Yeah, indie kids all look the same.
But so do all emo kids, scene kids, ghetto fab. kids, american eagle snobs, hardXcore freaks, granola hemp queens, preps, jocks, posers of all sorts, etc.
If you find something you love (music, fashion, etc.) then you stick with it.
Most Indie kids are "indie" cause they have their own style/fashion, just like the bands they listen to (not having a huge record label).

Lay off, fuckers.
Get a life; find something you love and stick with it.

JESUS.

To my understanding an indie kid is someone who is not afraid to show their individuality. Generally, they dress in vintage or thrift store clothing, wear moccasins, or really anything that isn't quite main stream.

They also listen to mainly music that is classified under "indie rock" or "alternative". Typically signed by an independent music label.

Some bands that they commonly listen to are Death Cab For Cutie( a band popular amongst others that aren't indie), Of Montreal, Little Man Tate, Bromheads Jacket, Mumm-Ra, ect.

Though, that is not the only music they listen to, and usually they aren't completely against large labels despite the fact that many people like to make it seem this way.

Don't confuse a true indie kid with a poser or hipster (if that is what you prefer to refer to them as)

Hipsters like to advertise their individuality by going against anything completely main stream
Indie Kid: Wow! I really love Milburn, don't you?

Hipster: Yeah, they are so indie and different! Not like that crap that Katy Perry tries to sell.

Indie Kid: Uhmm... Okay, I kinda enjoy Katy Perry as well.

Hipster: Well, her music is the same as everyone else's! You're not a real indie kid!

Indie Kid: Alright then.

indie kids are usually witty and sarcastic, they may come across as mean, but theyre really actually good people. If you ask an indie kid if theyre emo you will DIE. no joke, they will kill you for saying such a thing, because indies hate emos and hate it when people mix them up. They listen to bands most kids have never heard of, like arcade fire, spoon, vampire weekend, blur, etc. and wouldnt be caught dead listening to mainstream music. Theyre usually really smart but dont advertise it, and like to read. They are really original and dont hang out exclusively with indies, but they like to have at least one friend who shares their tastes. Music is a huge part of their lives, as is art. i acted like this even before i started getting called "indie" so trust me, i know.
Normal kid: hey lets listen to teach me how to dougie

Indie kid: are you kidding me? im sorry but that has no style, its just generic rap. we should listen to modest mouse.

Normal kid: nah thats crap

Indie kid: wow you dont appreciate music

A teen who stays out of the usual popular trends and looks at finding and making their own trends. Indie kids are sometimes thought of as hippies because the way they dress is bright or earthy toned. most of these people wear many bracelets and are very creative or artsy. They are very motivated and passionate. Indie kids are very real people who will be very real with you. They enjoy listening to alternative music and "indie music" and love the outdoors and nature. Sometimes they can be loners but are often friends with other indie kids due to similar interests. Very cool people worth befriending.
Guy1: wow that girl is so unique! and i love her bracelets
Guy2: i bet she makes them herself. shes an indie kid

This is my definition of an Indie Kid, it might not be yours, but in my opinion it fits us perfectly.

Indie Kids are practically hipsters, just not assholes.
You don't have to have hipster-ish characteristics to be an Indie Kid though, you can just be anyone who isnt a prep, or scene kid, or even hipster; Sort of like someone in the middle. I think thats one of the reasons why we are Indie (Independent) kids. Even though i am practically contradicting my previous sentence, practically anyone can be an indie kid, as long as they're cool. By cool i don't mean good looking or popular, i mean cool as in great personality, fun to be around, good friend, etc.

are original, dont conform, be fake , etc.

likes lots of music, not just indie,
even though we are called *Indie* Kids.

I wrote this so people would hear what an indie kid is from an indie kid's own perspective, and not from someone else who hates on us cause they're ignorant and get us mixed up with hipsters. I personally don't really label myself as an indie kid, but thats what people call me and thats who my friends are so, whatever. There could be more things i could put down to describe an indie kid besides these.
"Yeah dude, you're totally an indie kid, you are original and cool, which is all you really need to be to be one."

Listen to bands you've probably never heard of.

Wear clothes from thrift stores including cheap striped shirts, anything with animals on them, scarves, and faded tight jeans.

Have polaroid pictures of themselves on their Myspace.
Indie kid: Does this horribly faded wolf shirt from the 80's look terrible on me?

Clerk: Sure does.

Indie kid: Cool, I'll take it.

People usually associate Indie Kids with Hipsters and Scene Kids, but they're pretty different.

Indie Kids enjoy music put out by alternative rock bands and bands/artists who aren't signed to a major record label/no label at all. These can include bands such as: Bloc Party, Muse, Coldplay, Nirvana, Radiohead, Fleet Foxes, Franz Ferdinand, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, The Cure, The Black Keys and The Maccabees.

They also enjoy artwork similar to what you'd find on their

favourite band's album covers.

Their clothing can be described as vintage, old fashioned, messy and sometimes just, plain.

Indie Boys have woopy or curly/messy hair. They're usually are seen wearing band t-shirts or plain shirts and t-shirts. They also wear loose, black or blue denim jeans and converse/white Lonsdale trainers. The might also wear hats like Pete Doherty of The Libertines/Babyshambles.
Indie Girls usually have with long, wavy hair often wearing some form of headband. They are usually seen wearing either: loose t-shirts and waistcoats, baggy woolly jumpers or baggy crop tops with band logos or flamboyant patterns on them.
Indie boys are often seen as being shy and quiet.
Indie girls are often seen as shy at times, yet energetic at times.
Indie Girl-"Rawr! I'm a dinosaur :P"
Indie Boy-"Um... Ok."

Person A-Did you see those too people?
Person B-Yes. They were just talking about Kasabian and Foo Fighters
Person A-They seem pretty fond of each other.
Person B-They're probably just Indie Kids

An Indie kid is a middle schooler or high schooler who is an intellectual, deep person who can appreciate art and other things that others may not. And because of this the kid is misunderstood and probably not popular. The word Indie in this context refers to Indie music which is defined by being thought provoking and intelligent but don't be fooled indie is a form of rock and often has electronic influence. Indie kids are most often artistic in one way or another. Wether it be music, drawing, painting or some other form. The Indie kid probably wears dark clothes converse shoes (aka chucks). But the indie kid really does not care what others think of his cloths. At this point you may be getting the Indie Kid Confused with hipsters. The main differences are age(hipsters are between 20 and 30). The other is fashion Hipsters are a lot more vintage with there style. Indies ware converse shoes to but don't let this confuse you. INDIE KIDS ARE A LOT LESS FASHION OBSESSED THAN HIPSTERS ANT INDIES PROBABLY DONT GIVE A SHIT.
Pop kid: Hey do you listen to Katy Perry
Hipster: Eww She Sucks I HAte HER
Indie kid: Yeah I dont like her either. I really don't pop music, but i see why people can get into it. I don't Know just not for me.
Hipster:hmm
Popstar:WTF
