The "neon tubes" you speak of is EL (electroluminescent) Wire. That shouldn't be too hard to find retailers on the internet.

As for good red lenses... tch, let me know if you find any, because I sure haven't seen any natural-looking ones.

For EL wire, you can find lots of information in the Props and Accessories Forum (http://www.cosplay.com/forumdisplay.php?f=47). Just search "EL Wire." As for good red contacts, here (http://www.cosplaylab.com/proshop/contactlens.asp?id=272)'s some from cosplay lab that are pretty much perfect, but expensive~ If you don't want to shell out the cash for those, then there are these (http://www.colorlens4less.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=27&zenid=7e758c6c) for $40.00, but just regular red contacts minus the yellow background. There's also 9mmSFX (http://9mmsfx.com/index2.html), but doesn't look like they currently carry lenses like Midna's. I hear that you can contact the guy running the site, and he might do a special order for you for slightly cheaper than the cosplay lab lenses.

If you have any other questions regarding any other costumes from LoZ, please visit The Legend of Zelda Cosplay Thread (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=98201). There are lots of nice people there who have made, or are currently working on a true form Midna, and are more than happy to help you with yours. =)
