Hello forum friends!

We are working together with the Sisters to produce a forum-exclusive mini-interview.

We thought it would be suitable to open up the topic to you, the fans, to see what you are most curious about the Sisters, including their inspirations, goals, artistic beginnings, etc. Feel free to also ask more 'personal' or unique questions (with discretion tongue).

Any questions, post them right below and your question may be selected to be answered by the sisters!

Note: This will not be a large interview, a limited amount of questions will be selected.

If you have a question that the board can answer, or the sisters have already said, we'll answer it. Check here for their official website 'About' page: http://www.popovy-dolls.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2&Itemid=5&lang=en

Please also, no questions regarding pricing, or artistic techniques/secrets, the girls as artists have things they of course can't share.

We will lock this thread once we get a sizable amount of questions  Smile.

Thank you all!

Questions:
1-How much the fact to be Twin sister influence your work?The fact to be Twin sister is a starting point when you're working on your collections?
2-Which are your artistic influences, did you started out with the idea of making dolls, or it was an idea that you've developed in time?

3 - What does it feel like to be twins, how would you explain it to someone who is not a twin? (personal question)

4 - What did inspire you when you were children, and did you create things when you were very young? Follow-up: Would you show us something each of you created as a child?

I'd love to know how the workload is divided between you both.

1 - Do you both come up with ideas and if so, how is the decision made as to which idea may be the best?

2 - And do you each do a little of everything, for example designing & making the clothes, wigs, shoes, furniture & painting the makeup? Or do you each have different strengths, so that one sister does one thing while the other might excel at something else?

3 - Do you ever argue? Smile

I found an article that kind of touches on a few of these questions. Beware of the online translation, haha.
