Ok the proper definition of an Emo kid, I can give. Now a real Emo kid (not a poser) wears w/e they feel like, mostly it can be tight jeans (girls) and tight clothes in general and might have a piercing or two and usually wear all black with black hair. however Emo kids could dress just like normal people, or sometimes even wear more gothic than Emo clothes really creating a little emo/goth mix trend. Emo’s almost always have their hair in their face, at least covering one eye, most times both. Emo kids usually listen to love songs, sad music, and now and then some modern; they also like metal now and then. now all the hype about Emo kids cutting themselves can be true, cutting in a way is very addicting, pulling the Emo kid, into more depression and anger from the cutting causing them to cut more (the depressing music only makes this worse) and some Emo kids don’t cut at all (however most do, simply out of depression) emo's are very passionate kind, and understand the world a lot more than any stuck up prep, rocker, ect. And can be very romantic, usually they have hobbies such as: writing poetry,
Listening to music.
Emo kids usually don’t have many friends and may seem quiet or shy but are actually some of the most social people you'll know once you meet one.
(All these depend on how Emo the subject in question is)
Fact - Emo aren't Emo because they are despised, they are despised because they are Emo.
Fact - Emo’s try to be different...
Fact - The Emos' inner turmoil stems from one crushing fact. They purport to only want to go out in the rain - to hide the tears that stream endlessly down their faces - yet the rain messes up their "ridiculously cool" hair - what to do? You can see the harm this kind of problem inflicts...
Fact - Tell an Emo that you and everyone else understands and cares and they will have a breakdown (depending on how Emo they are)
(Most of this r disputed)
Myth - Emos can't walk outside if there is sunlight, that's why they all have this white skin and dark hair. (May be true at times)

Black as well usually cover anywhere from 3/5 of the face to all of their face, they usually try to hide their eyes so no one can see how they feel.
(Emo kids r also usually very sensitive)
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.)
