It's the 18 hundreds. A masquerade ball is being held. People in masks everywhere in the ballroom, nobody recognizes each other. And there, hidden in the bunch stands a girl. A perfectly average looking girl, though, if you look closer for an extra second, something might seem...off? The marked chin and cheekbones, not seemingly belonging to a lady. Because they don't. Hidden beneath a wig, ballgown and mask, is a young, unmarried guy. A guy, who's only chance to live out a unheard of dream of his, is at this ball. His only chance to be himself, a lady, is tonight. And he enjoys it full out! Before the next ball, he has probably gotten married, and won't have a chance. Tonight is his night.
You often hear people say it's bad to "hide behind a mask". But this guy can only be himself behind said mask, at this exact moment. Guess a happy pride month is in order Also, I say him because of the timeage, because he's only a lady this one night and to clear up confusion, because it is supposed to be a dressed up guy. If he lived today, it would definitely be a she/her! #happypridemonth #pride #pridemonth #drawing #art #mydrawing #myart #guy #guydrawing #masquerade #pencildrawing #coloringpencil #colouringpencil #rose #fan #victorian
