Mass consumption in the eternal quest for what is cool, distinct, difficult to acquire, or just plain ugly. Hipsters engage in hipsterism by shopping at the most trendy places, always looking for the most unique items. Everything, from the type of clothes worn to what you eat is a status symbol to the hipsterist.

Ironic Nostalgia; the creed that "everything old and belonging to an era is cool (besides anything too old, like classical music), but only when worn/eaten/done in an ironic fashion." Basically: ironic nostalgia.
Kurt practiced extreme hipsterism on Tuesday; pairing some ancient converse all-stars with an 80's watch, an obscure 60's band tee, and acid-washed jeans, he glared at all of us "preps" through tortoiseshell lenseless glasses.

Hipsters are people that try too hard to be different (and genuinely do think that they're being different), by rejecting anything they deem to be too popular.
Ironically, so many other people also try too hard to be different that they all wind up being the exact same, so hipsters arent actually different at all, theyre just people that are snobbier and more annoying about their taste in "alternative" things, which are all popular now thanks to the other hipsters.
Hipsters pride themselves on liking things that no one else likes, and normally only really like them because they think no one else likes them and that theyre being unique. This is being delusional because all the other hipsters also like the same things.
Hipster: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
A Million Other Hipsters: "I love Mumford and Sons because they're so different to popular music nowadays."
Mumford and Sons consequently becom a popular band because of their large hipster following of people who think they're being different for listening to them.

(Note: this isn't a hate on Mumford and sons, it's just an example!)

A middle class or rich kid who dresses like a hobo. They are plagued with Alanis Morissette syndrome which makes them misunderstand and fail at being "ironic". Hipsters claim to reject the mainstream and sadly have no idea just how mainsteam they really are.
