Backyard BBQ & Band Birthday Bash with Beth & Giselle!

Summer celebration! Beth’s business turns 5… and Giselle’s turning 65! We’re hosting a Backyard BBQ & Band Birthday Bash at our home and studio the evening of Saturday, June 30.

  • Live Music by Delta 88 now featuring Giselle Donnelly as lead singer and guitarist on a cool stage. Denis will be on bass with Eric on drums.
  • Catering by The Smoking Swine of Baltimore with their food truck. Menu includes pulled pork, brisket, ribs, mac & cheese, cucumber salad, coleslaw, and baked beans!
  • Tent to provide shade and protection from rain
  • Beverages by Elizabeth Taylor of Makeovers with Elizabeth Taylor

Who: Friends, neighbors, clients, and coworkers of Beth and Giselle

When: Saturday, June 30, 2018 from 5 – 10 pm

Where: Beth’s makeover studio and home in Cabin John, MD. Address provided to those who RSVP. Park on the street. Parking is free and unlimited though streets are narrow. Please do not block driveways or fire hydrants.

RSVP: Please RSVP on Meetup or to me directly at Elizabeth.taylor.makeover@gmail.com if you’re not on Meetup. This is a catered event so we need a headcount to ensure plenty of food and drink for all. 🙂

What to bring: Bring your picnic blanket and beach chair, and prepare for a relaxing summer evening with friends. Event will be held rain or shine. We will have a tent available as a rain and shade shelter.

What to wear: Picnic clothes! Jean shorts, tank top, and sandals would fit right in. I advise against spiky heels as the ground is soft. We are inviting the neighbors, family, and Giselle’s coworkers so no fetish attire, please.

To being fabulous!

Allison

Allison and I had a ball at this photoshoot. We originally planned on an outdoor steampunk-themed shoot on the lake, but the weather just didn’t cooperate. So we took some of our favorite props—a corset, bustle skirt, choker, and peacock feathers and made a day of it inside.

Model: Allison
MUA & Photographer: Elizabeth Anne Taylor

Vivian Davis, Vinyl, and the Beat Generation

Vivian Davis, Vinyl, and the Beat Generation

Vivian Davis loves the 1950s Beat Movement aesthetic, often characterized by berets, bongos, vinyl records, and books that challenged publishing norms of the time.

Vivian requested smokey eyes with strong eyeliner wings and a soft, pink nude lip. To keep the feel of the 1950s, we shot Vivian in black and white and pumped up the contrast in the resulting images. Vivian and her wife, Jes, rounded out the shoot cuddling together while listening to vinyl.

Models: Vivian Davis and Jes
Makeup Artistry for Vivian: Elizabeth Anne Taylor
Photographer: Elizabeth Anne Taylor

Do you have a hobby or special interest that you’d like to incorporate into your shoot? Bring props like Vivian did and make your photo shoot uniquely your own. Check out my makeover menu and book online here.

Live full-time for 3-days in a row with this Weekender package, which includes three 10-hour days for the price of three 8-hour days.

You can borrow wardrobe items for your consecutive 3-day experience and return them the final night or the next morning.

I recommend hotel accommodations in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia, or Bethesda, Maryland.

A Trans Love Story—Sneak Preview of “The Makeover”

A Trans Love Story—Sneak Preview of “The Makeover”
Beth and Giselle kiss

Beth and Giselle kiss at the Graffiti Warehouse in Baltimore.

Giselle and I would LOVE for you to join us for a cocktail party, film screening, discussion, and fundraiser for our filmmakers and dear friends, Jane Pittman and Sarah Park. Over the past three years, Jane and Sarah have documented how Giselle and I have evolved — “been transformed,” so to speak — and grown together. The result, entitled “The Makeover,” is all but complete and ready for the upcoming film festival circuit. After the screening, Jane, Sarah, Giselle, and I will talk about the making of the film. Of course, we will provide plenty of delicious wine and some finger foods since this is a cocktail party after all. 🙂

We’re very proud of the film, not just because it captures our experience but because we think our love may resonate with many across our community, including our families and friends. We look forward to sharing our story with you, and hope you’ll help Jane and Sarah put the finishing touches on a wonderful documentary.

Event link on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/154018035254035/

When & Where: Saturday, January 27 from 6-11 p.m. at my studio in Cabin John, MD inside the I-495 beltway near Washington, DC

RSVP at either event link or by email at elizabeth.taylor.makeover@gmail.com

• Film Synopsis

Beth and Tom head to dinner gala

Beth and Tom head to a dinner gala.

“The Makeover” is a distinctly traditional love story set in a decidedly non-traditional milieu of BDSM and shifting gender. Tom is an aging conservative policy wonk, in private known as Jizzelle la Creme. He meets Elizabeth Taylor, once a nuclear power instructor with the US Navy but now a photographer and make-up artist who sees hundreds of trans clients per year. Together this unlikely couple transform one another into what they most want to be.

• Donation Options

Jane and Sarah will be accepting cash donations, checks (perfect if you’d like a tax-deductible gift to charity), and GoFundMe for credit cards. They will use the funds to complete the film music scoring, final editing, and film marketing and distribution. Donate Anytime at GoFundMe

We love our lives! To being fabulous, everyone!
