This is their specialism. And once dressed the subsequent activities focus on performance aspects such as different outfits, posture, deportment, walking in heels and of course photography. The essence in these sessions is to find the right way for you.
They naturally want a client who comes back regularly and moves on each time as you both come to terms with what you want. Tourist dressing where you hop form one to another in the expectation of finding your perfect dressing service never works and you will be continually disappointed as they do not understand what you want.Have some idea of what you want and be able to talk about it in your first telephone call or meeting and things will develop so much better than just saying I want to dress
- Empathy – by this I mean does the service and the woman on the telephone seem to understand what you want? Do the pictures on the website show girls wearing what you would like to wear. Do you also like the sound of the person on the line.. This in effect shows the two of you have a shared goal/mindset
- Facilities – get a rough idea of the location, layout and setting where this happens. Try to find out if they have an extensive wardrobe that suits what you would like and what does the flat/house they operate from offer in terms of rooms, gardens and photo studio,
- Value – I say value not price because you have to think what you want to achieve. Good wardrobes cost money, good photography takes time. Good make-up cannot be done in half an hour. As they say if it seems too good to be true it probably is and you will be disappointed when thousands of others have had a great time. Beware however hidden extras. Do I get the pictures on a memory stick or do I get a couple and then pay for more? Are eyelashes and nails extra? How many changes do I get in my time etc.
Finally I would like to say from my experience that most of the people working in the dressing world are nice people who genuinely like to make you happy. Yes they have to make a living and therefore it is rare to find a cheap good one. They should treat you with respect and vice versa. With that you will end up with an exciting fun relationship.
