‘Halloween or Williamsburg?’ asks hipster fashion blog

It’s Halloween 365 days a year in the hipster petri dish that is Williamsburg, Brooklyn — or at least that’s what the bloggers behind a new fashion blog chronicling the questionable sartorial choices of the neighborhood’s residents have set out to prove.

Halloween or Williamsburg continues the Internet’s fine tradition of mockingly documenting the bizarre outfits of hipsters via crowdsourcing, but this time with a topical seasonal twist.

Because, after all, many of these outfits DO look like Halloween costumes. Is that guy wearing a suit made out of trash bags taped together because he prefers them to fabric, or because he ran out of costume ideas? Is one girl wearing comically oversized glasses because the already-oversized nerd glasses that some hipsters wear aren’t big enough — or because she read Ned Martel’s essay about how hipster glasses are over, anyway? Or is this just fodder for another Tumblr book deal, à la “Look at This [expletive] Hipster?
