When you become a mom you prepare yourself for the job of wearing multiples hats but referee is one that you probably don’t want to wear.
Sure we have our days but when you’re bonded with sibling love they will naturally find themselves in a better stance …. yet always side by side.

Its a Happy mail day when we receive the BCK Magazine issue 5 with our TwinDollicious feature inclusion. The talented team put together a classic spread of all models, editors, designers and special features of children’s book authors. I have attached as much of the article as I can to share; but highly suggest subscribing if interested in staying in the know of international children’s fashion and artist industry.
Our first casting call for the Twindollicious brand was filmed by VH1! Quite an experience I might say. Casting children for a brand can be a lot of things; includig fun, nerve wrecking and rewarding, then to have a camera crew from the popular Reality Series Mob Wives arrive with cameras and microphones, well that’s just a bunch of things all wrapped up in one. It was a great casting! The crew from VH1 Mob Wives were Awesome! All of the models were excited to get their hands on the book and in front of our fun camera set. The dream team that put this all together begins with the Agent used : Lorrie Tierney from TV Guide Networks show “Mother of all talent”. All of her talented models attended with their wonderful parents, ready and as animated as ever. And animation is what Twindollicious is all about! Cate Scaglione International award winning child and family photographer, of http://www.lifeasfineart.com/ and I have a chemistry and enough animation to make a turtle run; so we’ve been told 🙂 Cate’s photography Halo light or magic ring as we called it that day added more of a whimsical feel to the shots… oh, Let’s not forget the magical purple wall. The shots were captivated by her to show happiness when reading “Any Two can Be Twindollcious”. Drita Davanzo’s daughter Gizelle DAvanzo entered the room a bit shy, but was happily interested to read the book, and share stories about her best friend. After the 8 minutes of comfort in front of the camera, she began to glow through Cate’s lense. I always love to add relatable conversation or laughter when around children. It works everytime! Surrounding myself around childrens books, stories and these ever loving fun kiddies is my lifes work. Our first casting was a success and all characters/models are in full animation. As the Spring/Summer looks come together in preparation for book 2, our models and look book will be released.

We are in the midst of our Book Tour and wanted to share a few fun stories and finds while on our road trip. Our Tour vehicle is filled with boxes of Any Two Can Be Twindollicious http://www.amazon.com/Any-Two-Can-Be-Twindollicious/dp/1601311540 , DVD’s, Twindollicious dresses, snacks, snacks and tons of garbage bags and handy wipes to keep the vehicle smelling as if humans are riding it; my husband, myself and my 2 munchkins; who are the best travel partners ever. Our first leg started in Easton, PA; where we met tons of new friends and read stories to a great group of children and their families. We couldn’t go on without stopping in Walmart….the 24 hour shopping mecca for everything. Next Stop Twinsburg, OH!!
It’s so fascinating to see sisters/twins so alike yet opposite like mirrors. Here I have two that share a few physical similarities a few personality similarities but their differences balance them out…..especially when it comes to fashion. They were both excited to try a hand at making this new black rose dress we’ve added to etsy, but when it came to trying it on I had a professional photographer and a model sister team. For a minute I had to stand back and watch because Kennedy posed great for her sister. It’s Amusing in a child’s world 🙂 🙂
