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
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.
Step 2: Shapes and things
Once I was confident that:
1. the shapes were just right.
2. I had two contacts (+/-) connecting to each shape.
3. I could wire them all together easily in the suit based on the current configuration.
I had my girlfriend cut them out! haha. Seriously, she's good with a blade.
