Popovy Sisters

Elena and Ekaterina Popovy, the twin sisters, is not just a brand, it is an artistic tandem, working as a single mechanism and creating masterpieces of the ball-joint world. With only one glance at their creations, you immediately realize how much effort, work and imagination put in a single sophisticated body of the unearthly doll.  

Born in Perm and now living in St. Petersburg, Ekaterina and Elena have been making dolls since 2004. Their early works had faces of popular idols of that time: Marilyn Manson, Ditavon Teese, Madonna, John Galliano, and others.

Their portrait dolls are inspired by personalities and every intricate, stunning, one of a kind Ball Joint Doll is handmade from start to finish. By combining their passion for fashion design and doll art, Ekaterina and Elena create small conceptual collections of 10 to 15 dolls a year.

From fashion design to hair and makeup - from photography to the printing process, the Popovy Sisters are among a shrinking group of artists who can quite literally do it all. 

Called the “new wave of Russian art-doll designers,” the Popovysisters have received numerous awards, such as Best Doll Master at the International Doll Salon in Moscow, the Haute Couture prize of Doll Magazine for Hathorof Cult project and many more.

In 2017, Jean Paul Gaultierwas keen to get his hands on these dolls, and so the sisters created two exclusively for the famous couturier. He has hair coloring that goes from pink to white on one wig, and so the sisters repeated this for him.

Creating in the studio consumes nearly all their time, which is why their everyday dress is casual. But they have a few pairs of Louis Vuitton shoes presented to them personally by the designer, FabrizioViti.
