The Hipster Olympiade

24 Jul

The Hipster Olympiade is basically ‘Olympic’ games hipster style!

What is a hipster you may ask?!

Well here is the definition as seen in the urban dictionary: “Hipsters are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. The greatest concentrations of hipsters can be found living in neighborhoods of major cosmopolitan cities such as New York, London, and Berlin respectively. Although “hipsterism” is really a state of mind,it is also often intertwined with distinct fashion sensibilities. Hipsters reject the culturally-ignorant attitudes of mainstream consumers, and are often be seen wearing vintage and thrift store inspired fashions, tight-fitting jeans, old-school sneakers, and sometimes thick rimmed glasses. Both hipster men and women sport similar androgynous hair styles that include combinations of messy shag cuts and asymmetric side-swept bangs. Such styles are often associated with the work of creative stylists at urban salons, and are usually too “edgy” for the culturally-sheltered mainstream consumer. The “effortless cool” urban bohemian look of a hipster is exemplified in Urban Outfitters and American Apparel ads which cater towards the hipster demographic.”

Ok now this is out of the way. you may think how do I become a hipster?? Well if you are  not  so hip then you can buy a hipster kit from  “The Hipstery” for €25 and wham you are hip!
