Let's Talk Black Girl Magic

In March, 2016, writer, artist, and cosplayer Briana Lawrence (also known as "Brichibi Cosplays") was getting ready for her first convention of the year. She had a pile of things to do, but instead, she felt the urge to create something new. She began sketching a girl and, at the time, she didn’t think much of it, but that girl would later become the leader of a group of extraordinary women. “Galactic Purple” was the first magical girl Briana created, and soon, three others joined her: “Cosmic Green,” “Radical Rainbow,” and “Prism Pink.” She also created one more character, a goddess only known as, “Heavenly Universe.”

At the time, none of the characters had names beyond their magical girl titles. They didn’t have personalities, back stories, likes, dislikes… they were blank slates. But, over time, each girl developed into a character. More importantly, the girls came together as a team, and Briana began putting together an outline for a book series. Each book will explore each of the girls and their relationships with one another, along with their interactions with others — both in their magical and everyday lives.

From writing unique, new worlds, making geeky crafts, and cosplaying the characters she loves, Briana Lawrence (known as “Brichibi Cosplays”) is a black, queer, plus sized bag of tricks out to spread positivity into the world.

The Journey

Since March 2016, Briana has been travelling to numerous conventions to spread the word about her new book series. She's done this by having prints, crafts, preview books, and buttons of the girls at her art table.

Because of her convention travels and her constant promotion of her girls, she's already creating a fan base for them, and many are anxious to read their story.

Book One: I Am Magical

There’s a city. It’s like most other cities. Buildings. People. Monsters who can destroy sidewalks by vomiting acid onto the ground, and an elite group of black, queer, magical girls who work to put those monsters in their place.

See? Just like most other cities.

Bree Danvers would’ve compared it to a video game, maybe a cartoon or comic book, except black girls are rarely the heroines of the story. But there her heroine stood, plus sized and wonderful, rocking a dazzling amount of purple and defeating monsters with galactic sparkles. Galactic Purple, that was her name, and soon, Bree was joining her on a magical adventure full of transformations and after school battles to defend a city like most other cities.

And soon, others would join them, and each one would be magical in their own way… give or take a few bumps on the acid covered ground.

The Ladies of magnifiqueNOIR

The four main girls, transformed!
The four main girls, transformed!

Galactic Purple: Don't let anyone tell you that you're not Magical. 

Marianna Jacobs is an 18-year-old college student with dreams of being a baker. She often does things by the book and could be considered as the leader of the group. She’s kindhearted and always wants to do what’s best for everyone, which can, occasionally, lead to her stressing out or raising her voice when someone (normally Bree) messes up her perfect flow. As a plus sized girl, she sometimes has moments of being insecure about her weight, but as she progresses as a magical girl, she’s becoming more confident in herself.  

Cosmic Green: I'll show you how Magical I am.

18-year-old Bree Danvers is a huge gaming geek who is always the first in line at midnight launches, which means she gets really pissed off if she can’t pick up a new title because some monster is attacking the city. She has a YouTube channel ("Cosmickaze Bree") where she plays video games and talks about being a magical girl, complete with details of her battles and how much she kicks ass. This worries Marianna, but no one watching the channel believes Bree, anyway. They just think she’s obsessed with magical girls. Still, if you get on her bad side, she’ll tell you to your face just how magical she is.

Radical Rainbow: Stand and Fight to be Magical.

20-year-old Lonnie Knox is a kickboxer who joins Marianna and Bree to help keep them more focused. She’s never one to back down from a fight and always tries her best to protect those closest to her. Out of all of the girls, she’s the one most likely to be able to handle herself even without the use of her powers. Due to her athleticism, she’s a bit on the muscular side, something that she sometimes gets criticized for since some people feel that she’s “too much like a man.” She tries her best to ignore the comments and feels that revealing her insecurities is a sign of weakness, but as she gets closer to the girls she realizes that it’s o.k. for her to falter, as long as she stands back up again.

Prism Pink: I'm just as Magical as everyone else.

Not much is known about Prism Pink, but she has a habit of showing up when battles get too tough for the other girls. Whether it’s assisting in a fight, or offering advice, she’s an important part of the team… even if she doesn’t stick around long enough for the girls to find out who she is. Lonnie is determined to find out more about her, and as the story progresses, this pink enchantress may be growing fond of the rainbow warrior. Prism Pink is as strong as she is elegant, and is out to prove that she, and others like her, are just as valuable as every other girl.

THE KICKSTARTER!

Now it's time to get down to the glitter and sparkles. magnifiqueNOIR is going to be a mix of creativity. The first book, "I Am Magical," will not only be a full-length novel written by me, but it'll also feature a variety of art to represent some of the key moments in the story. This art will be done by an amazing group of artists who have teamed up with me to tell this story. 

"Time to Go to Work" by MuseTap Studios.
"Time to Go to Work" by MuseTap Studios.

 

The best part? The art will be in full color for the release of the book!

"This Isn't A Lie" by NamiOki.

Along with this amazing series of artwork, the book will have several mini-comics that explore the lives of the girls. This will range from their everyday lives, to their lives when they're in battle. These little comics will be done by me and will also be in full color.

"How Insults Work"

When I decided to create the series, I wanted a combination of artistry to represent these women. You'll be able to read their story and have illustrations to go along with it.

Synopsis for "Seeking the Storyteller"

I know of the Storyteller, it whispers into the man’s ear, I’ve met him. If you promise not to kill me, I’ll take you to him.  

Alix Andre DeBenit and Randall Fagan are Hunters, part of a hidden network of humans who track and kill the monsters lurking in our world so everyone else can pretend they don’t exist. But when a living shadow mentions someone called the Storyteller, Alix hesitantly decides to learn more.  

They say the Storyteller lives in a massive library full of books that tell every being’s life story. He can read these books, rewrite them and change anything he wants, even if it’s already happened. That’s the power Alix wants, the power to bring his murdered family back and he’s determined to make the Storyteller do it. He just has to decide if working with the very creatures he’s supposed to kill is worth it.

"Beneath the Chapter" takes place 3 months after the first book.

Synopsis for "The Little Book of Big Babes"

Representation is a powerful thing. It can help shape who we are, who we aspire to be, and how we view the world around us. It can also give us a stronger sense of self and affirmation of identity. Though fat bodies are finally starting to find their way into mainstream media, we must continue to strive for more diversity and positive representation. Over 150 fatties from around the world contributed to "The Little Book of Big Babes" in an effort to provide a more diverse picture of fatness and fatshion. It is our hope that this book will inspire others, break down fat stereotypes, and change negative attitudes toward fat people.

What Is A Hug Me Hero?

Hug Me Heroes are soft and cuddly friends that you can add to your collection or snuggle with whenever the mood suits you. They are similar to teddy bears, only they look like your favorite characters. In this case, they will look like the ladies of magnifiqueNOIR! Since they are handmade, there will be a very limited number of them. The picture will show a sketch of what one will look like, along with an example of a finished Hug Me Hero.

What do the pillows look like?

There will be sketches of the planned pillows soon, but they generally come out looking like this:

What do the individual Digital Wallpapers for the girls look like?

THIS! They will each have one in this style:

 

What happens when the initial goal is met? Well we move onto STRETCH GOALS! Each goal will unlock a product that I will:

  • Add on to certain tiers
  • Add on as merchandise backers can buy if it's not part of their tier
  • Be able to look at having at the conventions I travel to so I can expand the magnifiqueNOIR brand

If this goal is unlocked, I will be able to have two magnifiqueNOIR specific bath items produced: a cupcake shaped bath bomb modeled after Galactic Purple’s signature attack, and a soap bar that’ll actually have the magnifiqueNOIR logo on it! While these items are featured in a few limited tiers, if this goal is unlocked, they will become add-ons that others can purchase (but ONLY these two, the other bath items in those tiers are exclusive to those tiers).  

All bath items will be produced by Laughing Goddess Magikal Apothecary. Pictures coming soon!

Results of the Cupcake Bath Bomb may vary...

If this goal is unlocked, I will be able to start production on charms. An example image of what the charms would look like is in the Craft-On section. With this goal reached, certain tiers will be gifted with a charm, but it’ll also become an add-on so others can purchase one (or more) of their favorite girl! Keep your eyes open, because more characters may be receiving charms over time.

With this goal unlocked, I’ll be able to commission even more art for the book! On top of that, more art will be added to the Print Section, and certain tiers will be gifted with new prints.

Potential extra art from Sakura Mochi Panda!

That’s right, you can have your very own magnifiqueNOIR art book! If this goal is reached, I’ll be able to produce art books that feature the various art from the different artists I’m working with along with some of my own sketches and progress pictures of the girls! Certain tiers will be gifted this product when this tier is reached, but it’ll also be an add-on!

If this goal is unlocked, I’ll be able to produce a prequel comic that goes into the story of “The Girl in Purple”, who became somewhat of a whispered legend in town before magnifiqueNOIR became a team. I have an artist in mind for the project, and if this goal is reached, the comic will be fully-colored and be put into print. Certain tiers will be gifted this comic, but it will also be a purchasable add-on.

 

My wonderful partner, Jessica, does all the sewing in the relationship. Recently, she’s begun making pillows (which there are examples of in this campaign) and has plans of making pillows based on the girls. This can range from beautiful silhouettes, to pillows based on their outfits, the possibilities are endless! If this goal is reached, we’ll be able to start production on pillows and expedite the process by upgrading our tools and looking at more options. There are very few tiers that feature pillows, but if we hit this goal, we’ll be able to make them an add-on.

Photos of potential pillows coming soon!

If this goal is reached, I’ll be able to look into having cute bags produced of each of the goals. I have a design in mind I’d like to have done, and with this goal unlocked, I’ll be able to take the steps to make these bags. They will also become an add-on for everyone to be able to purchase a bag of their favorite girl.

A potential design for cosmetic bags

If this goal is reached, my partner and I will be able to look into making itty bitty adorable plushies of the girls! This will be the opposite of the larger Hug Me Heroes and would be able to fit in the palm of your hand. These would be perfect for collecting and lining your shelves with.

Pictures to come!

The final stretch goal, if reached, will allow us to look at creating all sorts of fun things of the girls. This can range from coloring books, to stationery items, more complicated plushies like the Friendipals, and maybe even clothing items. This goal would really open the door to what can be done with the magnifiqueNOIR universe. When this goal is reached, keep your eyes open, because there’s no telling what’s gonna happen next!

Also, as a huge THANK YOU, if this goal is met I will give EVERYONE a coupon code to use in order to purchase one of these future items at a discount. These items will be available on my website, and I'll post updates on when they start to become available.

Don't worry, magical ones, there's an answer! With the initial goal of this Kickstarter, I'll be able to launch the first book in the series early next year. The money will be going toward the following: 

  • Paying all of the artists/crafters involved in the project 
  • Paying for editing 
  • Paying for formatting (both physical copies and ebooks) 
  • Paying for an ISBN 
  • Printing the books and the prints 
  • Packing supplies for all items (books and bonuses) 
  • Fees

Once this project is over, work on the book will begin immediately! All artists will be paid, and I’ll be able to have it edited, formatted, and ready for next year! Also, depending on what stretch goals are met, production on those items will begin as well. If by chance this project goes OVER the stretch goals, that extra money will go right into the project to create more merchandise for the magnifiqueNOIR brand. It can also be used for more supplies, to travel to more conventions, essentially, I will do everything in my power to make these girls flourish.  

Special thanks to the participating artists and crafters (confirmed so far):

Risks and challenges

There are a great number of risks when it comes to self publishing. Beyond the lingering stigma, there’s a chance that this book series could be overlooked. There’s a chance that it won’t sell to anyone beyond this month long project and it’ll be left in the back of my closet. There’s a chance that I won’t get into all the conventions I’ve tried for, which would limit the amount of promotion I want to do.

On a more personal note, while there is support for queer voices of color, there are a lot of people who may not give this project a chance simply because of the race and sexual orientation of not just the lead characters, but of myself. That’s something I have to face as a black, queer writer, but if nothing else, it’s taught me to be persistent.

I’ve been going to conventions across the country with my work, giving panels on diversity, and working to make myself a person who stands out -- and I aim to make that shine through with my work. Next year, I plan to have a major focus on this series -- not just as a book, but as a brand. I plan on having books along with expanded merchandise of the ladies, moving beyond just printed and paper items.

I'm already well into planning my convention season for 2017. I am confirmed for some already, as either an artist with a table or a guest, and the registration period for several others will open up soon. Given my track record of selling at conventions and how many there are, I have no doubt my schedule will be full before I know it. I also still have conventions for the rest of 2016 where I can promote not just the Kickstarter, but the ladies themselves.

I already know that I have an audience that I've built up over the last few years with conventions and my social media presence and I've had success with my previous novels sales at each convention. However, as "magnifiqueNOIR" has no traditional publisher and is a novel of full color pictures and fiction, there's a significant cost up front to have the book created, illustrated, formatted, and printed.

Currently, the book is in the rough draft stage and is awaiting editing. The reason why the actual release is in March is so that there will be time to edit, format, and get the book as close to pristine as I can for publication. That should also, hopefully, give me enough time to get it printed and to get everything in from the artists I’ve chosen to work on this. I will keep everyone up to date along the way and be transparent about everything, so if something happens to slow down the release, the backers will be the firsts to know.

Thank you for checking out my Kickstarter, and don't forget: you are magical.
