ELENA & SOFIA | THE COSTA SISTERS
Desert Mama- Who are Elena and Sofia and where can we find them? How and when was The Costa Sisters created?
The Costa Sisters- We’re two sisters who were born and raised in Wales, UK.
Named ‘The Costa Sisters’ by everyone in our hometown because you’d never see us apart. We always say if we weren’t sisters, we’d be best friends anyways.
DM- What do you like to convey with your Videos?
T- That you don’t have follow what everyone else is doing. If you wanna ride down the aisle on your Harley, or get tattooed after getting hitched, you gotta do it!!
DM- What inspires you, and what other artist currently working do you admire?
T- Travelling is what inspires us the most, we love seeing different cultures and new places. Theres nothing that gets our creative juices flowing more than an adventure!
One of our favourite videographers is Max Cutrone, from California. We actually met him in London not so long ago and made an awesome video together.
DM- Tell us about one of the projects you both have loved the most and we would love to see the video of the results.
T- We love that our jobs don’t revolve just around weddings, most of our favourite videos have been documenting motorcycle events, our road trips around the USA and filming the great frog rings being made.
T- The adventures filming takes us on & the people we meet along the way. We’ve met creatives all around the world, some who end up being life long friends.
DM- Where and how would you like to see yourself 10 years from now?
T- We have lots of business goals we’d love to do, loads of brands we’d love to work with and events we’d love to film.
DM- What makes you angry?
SOFÍA- Cancer. Cancer sucks and can just go die!
DM- Your best childhood memory:
ELENA- In high school I was a bit of an outcast, so for me discovering the local (under 18’s) dive bar and finding my tribe of music lovers there helped me to finally find a place I belong. I lived for getting sweaty in a mosh pit!
DM- Your best quality and your worst defect:
SOFIA- My passions, I have major desires to do things, mainly creative things like videography, photography, and my newest passion is painting! I get super excited, and I love to go all in, giving it all I got! I never let fear hold me back!
My worst – Overthinking.
DM- A success and a failure:
ELENA- Success – Finally passing my motorbike test!
