Any tips for a total beginner via saggy boobs and also tiny hands? I"m Brazilian and I"m gonna be taking a drag workshop in the finish of November. I do not intend to perdevelop consistently, just discover my masculine side in this workshop and also come up via some fun number to entertain friends in parties. The thing is that the perchild offering the workshop was very recommended and she shelp she"s studiying tips for drag monarchs and also faux monarchs, however she"s a drag queen, and this will be her (and MY) first endure through this, so I do not wanna go right into this point entirely in the dark. My primary issue is that I have actually exceptionally big breasts, however I"ve been analysis tips on this, so I"m not expecting you to go tstormy the trouble of explaining me stuff I can uncover on Google. But I execute hope you have the right to provide me some idea on just how to work with these two problems: First, they"re not specifically perky. So it"s not just a matter of making them flat, there"s likewise the difficulty of not letting them "fall", if you recognize what I expect. Also, my best breaSt is bigger than my left one, I do not recognize if this is gonna be a trouble (I recognize, one is always bigger, but if I wear a bikini, for instance, anyone have the right to tell the diference). I"m not gonna buy a binder cause these are not that basic to discover right here and also I"m not planning on performing on a consistent basis, so I don"t think it"s worth it. I am reasoning around buying a sports bra, though. I"m going for a "gentleman" type (think Mr White from Reservoir Dogs, which happens to be my profile pic, or Leonard Cohen - I know, lipsycing I"m Your Man is a complete cliché, but you gotta respect the classics) so I"m planning on wearing a hat. I think that will additionally help via hiding my lengthy hair and also making it look short. Tips on exactly how to divert attention from exactly how tiny my hands are would certainly likewise be apreciated. It can seem favor a tiny point (no pun intended) but world freaking talk about how little they are, and also they"ll currently need all the suspension of disbelief they can acquire, me being a noob and also all. I"m thinking given that I"m going for the gentlemale point, I can go all out and also wear gloves and also have a cane.

I did my binding and included some facial hair (using my own hair clippings and also eyelash glue) and also went out grocery shopping now. I was surprised once I didn"t acquire any funny looks, also once I organized a conversation through a cashier (I carry out not have a masculine voice at all).My video camera died simply recently yet I have actually a pair crappy cell phone pics. Any advice would certainly be good. I"m sad around exactly how stubbly my mustache is. (Yay for cutsCollapse)
