Distaffs by @Thorvald (El Thorvaldo)

So there I was, wanting to DYOS anything but an actual page, and then I thought: "What if the DYOSers were women?" This was actually started a couple months ago, but the last 80% was done this week after stalling on a different sketch. I'm not sure how expansive I originally intended it to be, but once I'd mentioned it on IOT Chat the other day and several people said they wanted to see the end product, I knew I was aiming big.

The result is most of the main contributors from DYOS 10–12 for whom I could readily think of a proper feminine counterpart, plus a couple of my characters. Peter takes centre stage because he was the first one tried before I realized how many I needed to fit on the page. This is I think the third time I've tried Fem!CG and the first that I felt actually worked; as I struggled with his signature beret, I thought: "Make the hair the beret!" NinjaCow64 was a bit of a cop-out, and for certain reasons Omega124 might be cheating. ;)

Some space remains should further inspiration arise, i.e. Stylesjl & kulade.
