I purchased Blue EL wire (P408A).
Doesn't look blue to me.

This?
It almost looks like the aqua version, but I doubt the blue one is as blue as your wheel colouring LED', it's more a sky blue. The technology is very different, more like the phosphors in vacuum tubes.

Looks cool to me and a little more purple than anything else.

If a closer color match is needed, maybe the Flexible Silicone Neon-Like LED Strip is a solution. A blue version exists, or a color changeable version might be even more fun.
