Drag King Makeover Tips
Your hair is one of the most important parts of a drag king performance. While there are some drag kings who work with long hair, this tends to soften the face and make people see a woman instead of a man. It is still possible to do female to male drag with a feminine hair style, but a short, masculine cut will work better.
Here are a few items that are good to have on hand before starting your drag transformation:
Binding supplies, such as a compression vest, pantyhose you don't mind cutting up, or a sports bra in a size too small
Brown eye shadow
Makeup brushes and sponges
Clean mascara brush
Depending on how busty you are, this could either be crucial or not terribly necessary at all. With small to medium breasts, a sports bra that is a size too small can often be enough to get everything flattened out enough. With larger breasts, purchasing a compression vest may be necessary. A cheap stop in between these two extremes is a pair of pantyhose. Cut a hole in the crotch to put your head through and trim the legs down so that your hands will be free and the material will not be exposed by your clothing. When binding your breasts, try to press them down and out towards the sides, to better approximate pecs. An easy beginner's mistake is to press them inwards and upwards, but this only accentuates cleavage.
