I haven't used it in a prop yet (original intent is to build a harp and have the strings light up to the music), but bought a bunch of different colors to play and experiment with. Word of advice..... EL wire is AC! That little 2 AA battery controller is actually an inverter and the output is quite shocking if you grab the bare wires. So be careful with any exposed ends. Haven't tried splicing it yet, but looking at the how to videos, doesn't seem too bad, just not sure how easy it is to get to the shielding off the center wire.
