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:

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.

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. 😄

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 😉

      I have been reading a few threads regarding trans Homicide. It got me thinking.     We are even allocated a special day. Transgender day of rememberance to remind us of and to recall and in our own way grieve for our fallen brothers and sisters who have been murdered for there right to express themselves in the manner they feel is right for them. I also have found articles online expressing that Trans homicides are  now at an  and I quote "Epidemic Levels". Are they faking it and Scaring people into hiding? Not revealing ourselves for fear of mortal demise. Or are we trying for some kind of hysteria? Should we be scared? Should we all fear the reaper when we leave what we regard as a safe place? particully whenever this day of remeberance comes personally it reminds me that my life could be in danger. Regardless of how well you fit into the social norms and with no regard of how well you pass if thats the word you like to use. So I decided to actually look at the figures to see how this panned out. The figures do tell quite an interesting story . Let me take the UK for instance. The total number of Trans persons murdered in the UK Between October 2017 to September 2018 was 1 The total number of homicides for this time period was 726 murders. population  66.04 Million So just one person was murdered. because of there trans status out of Seven hundred and Twenty Six persons. I personally do not consider this an epidemic of murders against the Trans comunity.  To put this into perpective. Just Deaths from road accidents were 1,710 for this time period.   So I decided to look a little deeper. Remember our figures will be lower in my opnion because firearms offences are very rare for us. Lets now take the United States same Time frame. Murders assiociated with being trans 28. Total number of murders in the United states for the same time period. 17,284  So considering the amount of recorded homicides it again is hardly an epidemic. Population 327.2 million Now lets look into the highest recorded number of trans related homicides in the world. Brazil. Which I consider a much more violent country in general if you go by population to homicide rate. With a total of 167 out of a total number of recorded homicides of 63,880. Population 209.3 Million I have taken the step of leaving out any statistics on if these people were in the Sex industry or not and just rounded it up. who would by default have a higher chance of being a victim of homicide. as a murder is still a murder regardless.   The population of the world is estimated at 7.53 Billion and the total global trans related murders 369 for the time period   Even Turkey Who by definition dislike anything Trans related theres only 7     So in reality being murdered because of your trans status is still very rare considering the total of Homicides in general. In saying that One murder is One to many. Not only is the person had there life taken from them The ripples from that effect so many others in a life changing way.  Murder is a Horible crime. Taking another life in this way is wrong on every level regardles of the reasons behind  For me Trangender day of remembrance should still be the day when we recall the fallen. But do not let it make you in fear of your life. As in reality it is still not an epidemic. This day. When it comes to pass again I will still spend time thinking of those who have had there lives taking from them for what they stand for in the same way I remember The fallen from conflicts on rememberance Sunday but will now understand that I am not in mortal danger as soon as i walk out of my door. I hope this has also made any of you who have been scared to reveal yourselfs to the world in the belief your in peril.   We are all in danger going by the statistics but not for being trans and most certainly not for being anything other than ourselves Link to figures here   Transrespect Versus Transphobia Worldwide. This is the source of figures often cited by trans campaigners.   Please bare in mind there is not yet an official, standardised method for recording the deaths of trans people across the UK or indeed world wide. But these are the figures widely used and accepted   Do you agree? Should we still be scared? have i missed something fundamental in my conclusion? Please do correct me if im wrong. Forums are for disscussion.     Please note I could do another thread on hate crime but I am considering Homicide for the purpose of this post as this is what the day in question is about and for the fallen. It does make me thinkthe public in general  are being deliberatly misled.   So to sumerise. Dont panic whenever you open the newspaper  In reality you are more likely to get hit by a bus crossing the street than you are being a victim of homicide. So be safe. Be careful and dont put yourself in danger. Pre emptive common sense is always the best safety net.   On another note if God forbid anything ever happened to me I would personally like to be remembered as a fallen woman and not as a trans related statistic. This is what I strive to be

      Here's an update: I think I have started my period some months ago. Every month, I get brown discharge from my genital area and the scars occur at the same time. I haven't told my parents about it. It seems so weird to tell them! I have also noticed another weird thing. During my mid cycle(ovulation time, probably) I always get a nosebleed. I checked the net and found that women with pcos have such nosebleeds whenever they ovulate.

      What i see in this story is alcohol.  Too often drink is involved problems aren't far behind. As an active alcoholic i got myself into trouble on several occasions.  Sobriety makes that much less likely today even though i have fully transitioned.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I agree about being safe. Even though I am a Harley Davidson riding biker witch. I am not a drinker, the last drink I can remember was in 2006. I choose not to drink. I try not to frequent places where my safety would be at risk. But in this day and age, that could be anywhere from the local gas station to Wally world.   Be safe all.   Kymmie

      Be aware If your in the UK there is a shortage of estrogen products Mainly patches. But this will filter down to Pills etc very soon I believe as they precribe alternative products.   want to know more?   and from the beeb   I had my Patches restocked about 2 weeks ago. However this was a stuggle  I have been been given a few boxes of a diffrent brand and am still waiting from a phone call from the chemist to complete my order. So If you havent got them yet then be prepared for troubled waters for a while.   Not that im a pesamist but if the Goverment have got involved then i wouldnt hold your breath that we are going to see anything changing very soon.

      Ok I can update on this now. After all the tests.   Which were. Many Blood tests. Mainly blood work etc. Iron Studies Ultrasound of my upper abdomin. Checks Liver, Stomach, Gall Bladder, Kidneys, Etc etc   In a nutshell.   Yes HRT Can potentially raise ferritin levels Thats from my gender therapist not i just pulled it out of google. Mine are raised. However Not by much. At least nothing to be concerned about. Being honest depending on where you go Mine could read normal. But in the NHS scale im about 100 higher than i should be. Which in reality is very little considering you would only have a problem if you was over the 1500's   My iron is normal just the ferritin is raised which as stated above could be hrt However it could also be i did exercise after toast with a big dollop of marmite.   Yes I love marmite.   So it would appear im out of the woods. So your stuck with me for a little longer.

      Hi  I hope as your journey begins you find that peace that we on the same journey have found. As I started my HRT it confirmed everything for me. It was like driving a car that you drove all your life it’s all you knew. All of a sudden someone puts the gasoline in instead of diesel fuel the car runs better than before               If it’s truly your path you will know just take things one day at a time                       Best of luck to you                              Sharon Aml

      I ask this question. I assume in the picture is the transsexual woman in question. In my opnion there is nothing there to openly give away that she was anything else other than a woman. Therefore how did this attacker know she was a Transsexual?  Attacks physically or verbally on anyone is very wrong regardless but why was she singled out? I also note the article is very poorly written. Im no Grammer expert. Far from it But theres a big diffrence between Cheese cakes and Pea cakes. I would assume this is a translation error. However It would have been nice to have been proof read before publication (Thats something the daily mail wouldnt do) I noticed also it doesnt give her name. Which to me seems strange as shes happy to share her picture.  Btw its nice to see someone other than me still use the word Transsexual in there describrition. I was under the impression that this word was only used to describe Dinosaurs and people like me. So yay if its making a comeback     So Malta gay Rights movement Ask these questions. Why is the alledged perpertrator got his face pixelated. Name and shame.  If he did whats alledged. This is a way to catch him i would have been inclined to think. So he could be punnished for this alledged  crime. If a crime has happened. Your not gonna catch him if you cannot identify him. Msida only has a population of 8,545  or there abouts he wont be to hard to find.   It doesnt sway from the fact. LETS ALL BE CAREFULL OUT THERE.  Dont put yourself in a postion where you dont feel you can not remove yourself from with haste. Stay safe
    • Maid In Bedlam
      One sided story. Its a Media thing. It makes news to portray the trans person as the one that was the victim. I would really like to know what happened before they was chucked out. Was it justified?  They never told you the reasons and what was said. All you see is people being thrown out. Wheres the interview with the straight hetro couple. My god why so many labels? It wouldnt have made the news if they wasnt trans. If they had not had such a heavy drinking session as Vicky highlighted then perhaps this wouldnt have happened. It was noted the amount of booze was flowing. I know women that butter wouldnt melt in there mouths. if they are sober but get a drink in them and they are like wild banshees. Me personally if i have had one to many ill just giggle a lot and smile like a chesire cat   I will grant you they was a little heavy handed.  Surely thats assault. Maybe the trans group should seek legal advise instead of protesting?
