So what happens now?
Well… WE KEEP GOING!
You can still keep pledging as the campaign has a little over a week left before it’s over (so if you missed out, don’t worry, there’s still time!). Any extra money that is accumulated will go toward MORE MAGICAL GIRL STUFF! More art. More products. Fully colored images inside the book. Any and ALL of that can be a possibility depending on how much is earned from now until the end of the campaign.
I really want to thank all of you for supporting this creation of mine. It means a lot to see so many people believing in these girls. I’m excited to present the book to all of you, have it at conventions, and essentially spread the queer black girl magic!
Don’t forget: you are magical!
Campaign link is HERE!
Good morning, magical ones! We are at 31% of the funding! That is INCREDIBLE! Thank you SO MUCH for all of the support early on in this campaign! Remember to use #magnifiqueNOIR when talking about it on social media. Also, remember that you can keep track of what’s happening up to date with the event page, and the campaign itself is HERE!
Also, check out these updates:
- The CONVENTION SCHEDULE has been updated with another show I’ll be appearing at: Naka-Kon!!! I will most definitely have some magical girl merchandise and will be doing panels about cosplay bullying, diversity, representation, and loving yourself. I’ll update with times and table location as soon as I get the details.
- The OTHER MAGICAL WORKS section has been updated with more jobs from WatchMojo.com and MsMojo that I wrote the scripts for.
That’s all, and don’t forget: you are magical!
All right, magical ones, it is TIME! The Indiegogo IS HERE!!! Please click on the image below to get there!
The event page is RIGHT HERE if you want more up to date information. This time, I’m aiming to get enough to print the book with black and white images but will have a stretch goal of making it fully colored 🙂
Also, feast your eyes on these magical updates:
- The CONVENTION SCHEDULE has been updated with more shows I’ll be appearing at. I will most definitely have some magical girl merchandise and will most likely be doing panels about cosplay bullying, diversity, representation, and loving yourself.
- The OTHER MAGICAL WORKS section has been updated with more jobs from WatchMojo.com and MsMojo that I wrote the scripts for. There’s also new articles in the Twin Cities Geek section, including an introspective look at “Hidden Figures.”
Good day, magical ones! Just wanted to announce an update in the CONVENTION SCHEDULE! My partner and I will be appearing at Orycon 39 as guests! The convention is next November (17 – 19th) and we’re both very excited 🙂
Stay tuned for more updates!
This year, my partner and I went to the most conventions we’ve ever done! Now that the convention season is over for us, we’ll be preparing for next year. We’re looking into crowdfunding the girls again, but at the beginning of next year instead of the end, and we’re still planning on releasing the book early next year as well. I’ll update everyone when I know for sure what we’re doing 🙂
Until then, there are a LOT of updates, so here we go!
1. The OUR STORY tab has been updated with new INTERVIEWS & FEATURES for the series.
2. There are new CHAPTER SNIPPETS for you to read and enjoy, and some even have art to go along with them!
3. NEW SECTION UNLOCKED! There is now a section for COMICS called minifiqueNOIR! These are short, one-shot, stories of the various misadventures of the girls. Each comic is illustrated by me!
4. NEW SECTION UNLOCKED! There is now a section for WALLPAPERS so you can make your computer desktop background a bit more magical.
5. In the MAGICAL SUPPORTERS tab, more FANART has been added!
6. In the OTHER MAGICAL WORKS tab for Freelance Work, the WatchMojo tab for 2016 has been updated with more videos I wrote the script for. Also, the MsMojo section has been updated, too! Happy viewing!
Take care, magical ones <3 <3 <3
Hey everyone! Sadly, it looks like we didn’t get funded. I have to say, this has been one hell of a ride. Between the Kickstarter and the conventions during the campaign it’s been quite the adventure.
I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who have supported this series! I also want to say that just because the Kickstarter didn’t work out doesn’t mean that this is the end. The book WILL STILL BE RELEASED and there will be merchandise to go along with it — some of which you can get BEFORE the book is released. The point of the Kickstarter was to try and get funding to do the ABSOLUTE MOST with this project. It may not have all of the bells and whistles at launch next year, but the bells and whistles it does have will be shiny and neat 🙂
I plan on looking into alternatives and things of that nature, and will do my best to let all of you know when that happens. I’m going to take some time to rest up, but after that, it’ll be back to business!
I also want to let you know that there are several ways to keep up with the girls. We have:
The mailing list: http://eepurl.com/cgyZGf
The Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/magnifiqueNOIR/
And, of course, here on the website! Be on the look out for updates for new merchandise, features, and more!
Thanks everyone, and remember: You are Magical <3
And we’re LIVE! Time for everyone to join and share the magnifiqueNOIR Kickstarter! The revolution will be MAGICAL! There are all sorts of fun tiers, add-ons, exclusives, stretch goals… the works! Pledge, spread the word, share the magic with EVERYONE!
Let’s make “magnifiqueNOIR” EXPLODE with black, queer, female amazement. Let’s show the world how magical we are 🙂
Extra note: When sharing, use the hashtag #magnifiqueNOIR ❤ ❤ ❤

Thank you, everyone! And, as always, don’t forget: YOU ARE MAGICAL!
Yes, it is! If you’re local to the Twin Cities here in Minnesota, you may recognize the Source Comics & Games, who is now carrying copies of my urban fantasy series with my partner, Jessica Walsh. They’re also carrying preview books of magnifiqueNOIR! Thank you so much to the Source team for supporting my work <3 <3 <3
Hello dear magical ones! Now that conventions have slowed down, it’s time for some updates! But first, a message from Galactic Purple:
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s see what we’ve got for you!
1. The MERCHANDISE section has been updated with PRINTS! FINALLY! You can get your very own magnifiqueNOIR 11×17 poster!!! There’s also one more print in the section of our very own Brichibi Cosplays dressed as Wonder Woman!!! The BOOKS section has also been updated with a fun, coloring page set of the original series, FRIENDIPALS, which you may have seen in a certain preview book about a certain group of magical girls. There’s also a WOODWORK section that shows examples of the girls done via woodburning and painting. Don’t forget, you can still get copies of the preview book and the first set of buttons!
2. The CONVENTION SCHEDULE has been updated once again! We have three shows scheduled for October, which will end the convention season for us. However, we’re already planning for 2017. The biggest announcement is that we’ve been invited as guests to Haven Con out in Austin, Texas!!! Not only can you get your tickets HERE, but you can ALSO get a discount by using the word “Cosplay” when purchasing tickets.
3. Can we talk about those MAGICAL SUPPORTERS?! We try and get as many pictures as we can but sometimes, we forget. But the section has been updated with more magical ones 🙂
4. OTHER MAGICAL WORKS has been updated! Check out the WatchMojo.com section for 2016 and you’ll find new videos that I’ve written scripts for. They are:
- Top 10 Video Game Siblings
- Top 5 Pokemon Go Facts
- Anime Duel: Spike Spiegel VS Vash the Stampede
- Sonic 06 VS Sonic Boom
We also have updates in the Twin Cities Geek section with Briana’s powerful peace, “That’s Not Gonna Happen to Me,” in regards to dealing with racism. Last, but not least, in the Other Published Works section, you’ll find Briana’s newest peace for Blackasotan called, “Continue Screen,” where she uses video game metaphors to address social issues.
