Acting Like a Magical Girl
Even though that's everything inside the Standard Gear for Magical Girls Kit, that doesn't mean your worries are over. Next, you have to learn how to act like a Magical Girl. The one thing a Magical Girl needs to remember is that she must always be energetic (genki). It is impossible to have a lazy Magical Girl. The universe would explode. A Magical Girl also should be, if not naive, at the very least extremely optimistic. Leave the worries for the Magical Mascot. The brooding goes to one of your Magical Partners, unless you are nearing the end of the season. And maybe, if you're lucky, you also get to be Smart.

It is a well known statistic that most Magical Girls are Not Smart. (The exact numbers are 3 out of every 4 Magical Girls will be Not Smart.)* This is not to say that they do not become Smart later, but most start and stay that way. Personally, I think it's because they choose to use their Intelligence role for their Strength roll. Anyway. All is not lost! The number one way to become Smart is.... Actually listen to your Magical Mascot! The Magical Mascot's primary reason for existence is to teach you, the Magical Girl, how to use your Magic. When you don't listen or are too shell shocked to listen, you get beaten up easier, which leads to losing brain cells, which leads to loss of Smart. So if you're really pushing for becoming Smart, all you gotta do is listen for once.

*This statistic used data from PreCure, Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, and Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha.

Transforming Into a Magical Girl
All Magical Girls need to have a Transformation Scene. Sorry, forgot about Cardcaptor Sakura. Let's just say that all Magical Girls transform, but most have a Transformation Scene. Anyway. It's (mostly) inevitable. What happens during the Transformation Scene is what counts. Typically, the sequence in a tranformation scene is: Flashy Magic, Pose, Disappearing Clothes, Reappearing Clothes in order of Body Suit > Boots > Gloves > Bows > Weapon, More Flashy Magic, and then Final Pose. Depending on what you're watching, the order can be a little different, but these are the main points. Strive to hit most of these when designing your own Transformation Scene. Don't like showing off your nudity? Invest in Conveniently Placed Magic Swirls that will let you keep your modesty for until you hit puberty. Now, while most Transformation Scenes are supposedly instantaneous, you have to be careful that the enemy doesn't know about the split second vulnerability you have while transforming. Then you might end up with a situation like this:
Ooooooh yeaaaaaaaaaaah... I mean, be careful that something like this doesn't happen to you. Yes.

Dressing as a Magical Girl
Now that you've crafted your Transformation Scene, you have to figure out what exactly it is that you're transforming into. And by this I mean your costume/battle suit, of course, not some strange summon-animal. Anyway, you have to be careful about what you pick. Sure, you may like ribbons and lace *coughTomoyocough*, but if you're above 16 or so, that means you've just been transported into a hentai game. LIkewise, if you go too dark, then you are not the Magical Girl and have, in fact, turned into the Magical Rival. Here are some examples:

This is an example of a typical Magical Girl costume (and strangely conservative considering it's Tomoyo who made it). Note the light colors and skirt. These are some very important points when picking a costume. Pastel colors are preferred and skirts are required. You can, of course, upgrade to pants, but for some reason Magical Girls don't really like that... Here's what happens if you go too dark:

The darker colors practically scream Magical Rival here. Don't like light colors? You could try for the darker colors, but be prepared to be mistaken for the Magical Rival a lot. Actually, if you're an older Magical Girl, it is permissible to have darker colors, cases in point:

As you can see, there is a change towards darker, more serious colors. And of course, black is reserved for Magical Rivals, unless it's only used for accents. And be careful about picking your costume. Unless you have an obsessive best friend who can make new ones in the space of a day, you will be stuck with your costume until you get a power upgrade, and even then, sometimes it doesn't work so well.

That's it for this post. Next time, we talk about Gathering the... Stuff and Keeping the Identity Secret. See ya next time!
