About male and female masquerading

Speaking of masquerade outfits. I’m getting really tired of how commercial masquerade outfits are so different for men and women. It’s a really sexist business. Check out this link for some brief examples.

One of the most interesting things I like to do in 365 Masquerades is when I get to do a gender makeover. Over the months I have discovered how much fun it is to play with the idea to be not just another character, but also a male/man/boy/old man. One of my personal favourites is this muscular guy (day 192).

After I posted him, my daddy sent me an email asking “is that you?!” The best compliment ever.
