Cross-Dressing in Fable Series

In Fable II and III, the player can choose a male or female avatar. Regardless of their choice, they can wear any of the clothes available in the game. The clothing is still gendered, however, as demonstrated on the lists of Fable II and Fable III clothing. Moreover, each piece of clothing can raise “cross-dressing” or “transvestism stats” depending on the gender of the player-character, as shown in the charts on this page. NPC responses to a player-character’s crossdressing, however, can vary, as discussed here.
