I'm into photography, I took many of the first pictures that were put up on this website. I don't take pictures of myself in a mirror and post them under "emo" and "scene".
I play the guitar too, and I can say that 99% of all emo songs consist of power chords and simple pentatonic solos played in the same key. They don't have any real emotion, just gaudy over-fermented lyrics. Real emotion = Steve Vai or Jeff Beck.
This is my life
This is my suicide
Falling apart I can see
So don't grab my hand
And pull me away
Don't tell me everything is going to be okay
Because nothing is okay
Nothing is okay
Anyhow, true emo girls are usually fun, amusing people ( though to others they may appear odd). Some are quiet and reserved too, but they are always intelligent or artistic, and they love japanese cartoons and cute hairclips/bows, so much that they buy loads no matter how much they need. Emo girls who smoke/drink/do drugs/self-harm are only doing it because they feel like it, and are probably a bit messed up at the time, because that DOES HAPPEN TO PEOPLE SOMETIMES. (In fact I think the reason they dress like that in the first place is because they're trying to express the way they've felt). They are very true to themselves and won't stop doing something just because it's 'uncool'.
Emo girl: That. Is. Awesome.
Non-emo friend: Em, sure, whatever you say.
Emo girl: I want it.
Non-emo friend: You don't have enough money.
Emo girl: I want it.
Non-emo friend: I though you were saving up for a hamster?
Emo girl: =C *disappointed*
they wear drainpipe jeans or a tutu. they wear converse in any colour they fancy,band t-shirts or tops from criminal damage etc. with a black hoodie. often, they will have a few badges on their hoodie, a wristband or happy coloured bracelets. they may have black hair that they dye themselves, a fringe covering one eye. the hair will be about shoulder length if not a bit shorter, often with a headband in it.
overall, emo kids are cute, but be nice to them, get them out of the whole wrist cutting thing. =)
