37-year-old Cassandra Cass lives in San Francisco and has an unusual obsession with Jessica Rabbit. She has spent over $200,000 (£132,000) becoming a living model of the character and is not stopping yet.
Cassandra grew up in Des Moines, Iowa. She was number three of four boys. `Growing up in a very masculine family, I`d always make believe that I was something else,` she said
She was born to a housewife and a football coach. Her father initially had difficulty in accepting her transgenderism, but eventually became accepting; her mother was always supporting of her daughter`s transgenderism. Her father is still alive, but her mother died from cancer. At some point in her early life, she came to accept she would be more comfortable as a woman.
Like many Trans individuals, Cass` transition was gradual, beginning with presenting as a woman through clothing, hair, and make-up. After educating herself about the process and with the advice of medical professionals, she later made the decision to undergo hormone therapy and plastic surgery.
After moving to San Francisco, she has undergone sexual reassignment surgery Cassandra, is a name she chose from several sources. Her mother`s name was Sandra, and her drag mother`s name (when she was in drag performance) was Dena Cass. So she just combined all three to get Cassandra Cass.
