“The world will sing when I am King”

March 20, 2008

“All joking aside, words cannot express how much i love you fuckers.”

A moment of sincerity from Boss. I totally agree with the sentiment.

I’ve been saving this PostSecret. It’s dragalicious.

Though, personally, i don’t so much agree. For one thing i do have a penis, so there! For another, though, i’m not that fond of it. I’m getting over it, but my first reaction when i got it was to drop it and go “eww.” Actually, that was the first thing i did once i opened it. My first reaction was “heh, heh, i got my package in the mail, heh, heh.” Anyway, i suppose that’s a testament to the accuracy of the soft pack – that is much the reaction i have to the real thing (i have also heard from people who have much more appreciation for penes that the soft pack really is a damn good fakey). Also, it’s pink. Like, kinda skin pink, but it’s a rather icky color – they were out of pasty-ass-white that might have matched. But i am getting used to it. And, while i don’t like touching it, i do like wearing it (while i’m in drag) because it really does make a difference. It is completely different from just stuffing with a sock or something, which pretty much only serves to make a bulge; the packy actually affects, a bit, the way i walk, and i understand guys’ rearranging now. Overall, like any good costume, it helps you just get in character a little better.

A few weeks back i finally made myself something of a packing strap. Now, i could do without one – boxer briefs keep it in place pretty well (and i don’t wear baggy pants) – but every time i went to the bathroom it would fall out. Which is kind of funny, really, but also freaking annoying. Now i’ve sewed some straps on a pair of underwear, and my junk stays put. Yay!

i’m a drinker not a fighterOther notes on kingly fashion: thanks to Bouncer, i now have a zippo! Indeed, we all have king zippo’s in nifty little zippo pouches now. I’m gonna have to get a bit better at wielding mine, but it’s pretty freaking sweet. Also, i want this t-shirt. It’s perfect for him.

I’ve run across some handy blogs for men’s fashion tips (etc.). Kinowear is a pretty good place for general younger-metro-fashion info – my favorite so far is on how to fold a pocket square – despite that i’d think the authors were fucking pretentious assholes if i met them. The Art of Manliness i like quite a bit. It’s much more old-fashioned and courteous, and has a broader range of topics (rather than the “look good so you’ll get laid” focus of Kinowear…not that that’s a bad goal). Not only stylish fashion, but also “The Mechanics of the Man Hug” and “Write a Love Letter Like a Soldier” for a few of my favorites. I highly recommend it to any drag kings, butches, transmen, people who find gender interesting. Oh, and men too.

    That kinowear website is a great source of men’s fashion tips. I’m def. into the younger-metro fashion thing, and it was perfect. I’m not sure how I feel about the use of the word “kino” from that guy Mystery on the art of dating and all… but the site is well written and interesting, for sure.

    Can I ask what packer you got (mr. limpy? silky? mr.right?) Mr. Limpy is more a fun, throw it at the wall or twirl it in the air at derby bouts kind of packer, where as I held a Mr.Right in my hands at work, and suddenly I wanted one too! You might just need to find the right one for you.

    A packer and a zippo all in one week? Now you just need me on your arm, and you’re set (j/k).

    it’s a “soft pack” from babeland. i don’t know…that might be the same as one of the others because babeland doesn’t always use the brand names. don’t get me wrong, i like my packy, it just takes some getting used to =)

    you on my arm, too? that might be too much excitement for one little king! =D
