They'd had to have the skirt made, but even so, Mark felt like it wasn't long enough, like he'd have to spend the entire evening yanking it down and held his breath while Troy laced him into the corset Brody had picked out.
"Why are we doing this again?" He asks.
"Because." Troy replies. "It'll be..." He yanks on the corset strings. "Fun."
Somehow Mark doubts it. But he leans into the mirror and draws kohl around his eyes and paints his lips and feels less like a girl than he probably should considering the circumstances.
The shoes are the crowning touch, patent red heels and Josh found, oddly. Though God only knew where a person could find a pair of size 18 pumps and how Josh, of all people, knew where that place was. But Mark isn't about to turn my nose up as such a gift, not that he needs the extra height, but he teeters around in them passably enough.
He does so now, catching his reflection in the mirror, tattoos and track marks crawling wickedly down his arms. To him, it doesn't inspire much confidence.
But it's too late to back out now.
