|Ready for work, Halloween 2013|
As some wisewoman once opined, "Time is of the essence." Since most of us do not normally dress female for work, it is a good idea to plan ahead so that our high heels are not late when they make their first click on the company premises.
So, on the night before:
- Pick out your outfit and have all its parts (including undies, hosiery, jewelry, shoes, outerwear, etc.) out and ready to wear.
- Comb and style your wig so it is ready to crown your head with minimum fuss.
- Set up your makeup mirror and lay out the makeup you plan to use so you won't have to go looking for something missing in the morning.
- Remove all body hair that your outfit will expose.
- Transfer your "papers" from your boy wallet to your girl wallet and pack your handbag including an extra pair of hosiery and extra fake fingernails just in case.
- Set your alarm clock to go off earlier than usual so you will have adequate time to prepare to be a woman (I usually set mine an hour earlier than usual).
On the big day:
- If your outfit includes high heels, take a pair of flats with you, too. They will come in handy (or should I say "footy") if your feet tire from wearing heels all day. Also, if you are not used to driving in heels, wear the flats during your commute.
- Bring a bag of candy to share during your workplace trick or treat.
- If the other girls don't invite you to lunch, go out during your lunch hour and do something outside the workplace as a woman. Go grocery shopping. Go to a sandwich shop. Go to the mall and try on some dresses.
And don't worry about passing ― it's Halloween!
