Scenesters are effectivelyh people who follow any trend that has become 'cool'. For example, guys have started to wear black shirts, red ties, skinny black jeans and Converse because bands like My Chemical Romance or Green Day do. While it may be acceptable to dress preppily/smartly if you actually go to gigs, listen to non-mainstream music and actually involve yourself within a scene, scenesters just pretend to so that they can boast about their unbelievably cool state of indie or emo over everyone else.
Indie Scenester: 'Do you know about The Block Party? They're going to be HUGE, like, seriously bigger than Franz Ferdinand, but I don't like Franz anymore since they became big.'

Proper Indie Fan: 'Yeah, I saw them live back in 2003 supporting Interpol.'

Indie Scenester: 'Aren't Interpol that band that don't speak in their songs? God, instumentals speak to me in so many more ways that singing does.'

Proper Indie Fan: 'Whatever.' *Sighs*

Emo Scenester: 'OMFG I fucking LOVE MCR, they r the best band since Green Day cos the singer is SOOOOOOOOOO hot!! <3'

Both Indie Kids: 'Shut up.'

Emo: *Cries*

A boy or girl who wears tight jeans, white studded belts, black band hoodies, bandanas, nerd glasses, 50's sunglasses, etc. They tend to shop at thrift stores because they're too "cool" to shop anywhere else. Scenesters think they're individual, but they're actually all just conforming to the current trends. You may find them listening to emo, indie, hardcore, synthpop, electronica, and many other subgenres of pop punk.
Girl: I'm a XsceneX slut OMG *GLAMOUR* &hearts; <333 lyk gangsturr. thugUP fo lyfe<333. I'm the biggest scenester on eearth omgz thrift stores : ] and RAAAR. DINOSAURS!!! BLACK AND WHITE!!! CHECKERED VANS!!!

Guy: I'm mother fucking X straight X edge X because it's cooler to be SXE when you could just not do drugs. I listen to the most obscured music as possible so you know I'm scener than you. My band is too cool to play at big venues. Actually, it's because we completely suck at playing music, but we're still too scene to play anywhere big.

I worked at spencer's gifts in my local mall for a year. In this time I could not help noticing the increase in young teens who seemed to be incapable of combing their hair. It became clear that this suit o-punk/ harajuku style of dress was the new trend.

This started me on a obsessive mission to find out what the heck a scene kid/ scenester actually is.
So through extensive research I've come up with the following conclusive facts:
1. Jeffree Star and his gang (Audrey Kitching, Hanna Beth, etc.) are the only true "Scenesters". They took they're new found (Japanese pop) style with them to all the hotest clubs a parties in Hollywood. They got famous for being at every party and having more myspace friends than Tom.
2. Jeffree Stars makeup skills and the fashions Audrey brought back from Japanese modeling/fashion arena is what makes up the style we know today as "Scene".
3. The music really has nothing to do with this pop culture movement.

4. Emo/ Indy/ Alternative kids may identify with the style of dress but the way they classify themselves makes them fundamentally anti-social which is the exact opposite of a scenester.
5. Scensters are obsessed with being the center of attention and the life of every party but they like to look cool and aloof while doing so.
These are the only trends and consistencies that exist in respect to the Scene Kids phenomenon. lots of wikipedia, youtube, twitter and buzznet were my sources.
Google image Harajuku Scenester and Scene Kids. You'll find that though the American version is somewhat understated by comparison it's essentially the same thing. As the good book says "there is nothing new under the sun".

Why Don't Scensters wash their hair?

Scenesters don't really know how to wear extensions.

Anyone who shops at Hot Topic.
The scenesters converged around Hot Topic when the new Blink 182 shirts became available.

1. Person prescribing to scene. Wear rainbow sparkly glam clown make-up and clothes. Have MySpaces comprising of 1,000+ friends, generated due to their numerous nudes, despite the fact almost all of them are underage. Believe they are "original" and "unique," but what's so original about prescribing to a certain style?

2. Many people mistakenly believe scenesters listen to indie, but this is not true. They listen to mainstream crap that they'd like to believe is "different" or "rebellious;" this includes a lot of screamo and "pop punk."

3. Ew.
