Okay all... so more than a few people have asked for this Instructable.  I hope I am able to explain enough.  Sadly I didn't completely document the whole process, but here it goes!

Step 1: Electroluminecent Tech

EL for short, comes in many different forms.  Sheets, strips, tape, ribbon, even flexible fabric (although I didn't discover this version until after my suit was made.)  The version I used was a cuttable form I first saw on a webseries on Revision3 internet TV.  I found it on the site: http://electroluminescence-inc.com/

Attached are some photos.  The checked pattern around the perimeter alternates the connection points (anode + / cathode -) which allows the sheet to be cut so long as two opposite contacts are connected to the sheet.
