Me — Desperate Hipster Attempt Edition

| 6 Comments

There was a time when I was pretty intolerant towards hipsters. For no particular reason, actually, other than in Berlin being against hipsters is possibly trendier than being a hipster yourself.  But then I ran into an interesting post about being a hipster written by my friend Adam and a whole new world disclosed before my eyes.

Being a hipster was suddenly this enriching, proactive, positive way of living your life, and of course I needed to try that. But how to start? Was it an inside process or the outside part was relevant too? I decided to start working on my image ’cause hey, I’m a superficial person, and I happened to have just won a Hipster Kit from a website called Hipstery, through a contest hosted on Uberlin.

The result (see photo) made me die inside. It’s worse than the time I tried to drink Club Mate (which I won’t ever ever do again) and I think it made pretty clear that glasses, a big moustache and my own real nose don’t really look good on my face.

The good news is that if I ever get to rob a bank I already know how to dress up.

  1. That so much looks like a Mario & Luigi mustache!

  2. Add baguette and cheese in each hands and then you’ll be a perfect hipster, French version.

  3. You don’t like Club Mate? Shame on you. No wonder a novelty moustache and fake glasses don’t sit well on your face, for you can not be human! ;)

    Nah, seriously now, you have to drink about 10 before you actually like it. It’s like smoking, first you have to build the dependency, then it’s actually pretty nice.
