The Deku Struggle

Plan on making a Deku cosplay from Hero Academia of his new outfit as close as I can to it. What im wondering, is if there is anyway to have an LED/button system hooked up in my right glove where every time I push the button while making a fist, it activates lights under like this gif shows. Its kind of a long stretch but I'd really like a Deku cosplay that stands out in the crowd.

"Compromise. That's what everyone has insisted on. And so I have learnt it. But differently than most, I think. I realize now that it will take time, that the road ahead is long and shrouded in darkness. It is a road which will not always take me where I wish to go - and I doubt I will live to see it end. But I will travel down it nonetheless."
"For at my side walks hope. In the face of all that insists I turn back, I carry on: this, this is my compromise.

Well a tact switch should do then. It's small and kind of fragile. So be careful with it.

Here's a link to what it looks like. https://sc01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1p.AtG...Xq6xXFXXX7.jpg
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

Totally doable. I would use what Midnight said (honestly, when DON'T I agree with Midnight lol), and you can put it in your hand. Are you using a glove as in a skintone armsock with fingers? Because that's what I'm assuming. You can rig it under that in your palm with something a little larger on top that will help it press down when the fist is made (similar to a fistpacker, but used to help press the button. Without exact placement, it'll be very hard to hit the button without anything helping you press it in.
