Help me redesign this magical girl.:
(That Guy You Met Once)I would post it in the project's defacto thread (Dreams & Daydreams, blah blah etc.) but that thread is bloated, slow, and full of Old Shame. So anyway: I spend a year planning (and practicing for) a webcomic about a teenage girl who escapes from her crappy life into a Rule of Cool-powered escapist fantasy in which her Parody Sue Author Avatar fights Aliens and Monsters *... When Sucker Punch happens. There are enough differences to make my version salvageable, but I'm going to need to rework a lot of shit. First of all, said Author Avatar was originally a sailor-suited, Zettai Ryouiki-ed Hot Chick with a Sword. But yeah.◊ Turns out she was basically this with brown hair, a cape, and a bow. I'm not disappointed, though. This is a chance to make her much more interesting. I think I want to make her (a parody of) a more traditional Magical Girl Warrior. Here's what I have so far:

Improable Weapon User/magic user sounds just right. Is their any item or group of items the heroine is obsessed with? Also, I like the idea of the pink HEARTS AND LUV beam being the equivilent to a Wave Motion Gun.

Writer's Welcome WagonSince Babydoll's outfit is Steampunk-style, try either a bright color scheme or a goth-black color scheme. On another note, I might watch Sucker Punch if it's PG-13. It looks so cool. EDIT: Also, stay away from the sailor suit. Sailor Moon already did it, so try something farther from the norm. ...This gives me an idea. :3

Element of loveI am really curios about this. Please show us your prototypes. When could work from there.

Bigonkers! is MagicBetter yet, don't alter the character so much as alter the world in which she lives. It's what I like about my main story: Even if my character doesn't turn out as original as I thought, there's Galaday which is totally me.
(That Guy You Met Once)All I have are unfinished headshots. See the four on the left.◊

(That Guy You Met Once)Anyone?
Going on your saying that it starts off as being quite a generic magical girl fantasy but then starts to change (it gets darker, grittier, more realistic?), perhaps you could start out as a magical girl stereotype, then slowly change her as the world around her changes. The movie girl pretty much has got a generic magical girl look, albeit in an American movie, not an anime. It sounds like a pretty interesting idea, I hope you can make it work.
(That Guy You Met Once)It Gets Weirder would be a much more accurate Pot Hole, but since it doesn't exist, I had to go with It Gets Worse. And it does get kind of worse too (the whole series takes a turn for the Surreal Horror), so I guess it's accurate. That's a good idea. I was considering starting In Medias Res, but I think , especially since I hate when shows do that. And I was actually considering having her powers get more random as the series goes on, but I still have no idea what said powers could actually be (I think I want to debut the attack that makes people explode later on in the series, maybe.)

So her powers maybe get mixed up? Like, at the beginning, when she uses a sparkle-zap or whatever, it's played straight. But later she shoots it at someone later on and they explode, possibly? Perhaps, later on, you could keep changing things about her appearance around at random, then, as if she can't decide what she wants to look like?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
