So I'm just learning to properly crochet, and this is my first amigurumi.  I had actually finished it the day this craft challenge was announced, so I thought I'd save posting it for the contest.  This is my first craft challenge!

I present   The AMAZING conjoined bears amigurumi:



It makes me happy to give them little cocktail umbrellas to hold (don't you just love cocktail umbrellas?)



And a close up of their faces:
I made them look kinda sad 'cause life must be hard for conjoined twins



I think I was inspired to make these guys after seeing the movie Brothers of the Head, about conjoined twin rockers.  But I also love all things circus and sideshow.  

So... I couldn't think of names for the bears.  Any suggestions?

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.
