So I made this. Then a few nights ago I realized it wasn't invoking enough.
Thus I killed him. Made the American Astronaut face an awful spacedeath.
Here it is, a Requiem for Potted Planets.

The teeth are made from resin.
I took a mold of a set of real human teeth which I ordered from a dental website then cast them in white resin.
The alien is crochetted and the Astronaut is made using a stitch wrapping method and has a styrofoam core. The continents on the planets are needle felted and the mask he's wearing is a later of cut clear plastic.
The UFO is a styrofoam ball cut in half then gluestitched alone with silk at the top and green minky at the base
