Are you looking to up your cosplay game but aren’t sure where to start? Are you looking for resources to help your with your sewing, foamsmithing or propbuilding? Well, Humble Bundle has just the thing for you!
If you don’t know what Humble Bundle is, here is how they describe themselves on their website:
Humble Bundle is a distribution platform selling games, ebooks, software, and other digital content. Since Humble’s founding in 2010, our mission has been to support charity (“Humble”) while providing awesome content to customers at great prices (“Bundle”). We started by offering only game bundles, but have branched out to include an online storefront, a monthly subscription service, a publishing initiative, and lots more. Essentially, they provide a collection of selected content for a great value while also raising money for charities at the same time. You can pay as much or as little as you like, but the more that you pay, the more you get.
Currently, Humble Bundle is offering a bundle of cosplay books called “Humble Book Bundle: Cosplay 2.0”. They have generated a collection of books from the likes of Svetlana Quindt of Kamui Cosplay, Bill Doran of Punished Props, Adam Savage, Mood Fabrics, and many more.
The ebooks available touch on subjects such a basic sewing, cosplay and costume sewing, fabric selection, prop making, making costume armor, moldmaking, body paint, electronics, 3D printing, and much more! In total, there are nearly 20 books available. If you purchase all the books, that’s a $240 value for as little as $15. There are three price tiers available starting at as little as $1. The charity that this bundle supports is Doctors Without Borders. It is an international humanitarian medical non-governmental organization that is most known for working in conflict zones. As the money goes to charity, any extra money you would like to give above the $15 is greatly appreciated. The bottom of the page list the bundle’s top contributors, as well as how much money has been raised so far.
Here is a full list of the books available at each tier:
Tier 1 – $1
Tier 2 – $8
Tier 3 – $15
The ebooks are DRM-free, meaning you can download them to your favorite reading device anytime, anywhere. They are also multi-format, available in PDF, ePub, and MOBI file types to support as many devices as possible.
Humble Bundles are only available for a limited time. This one is currently available for 13 more days, or until approximately May 29th. If you’re not sure if you want the bundle at this time, you can choose to be reminded before this offer expires.
