    A cheap plastic bowl and a gutter attachment for the strobe to go into. Some white and black paint.

    One of the wife's plastic food containers screwed into the bowl and gutter thing.

    Looking inside the food container. This is a strip of aluminum header tape used to block the light from exiting the end of the "cup" and to reflect the light into the bowl.

    My 580EX attached to the bowl/gutter thing with a strip of velcro.

    The results.

    Not really. It's pretty light weight. But then again, I've only walked around my house with it. I'm sure in a crowd it's going to be a bit more awkward.
