▶ Femme Name: Rachel McBride
▶ Location: Wellington, New Zealand.
▶ How long you have been crossdressing : I have been dressing up in girls things since I was about 12 year of age.
▶ Say something about your crossdressing experience: I adore trying to change my appearance into a passable female. Being an engineer , this means tape, tape and more tape!…hehe. The female form is something that all CD’s and Transwomen aspire to perfect, I guess. Over the years I have tried to improve my makeup and look with an actual smile or two!
▶ Reason you crossdress: I crossdress for the way it makes me feel….I can’t explain it but I find it quite intoxicating and very much a stress relief from a very busy role within my vocation. I am a gentle person by nature but feel even more gentle and calm when Rachel. This is something that some of my CD friends have in common. It just feels right!
▶ Things you like doing after getting dressed: I am very much closeted at the moment, just because…hehe….but when I’m Rachel, I love to just mince around the house (or Hotel if I’m away on business, trying on different outfits and looks and looking for that perfect lighting angle….you all know what I mean, I’m sure! I don’t photoshop or use apps, I promise. The challenge is to look like the real thing if I can. One thing I love though is the positivity, I receive from my friends on how I look etc. Something that doesn’t happen in a Mans world, and I thank everyone who has has lovely things to say about me…
▶ Your favorite outfits/style: I tend to love wearing lingerie and swimsuits etc. There is certainly nowhere to hide in these outfits! I have a naturally cuddly body. I was teased as a youth for having a girls bum, but now I’m ever so proud…hehe. I wear fitting clothes that tend to hold things in place, if you know what I mean!
