I am a Violin and Viola teacher. My students showed me a clip of young violinists playing with ‘Light Sabre’ Bows and being a Star Wars fan it was irresistible to me so I am now planning my Christmas Concert around the Star Wars repertoire with appropriate weaponry, sorry bows. (with a great story about my students escaping a Hutt and battling storm troopers with their bows)
This is the general idea.
The very helpful James has suggested this:

I’m wanting to figure out everything I need to make 15 bow transforming kits.
My Questions are: (I am very out of depth here so these may be very silly - apologies in advance)
Do I need to order additional mating connectors?
There will be soldering be involved, yes? I can probably get my friendly tech elves to do it if required. Although they might prefer if your elves offer that service?
I will be buying the wire in the 2 something metre lengths and cutting to the 50cm lengths.
I also need about 20 cms of regular wire (non light up) to run from where the EL wire finishes (the silver bit in the pic) and down past the hand to the battery pack. (the El wire will be attached to the bow stick most of the way up the bow from there. I am hoping super sticky double sided tape will keep it on.
