Looking for o-rings that are reactive to blacklight. I am thinking of making costumes for "exotic dancers" and the glowy o-rings would be cool. Any suggestions?

TRL used to sell "Glow In The Dark" rubber rings, but they don't have any supplier for those anymore.
I'm also not sure if they react to black light or not.

If you don't care about macro-maille, you can give a try at glowsicks.

The dyes used in glow sticks usually exhibit fluorescence when exposed to ultraviolet radiation—even a spent glow stick may therefore shine under a black light.

What if you soaked your o-rings in laundry detergent? I know that it will glow on walls and not show up in regular light. If you could soak them and than seal it somehow you could make your own.

A suggestion: glow-in-the-dark plastic pony beads, and embellish the maille with them. [weave=Beadlock Spiral 2 in 1] is a weave that works well with pony beads.

I'm not sure but I would think TRL's engineered plastic rings would be blacklight reactive. Not the black but perhaps the clear. If I had a blacklight I'd check for you.

C&T Designs have 16g 1/4 UV rings that react under blacklight.
