The horns just light up. No fancy color changes or flashes, so I'm guessing the LED's will be just fine. I'll post again with the final result so I can share what works and what doesn't!
If you don't need to change color or animate, EL wire will work too.

You'll have to be careful about the green/red thing. As long as you don't put down something that's TOO green, some red will show through. Use as thin a layer on the surface as you can get away with..
