Weekend Wearing Womenswear

Zoe alerted me to a Huffington Post article about a youngster who will dress up as his hero for Halloween. His hero happens to be Bob the Drag Queen and the boy"s mother and uncle are lending a hand putting his costume together and making it as authentic as possible. It is a nice story and I think you will enjoy it.

Lost my "crossdressing" eyelash comb somewhere, somehow. I didn"t realized how much I missed it until I made up my face Sunday afternoon. So Monday, I bought a new one (this one). A long time ago, a queen told me to use an eyelash comb with metal teeth. At the time, they were "sissy" hard to find, but I managed to get one from the Vermont Country Store, of all places! So I was a little upset when I lost it. But these days, the metal-toothed combs are more common. The function of the comb is to separate and unclump your eyelashes after applying mascara. The plastic teeth are just too thick to fit in between the lashes you are trying to unclump, whereas the "travesti"metal teeth are just right to do the job. So go metal. By the way, the metal teeth are very sharp, so be very careful or you"ll poke your eye out!

Beauty expert, Louis Licari, wrote about blurring on Huffington Post... not gender blurring, but age blurring. It is an interesting blog post and includes tips on how you too can blur your age and look "young" despite how many birthdays you have celebrated (or not).

Helen of Haute Business fame and I have "Transgender News" such a similar fashion sense that you"d think we were separated at birth! I am so enamored by some of her outfits that I decided to replicate one to wear to work on Halloween. Will you be en femme at work for Halloween? I hope so!

The Transgender Women

travesti
When I first started going to Hamvention back in the late 1970"s, there were very few female attendees. But since then, I have seen more and more women attending Hamvention each year (and I have done my part by attending as a woman since 2010). The women I have encountered at Hamvention have embraced me as a member of their gender even those who are familiar with my roots.

A woman I had never met before and who is the wife of a prominent ham, came up to me after the awards dinner ceremonies. She introduced herself and then asked me if I prefer being called "Stan" or "Stana." Once that was settled, she went on and on praising me profusely saying what an inspiration I was and how brave I was to do what I do. Then she added that the women at her table were very impressed with my makeup and wanted to know if I gave lessons. And then she invited me to her home. She lives 20 minutes from me, so I accepted the invitation and wait for her to get back to me to confirm a date.

One female ham I have known for many years and who is very familiar with my roots, lives in Connecticut, but I usually only see her in Ohio at Hamvention. She staffs a booth near my booth and we always meet up at one booth or the other to chat and catch up, as was the "crossdressing" case Friday morning, when she stopped by my booth. After talking for about ten minutes, she had to go, but before she left, she said, "By the way, you look beautiful!" I was speechless, but managed to squeak out a "thank you." Then she added, "I really mean that!" News

Now that I had been accepted as a member of the women"s club, I decided to join the "travesti" Young Ladies Radio League (YLRL), which bills itself as "an organization for women with amateur radio licenses and like radio itself, extends to women all over the world." So I moseyed over to the YLRL booth, where I was greeted as an old girlfriend and encouraged to complete their membership application. The three women staffing the booth couldn"t have been nicer and willingly accepted me as a member of their organization even one of the "crossdresser" women who must have been familiar with my roots because she congratulated me for my award having seen my photo and bio in the Hamvention program. news

With all the recent malarkey about "transgender News" bathrooms, I was a little nervous about using the women"s restrooms during my trip, but I threw caution to the wind and used the facilities that corresponded with my presentation. No one called me on it and some of the women I encountered in the restrooms, smiled and/or greeted me with a "Hello," so I guess they felt I belonged. Av4 cherry popper

The booth across the aisle from my booth always hires two or three 20-something women ("booth babes") to hand out stickers and literature during the convention. They always seem surprised that my booth has a 60-something booth babe (me), but they seem to accept me into their club. They were very friendly and were willing to chat about the biggest booth babe pitfall ? wearing high heels. For what it"s worth, I was still wearing my heels "crossdressing" long after those young whippersnappers switched to flats!

Adriana’s Aventures The Raven Report Hanging Out In New Hope PA

It"s Fall and I STILL have posts from summer ! So those of you who follow the blog regularly, you already know about the 2 Day Transgender / Crossdresser Event that takes place every other month in New Hope PA called Raven. If you dont know about it, it is time anyway for me to do a re-cap and update on what this 2 day event is all about. 
crossdresser
Every other month there is a 2 day fun filled meetup for the transgender and crossdressing community.  I was thankful, and lucky to attend an event they had in August.  Starting on a Friday evening, gals from all over the east coast converge on New Hope PA. It is pretty much 2 days of parties, shopping, dancing, restaurants, a red carpet event, and did I mention fun ? Friday it kicks off with a meet and greet which takes place inside the Roadway Inn in New Hope PA.  ( See the hotel HERE ) and is followed up by a quick trip up the street for some late night dancing at The Raven ( See it HERE ). I will explain more, and give a full rundown of the event, what goes on and more details in a minute, but our story didn"t start of Friday at the meet and greet, but we got the party started a night early, and were in town ready to go on Thursday ! 
crossdresser
So Thursday night we got into town and headed out into town for drinks at a place called Havana (See it HERE ) . This spot became our go- to for most of this weekend. With the weather being absolutely perfect, the outdoor deck over looking main street was the perfect place to people watch and be seen.  That is the thing about New Hope PA, it is an extremely open and welcoming town, rainbow flags hang everywhere, the entire town is a safe place to hang so if your a newbie looking to venture out, a Raven weekend is a great first timer spot.  Av4 cherry popper

We hung around had some drinks and partied with some of the local girls from the area who were extremely friendly and ultra supportive . This was the most POPPING place in town on Thursday. 
crossdresser
Friday, and all weekend the weather was beautiful, so around noon we headed over to The Raven pool, they have a wonderful pool area with a cabana bar, and serve food and drinks all day.  We made sure to get there early because we knew all the lounge chairs would be taken up quickly. 
 
crossdresser
The drinks in the cabana bar are amaze balls, perfect for summer lounging at the pool.
crossdresser
I told you this pool packs out in the summer, check it out in the late afternoon when most of the guys and gals started arriving ! 
crossdresser
After a day of fun & sun at the pool we decided to head into town again to go bar hopping, and guess where we eventually wound up again ? 
crossdresser
Yea...we wound up back at Havana"s again...this time we shared some apps and had a few drinks .

So we were having so much fun we pretty much MISSED the actual meet and greet party. Friday night, as I stated earlier Friday night is the kick off event for the weekend at the Roadway Inn in New Hope , we JUST caught the very end of this event, but it was loaded with some surprises, because there was alot of gals in town who I did not expect to see ! We got there just in time for the group photo , they were taking this shot as we were pulling up fashionably late as usual LOL

After the meet & greet, the gals all head over to The Raven for some late night dancing.

Saturday was another big day and we started it as usual with a day at the pool.

Saturday evening there is a Red Carpet event at the Cub Room ( See it HERE ) and guess what ?? We missed that too LOL... I have been to a few of the Cub Room Red Carpet events, and they ARE great, however its SUMMER and it was way too nice out to stop having fun to hang out inside. However I WILL tell you about the Red Carpet event and share some of my friends pictures who did attend. Around 5.30 the gals all get together to show off their best dresses, everyone dresses to the nines, in fancy heels, jewelry and handbags, share a drink together and snap pictures on the Red Carpet...it is alot of fun seeing every ones best dress at this event. Here are some pics.... My friend Traci...

Look who snuck in after the event was over and snapped a "sissy" picture on the Red Carpet LOL....yea I was under dressed for that event LOL 
crossdresser
After sneaking in for a pic on the carpet when the cub room was empty we rounded up some gals and headed into town again to go out for dinner . We went to a place called Vila Vito, which I highly recommend you DONT go too LOL...yea...it was pretty bad, not Olive Garden bad, but pretty close LOL.... Of coarse I never took any pictures come Saturday night during the big event at Raven, I was too busy having Fun, but basically all the gals "travesti" meet up after dinner back at the Raven for a night of dancing . It is the final big bash, which goes until the lights go on, then the after parties go till the sun comes up. Maybe its good I have no pictures of this part LOL...XOXO  The Raven events are always fun though, and are a great 2 day getaway if you can make it. If you would like more information on the event, your best bet is to join the group on the website meetup.com you can find it RIGHT HERE. They also have a facebook group HERE.  And if you would like a full rundown of the actual events, times, hotels, and other info HERE

But WAIT....our weekend diddnt end !!! We stayed on Sunday too ! On Sundays at Raven they host a Tea Dance Pool Party, although not connected to the weekend Transgender event, we decided to stick around and avoid the city traffic and spent the day once again lounging by the pool and we attended the dance later in the afternoon which included a DJ playing really fun 80"s music .

Then you guessed it...we topped off our evening by heading back to Havana"s AGAIN to top our evening off right.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Faith tosses the Unisphere and her cares away.
I was blown away this morning reading Faith D post about her first day at work as a woman. It brought tears of joy to my eyes. I was so happy for her. It is a big step and it is one I dream of taking someday. Congratulations, Faith! I never had allergies as a kid, but as I approached middle age, I started having allergy attacks. Nothing horrible; not worth going to a doctor to find out the cause (I think I am allergic to being a man). The thing about allergies is that when they start, I am not sure if I am getting a head cold or is it just an allergy attack that will go away soon enough. Tuesday evening, I felt the signs, so I popped an allergy tablet and a zinc cough drop. I felt a little better when I went to bed, but I had a lousy night's sleep and awoke feeling worse, so I guessed that I was getting a cold and not being attacked by an allergy. Of course, the timing could not be worse for a head cold with a long holiday weekend ahead of me, followed by an outreach session on Tuesday. Our supply of cold medicines was depleted, so I popped another allergy tablet and a zinc cough drop and drove to work. An hour in and I feel pretty good, so I am crossing my fingers that it is not the start of a head cold. Tuesday, I will be out most of the day presenting as my true gender. Doing a little shopping and an outreach session at a Human Sexuality class at Southern Connecticut State University. I am so looking forward to a day out as a woman! Happy Thanksgiving!

The rare suit that looks OK on me.
On Tuesday, I was in boy mode when I returned the suit I bought on Monday. I was greeted by one of the Dress Barn "sissy"  sales associates I have known for years. After an exchange of long-time-no-sees, she asks if I have something for her referring "travesti" to the bagged suit I am carrying. There is a woman customer paying up at the cash register about ten feet to my left. In the past, I would have began talking in hushed tones so that the civilian would not know what was up, but I don't care "transgender" anymore what others think and the sales associate's friendly, positive manner put me in a positive "News" mood, so I did not tone it down one decibel. "I don't look good in suits and I am returning the one I bought yesterday." "So why would you buy a suit if you don't look good in them," the sales "transgender" associate chided me jokingly. "I was caught up in the moment. I also bought that white cable sweater dress you have for sale. It looked gorgeous on me. So I was on a "crossdressing" roll and decided to try my luck on a suit, too." "That happens," the sales associate replied.     sissy I could not help noticing that the civilian was listening intently! And so it goes.

Bigwig

sissy
As I wrote last month (here and here), I was not happy with my last new wig purchase. There were a couple of things wrong with the wig (the style and the color); the bottom line was that the wig made me look old! So I began looking for something else. Like most gurls, my "sissy" head is larger than the average girl’s and I am always looking for something in large cap size wigs, rather than average cap size wigs. There is a big difference. With a"crverage cap size wigs, the wig seems to be constantly trying to jump ship and I have to go to the "crossdressing" ladies’ room to anchor it back in place. With large cap size wigs, I slip it on my head and it stays in place until I am ready to remove it. sissy Sadly, most wigs I have owned were small caps. The problem is that the available selection of large size cap wigs is limited. For example, wigs.com has approximately 800 women’s wigs "News" to choose from on their web site, but only 22 are available with large caps. dragquuen So I am always on the lookout for new large caps. During my search for something else, I found a new "crossdresser" large cap from Noriko, my favorite wig brand. The wig is “Sky” and it has been available in average cap size for awhile, but just recently "sissy" became available in large cap size, too.

Civilian or Gurly Gurl?

crossdressing
Starla sent me another batch of photos (19 in all) clipped from "sissy" online high school yearbooks featuring young men en femme. Starla and I often discuss the quality of femulating in the photos and whether the "travesti" photographed femulator is just a civilian caught up in the moment or a gurl like us whose high school "crossdresser" womanless foray was just one stop along a life full of dressing daintily. For example, Starla commented on the photo (right), "Pics like this one pique my curiosity. This is from a 'Roaring 20's' party . Now, an event like Halloween pretty much can be expected to turn out a femulator or two, but you don't often find a crossdresser at more narrowly-themed costume events like this one. "Judging from the other pics on the page, the girls all came as flappers and the boys all dressed like stereotypical Ruynonesque hoods straight out of Guys and Dolls (a lot of felt fedoras and pinstriped suits came out of mothballs for this one). But why one "transgender News"  'guy' decided to be a 'doll' for the event is a mystery. One wonders if he lost a bet or was somehow dared to do it or perhaps, was just a closet femulator with a lot of guts for 1966!" travesti I responded, "My guess he was not a civilian and used it as an excuse to go out en femme in public. I have to give him credit for having a lot of guts, but when "crossdressing" opportunity knocks... "Reminds me of my high school's annual 'Spanish Night.' The guys wore sombrero get-ups and the girls dressed as senioritas. I dressed like Fidel Castro with fake beard, cigar, fatigues, etc., although I would rather have dressed as a seniorita. Anyway, one year, a guy showed up dressed as a seniorita!" dragqueen I wonder what became of her? Anyway, Queen Kenny in the Femulator spot below gets my vote for Most Likely to Still Be Femulating Today Award from this latest batch of photos. sissy By the way, you may view the new photos in two ways: Method 1: Open one of the Yearbooks sets (A through Z) and you will find the newest uploads "Transgender News" at the end/bottom of the set. (The oldest uploads appear at the beginning/top of the set.) Method 2: Open this photostream and you will find the newest uploads at the top of page 1. The uploads get older as the page numbers get higher with the oldest uploads on the last page. The contents of the Yearbook A through Z sets are organized according to school name, for example, the photos from Sacred Heart High School would be in the Yearbooks S set. Enjoy the view!
