You could probably just buy Vinyl tubing from any hardware store (Home Depot, Ace Hardware, OSH, Lowes). From what I remember they are less than a dollar to the foot.

Since theres no mention of chemicals in the question I presume he intends to use another light source -- led for example would be my pick.

No -- just translucent flexible tube. Short lengths would be stiff enough to hold shape.

.  Ah. That's a horse of a completely different color. I have no idea. If I were interested in knowing, I'd Google "DIY chemiluminescence". (Why is that not "chemoluminescence"? Thank goodness for spellcheck.)
