"Scene" is a sort of subgenre, a mixture of emo and preppy. You can usually spot a scene kid from miles away by their bright, attractive eyeliner/hair colors. Scene boys and scene girls both wear tight girl jeans; usually of the drainpipe variety. Scene girls are often found in attractively arranged if not totally random outfits, which consist of tight jeans, cute tee shirts or thermals with things like hello kitty, the teenage mutant ninja turtles, or power rangers on them. Vans slip ons, usually checkered, make up the majority of their footwear, as well as ballet flats, and just plain flats. Occasionally, wedges, too. Their outfits vary from person to person; vintage sweaters and vests are also popular, as well as tight, gray or black zip up hoodies. And band tee shirts are a must, mostly for metal bands, however, with incomprehensible writing on them and some drawing of a person being eviscerated, and the like. White studded belts are also popular. They also wear large, chunky necklaces, pearls, et cetera.

For boys, it's pretty much the same, however, instead of flats, they're inclined to wear skate shoes, and large "gangster" hats are popular as well. Both genders tend to have lots of piercings, such as a septum, monroe, and the less popular septum. Mostly, they've got a piercing on one side of their lip, and gauges in their ears. Scene boys hair is more often a plain color, such as black or red or brown, as opposed to the myriad of colors that girls can covet. Both usually possess choppy, over-one-eye hairstyles, though they sometimes have mod bangs, too.

Boys can wear eyeliner, though it isnt as encouraged as it is in the emo culture, and girls wear as much or as little as they please. Scene girls are also pretty obsessed with designer labels, such as Chanel and Dolce & Gabanna. Also, both can be seen wearing clothes from stores such as Hollister and Abercrombie. Sidekick 3's are very often used by scene kids. Scene boys are usually a lot less nice than scene girls, though, obviously, it depends on the person. Straight edge is becoming less and less trendy, though a lot of scenesters still are. Christianity and vegetarianism are both pretty trendy, however.

Emo kids and scene kids are completely different, and are not to be confused. Scene kids are more into the 'local scene,' and to the majority of them, music means everything. They'll always be spotted at local shows, concerts, coffeeshops, etc. Scene girls are usually obsessed with fashion, and fashion magazines (i.e. Vogue, and Teen Vogue). Fake eyelashes are also highly associated with scene girls, and they often shave off their eyebrows and pencil them on. Why, you ask? Nobody knows. False nails, and being extremely pale are pretty scene as well. Also, scene kids will always, always, always deny that they are scene. That's one of the many ways you can spot a poseur. After all, real scene kids are too scene to admit that they're scene.

Energy drinks are also highly popular with them, as well as Glaceau Vitamin Water. They also are prone to saying things such as "wdup blud," and "lawlz." Pretending to be a gangster is a big part of the scene image, and many scene kids even listen to rap. But it doesn't make them any less scene! Scene kids always have a myspace, or a xanga, or a facebook, or all three, as well. Their myspace display names are usually something along the lines of "______ Murder," "______ Homicide," etc, etc, though it varies with the person.

Myspace pages of theirs are often filled with songs that used to be popular, (i.e. Tainted Love, All the Small Things, and old rap songs-- you get the picture) and numerous photographs of their favorite designer logo, their alcoholic beverage of choice, and their cell phone. Hello Kitty is also highly popular with girls, as well as coloring books, black and white photographs, and a cityscape photograph. For boys, they often have pictures of admiring scene girls who make them signs, banners for bands that they like, and an energy drink they love.

in conclusion, scene kids r rad! lolz.

Someone, girl or guy, who likes to dress and listen to certain music like the rest of the scene kids.clothing consists of bandanas, bows, lots of accessories, band t-shirts, tight jeans, leopard print, etc.
Music is usually angst-y, something along the lines of skinny puppies/from first to last.
Pretty much a pathetic excuse of a life, pretend that their non'conformists when they have really been conforming in some way all along.. hmm. makes ya think.
FUCK YOU.
example. scene kids
*scene girl* Omg. Lets all go get t-shirts with bands or old school pokemon/dinosaurs/hello kitty and be rad and have lame-ass names, such as kayla-Rawr, and dye our hair every two weeks because we need to have a different edge all the time, and get piercings and think lower of the so called "conformists", even though we are all dressing the same, and listening to the same music, and acting the same.. hmm.. EXCEPT! We can't say we're scene. Or else we really won't be scene, cause then we won't get any scene points... then we won't have anything to do with our lives. D:
ohmigod. i'm out of HAIRSPRAY!! Now what the fuck can i do?!?!

like an emo, only without the cutting and with the addition of some dnb/grime.
scene kids ususally have hair of atleast two different colours, kids jewelery, skinnys and are incredably annoying when in large groups.

1. An emo clone in denial. The term was created by emo clones who were embarassed and tired of being called "emo." There is absolutely no difference between emo clones and scene kids except those refering to themselves as "scene kids" tend to be older; emo trendies who are old enough to drive.

2.
I am not emo! Even though I look and act like every other emo clone in the world, I am a scene kid! See my driver's license?

Topic to cause drama on UD.

Random person posts long diatribe that basically amounts to
"Sene kidz r ghey lOL"

Scenekid posts response: "We're not all assholes, but...yadda yadda... maybe you're just jealous". This should be read as "I'll feign indignance and keep up my holier-than-thou attitude to look cool on LOL_THE_INTERNET."

The real truth is that arrogance, ignorance, prejudce, elitism, and ageism (scene KID?) are all horrible things that both parties are guilty of.

This topic is it's own example of how user-defined term "scene kids" caused drama on itself on ur.. fucking TIME PARADOX

Scene kids, like everyone else, follow trends.
Most of the stuff people say is true and most of the 'scene' kids admit they try to be scene.
They may go out and buy hundreds of dollars worth of clothes just to look scene.
Most scene kids shop at Hot Topic, Delia*s, and Journeys.
I see lots of scene kids every day, and this is usually what they have and how they look..

Scene girl must-haves:
-short,layered haircut
-extentions (in case a guy hates short hair)
-black and light blonde hair
-black chipped nail polish
-bright colored bows
-clothes with stars/hearts on them
-fur trimmed jacket
-tight,destroyed designer jeans
-other scene chick friends
-hot scene boyfriend
-iPod
-skimmers AKA doll shoes
-white studded belt hanging off the hips
-monroe ring
-flashy earrings
-mispell their name on myspace. IE: Susie - Siouxsie

Scene boy must-haves:
-extremely choppy haircut
-black colored hair with blond or red
-tightly fitting shirts
-black or white studded belt
-tight jeans with boxers pulled up too high
-bandana in the back pocket
-lip ring/snake bites
-vans shoes

In addition, they all have to go to lots and lots of local shows and hang out in their little cliques when they go. Most of the guys hardcore dance, or atleast attempt and get made fun of. They also must have more than 1000 myspace friends to be considered 'cool.'
Siouxsie: Are you going to the show tonight, Timmeigh?
Timmy: Of course, all the scene kids will be there.

the ever popular "scene kid".
go on myspace and you will get real life examples of a countless amount. with enough pictures for your mind to blur with the same repetitive images of bad hair, horrible photography (that they perceive to be "artistic") taken from horrible angles, ugly hair clips, anorexic boys, fake girls, tight pants, and wayyy too much eyeliner.
scene kids can usually be found at the local mall, spending their rich white parents' money on things that are ever-so-"kewl" at the moment and will make them all the more hxc. they also flock to shows and concerts like a black person to a pack of menthols.
scene kids are under the impression that they are way cooler and better than anyone who is not "with the scene". the boys enjoy kissing each other for attention. the girls enjoy giving the attention. the boys whine too much, but then again.. so do the girls.
they use slang such as "kthx" "rawr" and other unoriginal lingo that i don't care enough to elaborate on. they find it amusing to poo-poo anything not in the scene. they find it ABSOLUTELY hilarious to make fun of anything ghetto/rap/gang related.
scene kids will do anything to fit in. they pretend not to care, even though we all know how much time they spend fixing their multicolored hair.
some advice for the scene kids; boys- eat something, stop wearing makeup, and PLEASE stop shopping in the girl's department. girls- suck up your insecurities, lay the concert tees to rest, and get a hair color that actually suits you.
"wow. i'm going to be a kewl scene kid, say i'm original and impersonate every other god damn unoriginal teenager on the god forsaken website called myspace and take a shit load of pictures of myself and my hair with my expensive digital camera! don't you <3 my hxc hairband and all new tight pants? kthx. weRd."
