Keep ’em peeled

Police 5 [cue Mr Taylor’s voice over] Monday, 20th March in Nottingham. Where you in the vicinity of Boots the Chemist? Perhaps somewhere near the make-up counter? Did you see a young man in motor bike gear approach the No. 7 counter? Shamelessly he asked the young lady assistant for some help in buying new foundation. Not only did the young rascal engage in polite conversation, but he paid for the goods promptly and politely. If you saw him, call Trans-Spotters now. Remember, you could get a Community Action bonus. Slaptastic Yeah, I finally get around to buying some new slap and yes, I was very nervous. It’s odd really. It’s one thing to walk around a shopping centre dressed […]

Group socials and fashion

Chams Last week’s Chameleons was pretty good. There was a quiz, which to be honest, was rather tricky. Still, better to be challenged than to breeze through it eh? 🙂 That’s it for the next two weeks or so for me. The group move down to Derby and the next Leicester gig isn’t until next month. On the plus side, it does mean I can kick back on Thursdays/Saturday and there’s no mad rush around the house to get dolled up… only to un-doll yourself at 11…. and on a school night too. Adults eh? 🙂 Roses I spoke with one of the Admins the other night who explained in great depth some of the issues the forum faces. It […]

How time flies….

Almost Like Clockwork Firstly, thanks for the kind words. My apologies for not making things crystal clearn. So much for the software author job eh? 🙂 I guess I better re do the make-up chapter in A Dummy’s Guide to Crossdressing. Right… Stage 4. Close your eyes and imagine there’s a clock face over your right eye. The outside point (the bit closet to your ear) of the right eye will be 9 o’clock, the inner corner (near your nose) is 3 o’clock. When adding in the shading – wow, didn’t that sound technical? – you want to colour in (!!) between 9 and 10. When it comes to your left eye, this swaps around. Nine o’clock is your inner […]

The Eyes Have It

Okay, Lizz, you did ask and I’m (foolishly) going to share what H. told me the other night about eye make-up. Well here goes – but I cannot be held accountable for the effects. By the way, any fashionistas reading this? Stop reading now! 🙂 Are we ready? It’s time for Listen and Learn With Lynn. Stop that sniggering at the back! Equipment A good light source. A mirror (preferably not hand held). Three shades of eye shadow (3 browns?) A small brush – probably about the size of your little finger. A smaller brush (!!) – hopefully angled slightly. Dark eye pencil – soft tipped is easier. Mascara Plenty of make-up removal tissues / cleanser to remove and restart […]

Conversations

Talking shop Widow Twanky has trained you well, but now, I am the master. Last Friday P. and I went out for a meal at a posh local resturant. If it’s the midlands, posh means they put down fresh straw. But, hey, it was good enough for the Messiah, it’s good enough for us. 🙂 It was a great night out. The company was excellent (her, not me!) and it was interesting to see what the other diners were up to. One of the high points for me was P. and I had a conversation about make-up and how you do it. Truth be told, it wasn’t initiated by me and I learned (learnt?) a lot. I now realise I’ve […]
