The story

Valentina and Emilia were not your ordinary 7-year-old twins. They were quite different.

It wasn’t because they were conjoined, but rather because they thought everyone else should be.

It started off innocently enough, with them tearing apart their dolls and giving them extra heads, just like them.

But that got boring fast.

They moved on to “fixing” the neighborhood pets.
Their parents tried their best to make sure they were safe in their room (or perhaps to make sure that the neighborhood was safe from them).

But the girls needed more. Who better to experiment on than their dear parents?

Now they live at home with the remains and ghosts of their parents who try desperately to get out. But the girls love them too much to let them leave.

 Extra Info & Pictures

Like the other light boxes, this light box also morphed in the process of it’s creation.

I originally intended to have 80’s video tapes in the cabinet, but I soon decided they would not stand out as much. I am much more pleased that I decided to go with the hand.

I also had originally intended for the girls’ video game to be seen on the screen, and for the zombie creatures from the video game to be coming out. It was going to show the zombies being afraid of the girls instead of the girls being afraid of the zombies. But once I created the zombie game (as seen in the prompt “A Pair”) I realized I did not like the look of it at all. Along with the change of the zombies, the story changed too.
