Oshare Kei -vs- Emo/Scene

So lets talk about originality.

Lots of kids these days are going "Emo" or "Scene" in an attempt to be alternative and different. But the truth is, that they copy other people's styles that they have seen on the internet via MySpace etc. So where did these Emo and Scene styles originate from ?

Well, straight out of Japan, from Oshare Kei and Harajuku fashions. These styles come from a lot of J-Rock bands and anime designs.

So lets take a look at how the emo/scene people have copied the Visual styles...

Emo/Scene copy:

Visual Kei original:

You can see the similarities are quite significant.

The moral of the story:
If you want to be original or alternative, don't go emo/scene as it is cliche and they are not original. Go Oshare Kei (Visual) with the cool kids.
