In this time the Full Experience has evolved into what is arguably the best M to F transformation available anywhere. It is our goal to give you the best girl day of your life. We have a beautiful 4000 sq. ft. studio where you will discover your inner girl among an unbelievable cache of feminine accessories . The TG Miss studio is girl heaven and well, heaven is a little boring alone, so please come join us. We are going to do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and at home. Throughout the day you will see the girl in you come to life. The photos we capture will take your breath away. Many a happy girl sheds a tear of joy when she sees how pretty she looks. When the shoot is over we don't kick you to the curb! It's not uncommon for a girl to linger to share ideas, thoughts and a beverage. The studio is our sanctuary and we look forward to sharing our skill and passion with you. It is our goal that you have "the best girl day of your life"

....So Many people ask why it takes 6 hours...

The Full Experience works best in a 6 - 8 hour format. There is much to do, the average girl has her first photo taken on stage about 4 hours after she arrives. Here is what happens before that first photo.

 

Arrival:

We welcome you to the studio and introduce the staff members who will be working with you during your shoot. After the items you have brought with you are unpacked in your dressing room, we lead you on a brief tour. No one has gotten loss yet, but there is a lot going on in our spacious studio. We want you to be comfortable and familiar with your surroundings.

Consultation:

All shoots start with a consultation. We sit down and map out our goals. First off, we will ask you what you want to accomplish? Some girls want to reaffirm they are pretty, others are looking for the first glimpse of the inner girl they have always felt but never seen, still others are getting great photos for that special someone in their life, but most girls come in just to have fun. Regardless of your reasons, we will work to achieve your goals.

 

Wardrobe:

Now that we know what we want to accomplish, its off to plan the wardrobe! Many girls bring a few changes of clothes. Some girls bring several suitcases. Regardless, we will go through what you have brought and plan a shoot based on the look you have chosen and a combination of your clothing and items from our clothing selection. Our wardrobe is contained in an large 2 tiered closet with more than 120 feet of hanging rod. We have 1200 dresses on display for you to choose from. We have another 800 dresses on racks for fresh costuming content. Dress sizes run 0 to 28 with more in the standard sizes. We have something that will fit most everyone. There are dresses for the young cross dresser as well as the seasoned gals. The types of our dresses range from the styles of the 60's through contemporary fashions, with a stop in every decade. We have a nice selection of fancy formals, prom dresses and wedding gowns. In addition we have a great collection of Victorian Gowns with all the hoop skirts and petticoats to match. And if that were not enough, we also have fun renaissance wear. Between our dresses and what you have brought we will come up with what you want to wear and we can go to the next phase which is Makeup. Many times a photo shoot turns into a night of playing 'dress up'. We always have a good time, this is going to be fun!

 

Makeup:

Makeup techniques vary from shoot to shoot; the average time to do makeup for a full shoot is a little over 2 hours. We don't believe in "good enough" it's got to be "right". Here is a good example of how makeup might be applied:

eyebrows

Eye Brows: Some girls allow us to tweeze their eyebrows as we see fit, most often we simply do a clean up. We make your eyebrows look like they would after you visited a full service salon for men. We are happy to give you "guy-brows", the look we would make for a male model. Still others do not want anything done with their eyebrows at all. While this makes a convincing feminine look more difficult, we have techniques for this eventuality.

taping

Taping: Sometimes it is advantageous to apply tape and elastic bands to give a mini face lift. We will decide the merits of this technique once you sit in the makeup chair. You don't have to have taping, but it can do a great job of erasing those extra years for older clients.

foundation

Foundation: We will select a foundation to match your skin tone and color. We use a combination of cream and airbrush foundations to give you that near flawless look that all girls desire. Applying the foundation can take a good deal of time depending on the particular challenges a face might give us.

blush and highlight

 

Blush and Contour: The foundation has given us a great blank canvas. Blush and contours allow us to start to put some of the color back into your face in all the right places. Blush can accentuate a feminine cheekbone while contouring colors are used to thin, curve, widen, or lengthen the visible dimensions of your face as needed. This process is different for every girl, and it's why TG Miss girls don't look like they came from a "cookie cutter" mold.

eyes

Eyes: We pay special attention to your eyes. "The eyes are the windows of the soul" it is said; we want your eyes to brighten up your face like a well lit window brightens up a room. Choosing the right eye shadow is usually a great challenge. We will likely ask you what colors you feel look best on you. We have over 250 eye shadow colors in our pallet. We also make custom eye shadow colors using professional cosmetic pigments and application media. There are several different mediums as well. We have water based colors, loose powders, pressed powder pans, waterproof shades and even acrylic airbrush skin paints. We never know for sure what we will use until we custom design your makeup scheme. Because it is an easy way to spread eye infections, we don't use mascara. Instead all of our clients receive a free pair of false eyelashes. It takes a little while to get used to them but all the clients love them and the way they accentuate their look. The eyes are finished off with the right eye liner and then its onto the lips.

lips

Lips: The lips are just as important as the eyes when it comes to sculpting your face. The right shade and shape are very important. We can bring back the full lip look of younger years. As we age our lips thin, the right makeup application reverses this. Our makeup is designed for photography, therefore it is going to be heavier than you would wear during the day. Your makeup has to show through the bright studio lighting. The last thing we want is our subject to look washed out. With your lips and eyes done we will do a final blend, and then its time to dress.

 

Dressing:

Many clients prefer to dress in private, some require a little help. Some of the Victorian looks we love so much are nearly impossible to slip into alone. We will help where it is needed if you so desire. We are happy to give you the space you need, just let us know what you feel your needs are. Your private dressing room has a large mirror, so you can decide if you want to be seen in what you have just tried on. We will pick a first outfit, and then work on accessorizing it. We have racks of costume jewelry and a nice selection of heels to supplement the shoes and items you have brought. We have a large number of wigs. Want to see what you look like as a blonde, brunette, red head, we have them all and in many styles. We have a good deal of hair accessories as well, we will help you put together a full look that anyone would be proud of. We want you to know you look great, there are many mirrors throughout the studio to confirm your confidence. With a tweak and a twist you will be ready for the camera and it's off to shoot some great photos.

 

The Shoot:

Most girls are at best uncertain of how to pose themselves. We like to call the first outfit  "the sacrificial dress". During the first outfit you will learn a few basic poses and we will adjust camera settings and lights. We always get a few good photos from this first set, but better things are to come. By the 3rd outfit (about 6 hours) your body language shows poise and confidence, your makeup adjusts to your skin and is now looking its best, all of this add up to the TG Miss Look. Expect to have several 100 photos taken, all of which you take home with you. We wont try to sell you a photo package. You can pay us to do post shoot editing and cropping. Our makeup and lighting is so good, this really isn't needed but some people would like those extra touches added to their photos and we will be happy to provide that service. Our shoots are not that unlike a models shoot, expect to be a bit tired when you have finished, We bet you will have a new respect for the hard work professional models put in.

 

When its all over:

Through out the day we will take photos, during makeup, on the stage and a candid shot or two. Please bring along a 32 gig USB drive to transfer all your photos onto. We can supply an USB drive to you for an additional $25.00.   At the end of your shoot, If you are not leaving dressed as a girl we give you ample time to clean up. We supply all you need to clean up: makeup remover, soap, wash cloths and towels. If you are leaving in girl mode we will be happy to touch up your makeup and be sure you are leaving looking great! The decision is yours and fine with us either way. You can pay the balance due for shoot with Cash or Credit Card. Every penny you spend goes to ensure the next girl will have as great an experience as you. The Staff of TG Miss does not take a salary, Tips are certainly welcome.
