Dress guidelines for DLV attendees: Suggested dress guidelines will be posted on the activity schedule for each activity. For all activities, you may dress in either complete boymode or complete girlmode, and you are expected to make a serious attempt to dress in a presentable manner, in good taste, and in a manner appropriate for that activity. For activities held in mainstream (general public) locations, you are expected to dress according to what is considered usual and customary to blend with the general population for that activity. Although the DLV organizers do not wish to hamper your individuality, you are expected to dress in a manner which reflects appropriate age, size, style, and modesty for mainstream activities. Dressing in a manner intended to flaunt transgenderism or to attract attention is NOT acceptable. Admission to DLV activities may be denied to those whose dress is clearly inappropriate for that particular activity. Please remember that your dress and behavior in public as an individual does reflect on the group as a whole. Over the past 7 years we've built up the reputation of being fun loving ladies and gentlemen, but decent and well-behaved. Let's do what we can to keep this image. When selecting an outfit for any activity, consider all of the following: * Your personal style, your likes and dislikes, your comfort level. * Your age, height, weight, body type, and fitness level. * The time, place, and circumstance of the activity. When selecting an outfit to be worn to a mainstream public area, also consider what the majority of women of your age, height, weight, and fitness level will be wearing, and choose your outfit to be well within the boundaries of what is usual and customary for these women to be wearing to such an activity. Avoid the following, which are common mistakes made by those who are new to appearing in public: * Overdressing. Observe and follow the others of your age and size. * Dressing one generation behind. Many of our community seem to like to dress the styles that were popular during their teenage years. Try to be reasonably current with your fashion selections. * Dressing one generation ahead. Someone in her 40's looks grossly out of place dressing as a teenager. * Not considering size, height, weight, and fitness level in selecting an outfit. GG's who are 6'3" do not wear 5" spike heels to the mall. Likewise, BBW's who are over 200lbs don't wear bare-midriff outfits, period. * Being TOO natural! Unless you are youthful and have no facial hair and flawless skin, yes you need at least SOME makeup. Likewise, the average male body does need at least *SOME* padding and/or control to assume a feminine figure.
