DIY Camera parts

/p/hotogs of DIY ... let's see your shit.
Had a Gorillapod knockoff for my old camera. When I upgraded to my Nikon, the cheap g-pod wasn't strong enough to hold up the big camera. So I upgraded to a beefier one. (which still works with my older/smaller camera.)
So ... broken gorillapod. Took the busted ballhead off, revealing a 1/4-20 stud on the hinge.
Enter the strobe. I can fire this remotely off my cameras, but the cheesy little foot kinda limits where you can put it.
Looked online, couldn't find anything that'd mate a 1/4-20 thread to a hot shoe. I cound find a lot of other things that went the other way - putting a 1/4-20 stud on top of the shoe, but nothing like what I was looking for.
Using some leftover Delrin from my snowmobile camera case project, I knocked out some parts on teh mill after hours at work.
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.
