November 7, 2021, back to work another wedding show for my friend. This time I took full advantage of the MUAs there and got a makeover. Now I caution you, some of these images are graphic, so you may wish to turn from the screen!
This is yours truly throughout the process:
That’s me and Alyssa on the left and me and the Perfect Veil crew enjoying cocktails afterward! She did tell me I had great skin (my nightly moisturizing is working!) and that my brows had a perfect arch (my electrolysis and grooming doing the trick!).
It was a very long and wonderful day for me. I was literally gone from home almost exactly 12 hours. I arrived in the morning and Alyssa spent close to an hour (or so it seemed) on me. I cannot thank her enough, it was wonderful and she was an absolute doll! How lucky am I?
Then I basically worked the show. I generally just walk around, smiling, making sure the vendors are getting what they need, making friends. I then act as the screen between the patrons that inevitably arrive early and the show as last minutes touches are completed.
I try to greet every bride, making them feel special (and making me feel feminine). For me, it is just a thrill and so very enjoyable! How lucky am I?
The space is spectacular and is where I will be participating in a bridal photo shoot for the magazine! So I was scoping out ideas for photos. My dear friend Lissa was preparing her models for the fashion show, so I worked her booth for a while. That, for me, another treat! I love Lissa, I love dresses, I love talking with brides. How lucky am I?
In one of my wonderful moments I ask you to think back to an improv jam I talked about a few months back. That was in Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood. Fast forward to this date, in downtown Canton, well over an hour away and one of the ladies I jammed with comes up to say hello to me! She remembered me. She is getting married very soon. That was really cool.
My dress was super cute and comfortable and I just glided around all afternoon. We then found a rare open restaurant afterward and me and the MUAs had dinner and drinks. I was just one of the girls? How lucky am I?
This is a picture from the previous show taken by the photographer. I just love it!!
How lucky am I?
You look fantastic, girl you are living the life!
Thank you Dear!!
You look so radiant and happy. Who wouldn’t be in that environment?
Yeah, I was kinda happy…….
You are very lucky! However I think you had a big hand in creating your luck!! Well done 🙂
Certainly I was, but to keep meeting the angels that I do, that is a very fortunate circumstance! Thank you my dear!!
You look great, Kandi. Love to read about your experiences.
Then I’ll keep having them!!
Thank you Amy!!
I’m sorry Kandi but I don’t believe in luck.
Your wonderful and amazing circumstances are a direct result of you being friendly, confident, funny, talkative, beautiful, respectful, kind, giving, resourceful, pretty, adventurous and joyful. That’s not luck; you are a very special person.
While I agree, I could be all of those and not meet the people I have met. Someone somewhere is watching out for me.
Thanks my friend!!
Kandi you indeed have arrived as a great an wonderful representative of the trans community
And this being trans awareness week I want to thank you for being such a great ambassador for all the girls here and yes even those who are F t M.
I’m not sure many of the trans men read this blog but still you are such a great example of what is possible if we just get out there and be ourselves
Hugs my friend
Love ya Rach
Meant a lot, Rach!
