Beautifully Simple way to Simply Beautiful Skin... by Siamesetwinsfan

For those people who have been following me here for at least the last couple years, the photo at the top of the Avon catalog page at the top of this journal should look familiar. The page in question is for a skin care line called Perfect Balance(from what little research i was able to do on the product, Avon carried the line from Spring 1974 to at least the winter of 1978, as I was able to find an archived Avon catalog from 1978 in which Avon still carried the line, the only clue I have to when it came out was the catalog was labeled "winter 1978"), and this particular ad was scanned from a catalog from 1974. As I stated before,this picture somehow got imprinted on my psyche, and is what pretty much began my obsession with Siamese twins. As I stated before, this scan is the context of how i originally saw this picture, as part of an ad in an Avon catalog. I have no idea how it imprinted on my psyche, I just remember there was something about it, something about seeing two women who were joined to one another. I do, however, distinctly remember  becoming aroused by the image, although I can't explain why, I just remember that I did.

I documented here on DeviantArt how I had been looking for this image for many years, first beginning in the mid 1980s, I looked for it intermittently, I'd think about it for a while, and then forget about it for as much as a few years at a time, but i never really forgot about it, I had the image in my mind, but what I remembered wasn't exactly what I found in early 2013, when I finally found the image. The image was sort of what I remembered, but there were some differences. The biggest difference between what I remember and the actual picture was the scarf the women are wearing on their heads. For some reason, I remembered each woman was wearing a separate scarf, although the scarves were knotted together at the backs of their necks, as opposed to the single scarf they're wearing, although the scarf is knotted at the bottom, like I remembered it. Another difference is the scarf itself, I remembered the scarves being solid white, and the scarf in the actual image is white/light silver, with a gold floral pattern. Another difference between what I remembered and the actual picture was how they were joined. The actual picture shows their bodies joined where their necks meet their shoulders, their necks making a "v", while for some reason, I remembered them being joined by a band of flesh just below where their necks met their shoulders, the top of the band being curved downward from each woman.

Differences between the actual picture and the picture that was in the back of my memory for all those years notwithstanding, that picture has inspired my original characters the Davenport Twins(Susan and Staci) and the St. Claire Twins(Amy and Morgan), both pairs of sisters being Siamese twins joined back to back, having been inspired by the picture I saw all those years ago. One other piece of inspiration I got from the pictures is the fact that in every picture of either pair of twins, I have insisted they be drawn with bare shoulders(the original picture does show the women with bare shoulders), partly to show where their bodies are joined.

As for the picture, finding it after all these years has created more questions than it has answered. In fact, the only question finding the picture has really answered is what the picture actually looked like. The biggest questions had to do with the women in the picture itself, and how they made them appear to be joined back to back. I am sure that the picture is of two women, contrary to what some people might think. My best guess is they used a combination of makeup, prosthetic, airbrushing, double exposure, optical printing, or whatever photomanipulation techniques existed back in 1974. Another possibility, which is highly unlikely, however completely within the realm of possibility, is either Avon or whoever produced their catalogs back in the mid 1970s found a genuine pair of rachipagus Siamese twin sisters. Of course, although I now know that last possibility to be highly unlikely, back when I was 4, I thought they really were joined. Speaking of the women in the picture, that's my other major question about them. I know absolutely nothing about them other than their appearance in that picture. If either or both of them are still living, they're out there somewhere. If I were to meet either one or both of them, or the photographer, or whoever created the final picture, I would ask some of the questions I have about the picture. I'm hoping someone knows something about the picture, particularly the models or photographer, or how they made them look joined.
