Retro Futuristic Alien Antennae

My daughter insisted I use this shadowy photograph.
These alien antennae feature moving parabolic dishes which swing around as the wearer is grooving during Ludo's Summer Concert Tour, Space Dracula's Basketball Expo.

These space-themed accessories were built from polymer clay over bamboo skewers and attached to a headband.  I really enjoyed making them!  The hardest part were the parabolic dishes which I formed around the concave base of a shot glass which was liberally dusted with cornstarch.

I liked the idea of a retro futuristic scheme so I pulled the colors from 1950's cafes.
