    Love yourself. Be confident and do not care about what others say about you. You have to be willing to love yourself before you become scene.

    Go shopping. The scene look is all about skinny jeans, random T-shirts, flats, Converse, Keds, and Vans. For shirts, look for things that have dinosaurs, robots, Pokémon, and Hello Kitty on it. Or basically anything with random sayings or band tees. Skinny jeans should be black, dark, patterned, or colourful. Do not wear anything preppy or clothes that don't fit properly. Since you're a little over weight, you may want to stick to any dark denim colours and buy something that actually fits you. Dark colours, black especially, will look scene and make you look slimmer at the same time!

    Accessorize. This is an important part of being scene. Cute headbands and bows are a must. Also get rubber bracelets, beaded necklaces, chunky jewelry and anything with zebra print or lightning bolts and stars. Buy colorful accessories. Preferably neon or bright colours. Avoid wearing too many accessories and pay attention to detail. For example, if you have on pants with a brown seam, wear gold eyeshadow and a brown bobby pin or headband. It's those little things that will get you defined as stylish and hot.

    Wear scene makeup. Eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara are good ideas - look on YouTube for lots of tutorials on how to apply these.

    Get cool hair. The classic scene hair is choppy layers on top and longer layers on the bottom. Dyed and streaked hair is awesome too. You could also go with a Hayley Williams haircut if your parents won't let you get the classic haircut. Scene hair looks good on any face.
