Archival Footage: How (Not) to Crossdress

This is an oldie but goodie from our Nerve.com days. For his column “I Did It for Science,” our friend Grant Stoddard decided to try out crossdressing. First he went to Miss Vera’s Finishing School for Boys Who Want to Be Girls. We weren’t too impressed with the results. So if you stick with the video until half-way through, you can see how two amateurs fare at turning a guy into a girl. See if you agree that less is more.


  1. The second try was way better than the first one. He looked more like a girl and not like something fake and overly weird. He definitely looked a lot happier with how the second attempt turned out and a lot more comfortable.

  2. WOW. talk about over done. There’s so much cover up on that poor man’s face. he didn’t even have that much hair to cover up! maybe they were thinking drag queen, and not just crossdress..?
