For those who aren’t of the hipster breed and who are planning on being a hipster for halloween, you’ll need any number of the following things:

A Beard, cocaine, skinny jeans, PBR, cigarettes, fixie bike, neon colored something, money clip, cardigan, Converse shoes, Vinyl Upsetters record, coffee mug, Keffiyeh, and angst. Oh, and lose twenty pounds immediately…
