About the costume:

Canti: The entire thing is made from foam mats, sealed in PVA glue then hand painted with acrylic paint. All the colours were mixed by hand so I get the perfect shade of Canti's obscure colours... :|
His TV screen is a piece of spare perspex from my Siegfried costume supplies :XD:, just covered in reflective blue paint, so I can semi see from one side but people can't really look inside...

The Cannon: First I got an abandoned coffee table top and attached wheels so it to form the base. Then I made the side panels from PVC plastic by heating them to shape, detailing them with smaller pieces of plastic before screwing them onto the base with some metal triangles.
The gross brainy parts is expanding foam sprayed onto a box in manky patterns. I then added some colour alternating LEDs (which were kindly provided by *KrisEz) into the brains.
The barrel of the gun is pretty much a giant cardboard tube decorated with more foam craft and HEAVILY sealed with PVA glue before painting.

If there's more points of interests that I've missed, please feel free to ask me :)

I hope you enjoyed the FLCL shoot~!

I'm so happy you enjoyed this photo.
Yeah FLCL was a bit random wasn't it. There were scenes that scared me as an adult.

Thanks so much! We all had a good time working on these costumes.
