someone who wears cheap, discount store clothes, loves cats and triangles and the Beatles, has a tumblr with a funny username, thinks it's cool to be a hipster
The cat shirt, triangle leggings, Beatles album in hand, and high rise shorts can only be a FAKE HIPSTER!
A person who treats hipsterdom as an image instead of a mindset. Also will usually be honest enough to admit to being a hipster, which completely goes against what true hipsters stand for (which is being "non-conformist" to a social stereotype). Other than that, they are often hard to tell between real hipsters. They typically dress like hipsters will, such as skinny jeans, lots of facial hair, and fedora
hats, and listen to the same kind of music as real hipsters do. However, fake hipsters often don't have the same level of pretention as a real hipster does, and are less likely to put down others that are not like them.
Scene: Arcade Fire
Wins Album of the Year at the Grammys
Fake Hipster: "Yay! I'm so happy for Arcade Fire
! I hope others can see how supremely talented they are. I need to tell my friends."
An Actual Hipster: "Oh wow. Arcade Fire
just sold-out, haven't they? Now everybody in college is going to like their music..."
