Here’s the video collection of our prop and costume builds that include electronics. We still have a lot to learn about wiring, soldering, and arduino projects, but that’s part of the fun! Bill goes over some lighting basics in his Foamsmith: How to Create Foam Armor Costumes eBook. Also Kamui Cosplay has a great eBook for lighting called The Book of Cosplay Lights.
