Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, has made over a dozen detailed costumes and many more props. We’ve highlighted her work on Adafruit before, and we’ve noticed she’s utilized LEDs in her cosplay and achieved fantastic results. She’s written and filmed tutorials and released a handful of books about creating props and making armor, and her latest efforts focus on using LEDs. The Book of Cosplay Lights will help beginners understand how to use electronics to light up their costumes.
By ordering this book you’ll get detailed guides and tutorials for the following topics:
– Introduction to LEDs
– Understanding Electricity
– Calculating Resistors
– Serial and Parallel Connections
– Calculating Battery Lifespan
– Required Tools and Materials
– Molding and Casting resin Gemstones with LEDs
– Building glowing Acrylic Spheres
– Lighting up Plexiglas
As well as the following work examples:
– Dani Moonstar (Marvel)
– Druid T9 (World of Warcraft)
– Protoss Wizard (Blizzard Crossover)
You can purchase the eBook version of The Book of Cosplay Lights and pre-order the paper version at Kamui Cosplay’s website.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
