crossdressing event of the year

The local crossdressing event of the year, my support group's annual banquet, will be held this Saturday evening. In the recent past, we have had 60-70 crossdressers, friends, and supporters in attendance, dressed to kill in evening gowns and cocktail dresses. The evening usually begins with a cocktail hour, followed by a sit-down dinner, an after-dinner speaker, an awards ceremony, live entertainment, and dancing with a DJ spinning the CDs.

I have performed a few times in the past and will lipsync one song this year. I have been practicing for weeks and look forward to my performance.

I happened to catch The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert last night. It was the first time I had seen that film from beginning to end and I got a couple of ideas from the lipsyncing performances in the film to add to my act on Saturday.

My outfit is all picked out and ready to wear: the blue cocktail dress I wore to the Avon representative Christmas party. I am 99% sure that no one who attended the Christmas party (besides me) will be attending my support group's banquet, so my outfit will be brand new to all onlookers.

I do plan to wear more comfortable shoes. The pair I wore to the Christmas party were not very comfortable and if I wear them Saturday, I will be hobbled by the time I am supposed to perform my lipsync act. So, I will wear an old pair of black strappy 4-inch high heel pumps that are oh-so-comfortable. The are sexy looking shoes that I will glam up with rhinestone clip-ons.

The only thing I have to get are some false eyelashes and some glam eyeshadow (just clipped a Max Factor 2-for-1 coupon from today's newspaper - good timing).

I think I will really enjoy this year's banquet. I was chairlady for the past three banquets and it was a real job running the affair. This year, someone else is chairlady, so I will be able to relax, have fun, and enjoy the whole evening!
