Picture from first visit
In two years I have grown tremendously. While I still tremble every time I walk out the door, at least I get OUT that door. I have spent time and money shaping my outside to look as feminine as I can. I have made friends (and apparently an enemy but no one's perfect.) So, after 2 years I returned to Karen.
I really meant to get back sooner! Honest! It's a LONG trip though!
So I was 1/2 hour late due to traffic. This time I brought my hips, my own corset and my boobs. ;) It didn't take me long to get ready, and Karen decided on a short stretchy skirt and nice top, tights and slingbacks. We tried a few wigs, and started with this one:
Then this one:
I'm partial to the blond myself. I was loving that skirt so we tried a different top:
Then a different outfit:
So Ok, I could post pics all day and that's what Flickr is for. Right?
It was a dream and the four hours flew by. Karen said that I was so different, that when I was dressed I "came alive."
I came alive.
Is it because being Sophie IS becoming my life? That without "her" my life would just be drab monotony? Or worse?
Of course, being a woman isn't all just playing dress up. Duh. And to get there is an incredibly hard road. Like many who walk this road, I have many hard decisions to make. I am Sophie and she is me.
It's the "she" part that makes it worthwhile and so so hard. Now I must wait another two weeks to dress as Sophie again. Two long, cold weeks.
I can't wait!
When I left Karen's I bought an anklet. And that black skirt. I loved it. And every woman needs that one short black skirt, doesn't she? ;)
PS: I'll be posting the pics at my flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lori_anne2008/
PS2: I will be presenting at the Keystone Conference! More as this develops!
