Disturbing but oh-so-fabulous: VICE International exposes the underground masking scene made up of thousands of predominantly older heterosexual men who like to transform themselves into living female dolls.
To do this, the men don full-body silicone suits, prosthetic breasts, doll-like masks, and elaborate costumes to recreate the female form. The community is active online and meets up in special female masking forums to show off their unique transformations, but many feel the need to keep the habit hidden from family and friends.
On this episode of VICE INTL, reporters head to Amsterdam and Germany to talk to veterans of the scene, as well as men who have never gone out in public in their alternative identity. (via OMG Blog and VICE)
