Super cool hanafuda (”flower cards”) + ryuusui (stream) yukata (seen on), paired with a Rumirock obi. 
I believe I’ve never touched Hanafuda cards here, so buckle up for a long post ;)
Tumblr media
Hanafuda is a card game with 12 different suits of 4 cards. Each suit is linked to a lunar month through symbols, all inspired by classical culture (months where later matched to Western calendar hence why some symbols seem off).
Please note that in the list below, I’ll use ‘meaning’ in the broad sense as following symbols often have many overlaping significations:
睦月 Mutsuki  (1st lunar month) / January => Symbols: matsu (pine), tsuru (crane), hi (sun), ‘akayoroshi’ tanzaku (paper strip, with auspicious あ(か)よろし meaning lit. ‘red is good’ = ‘really wonderful’) => Meaning: eternity, happy/new beginnings as January is the New year month
Tumblr media
如月 Kisaragi (2nd lunar month) / February => Symbols: ume (plum blossoms), uguisu (bush warbler), ‘akayoroshi’ tanzaku (paper strip, with auspicious あ(か)よろし lit. ‘red is good’ = ‘really wonderful’) => Meaning: beginning of spring, well read people (especially refers to Michizane/Tenjin), a match made in heaven As a side note, plum branches rising to the sky is an auspicious motif known as yariume/“spear plums” or tachibai/“rising plums 
Tumblr media
弥生 Yayoi (3rd lunar month) / March => Symbols: sakura (cherry blossoms), hanamimaku (curtain, here cherry blossoms viewing parties), ‘Miyoshino” tanzaku (paper strip, Yoshino is a place famous for its sakura) => Meaning: beautiful yet fleeting life (like the delicate sakura blossoms)
Tumblr media
卯月 Uzuki (4th lunar month) / April => Symbols: fuji (wisteria), hototogisu (cuckoo), red tanzaku (paper strip) => Meaning: coming of summer, beautiful yet fleeting life (cuckoo sometimes symbolize mourning souls). Fuji could also refers to famous episodes of the Tale of Genji. As a side note, cuckoo also stands for patience in Japan, probably because of the zen charade known as “If the bird doesn’t sing..”
Tumblr media
皐月Satsuki (5th lunar month) / May => Symbols: kakitsubata (iris), yatsuhashi (zigzag bridge​), red tanzaku (paper strip) => Meaning: deep and nostalgic love, inspired by famous poetical scenery from the Tales of Ise (motif is present in many paintings like this screen by Korin). Iris are also a symbol of strenght as seen in Tango no sekku festival
Tumblr media
水無月 Minazuki (6th lunar month) / June => Symbols: botan (peony), cho (butterfly), purple tanzaku (paper strip) => Meaning: road to heaven (symbols came be found in noh piece ‘Shakkyo’ and Kabuki one ‘Kagamijishi’), butterflies often stand as a symbol for spirits or souls
Tumblr media
文月 Fumizuki (7th lunar month) / July => Symbols: hagi (clover), shishi/inoshishi (boar), red tanzaku (paper strip) => Meaning: coming of autumn, the strong needing the meek (a variation of tiger in the bamboo grove motif)
Tumblr media
葉月 Hazuki (8th lunar month) / August => Symbols: susuki (pampa grass), kari (wild geese), full moon (meigestu) => Meaning: moon/harvest festival (tsukimi), deep nostalgia as year goes by (nature will soon be asleep as winter will follow autumn)
Tumblr media
長月 Nagatsuki (9th lunar month) / September => Symbols: kiku (chrysanthemum), sakazuki (sake cup, with kotobuki/‘long life’ kanji), purple tanzaku (paper strip) => Meaning: long life, immortality. In ancient japan, it was customary to drink chrysanthmum wine during Chouyou no en festival as a wish for long life (people also used to drink/use as medicine dew collected on mums leaves and flowers). As a side note, objets flowing in a stream (like sake cups) were once used as timer during poetry competitions.
Tumblr media
神無月 Kannazuki (10th lunar month) / October => Symbols: momiji (maple), shika (deer) => Meaning: momijigari (hanami autumn twin) parties and as March card = beautiful yet fleeting life. Shika deers also have deep auspicious connotation as they are messengers of the gods in Shinto
Tumblr media
霜月 Shimotsuki (11th lunar month) / November => Symbols: yanagi (willow), Ono no Michikaze and a frog, tsubame (swallow), Inazuma (thunder, wildcard sometimes bare and nicknamed “onifuda”/demon card) => Meaning: this card is always the most puzzling one for me, as in kimono fashion yanagi+tsubame are not truly a November motifs ^^; But here, the most important symbol (most often only present as an umbrella!) is a driving rain under which willows dance. Poet Ono no Michikaze, walking by a riverside in that awful weather, spots a struggling frog. After many efforts, the frog finally succeeds jumping in a willow - inspiring Michikaze. This suits hence symbolizes diligence and determination. As a side note, nure tsubame (lit. “wet sparrows”) symbolize lovers - especially star-crossed ones
Tumblr media
師走 Shiwasu (12th lunar month) / December => Symbols: kiri (paulownia), houou (phoenix) => Meaning: longevity, life circle (“beginning to the end”), power.  Legends say phoenix can only nest in paulownia trees
Tumblr media
I won’t go into details as to how to play with hanafuda as 1) I am terrible with cards games, and 2) I learned koi-koi rules only thanks to the Ryu ga gotoku/Yakuza video games xD (amazing game serie, if you don’t know about them, go play!!! They have been re-released not long ago)

The covers I drew for @hanakohanafudazine, a Toilet-bound Hanako-kun Hanafuda project!! I tried to incorporate as much Hanafuda imagery as possible, so the front cover references the ino-shika-cho combo in koi koi, and features all the plants featured in traditional hanafuda! The back features cameos from characters as they appear in the deck, and a little pun on “koi koi”! Please check out the project’s preorders here until May 29th!

this was a project i did like... a full year ago and just completely forget to post
so here, a self-indulgent Lupin Hanafuda Deck from when i realized that despite all the weird cool hanafuda decks out there nobody’s ever made one for lupin? which seems like a crime

My first drawing of Tanjiro. Finally decided to watch Demon Slayer, and I don’t regret it lol. I find Tanjiro rather relatable, and I adore his design. His love for his sister Nezuko is really heartwarming. 🥺 it reminds of how much I care about my little brother 😊. Anyway, I really want Tanjiro’s earrings. I had so much fun drawing him. So adorable. I’ll have to draw his little fire people too. So cute 🥺🥺

So am I the first one to notice that the Shinjuku Reapers have a Hanafuda theme?
Tsugumi - Crane (birthday Jan 1)
Ayano - Iris (May 18)
Shiba - Butterflies (June 21)
Susukichi - Deer (Oct 13) Kaie - Ono no Michikaze (Nov 3)
Shoka - "Swallow" (but her birthday is Mar 30, so she may just not have thought "Curtain" is a catchy enough username... on the other hand it is the cherry blossom set and her last name is Sakurane!) Then going off of the other two Shinjuku Reaper's birthday, Hishima (Sept 7) would be a sake cup - maybe he's spending all that time ignoring the reaper's game drinking. Meanwhile Kubo (Aug 15).... is a horrible goose.

Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon was my first time playing a Luigi’s Mansion game. The game is just bursting with personality, mainly from the green man himself.
Did you know that the game’s developer (Next Level Games🇨🇦) said that they watched episodes of Mr. Bean to get reference for Luigi’s animations and personality? It really shows.

HANAFUDA ⚡️ THUNDER is a TTRPG actual play show in which five high school girls go back into the extreme virtual reality game that took one of their dear friends away. Taking a lot of insp from 90's anime (and like. all anime) and wanting to be as fun and as dramatic as we can make it, HFT has been one of my favorite games to play in so far <3 We play in Spanish, and you can find us here!
