So, it happened: You got invited to a hipster wedding and now you need to play the part. Luckily for you, Croatian graphic designer Michael Miklošić has created an incredibly "quirky-cute" Hipster Starter Kit. The kit includes a flannel shirt, stick-on mustaches, a mix tape, thick-rimmed glasses, a Polaroid camera, and an owner's manual — in case you find yourself needing some help. Photographs of the items are even laid out in true Wes Anderson form, of course.
The ongoing rise of all things vintage may leave some feeling left out. The creation of this kit breaks down the ABCs of this movement. Music, film, and fashion all had a hand in shaping "hipster," and all mediums are present in Miklošić's kit. No word on if the kit is available for purchase — yet — so, in the meantime, we're just gonna have to sit back with our mason jars and dream of all the possibilities. (Complex)

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and you must be one of the faux leather jackets on the market right now.
