Were ashamed to admit it, but weve always admired cosplayers. Not for their taste or diet or personal hygiene but for their courage. You have to respect someone who proudly advertises his or her interests with no regard for the stigmatization that inevitably follows.
If youre a closeted rockabilly fan, take a page from the cosplayers handbook and drag your friends to F1 Race Factory for Tres Días Rockabilly Festival. Your ignorant pals may hear rockabilly and think hick, but after they check out righteous acts like Dick Dale, The Blasters, and Agent Orange, they might just change their minds.
