How can I spruce up my sword?

I've got a project here, and it has me stumped.
I have this sword here, pic related, and it's a nice sword, you know, whatever.
But I'd like to give it some bells and whistles, you know? Give it some edge. Something special. I'd like to do it entirely by myself.
I'm open for any suggestions you give me, try to make them cosmetic only though.
One of the ideas I had myself was giving it a neon glow. I know that sounds hard as fuck to do, and it is. I have no idea how to do this. Do you have any ideas on some methods of how I could give it a light blue glow? It's okay if it's glow in the dark only, that's fine. Paint, lights, whole 9 yards, if it can accomplish this goal then don't be afraid to suggest it.
The blade is made out of metal.
In case anyone's wondering, I got it for like 20 bucks. I'll drop a link later if anyone cares.
Thank you for your time.

Hello /diy/. I come seeking your sage advice.
I'm designing a custom prosthesis by utilising the thermoplastic properties of your average coke bottle. Apply heat and it will deform, before reforming into a solid shape once heat is removed, right? Simple.
I know how I'm going to safely cast the stump and mould the majority of the limb around that by warping plastic over a clay shape, however I'm 'stumped' when it comes to joint mechanisms. I need a workable elbow, wrist and finger joints and don't know what is suitable.
They can either be loose or fairly stiff, but movement through degrees of freedom is necessary, even if it has to be manually repositioned.
