    Default LGBTAitp #32: The Great Plushie Invasion!

    Hello to all, and I'm honored to see you enter the thirty-second incarnation of the queerest, rainbow-colored, extra-friendly corner of the Playground, the LGBTAitp thread!

    This is a thread where we Playgrounders, and LGBTAitp in particular, gather to discuss, share our experiences, give general advice and support one another in such matters as arise relating to, well, the world beyond heteronormativity.

    Please note that although the title of the thread names only the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Asexual communities, it is intended as an all inclusive environment.

    • Everyone is welcome. Let's try to keep from seeming otherwise.
    • Keep this topic free of politics and religion. (so, don't violate the board rules, plz)
    • It's beyond the scope of this thread to discuss whether LGBT is "Right." (And really, most discussions probably should avoid moralizing too much anyway)
    • Please refrain from posting sexually explicit content. (Keep it friendly as well as board safe )



    Keep in mind that content which contain strong language may be filtered (Plus, y'know, the forum-filters), and content that violates the forum rules won't be posted at all.

    Here are the links for the previous threads, where much of use or interest may be found:

    Hi Bianca!

    And yay for good therapists! I'm glad you've finally found someone who works for you! And this was in a different post of yours, but yay for getting introduced as yourself !



    I was just testing you ! Well, it's two more pony shirts than I have, so comparatively it's a very large and varied collection.



    Aaand, saved . Thanks for those! They will be very helpful! I have a good friend (the first one I talked to about my gender issues, actually) who is a master at make-up-ery, but she's very busy, so I haven't been able to meet up with her for a day of experimentation. So now I'll take matters into my own hands!

    How does the playground recommend getting experience with the art of tasteful deception, i.e. makeup? I want to look somewhat natural as opposed to say, drag queen.
    Now I'm confused. I thought you were FAAB. Anyway, the two most important skills to learn are how to shave really well, and how to use foundation. I thoroughly recommend an old-fashioned double edged safety razor for shaving - gets you a better shave than modern cartridge razors, and is a hell of a lot cheaper, too. Personally I'm fond of Astra Superior Platinum blades. For price comparison, I got a box of 100 blades on eBay for about 7, whereas a packet of 8 Gillette Fusion blades costs about 25.

    I'm told that proper barber-style straight razors give an even better shave, and have an ongoing cost of essentially zero, but the relatively high cost of entry and the level of skill they require mean I haven't given it a try.

    Once you've got those down, experiment with subtle makeup. Leave eyeshadow way the hell alone - I cannot work out how to use it without getting the drag queen effect. Mascara is really easy and quite subtle, and a black pencil eyeliner can also be good. Just don't go overboard.

    I like lipstick now, but it took me a while to get the hang of it. I think mostly it goes back to your shaving and foundation skills - lipstick draws attention to your mouth area, so if there's any visible stubble or shadow there, it'll be more noticeable.

    In more advanced techniques, I've started experimenting with blusher along my cheekbones, and I definitely like the effect it produces. Definitely makes my face a more feminine shape.

    The other thing that can help a lot is hair. If you have long hair, bangs are one of the most immediately feminising styles there are. Whatever you do with the rest of your hair, let a thickish strand fall loose down each side of your face. It softens the whole shape, and it's extremely female-associated.

    (... Although on the plus side, I'm learning how to do eyeliner really quickly. I should start using it and lip gloss more often. X3 )

    If I tried to use makeup, I'd probably end up looking like a drag queen, too, and I'm a ciswoman.
    But that's just because I'm that incompetent with makeup and uninterested to change that.
    Anyway, huh, listen to Helio for femininity advice. It sounds good. *nods*

    Using makeup well is definitely not as ubiquitous as it should be, especially relative to the ubiquity of using makeup.

    When you see the transformation of someone doing it right though it's pretty amazing. Like those pictures of Melissa Murphy's work.

    In more advanced techniques, I've started experimenting with blusher along my cheekbones, and I definitely like the effect it produces. Definitely makes my face a more feminine shape.

    The other thing that can help a lot is hair. If you have long hair, bangs are one of the most immediately feminising styles there are. Whatever you do with the rest of your hair, let a thickish strand fall loose down each side of your face. It softens the whole shape, and it's extremely female-associated.


    Arg, I hate that patch below the ear, just behind the jaw. So awkward to shave >_>
    What she said. Just 2 things i'd like to add to that:

    For me, a bit of eyeshadow works just fine. But i guess that depends on your type.

    I also use blush and like the effect very much. Blush takes some practice, though. The area where you apply it is critical, and too much looks just ridiculous.

    That one is a bit annoying, yeah. Generally everything under the jaw is annoying just because it can't agree which direction it's going, but that might just be me.

    Well, since I shave with a straight razor that patch has become ridicilously easy It's the part down at the neck that's annoying (though I notice how a really sharp razor has advantages over a slightly less sharp one).

    Edit: before I forget: happy new thread! *throws firecrackers and confetti around*

    I would imagine that shaving with a straight razor has other... unique problems when approaching the throat area.

    I'd probably end up bleeding out on the bathroom floor.

    Yup... Can't go near straight razors anymore after seeing Sweeney Todd more than strictly necessary.

    No, actually. The thickness of the skin, the nature of how a razor actually cuts, and the positioning of the vitals, you would have to be trying to do something like that. Both carotid and jugular are user enough other tissue that you'll freak out, drop the razor and freak out some more before doing any real damage while shaving.

    Unless you're like, numb, or really fast. But I mean, you can hold a sword blade and spear a target without issue due to how cutting works. Casual pushing o edge onto skin won't start peeling you without you knowing WAAAAY fast.



    Anyhoo. I think I had a depressive dyspepsia episode today, but it might have been a normal depressive episode instead or all mg depressive episodes are dysphoric? I can't tell any more. But I hate Rain and her damned bein pretty as successful and such. And envy of a comic character is pretty new.

    The movie is wonderful, indeed. Who ever knew Johnny Depp could sing? However, I'm instead referring to the three seperate shows in the last year I've seen of friends productions of the musical; one of which was fantastic, and the other two were passable. Although, Judge Turpin in one show got a nasty concussion from improper handling of a trapdoored barbers chair, which was really unfortunate, as it happened on opening night. The poor stage manager had to get the constume refitted for the next show, and to learn to sing an octave lower than he normally was capable of...

    Sadly I did not love the movie, I liked the idea of the movie, I like the actors playing in it, I just don't like to be interrupted constantly by songs...

    but yeas, You'll feel when you cut yourself with a straight razor (a pulling/tearing sensation on the skin), and the cuts have more chance to appear on the face itself (you shave your neck under a smaller angle then your face, decreasing the risk of cutting).

    but then again, it's a real great excercise to steady your hand.

    Me too, it is a very fun comic, though I constantly get worried for the characters. So much potential drama! D:

    On an unrelated note: I really have an urge to get back into knitting and sewing recently. I also have images of everybody as a plushie (Including adorable black square Nope)... Oh well, probably just random thoughts. :3

    You underestimate my incredibly high levels of terrible luck. It wouldn't be anything I try and do. It would probably be something like one of my kids hitting me in the back of the leg causing my hand to jerk, or some kind of really over complicated Final Destination scene.

    I'll stick with my electric razor, thank you very much.
