About

Our favorite magical girl squad is back for their regularly scheduled program. 

Kind of.

After the last colossal battle, Marianna, Bree, and Lonnie are trying their best to recover, but the daily monsters don’t give a lick about self-doubt and personal struggles. Fortunately, Prism Pink is there to lend a hand, turning the trio into a courageous group of girls who can take on whatever threat comes their way. 

There’s just one problem: they still don’t know who Prism Pink is or where she came from. 

In fact, where did any of this come from?

The monsters. The magical powers. What does any of it mean? It’s time to start getting answers, but are the girls ready to hear the truth? Knowledge is power, as they say, but power is fickle and can be corrupted so easily. After all, Blaze never said what happened to the previous generation of magnifiqueNOIR, did she?

What is magnifiqueNOIR?

"The girls are strong, but they also have disagreements. They cry, they love, they encourage each other and support one another. They do everything that I—and other black women—do as people. I talk a lot about representation and have a lot of discussions about the issues in the communities I’m involved with. So I decided to have some of that in the story. One of the things I love about geek content (like anime and comics) is that their stories are about people...they just so happen to have super powers. There’s so many coming-of-age stories wrapped in magical powers and mecha. There’s so many topics that are tackled in these stories and I wanted to do the same thing—just with black, queer girls." - quote from my interview with Pride.com.

On October 3rd, 2017, I released the first in a series of books that set out to tell the story of a group of black, queer, magical girls. I've always been drawn to the magical girl genre, having grown up with the likes of Sailor Moon and having cried many tears over Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I wanted to write my own magical girl adventure, only I wanted it to feature characters who reflected who I am: a black, queer woman.

magnifiqueNOIR centers on four college-aged girls, each one with their own backstory and powers to aid in defending the city. The girls report to a woman by the name of Golden Blaze - a retired magical girl who was part of the original magnifiqueNOIR. However, with monsters lurking the streets and leaving the city in shambles, Blaze set out to recreate the team. 

The first book, I Am Magical, was the introduction to the magical world I created. It let readers get acquainted with the new generation of magical girls. Galactic Purple serves as the group's leader, using her daytime baking skills to eradicate monsters with sweet, delicious treats. Cosmic Green is the resident gamer, manipulating pixels to bring her opponents to a quick GAME OVER screen. Radical Rainbow is the muscle - as every squad makes sure they have a brawler. She uses her kickboxing to make enemies wish they never got into the ring with her. And then there's Prism Pink, the wild card who appears when the other three are in trouble. Like every good seamstress she uses her tools to her advantage... not the fabric scissors, though, never the fabric scissors.

After an intense final battle and a nearly destroyed city, the ladies were left with several unanswered questions. That's where You Are Magical comes in.

In this next installment of the magnifiqueNOIR saga, our heroines are working to figure out where these grotesque monsters are coming from. Oh. And finding out Prism Pink's identity would be great, too... except there's apparently ANOTHER magical girl out there: Starlight Blue. Surprisingly, Blaze seems to know a lot about her, unfortunately, none of it is good.

Did this new, blue tinted beauty really betray Blaze twenty years ago? Is she the reason why the original team came to an end?

Who the heck is Briana Lawrence, anyway?

Writer. Cosplayer. Panelist. Fandom trash. Twitter thread connoisseur. Cheesecake enthusiast. 

These are just a few of the things that describe me. 

You may know me as Brichibi Cosplays, that plus size black gal who most definitely fried chicken in response to bullying many moons ago. Or you may know me as Briana, writer of articles that delve into social issues, occasionally linking them to whatever fandom I'm into. And then there's Bri, that girl who's way behind on her fanfics, the one who keeps adopting anime kids then regretting it because they go through so much pain and suffering. 

Or maybe you don't know me at all. 

If that's the case then HI! My name is Briana Lawrence, or Brichibi Cosplays, or that girl still playing Breath of the Wild. I spend my days traveling to conventions where I discuss the importance of representation, promote my work, and try desperately to keep my growing collection of those damn Funko Pops under control. I've written freelance for places like The Root, SyFy, Essence, Into, Autostraddle, Inverse, Black Youth Project, Uncanny Magazine, and I Need Diverse Games. Oh, and there's a chance you've heard a script of mine being narrated on WatchMojo.com and their various channels. 

Here's the deal. They say that if you want more diversity you need to create it yourself. My work is a not-so-subtle triple dog dare to that statement. With magnifiqueNOIR, I'm trying my best to create a series full of fun, wonderful characters that represent marginalized voices like my own. I basically want to make something that my younger, hesitant to come out of the closet self would've loved to have as an example of black, queer positivity. 

We're out here, telling our stories. I'm just one of many voices and I hope that it's a voice you'll want to support.


The reviews are in: magnifiqueNOIR is magical!

"To see an entire team of Black queer women fight monsters with powers related to their everyday lives was empowering. It showed me the importance of Black queer women learning to understand and support each other as friends, romantic partners, and as a chosen family." -  Latonya Pennington for Wear Your Voice. 

"This is why writing and reading diversity is so important: it opens us up to a world we don’t understand, while also providing voices to people who often get left out of books." - DMac for Just Love Reviews.

“As a youth services librarian, the one thing I hear the most from my kids is that they want good stories that feature people like them. Especially good geek culture stories. Anime, Video Games, comics…these are the things they love, and the things they are aching to see themselves in. While that range of characters and experiences in entertainment is getting better, it’s still sorely lacking. So when I heard about MagnifiqueNoir’s black queer magical girl characters, I was cautiously optimistic. Representation in fiction is vital, but representation in a good story even more so. I can honestly say, that my optimism was well invested.” – Sarah T. Hodge. Check out more reviews on Amazon.

The Campaign: "You Are Magical"

All right, magical ones, let's get down to business! magnifiqueNOIR is a unique reading experience, offering a combination of my words and art from several different artists, each one illustrating my characters in their own art style.  

Inside peak at the first book "I Am Magical" Art by Jenn St-Onge.
Inside peak at the first book "I Am Magical" Art by Jenn St-Onge.

I also have some art in the book, too, in the form of fun, mini-comics that show the antics of the girls' everyday lives (done in the style of the mini-comic for the campaign section).

The main campaign will cover the expenses of:

  • Paying artists 
  • Getting the book printed
  • Getting merchandise created and printed
  • Formatting the book (physical and eBook versions)
  • Publishing fees (ISBN, set up fees, ect.)
  • Kickstarter fees 
  • Shipping

The initial goal is primarily for the production of the book with a small amount dedicated to things like stickers, buttons, and prints. Stretch goals will be for brand new merchandise, ranging from bookmarks, enamel pins, and (gasp) body pillows! More details on these fun extras will be toward the end of this page.

ARTISTS

Many of the artists from the first book are up for returning for the second one. I've been in contact with them and have reached out to brand new creatives as well. Here is a list of artists who have gotten back to me. Their participation will depend on how much money is raised in the campaign since funding will go toward paying them, so this list is subject to change:

RETURNING ARTISTS

NEW ARTISTS

MERCHANDISE ARTISTS

  •  Nozomi Neko [button artist]
  •  MuseTap Studios [sticker artist AND body pillow artist if Full Body Snuggle stretch goal is reached]
  •  Bleached Kitten [button artist if All The Small Things stretch goal is reached]
  •  Sakura Mochi Panda [bookmark artist if Don't Lose Your Way stretch goal is reached]

TIERS

No matter what tier you pledge, your name will be put on the thank you page of my website (www.magnifiquenoir.com) Once the campaign ends I will send out backer surveys to collect the name you'd like to have listed (or if you want to remain anonymous, that's fine, too)

At the $5 tier and above, you'll receive a 4 x 6 thank you postcard from me. The postcard will feature art from Berry Blitz Studio, who did this piece of art for the last book:

"Black Prism Power: Make Up!" by Berry Blitz Studio
"Black Prism Power: Make Up!" by Berry Blitz Studio

The fandom crossover for the second book will be BLACK PANTHER, more specifically, the DORA MILAJE, so please enjoy the postcard when you pledge tiers that start at $5. 

After that, the tiers feature the book in some capacity (either electronically or physically). If you pledge the eBook only tier you'll get a digital copy of the postcard emailed with the book. Oh! And be sure to check out the EARLY BIRD TIER: Starlight Express: 

What makes this tier so special? Well it comes with the book and some extra merch of the new girl Starlight Blue AT NO EXTRA COST! That's right, you can snag three stickers AND an exclusive postcard FOR FREE! Get this tier while supplies last!

Unless, of course, you're interested in some bigger bundles: 

The next tier Ode to Book Havens has multiple copies of both the first book I Am Magical AND the second book You Are Magical (along with prints of both covers and bookmarks if that stretch goal is reached). This tier is perfect for bookstores and/or libraries that wish to introduce the series to their patrons as it includes part one AND part two of the adventure. 

And then there's... the final tier: 

Basically, you will get every single piece of merchandise that I have to offer, both old and new, for magnifiqueNOIR. You also get every single stretch goal as it's met (save for the body pillow case, in which you'll have to pick one that you want). Last, and probably least, but still pretty cool: you get an online chat session with me about the series. THERE ARE ONLY 5 OF THESE AVAILABLE so grab em' while you can!

Add A Little Something Extra

Wanna add something else that isn't offered in your tier? No worries, I've got you covered! Simply add the dollar amounts listed for each item below. Please take note of the instructions depending on your location (U.S. or International shipping) 

Here is a rundown of the extra categories:

PRINTS

You can find a catalog of the existing prints HERE. Once the campaign ends, I'll send out backer surveys that'll let you mark which print(s) you want. Prints have two sizes: 8.5 x 11 and 11 x 17. Unfortunately, I can't alter the sizes of them at this time, so each print comes in the size it's marked at. New prints for the second book include:

  •  You Are Magical book cover (11 x 17) will be illustrated by Jenn St-Onge.
  •  magnifiqueFOREVER (11 x 17) will be illustrated by Berry Blitz Studio.
  •  Her Name Is Starlight Blue (11 x 17) will be illustrated by Ann Uland.
  • Prism Pink's new attack: Needlepoint Shower  (11 x 17) will be illustrated by Radiant Grey.
  • A little R&R with Marianna, Bree, Lonnie, and Blaze: Dibs On Yoshi (11 x 17) will be illustrated by Sakura Mochi Panda.
  •  Magical Burlesque Dancer Kayla Pierce (11 x 17) will be illustrated by MuseTap Studios.

For these new prints, images of what they look like will be shared once the art is finished.

The "exclusive" postcard is ONLY for the bundles it's marked with. When the campaign is over, you will be asked on the backer survey which postcard(s) you want. 

Stretch Them Goals Girl

What happens after the campaign hits its initial funding? Well, we move on to bigger things! Below are SIX MAGICAL STRETCH GOALS that'll help in building the magnifiqueNOIR franchise!

The book is already full of wonderfully vibrant art. 

But. 

What if. 

There was more? 

If this stretch goal is reached more art will be added to the book. Not only that, more prints will be available for purchase! If you pledged the Unapologetically Here tier, you'll be able to pick one of three 11 x 17 prints depicting our girls with their love interests at the end of the campaign. If you've pledged The Tier That Does The Absolute Most then you'll get all three prints! If you haven't pledged either of these tiers and would like a print, it'll be added to the list of add-ons once this goal is met. 

The money in this stretch goal will go toward paying artists, paying to produce prints, and paying to fulfill backer orders.

Because there’s always room for more buttons and stickers, this stretch goal takes care of more of the small things that are waiting to become part of your collection. The following tiers comes with extra items from this stretch goal: 

  •  Choose Your Magical Girl 
  • More Pieces Of Flair
  • Know Your History
  • Unapologetically Here
  • The Tier That Does The Absolute Most

If you haven't pledged these tiers and would like any of these items, it'll be added to the list of add-ons once this goal is met.  Here is a taste of some of the extras this stretch goal includes:

If you read the first book, you'll remember Kayla as Bree's classmate and resident girl crush. Meanwhile, Dana is Marianna's best friend turned potential love interest. By reaching this goal I'll be able to create merchandise for these two characters, which means that every magical girl on the team has her love interest to match with her (Radical Rainbow and Prism Pink already have merchandise and are each other's love interests). 

You'll also notice the new set of buttons which shows our heroines in their regular forms, the two new I Am Magical stickers to represent the demi-spectrum, and the full body Pandasaur - the mascot of the coffee shop Kayla frequents. 

The money in this stretch goal will go toward paying the artists creating the chibi stickers and the new buttons. It'll also go toward the production of the merchandise and paying to fulfill backer orders.

Losing your place when reading is... well... maybe not the absolute worst thing that could happen... but it’s pretty annoying, yeah? Bookmarks to the rescue! Not just any ol’ bookmarks, but METAL AS HECK BOOKMARKS! 

There are seven bookmarks that will be produced. They are:

  • Galactic Purple
  • Cosmic Green
  • Radical Rainbow
  • Prism Pink
  • Golden Blaze
  • Starlight Blue
  • All four girls together

 The following tiers come with extra items from this stretch goal:  

  • Choose Your Magical Girl
  • Treat YourSHELF
  • Know Your History
  • Ode To Book Havens
  • The Tier That Does The Absolute Most

If you haven't pledged these tiers and would like any of these items, they'll be added to the list of add-ons. 

The money in this stretch goal will go toward paying the artists creating each image for the bookmarks. It'll also go toward the production of the merchandise and paying to fulfill backer orders.

Enamel pins, y’all. 

You demanded it (or rather, you gently inquired about them) and I’m here to provide the first set of pins for magnifiqueNOIR! The pins will be eight, count em’, EIGHT of the characters as merbabes, each one representing a different part of the queer spectrum. Here are the six that are finished:

The last two will be Starlight Blue representing the black, queer flag, and Dana representing the demi spectrum. Pictures of what they'll look like as merbabes will be shared as soon as they're done.

The following tiers come with an enamel pin:

  • Choose Your Magical Girl 
  • More Pieces of Flair  
  • Know Your History 
  • Unapologetically Here 
  • The Tier That Does The Absolute Most 

If your tier lets you pick your pin, you'll be able to do so at the end of the campaign via the backer survey that'll be sent out. If your have a themed tier, your pin(s) will match that theme (for example: Know Your History will have a pin for Golden Blaze and Starlight Blue).  If you haven't pledged these tiers and would like a pin, it'll be added to the list of add-ons once this goal is met.  

The money in this stretch goal will go toward creating the pins, the set up fee to create the pins/get samples of them, and paying to fulfill backer orders.

You got a taste of this in the All The Small Things goal, but now it's time to go all out! A combination of the best things in life: coffee and pandas. This cafe was briefly mentioned in the first book and will be a more prominent space in this next adventure. So why not own some merch of the store’s adorable mascot? Part panda, part dinosaur, part coffee enthusiast, all huggable, this goal will let me release the following items: 

Panda's First Sticker Sheet 


Panda Shoots Their Shot Again Sticker Sheet


The Six Inch Panda Pal Plush 


That's right, a plushie of this adorable chub of dino fluff! Perfect for keeping you company, especially during your morning coffee. Or... whenever you drink coffee, or tea, or your beverage of choice - panda isn't picky.

The only tier that comes with these items is The Tier That Does The Absolute Most. These items will be added to the list of add-ons once this goal is met.  

The money in this stretch goal will go toward producing the sticker sheets, creating the plushie, and paying to fulfill backer orders.

All good things must come as a pillow case. The final stretch goal will allow me to begin production on body pillow cases. Featuring our four leading ladies, the only tier that comes with a pillow case is The Tier That Does The Absolute Most. Backers of this tier will be able to choose a pillow case of either Galactic Purple, Cosmic Green, Radical Rainbow, or Prism Pink via backer survey when the campaign ends.The pillow cases will be added to the list of add-ons once this goal is met.

The money from this goal will cover the cost of getting art done of the girls, creating the pillow cases, and paying to fulfill backer orders.

What Happens If You Surpass This Last Goal?

After a wild night of celebrating (wild meaning going out to dinner then coming home to play Mortal Kombat 11) I will use anything else that's made toward getting even more art for the book and getting more merchandise made of the items created for this campaign so I can build up an inventory for my online store and convention travels. I am also open to looking into new items: acrylic standees, art books, T-shirts, the possibilities are endless!

Risks and challenges

As "magnifiqueNOIR" has no traditional publisher and is a visual novel of full-color pictures, there's a significant cost up front to have the book created, illustrated, formatted, and printed. Throughout the process, there are a great number of challenges that can come up. Issues can come up with printing - both the book and merchandise accompanying it. There are also costs I may not have accounted for.

Beyond the lingering stigma of self-publishing, there’s a chance that this book series could be overlooked. There’s a chance that this story won’t sell to anyone beyond this month long project and it’ll be left in the back of my closet. There are also risks in working with numerous people as things could go wrong on either of our ends.

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.

The reassurance I can offer is this: this is the second installment of a work that many people have supported. From the release of the book in 2017 to today, magnifiqueNOIR continues to be the best selling work I've ever released. The excitement for this next book has been unbelievable, and I'm anxious to present it to you all. I've spent years building an audience for my work, and I can proudly say that my audience has increased, especially with this series, and they're excited to see what "You Are Magical" has to offer.

The artists I've been in contact with are individuals I've worked with before. They are great at keeping in contact with me so I know how the work is progressing. As far as the new artists who have joined are concerned, I already have faith in their work ethic as they've outlined their schedules with me to let me know when they, realistically, can finish their pieces. Everyone is ready to start work as soon as the campaign ends. I also have back up artists I can contact if any current plans fall through.

The book itself is being edited right now and once the campaign ends I'll be using that month to do the final readthrough so it can be ready for my formatter. While October is the scheduled release, if anything does come up to delay that I guarantee immediate communication and transparency. I'm very active on social media and frequently check my email should anyone have any questions or concerns after the campaign. While I will be updating backers on the progress, I understand if there's something that anyone would like to address directly to me. Backers will be shown glimpses of art, merchandise, and I'll share the progress of the book itself (formatting, printing, ect.)

When I'm not at home, I'll be at conventions throughout the summer promoting my work: the second book in particular. I will have tables at numerous shows throughout the country and will be giving panels on diversity and representation, which perfectly aligns with my work.

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