and if I don't like it, it's not going away without significant damage to my hair or cutting it off.   That being the case, I'm wondering what will compliment my dark brown hair if I leave the bulk of it natural, and I was thinking of maybe getting a white or light blond streak? Kind of like this this girl, but not as much white to start with. I usually wear my hair in a ponytail, I like the idea of a bold platinum blonde streak going across my head and into a ponytail. If I don't like it, I can easily dye it brown like the rest, and it still won't be a whole lot of my hair if it gets too damaged.  
    • AdriannaB
      My wife Nikki was adopted,saw a smile on her face today.Talked to her bio mom for the first time this afternoon.It was her dream to reunited with her and I supported Nikki through this.They get to reunite next week.Did find out why.Her mom was 15 when she gave birth to her,couldn't take care of her and Nikki understood this.Good thing is her parents that adopted Nikki gave her a great life.
    • ShawnaLeigh
      Yes my princess.  At your command.  Lol Thsts pretty neat though.  I’d be proud of that.
