Tron. daft punk el wire suit!

I laid my design out with yellow yarn, then ordered around 100ft of el wire. The color i chose was red-orange. I hand sewed the wire to a leather jacket and regular denim jeans with finishing line. Glue will not work. I learned the hard way. i used 2 power inverters and 16 AA battery to power the suit. The helmet was made from clay then a mold was made. I poured the helmet with smooth cast plastic resin. Then i used hot melt glue to attached el wire to helmet

Although you may need to MacGyver your costume a little.
