Just wanted to share my latest creation for my son's room. The Alien Abduction Lamp
DSC Alien Lamp
I have never been one to copy things exactly so I had to add the bubble on top---->
(an applesauce cup) for another alien who controls the tractor beam. There is a piece of plexiglass under the alien that I frosted with my sander to let the light through but hide the works of the lamp.
A plexiglass ring I cut myself, I got it at Home Depot. The aliens glow in the dark once the light is shut off, thanks to an under 6 dollar light kit also from Home Depot. I used tools I hadn't used in awhile and a router attachment for my Dremel-like tool that I had never used.
As usual I have a twisted sense of humor now we know why they keep coming for the cows. ; )
I know I spent a little more than the original (about 20 dollars), but not as much as some I have seen on the web, I am thrilled with how it came out, and most importantly so is my son. By the way my husband thought it was so cool he had me make him one too.
