   Do you have a specific application in mind?  Without that info, I can't
really suggest anything that is sure to be a good choice. But, I will
through out a few ideas...

  -  Black light.  Sure it needs dark conditions, but the luminex fabric
also needs darkness to be noticable.

  -  An internally illuminated puppet.  The body is clear (perhaps made from
plastic bottles) and has lightbulbs inside.

  - Electroilluminescencs (sp?)  This is a technology used in products that
look like neon, but are built from flexble plastic tubing about 1/16 wide to
3/32 wide.  They are electrically powered. The same technology is available
as a flat sheet as well.  The flat sheets can be cut to any shape.    Look
for "Livewire" as one trade name.
