I've been working on making some backlit conbadges for Klorsis, MadDog, and myself for when we go to Megaplex next weekend.  This is the prototype I've been drumming together.

Looking good! ^^ I had glowing con badges for myself and Ico Harbinger at RF 2013, but what we went with was printed art (on cardstock) on the front with holes cut out (via x-acto knife, though laser cutting would have been nice) mounted on EL panels for a nice, luminous glow. Never really got them nice and spiffy since it was more or less just a test run, and never really found a good solution on how to wear the AA battery packs, though.

I'd be interested to hear what you went with here. Looks like... LEDs and laser-cut acrylic?

One white LED settled into the tapered end of an acrylic mold before curing and a diffuser glued on the back with a translucent white surface on top.  So it's really just a single white LED and a light reflector.  Finish off the gaps with a narrow strip of reflective tape and the light has nowhere to go but through the translucent top.
