Time Out says
Also located in the Haight is Distractions, a steampunk costume shop catering to all those San Francisco parties where a unique get-up is mandatory. Similar to the nearby Goorin Brothers shop, hats of all styles line the walls with an emphasis on bowlers and anything resembling London circa the 19th century. This shop is a must-visit for experienced or baby Burners wanting to fit in by not fitting in. In the back, you can even pick up pipes and bongs while perusing the masquerade masks, faux fur, galaxy leggings and flapper dresses.
