Tesla illusion ideas / wireless light bulb help Answered

So I was considering going as Nickola Tesla for Halloween and showcasing his ideas as sort of party tricks...like a Tesla turbine blade and whatnot. But seeing as he is primarily known for electricity work, I thought it would be cool if I could somehow come up with a way to make a lightbulb glow while holding it. I tossed around the idea of running a powersource to a conductive glove to power it and also of making a self contained powered bulb but not sure. Any ideas on how to make some sort of electrical phenomenon illusion? Thanks.

How would this fit? On Halloween you dress up as whoever or whatever...Some friends and I are going as "The Five" from a SciFi show called Sanctuary...Tesla, The Invisible Man, Sherlock Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and Dr. Magnus. That is exactly what I was after, thanks alot.

How would this fit with Halloween?
The lightbulb makes me think of Uncle Fester, you might be able to do that?
