EYE CANDY: MICHELLE
Meet Michelle everyone – isn’t she a doll? Michelle is a new friend of GlamourBoutique.com but we already know we are going to be seeing and hearing a lot of her. A.K.A. Mitchell, she has been crossdressing for about 20 years and has perfected her look by using her skill of photography.
Michelle is very proud of the fact she takes 40 pictures of herself every evening to perfect her image. She has an extensive Art background as a ‘Film’ photographer and has her own Dark Room to perfect her look in print.
How old do you think Michelle is: 40’s, 50’s ? Well we were astounded to hear she is 63 years young – she certainly doesn’t look it and she has a very youthful voice too.
We asked Michelle if she would answer a few Eye Candy questions so that readers could better understand how she arrived to the point where she is with her transformations. What follows is a really interesting commentary that gives clues as to her own journey, her likes and the advice she gives to other crossdressers. Oh, and of course there are more pics to see too.
WHAT’S YOUR FEMME NAME? “My Feminine name is Michelle, as my real name is Mitchell”
WHERE DO YOU LIVE? : “Ohio, Solon Ohio, near Cleveland”
HOW OLD WERE YOU THE FIRST TIME YOU DRESSED? “I was about forty’ish”
WHAT/WHO FIRST INFLUENCED YOU TO DRESS? “Actually myself, reason: My wife was very pretty, I always made her up when we went out, she was sexy, but never wanted to exploit it for me. I would buy her a sexy dress, we would go out to like, Friday’s , and she would not go in, because she thought she was to dressy. She wouldn’t even wear false eyelashes. So if you got it, then flaunt it. I surprised her one Sat. night dressed as a sex feign, I made dinner at home, watched a movie, got drunk, had SEX as a woman. We did this for about five years every Sat. night. Guess she didn’t mind.”
WHICH FAMOUS FEMALES INSPIRE/INFLUENCE YOU NOW? “None, I’m my own Gurl.”
DESCRIBE YOUR ‘LOOK’? “SEXY, SEXY , Don’t you think so? Whether or not some may not think so, but to me, I think it is so sexy when women smoke cigarettes. So i follow suit. My father died when I was 5 of a heart attack, and my mother raised me. When she smoked, she just didn’t just smoke, she smoked sexy all the time, as it was popular at the time to smoke. ( such as the movies). At the time I didn’t think it was sexy at the time until my crossdressing as it was embedded in my brain.”
DO YOU STAY IN DRESSED OR GO OUT? “Been to a lot of Halloween Parties and won first prize many times. Don’t go out dressed, since the only bars to go to close by are Gay bars, and I’m heterosexual.”
WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPIEST WHEN YOU DRESS? “After I take my pictures, and the next day when I put them in the computer to view, and find a few and I say WOW !, I’m proud of myself. A few people have said on line, that I look absolutely gorgeous, that makes me feel good, and I accomplished my goal. Have you seen any body at 63 look this good?”
ANY ADVICE FOR NEW CROSSDRESSER? “Get a half-way decent digital camera, like a Nikon Coolpix digital camera, which has a remote shutter release. Take lots of pictures of your self, with different wigs and dresses. Try different things I even used clown makeup for my eyes, that was in a crayon form, which was a very bright color. I even used two wigs on each other, such as blond over a light red wig for effects. Ive made my own jewelry and tried different types of make-up. By taking pictures of yourself, you can see what looks good, and what looks bad. I’m a Semi professional film photographer with a darkroom. Don’t use a flash, as it does not look real. Spot lights are better.”
A BIG thank-you to Michelle for sharing her answers and especially her pics. We think we may well see her featured in the new ‘Cougars’ category in the 2012 Glamour Girl Competition starting late January.
