When are your classes? Private lessons and male to female transformation services are available by appointment only. Appointment hours are available 7 days a week. A $60 non-refundable deposit is required to make an appointment.

How far in advance do I need to make an appointment? Appointments should be made as far in advance as possible especially if you wish to book a session longer than 3 hours. Usually Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoon appointments fill up one to two weeks in advance. Make-up appointments before a special event can fill as far a month in advance.

What is the cost? Total cost for a make-up application is $60. An hour and a half make-up lesson is $75 and a 3 hour session with transformation plus optional lessons and photos is $200.

Where are you located? Le Femme is located in a private home on a quiet street in Piscataway, NJ. Piscataway is in Central NJ just 26 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport and 37 miles south of New York City.

Can I get to you by public transportation? You can get to Le Femme by train from New Brunswick, Newark, New York, Trenton, Princeton on NJ Transit trains. Take SEPTA from Philadelphia. From Boston, Washington DC and other locations use Amtrak. The easiest and least expensive way to get here from New York City is the NJ Transit Bus #114 to the corner of West 7th Street and Rock Avenue in Piscataway, NJ.

Can you pick me up at the train or airport? I can pick you up from the Dunellen train station on the Raritan Valley Line for free. I can pick you up from the Edison train station on the Northeast Corridor Line or the Newark Liberty International Airport for a fee that is half the cost of a taxi.

Where can I stay overnight when I visit your school? There are several motels near each other less than 3 miles or 10 minutes from our location. All the motels are located on the South Plainfield/Piscataway boarder near exit 5 off of Route 287. They are the Motel 6, Best Western, Ramada Inn, Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn Suites.

Is your studio discrete and private? The main studio for Le Femme Finishing School is in a sunroom attached to the back of my home and has a private entrance. There aren't any signs on or in front of the house to indicate the school is there. You will have your session alone with Lady Ellen although other people may be in the house.

What do I need to bring with me to my appointment? Everything you need to dress from head to toe can be provided for you. You do not need to bring anything. I suggest you consider bringing your own panties and stockings if you have them but you can choose to borrow mine. You can bring any items you wish to use for your session but it is NOT required. If you have a desire for a very specific item please ask if I have it in your size.

Do you think you can make me "passable"? I believe that to pass means to blend in or go virtually unnoticed. I believe that with great hair and makeup anyone can learn to dress and behave in a manner that would enable them to pass in public. It may take a little time and practice as well as some bravery but you can do it and I would be happy to help you along the way.

Are you going to use or post my pictures on your website, Facebook or Meetup page? I will not post or use your pictures anywhere unless you ask me to do it and/or you give me your consent. You do not have to have your picture taken during your session but I recommend you do because you are going to love the way you look and want to remember it. If you don't want to use my camera you can bring your own. Also you can bring a memory stick for your pictures or I can put them onto a disc for you.

What do your neighbors say? My neighbors say, "Hi! How are you?" and they smile, wave and go back to their own business. My neighbor have not commented to us although they see girls entering and exiting the house and at parties out in the yard.

Can you set me up with a t-girl or admirer? Lady Ellen and her associates DO NOT provide any sexual or dating services. You are invited to attend a social event and meet potential friends. Perhaps that can led to deeper relationships.

Where is it safe to go out dressed? Anywhere in NJ you can go out dressed. NJ has a law that gives people the right to public access regardless of gender identity or gender expression. It is important to dress appropriately for where you are going and act appropriately so you can blend in. I would not recommend going into small local bars that you are unfamiliar with but any restaurants, stores or hotels are fine.

Will you go shopping or out to a restaurant or bar with me? I will go out with you anywhere you want to go and even hold your hand if you are nervous.

Have you had other clients my age? My youngest client was 18 and my oldest client was in her 80's. I estimate that the majority of my clients are between the ages of 50 and 70.

Have you had other clients like me who are married and heterosexual? Most of my clients identify themselves as heterosexual, some are bi-sexual but only about 1 out of 100 identify as gay. The majority of my clients are currently married and some divorced with a few who are single.

Will you tell me which makeup I should buy? When you come for a make-up lesson I will give you written application instructions with a list of affordable products that are specifically your color and meet your personal needs. I do not recommend any one brand for all cosmetics but like a few different brands for individual products.

Can you tell me my bra and clothing size? I can measure you when you come for any appointment session and write down your clothing sizes. Since clothing sizes vary by manufacturer I will allow you to try on a few items to get a better idea of what to look for when you shop.

Can I buy or rent clothes & wigs and stuff from you? Currently I am selling good quality wigs at the excellent low price of $60. I may be expanding to offer more items for sale in the future. I recommend you make an appointment to come in and try some wigs on. Clothes and other items are available for you to use during your session or during a party and are included in your makeover fee. I do not rent anything or loan items for you to wear out.

Can you store my femme clothes? We do not have room to store any clothing for you.

Do you accept donations? Yes we accept gently worn women's clothes, shoes, wigs and breast forms in every size. Some will go to the Le Femme collection for client use, some will be donated to those in our group who are struggling financially and the remainder will be donated to charity.

Can I come to the school for multiple consecutive days? Yes, you can make appointments for multiple days in a row. You can book an entire 8 hour session or less each day. You must send a deposit for each day and book one month in advance. If you need to cancel multiple day appointments you must cancel one week in advance in order to request a refund of your deposit.

Can I shop online and have packages delivered to your location? If you are scheduled for an appointment and wish to have a package delivered here before you arrive mark the mailing label as YOUR FEMME NAME, c/o Lady Ellen, 1437 Glenwood Drive, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
