Emo kids are usually picked on, or mocked. In fact, kids who get mocked for being emo may not even be emo. Prime example, at school i have two freinds. They spend there lunchtimes singing to Panic! and MCR (badly i must say, but they are entertaining) due to this, our table at school has been branded the "emo table" oooookay. Theres no logic in that! I mean, we all like listening to rock music (thus that may be why we have our brand -emo table) but whatever!
Noooow. If you wanna find a TRUE emo kid, lets look for the common signs, no? (boys)
. Usually long hair that covers an eye. Sometimes also be spiked at the top. Usually dyed black, or can be brown. (Emo boy hair is hawt <3)
. Black eyeliner. Yep, emo boys wear eyeliner XD
. Heavy rimmed glasses, usually black. Classed as "nerd glasses
. Tight t shirts that may have a symbolic meaning. Also they usually wear a black hooded jumper with a band logo on the back
. A messenger bag with pin badges of bands up the strap
. Maybe skinny jeans designed for woman...
. Ever converse all star or vans
. Wrist bands
-Clothing is about the same for emo girls.
Right, and btw all emo kids DONT cut themselves! JEEEZ
ANNOYING EMO KID: those kids who regularly max out daddy's credit card at hot topic and tell everyone how depressed they are and that they cut their arms up every night wanting to die (ok...where are the scars?). they only listen to 'underground' bands adn immediately stop when someone they think is popular or preppy starts to listen to them, or they see them on mtv (which they claim never to watch, but they still do). they intentionally do stupid and rebellious things trying to make authority figures mad, thinking it's cool. these people are attention-craving, tasteless, abnoxious emo kids. anything popular is completely disregarded to them. they also tell ppl that they think drugs are sooooooooooo cool, but are scared to do them, but do them anyway because they think it'll make them cool
ANNOYING EMO KID: the guy who draws on a bruise to make ppl think his dad hits him and who only talks to other ANNOYING EMO KIDS
What is the point of my life?
I hate everything.
TRUE EMO KID was most likely emo before this was a stupid fad. May shop at hot topic, but only if they actually like the clothing, not because they think it will make them look cool. Probably classified by friends and others as "emo"...the label is often not self-professed in the case of the true emo kid. Doesn't give a shit whether music is mainstream or not...it just has to be artistic.
2) The style of clothing stereotypically worn by fans of emo music. This consists of, in general: tight band t-shirts or vintage 80's t-shirts, longer (messy) hair often died black, tight (usual girl's) pants, shoes by Vans or Converse, messenger bags, anything checkered (usually black-and-white or black-and-pink), studded belts, thick-framed glasses, neckties, etc.
(Note: girl emo kids often cut their hair short in the back and angled down in the front, less often died black)
3) The mood that stereotypically displays being an emo kid. They are generally considered the subculture of high-school, and while sometimes referred to as manic depressive or "cutters," are usually quite social. Very romantic, often downtrodden. More realistically, teenagers who listen to heavy music and have no qualms with displaying their emotions. (ie, don't feel the need to prove themselves as "bad-@$$," like many rock fans.)
