First I’d like to state, for all those who lack real intelligence and decided to make scene (and urban dictionary at that) a deprecating hell-hole, that none of those belittling words about this trend is true. Scene is a fashion trend, in the era of 2000, that is, for the most part, inspired by a retro 1980s indie look. What does this consist of? Primarily this means most scene kids (estimating 98%) are defined by: skinny jeans, band t-shirts, hoodies, miniskirts, leggings, bullet belts, name brand clothes/handbags, skateboarding apparel (fur-hood parkas, skate brand t-shirts etc), wristbands of various designs (usually those plastic bracelets), Converse, and Vans (mainly slip-ons).

Along with the stuff I mentioned above scene kids are also, roughly by 25%, a branch from another trend (that you all know of) known as Emo. This means, along with the defined above, scene kids are also defined by: skinny jeans (mainly black and also tighter), band t-shirts (tight as well), studded belts, snakebite piercings, and black horn-rimmed glasses. Now please don’t get the two trends confused. What males them different, for the most part, is the fact emo kids are known to be depressed/sad (for some strange reason) while scene kids are the opposite.

From reading above you’re 50% on your way to knowing what being scene really is. Scene kids, like emo kids, are fixed around the color black though scene kids are also fixed around bright colors too (as in neon). Scene kids have fads, mean things that come and go, that include: having a profile on multiple social networks (myspace, bebo, etc), being a vegetarian, text talk (l33t style) and being straight-edge. While 98% scene kids do this, this is NOT required to be scene.

What really makes you scene is your hairstyle and your music. Now I’m not telling you to just go and change what you listen to for scene reasons (because what you like is what you like), though I do prefer listening to bands that are also scene. As a scene kid it is a must that you go to shows (as in concerts), even if the band isn’t mainstream or you don’t know the band (meaning local and unheard of). Lastly KNOW YOUR MUSIC; it’s a must. Scene hairstyles are mostly straightened (and dyed black) and choppy (as in cut with razor comb) and has bright dye in certain parts (some temp, some perm).

Now to finally clear it EVERYTHING! Saying your scene doesn’t make you a poser. If someone ask, you say “Yeah I’m Scene”. This is to prevent people stereotyping you calling you a liar and hypocrite (for calling people posers of scene when your scene too). Changing overnight doesn’t make you a poser; clothes are clothes and a trend is a trend. To finalize this, being scene is like being a preppy kid or a goth kid. It all revolves around fashion (clothes and music). I want to state just because you follow a trend doesn’t mean you change your personality. Be yourself, there is only one of you.
no example needed, everyone is different. Scene Kid is a Scene Kid, regardless of there race or religion. That's a fact. D:

scene kids are just people like everyone else. they like a lot of bands people havent heard of, and wear clothes a lot of people dont accept. i dont see the big deal if someone is head to toe in hollister merch or head to toe in a thrift store merch what the difference is isnt clear to me. if everyone looked the same i would vomit. people are different and dress different and wear different clothes because we have different PERSONALITIES. there are no 2 people with the same personalities so there are no 2 people that have the same exact tastes and if they do they are FAKE.
ignorant persons thought:
those fucking scene kids dont know how to dress. they are wanna be abercrombie zombies

scene kids thoughts:
i wonder when from first to last is playing, why is that preppy girl giving me dirty looks?

"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.
Morgen Murder: wdup brah?
Catherine Catalyst: nadaaa grrrl. sup @ you?
Tony Terror: hey grrrlz!
Morgen Murder: omfg, he is soo hawt. lawlz.
Catherine Catalyst: I KNOW! LOL!
Tony Terror: yaaaa baby. r u going to the show tonight? it should be hella tuff.

Catherine Catalyst: IK! but he is too scene to admit it!

Scene Kid = Chav/Townie + Emo/Goth

my reasons why.
A typical Scene Kid boy will be wearing
-Skinny Jeans
-Tight colourful t-shirt
-New Era hat
-Nike Airforce 1's
Scene Kids, wear apparel of sport brands (usually Nike or Adidas Originals) and various other famous brands (Vans checkered shoes, or band t-shirts). Scene kids are happy fellows unlike Emos, of whom most scene kids detest. But scene kids have some emo traits, like dyed hair (not usually black but can be), skinny jeans, straightened hair, piercings - SCENE KIDS DO NOT CUT THEMSELVES!

Popular Scene Kid Traits
- myspace
- pokemon (or some other old fashion)
- going to gigs/concerts
- hanging around town centres
- talking weird or pretending they're gangster

Scene Kids will say things like
"you are the sex"
"myspace me fer-sure"

Typical music interests for scene kids:
- trancecore
- hardcore
- grime
- nu rave
bands could include:
bring me the horizon
from first to last
Scene Kid Boy: 'liek omfgzzz im going to see bmth tonite will be fxckin br00t4l!'

Scene Kid Girl: 'WOWW thats liek bare orgasmic tbh'

it is unfair to say that scene kids are "gay" or other derogatory terms like that. they are not rude, as one might have said on here, well not as rude as any other person.
i know a few scene kids, and i can asure you they are as normal as you and me...they just look different.
a scene girls hair: has choppy (mostly black) hair. other colors mixed in are common, like hot pink, red, blonde. little girl bows, and bangs at an angle covering one eye.
clothes: are usually more diverse. black and brilliant colors (i suppose a lot like the hair).
slip on shoes (mostly checkered), or converse. black/ white studded belt. sometimes multiple belts.
make up: eye liner is a must BLACK EYELINER and lots of it. bright shades of eyeshoadow usually. sometimes stars on the face.

...that is the style of a scene girl, but the idea of being "scene" is usually knowing a lot about the local music scene. thus, the many band shirts and death grip on their ipod.
favoring unknown bands, and not wanting you to know about them, sayong they began some scene revolution style, and getting pissy when they are copied in makeup or anything, are annoying traits that most all scene kids carry. not to mention that almost everything they do is "hardXcore" and that YOU are always a poser, if you say you even like dinosaurs.
they must have a myspace, become picture whores, and
scene grl #1: "did you see that girls hair?"
scn grl #2: "yea, the girl with the black and pink hair with the bows in it?"
#1: "yea, she is such a poser. i was the first one to even wear those at this school!"
#2: "no i was!"
#1: "we are so scene kids."
#2: "we are so the sexx."
