I was first interested in the counter-culture turned pop culture phenomena of hipterdom last year when the incoming freshman class came in with fake glasses and mismatched clothes. They also thought a bunch of no name bands and organizations were cool. All I had to say was, "nice beanie."
For Halloween this year, my brother and I decided to skip out on a chunk of the Franklin Street festivities to go to a concert. A Watsky concert.
First of all, if you don't know who Watsky is, find out here.
If you do know Watsky, please stop screaming. Sit down, this story's not about him.
Anyway, going to a concert, my main fashion concerns are comfortability and workign my camera into the costume.
You see, I go all out when it comes to costumes. Last year, I was a mime. I didn't talk for almost half the night. I did end up chatting a bit when the people around me were gettign frustrated, but I don't play.
So this year, if I want to bring my new camera to the concert, I have to play along as a photographer, but hey! Guess what other icon thinks photography is cool? Hipsters.
So, looking online, I thought I'd share some cute things I found hipster Halloween related. Take a look at my hipster music too.
Here's a super cute hipster.
All I'd have to do is slap on some suspenders and a pair of glasses. I think he was going for nerd, but whatever.
This costume is brilliant and so anti-Halloween.
Aren't Hipsters anti everything mainstream?
You know, I could just be an actual camera.
This guy has his camera mounted under the Insta board and a live stream of his pictures loaded to Instagram on an iPad on his back.
