Sponsored by The Variant (a website pertaining to comics, cosplay & convention culture), these ladies were amongst the cosplayers at the stores of Ultimate Comics, which has three locations in the Triangle area of our state, nya!

Some of those supurr heroines are friends of Clint Barton, a.k.a "Hawkeye", who was depicted in this delightful fan art by Alexcia Reynolds', who used Photoshop & Paint Shop Pro to color & adjust this pen drawing of Clint, who is a member of The Avengers and an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., nya!

He has been portrayed wonderfully  in the movies by Jeremy Renner! To see more of Alexcia’s, original & fan art, plushies, stories & sites, please visit her main hub sit Sailor Christmas and her gallery at DeviantArt, nya!

Then we are delighted to display two more collaborative illustrations by Mike and illustrator / mewsician / cosplayer Rebecca Brogden, who used the Procreate on the Ipad Pro, whilst  Mike used Photoshop CS2 for the background scenery, nya.

"Vikala" depicts our friend Dr. Vikala Orlanda Patricia Lamonda, who is one of the neurosurgeons at the Mew Hanover County Medical Center. Standing upon the sidewalk overlooking the ocean, she is wearing the Purrple dress, shoes, and Pink leggings and leggings that accent her Tan skin, Blonde hair, Gold and Purrple faerie wings, nya

"Larysa" depicts our friend Dr. Larysa Olga Valentina Enescovia (nicknamed Dr. Love), who is the purrofessional linguist, translator, interpurreter & purrofessor. Hovering within the underwater grotto, she is wearing the Brown halter top that accents her Magenta Haze hair, Apple Green skin, Verdigris tail and Carolina Blue fins, nya!

Rebecca also used the Procreate on the Ipad Pro for "Shades of Emerald", which depicts the voluptuously winsome Blonde faerie who has found the large Emeralds in the pool of the lush glade! You know, the Emerald is our stare's official precious stone! Now she is quite rich, with those gems that match her Green eyes, wings, antenna, halter top and skirt, nya!

In further faerie imagery, Rebecca used the pencil, pens and Copic markers for the happy redhead faerie who is doing the "Moondance", nya! The Moon is festively full as she winks alluringly at us to join her in the dance! She is the irresistible sight in that off -  shoulder, short Pale Turquoise dress with the ruffled Apurricot trim that matches her wonderful wings!

Of course, the night brings out the spooky things too, such as the many voyeuristic "Eyes in the Dark" that are watching the sexy Green - eyed, catgirl with the Honey Blonde ears, hair and tail nya! Wearing just the panty and loose open robe, she seems startled in the dark, but hopefully the watchers are merely the curious kittens, owls or flying foxes nya!

It is the daytime for our next faerie, who is purrplexed by the "Mystery Egg" nya! This Brown - haired, Saffron & Lavender - winged  fae is quite gorgeous in the Pink halter top & skirt with the White ruffles & Gold serpentine jewelry as she scrutinizes the large Pink egg. We are also rather curious  if it contains the treats, toys, or the critter hat might soon hatch nya!

Then Rebecca used the pencil, pens and Copic markers for the close - up portrait of the redhead catgirl who is having the "Happy Thoughts" nya! Purrhaps she is pondering the pretty seashell jewelry that accessorizes her off-shoulder dress that matches her lovely Light Cyan eyes... or purrhaps she is daydreaming about a pending date with a special someone nya?

Nextly is the pencil, pens and Copic marker illustration of the adorable chibi - style "Water Lily Elf" nya! Purrched upon the floating lily pads in the water, she is so purretty in the Violet Soap colored, off - shoulder , bare - midriff outfit with the thigh highs and detached sleeves that accent her Aquamarine eyes, caramel colored skin and long magenta hair, nya!

After that we are  honored to exhibit the "Lonely Mermaid"Happy Mermaid" and "Elegant Swim, nya! Rebecca used the pencil, pens & Copic markers for these three oceanic ingenue illustrations, nya! Nyow we want to go swimming with our mermaid friends  in the ocean too, nya! It is also time for
