I was trying to recreate this myself! I found one fabric, I'm probably going to order a remnant for a friend for Christmas.

As Kitman said, there is glow-in-the-dark paint. You can actually find paint and dye that is made for fabric. You could dye a shirt with the glow in the dark fabric in order for it to glow. Another thing I just found today actually is actual glow in the dark fabric. If you go to glorope.com and click on fabric at the top right, you can order a sheet of fabric that glows in the dark and will continue to glow for 10 years.

you might look into those glow-stick chemicals that kids use during halloween.

You can buy glow-in-the-dark paint - maybe you could thin it with the appropriate solvent and then use it as a dye?
