You're able to get a kind of that...
Black light tattoos for example.

Have a look here:

I'm going to have a few parts of my tattoos "blacklighted"

Found a video of the glowing plankton. Amazing stuff.

And then a comb jellyfish. The rainbows going down the combs are actually caused by diffraction of the light as the combs move, not bioluminescence.

Wow we have some amazing creatures in this world.

I saw those before, one person at AF got som Na'vi markings in UV, but personally, I'm waiting for a real bioluminescent/glowing one because I don't really go anywhere with UV.

Hello. This was an interesting thread so I will wake it up again.

Here is a very inspiring lecture about bioluminiscence by Dr Edith Widder:

Edith Widder: Glowing life in an underwater world | Video on TED.com

About Edith Widder:

Quote:
A specialist in bioluminescence, Edith Widder helps design and invent new submersible instruments and equipment to study bioluminescence and enable unobtrusive observation of deep-sea environments. One of these instruments, the Eye in the Sea observatory, has produced footage of rare sharks, squid and never-before-seen bioluminescent displays.

The mushrooms? IIRC, that genus is fairly poisonous...

Would be nice if you could eat them and turn luminescent though...
