For my SoujiSeta/Yu Narukami cosplay, I made customized Persona 4 tarot cards of all the Major Arcana. I wanted to go against the grain of just printing photos of the arcana as shown in the game, so I used Photoshop to put a Persona on top of its respective arcana. I also printed photos of the back of the tarot card from the Persona games (not shown here) and laminated them together to make them as stiff as a real tarot card (though I had to run each of them through the laminator 2 or 3 times to get rid of any cloudiness).
The cards are a little larger than I wanted because the photo machines at Wal-Mart don't have options to make smaller than 4"x6" sizes (I wanted the standard tarot size of 3.5"x5").
I also made the pic of the Inaba Investigation Team because I planned on replicating the scene at the end of the game (though I don't think I'll go on an actual train or bus to do that).
Here's a list of each Arcana and each Persona. I chose Personae based from first to last on how iconic they are (O, I, XIII, XXI), how strong they are (IV, VII, X, XVI, XX), personal preference (V, XI, XIV), and ultimate persona of that arcana (the rest).
0 - Fool - Izanagi
I - Magician - Jack Frost
II - Priestess - Scathach
III - Empress - Isis
IV - Emperor - Odin
V - Hierophant - Kohryu
VI - Lovers - Ishtar
VII - Chariot - Thor
VIII - Justice - Sraosha
IX - Hermit - Ongyo-ki
X - Fortune - Norn
XI - Strength - Siegfried
XII - Hermit - Attis
XIII - Death - Alice
XIV - Temperance - Seiryu
XV - Devil - Beelzebub
XVI - Tower - Yoshitsune
XVII - Star - Helel
XVIII - Moon - Sandalphon
XIX - Sun - Asura
XX - Judgement - Trumpeter
XXI - World - Izanagi-no-Okami
UPDATE: These cards are actually throwable LOL. Except that they are also too thick and too stiff. I'm thinking of redoing them.

You can do commissions without getting sued. It should be fine.
