Unlike "Scene" or "Emo", Base is for the more individual. The general characteristics of someone of the genre "Base" are; An unhealthy obsession with shoes, Outrageous hair/makeup, Bubbly personality, Enjoyment of computer games, Love of the arts, Enjoys the smell of hairspray in the morning, Enjoys a hot latte, Abnormal eating/drinking habits, Has/wants piercings and or tattoos, retro and outlandish clothing... MUST like Hot Chip (:
