How to make a lighted dog collar?

The days are getting shorter and my time at the dog park involves some darkness. I don't want to lose my dogs and I don't want the same lighted collar like everyone else purchased. Lighted collars out there are very limited in style AND expensive.

 Electroluminescent wire is probably your best bet. It is waterproof, if done right. however, you need a converter- these are cheap, about six bucks for a small one. there are several instructables on how to solder the EL wire. I am unaware of power draw, so the LED string might be a better bet.

I like this idea. I know nothing about it so am looking into it. Does seem like a good option.

If you're willing to DIY the collar, how about a EL wire?

How about this?

I like that.

Make sure it's waterproof.  You don't want it getting water inside and going off just when you need it most.
