the Dalek laser can be achieved by using the neon light and adding curves onto the hilt and tip.

The bubble thing i can't help you with

i may be able to help with the "bubble thing"

If You Mean a shield like dome i have just the thing


get your footage and make a copy of it so you have 2 exactly the same on top of each other on the topmost copy grade it with Grade: Waves and then after you have your settings done make a mask on the topmost around the area you want your dome then that area should become wavy!

Hope this helps
