About the Collection
Magic Girl™️ (Mintlodica's Version) returns!
DSA Magic Girl sparked an aesthetics movement within the Mechanical Keyboards hobby back in 2019. As one of the first sets on the market that boldly introduced a cute and feminine palette, Magic Girl inspired a wave of lowercase alphas, softer colors, and uniform keycaps out of CuteKeyboard.Club and other like-minded communities.
For her Third Anniversary, Magic Girl has invoked her ultimate form. This refreshed version hones in on the original details which made the set so special: Perfected typography alignment, refined pastel colors true to Susan's original vision, and upgraded novelty icons.
Pre-order ended. Check Product Status Updates.
A New Millennium
Celebrating the third anniversary
Magic Girl channels nostalgic 90's shoujo manga and anime iconography to power up your workspace.
Wands: Featuring new and refreshed classic Magic Girl novelty wands! You'll recognize these from the protagonists who gave us hope while growing up.
Familiars: No Magic Girl is complete without her trusty sidekicks. Take them with you wherever you go.
Celestial Symbols: Moons, Stars, Wings bring us high to the sky.
Soft Symbols: Flowers and Ribbons ground us and tie together our iconic uniforms.
We worked with illustrator Matthew Wong to bring you this special Limited Edition box art. Each Base Kit ships in this box along with a matching postcard and sticker.
The magic is in the details
Mintlodica has grown as a designer since Magic Girl's creation back in 2019 and the new details will come together in your new sets.
The Classic colorway features updated novelties from the original that everyone loved so much.
The Dark colorway features refreshed colors to bring the twilight blue closer to Susan's original vision. The blue will be more akin to the concept art from 90's shoujo series that the colorway was inspired by.
The new limited edition Millennium colorway is homage to the cycle of old and new. We wanted to draw inspiration from where it all began so that we can transform into a newer and better version of ourselves.
All three colorways now have matching wands befitting each theme.
Magic Girl (Mintlodica's Version)
- Mint keycaps in the Classic colorway will appear softer than previous versions.
- Navy keycaps in the Dark colorway are more blue compared to previous versions.
- Gradient alpha legends in Dark colorway are now more legible.
- The purple legends in the Dark colorway has been changed to pastel pink.
- Quote legends now have matching glyphs.
- R3 is produced by Signature Plastics so the keycaps will be lightly textured ABS keycaps compared to previous versions which are smooth.
- All alpha legends are now perfectly aligned thanks to doubleshot molds.
- Millennium - limited edition colorway!
- Gradient alpha matched novelties in the Dark colorway.
- All new novelty icons in 1u and larger sizes.
Every color has been fine tuned to be more pastel to create a more cohesive color story. Please bear in mind the changes listed are subtle.
Notes from the designer
"Every day after school, I'd rush home to catch 30 minutes of bliss. These shoujo series opened my eyes to empowerment in a way that hadn't existed before.
Back then, what I had were printer paper and crayons. Armed with those tools, I imagined a world with my own magical girl warrior to thrive in. This was one of the core defining eras for my creativity which eventually lead to where I am today.
Clearly I'm not alone in these feelings. Many people grew up being inspired by these beloved characters and have gone on to become artists and creators in their own right. Thank you for 3 years of support. Your presence is why I'm able to thrive as an artist and designer."
