‘Alien Abduction’ table lamp decoration

I wanted to try and scratch-build my own alien abduction lamp using household objects (egg-cup, disposable champagne glass, LED reading lamp, transparent globe Christmas tree decoration, coloured felt drinks coasters) assisted by toys.

In pre-manufactured versions, it always bugged me that the victim held in the tractor beam was fixed to the base. I wanted to create my own version where they would be held in place by the element creating the beam so that the whole event would look a bit more realistic.
