Just use copper wires. I wouldn't try and use insulated wires, but hang the wire on pieces of insulation - polystyrene would be good. PVC tends to be hygroscopic and therefore leaky.

Any kind of wire that is made for conducting electricity would work, but I don't think you can generate enough static to turn and electrostatic motor.
