What Are the Things to Do When Crossdressing Alone?
Crossdressing is a personal hobby for most. However, there are few who openly do it. Public crossdressing, for some, helps them to explore crossdressing further and makes their experience more fun and exciting. On the other hand, most like to do private crossdressing on their alone time.
Crossdressing in private can be liberating and help us develop our personal look, voice, and style. It can be difficult to learn how to dress up and take on a female persona, but it is essential if we want to crossdress in a public environment one day in the future. Learning how to walk and talk in a feminine manner can be very difficult and yet, its one of the most important parts of crossdressing. The best way to learn is to practice in private.
When we’re alone during crossdressing, it is a great time to work on our presentation. We can try out new ways to wear our wig, stockings, and heels. We can also try looking at ourselves in the mirror from various angles and decide which angles we like for a photoshoot. When we have some alone time for crossdressing, we can also practice walking in heels, or perhaps add to our wardrob collection. Let’s go ahead and discuss things in depth about what a crossdresser can do alone while having fun at the same time.
1. Mix and match outfits, plan your outfit
What’s the most remarkable thing about crossdressing alone? We can do anything we want! The world is our oyster! And, oh, the fashions we can wear and the fantasies we can make into realities are endless. We do not just throw a bunch of ingredients into the bowl at random and pray it turns out, right? We measure, mix, take things out, and put other stuff in. Experimenting with our wardrobe is also the same.
And that’s ok! We need to get in there and test drive those outfits. Planning an outfit requires time and effort. In order to find the best ensemble possible, it helps to get into our closet and play around with different factors in order to figure out what works together. I like doing this in the evening after work or on the weekends when I have some free time. It can be fun discovering a new outfit idea, maybe combining two completely different sets of clothing that generally go together in a completely different way. Creating outfits that gets us noticed, feels comfortable yet sophisticated can require imagination.
Matching patterns and prints is a skill that takes some effort to develop. A small tip to better combine pieces is to think of striped or animal print designs like solid colors. Also, consider putting together outfits with similar tones, like mixing warm and cool colors, for example. It’s easier when we include elements from clothes that we already have in our wardrobe. There’s no shame in incorporating some specific articles of clothing such as denim into our outfits if it happens to be something that we love, especially because denim has the ability to appear very put-together even when worn casually, which makes it one of the most versatile pieces in fashion!
2. Learn different makeup tricks
Makeup is an art form in the purest sense. From the right products to creating the right proportions, it can be highly technical! That’s why you need simple tips and tricks to guide you along your makeup journey. We can save ourselves some time and frustration by learning how to create bold eye looks, how to make lipstick stay on longer, or even master contouring basics with these great life hacks below! Different makeup techniques can be used for our different moods and occasions. It’s important to know how to apply our makeup in a way that makes us feel confident and beautiful! Whether that’s for a date, work, or just a night out, highlighting exactly what we want others to see is essential!
Applying mascara can apparently be difficult. Every crossdresser has experienced the peril of finishing the eye makeup and discovering somehow, we’ve ended up with mascara on our lids. If you’re sick of accidentally putting your mascara all over your face, try this simple trick to fix it. All you need is a ¼ teaspoon or small spoon from your kitchen based on how much mascara you use.
When you apply mascara, place the back of the spoon under the lash line so excess product or residues end up on the back of the spoon instead of on your face. This hack works like a charm! This trick can also be used when creating ultra-sleek cat-eye or feline flicks. Start by drawing a very straight line with some black-colored eyeliner along the outer corner of your eye. Next up, take your tape (or fold an old spoon to do the trick) and place it on the edge of your lash line in order to mimic its curve.
When it comes to our lips, there are few tips to create a lovely and natural look. One hack can be to make our lipstick last long and kissable. Rather than reapplying lipstick throughout the course of our day, we can extend its wear by placing a tissue over our lips and dusting on some translucent powder before locking in the color with a dab of clear gloss. This simple technique will help keep the color looking fresh.
3. Practice posing on the camera
Taking pictures of ourselves is a lot of fun, but it can be a little nerve-wracking if we’re not used to being in front of camera. Keeping our composure is important, of course, as well as staying relaxed. All these are feminine mannerisms we must adapt to smoothen our crossdressing. To make sure we look as good, we can start with good lighting and make sure our hair is fixed, and our clothes too. Whether we’re taking selfies or trying to capture a critical moment, it’s always a good idea to put some thought into our hair and clothing. Try different poses, but don’t be afraid to feel silly. It’s the only way you will learn what works for you.
To relieve the pressure of camera-shyness, it’s probably wise to practice different kinds of poses in front of a mirror (or even ask those close to you for help!). Think of your posture as an artistic work of its own. Try to move gracefully and slowly, rather than rigidly and swiftly; lean forward from your waist for each photo, so you still have space in the picture instead of standing straight and blocking everything or smiling too much. It’s best to relax to feel at ease with one’s pose.
4. Practice walking in heels
According to the saying ‘good shoes take you to good places,’ when it comes to footwear for crossdressers, our shoes don’t just complement our outfit but actually complete it. We can tell a lot about ourselves from our choices in shoes – especially sandals with heels. A great way to improve your confidence, walk in heels. Walk around the house in them and keep practicing until it feels natural to you. Take it to the next level like out around town or at the mall if you feel much more confident. Check at your local thrift store or online crossdresser stores if you don’t have any heels. You can find heels for cheap, even pairs that have hardly been worn.
When practicing how to walk in heels, the most important thing is to learn how to walk heel-to-toe. The heel should be placed first, then your toes; this gives you better balance and prevents straining your ankles. Remember that you might have to take slightly smaller steps in heels than you do with runners. This is because our bodies are accustomed to walking flat-footed. It’s also good to imagine walking in a straight line. I recommend wearing documented heels that fit well until they properly work like a second skin so they don’t hurt any part of your foot which could ultimately leave it bruised and swollen.
5. Go out to shop for clothes
Going out and shopping for clothes is fun and a great way to treat ourselves. We’re can to go out and splurge on something nice every once in a while! Whether it be clothes or cosmetics, it’s important to remember that we deserve to look our best. Plus, everyone loves shopping for clothes! I’m a sucker for shopping for clothes online, but that’s not the only way to find something you like. You can visit a store, attend a fashion show, or shop in a mall. I always find myself shopping for clothes whenever I’m having some me-time, or I feel like I’m lacking any kind of motivation.
Shopping is like a rehearsal for a big event. By preparing in advance, we improve our skills through the use of mental imagery, essentially going over the course in our minds and visualizing how we’ll be able to use the products. Just like we need to eat and drink to live, we need clothes to protect our bodies and a sense of style for personal satisfaction.
This is the joy we experience from crossdressing. From the most basic polyester blouse to the most exquisite couture, clothes are an extension of who we are and how we see ourselves. Finding the right clothes and accessories empowers us to express our individuality and gives us a boost of creativity and aesthetics.
It’s very important to take some time for ourselves to just relax and enjoy our own company. It can be hard to get used to it at first, especially if we had a busy lifestyle before it. It takes time to get used to, but it’s important to do so. Do these to have a healthy mind and get the best out of your crossdressing.
