NOTE: I know it’s been a while since I posted here. Let’s just say a lot of life has happened between 2018 and now. I’ve thought about closing up shop here during this time but, you know what? I’m still a crossdresser and, to be honest, I am now more than ever. Like really seriously into it 😉
A couple months ago, I did a Google search for a particular (feminine) garment I was interested in (can’t remember what it was though) and I came across a new website I’ve never seen or heard of ever, Vinted. That garment was for sale brand new at a price that I thought was rather low. Well, I didn’t happen to buy it but I did spend a good couple of hours browsing around in there. The OMG moment finally came around.
If you’re not familiar with Vinted, it’s more or less a website that promotes clearing out your mass of unused clothing and/or buying it from someone else who wants to clear out their rejected threads. It’s almost identical to eBay in a way, however, eBay is, really, too hard to find what you are looking for. Vinted is pretty much just for finding clothing and that’s it.
In the nearly two months that I’ve used Vinted, I’ve been obsessed with it. I’ve not only found awesome second hand clothing but also new items still with tags that people just happen to have sitting around. What a concept!
Of course, I could have looked around and shop for regular male clothes but, hell no! I went after all the womens’ wear that I have always been dreaming about draping over my body. Miniskirts, bodysuits, lingerie and of course my most sought out items… anything Wolford.

Stop paying attention for a second and, all of a sudden, you miss what gorgeous new products that will happily feed our never-ending pantyhose fetish. I’m usually always on the lookout for something new and sexy to drape my legs in. However, the glossy look has given way to matte opaque tights and leggings which women go crazy over these days. Not exactly great news if you’re the high-shine loving fetishist like I am.
Yet there are some new developments that have just caught my eye that I just can’t wait to get my legs in…
Cecilia de Rafael Libero Seamless Pantyhose
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw these. Finally, the reincarnation of the Wolford Fatal Neon tights, albeit a very sheer 15 denier as opposed to the 40 denier of the Fatal Neon. Of course there was a previous attempt at a revival with the Krystelle 30 seamless which didn’t quite live up to expectations. The CdR, however, looks promising and just look at that shine!
Not too long ago, I may have balked at the sheerness but, now that I shave my legs regularly, the Libero will be a welcome addition to the collection. Likewise, if you’re still sporting the gorilla legs, the Libero should unquestionably be given a pass. That or keep the legs out of public view (please).
Note that these are so new that they haven’t been manufactured yet. They are due out sometime in December so have your legs nicely shaved and ready (please).
I’ve pretty much lost hope for a revival of the pantyhose of my dreams, the gorgeous Wolford Fatal Neon. Sure, if I’m lucky, I could find them on eBay and fork over a small fortune for a pair that quite certainly has been opened and come upon (which, before today, I would have been fine with). I, however, ran across something that nearly brought this pantyhose enthusiast to tears.
If you’ve never been to Shapings.com, they are quite a treasure trove for legwear, like a Walmart for your pantyhose and even some lingerie needs. What really sets them apart is their large selection of imported, high end hosiery, basically a one-stop shop for the serious pantyhose fetishist. They are based in Canada and ship overseas (yes, USA too) and have been a very reliable source for those hard to find items, even out here in Europe.
So imagine my curiosity when I see on their home page an image which looked eerily similar to those I’ve seen of the Wolford Fatal Neon. Not only that but, holy shit, you can buy them. So I did the next logical thing, let out an OMG in a girly shriek (last time you’ll ever see OMG here again by the way), and clicked to the page, mouse hand shaking.
And there it was in all it’s glory, the Krystelle 30 Seamless pantyhose made by… Shapings themseleves? Quite interestingly, they teamed with an Italian manufacturer to produce the Krystelle 30 pantyhose to their specs and then brand them as their own. I say what a genius they are to see the void the discontinuation of the Fatal Neon long ago had created and jumped in to save the day.
I’ll be honest. I have never really dived into the world of complete transformation beyond using the typical makeup, wig and a padded bra. OK, maybe I’ll go for a padded panty, too, but that’s about as far as it goes. I prefer to take the purist approach to crossdressing which is not doing what a vagina-possessing woman wouldn’t do herself.
(Wild acts of varying degrees and screams while crossdressed not included of course)
That’s not to say I haven’t looked around at online shops at all the wonderful transformation items available, besides your standard wig. Breast forms, masks, gaffs, all things that can turn the ugly man-shaped body into a sleeker, feminine fantasy version to die for. Alright, maybe not to die for… more like a half man, half-freaky woman. But getting there is half the fun, right?
Yet I came across something I’ve never seen or heard of before. Something that combines everything into one and can actually give you a shape, shall I dare say it, halfway passable. I had to look further into this thing they call the Femskin.
It should be known that I’m not at all a fan of pantyhose made just for men. If, however, you take a pair of normal pantyhose for women and doctor it up a bit to suit my crossdressing tastes, well then you just may be on to something.
If that pair of doctored pantyhose uses the famous Peavey brand worn by the lovely Hooter waitresses around the world then you’ll definitely have my attention.
Browsing around the internet recently, I wound up on a website called Etsy, an online store similar to eBay, without the auctions, where individuals can sell homemade arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing and hard to find vintage items. Just my luck, I ran into the shop of EddieJames, specializing in “sissy” items for crossdressers.
I’ve been around quite a few dating websites for the transgendered community and have been disappointed by nearly all of them. Usually, they are plagued by one or more of the following:
– High monthly fees.
– Too many weirdos, with cocks for profile pics, spamming your inbox for a quickie later on tonight.
– Having to filter through non-transgendered (e.g. other fetishists) in meeting other crossdressers/transvestites.
– While nice to see who has viewed your profile, you cannot anonymously view that of another.
– Too much promotional spam flooding the email.
Then recently, I happened to have randomly come across a website I had never heard of, tvChix.com.
I don’t know about you but I seem to be a really bad Youtube junkie… somehow minute and a half videos really get my jollies off even if most are bad. I recently came across a Youtube video, however, that was so incredible, it absolutely blew me away. This was even on the topic of transvestism, so more than worthy of a mention here.
If you haven’t watched the three minute clip of an Eddie Izzard stand-up routine above, take the time to do so. Did you laugh at “the element of surprise” too? I thought so.
Arguably, a favorite pantyhose among enthusiasts (such as yours truly) is the revered Wolford Neon 40. It’s everything you want in pantyhose: silky, shiny, comfortable, durable and looks incredibly hot on any pair of legs. Yet there is one type of Wolfords, unfortunately discontinued for a number of years, that trumps even the Neon 40.
The Wolford Fatal Neon.
I found this the other day while browsing The Gender Center website (Australia).
