    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.

    Just got my book (already! Super fast shipping :D) And I love it! I don’t make cosplay costumes but I do make sculptures and some props. It’ll be very useful for my projects! Thanks to this awesome book, LEDs aren’t as intimidating anymore. Thank you :)

    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.

    Amazing book! There is nothign similar available on the cosplay book market as far as I know. Without this book I would have never been able to light up my first cosplay projects.
    And seriously guys… Everything looks better with LEDs :D

    I know zero about connecting wires and such. This book was like gold to me! Written so that anyone can understand it! It’s a must have reference for any cosplayer!

    Intimidating at first but read through the book a second time and LEDs don’t seem so scary now! Super simplified and useful.
