CRESTVIEW — Madeline and Samantha Redmond are doing what they can to participate in the July 27 Little Miss Magnolia State pageant in Mississippi.

The sisters, 6 and 4, respectively, have collected donations at public events like the May 10 Rise and Unite Music Festival in Crestview, and they've displayed showmanship in several online videos.

Skits featured on their YouTube channel are inspired by their favorite films, Christina Saxton, their mother, said. 

"I would see them play these little roles and I thought that would be really cute to record them," she said.

"Creating a Monster," their latest video, features the girls in a black and white horror send-up with a twist ending to the familiar mad scientist plot.

Acting out storybook fantasies is fun, Madeline said.

"You get to marry a prince," she said. "Plus, I get to have magic friends."
