Scene Queen staples:
The Fashion Mullet, short on top, long underneath.
Best if dyed un-natural colors, though jet black and platinum blonde are also acceptable. The more colors you can get into your hair, the better.
Add extensions for +10 scene points.
The "coon tail" is a popular look (see Kiki Kannibal).
*Straighten your hair. Cut and dye it yourself, too. The weirder it is, the more scene. Think 80's metal hair trimmed up with all the sophistication of today. It doesn't matter if you're a boy and your hair is longer; it doesn't matter if you're a girl with shorter hair; what matters is your ability to pull it off with confidence. Also, you can't go wrong with getting it stacked or layered. The idea is to look androgynous with your hair. Spike it up in the back and straighten the sides.
It is also very "scene" to be a "hair stylist."
Eyeliner: Lots of it, preferably in black.
*Wear eyeliner, whether you're male or female (NOT emo eye paint). If you know how to apply eyeliner, do it yourself, but if you are a novice girl or guy, let someone that knows how to apply makeup do it for you. Males have a tendency to put a "little" too much makeup on their faces, while girls can wear as much or as little as they please, (see Audrey Kitching).
Most commonly seen with a septum piercing, snakebites, or a Monroe, or a combination of the three. Some have plugged ears, some don't. Some scene kids have tattoos, mostly on the sleeves. Tramp Stamps are sooo not scene.
If you can see shoulders, then it's scene.
"Deconstructed" Tee-shirts: Oversized tee shirts of rock bands they've probably never listened to made sluttish.
American apparel is another brand scene queens love, especially their bikini tops.
*Stock up on band shirts. Band shirts are uni-sex. If you've done your music research, load up on classic band t-shirts (i.e. The Ramones). Get the tightest fitting t-shirt, within reason. Look for shirts that have the vintage feel. If you can actually find a vintage shirt, more scene points. Anything with dinosaurs on it is automatically accepted. Shirts with foil prints on them are also in, as are shirts with any of the following on them: gun, butterfly, bird, skull, lightning bolt, etc.
Sometimes SQs wearing hip-hop street-wear hoodies, but this is not common. (For some reason scene kids love hip-hop, even though if they ever actually met anyone within the hip hop scene they would probably get their *** handed to them.)
*Wear tight, skinny, pencil jeans (NOT flares, bootcuts, or baggy jeans). While the tighter the better, find a decent fit for you because no one will talk to you if you look like a fashion victim.
Girls are recommended to have tight form fitting jeans in a vintage or dark wash. Girls can also wear jean skirts or black stretch skirts, as long as a decent pair of leggings are worn beneath (Remember, you can never go wrong with a pair of solid black leggings, or any leggings for that matter).
And don't forget the belt (Preferably black pyramid belts; white for females), usually worn with the buckle to the side.
Scene queens also like wearing tutus. Why? No one knows, but some think it has to do with repressed desire to be a ballerina.
Ballet flats and other formal low heeled shoes are accepted. But heels are okay too. Nike Dunks are preferred for "athletic" style shoes, though most scene queens would rather not exercise, as that could ruin their hair.
-Invest in necklaces that have guns, hearts, keys, butterflies, skulls, bats, etc. Make sure it's plastic. Big wooden necklaces are a good alternative. Most scene queens are known for making over-priced shrinky-dink jewelry.
-Do not wear gloves or arm bands of any type. The only ones that are acceptable are the fingerless wrist warmers with either the skull on the back or lace trim.
-Oversized sunglasses with thick black or white frames are acceptable, and cat-eye frames are another good choice.
-Hats can be worn with caution, though you're better off without, as it is important to show off one's glory, the hair. Girls should wear plenty of bright-colored hair barrettes, clips, ribbons, and bow.
-Every scene kid should own at least one bandana (Often black and white, or red and white). Either fold it into a flag to hang out of your back pocket or into a band to put on your head.
-Hello Kitty is a big deal with both scene girls and boys.
Other Scene Queen staples:
SQs love all types of Japan related items, such as Ugly Dolls and Hello Kitty. Especially Hello Kitty.
SQs love Chanel, even though Coco would roll over in her grave at the sight of her beloved Double Cs on such trash.
