The diffuser is fashioned from the side of a gallon milk jug. The rig does look a tad ungainly but fashion never has concerned me; only results count.
This shot was made with the diffuser. Note the overall lighting and detail in the lens mount area.
The same shot, this time without the diffuser. I find the lighting to be harsher with less detail in the shadows.
Whether I will ultimately find this diffuser to be a useful tool remains to be seen but at least I have no trouble justifying the cost!
