Chung-Hay,

Here's the link to Janet Hansen's "enlighted" (not enlightened, see the 
subtle difference?) business of illuminated clothing.  Like I said, 
right up your alley, but VERY expensive.  Pretty much everything is 
custom and she charges about $10/LED.  So most things are in the 
multi-hundreds or even thousands of dollar range.

If you're thinking of doing this kind of stuff as a business, Janet is 
totally a great role model!

Also, I mentioned my (embryonic) idea for a choker which pulses lights 
in time with your heart beat.  The wiki page is a bit out of date:

I got the armatures from Rebecca's Wholesale Novelties, only $2.15 each. 
  Sorry I didn't have any on hand for you to see, they are cheap (i.e. 
plastic and crappy) but still an excellent inspiration for what's possible:

Hope to see you again at the meeting - don't let the electrical stuff 
intimidate you, it's actually a lot of fun making stuff and showing it 
off at our meetings and to random people that you meet :-)

Eric
