This little fellow makes an appearance in Final Fantasy 8 out in the middle of nowhere and demands some elixir. He was a gift for a friend. I really wanted to figure out a way to make the tip of his antenna glow. Props for character design go to Square/Enix obviously.

You could try some glow in the dark paint or neon paint.
Also look for a small flashlight or battery operated tea lights at dollar stores or craft stores.

being a HUGE video game addict and lover of RPG games the final fantasys rock my world and I totally dig your Puu-Puu Alien!  I always keep elixers handy for when I spot him too! 

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

You're right! Neon paint would be perfect!

Oh god..this brings back memories!  Makes me want to get the game out and drop everything and starting re-playing it!  Cheesy
For making the tip glow, what about inserting a small LED mechanism?  Like the ones in those little squeeze lite keychains?  Or for a less elaborate option, I am sure you could find some kind of glow in the dark stuff, like paint, nail polish, or even polymer clay perhaps.

Yes, I have one of those, too. ^^;
