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.


well, you could be near a tesla coil :P you want to light up a typical flourescent bulb, or incandescent?

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?
