Mingyi is one of a handful of cross-dressing photo studios in Shanghai, where clients of all walks come to play at being the opposite gender for a few hours. The half-day sessions include a make-over (hair and make-up, which usually takes well over an hour), numerous costume changes, and a set of professional photographs. Owner Mingyi, who’s in his 20s, founded the studio seven years ago after requests from friends wanting to dress in drag for parties. Today the studio has people visiting daily, with the age of clients ranging from 17 to 70.
