Anthony Tedesco created this Halloween costume with flashing electroluminescent wire for his son and entered it in the Make: Halloween Contest 2009. More pics of the costume and the build, including a schematic, are available in his photostream. The EL strand sequencing is controlled by a Microchip PIC10F202.
