Resizing Photos - How I do it

I'm a complete klutz on some computer stuff and have always found resizing photos difficult and fiddly. The way I do it isn't pretty and would make an IT geek weep, but it works for me..... I have Picasa installed, (free download from Google). As well as basic photo editing, it will also reduce pics to an emailable size, (usually 49-52kb) which load easily on this site and others. Open the photo in Picasa, crop/edit/adjust if you want to, click email button at bottom. Your email progra…

Going Out

OK, it was only a quick wander around the retail park down the road but it felt fab! Skinny jeans, warm coat, face full of slap, hair wafting around in the breeze. No-one seemed to notice me or, if they did, they didn't give a toss. Apologies to all you seasoned hands - this is still a novelty for me. Stopped short of taking the heels out for a spin though - still a little wobbly. And does anyone drive in the things? xSib

I remember

I have to be a round 16 years old when my auntie caught me wearing one of her dresses I was so embarrassed I didn't know what to do

you're not alone

okay I really didn't understand why I felt this way and had these desires in that I wanted to dress like this so I feel weird like something was wrong for so long but after talking to one of my CD sisters and she's related to me and I don't feel so weird anymore I feel like I don't know like its okay it might not be accepted by some people but I know is people out there that will accept me like this .we need to connect with one another buy cell phones Skype any means necessar…

Crossdresser Anonymous

Can't be bothered?

It's a weird thing - I have an unexpected opportunity; at home this afternoon, house to myself. This morning, when I found out this would be case, my mind is going into overdrive. Try out the new blue nail varnish, get out the top I haven't worn yet, take some piccies, maybe even venture down to the retail park and just do a bit of window shopping, heels clicking away. But now I have the time, I find I just don't feel like it and when its like that, that's when I get nail var…

Work Boring but stylish lol

I consider myself very lucky with my job I don't get to wear a 3 piece skirt suit with sensible heels ala office chique but I do get to wear skinny jeans My Little Miss Bad Tshirts and New Rock boots throw in a few goth accessories and my really long Hair and it's almost fun to be at work lol I have been known to turn up in a skirt a few times though Like I said I'm very lucky The people I work with find it mildly amusing and are overall quite accepting of my quirks it's half…

so I'm a little Goth Rock chick

I suppose like every other crossdress story mine started a long time ago, I was always jealous of the girls at school and the freedom they had to look so good Over the years I have experimented with alsorts of looks and outfits but it was my passion for heavy loud live music The atmosphere the power and the energy from rock music that steered me towards self discovery I'm starting to finally feel happy about myself Im not sure about those around me but I can't really make them happy by…

My Photo Inspiration

In guy mode, I'll run a mile from a camera. Siobhan loves having her picture taken. Weird, or what? I just like chronicling my efforts and, I guess, expressing the other side of me. I probably won't use the black wig again, so just snapped a few to remind myself why I'm a redhead by choice. Younger girls won't remember, but there was once a time when photos involved time, expense and a trip to the chemist. It's so easy now to play around and just have fun. xSiobhan

Staying in Control

Everyone I've come across on here has been really nice - not just those friends I've carried over from Cross Dressing Zone, but the other lovely girls I've met from elsewhere. But that doesn't stop me taking the same precautions I've always taken with Siobhan; 1) I'm deliberately vague about where I live - London's a big place and I may or may not live actually in Ealing, maybe just nearby. 2) My feminine name has no connection with my guy name. 3) Siobhan'…

Shameless self-promotion

Some of you may know I write a blog over at Wordpress. It's nothing earth-shattering - I just witter on about clothes, make-up, best-forgotten music and telly, and more or less anything else. In case you're wondering, when I picked my fem name, (I just liked Siobhan, it suited me as a redhead, and had no history or baggage attached), I also chose a surname, mainly to help separate the two sides of me. 'Hapgood' came off a street name close to where I live and refers to Eddie…

Fire and Ice

Time is ephemeral slipping by sweetly to the abyss. The hurt we feel now will pass as everything does. Yes, my dear, even this. When we reach the harbour at life’s end and the sea drifts in the stanzas of my rhyme, The storms we weathered will be but misty-eyed memories drifting in time. Fire and ice; you fan the flames and I slide on the ice, Roll with the blows, go with the flow; that is my advice. The misty moon lights up the clouds scudding across the inky sky. As we travel this gravelled…

Legs

Ok, I tried this yesterday and it disappeared... So there we are waiting for the crossing lights to change. "Did you notice that car that just went past?" She asked. "No," I replied. "The driver was checking out your legs." I was wearing the little red dress with a short coat, so the legs were on display. Now that my attention had been drawn to it, I did mention when we got back from our short shopping trip that I had noticed another guy eyeing up the pins - and he…

Oh, Well...

Things are looking up a bit from a few days ago. I'm meeting up with my friend on Friday, so get to dress again. Life seems to be a bit of a roller-coaster at the moment. The more I dress, the more I want to stay that way. Transitioning is a goal that is unreachable for me as I have too much to lose, but the desire is strong.
