Halloween dressing.

I keep seeing posts about CDers  only dressing and going out in public on Halloween.

I never understood why they couldn't go out dressed any day they wanted and why they are so fixated with Halloween.

Not being one who gets into Halloween and dressing up as some kind of character it just makes me wonder what their train of thought is.

Because nobody judges you on Halloween. You can be whoever, or whatever, you like and nobody cares. It's just a costume. It's all just for fun.

 

I have a bi-gendered friend who mostly goes this route, though she comes out for other events. Her friends all know what's going on, what name to use, etc... but she limits herself to events. I suppose it's a good way to remain closeted without being closeted? I mean the people that would accept her know, but she can still point at the circumstances and tell her boss that it was a costume.

 

Not something I was willing to do (obviously) but it (mostly, she still struggles with bouts of depression) works for her.

 

Hugs!

Oh….      Then it's really not a Satanic Cult of some kind?

Heh Heh

The first time I ever wore a dress was for Halloween.  Of course I was just a kid and had never heard of "transgender" or cross dressing either as far as I know.  But I still remember it - was one thing I thought about when I was trying to figure myself out much later.

Depends on who you ask. A friend of mine had to "patrol the perimeter" for "signs of demons" on Halloween night so nobody would get possessed.

The big thing about Halloween is that it is safe to dress however you want.  Nobody will question your masculinity if

 

But I made it a point of never wearing female clothes at Halloween.  I didn't want anyone to get the impression that it was a costume, or that I was "dressing up".

I don't dress differently for Halloween, but of course I wear female clothes all the time anyway.  I usually have some candy for the kids on hand, but nobody comes out here and I'm forced to eat it myself.  It's rough.

I guess the difference  is I am transgender and not a CDer.

I don't have any guy clothes other than some flannel shirts so its girl clothes 24/7

<laugh> Same here. I've been told that flannel shirts and racerbacks are the traditional garb of my people (I'm very, very gay) so... They're also pretty darn comfortable and snuggly warm in the winter.

I've used Halloween as "cover" for trying out new thing for years.

This has been a thought in back of my mind but maybe I'll just wear a cute dress.

I was paying for my gas one Halloween night and a CDer came in and the guy cashier was a bit on the rude side and called the guy a fa&&ot so I tend to think Halloween isn't the all forgiving day a lot of CDers think it is.

The cashier never said a word to me or called me any names.

A good portion of my boobs were on display so maybe that was the key passing that afternoon.

      Coming out 22 years was a relief for me,I was crossdressing part time at the time and was at a crossroads if I was happy being part time or fulltime as Bre.Also was weighing out things too,realized I liked dressing as Bre more.It included realizing wearing the male wardrobe was getting boring to wear.I always liked the feminine wardrobe more including the shoes.Then one day before thanksgiving came over and asked my real parents whom took me in when I was 10 years old.Told me the ball is in my court,make the right choice.It was two days later I came back finally came out I am going fulltime.Took it well and knew I was going to be much happier.It was great with my 2 younger sisters too,they have looked up to me as a big sister to this day.Best part was bringing some boxes over and dumped my male clothes and shoes in them finally getting rid of them.To this day,zero regrets and never going back dressing in guy mode ever again

      This sounds hard.  I hope you can find peace soon.

      I have no words. 😞 I can only offer prayers for your peace.

      Is it worth it?  I've got a ton of money invested in myself and I think I received a good value.  As to the grief, the hard part passes and you move forward.  I can't say I've lost anyone.  I will say I've met some amazing people though.  Going with the flow is an option, albeit painful at times.  The choice is ours to make.

      I knew I could transition when Christine Jorgensen was news.  I just never felt strongly about it and there was always the internal question of if i may.  Over the years I didn't learn how to fit in but how to play a role.  I've been playing that role for so long I've grown into the part.  Is it worth all the time and money and grief to leave that role behind?  It's so much easier to just go with the flow.

      It is going to like my new job.New boss,she is glad I work with the transgender and crossdresser community very well including the genetic women

      Ahhh, life is a mystery isn't it?   Until I realized I could!  As to hobbies and such I can be like that.  If you tried to put all these thoughts aside, could you?  Quite possibly not, at least at this point.  The question really is how far do you need to go to feel happy?   Answer that and you'll be golden.   Jani

      I want to apologise to @Rosalina101011 and EVERYONE on this site for not reading her posting and misgendered her. I am absolutely ashamed and embarrassed. She is a very beautiful woman and I will never be anywhere near as beautiful. How she can be misgendered is totally beyond me (unless like me you misread the post which I did as I was being interrupted at the time I read the post.  Believe me Rosalina that I meant to?assure you not make fun and I pray I haven't done any more damage. I have suffered with GD my entire life of 68 years and I never want to make it worse. I know how it feels. I am not even to a point where I might even not get clocked and I can't imagine your suffering. Please please please accept my apology.

      I'm beginning to feel like I'm trying to solve a mystery.  Looking for clues in my memory.  Looking up information to try to put those clues together.  Possibly even following false leads or red herrings. I am not someone who has always felt that I was misgendered.  I have never felt that I was really female.  I have never felt that I had to transition.  This questioning is something new in my life that I'm unsure is real.  I can look back and see clues pointing towards being transgender but is that enough. The way I've always handled new interests such as hobbies and skill was to find as much information as I could about it, then find other peoples writing about it.  Basically do a lot of research until I felt I had a good handle on what I was getting into.  Then I would go at it whole hog jumping in feet first.  Usually after being involved in whatever the interest was for three years or so I would lose interest and move on to something else. Is that what I'm doing here?  Am I just obsessing about something that interests me?  If I make a decision will I change my mind a few years down the road? Lyla

      Sure, but that only works if you have actual cleavage. Show off. 😜   Hugs!
    • Jandi
      Yes.  My experience has been better than expected as well.
    • Astrid
      I'm happy to report that Jani is spot on.  Our imagination conjurs up all sorts of obstacles that rarely appear.    Best of luck and hugs,    Astrid
