subculture in a box

While looking for a fitted black blouse, I amused myself with thoughts of the "subculture in a box". It's the ultimate expression of our societies "identity through consumption"

Like the goth in a box, would have a bunch of black clothing, poetry from an angst-ridden childhood, and a selection of dark music.

the dyke in a box, sturdy sporty clothing, pictures from a river rafting trip, a coupon for a short haircut, and folksy music

Geek in a box, linux penguins, a selection of think geek t-shirts, and techno and electronica music.

(For extra points how many subcultures in a box can you fill from stuff that you already own.)
