At a thrift shop for $1 or so, I found a string of ten small incan lights with 4" translucent alien bobbles attached, Hallowe'en item by the look of it. I detached one.

From dollar store came a string of ten "micro-dot" multi-colour LEDs which runs from 2AA. String was folded and stuffed into the body through hole at top of the alien's head.

Now I have my very own alien nightlight. To make it complete all it needs is the X-Files theme playing in the background.

for some reason my mind immediately went to Xenomorphs when seeing the topic of this thread, and I was like F YEAH but this is cool as well :D

Yes but does it light up...? :)

To get colour-changing or flickering alien, attach appropriate LED "tea-light" (available at Dollar Tree etc.) or similar to top of alien's head.
