The most popular definitions need to be updated a little bit. Because at this point in time october 2007 thats more like a wannabe scene kid/emo kid.
And I don't like labels too much, but come on. Don't pretend you don't do it.

I don't care what the roots are of scene, this is UrbanDictionary, and we're concerned about modern shit not going back ten years.
Scene kids are rich. Or they might not be rich, it doesn't matter. They buy exspensive shit and still look like trash.
You pay money to look like dirt when you're a scene kid. And yes, its stylish. Whether you like it or not. I really don't get why its so wonderful to look trashy.
Not all scene kids are trashy. Some of them are just Urban Outfitter whores and seem trashy, but thats just fashion and they look more like bums than trash.
And even then there's some who don't look like bums or trashy. Its a very narrow yet broad spectrum.
And thats just their clothes.
Usually a scene girls hair is long underneath and very big and layered on top. Some examples of this are Mother Fucking Aly and Amor Hilton. While Aly's hair is poofy and big on top its not like Amor's, which almost looks like a rats nest, but in a good way.
Typical scene boy hair is about shoulder length, and very smooth and shiny. Some use product, some don't, but almost all scene kids straighten their hair. And if they don't, they must have some bomb ass hair to pull of not straightening it.
Now to the most key things in a scene kids existence: their myspace. There are not a million graphics, there are no links to graphics sites; they either do it themselves or have other people do it. Very clean cut, nice and put together. Usually have comment, message and add buttons and contact table is hidden along with their extended network box, blogs, and song. Some have their friends and comments hidden, others don't. Some opt to just show their friend and comment count.
Camera phone pictures are okay as long as you're hot.
High quality picture are preffered, photoshopped or not. Medium quality are alright as long as they're highly photoshopped.
Headbands, cigarettes, brass knuckles, diamond and bat necklaces, gloomy bear, hello kitty or any other sanrio character, and recently weight lifter things are popular in pictures. Just make is scene, make it work.
If you're a girl, you are basically required to have raccoon eyes. If you don't, you better have at least some makeup on. And fake eyelashes. When you look down, it better look like a damn box. Monroe and septum piercings are ideal for you, as well as angel bites. Gauges are welcome, but too big and you just look trashy. Too small and you look like a pussy.
Boys usually will wear some form of makeup, whether its foundation or a little bit of eyeliner. Their ears better be stretched to at least 5/8 of and inch, and if they aren't they shouldn't be pierced at all. Monroe, septum, snake bites, spider bite, bridge and middle lip piercings are the best for boys. Don't do overkill though, its ugly.
And sidekicks. The Sidekick is a scene kids best friend. Now more available because of the new Sidekick iD which is much cheaper than the D-Wade SK or the SK3, a SK is key in your scene being. What would you do without being able to text David Dior at the Bring Me The Horizon concert which you go to a lot, shows are also your best friend. Useful for networking with fellow scene kids and check your MySpace on the go? Nothing, thats what.
You don't always have to be a bitch, but you must be confident. If you aren't, you are not a scene kid, and you lose at life.
YOU NEED TO KNOW PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD. Scene kids have a very wide network, and have often never even met their best friend who lives five thousand miles away. If you are a scene kid, you have a best friend in a different state or country. They'll probably never meet this person.

w0rd.
Ew look at her septum it has boogers on it, what a failure scene kid.
Yeah I know. And her monroe has scabs around it.
Ew. What a dirty.

A commonly hated-on subculture.

Scene kids favor tight pants, dinosaurs, and moshing.

bitchy girl: eww she's like so scene don't touch her! you'll get cooties!

normal person: uh... that's just how she wants to be. if she wants to mosh & yell "rawr" all the time, that's her choice.

bitchy girl: yeah... well... (denial).. fuck off!

nothing and everything is "scene". people who you may consider "scene" or "emo" say they're not. today if you wear smaller tops and jeans and a studded belt, WHATEVER music you listen to and WHOEVER your friends are people will call you "scene". myspace is typical "scene" even tho most people have it. people who choose to be straight edge are "scene". old skool nintendo is "scene"!! poetry is "scene". romance is "scene". peircings are "scene". "scene kids" i know like hiphop, dance, funk, punk, pop. are all these music genres "scene" I DONT THINK SO!!

the line is now soooo blurred ANY consivable thing is just dismissed as "scene".
people will say you cut yourself. people will say you cry. DO PEOPLE REALLY THINK THATS WHAT "SCENE KIDS" DO ????

fools.

The scene is the local music in the area, or the shows. For example if someone were to say : "DFjmsdof, the scene is DYING" what they mean is "There are never any good shows anymore.

The typical scene kid thrives on shows and dinosaurs. The girls and boys have choppy black hair with blonde streaks, or blonde hair with black streaks. The boys are hot. The girls are always 5'1 or below, ranging from skinny to chubby, and love to wear spandex, bows and headbands.

People who are not in the "scene" tend to think that scene kids are conceited and close-minded, but that is just a sterotype.
Stop being so hard on the scene. You all are biased and probably have never talked to one of these people in your life. If you had, you'd have realized that they are human like anyone else, and don't all fit under one catergorie.

Scene is a stereotype that most people have never heard of and usually have no idea they belong to. Many of the people who are 'scene' think that they act preppy or emo or whatever other labels they feel like sticking themselves with. Some 'scene' kids don't want a label and merge all sorts of different stereotypes together. According to these definitions, that is what scene is, isn't it? Some confused kids who are trying to be original but can't help but flow with the current and are unfairly punished with the 'horrid' label of being scene? Many of the scene kids are proud to be scene and follow the crowd on purpose. But many more of them were just swept away without being able to get a word in edgewise. So go ahead and wear your vintage tees with an overabundance of black eyeliner and your cheetah print Vans. One day you'll realize what your label is and all of us definers will feel like complete idiots when you get rich off of your super popular 'scene' clothing line. Show off your Sex dance moves at System of a Down concerts and listen to Relient K on your walkman on the way home from 'chillin wit ur DaWgZ' at the mall. Us original, hardcore, judgemental computer freaks will slap ourselves in the face when your highchool 'scene' band shoots off and you get a major record deal and can afford to smash your hot pink guitar over your boy/girlfriends head then be able to pay off the cops and get probation for six months, while the rest of us are rotting in prison for 25-to-life and our black 1980's guitars are lying in the same place at that last underground cavern we played at. But yea, no one be scene, 'cause it's bad. Very, very bad. And we will punish you. Pfft.

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!!

Scene kids are usually annoying, conceited bitches that think they are superior to everyone else. On their MySpace profiles, they usually say something like “I’m usually nice to everyone” or “I’m probably the nicest person you’ll ever meet”, but in reality they make fun of basically anyone who isn’t one their friends. The majority of scene kids act condescending toward most people. They think they’re being funny or cool when they pretend they like “little kid things” like Carebears, Pokemon, dinosaurs, etc. They take 162,983 pictures of themselves making “scene faces”, and then edit them in photoshop to make themselves look like teh s3xx. They usually have over 500 friends on MySpace, but most of them are people that they only know over the internet and will never meet. Basically all scene kids look and dress the same, but they still think they’re unique. Most of them look like clones of one another. The typical scene girl wears a shitload of makeup, and it’s nearly impossible to determine what she actually looks like. And almost all of them have the exact same haircut, and have their hair dyed the exact same way. They like to two-step at t0tally hardxcore shows, and probably ruined hardcore music for people that actually like it.

Now I’m not saying all scene kids are like this, but probably about 98% are.
Typical “scene kid” myspace profile:
Heyyy niggaz. My names Jen. I’m probably one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet <333. Me and my friends are really random, and like robots, dinosaurs, and power rangers LMAO. My friends are probably better than you. we’re all hardxcore pokemon fans LMOA!! I like to two-step at shows and at school :]. I like to color, shop, and play candyland with my friends lmaoooo. I <3 the words cUNT, fagggg, and nigga LFMAO! I don’t consider myself scene or cool. I can be rly emotional sometimes, but I don’t let it show : \. I’m looking for a guy that’s kinda like me and isn’t conceited, mean, or stuck up. If you add me, I’ll add you back. But plz don’t add me if your ugly. kthxbyefag! <3333
