You might want to consider using conductive thread, which will open up many possibilities. There are a few instructables on here that show how to do this.

you could have the glove without buttons, and just have the positive wires going to the tips of the glove and have a metal plate (or similar surface) that acts as a ground to complete the circuit. just an idea :-/
