Yep. We are a bit different. Please don't say hipster. No were not necessarily offended at the adjective you attributed to us, we just think that it is wrong. We recognize the style that is, and we recognize the connection it can elicit in us as people. We would like to call ourselves artists. Brash a bit yes if you would like, but with an honesty.
We use ourselves through hair, make-up, photography and sometimes every artistic cliché to create that moment when we connect with our selves. Who doesn't want to have that moment as much as you can?
