Our Holiday

Bunny Stana
Halloween is coming soon!

Some people call it the "crossdresser's holiday" because it provides a free pass for crossdressers to dress as women and get away with it.

It is also a cause for celebration for many crossdressers if Halloween was their first time out in public en femme.

Halloween 1969 was my first public appearance as a woman. At that point in time, I had been crossdressing frequently (whenever I was home alone) for about five years and my girl was about to explode if she did not get out.

I assembled a costume that would not be too outrageous, that is, I stuck with male undies instead of borrowing my mother's bra and girdle. But I did borrow my sister's purple sheath dress, black mid-heel Mary-Janes, black tights, beige wool cap and brunette wig. I don't recall if I borrowed makeup or bought my own. In either case, after five years of practice, my makeup skills were probably too good, but I did my best anyway.

I was desperate to go out en femme, but I did not have anyplace to go! Halloween parties were not as prevalent as they are today and I was too young to go bar-hopping, so I borrowed my mother's '65 Dodge and visited a few friends and relatives.

The visits were a blur. But I do remember one aunt dubbing me "Stasha" and I recall regretting that no one took my photograph. But I had the time of my life and ever since, I have tried to celebrate the holiday as a crossdresser should.  

This year, I ordered the parts for my Halloween costume and assuming that the sizes and colors are correct when delivered, I will have a cool costume to wear later this month.

  1. Halloween allows someone to see what it is like to go out in female mode and decide whether or not they want to go further without, hopefully, raising any suspicions

  2. I love that pic of you!

    1. Thank-you! The bunny costume is my favorite.

      When is that bunny costume from? You look entirely femme!

  3. Yes Indeed! Halloween is our 'National Drag Day'! If you cannot go out and party while 'enfemme', at least go out and race your car ;-) Velma

  4. Stana, In your Bunny costume, my Wife says, that w/ those long legs of yours, you could also be a, Rockette

  5. Stana, oh now you have to tell us what your costume will be! Love the bunny costume! If you can look that feminine with as little clothes as that, you've made it to womanhood, lol.

    Hugs Allison!

  6. For the last two years I've "won" the office Halloween events with my deskmate. Year one, I was casual in a denim skirt and blouse and she was a Clark Kent theme. Last year, I was in a skirt suit, blouse with heels and seamed stockings, our theme was the movie "The Anchorman." I was "Veronica Corningstone" and my friend was Ron Burgundy. Sadly, my "partner in crime" took a job at a different office... I had told her before she left that this year would be bride and groom...maybe next year if I get a new "partner in crime." My office knows that I'm going to wear another outrageous outfit this year and of course I'll be in a dress or skirt.

  7. The bunny costume might be more than cool in this time of the year
