Homemade flash diffusers for Canon’s macro twin flash

As winter doesn’t have much insect activity, it’s the season I use to work on my equipment.  Yesterday I tried out a new arrangement to diffuse the heads on my mt-24ex twin flash when the heads are mounted on long, moveable arms. Here’s a time-lapse video showing the construction, plus a short clip of the gear in use:

Note the effect of the diffusion:

A bare, undiffused flash produces harsh shadows and glare
A diffused flash provides softer, more even lighting
