An Emo girl dresses in their own way of expression. They don't care what people think because it's what she likes.

EMO ATTIRE:: What I usually wear...

1} A black t-shirt with mcr on it or sometimes a shirt with my favorite superhero or cartoon.
2} A studded belt with hearts and diamonds on it. Dark denim, straight legged, jeans. When I wear knee pants, I always wear funky socks. Mostly they have stripes on them, but sometimes I wear socks with Jack the Pumpkin King (from Tim Burton's "A Nightmare Before Christmas") on them.
3} I usually wear converse shoes. I mismatch the colors though. On one foot I wear red and the other black...depending on the colors in my shirt. I also wear vans sometimes.
4} On my left arm I wear an armband with polka dots on it. On my right arm I wear tons of different color hair bands. My nails are usually black...but sometimes I mismatch them like my shoes.

HAIR::

My hair is short like a boy (not too short). My bangs are long and cover my right eye. I have spikes in my hair. My main color is black. My spikes are red and orange (so when I spike them it looks like fire.) Then I have red, blonde, and violet highlights in my bangs and some in the very back.

1} Hair must cover one eye. (sometimes it irritates my eye)
2} Hair can be any color(s). Express yourself in your hair. First timers get it done at a salon so the stylist can give you tips on how to do it, hair color to buy, etc. (it costs about 80 dollars to get it done at a salon.)

MAKE-UP::

My make-up consists of: powder, black eyeliner and dark gray eyeshadow.

1} Eyeliner is a must to get the Emo look. Use black eyeliner and put it on top and bottom (but not too much). If you can't put it on top then just put it on the bottom. Just as long as you have it on.
2} Eyeshadow can be any color. Sometimes it looks awesome if you wear it underneath your eye as well.
3} Don't wear too much powder. You can wear blush but it's unnecessary. If you want to look pale then exclude blush. ALWAYS put blush on before you put powder on. Unless you are using liquid foundation, then put blush on afterwards.

1 thing I want to let you know:: Emos NEVER say Oh My God or Oh my Gosh...Poser Emos and Preps do.

Prep boy: Hey cutter, you're outfit is so ugly.

Emo girl: My outfit is the art of who I am.

Prep boy: Come on raccoon eyes get over it!

Emo girl: I have nothing to get over. I am happy with who I am and if you don't like it...then I don't give a freak. Oh, and I don't cut. *shows wrists*

Emo girl walks away with a smile and puts headphones on her ears. Prep boy goes back with his buddies and they laugh.

Emos don't care what others think.
Usually a white person, their activites include cutting, crying, writing poetry, and doing non-people things. When sad can be really really depressed. Emos' can also be used for curb stomps. (teeth pressed lightly on a curb, while another person rapidly steps on back of head. Leading to emo with no teeth.)
Hey! Look at that emo! lets go curb stomp him. :]

People who usually think, "I suck. Life sucks. Time to cut my wrist," or something to that matter. They are usually cast away by society, and people look down upon them.
Cho Seung Hil, the Virgina Tech shooter was an emo

Someone who is very emotional. They dress however they want to dress, and they don't always slit their wrists and want to shoot themselves. A lot of emo people just write poetry to deal with life. And just to make a note, emos are not posers. You don't choose to be emo. Emo chooses you. In my opinion, the emo haters need to get to know emo kids before trashing them.

It's also a genre of music.
I am emo, and I don't slit my wrists or want to kill myself. I write poetry to deal with the crappy hand life has dealt me.

It's not people who cut themselves, or hate themselves and life. Not people who dress in skinny jeans with hair over their eye and band tee's. Emo came from emotive music and people began saying things like they cut themselves or all they do is cry, when that style became popular. Emo is really just a style of music that has meaning to it. Instead of things like 'Can't Be Tamed by Miley Cyrus' that has no depth, there is songs like 'Miserable At Best by Mayday Parade' that has depth. Basically, emo came about to label people who have a sensitive side.
Typical stereo type.
Person #1- That guy is wearing skinny jeans and isn't smiling, he must be emo.
Person #2- Yeah. He probably cuts himself every night.
*Person 1 and 2 start laughing*

A type of music that angsty teens listen to while they pretend to cut themselves.

Not hard enough to be called Punk but not bubble gum enough to be called pop. Imagine if Punk, Pop, and a little bit Goth got together and had a child. Emo is what you would get every time because it takes a little bit of everything.

Just take one band and switch the names around and you basically have every emo band imaginable. The same whiny sounding lead singer, the same sounding guitar solos, the same lyrics just in a different order.
Those people who say that My Chemical Romance is emo don't know the physiological level there music is really on. Wow, those guys are so deep and bruting.

Emo. There are many diffrent types of emos. I would know, I happen to be "emo". Here is a list of the diffrent types of emos:

The Fake Emo(Known as the "Wannabee Emo"): These kids listen to Teenagers over and over and wear black, dye their hair black and sometimes (NOT ALL THE TIME, DONT STEROTYPE DAMMIT) cut themselves so that they seem emo. These kids are not emo. They are annoying and make a bad name for the "true" emo.

The Real Emo: This is someone who probably has some sort of tragedy happen, such as parents being alcoholics or being depressed because of a mental condition (Personal Experience). These kids should not be made fun of because many of them are going through extremely hard times. But, sadly, there are people who don't even bother to look and see that these people may really be in trouble! Heck, its very hard to find a real emo because most of them are in the closet about their emoness.

The Real, Hardcore Emo: These are the worst. These are the emos that have been real for close to a month and they begin to nosedive. They cut deeper and they become increasingly mean to freinds at school or to people in the workplace. They may also start burning or pinching or some other form of Self-Injury. These kids should NEVER be made fun of. They are, many times, mentally unstable and many will attempt or have many thoughts about killing themselves. If you know about someone that is cutting or talking of suicide, they are becomeing a hardcore emo, and they have a slight chance of living.

Please, don't make fun of emo. It's just cruel. I was made fun of as an emo, and then I went to a rebalitaion center for a month, which felt like jail. I was set up with a professional and finally got back to normal. I'm taking perscribtion meds to feel better. Emo isn't a joke. It can be dangerous.
The Fake Emo:

Faker: Dude, I'm so depressed today! I wanna cut and cry to MCR!!
Normal People: You wannabee fucktard. Get real or go pretend some more.

The Real Emo:
Real Emo: I wish my parents wouldn't fight, they make me so sad, and I don't have anyone to talk to.
Normal Person: Dude, that sucks!
Ignorant Person*: HAHA!! EMO!! YOU SUCK!! GO SLIT YOUR WRISTS AND DIE YOU FUCKING EMO!!!!1!!!!

The Hardcore Emo:
Hardcore: I can't take this man, I'm so sick and I want to kill myself. I can't take the pain.
Normal: Dude, get help!! Don't kill yourself!
Ignorant Person: HAHA!! EMO!! YOU SUCK!! GO SLIT YOUR WRISTS AND DIE YOU FUCKING EMO!!!!1!!!!
