I have two girls that want to do a photo shoot but they like to wear dark clothes and I had a black backdrop and can't afford a white one right now.. Have many lights would I need for them to be able to wear that and be able to see their clothes

As many as it takes to light them up properly.

These examples are shots i did with uber-crappy "continuous" lighting. Note one of them is black on black on black.

Twelve inch soft boxes are tiny as far as soft boxes go.

A "bright ass light I bought from home depot" isn't all that bright at a 1/100 shutter speed.

use one of your bright ass lights from behind it will put a light outline around them...or put one of your bright ass lights on the background which will brighten it
