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.
its over. way over. but something else is bound to come a long to fill that gap
emo dude. *sighs* im sooooooo emo
normal person. dude its over

Emo is often confused with Emotional Sensitivity, and is more often linked to boys then girls, because of the so very 'unmanly' manner in which an emo boy acts.
Male emotional senstivity is a guy who does not feel the urge to be a macho pea-brained asshole whos only emotion is arrogance and violent anger. A sensitive male realizes that guys can cry, and say the word 'beautiful'. They can also like flowers and admit that there are other guys out there that are hot, and do lots of other 'gay' things while completely content with their heterosexuality.
(an interesting thing about this is that it is quite ok for girls to sit on each other's lap and hug and go to the washroom together etc etc and not be considered homosexual, but if a guy strikes up a random conversation on the bus with another guy, he's a faggot.)

This being said, an EMO (short for emotional) is someone (guy or girl) who has taken the dark, evil, brooding, shadowy and mysterious genre that goes by the name of goth, and mutilated it into a subculture of whiney sniveling teenagers. An emo is someone who dresses very similar to a goth, wearing makeup and black clothes, but is easily defined often by the lopsided swooping haircut that causes them to be half blind all the time.
A goth makes you uncomfortable standing next to them on a long bus ride, and if done right are dark and creepy and cool looking. Take the band Type O Negative, for example.

Emos most of the time have a look of eternal sorrow pasted on their face, and spend their time whining because life is so tragically devestating and heartwrenching. They cry and snivel and cut themselves to gain attention, as opposed to the noble masochistic origin of the hobby. When you see an emo you will want to puke because of how synthetically pretty and childish they look, and then drop kick them.

Emos have ruined the very normal practice that is talking about emotionally hard times to someone close.

"How are you today?"
'Well, to be honest, I feel really lonely. I sit at home more than I'd like and don't really have
(m)any friends. *shrugs apathetically*'
"zOMG... Don't be so emo..."
'...You asked how I was. I am telling you honestly how I am feeling.'
"EMO. Cry me a river... *emo tear*"

This video will familiarize you instantly to what an emo is, if you are still confused in any way: (again, remove any spaces)

ME: why the f u c k do you think that Green Day is emo? Do they dress like emos? NO!!!!!

Do they have emo lyrics? Well if you think that "when masturbation's lost its fun, you're fu c kin g lazy" is emo, then their lyrics are soooo emo =)))

Or this one is a "great" example of emo lyrics, it's from the song called "burnout"
" I THREW MY EMOTIONS IN THE GRAVE - HELL WHO NEEDS THEM ANYWAY "
..... ............. ............. .............. .........
F U C K, GREEN DAY IS NOT EMO!!! THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT EMO SHIT!!!
correctly: Green Day is the greatest rock band in the world right now.
incorrectly: Green Day is great emo band.

Emos wear makeup and cry lots. They claim that they aren't scared to be themselves. If this was true they would admit they are useless would stop acting depressed. Maybe then they would get a little more respect. When they aren't getting their asses kicked, they get drunk and have sex with dead animals. Emo guys will do anything to make themselves look like a faggot. Some of these dipshits even claim to be straight. Emo's think people give a shit about some stupidass emotional trauma they suffer from. They have greasy hair and they usualy suck.
Spliffy - Hey Emo Kid, makeup is for homo's!
Emo Kid - Lots of straight people wear makeup
Spliffy - No they don't
Emo Kid - You're right, I suck and you're better than me.
