I don't actually know of any scene kids that talk like 'yEw aRe lyKE s0 hAwt <3XXX' as some examples have shown. From my experience of knowing/seeing scene kids (London is overpopulated with them), here are some basic How To Be A Scene Kid guidelines that you must follow in order to be defined as 'Scene':

THE CLOTHES/FOOTWEAR
1. Wear black drainpipe jeans (guys or girls) the lower slung the better
2. Ensure they show off your hipbones and the waistband of your boxers/girlboxers
3. Team your drainpipes with cutesey 'Punkrose' shoes or ballet shoes/converse/pink and black chequered vans (for girls) and Nike Dunks/chequered Vans slip ons/converse (for guys)
4. Wear youth/medium band t shirts (guys and girls) remember, the tighter the better!
5. Alternatively, girls may choose to wear short denim skirts over cut off black leggins with ballet shoes/converse
6. Ladies, team your kiddie tee with a long string of white pearls
7. Guys may choose to wear a bandana (or two?) either around their neck (or covering their mouth for a myspace picture) or alternatively tied around their wrist
8. In the colder weather, scene kids may choose to wear a youth/medium black band hoodie with their outfit, again the smaller the better!
9. These seem to be the most popular choices of clothing for London Scene kids, however naturally there will be variations.

THE HAIR
10. BOYS - it's all about the fringe that covers one eye. Scene hair tends to be black (often dyed) or dark brown with blonde bits or red bits or whatever coloured bits are scene at the time. So yes, the front tends to be nice and long and side swept and straightened and the back tends to be spiked up a little bit. Many scene boys opt for the 'messy' look aided with lots and lots of hair products. Some scene boys like to cut their hair themselves to give it that extra choppy look.
GIRLS - Girls tend to opt for the mullet look; extra short choppy layers at the top with long messy hair extensions down to their waist or whatever length they desire (although some scene girls are clever and grow the long bits themselves..well done!) Girls hair tends to be dark brown/black with sections bleached blonde. Like scene guys, scene girls like the messy 'fresh out of bed' look, again aided by mass amounts of hairspray and products.
A popular hair accessory for a scene girl is a bow or headband, which are mostly purchased from Claires Accessories (I have seen a certain pink bow in Claires on about fifty different scene girls..or maybe they were the same girl? Hard to tell..:P)

THE MYSPACE
11. yes, owning a Myspace account is ESSENTIAL. the layout of the myspace profile is up to the user, but most incorporate mass amounts of HTML
12. Stuck on what to write? Most scene kid myspace profiles involve the lines "my friends are better than yours" "i have the best friends in the world" "i smoke and drink too much" "i love to go to shows" "i want to leave this town" "kthnx" among other things
13. Stuck for a myspace name? Scene kids often use their own names written in capital letters, teamed with spaces and exclamation marks "H O L L Y !" and more often than not these names will be 'trademarked' or 'copyrighted' because of course they are incredibly original and must not be copied.
14. Scene kids always post pictures of their amazing friends on their profile, just to support their claim that their friends are better than ours.

THE MYSPACE PHOTOS!
15. Okay you are not a certified scene kid until you have myspace photos. Myspace photos are more often than not photoshopped to death and highly contrasted/very bright to hide the many flaws scene kids have (beneath their many layers of foundation and eye makeup, obviously) Most myspace photos are taken from above (holding the camera above you aimed down at you so you have a birdseye view of your messy hair, youth/medium tee, hipbones jutting out of the top of your tight jeans, and whatever shoes you happen to be wearing for the photograph)
16. Scene girls should always pout for photographs
17. Scene boys should snarl or growl for photographs
18. Hardcore scene girls should snarl or growl for photographs
19. Partially hide your face with your mass amount of hair
20. Some scene kids like to do 'cool' things like photograph themselves snorting cocaine. Whatever floats their boat.
21. Don't forget to add that Oh so Scene caption! "no photoshop, kthnx!"

THE MAKEUP
22. This section is not just for scene girls!
23. Scene boys and girls like to apply mass amounts of eyeliner..it is essential. Scene kids do not leave the house without it, and when applied you must ensure you apply as much of the stuff as your eyelids can support. Ditto with eyeshadow.
24. Scene girls like to cover their faces with foundation (for the oh so cool -not- "deadgirl" scene girl look, opt for a white foundation) and some scene girls finish their look with a sweep of blusher to compliment the 6 inches of pink eyeshadow weighing down their eyelids. How pretty!
25. Some Scene kids, usually of the "dead variety" like to apply concealer to their lips. Dead attractive.

THE MUSIC
26. This varies. Scene kids like to say they listen to hardcore, but nobody bats an eyelid when their profile song is 'Son of Dork - Ticket Outta Loserville'
27. Most Scene girls love McFLY and go to their shows (this is understandable, McFLY are hot)
28. Most Scene girls love Dougie from McFLY more than you do.
29. Scene Kids go to shows-a-plenty because they are hardcore gig goers by nature. Whether they go to watch the band or to flaunt their sceneness and scope fit scene kids with fringes is an entirely different matter altogether..

WHERE TO FIND A SCENE KID
30. Soho Square
31. H&M (they love it and buy all their clothes from there)
32. TopShop
33. Camden
34. Shows. In the queue, alongside the queue, you're bound to find many a scene kid hugging one another or standing with inverted feet and their hands in their pockets, or standing in a huddle holding a digital camera above their heads, posing for that photograph that will no doubt be photoshopped the second its on their PC and uploaded to MySpace to be commented by the Scene Kids enormous list of 'friends'!

THE LANGUAGE
35. Scene Kids like to say "kthnx". Deal with it.
36. Scene Kids also like to say "Deal with it". Kthnx.
37. "Allow"
38. "Jokes!"
39. "Bare"
40. OMGZZZ
41. Scene Kids often like to misuse the semi colon. "HI;My names W H A T E V E R !" (trademarked, naturally)
42. They also like to overuse exclamation mark and throw in some '1's and maybe even some 'ones', cos it's cool!!1!1!!one
43. "Safe"
44. "plz"

SCENE KIDS LIKE:
45. Dinosaurs
46. Robots!!1!!
47. Their amazing friends
48. digital cameras
49. shows
50. hardcore
51. art & photography
52. drainpipes
53. drinking and smoking
54. kissing in the rain

SCENE KIDS DON'T LIKE
55. Scene Kids
56. Random Adds
57. People asking them how they are
58. Anyone outside of their amazing group of friends

SCENE KIDS WANT FOR CHRISTMAS
59. A bf/gf plz?

SCENE KID MYTH
60. Not all scene kids are straight-edge. Most smoke like chimneys to be fair.

TO ENSURE MAXIMUM SCENE-NESS
61. Get pierced! Girls - monroe, snakebite, septum, excessive ear piercings, its all good! Guys - septum, snakebite, stretched ears, eyebrow, backs of necks, surface piercings, its all good!
62. Get tattood! Anything goes, especially stars. Scene Girls like their lower backs, hipbones, feet and ankles tattood, whereas guys opt for sleeves/half sleeves and across their chests.
63. Don't forget to mention what tattoos/piercings you have on your myspace profile!!1!
64. Swear excessively

I guess that pretty much covers How To Be A Scene Kid. Once you've read and followed every single step to the letter, don't forget to take a picture of your newly transformed self (see 'THE MYSPACE PHOTO!') and upload to your Myspace account (after photoshopping, of course). Expect loads of comments saying how "buff" and "pretty" && lush you are, just don't expect anybody to recognise you at a show because to be fair, you all look the same. Kthnxbye xox

Like emo, just NEON

Scene kids are also generally louder than your average emo, choosing also to be vegan or straight edge because it sounds good, rather then they know what it means.
They have to be scene KIDS because, let's face it, scene GUY/CHICK/PERSON doesn't sound as good.
Can often be found wearing over priced plastic jewellery and tiny bows in the hair on girls.
Hell, the guys probably wear them too.

Don't get me wrong, i have no problem with scene kids, i'm just pissed at the one that smacked me in the face for no reason.
I'm so scene I bleed neon.

A lot of these definitions are wrong. You're describing something called electrikk, a dumb new fad.
This is what I think is scene (well, in the UK):

TYPICAL SCENE GIRL

- Hair extensions, usually black, blonde, dark brown or a range of vibrant colours.
- Excessive make-up, mostly thick black eyeliner and/or brightly coloured eyeshadow (usually MAC).
- Fake eyelashes.
- A lot of piercings, popular ones being snakebite, septum and monroe.
- "Retro" or "vintage" clothes (plaid shirts, tight/fitted jeans, band shirts, polka dot dresses, ect.).
- Forced cockney/common accent (popular words include 'mate', 'well' and 'lush').
- Obsessive use of the words 'cunt', 'yr' and 'tbh'.
- Myspace or LiveJournal is a must.
- Sometimes posts pictures of themselves half-naked to get attention/comments
- Claims that they're in love with photography. The nearest they get to it is taking a million pictures of themself at weird angles and photoshopping it to within an inch of it's life.
- ECT.

You'll find that most of these people are completely fake.
Most of them don't have a cockney accent in real life.
Most of them don't obsessively use the word 'cunt' in real life.
It's all an act to show off how many friends and comments they can get on Myspace.
"sup cunts. capitals are so gay. my fake hair and eyelashes are SO scene tbh. i'm so original with my rainbow make-up and 7346764 piercings!
tbh photography is lush, even though all i do is take pictures of myself. i'm well good at editing my pictures though!
i need to stop hitting the contrast button and pull up my shirt tbh!"

They're EVERYWHERE.

a style that includes looking extremely rediculous to the point of being "cool".

scene kids all look the same in a way, and its an off-branch of emo.
says things like "ZOMG dats HxC" (The term HxC means hardcore, but typing it like that destroys the meaning of the word."
also, the word "br00tal" also rules their slow and extremely unwitty vocabulary. (typing the word brutal like "br00tal" also destroys the meaning of the word. its like shooting yourself in the dick to get rid of a boner.)

they seem to be attracted to bright coulours, things with polka-dots, stripes, young children's characters(e.g. spongebob, dora the explorer), or stupid patterns.

usually have choppy, multi-coloured hair and obsess over shitty bands like metro station and MSI, depending on the scene "type."

scene is usually an off-branch of emo, but can also be many other things.

1. scenemo - noobs with bullet for my valentine shirts and dumb checkered headbands.

2. scenenig - black scenesters based on rap, hip-hop, ect. and have bright coloured shoes, tupac shirts, and studded belts.

"scene" can mean many different things, but isnt nessicarially a derogatory term.
put simply, scene is a synonym with "retarded".
emo, noob, bitch, retard, neeegro, hxc, zomg, hai, scene, scenester

Usually divided between certain types of music (Indie, Punk, hXc, what-fucking ever). The members of each scene usually conform to a certain type of dress and even type of thinking. Scenesters typically react to the other scenes with disgust and contempt.

In other words, it's white youth's answer to fucking street gangs.
I can't even go to fucking local shows without having to deal with pussies with eyeliner, retards with X's Sharpied on their hands or snobby douchbags in vintage T-Shirts. Thanks scenesters! Thanks a fucking bunch!

scene
Scene kids are often confused with those belonging to the emo kid culture.
Which they pretty much are, except for a few key factors.
First off, A scene GIRL's clothing:
Headbands
Bold Prints
Dyed hair
Long fake pearl necklaces
Choppy, often odd {dyed} hair
Alot of make up
Skinny Jeans
Big Sunglasses
Either a big canvas-bag type purse, or a small clutch with a bow on it or something
Polka Dots
Dinosaurs
Comic book heroes
Robots
Slip on vans
Converse
Big, odd rings
Shoe laces with pictures or writing on them
And a variety of other little kid like stuff.

A scene guy often attributes more to emo than the girls, the girls looking more preppy than emo.

Scene Guy's Appearance:
Bandana tied around face, hanging out of pants, and tied around thigh.
Often weirder, choppier, died hair than the girls, yet some go for a more simpler, hard core / emo do.
Tight pants
Ocaisonal make up
Tight vintage shirts
Studded belts
Converse Chucks
Vans slip ons
Various sized Gauges
Big Sunglases
Ocaisonial ripped skinny jeans
And so on.

The girls & guys tend to share appearances, and most look a little like indie rockers.

Personality wise, both boy & girl probably have pimped out myspaces, some are vegitarian, vegan, & sraightedge, most listen to anything from hardcore to electronica, most use gangsta references in their speach, most cuss, some are concieted, some are big club goers, most are bi, most live in California, some skateboard, most go to alot of shows, and they tend to hand out mainly only with eachother.
Though bashed alot for being "emo", most would probably kick your ass if you called them that, and go smoke a cigarette. They are highly advanced at html, livejournal, myspace, and the internet.
Though some are similar to emos, they're mostly rich white kids trying to be unique.
A part of a scene kid's conversation on aim:
xcuntXfacedXballerinax: Hey kidd, going to the hardxcore show tonight?
DeDXxXEm0tions: Right on, Ni99a. Oh, && I really thought your Spiderman shirt was rad, foo.
xcuntXfacedXballerinax: You know it, BIOTCH!!
