Lucy sought out a professional business woman look, complete with a business suit, hose, and low pumps that she provided. She asked for natural looking makeup with light brown eyeshadows and a neutral, defined lip. We experimented with wigs, and she decided on the Cameron from Jon Renau for her professional look while enjoying a longer hairpiece for her glam outfits. After photos in the studio, we strolled through the neighborhood and down New Hampshire Avenue taking photos during the hour of magic and as the evening light faded.

Melanie asked for a natural makeup look with neutral, skin-tone eyeshadows and a soft, natural lip color. We used MAC eyeshadows in Brule, Arena, and Texture with a medium brown Kohl eyeliner in Costa Riche on her upper lid. For her lips, we used a MAC Powder Kiss lipstick in Sultriness over a clear lip primer, skipping lip liner in favor of a softer look.
Melanie chose three dresses and wigs from my wardrobe for her main photos. Her hair choices included the Cameron from Rene of Paris, the Jackson from Noriko, and the Robin from Noriko. She wanted a casual, mainstream look for her outing so we switched over to blue jeans, a black blouse, and a black leather jacket paired with black booties and the Cameron bob. We went for a casual walk in downtown Takoma Park, passing guests enjoying restaurant meals outdoors.

Hi ladies! I know you all have been asking for another event so I’m excited to announce that the Bethesdan Hotel has reopened their restaurant and is eager to have us return for our signature Soiree! So assemble your favorite fall outfit (boots anyone?) and join us at our Fall Soiree in bustling downtown Bethesda, Maryland on Saturday, October 15! We will be having dinner at 7 p.m. and hanging out at the bar, lounge, and restaurant areas ’til the bar closes around 11 pm. Crash at the hotel, and be sure to book using our discounted group rate of $119.
At our signature soirees, we invite trans-women, their partners, and friends to socialize, network, and relax. We encourage new girls to come out to help boost their confidence and garner tips from those more experienced. And of course, we love having our regulars come out too!
If you haven’t joined the DC Trans Ladies Meetup group yet, this would be a great time to do so if you are a trans-woman, an MtF crossdresser, or genderfluid! (Men are not accepted as members but are welcome at events as guests of members.) We have active members from their twenties into their seventies, and we’d love to have you join us.
If you’re not feeling ready for girl mode in public, you are still welcome to attend in guy mode. Upon arrival, introduce yourself as a member to the hosts, and we will welcome you warmly. Please consider joining us at the Soiree Dinner in the hotel’s dining room. It is an opportunity to sit with your sisters and get to know them.
The Bethesdan hotel staff is delighted to have us, and to demonstrate their appreciation they’ve set up a special room rate of $119/night and discounted event parking. Visit the Meetup events, above, for the booking link and to check out all the event details.
If you’re looking to get your Soiree makeup professionally applied, I will be offering makeup makeovers at my studio in Takoma Park, MD.
Bring your smartphones and cameras, and take pics to share on our meetup site.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Fall Soiree!
