Cosplay LED Basics

Considering that numerous of you asked, here is a new LED video clip tutorial! I maintained it really easy, generally to show you how basic it is to mount some elegant lights! In my full publication you’ll locate complete step-by-step instructions for bigger circuits, guidelines for making gemstones, constructing from various tasks and schematics for anything you intend to build. I also did the math for you! ☺ I have actually utilized routine blue 3V LEDs, 2032 button cell batteries (3V )as well as wires with 2x 0.14 mm2. With one LED the battery lasts for about 11 hours, so perfect for a convention day!

The video is a bit old, but could you v(or anyone) suggest some stores where I can find leds? I don’t think my local art & crafts store carries anything like this. Would home supply stores (like Home Depot) be a better place to look?

Your videos are sooo helpful Kamui, I keep coming back to your channel to rewatch old videos because I learn something different every single time! If that makes sense xD

I’m new to cosplay, so this may seem like a silly question. Is there a way you can light the LEDs with a gun trigger? Like, when you pull the trigger of a gun, the LEDs light up like a gunshot.

your videos have been a inspiration over the years. ill be doing my first light up prop, so i went and bought your digital books. i just wish you had amazon links to these little pieces (switches, batteries and such).

The coincidence here is that I was looking at videos for ideas on how to create an Omega Yato from Fire Emblem Fates… And here I’m being taught about LEDs by someone who shares names with the Avatar.

how do you hide the lights?

Oh wow! I honestly had no idea working with LEDs was this easy!

That advice you gave was actually pretty bad. Hooking up LEDs is nowhere near as easy as you made it seem. Specifically the use of resistors. I did notice however that you covered a lot of the import topics in your book. Wish you had mentioned them in this video.
