Whenever I see this picture I can't help but smile, I love inter-racial friendships/couples. They make me squeal

I've noticed how I tend to draw Coraline fiddling with her hat, and I find that sassy.
So now they have Keyblades as you can see, let's start with Coraline's.
I drew inspiration with the 3 fantasies that the Other Mother made for her. The handle represents the flowers that tickled her in the magic garden. [link]
The middle represents Other Bobinski's circus uniform. [link]
The blade itself comes from the colors that young Other Spink and Other Forcible wore during their performance in the theatre. [link]
Wybie's inspiration came from his motorbike and skeleton gloves. So I made the handle all "mechanical" with gears and such. The pipes come from his mask [link]
The blade represents his apparent love for skeletons. I wonder if it was a reference to Jack Skellington?
