Emily the Strange last edited by x_woman on 09/03/19 07:34PM View full history


In the early 1990's came to life on hand-screens t-shirts and stickers and became quickly a popular icon among alternative-minded young women and girls who identify with her signature singularity. In her earliest years, she was a quiet but sharp-witted stranger, slinging philosophy and cultural observations.As her presence grew she became a standard in the cultural underground, Emily's own story began to emerge in a series of gift books, then comic-books and graphic novels, and now a novel series for young adults.

Emily became more and more an example for individualism and self-awareness and reminds us all to cultivate that which makes us unique.


Unlike usual 13-year old girls pink is Emily's worst nightmare. She wears the same simple black dress all the time.

She has long black hair with bangs. Always followed by her gang of cats. She loves maths and science and likes to listen to Punk and old Rock, but also digs newer bands like My Chemical Romance (which lead singer Gerard Way was featured in her Dark Horse comic book, Revenge at Last!)

She likes to work in her lab and create Zonster.

DO IT YOURSELF! is one of her slogans. GET LOST! is another. I WANT YOU...TO LEAVE ME ALONE! is her favorite.

Emily is an artist, an inventor, a dreamer, a scientist and a skater.

Her cats

Emily has four cats Mystery, Sabath, Miles and Nee Chee. Each of them are Different from each other.
