I never looked this rough in drag before, lol. Let's face it, we've all seen a variation on this pose somewhere along the line! Shot at boyfriend's place in a real La-Z-Boy. Hairspray used on face to hold stubble in place, boobs bound down with an Ace bandage and yes, I am 'packing'.

Aw shucks everyone, thanks for the great comments - and I think Bob's right, many people missed this because I did go straight for full drag as opposed to making it more obvious.

Maybe next time I'll do 'turnaround' drag...that's when I do FEMALE drag! Even then I confuse people, LOL!

As for the crotch-in-yer-face perspective, well, I knew it might offend some. Oh well. But let's face it, many guys prize what's in their pants above all else, and one of the first things a drag king has to learn is how to change your body language so you are convincing as a man.

Many a time I took the Skytrain (in Vancouver) home from a show, very late at night, through very bad neighbourhoods - and for if nothing more than safety's sake, be very sure I was exuding a strong male vibe. I never had a problem.

Oh yeah...I realize now that I look like I'm sleeping. I'm actually belching. Next time I better put a *burp* in the title. :-)

You know Susan, I think the reason your score was so bad was because the cross-dress was so good. You did such a good job that no one caught on.

I'm surprised that more people didn't 'get' this. I loved the humorous perspective. Actually this reminds me a lot of what I did to posthumous for the Indulgence challenge ;-)

Wow you were too good in this one i voted it low because i didnt see the crossdressing. Sorry now that i realise it is you i really like it. It should have scored much higher

Wow...you fooled me!! I thought you were a dude!! nice job!

Heh. You did such a good job selling the idea of this being a guy that you fooled me and a bunch of other folks. Still like the angle, though. :)

I'm missing how this is cross-dressing. It's an interesting angle, though.

How is this cross-dressing? Does have a great point of view though.

Ahaha, you have captured the pure essence of male. For this I congratulate you.

cool shot

Those pants look way to clean for a guy and where's the remote. :)

Good idea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What is this, a dude in dudes' attire? If it's a girl... sorry; if not, the shot doesn't meet the challenge. I don't know what the case is, so I'll have to just give it a "5."

*Updated: You are a woman, and, as such, I like this picture more. Good work.

Not a good camera angle. Should have been up and left about 6 to 8 inches.
03/14/2007 08:36:47 PM
don't see too many from THAT angle!

hahahaha Are you sleeping with your arm in the air?

03/14/2007 12:35:00 PM
intersting crop. would rather see the focus on the face, lighting feels a little flat.

A manly man.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 05:51:28 AM
Yep....typical male posture...except for the delicate hold on the beverage! Men wouldn't care if it spilt!! Unless they were awake and it was beer!

I don't see any crossdressing here. In fact, thsis is something either man or women may wear. I don't like the image much either: cropped too tight at three sides, grayish bw-conversion and the composition is dominated by a big dark surface in front.
03/14/2007 04:37:29 AM
I'm not sure where the cross dressing fits in?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2007 03:36:18 AM
Not too sure about the crop.

With your arm (or whoever's arm that is) it isnt selling your lazy boy afternoon as well as if it were laying down. Does that makes sense? sorry! but i do like the shoot non the less!
