See Urban Emo
. Defined as an individual who posesses all of the positive
qualities of an emo with urban flair. Emobans
are different from emos
are well educated, with a fluent intellect, an appreciaition of various
music styles, and a propensity
for various mediums
of art and art appreciation.
are generally more palatable to society's accursed members. They dress fashionably (or set trends), tell devilish
morbid jokes, and are the definition of social chameloen, having connections to every thread of the socio-economic spider web.
are very sarcastic, and many times emotionally expressive.
don't nessicarily dye their hair black. Some emobans
, in fact, are black. Many emobans
, however, do cut their hair eccentricly, often with a razor (a dabbling in razory, as opposed
to an obsession), and often covering at least one eye.
are both independent and conscencious individuals, not bound by "groups" or "cliques".
are mostly pessimistic about
the fall and/or decay (decay, being
perhaps the most intrinsic word to an emoban's dictionary) of (classical) civilization.
aren't obliterate imbeciles.
The "Age of Emoban", if you will, began
slightly prior to the 1920s, with the flapper/post-flapper period. It has been mantained throughout
the years, and revitilized
recently with the introduction/recognition of the emo
and the resurfacing of flapper
of both swing era and emo kid
are apparent. Unlike most "Jenny From the Block" urbies, emobans often wear a considerable
amount of makeup (if they are women) and accessorize with ingenius articles, such
felt hats and interesting
earrings. Much gothic influence
is also demonstrated, through use of Victorian accessries: cameos,lockets, crosses, lace, berets, and black are used often in an emoban
female's dress. Men, however, tend to wear considerably less "ice" than
their ghetto/pimp male
counterparts. In fact, the approach
that is often taken is "minimal", consisting of only perhaps
an expensive watch and a ring. Shoes are probably the most important accessory, as other apparel may vary in degrees of formality/eccentricity on a given day. Felt hats, belts, argyle socks, and sunglasses are other accessories that may be displayed, though, as previously stated, this deepends on the day the Emoban
is currently expressing.
