Anonymous asked: I'm absolutely in love with Rockabilly style and music and I always feel so comfortable when I dress like that but as much as I want to leave my house dressed that way I want to dress, I always sort of chicken out and go back to dressing 'normal' and it's really beginning to bug me because I don't feel comfortable. I don't know I just feel as if you'd maybe be the right person to help me because I really admire you and somewhat base what I wear on your outfits. (I really hope that's not creepy)
theres really no way to solve that. other than by working on your confidence. why dont you feel comfortable dressing rockabilly in public.? do you get a negative reaction.?? ~ Ive never had negative reactions to my rockabilly style, nothing like when i was goth in my teens haha ~ .xx
savage-genetics asked: I think if you like just one aspect of a trend, your´re not part of it. I listen Phychobilly and Rockabilly, but i also like other styles of music. So i don't go around calling myself Rockabilly, yeah i like the fashion too, but for my this type of style is a way of living. The same if you're Grunge, Goth, Metalhead, etc. I wil prefer describe my style as my own personal one, than say i'm part of this trend, when i'm really not. Sorry for the bad english.
I agree with you :) but i do listen to music other than rockabilly. Just i listen to rockabilly most of the time. I agree it is much like calling yourself a metalhead when you dont like metal at all :p ~

Anonymous asked: what do you have against people who just like it for the fashion??
listen to the music or accept that you’re not a rockabilly, you’re just wearing rockabilly threads. ~ .x
ghoulieghoul replied to your post: I can feel myself slowly becoming more and more rockabilly as the days go on. Any advice for when I eventually join in the rockabilly scene? I dont know anyone with the same tastes.
Thats called elitism. I hate snobby people.
to be honest, it did get a little hard a couple seasons back to tell the difference between rockabilly fans and those going for the ‘pin up’ look. i can understand that older people might not realise people still like rockabilly as a subculture or music genre as well as the fashion ~

Well firstly, just be cautious that alot of people in the ‘scene’ can be a bit unfriendly. I personally have found this particularly with older folk as they think most of us are just in it for the fashion.
That’s my other advice. Clue up on lots of rockabilly / psychobilly artists cause when you talk to other rockabillies they like to throw in their most favourite obscure bands or ‘that’ artist who released that one song in the early 60s. hahah ~
I dont have any close rockabilly friends either.
