They use .5 gal per hour each!

If so then, you may actually want to have the nozzle ends terminate well before the end of the umbrella ribs. Leaving them that far out subjects them to wind/spray scatter and might reduce the efficiency of the misted area.
Maybe also a hand pump (squeeze type ala battery-less flashlight) in the umbrella handle instead of an electrically powered pump. I also think with that, you could get away with a reservoir in the handle. =)

No electric, just pump up the pressure (like an old bicycle pump does) and you're good to go. They come in a lot of sizes too, from several gallons down to hand held, which maybe holds a quart. With a bit of engineering you could probably make them interchangable, so at times you could hand it off as a portable device to the 'victim', and for general purpose, attach the bigger reservoir to your back, and wander around the playa sharing the laughs.

Why not adapt a small kiddie pool with some suspenders. Wear it as a kind of water containing belt-trough, that the pump can pump from. The umbrella rains into the kiddie pool and the cycle repeats.
