A child version of an more complete adult. They have a lot of great ideals, but don't realize that they will never transcend being nothing more than another trend. The hipster feels that you are either a hipster or a dumb fucking puppet conforming to society. All the while the hipster them self is a dumb fucking puppet conforming to society. Hipsters claim to be very open minded and love bragging about interracial relationships, but lump all frat boys and sorority girls into the "meat head" category, which is a different kind of bigotry. This is not bad, its just very immature. Kids act this way.

Adults like music that appeals to them. Adults listen to The Kooks, Beethoven, and Del The Funky Homosapian and maybe throw in some Kanye West, Pink, and Pearl Jam because they like the songs and don't give a shit who's judging them. Adults wear whatever they like, whether it be from a thrift shop, J. Crew, or Target because they like how it looks on them. Adults go to the gym because its healthy. Adults can go see "Wristcutters:A love Story" and then go see Iron Man because, fuck it, I felt like it.

Hipsters are generally kids who were shy and/or different as kids and they carried the subconscious resentment of not "fitting in" over to their young 20's and early 30's. Some Hipsters grow up around 35 when they realize that the world doesn't revolve around just them. Some don't, and they go on to be lonely senior citizen's.

Their are plenty of people who listen to indie rock, dress cool, and can recite poetry who are not Hipsters. Hipsters are the ones who all look exactly the same and harshly judge people outside of their clique.
Two guys are at a party. The Hipster is wearing a tight Tee and tight jeans and Buddy Holly glasses. The other is wearing madras shorts and a NY Yankees tee shirt.

Yankee: This Calvin Harris song is the shit.

Buddy Holly: I don't like it anymore, it's selling on iTunes. Who says "the shit"? Where are your Chuck Taylors?

Yankee: I like flip flops because they are really really comfortable.

Buddy Holly: I bet you like fake tits and date rape, too!

Yankee: Nope. Do you like the Yankees?

Buddy Holly: Sports is for the idiots that beat me up in High School, er, I mean... I don't follow sports. Sports are for meat heads.

Yankee: I like sports. I was going to see if you wanted my tickets to the game tomorrow because I'm going to an opening at a new gallery in Tribecca and can't make the game.

Buddy Holly: Anyone who would have a show in Tribecca is a sell out. You should come see the show at my apartment in Billyburg.

Yankee: Sounds cool. When is it?

Buddy Holly: Sorry. You can only come if you wear Chuck Taylors...

Formerly a person with an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence and witty banter, Hipsters are now those idiotic teenage girls who dance around in they're high waisted shorts, cropped tops, cross rings and dip dyed hair whilst making triangle symbols with there fingers.

They claim to be individual and have original style, but are really all the same. They have killed Tumblr for most with their shitty blogs with urls like "glittercrystals" and "sparklyturquoisenailpolish".

All of these "Hipsters" believe that they are indie and original, but because of them; there is pretty much no such thing as indie anymore. These girls have killed the stereotype.
Nina: "Lol babes i'm a unicorn. I'm so Hipster bebz. KE$HA IS MY LYFE! I like wearing my cross ring and buying my clothes from Supre. I wanna dip dye my hair. Follow my tumblr- promo for promo baybee? YAY GLITTER."

Lachie: "Just fuck off."

Basically a hipster is your modern day Amish. They don't like the trends of the world, so they shun them and live their own worthless lives.
Everyone in the world loves stupid designer things and doesn't appreciate the finer things in life, such as this bag i found in a tree. No one else has it. Hipsters are cheap.

there isn't much difference between hipsters and indie kids. their favorite color is probably either yellow or red. they like triangles, owls, and they all smoke. hipsters MUST know what omegle and 4chan are, lolcats and insanewolfs are a must, too. every hipster needs a camera. they'll take pictures, put them in black and white, and they're automatically photographers. they spend most of their time complaining on tumblr, and making fun of hipsters for being hipsters. they constantly bicker about twilight and harry potter, often favoring harry potter. yeah sure, hp and twilight have nothing in common, but who cares? hipsters don't.
person a: what's that lyric from?
person b: oh, just some obscure band you've most likely never heard of.

person a: LOLOLOL look at that hipster.
person b: lulz, i know.

person a: i have so many followers on tumblr, but they all delete my cred!

The blend of every failed fad since the early 1900s.
The hipsters in my town sport ironic mustachios and ride pink speed bikes to local coffee shops where they bust out their superior Macintosh laptops and give people disgusted looks who are not seen to be as ironic as themselves, concerning fashion.

A person inbetween the ages of young teenager to early thirties who wears vintage/thrift store clothing and tends to embrace the underground, indie culture (art, books, music) instead of the mainstream. A typical hipster wears thick rimmed glasses/sunglasses (mostly Ray-Bans), skinny jeans, ironic tees or band shirts, and low top Converse or some kind of colorful high tops. They mostly listen to indie bands that are about to make it big, such as Phoenix. They have their own 'hip' slang such as 'deck' which means cool. They often hang out at coffee shops and have artfully messy hair. They dislike labelism and being called a hipster. They most likely live in SF's Haight, Williamsburg, SoHo, or the Mission District.
That hipster is so against the mainstream.

hipsters, usually some where between 16 and 24 years old, are in people in the process of breaking their ties with the ska punk "scene" that they dearly loved as a teenager. Their main form of transportation is a fixed gear road bike. Guy hipsters ussally wear skinny jeans, self designed t-shirts(printed drawn, spray painted, ect.). Girl hipsters will sport just about anything that doesn't have a brand logo on it that can be found in their local thrift store, both are often seen with lesbian-esque haircuts and chuck taylor's or vans. Politically, hipsters are very liberal and often are socialist and are in love with Abbie Hoffman and Che Guevara but are too lazy to start any kind of a revolution. Musically, hipsters listen to many genres, some bands most hipsters listen to are the beatles, atleast one of conor obersts projects, the cure, modest mouse, matt and kim, mgmt, the smashing pumpkins and the smiths, many hipsters are also secretly in love with my chemical romance but won't admit it unless they catch their hipster friend listening to them although they often have intense hatred for followers of the christ-core scene.
