Wow! So excited Stef and I were features on SYFY's page for our Magicians Cosplay from Dragon Con 2018. The characters on The Magicians are very stylish, but they also have, well, magic at their disposal. If they want to glamour-up, they can do that.

I get a lot of questions about how I add simple LEDs into my props and gadgets. Majority of people haven't used a soldering iron, and aren't sure about the investment to purchase one. No worries! You can use some copper tape and Bare Conductive's Electric Paint to light up a few 5mm LEDs, and no soldering required!
My little brother works for Facebook and in Building 14 they have an amazing LEGO wall! I knew I needed one in my house! LEGO has always been my therapeutic way to calm or wind down for the night. It's my way of relaxing. I decided to use the Bare Conductive Touch Board and Electric Paint to make my LEGO wall interactive and come to life! You don't need to know any programming for this project.
