I originally disregarded this photo for a variety of reasons that have now become less important because I have evolved a bit my thinking on why I post photos of myself dressed as a woman. The photo was taken in 2017 during a session with Elizabeth Taylor.
First, I am a man and happily so. Second, I am a man who crossdresses on rare occasions. I do my best to look female, but recognize there are limits to this illusion. The limits are most apparent when you see me in person, because I select the photos that come closest to achieving the illusion and discard all others. Still, in many photos, you can tell I am a man.
In the past, this would really bug me because that presumably meant my ability to achieve the desired illusion failed. But now, I am less concerned about that. If my objective is to produce art, and the result looks aesthetically pleasing and dignifies the superficial aspect of femininity as it is perceived in Western culture, then I am good with that.
Here, we clearly see a crossdresser. I like the vibe my pose imparts. I’m not terribly clever here; this is the result of a photographer trying new things with a malleable subject, though there are limits to what I will do. As I recall, we had fun mussing up my hair to create a kind of tussled, unkempt look 😀
Dress: Eliza J; Shoes: Bandalino; Hosiery: Gabrialla
This is so many different things to each and every one of us. I love the contrast of Alex to Cristy to me to Amanda to Fiona to…….you. Be you, whatever you that makes you happy.
Oh yeah, this makes me happy too!!
