    Pretty awesome books! Step by step how-to’s, with tons of photos, jam-packed with information. Broaches important subjects like uniboobs, codpieces and underwear with aplomb. Bonus: also a section on wiring lights! Best e-book EVER.

    Thanks to mechanical engineering class and 3D Printing, I know how to make props from A to Z.
    I’ve made myself Boba Fett’s EE3, Mass Effect’s M92-Mantis, M8-Avenger, and lots of other stuff…
    But I didn’t know how to make cosplay armor…until now…
    This book is fantastic and I can’t wait to make my N7 Armor using all this knowledge.
    Big thanks to the authors!
    That’s an awesome guide!

    My husband bought me this book along with all the supplies needed to start cosplaying as a birthday present. This is an excellent book for those getting their feet wet. Very informative, humorous, detailed, and easy to follow. Bill is THE guy to get you started in this hobby. I knocked out my first cosplay (Female Onyx Guard, Gears of War: Judgement) that summer and have been building ever since. I would definitely recommend this book!

    All the way around this is an awesome book. They way they explain things helps out a lot. If there were a foam smith for dummies, this would be it.
