Every year I write a hipster Halloween costume list where I list various hipster-friendly costume ideas.
This year there was talk of a group of us dressing as the Doctors from Doctor Who OR as various Kurt Russells.

We have to sit and think for days on what will be the most unique, most stylish, most mother f’ing hip costume Austin will ever see. We scavenge the vintage shops for just the right items. We spend hours putting our costume together nearly exploding from anticipation. Halloween arrives and we make our grand debut at a friend’s East Side party sporting our jean (more…)
