In the winter of 2003, Norah Vincent, a 35-year-old journalist, began to practice passing as a man. With the help of a makeup artist, she learned to simulate stubble by snipping bits of wool and painting them on her chin.

She wore her hair, already short, cut in a flattop, and bought rectangular framed glasses, to accentuate the angles of her face.

She weight-trained to build up the muscles in her chest and back, bound her breasts with a too-small sports bra and wore a jock strap stuffed with a soft prosthetic penis.
