Someone I am proud to call "friend".

By Nora Simone

Most know I like to change my appearance based on occasion – or just how I feel.

Strangers might not know that. Sometimes I find myself making introductions with someone I met just a few hours previously!

However my best friends reliably spot me in a crowd – regardless of hair, or costume.

How do they do that?

So for fun, here is collection of portraits taken over a long weekend to demonstrate my range.

Sometimes I transform twice in one day: a day look and a very different night look.

Do you think you’d recognize me passing on the street? If so, you must be a friend.

Photos were taken by friends with smartphone cams. Still useful to make the point – right?

PS. This is not a “Which do you like best” question. I like diversity in myself as much as I like diversity in others.

  1. Nora,
    The simple answer is most people who only know you in male mode won’t recognise you because they’re not expecting to see those changes in you . Aren’t women lucky to have those choices . I struggled for a while with thinking I was using dressing as an excuse to venture out in disguise but the truth is being full time I’m actually going out as ME .

    Only this week I went out to a show and saw a ladly I knew many years ago , without thinking I gave her a friendly ” hello ” she replied but with a puzzled look on her face . Later I met her again and talked for a while , I attempted to jog her memory as to who I was but the penny just didn’t drop .
    On another occasion I met a lady who certainly wouldn’t haven’t hugged me in male mode but her comments were , ” Oh my gosh what’s happened to you ? You look wonderful ” , and proceeded to hug me for several minutes .

    To experiment with several looks can be a lot of fun but now I had to find a look I was comfortable with and stick with it as it’s my identity now .
