    It is really a very useful guide to insert simple lights into your creations. I was so satisfied that I have already ordered the Advanced Cosplay Lights

    This was honestly the best thing I could have used to start learning about adding LEDs to my cosplay. It was easy to understand, made sense, and I felt prepared to actually start my project! MUST HAVE! Thank you!

    I’ve been watching Youtube for weeks and still didn’t feel like I had a complete understanding of how this all works. I decided to try this book and OMG I love it. It made everything easy to understand and went over all the things I was hoping to learn including what to do/not to do and what you will need to get started. I’ve seen pictures of circuits before and they were really intimidating but this book has a great way of breaking it down as you go and helping you understand how to read them. I can’t wait to read part two so I can animate lights.

    Really easy to use and really inspiring. I sort of dabbled in electronics with my cosplay…. mainly wiring cooling fans, but this book has so many tips to how to make lights (and fans using same principles) so much easier to make and fit!

    I’ve always been really scared of LEDs from bad past experiences, but after reading through with this, I’ve become less scared and looking forward to incorporating more LEDs into my just cosplays, but making more elaborate cosplays with LEDs! So much love and much recommendation.

    Very Handy initial intro to using LEDs. Love that there are also YouTube videos that can give you a real life end result example so you can compare how your own works out to that of the Pros.

    Being an electrical engineer, I already know this stuff. Being a closet cosplay/prop designer, it is awesome to have all this data, knowledge, and work crammed into 49 pages. Excellent work, Svetlana, and I am happy to support your efforts.
