I seriously wonder what the jaded late 80's-early 90's clubgoers thought of the funfur and soothers that completely were the opposite of hipster and douchebaggy back then.
Oh, yes.. we (mid-late 80's, early 90's) made fun. There was also the boas..
But then, we were so much cooler (tongue in cheek), what with our shaved heads, mod coats, army boots and floor length scottish kilts. lol
Ok. The fun-fur pants weren't really that made fun of.....they were a great thing to have while on drugs (not that I would know about that).
The scarves are ridiculous i.m.o., but I can handle a lot of other hipster things like the tight pants and the vans and the glasses. Everyone has their own lines in the sand. Scarf = over the line.
Meh.. I'm more of a #3 on Otis' scale. Yeah, I look at some of the outfits and giggle a bit, but at least they're having fun. We wore some pretty freaky clothing in my day, so the hipster style certainly doesn't bother me when I go out. It only does if the person is sporting an attitude as if they are too cool for the rest. It's defintely there, but it's been there for every generation.
Was planning on going to this but because it fell on a work day decided against it. I really would like to see the venue but it sounds like the event was not up to snuff. Too bad, as the last time I saw 'Justice' I really enjoyed them.
