Adam’s Guide to Cosplay and Prop Electronics!

Adam walks us through how to draw and implement a wiring diagram to incorporate simple electronics like lights and fans to your cosplay and props. Electronics can be an intimidating part of prop building, but they can be kept simple and implemented without any soldering if you use off-the-shelf components like wire nuts and alligator clips to test your setups. Adam gives a demo of his personal electronics process using a foam helmet by adding lights, fans, and a power switch!
