The problem with defying convention is never being pigeon-holed. On a morning stroll threw the Goat Farm, earthSistas Ororo and WildOrchid sport their uniquely casual fair that has aspects of Goth and Bohemian intermixed with a strong flavor of Afropunk. These urbanists are resourceful and creative in their approach to fashion, accenting everyday fair with unique and sentimental accessories, creating their own personal style. In their fantasy photoplay as Manic Pixie Dream Girls, they usually favor cosplay but when they are roaming the streets of Atlanta’s Little Five, this is one of the ways they role.
