Help for first cosplay

So this is my first cosplay that I am attempting and I am starting small. I am trying to do Ben Mason from the show Falling Skies and I have run into a problem with doing the neck spikes. The best pictures that I could find of the neck spikes were these:
The spikes glow at the end which I was planning on doing with LED lights. My problems I have run into are how do I attach the spikes to my skin and what would be the best was to conceal a wire going to a battery for the lights or if a different way was better.

Hello and welcome.

You could use spirit gum to attach them to your skin, then blend it out with liquid latex. You'd want to build something around it to give it that type of spiked appearance, rather than just being plain LEDs stuck to your skin. As I'm not completely experienced in that area though, I'll let someone else suggest.
