“I saw the e-mail first,” LaRoche said of the notice that their piece had been selected for the show. “I had come out of the store and I saw it and screamed out loud. There were so many people that submitted things and I thought ‘we don’t have a chance.’”
Halsey said, “I was on the phone with her when she read it and I was screaming. I was so excited. I was so happy all day. You don’t expect the actual costume designer to get back with you and say, ‘I’m using it on this character and in this episode.’”
The sisters were married within six months of one another. Halsey and her husband moved to Hawaii for awhile, but the sisters are now closer than ever.
“We weren’t friends growing up,” LaRoche said. “If you’re going to do something like this, you’d better like the person you’re doing it with.”
Halsey agreed and added, “We were strictly sisters. We’re pretty much inseparable now.”
The women’s goal is to build on what they’ve created to this point and eventually open up a small retail store.
