A gender illusionist is someone who puts an insane amount of effort into looking like a woman for the purpose of entertaining others. It's a lot like being a drag queen, only the makeup and costumes are a little less flamboyant and extraordinary.
You know, I had no idea! That's a really, really cool concept. (Shall I quote Eddie Izzard, and ask if it's similar to being an "executive transvestite"?)

How kind of you to ask! You can refer to me however you'd like. Sometimes I legitimately feel like either a boy or a girl, so I answer to both.
Okay, cool! Generally speaking whenever people crossplay I refer to them by their character's gender rather than their own, but I did want to check.
