Dress in Drag for Halloween: I Became a Man

Friends did not recognize me when I made my temporary transformation from a curvy female who stands not even at 5 feet to a man of a very short stature. The clothing is only part of it. You can wear most anything: suits, sweatshirts, sweaters and slacks. The makeup is a little more tricky. This is how I accomplished the task without using any other enhancements (no hair pieces to make beards or mustaches.) My hair is in cornrows (I don’t much like cold and wear a lot of hats.) The makeup I used is nothing special, just a black eyeshadow (to match my hair color) and skin-tone powder. Anyone with a lighter hair color should try a dark brown, with a red tone for a more red-headed look.

And yes, those are my natural side-burns so don’t talk badly about me. 🙂

Probably the shortest man you will ever see. But in this disguise, many people did not recognize me. But take note, this makeup look is not waterproof so don’t go twerking in the rain or anything like that.

I think I’d like to recreate this look with actual hair. I’ve been practicing with blending wigs, which, from what I’ve seen on Youtube videos, is more or less the same process for blending facial hair pieces. Still not binding my chest though. Maybe if I performed in drag again, I would.
