Japanese playing cards

I decided to do some more work on this project that I hadn't looked at for quite some time.

The Queen of Clubs is based on the character Momoko in the Japanese film Kamikaze Girls, who dresses in a style known as Sweet Lolita. The Joker is a maneki neko (lucky beckoning cat).

The Eight of Hearts shows ema (votive tablets), and the Eight of Spades shows non-folding fans (uchiwa).
