Hi Karen,

I’ve had the pleasure of attending two of your parties in Long Island. One was last year. And recently I attended the Barbie theme party.

I’ve had a wonderful time at both Parties! I love the energy and people that I meet at your parties.

Thank you for having the courage to create such a platform for like-minded people to get together and enjoy themselves in a safe and protected space. I will be back!

Kind regards,
Thierry

Spirit Writes:

I enjoy Femme Fever events every time I go. The venue is perfect, excellent decor and staff, with a bar, plentiful seating areas for socializing, a great dance floor and a fabulous DJ that keeps you dancing all night. I always meet new friends as well as people I already know. Everybody is welcoming, friendly and non-judgmental. I am always tingling with excitement and anticipation every time Karen has a party. I look forward to every event.

Dear Karen,

Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for the wonderful welcome you and all the girls extended to my wife and me at our first Femme Fever party. It had been a long time since I had ventured further than our front door. For many years I have enjoyed the pictures you posted of the Femme Fever parties. They always left me thinking, if only. No longer a Long Island girl, I never thought the stars would align, allowing us to attend. But amazingly, it all came together last August! So with our hotel reservation confirmed and my several outfits packed, we headed north. I wasn’t sure about the hotel, but it turned out to be just fine. Clean and comfortable, with a super polite staff. I do recommend it. I had signed up for a makeover, knowing I would need professional help for my N.Y. debut. We arrived at the makeup room a little early and were greeted not only by you and your staff, but many by other ladies who also made us feel welcome. My makeup artist not having much to work with, did an awesome job. Even my wife, who comes from the less is more camp, was impressed with the results. The talk in the room went from guy stuff (cars) to silly gossip about the regulars. It was a great way to build confidence for the coming evening. We thought we were early getting to the Party, but there were many girls already there. The atmosphere was one of fun. Good music, a dance floor and plenty of seating. A great way to get to know others that share the same story. Being able to mingle with others was like a hit of Oxygen.

I'd like to tell any girls, whether local or from out of town, Karen is a treasure. If you are on the fence about attending her Femme Fever parties, don't be. Go through your wardrobe. I’m sure you'll have something you’ll enjoy being seen in.

Karen, as each month starts, we check our obligations to see if we can shift things around to join you at the next Femme Fever party. Hugs, Andi

Hello Gurlz and future Gurl Friends,

I’m so excited to write yet another testimonial for Femme Fever. The new FemmeFever PARTY venue is an amazing space that is modern, clean, safe, and roomy. The dance floor and seating areas are large and spacious. The bar area is very accommodating, and seats are available for the Gurlz that need to take a break from the DJ playing all the popular dance tunes.

I’m also sending a shout out to the Texas, California, Pennsylvania, New Jersey Gurlz that traveled in and made the evening so enjoyable. I was lucky enough to enjoy my Birthday Celebration during this party and everyone was so nice and kind; Thank You!

I as well as you can attend wearing the outfit of your choice if it’s not a theme night. I chose to dress formally for my birthday celebration with lot’s sparkles and a Tierra to top it off! The makeup done by Karen and her team is exceptional and will make you look and feel glamorous. It will be money well spent.

In my opinion it’s best to book a room at the Days Inn as the 10-minute ride to and from the venue is extremely easy to navigate and allows you the extra time to fully enjoy walking around the hotel property in your cute outfit and makeup publicly soaking in the experience within the safety of the property.

Now, more than ever you will not be disappointed if you choose to attend a Femme Fever event to let your Gurl out with a safe, like-minded community of individuals that understand and appreciate your beauty inside and out!

I first attended one of Karens parties for Halloween with my girlfriend. I thought it would be a one-time event for us, but we both loved it so much it has become a tradition for us. We found everyone to be so inviting and the whole experience was such a positive experience. We were just wowed by it all. We consider Karen and her staff to be a blessing for our community as well as other gals who come in all shapes and sizes; they are some of the most interesting people we have meet. Why sit in your home all dressed up when you can spend a night out with such wonderfully accepting people and be the gurl of your dreams?

Patty Writes:

A few years ago, I began attending Femme Fever parties whenever I could. I love them. Such great FUN and such great girls. For a crossdresser like myself, it is an incredible and surreal experience.

I always get the makeup done – offered beforehand. It is a professional makeover. I've been amazed over and over again with how Karen and her team of makeup artists transform regular looking guys into drop dead, gorgeous, sexy women. It's amazing. Like magic. What incredible skills and talent to be able to do that. In addition to being amazed by all the beautiful ladies around you, when you get the makeover, you will look your femme best for the party. You will also be getting a makeover with other girls like yourself and getting to know them in a social environment. That is an incredible and amazing experience unto itself. I strongly encourage everyone to try it. I feel it's part of the ultimate femme experience. There's just no other way to feel like that. And of that isn't special enough, when you get to the party you will have your new friends there.

For those who really love to dress and so want to attend these parties, but are nervous and scared, but manage to get there, then are afraid to go in, I say you must have really wanted to do it. You got dressed. You left your house, got in your car and drove to the party venue; The Living Room. Maybe you were scared to get out of your car. You saw a couple of other girls and joined up with them. You made it to the entrance and went inside. You did it. You pushed through the fear and anxiety. Now you are among friends and many others like yourself. You didn't enter a place where you didn't know who was there or what kind of dangers or threats might be inside. You made it though the hard parts. You reached the summit.

Exciting, sexy, electrifying, thrilling!

Exciting, sexy, electrifying, thrilling and a strong sense of belonging; This is what femme fever party night is all about!

When you attend a Femme Fever Event you will not be disappointed! This is only my second event I’ve attended but the first time I wore a cute one-piece bathing suit and long flowing cover up to an evening affair.

It’s a one stop shop if you use the services offered by Karen. The best part about reserving makeup with Karen and her team is you don’t have to worry about it and just focus on your outfit, hair, and nails. They put the finishing touches on your look to make your vision come to life!

Theme parties bring out your creative side causing you to focus on how you want to be seen by the partygoers. When I saw Tropical and bathing suit, I was a bit nervous. I was lucky enough to find a one-piece bathing suit that was flattering to my figure and colorful enough to go with complimentary accessories.

I just love the planning, preparation and primping that leads up to the big event.

The night of the party I stayed at the Days Inn and don’t regret that decision. I felt safe throughout my stay wandering around the hotel en-femme and loving being out in public. As I walked to the room for my makeup reservation, I felt a sense of calmness and confidence that reaffirmed my decision to be the gurl that I so long to be.

My makeup session delivered everything that I expected and more! My makeup, new hairstyle and outfit came together perfectly.

The venue of the party was well organized, comfortable and the staff and DJ delivered an evening of dancing, drinking and comradery. The nights activities were well received, and everyone participated in the competition for prizes.

Finally, the attendees were not shy, and the conversation went from trivial to life affirming depth that I just never expected to experience. You will meet many wonderful people that will be open and honest while getting to know each other. I was flattered to have caught the eye of a few boys at the venue that struck up conversation as well. One special boy and I hung out and flirted till 1AM.

If you are on the fence and not sure if you want to attend a Femme Fever Event, then this gurl will tell you that you won’t be disappointed, and the memories created will be cherished for years to come.

Hello Karen,

All I can say is WOW - What a wonderful event.

My makeup was absolutely perfect! I wore it all night without any touch ups and I looked beautiful even at 1:30AM.

Karen and pre party makeup team;

Over the last few years I was quietly purchasing the items I wanted to eventually become my femme persona now known as Sabrina Love.

It started with my little panties and progressed to nylons, the perfect pair of heels then my breast forms in 36C and finally my dress.

Having never formally been in public I was very nervous to come out however I felt you were the perfect person to guide me through my debut.

A few months back I met a gurl named Rose while out and about one evening and she told me about you and femme fever.

That simple sharing of information by Rose forever changed my destiny. If not for you I wouldn't be writing this with such a feeling of happiness and clarity.

When I arrived I was very nervous and hesitant, I actually drove by the hotel for pre party makeup 2 times before actually turning in.

When I opened the door and stepped over the threshold into the room I felt a rush of calmness and amazement of all the beautiful gurls in the room getting ready for the big night!

Your eye contact with me and "Hello, Welcome and you are" made me feel like I was in the right place.

I couldn't wait to get out of my street clothes and into my pink fluffy slippers and leopard print so I could let Sabrina out.

The makeup session was perfect and I was amazed at how quickly they moved me through the process.

The overall makeup process was focused on me and what I wanted, what my vison was and my artist delivered 100%. This was money well spent!

The help with my wig was wonderful as I never really understood how to actually wear one properly and I must say after a night of dancing and frivolity both the makeup and hair stayed in place with no issues all night.

Your invitation to dress in the room was a great idea! I easily got dressed and put the finishing touches of earrings, bracelets, necklace and perfume! Voila Sabrina was Ready!

When I arrived at the FemmeFever Party event location, you once again made everyone who arrived feel warm and welcomed.

I met so many nice people after my initial one hour of OMG I cant believe I am really here (Inside Voice) and talking amongst the gurls and guys flirting with me.

I had no idea how cute my heels were until I had so many compliments on my shoes and dress. ( I finally realized my internal drive to be femme for so long is finally validated).

I finally broke the ice and began dancing when you brought another first time participant over to introduce to me.

We hit it off and before you knew it there were several of us huddled together dancing, giggling and talking gurl talk and having a blast.

This was truly a wonderful opportunity to spread my wings and become the persona that I craved to be in a SAFE and comfortable environment.

I have the utmost respect for you and your team of artists and the confidentiality that you respect, understand and cater to.

As I write this recap of the night I am smiling from ear to ear content.

What happened that night is only possible due to the work that you do to organize all this, the love that you show our community of like minded individuals.

Your humility and humble approach is recognized by all. Even more so when you take a step back and see the big picture.

I now see you as a friend, mentor and role model of how I too can be a better person.

Much love to you and your team! I know our paths will cross again.

Michelle Writes:
Dear Karen,

I want to thank you for creating such an amazing event. I have been following your page for a while now and I’ve always wanted to attend one of your parties. Unfortunately, work typically would get in the way. However, after switching careers and getting free time, I was able to attend your party for the first time.

Let me preface this by saying that while I have gone out "dressed up" in public, December 9, 2021 was the first time I’ve been to a social event in full regalia. I had the best time! You’ve created a fun event in a safe environment. The girls I met were so welcoming. And while I only spoke to you briefly you were so warm and welcoming that I really felt like I belonged.

It’s exciting to "dress up" but truly exhilarating to socialize with like minded people and folks that accept our lifestyle. As a member of the LGBTQ community, one of the things we fear is going out in public and being harassed or even physically hurt... thanks to you, that’s something we don’t really have to worry about as the environment you’ve created is pleasant, accepting and warm.

I haven’t stopped thinking about that evening and the great people I’ve met. I can’t wait to go out again and I look forward to being part of this group and participating in upcoming events.

Thank you again for such a great time!

It was so nice seeing you last night at the Dinner . You look great. I think you have so much knowledge about life and the whole trans thing that it amazes me. I couldn’t agree with you more about the many things that you said.

I want you to also know that I am so very grateful that I met you way back. Your house was the very first place I "came out" to others. It was my first greet and meet. It was very comfortable and I felt so safe. I want to say thank you so very much for all of it. I certainly would not have gotten to where I am today without your assistance.

All my love,

Karen,

It's hard to believe it has been less than 3 years since I first attended a FemmeFever Party and I wanted to take the time to thank you for hosting these wonderful events and to encourage any newcomers (girls, admirers, girls coming out for the first time, etc) to take the jump and come to one soon!

Just a little about my experience with the FemmeFever parties... I first contacted Karen for a makeover session in May of 2016 and less than a week later attended my first FemmeFever party! The theme for the party was Spring Splendor and I proudly attended in a cute floral fit and flare dress that I bought from Macy's for just the occasion. The FemmeFever party is a great event that doesn't just start when you get to the party. Karen offers makeover services for anyone who is attending the party to give you the flexibility of getting ready and looking your best without the stress of having to do everything yourself. Karen has the makeover sessions at a hotel near the party location where there are always a bunch of girls getting makeup done or just socializing before the event. Just reach out to her to book your appointment.

You also have the option of booking your own room at the hotel if that is more comfortable for you to get dressed and the hotel offers great discount rates just by telling them you are with FemmeFever! The hotel staff are always very friendly and happy to get you checked in and over to your room as quickly as possible so you can start your night. If you're a little more comfortable and quick with your ability to get dressed for the party and just need to have Karen do your makeup, reach out to Karen to let her know you need to use the FemmeFever room to get dressed/undressed when you set up your appointment and she will try to accommodate you as well.

So, now that you came to the hotel, got your party outfit on and had your makeup done you're ready to hit the party for dancing, good food and drink and having a ton of fun! The party is only a few minutes from the hotel at a bar with plenty of front and rear parking and is easily accessible by driving or Uber/Lyft. Sometimes there are girls willing to carpool it over to the party from the hotel but if you like the freedom of not having to worry about coordinating the return trip, you'll have plenty of parking available and Uber or Lyft is always cool to accommodate us.

Karen sets the parties up as private events to ensure everyone is comfortable and safe and always seems to be running around making sure everyone is having a blast and all of the activities are going as smoothly as she expects them to. The girls and admirers that attend are all there to have safe fun and I have to say that at all the parties I have attended, I have been treated with total respect and friendliness by everyone I meet, staff or guest.

While there are plenty of girls with cameras looking to capture the fun, everyone is very respectful of the simple rule that if you do not want your picture taken, we will respect your wish. You can feel free to just dance the night away, sit and talk, do karaoke or join in the contests that Karen has at each party without fear of anyone not respecting your wishes for discretion.

Like I said, Karen has made sure this party is amazing in every way. The DJ is incredible and keeps the party going nonstop all night, the bartenders are ready to serve your favorites or any of the drink specials for the night, the catered food is delicious and there is always plenty of it at the buffet and the people you'll meet will have you smiling all night!

All ages over 21 are represented there, we have a great mix of ages, themes and styles. Where else can you say that in one night you got to dance with Britney Spears, a cute schoolgirl, a disco princess and an 80's rock chick at one event?

If you've been thinking of coming to one of the FemmeFever parties, I cannot recommend you do it enough! Come on out and I look forward to meeting you at the FemmeFever room beforehand or at the party for those of you confident enough that you have your outfit and makeup covered and are just ready to show up to party! Oh and remember, we love admirers too. I know some of the City venues can leave you feeling like a wallflower looking in, but that is not how we do things at a FemmeFever party! You will be part of the event, you'll be dancing and laughing with all of us and believe me, we love admirers and their attention LOL!!

I just wanted to let you know, in the last 4 months I have become so confident as Ingrid. I attribute it to you and your parties. Your makeup work has made me look like the beautiful woman I know I am but have never achieved in the past. The friendships I have made at the parties is something I never thought I would have. So THANK YOU!!!

Suzette Writes:
I want to thank Karen and all the girls for the fabulous time that I had last night at the FemmeFever "Back to School" Party.

This was my first event with FemmeFever and more importantly my first time out dressed ever. All the girls were so welcoming and warm, I cannot image a better experience for my first time out. The makeup that Karen did before I left for the party made me feel as pretty as I was excited.

I really have to thank all the girls that I met, chatted with, danced with or just waved to. You all were so wonderful whether it was before the party getting our makeup done or at the party. I want to thank every one of the girls that made my night so special. I will not name names as I am not that great at remembering them and I would hate to offend by accidentally omitting any of these beautiful girls. All the girls looked so beautiful, enthusiastic and so happy to be there! Your warm welcome and understanding of my situation changed my life. Instead of hiding at home, I hope I can get back out to another party soon. Now that I have gone I wonder what took me so long – the feeling was and is just so good.

Thank you all again and looking forward to my next visit –

Hi Karen,
I wanted to tell you what a great time I had at the FemmeFever Ringside PARTY this past Thursday. As you guaranteed, I met so many nice people. I am so glad I was able to be there and I look forward to the next one and all the times our paths will cross in the future. As I previously wrote, there is so much you and your group have to offer that I am interested in. From your meet up talk groups, parties at the Ringside, make-up and photo sessions, I'm excited for what the future has in store.

Again, I thank you for all that you do for the community.

OH MY GOD KAREN !!!

You are indeed the flagship in our journey to explore our alter ego with gender identification.

Thanks for the pix and memories last nite at the FemmeFever PARTY at Ringside Bar in Long Island. Was more then worth the trip form Massachusetts to attend!

I love you for the many ways you have given us to meet others for the support we need to be happy.

Dear Karen,

It’s hard to believe that January 14, 2016 FemmeFever PARTY has come and gone. It was the best evening that I have been involved with. Like Cinderella the evening ended at 12 midnight, but while the event was on, it was magical. The girls were so gracious, educated and concerning, so very kind. I was treated so nice by all and made so many new friends, I didn’t want the night to end. I’m hopeful to be accepted by this wonderful group and hope to see everyone again in the future. This group is so caring and understanding with powerful emotional energy, being without this community would be unimaginable. Thank you, to all the girls I talked to, you are fantastic and all so very beautiful.

Karen you are the best and I only hope and whish great things for you always. You are special and I have so much appreciation and admiration for you.

Thank you, sincerely

Dear Karen, Thanks so much for restarting the monthly parties. I had a wonderful time dancing with new girls and reconnecting with old friends. Thanks also for taking and posting your photos of that night. Even though I had my phone with me, I was having so much fun dancing that I forgot to take any shots myself!
Best of fun to all

Jenelle Writes : Hey Karen- I just need to say however grateful I am for everything you did for me for the party. I had the most perfect nite out with the best bunch of girls I ever met! Your workmanship is without a doubt the best I have ever seen! All your help with lending me clothes and doing my make-up made me have the time of my life I'll never forget!!!!!!!! All the positive remarks I got from the girls made me at ease!!!! You don't know how grateful I am for being my first time dressed as a girl and going out for the first time and all the support I got from you made me feel at home!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU again from the bottom of my heart!!!! Jenelle wishiagirl@hotmail.com


Tina Marie Wrote : I attended my first FemmeFever party at Kelli's in Belmore the other night. And i have to say i had the most wonderful time ! Not only was it a warm and inviting atmosphere i found great comfort in knowing Karen took every precaution to ensure we Gals were able to party in a safe enviornment. John was at the door ensuring only us Gals and approved Admirers ( very handsome admireres i must say ) were the only guests allowed in. That gave us the peace of mind to be able to let out hair down and set the stage for a most enjoyable evening. The owner and staff treated us like Royalty and saw to our every need. It meant allot to see friendly faces behind the bar that were happy to see us ,accepting us and making sure we were catered to and made to feel comfortable.. I will be returning for the next Femmefever event ! The Fetish Party in October...woohoo Tina Marie (tina_marie_1@hotmail.com) :)


Hi Karen I want to say to all the gals that you and your parties are THE BEST. I dress as often as I can - but am afraid to go out. Karen provides a safe and fun environment to go out in and all the girls (and guys) are: kind, respectful, helpful and fun to be around. I do not live nearby or I would go every month - the makeovers Karen provides are awesome. Even Karen's pre-party makeovers are instructive and she even does touch ups through out the night if needed. I was sooooooo scared to go out the first time. Karen took me and "held my hand" throughout the night - it was so refreshing to have someone who cares rather than someone who treats it like all business. Karen cares. Karen, I have not seen you in a while - family issues (not what you think) - but once I get free time I will be back up for the parties and makeovers. To anyone out there that want to give this a try - Karen is the only one I would trust and only one I would go with for the first time hugs to all Sommer Sommer8989@aol.com


I just want to thank Karen for always being there for us girls. I just attended the femmefever party and it was so much fun. Just being with the other girls and meeting new girls made me feel so comfortable. I also have had the fortune of doing a before and after shoot with Karen and I was blown away at her magic with the makeover she gave me. Thank you Karen; because of you I have found the confidence in myself to not only attend the party's that you have but also have found the confidence in me to go out in public dressed the way I feel and that is as a woman. Chelli (jdrocs2003@yahoo.com)


I also share the same opinion as everyone else. I had a wonderful time at the party last night! I'm so glad that we have Karen and can have parties and get together's at a nice place like Kelli's! I was very happy to make new friends and see some of the terrific people from the last party. For me this is the second time that I came out to a social event and when it was time to go I new that I had to, but I REALLY didn't want to! I think that it wa also very brave for some of the new people who came out socially for the first time! Bravo to you and although it can be hard just keep coming. It gets easier each time! gabrielle MRacing24fan@aol.com


Hi Karen, The party was wonderful! Some of the girls are stunning! I can't compare the turnout with parties in the past but it seemed to me that it was well attended. The food was good, the bartenders were friendly, the locale was superb and everyone had a good time. And you were the Queen.....you looked beautiful! Thank you for all you do. I can't wait for the next party. Love, Linda linda3929@yahoo.com


I attended my first femmefever party in February 2007 and I had a wonderful time I was very nervous at first, it took a couple of makeovers with Karen before I had the nerve to go but I'm so glad I did Karen did my makeup before the party and even helped arrange the drive over to the bar in case some felt uncomfortable driving alone I was still kind of nervous walking into the party but all the girls and staff were so friendly, I was comfortable pretty quickly it was a fun, memorable and exciting evening I can recommend Karen's parties for everyone and especially if it's your first time it is mostly a cd party but there are all members of the community, from cd's (first timers and regulars) some lifestyle tv's and ts's along with some select admirers and an occasional wife or two, it's great to meet everyone and a terrific opportunity to make some friends Karen hosts a fun party in a safe and comfortable environment and you can be assured she and everyone there will respect your privacy . feel free to contact me at gina_b@ymail.com


Hiya Karen!!!! Thank you so so so much! My very first time out and about was made fabulous thanks to you!!!!! I had a great time and felt so relaxed and comfortable in the setting you provided...I am still on Cloud Nine thinking about that night! I cannot wait until your next party...I certainly have the fever...or should I say Femme Fever now! Although I have been out for drives and into a few stores here and there, this was my first experience interacting with others as Samantha and loved every moment thanks to you! I cannot believe I entered the Legs Contest and won too...could my night have been any more perfect? I don't think so... You are a wonderful hostess and a very special person...I hope to chat with you more very soon! Thanks again for making my "first" real night out very special and simply perfect! I cannot wait for the next party... Big Kisses... Samantha samanthagirl11@yahoo.com


To all that have made this party what it was......Don't Stop what ya doing!!!!! Karen, Attending your party has given me such a lift in spirit. Seeing friends again, sharing good times and seeing you again. I must say again, you are the lifeline to many girls and we certainly appreciate it. Having Kellie's Bar treat us so well and have a buffet, speaks for itself. I look forward to many times there and meeting such wonderful people.

Karen, I so do thank you for all of your tired less efforts that you keep on giving to the cd/tg/ts community! You made my first time out a experience that I will continue to reflect on for years to come! Your biggest fan, Carly Renee Klein AKA the soldier from Fort Drum New York


Hi Karen; Once again thank you for all the fun we had at the gala. My wife and I had a blast. We just looked at the pictures and they are wonderful. So many pretty ladies. And when we read that you may hold 2 events a year... well we both were excited!!! We can't wait till the next one. Love, Joan towner5681@hotmail.com


Hi Girls , To anyone who is on the fence about going to Karens party, please give it a try . She is so warm & open minded, you will feel at home right away . Every body was was once in the same boat & had to get out of their house & car dressed as your true self. All the girls are willing to talk & listen to you. Hugs Diane dianegirl44@yahoo.com


Karen, You did an AMAZING JOB !!!! I cried tears of joy participating in your fashion show. Your dedication to us is endless and sometimes thankless, BUT I want to tell you from the bottom of this girl's heart, YOU ARE THE FLAME THAT MAKES US GLOW. Karen, I DON'T GIVE COMPLIMENTS UNLESS I MEAN IT!!!! You are the best thing besides breasts forms.LOL I can't say enough about you and how you're soooo dedicated. Once again Karen, You have made my dream and many others come true. Thank you. Hugs, Brittney sweethingts@yahoo.com


Thank you Karen for a wonderful weekend in New York. The event was more than I could have asked for and I got to meet some great people. You makeup application was esquisite and you did it so naturally even though there was so much going on in your suite. You are a true professional. My wife thoroughly enjoyed herself and we both enjoyed our ventures into the city for two plays and exploring the coastal cities on Saturday. Thanks for giving us a reason to come to New York. Hugs and Kisses April Dawn snowinapril2001@yahoo.com


FABULOUS party, lots of fun, great dance music, etc...altogether a JOYFUL experience, which to me is what life is all about. I love you, Shelley shelleyalexa@yahoo.com P.S. Just got back to LA via DC


I'm still recovering.....you can't a bigger accolade than that (Gala Ball)..I stayed at the after party till the bar closed...got home at 4...and was so pumped up I never got to sleep....I had the time of my life and my wife had a great time speaking to other spouses. I ran into friends I've know for close to 30 years...some I hadn't seen in a long time. I introduced my wife to many of my long time friends as well as many of my new ones that she had never met. Great Party Karen and everyone who was there that made it great as well as the special guests...that was impressive too. The people in the bar were great fun too. There could not be a better place to have this event than the Ronkonkoma Holiday Inn. The staff was terrific. Karen, as usual, ya done good, only each year good is better and better. Kudos to you. Sincerely Vickie Stone vickiestone@yahoo.com


Marla Wirites : Hi everyone! My name is Marla and I am a Tg girl living on long island, N.Y.As a Tg, I am used to being out and about "en femme" all the time so I don't even think about societies perception of me. I do however realize that many of my sisters have a difficult time venturing into public "dress- ed" but would like to be out in public from time to time. It is for this reason that I am writting this recommendation. Femme Fever created by Karen, hosts a gathering the second Thurs- day each month and this allows everyone to get together and have a great time. If you have ever had the desire to be out in public "dressed" and completely protected, than this is the venue for you. Karen who organizes the party is extremely supportive and provides make-overs before the event if you so desire.(Visit her website) I attended the recent February party and had a wonderful time meeting many new girls. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me. The girls at the party are extremely supportive, (as am I ) and we would love to get to know you. Love, Marla (marlamissprettyone@yahoo.com)


Gina Writes : Dear Karen, It's been over a year since a very shy person came to see you and I just wanted to update you on what has happened since then and how my life jas changed: After our first meeting in November of 2006, where you showed me how good I could look and took the time to be patient and compassionate with me, I have felt better about myself than I have in a long time. In that first session you showed me different looks and really made me believe in myself in a feminine mode. I visited you twice more after that and each time with your help flet better and better. Still being shy about going out, I finally took the plunge in April of 2007 at your monthly party. At your home I met some of the girls for the first time and nervously drove to the party site. I hung out with these girls who made me feel like we had been lifelong friends, as well as your support, encouraging me to dance in a contest right away! A guy even approached me at the end of the night and we had a very natural man-woman conversation-what a first night! Well, since then I have been to almost every monthly party, have made some great friends in between and have become closer to you as a friend over the months. I have also made a special friend in Sheila, who started the same month I did and we have become very close through the year. I can't say enough about you for what you have done for me. The experience is much more than dressing-it is relating to a great group of people! You have often been described as an angel and that is just what you are to us! If anyone is reading this and is thinking about seeing Karen, you can contact me at ggtv99@yahoo.com and I will be glad to tell you more! (Reading the testimonials is how I first decided to see Karen in 2006!) Continued success and I love you dearly and can never thank you enough! Love, Gina (ggtv99@yahoo.com)


Cosette Writes : Hi Karen, 

I attended the Halloween event, which was my first.  I couldn't have imagined a more accepting environment.  We all had a great time dancing, drinking and laughing the night away!

Julie Writes : I must say at first I was apprehensive about going to the Oct 11th party. I am glad I did. I met some nice people and the party was everything it was said it was going to be in the write up. It was discreet, private, and fun. Thanks Karen for being able to set up events like this. Many times, although my friends accept me as Julie, it never seems topan out they we are able to do activity things. This is great, cause it does enable me to do that.

Vickie Writes : I had been out of the scene for many years after being quite active in the late 80's and early 90's. All it took was one Femme Fever party to meet up with a number of old friends and to connect with a whole slew of new ones. Everyone was so friendly.I had a wonderful time. My only regret is that I missed the next two parties. I can not recommend the Femme Fever parties enough, particularly to "newbies." And, I can't think of more sincere and genuine person than Karen to put it ALL together...parties, transformations, photo-shoots, social events, make-up, wigs, clothes...you name it, she's assembled it all for us, and most important she really understands us. All I can say is you round once, it'd be a shame not to avail yourself of all that Femme Fever has to offer special girls like us -- so go for it!

Mike Writes : I attended my first femmefever party on Thursday thanks to Karen's invitation. I drove two hours from Connecticut and two hours back and it was worth every mile. Karen recognized me when I walked through the door and made me feel welcome right from the start. Everyone I talked to was very nice and made me feel right at home. Cindy even got me out on the dance floor! I feel honored to be a "select admirer" and plan on coming to as many femmefever events as possible. Thanks again!! Mike (mikeltour61@yahoo.com)


I would like to formally thank Karen for setting up such a nice evening on Jan 10th. I am brandy new to this group, I enjoyed the evening and found ALL the attendees to be very pleasant. You gurls are very welcoming, easy to try and blend in with - simply a joy. I know I will be much more outgoing at the next engagement, because as I took in my first foray, I could sense the calm, the confidence, the intoxicating positive nature of all the gals there - they knew who they were and stood up looking magnificent. I was incredibly impressed. In addition, I totally enjoyed my specific conversations with a lady originally from Queens, a total beauty (and I neglected to tell her such - she was gorgeous) by the name of Nancy.

Tina Writes : Hi, Everyone, Karen's parties are outstanding I have been attending them since she started them and I have attended every Thursday party that I possibly could even after moving to New Jersey. The parties have a great mix of gals who have been coming for years as well as newbies. These parties are great for newbies each of us "veterans" should fully support these parties (remember when you were new and scared and did not have a safe place to go) it's so important for us to have a safe, fun place to go. Karen, Thanks for all the past years and the future ones Love Tina xenaplace@aol.com
