...focused on dressing for pleasure in the Boston area since 1996. I offer the complete transformation experience in a discreet and whimsical setting, perfect for fulfilling femme fantasies and training in womanly ways and wiles.
Everything you desire is here: silky lingerie and stockings, flirty skirts, evening gowns, high heels and all the lip-gloss a girl can manage. We supply all the clothing & accessories, makeup & wigs along with creative guidance. Of course you may bring your own wardrobe as well. Enter this femme world to explore and give flight to your inner diva. Here you will find plenty of support and encouragement, absolute discretion, cool drinks and hot music, and a good dose of mirth.What to do? Dancing, photography and modeling sessions, tea parties, makeup, outings, shopping, girl talk... and what do you want to do?
The private location (Rt. 1A - just past Boston’s Logan Airport) has ample parking at the door, a photo/dance studio, wardrobe and makeup room, a lounge and private bathroom. Storage space is also available. I look forward to your visit!
...lingerie is potent and bewitching. I take great pleasure in the wizardry of transformations. My background is in Cultural Anthropology and social work; actually much of what I do now with My Changing Room relates to those fields. Transformations are more than skin deep and can liberate the soul. Really! Clients often remark that our time together has a very therapeutic effect. I am pleased to be a conduit in that powerful exploration process.
Developing the skills for transformations has been a compelling evolution, drawing on the psychological realm as well as the tangible. And damn fun too! This career path could not have been planned. Had I known about all this thirty years ago when three drag queens helped me out of a manhole I stumbled into in Lima, Peru I might have accepted their invitation for drinks and shortcut the entire process. The epiphany occurred around 1990 while traveling with a professor with a proclivity for cross dressing. He was quite striking every evening as we stepped out in Macedonia and Albania. In keeping such company I realized that my role as wingman/fairy godmother and confidant could be more than a favor.
I have studied with many top makeup artists to perfect my skills in creating glamorous yet believable looks for T-girls...and all girls. As a member of a fantastic organization - The Powder Group - I have developed a mid-life second career as a makeup artist. Annually I attend their makeup conferences and take professional seminars offered by celebrity makeup artists, as well as classes at the MAC PRO lab and the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy in NYC.
I have gathered and curated a large wardrobe and shoe collection and have learned how to coax the finest femme personae from nervous nellies and budding vixens. People of all ages and from all walks of life visit My Changing Room. I truly enjoy their company. They are intelligent, curious, accomplished and fascinating. Some are experimenting with a femme experience for the first time while others are frequent frockers who return on a regular basis. My oldest client of recond is a vibrant 92, still dressing for pleasure minus the heels. I don't see people under 21 unless there is a recommendation from a therapist or family.
Ms. Patricia, a dear friend and colleague, introduced me to the concept of cross-dressing for fun and for all- instead of the prototypical drag queens we adore but don’t wish to emulate. She imparted valuable knowledge, keen wisdom and hilarious stories. She dressed up all manner of girls for decades in the Boston area. Patricia, now a nurse, is living the lush life in Florida.
Veronica Vera’s first book – Miss Vera’s Finishing School for Boys Who Want to be Girls –has been profoundly inspirational. I took more than a few pages from her book to develop my own cross-dressing business. Her witty second book, Miss Vera’s Cross Dress for Success, led to gilding even more Lilies.
...feeling feminine is equally significant. I draw on all senses with transformations. I adore sharing my favorite girl pleasures (lipstick, perfume, girl talk, silky scarves, gorgeous gowns, sheer stockings, sparkling jewelry, chic handbags, champagne, whispered confidences and dreams...) with T girls, whether a "tourist" or an evolving woman.
In addition, I specialize in creating beautiful, simple and appropriate makeovers/makeunders for women over 50, imparting a new look for special occasions, weddings or every day.
When I am not frocking and fussing over girls - I am an artist living in Boston with two large dogs and a handsome, understanding husband.

I love what I do. I am fortunate to be in a job that has people thanking me a lot. I'm a busy emailer, blogger and such, but sometimes a message really makes me pause. The notes below are recent examples.
Dear Natasha, I can’t begin to thank you enough for yesterday’s makeover and session. It far exceeded my wildest expectations. The hair style, the makeup and clothes were simply stunning. I have waited 45 years for this. It means a lot to me, as I believe you know. You provide a valuable service to the community. I will, no must, do it again. Many many thanks, again. Warmest regards...
Natasha: Again thank you so much for the time we spent together. Honestly there aren’t words that can express the intensity of the experience. I absolutely had a great experience, beyond what I could have imagined. I so much look forward to seeing the photos. Some people only dream of what could be – I am committed to living my dreams and you took me even beyond that. It was great to take time out. I am usually in a hurry, hurry this and hurry that. You were unbelievably patient, understanding, intelligent, a great listener besides being a very pretty charming lady. When I return to Boston I will definitely want to see you again. Thank you for the experience. Life really is about the moments your breath is taken away. You made that happen for me. Affectionately...
Natasha, I wanted to write to you and tell you just how amazing today was for me. I felt so comfortable with you, which finally allowed me to open up and expose my true inner self. I have never felt to happy to have been able to be Tiffany. Even if it was only for a few hours. I felt truly like I was transformed into the woman I always wanted to be. I feel like there is so much more to explore with regards to Tiffany. I want to be able to express my femininity through her. Thank you so much for helping me through this. I still can’t believe how I looked. Passable or not, I felt beautiful and sexy and so feminine. I am sure you will be hearing from me again. I could have stayed there all day. I already want to come back. Thank you again.
I can't thank you enought for this afternoon. Our session far exceeded my expectations and you put me completely at ease. I found you professional, excellent at makeup, and a great teacher. Also smart, funny and empathetic. I could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience and have already recommended you to two others. I will definitely be back to visit you again for you to work your artistry and magic. I looked at the photos you took when I got home and there are so many great ones - out of 150 there are at least 50 that are excellent and could be in a book! I can only imagine what the pictures would look like when you choose the clothing too - next time for sure. Thank you for a wonderful and liberating time. Attached are some of the photos.
Our new web site is live!!!!!!! My Changing Room has entered the modern era of web design at last... Though I always liked our old retro graphics ;)
Thank you's go to my ever patient, lovin', and extra cool husband/ webmaster Don, and our Darling Steph, who keeps us online and secure. Poke around the site, see our new space if you haven't already. It's really a little community, and it's all about the girls.
