When it comes to scene fashion, some parents may reassure themselves “it’s just a phase,” while others are accepting of dyed locks, black band tees and all. Either way, chances are you stuck out like a sore thumb in the family photo-op—like these scene kids.

Rocking a Wednesday Addams-esque look for the holiday card gives a whole new meaning to “and we’ll have Halloween on Christmas.”

The tourists

The neglect to remove the earbuds while out with the family is an added bonus.

The Christmas morning

At least she tried to be a bit festive with a The Nightmare Before Christmas hoodie.

The park gathering

Like mother, like daughter.

The big, happy family

The all-black attire is perfect for blending into the shadows at an event you don’t want to attend to begin with.

The fancy dinner

At least she has the smize on lock though.
