1.) Music. their musical tastes are totally deeper than yours. scene kids don't just listen to chiodos and underoath anymore, they now enjoy lil' wayne and girl talk!
2.) Haircuts. their haircuts are omg fab, held together by super strength hair wax, hair spray, or sometimes gel (all in mass amounts). the preferred styling method is to put a shitload of wax on the back of their head before bedtime, making it super messy and xcore (WARNING: this causes scenester-pillowcase syndrome). When they wake up for high school, they then apply massive amounts of product in the front to make it flat and pushed all in one direction. the great thing about scene haircuts: they're unisex!
3.) Hair Dye. along with the cool do's, scenesters also are totally individuals and non-conformists because of their hair dye patterns. in order to be truly scene, your hair must consist of 2 or more colors, one of them being a hue that doesn't occur in nature. Black is chosen by most as their naturally-occurring color, the other may be blue, bloodfrommywrists-red, green, or my personal favorite, purple (makes me think of grape jolly ranchers!)
4.) Piercings. emo/scene kids love 'em, mostly in places they'll regret when they are 25 and in the job market. Sorry xhatemylifex, but you'll never get hired with 3 nose piercings, 4 lip piercings, and an eyebrow ring. not even at starbucks.
5.) Cigarettes. Scene kids start once they find out they're scene. in getting started on the cancer sticks, they use the stereotypical "i'm cool for smoking" excuse to justify it to themselves. Many scene kids don't actually inhale their cigarettes, as they are in the 13-14 year old range and don't know how to properly smoke yet.
6.) Clothes. this is one of my fav's. the scenester wardrobe is as unisex as the haircut. t-shirts must be 2 sizes too small; the typical 5'8" 150 lb. male wears an XS tee (as to expose his midriff) of his favorite band, perhaps the rocket summer. pants must be GIRLS jeans (tight men's jeans are not acceptable) with key rings hanging from the beltloops, and rips and tears in the knee and thigh area. once again, pants must be 2 sizes too small, as to minimize mobility of the legs and maximize how much of their belly hangs over the waistline.
7.) Mannerisms. Scenesters usually don't allow for much fluctuation of the voice, as to not show any happy emotions they may have. Others: looking down, flipping their hair, adjusting their pants, checking myspace religiously, and putting an x before and after every word they use. it's the hardxcorex thing to xdo.
8.) Myspace. all the scenesters got 'em. All photos are self-taken from an awkward angle, as to show any cleavage they might have in junior high/high school, or to show that they're just plain good at aiming without looking at their digital camera's screen.
All in all, these factors make scenesters the most respected group of people in their high school.
NOTE: You can consider this a confession of a former-scenester. I'm guilty of all the above, except piercings/hair styles.
Though most of the content is true, let's be honest; most scene kids get to a point where they realize what they are doing is ridiculous. Those that don't just end up getting pointed and laughed at (rightfully so). If you're gonna do the scene style, why don't you just go all-out and cross dress?
2: yeah, Connor is so scene; i love his lip ring and mudd jeans. my sister has the same jeans.
1: awesome! what kind of hair wax did he use for that cool do?
2: not too sure... (drags cigarette without inhaling)... what's his screen name again so i can tell him how sweet and ghetto his new gear is?
1: i think its xxbleedingmakesbloodxx, but it might be xwilldiexforyoux.
2: so scene...
*not to be confused with emo, although the scene and emo defining line is not completely clear*
-they often have many hair colors at one time.short and spiky on one side, and long bangs on the other side.
---trends with "scene people" right now: strange fascination with dinosaurs and saying "rawr", childrens hair bows and headbands, plastic bright colored jewlry, leggings matched with vintage skirts and old shirts, messager bands with pins on the strap, plaid pants, long bead necklaces, sayings like " he's a cool kid. "
person 1-- you are so rad
person 2-- well you are a cool kid
person 1--- well, rawr im a dinosaur how can't i be cool
person 2- *laughs*
Some scene girls and boys tend to use black and short hair. They cut it themselves to make it look messy but tidy.
If they have a myspace, all they're pictures are from every possible angle. They like to take black and white pictures of themselves, too.
When they type, instead of writing "and..." they use "&&...". They love to use "gangsta" chatspeak and in their space they have at least 1 "gangsturr" picture. They usually don't use capitalization, correct grammar and periods.
Scene people use colored clothes, generally with prints saying "bang", "gun", etc. And wear tight pants, generally ragged on some parts.
They also love colored plastic pearls-made necklaces and piercings. Most of the time they like to act childish.
They like children's stuff like little girls hair accesories, dinosaurs,etc.
Some of them like to pretend being a "ninja".
Being scene means tons of make-up, specially on the eyes. Some may use the "doll" look, a white face, with red cheeks.
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.
to me: scene is a movement. it's when a group of people who happen to like similar kinds of music and fashion (and many other things)come together. Consequently scenesters like to express themselves however they want to in relationship to the music or their interests. who cares how they dress, or talk, or feel. Everyone should dress how they like, talk how they want to, and feel what ever they damn well please.
how is scene any different than any other label? Jock, prep, girly, hick... If you want to label a group, fine. But don't put down a group of people for what they like just because they "annoy" you or because you don't understand them. Maybe you annoy the fuck out of someone else but they're not rude enough to label you as a piece of shit.
