A close-up view of the Ultimate Water Gun Head-Mounted High-Pressure Metalflake Eval-Kneival-Style Water Cannon (bikini sold separately)
Here's Tara wearing the Ultimate Water Gun helmet made from a 1970s Shoei Rebel metalflake helmet with a smoke bubble shield, some garden hose parts, and the regulator from a thirty-year-old scuba tank. (Angie Pontani made the bikini; she makes all their costumes.)
The helmet and bubble shield was new-old-stock, and smelled AWFUL, like old plastic sometimes does. Nevertheless, Tara never complained. Those Pontanis are pretty damn awesome.
